Michael Fassbender – Magneto

4. Michael Fassbender – Magneto

8 of 11

Fassbender brought a 007 quality to his role in X-Men: First Class. He played a jet-setting, revenge-seeking, Nazi-hunting Erik Lensherr.  One could argue that X-Men: First Class, at the core, is about Magneto’s transition to villainy and his rift with Charles Xavier. Nevertheless, Fassbender stole the show as the stoic, angry Holocaust survivor who wanted revenge and a mutant uprising.
