I could tell everyone I'm from the future if I thought they would believe me. I could murder Hitler if I could get to Germany. Or could I? Time paradox talk abounds in the history department... All those are fine questions for a late-night study session. They do not matter here. I could no more let St. Paul's burn down than I could kill Hitler. No, that is not true. I found out yesterday in the Whispering Gallery. I could kill Hitler if I caught him setting fire to St. Paul's. "

Nazism Germany 1942 Roman, Steven A. X-Men/Doctor Doom: The Chaos Engine. New York: BP Books (2000); pg. 8. "'...And isn't Magneto supposed to be a survivor of the Holocaust?

Nazism Germany 1942 Roman, Steven A. X-Men/Doctor Doom: The Chaos Engine. New York: BP Books (2000); pg. 54. "And if there was one thing he [Magneto] had learned from the guards and staff at Auschwitz--as he had watched each member of his family slowly starve to death, or march into the infamous 'showers,' or scream in agony and terror as they were used as part of some horrific eugenic experiment--it was the variety of ways available to kill another person without resorting to superpowers. The Nazis had been excellent tutors, and the boy who had become a man behind the guard towers and barbed wire fences of the camp had been most eager to demonstrate all that he had learned after the war . . . on each and every one of them that he could find. Over fifty years later, some of those 'lessons' still stuck in his mind. " [Other refs., not in DB, thought not a central focus of novel.]
