Master of Magnet

You defeated Magneto with all 6 X-Men characters!  
There are some problems with this achievement for some people, but a solution has been found! Play your first playthrough as Cyclops, because for some reason he doesn't save like the rest of the characters. Once you complete a full campaign with Cyclops, you can simply replay Stage 8: Fight Magneto with the rest of the characters and get the achievement.

I'm having the same problem. My friend got it when we played together but I didn't.

I tried doing the last level with all 6 and it didn't work. So most likely you have to start with them

I was able to just do the magneto fight and get the achievement, but my friend has tried without success and has gone through all six characters twice... still no achievement. I think that there may be some achievement glitches in this game.

Been at this for a couple hours with my roommate and I've gotten it but he has not. We were maybe thinking that you need to be the one to deal the final blow..?

@6 That didn't work for me, but starting it from the beginning of the game with each character did. If you're having problems, start from stage 1 and go to the end with each character. It doesn't really take that long and you might pick up a few other achievements on the way.

i beat the whole game with wolverine only, beat like the last half with colossus, and loaded the magneto fight with the remaining characters and i got the achievement.

You have to actually land the killing blow. If you're in a group, only the person that actually kills Magneto gets credit!

This achievement is still glitched apparently for many people. Just remember, the best way to get this achievement is to play through the entire game with each character. Make sure the Japanese ROM is on, because it mostly saves after you finish the game. The US one just keeps going after you finish, and some people have reported that it doesn't save after defeating Magneto.

I only had to replay with Cyclops, because he was the only character that didn't save for me. This is not a character problem, per say, but more of a game-saving problem.

@14 That is the exact way I got it as well. Beat the game with one character, then beat magneto in his level with 4 others (not cyclops) and then use cyclops in the japanese version and beat the whole game with cyclops. it works and you'll have 200/200!

So it's best to play on Japanese if I'm going for this achievement?

I beat the game with storm. Then beat magneto by starting level 8 with the other five characters. The achievement did not unlock, so I exited to the dashboard, then went back into the game and played from start to finish with cyclops on an online game that I began/hosted. Upon defeating magneto, the achievement unlocked.

it seems to be that you have to play the whole game with Cyclops for this to unlock. I played the whole game with Wolverine, then just level 8 start for the rest of the characters. I then played through with cyclops and it unlocked

Step 1.
Complete the (Japanese rom) game from start to finish with any character except for Cyclops.

Step 2.
Replay Chapter 8 (Japanese rom) with all characters except for Cyclops and the character you did step 1 with.

Step 3. Complete the (Japanese rom) game from start to finish with Cyclops.

That's how I got it.

it seems you must play w/ cyclops the whole game through and it should pop i dont konw why but it worked for me and a friend.

It seems like the solution has been partially mentioned -- beat it completely with Cyclops.
You need to do Cyclops last, and it must be a FULL RUN. For whatever reason he does not save properly, and for whatever reason he can't just do level 8... dunno why but it's how it is.

This achievement is frustrating me to no end. I have tried every method stated on here as well as every one I could find on other sites. I have beaten the game over 30 times on multiple ROM's and difficulties and it will not pop. If anyone has any other tips, I would greatly appreciate it, I'm so tired of being stuck at 170/200!

Comment #25 by JaCkaL X

I also forgot to mention that I am ranked on the leaderboards on every character for both ROM's if that is any help in explaining why I can't get this.

Played all characters on level 8 only, Japanese rom, normal, 6 player mode, then played through entire game with Cyclops on the same settings and got the achievement.

@cptlaurion I just wanted to say thank you! I did exactly what you said and received the achievement.

Comment #29 by daveydoom
Saturday, December 31, 2011 @ 01:06:58 PM

@cptlaurion is correct. I got tired of sitting at 170/200. I came here as a last resort because I was trying to get it by myself. Beat magneto with all 6 characters on USA and Japanese ROM multiple times and no achievement popped. Just went back and beat it on Normal Japanese ROM with Cyclops from the beginning and I got the full 200 now. Thanks.

Didn't have the Cyclops glitch on mine. Instead, it unlocked after I did it with Dazzler, Nightcrawler, Wolverine and Storm.

Just wanted to highlight that this needs to be done in 6 player mode. Don't be a dipstick like me and do the whole thing on 4 player cabinet. If youre wondering why you aren't seeing any "saving content" messages. This would prolly be why.

stopped playing this over a year ago but, the other day i said what the hell i'll play thus for awhile not thinking anything about it i started on usa rom on normal with cyclops and poof it unlocked! all this time and now it unlocks. WTF

No rhyme or reason behind this one. Here is what I did.

All of these on Japanese ROM:

Beat whole game with Colossus (normal difficulty, 4 player screen)

Beat level 8 (normal diff, 4 player screen) with Wolverine, Storm, Nightcrawler and Dazzler.

Beat whole game with Cyclops (expert difficulty, 4 player screen)

Still no achievement. I then went back and beat level 8 with Cyclops on normal difficulty. Still no achievement.

Then I changed things to 6 player screen and beat level 8 with Wolverine, Storm, Nightcrawler and THEN beat it with Dazzler and the achievement popped after her.

So it seems all screwed up. It seems that the player 4 and player 6 settings do effect things, but I never did beat level 8 with Cyclops or Colossus in 6 player screen mode.

My best advice
