Elon Musk on Monday bizarrely compared George Soros to the "X-Men" mutant Magneto, claiming without substantiation that the billionaire "hates humanity."
His tweet on Monday, which offered no context for his comparison, simply stated: "Soros reminds me of Magneto."
"You assume they are good intentions. They are not. He wants to erode the very fabric of civilization. Soros hates humanity," he noted.
Magneto is a mutant character in the Marvel Comics, who possesses the superhuman ability to generate and control magnetic fields. Magneto was a Holocaust survivor, whose arc in the comics took him from a clear-cut villain who believed humans and mutants could not coexist, to an anti-hero allying with the X-Men.
