Erik came of age in a concentration camp. You better believe that as soon as he got his hands on some of that Nazi gold, he started spending it on personal luxuries like expensive suits, haircuts, hotels, and air travel. He also has an unusually high degree of personal vanity for a guy who isn’t characterised as effeminate or overpoweringly showy, which is something you don’t see much in movies set in the present day.

He’s self-contained to the point of obsession, which ties into his self-image as a superhuman and, later, as a leader of the mutant rebellion against the inferiority of humankind. Always clean-shaven and neat, his pocket squares are folded to a perfect right-angle, and he has an outfit for every occasion. Erik Lensherr is a construct of the well-dressed, well-prepared, well-travelled 20th century man, and I’m almost certain that he got many of those attributes just from magazines and 1960s advertising, because he sure as hell doesn’t socialise. If this movie hadn’t come out in 2011 then I’m sure we’d see him smoking some very classy cigarettes as well. — The costumes of X-Men: First Class, Part 2: Menswear.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I wish the X-Men would remember from time to time that before everything went down the crapper, Erik saved every one of their lives.

By special request, Erik stuck in his sweater, which shrunk in the wash. I normally agonize and agonize over drawings, but this little joke sketch came quickly and turned out to be the best Erik I’ve ever drawn. Huh.
I thought it would be funny to make him serious and sexy while stuck in a sweater.

I love everything about this XD

me2!

This so totally happened to p!Erik at some point after he and Charles moved into an apartment together. I bet Charles was trying SO HARD to be the Best Boyfriend/Flatmate Ever that he tried doing Erik’s laundry, with precisely these results.

Holy shit I have such a lady boner for Erik Lehnsherr, especially when he goes all BAMF

^^ holy shit. that entire comment and also god the running. *faints*

That’s the jacket that is still in Erik’s room in Westchester.

That’s the jacket that is still in Erik’s room in Westchester. = Instant Headcanon
And sometimes late at night when all the students have gone to bed and Charles is feeling particularly lonely and nostalgic, he’ll go into Erik’s old room and take the jacket out of the closet and just run his fingers over the soft leather and imagine that a bit of Erik’s scent still lingers…

No one ever asks why the Professor can be found sometimes in the musty room across from his own.  It is an ongoing mystery amongst the student population. How two rooms are left untouched in the Professor’s wing, wheelchair tracks in the thick layer of dust are the only sign that time passes by. Kitty had accidentally walked through the wall early one morning, on her way to the kitchen to get a glass of water, only to pause in the closet where she sees the Professor’s profile and a soft leather jacket in his lap. Bobby had passed by the room at another time to hear the sound of silence even though the lights were on and a shadow remained unmoving by the door.  Some say the jacket belonged to the Professor’s father, other’s say it is the jacket of someone the Professor once knew and then there is Jean, who had accidentally learnt the truth during one of her lesson’s with the Professor, about his sister and a man who had once been as close as lovers before she had been ejected from her mind.  And so the jacket stays in the room where a man named Erik left his belongings, kept in a room preserved to look like days of the past, awaiting the day when Magneto returned to be by the Professor’s side.

WAH! The feels are back!

ow. right in the feels. T_T

Fuck. I LOVE hate all of you so much right now.

arghh why do you do this to me??!?!

Erik didn’t know what mutants were while he was hunting Shaw down, or even that any others existed. He just knew that he could move metal. When he and Charles first meet, he’s obviously astounded that there’s someone else out there who can do fantastical things like he can. Killing Shaw and distrusting humans are two different things, and frankly, they’re not that related. He never hated Shaw because he thought Shaw was human; he hated Shaw because Shaw killed his mother and tortured him.

Once he finds out about mutants, and the fact that the CIA are trying to track them down, of course he’s going to see it in the same light as Jewish people being forced to identify themselves. The government is trying to identify an entire group of people without their consent, and Erik has no reason to trust governments after what he went through. He is very clear that he doesn’t trust humans, but he doesn’t start to target them until they target mutants for being mutants. Until the beach, where two powers who had been ready to go to war with each other decided that they could overcome their differences in order to destroy what was different and frightening.

And even then, as far as First Class goes, Erik is not targeting humans. He’s protecting mutants. That will probably lead to attacks in the sequels, because let’s face it, I don’t think the movies are going to go the anti-hero route with him, but as the end of First Class stands, the only time Erik targeted humans specifically, instead of whoever happened to be in his way, was when he turned the missiles on the people who fired them in the first place.

Erik acknowledges in the movie that there are good humans, when he says Charles wants to think they’re all like Moira. I’m pretty sure he’s aware that there are bad mutants too. That doesn’t mean he’ll stand by and let them be killed for being mutants. Killed for being assholes, sure, I don’t actually see him having a problem with that, but if someone’s role reason to hurt another person is because they’re a mutant, then Erik is going to have a problem with that.

Everyone else can go home because this is flawless. 

Addendum: Erik can’t afford to think about the good humans and take them into account because the humans whose actions matter — the ones who have already tried to kill mutants — have shown that they won’t take the good mutants into account. Even if you put Alex’s prison sentence into the picture, and Erik’s overt distrust of humans, the CIA had no reason to think Raven, Charles, Sean, and Hank were anything but willing partners with them. Hell, Hank had worked for them, developed at least one jet and a completely unique and unprecedented bit of technology for them. But they still fired on the beach. So Erik can’t afford to think about the humans like Moira, like his mother, because if he does, he won’t be able to protect mutants properly, and it has to come down to that for him. I can’t see him settling for anything less than doing everything he could.

Slightly hijacking this really excellent discussion of Erik:

As far as those on the beach could tell, their own side had just decided to fire on them, for no better reason than because they were doing scary inexplicable things.  If you pay close attention to what was happening on the CIA’s end of things, I think the truth is more complicated. Yes, they fired on their own people. But the target was Shaw; their own people were collateral damage. That’s why it matters that Moira couldn’t get through to her bosses with the Blackbird’s damaged communication system. She couldn’t tell them that Shaw was dead.

It’s still worth noting that when Moira’s boss argued (feebly) against the attack, it was for Moira’s sake. He never even mentioned the others.

Just because the film doesn’t dwell on it doesn’t me in my mind that Erik doesn’t take this reality into account.
I actually like the fact that the film went this way, that Erik killed another Mutant for the sake of a human. It makes things less clean cut. 

I honestly think that Shaw in Erik’s storyline was always sort of…unnecessary? It was like taking the worst thing that could happen to a person and adding a revenge storyline on top of it in order to bring the characters together. I sometimes wish people would focus less on Shaw, and focus on the atrocities that Erik went through in the Holocaust…
In the end, Erik was a character responding to the cruelness he suffered at the hands of the Nazi’s, humans. In the end, in the comics, the majority of evil who were attacking mutants were….humans. It’s the people in charge of governments who decide who is a “threat”, who look for scapegoats in innocent and “different” people. Those are the people that Erik targets.
Being a mutant doesn’t change that either.
It’s the one thing that I think the later movies did a crap job with. How many times does comic book Erik switch sides in order to take down an evil mutant, one that’s usually like Shaw (like Mr. Sinister who I think is where they got most of Shaw’s characterization from).
The lines blur frequently, and whether it’s a mutant or a human who thinks they can “rule” or “conquer” other mutants, both X-Men and Brotherhood are usually there to fight together.
…that make sense?

Am I the only one seeing a charming resemblance?

D’aww, now I understand the casting - that is charming! ^_^

[But I don’t think either of them look like Fassy. Just me??]

Not just you — I’ve never seen any resemblance to Fassy in either of them! But it is really cool that they resemble each other… the world is one step closer to making sense…
