Biographical Information
Name: Magneto's Helmet

Magneto's Helmet Worn by the infamous mutant, Magneto, the helmet can shield him from the highest level telepaths such as Charles Xavier, Jean Grey and Emma Frost.

An iconic part of the Master of Magnetism's appearance, Magneto is rarely seen without his ornate red and purple helmet. Technology wired into the inside of the helmet blocks out all but the strongest telepathic attacks.


  • In the X-Men Trilogy Magneto (played by Ian McKellen) uses his iconic helmet in X-Men The Movie,X2: X-Men United, and X-Men: The Last Stand. As in the comics, the helmet is shown capable of blocking out telepathic intrusion, namely from Charles Xavier and Jason Stryker.
  • X-Men: First Class - The origins of the helmet was revealed, where it is showed that the helmet was initially given to Sebastian Shaw by the Russian military as a gift to celebrate their collaboration. At the close of the film, a young Magneto kills Shaw and claims the helmet for himself, which he later paints red.
  • X-Men: Days of Future Past - The helmet reappears in the sequel, where it is shown as part of a collection in the Pentagon. The helmet was taken from Magneto after he was arrested and imprisoned by the U.S. government, but he reclaims it. The helmet's color scheme and ornamentation is once again shown to have changed.
