X-Men '97 is conquering Disney+. The new animated series follows the 1990s cartoon and breathes new life into a group of mutants who use their powers to help others. The Professor X team must cope without their mentor, who has passed away. Cyclops, Jean, Wolverine, Storm, Rogue, Gambit, Jubilee and the rest face new challenges and adversaries, with Magneto hanging around again.

Magneto is regarded as a villain or an anti-hero – to tell the truth, it’s difficult to judge due to the changing attitude of this character, who often stands on different sides of the barricade. The mutant wielding magnetic abilities is an old friend of Professor X and shares a considerable age difference with the main characters of the X-Men '97 TV series.

Magneto's age in X-Men '97

Admittedly, we don't know Magneto's exact age, but it can be estimated more or less, thanks to the information we have about the character. We know, for example, that he was a child at the time of the Holocaust, so between 1941 and 1945. And the action of the series takes place in the late 1990s, which means that Magneto is about 60 years old. We are unable to determine exact age, because at no stage was it specifically stated when this character was born or how old he was. The mere information that he should be about 60 years old coincides with how Magneto looks in X-Men '97, where he is shown as a man with gray, or rather white, hair already and a face covered with wrinkles.

So as you can see, Magneto is one of the older and more experienced characters in X-Men '97. And if you're curious about his current fate, you can find out in the new animated series, which you can watch on Disney+.
