More specifically, just in case you are curious how he was de-aged, the mutant Alpha -- which he was trying to use to take over the world in a Defenders book -- evolved over the course of the story into a god-like being. Alpha then turned on his former master and decided that Magneto and the brotherhood needed to start over, so he reduced them all to infants. Later, Shiar tech restored them to maturity, but younger than their original age. Later, in the Trial of Magneto, Erik was revelaed to be, physically, a man in his mid thirties.
Oh, and Magneto and Rogue are a great couple. I waited impatiently ever since the Savage Land for a writer willing to try that with them again.

Question:-why couldn't Magneto be an 80-year old man in the early X-Men stories? it's his superpowers, intelligence, and charisma that make him a threat, it's not like he's some brawler who relies on physical strength (unless you count Jeph Loeb's take on him, lol)

Reading those stories, he pretty clearly isn't. And even if you could stretch a point, in a few more years he will have had to be in his 90s, and then his 100s...
BTW, Rogue and Juggernaut sound good!

Ishmael, Moses and Job, knew the divine order.
Everytime Rogue runs her hands through Mags' locks it is a tribute to that true silver fox, Mike Carey. It is nothing less than an honour to read about Rogneto.
I want a Rogue miniseries based in her HOM life, and her road to be the Queen.
They are perfect for each other. I say this without actually giving a crap about either character. Let the story play out.
Some stories from the 90s have even shown him nude, and represent him as aesthetically good looking as Rogue. You can even tell from the muscles that under the costume he is a fine specimen like Rogue, who must be awful cold.
