Magneto was behind the assassination of John F. Kennedy, at least in the “X-Men: Days of Future Past” timeline. A new viral video titled “The Bent Bullet” makes the case for Erik “Magneto” Lehnsherr’s involvement in JFK’s assassination in 1963.
“Half a century ago, Magneto was implicated in the mutant plot to assassinate President John F. Kennedy,” the video description reads. “The events of that fateful day in November have been a point of contention between humans and the mutants ever since.”
Seems Magneto used his powers to push Lee Harvey Oswald’s second bullet to fatally wound the president. Marvel and Fox have also launched a Bent Bullet website that provides more details about the film and Magneto’s fate. JFK was involved with Project: WideAwake and every X-Men comic fan knows that means Sentinels.
Check out the video below and head over to the Bent Bullet website to dive into the full experience. “X-Men: Days of Future Past” hits theaters May 23, 2014.
