Sean Connery Is Magneto

Uncanny X-Men from a couple of weeks ago gave us a new look Magneto. Not just the bald head.

agent But also the beard.


And not just the beard. But also the hat.


Okay, that's not shaken or stirred but I know that look.



Ba-dum-ba-daaa, ba-da-da…


Ba-da-da-daa, da da daaaaah…



Exotic locales, secret agents, dangerous bars, Magneto is James Bond. Even more, Sean Connery as now, as James Bond. And while Connery never tried out for Magneto in the films, he was approached to play Sir Ian McKellan's other big role, Gandalf, but turned it down.

Is this a stretch? I don't think so. Because there's one hell of a giveaway at the end…



Ba dah! Ba dum! Ba da! Ba dum! Baaaaaaooooooo…..
