    Also, I've repeatedly objected to Magneto being drafted as a PM in the past, and although I gave up doing so as it happened so often, my view is that if you take Magneto at PM, then you don't get the benefit of his high-end showings, i.e. drawing on the magnetic fields of other planets, or tossing aircraft carriers around. And if Terrific uses his prep window to demagnetize his team's items, as I think he'd at least attempt to do (he'd be mad not to), then a PM-level "classic" Magneto would be significantly hampered in this environment.

VERY good poin, SD! That is something I hadn't considered! Magneto being a PM would logically limit his powerset.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
