- Magnetism: Magneto has extreme control over magetism in any form, using this power to create an immense variety of effects. His powers are directly related to the amount of effort and concentration used, with large feats requiring more time and effort. His maximum operational range is approximately a two mile radius but the upper limits of his powers have not been explored. These powers can be used to create effects in nearly any combination provided he has sufficient concentration. He can manipulate magnetic materials, like iron, and diamagnetic materials (like lead or copper), including stopping most weapons currently in use (including missiles and bullets) and throwing vehicles. This also comes with the ability to fly indefinitely at various speeds using the earth's magnetic field. He has not yet been able to manipulate the iron in living organisms or the earth's magnetic field beyond his flight.
- Mental Resistance: Erik has a strong will and has trained himself to resist telepathy and mental magics. He can resist nearly all forms of Telepathy, however doing so makes it more difficult concentrate on his powers and can even disable them temporarily. When taken by surprised Erik is quite vulnerable to powerful telepaths.
