The Holocaust and all of its specific imagery are too deeply ingrained in the character's DNA. And for a movie, the Holocaust is still the best one to use because it's the most famous. People get it more than anything else.

So ingrained that they went three films without mentioning it and only use the imagery to push his betrayal in a single film about him and Xavier set in the 60s.

Functionally the only thing ingrained in Magneto is his relationship with Xavier.

The functional concept behind a different massacre would be the concept that it doesn't take someone being Hitler to deem your people a threat. That history has countless genocides and sitting idly by could make Mutants next.

Could be Kurdish too. That might be iffy though.
Thinking is overrated. Like Pants.

Don't worry guys the moment the gap with WW2 becomes super ridiculous WW3 will come and fix that.

Magneto should be decoupled from it, and replace with a fictional stand in..

I just rewatched the "Enter Magneto" X-Men TAS episode and his origin is that some army invaded his "small country", whatever that was XD

It's never going anywhere, it's too central to his character. Getting rid of that is like getting rid of Batmans parents dying.

I dunno, Steve Rodgers literally punched Hitler as an adult but here he is not 100 years old.

it'd be a copout to freeze Magneto too

Bucky, Red Skull, Nick Fury, Dum Dum all hail from WWII. Cop out don't stop Marvel.

Just cast a guy in his 30's, give him gray hair and say that his powers of magnetism prevent wrinkles/slows aging

My partner is Kurdish. She and her family came here ad refugees when she was little and where she lived was being ravaged by war.
Would be nice to see a Kurdish character having a big part on film, less nice to have brutal killings around them.
