Ed's Notes: You what I always find interesting? When DC and Marvel have essentially the same character - like Doctor Polaris and Magneto - and yet one (Polaris) is a second-string villain / over-glorified bank-robber while the other (Magneto) regularly threatens ALL OF HUMANITY and is one of the top... three(?) most powerful (and prominent) super-villains on Earth.  Just odd how differently two such similar characters get treated in their respective universes.

Second edition sources omit the bonus about shutting down Green Lantern Rings. (Which is pretty frickin' cool. lol)
