History: (X-Babies I#3) - L'il Magneto was created by Mojoverse usurper Veech out of protoplasmic material slashed from his Adorable X-Babies by the real X-Babies' Wolverine. Prepared to send L'il Magneto and his other new Adorable X-Babies against the true X-Babies, Veech commented on how adorable his new Adorable X-Babies were.

(X-Babies I#4) - L'il Magneto and the army of new Adorable X-Babies were sent against the true X-Babies and their allies and he was one of the many Adorable X-Babies who swarmed Planet Terry. Ultimately, the X-Babies' Rogue absorbed the powers of Veech's ally, Spiral, and used them to open a teleportational portal into which she banished Veech and the Adorable X-Babies.

(Exiles III#2 (fb) - BTS) - L'il Magneto arrived on the cartoon-like Earth-32518, where he ultimately became somewhat of a friendly bully to the other Adorable X-Babies.

(Exiles III#2) - L'il Magneto stole the Adorable X-Babies' pies, planning to keep them all for himself. Wolvie of the Adorable X-Babies used his superhuman sense of smell to track the missing pies, meeting the reality-hopping Exiles along the way, and he soon found L'il Magneto in the woods. Claiming he would never return the pies, L'il Magneto claimed the pies all for himself but when he magnetically moved the Exiles' Iron Lad, Blink jumped L'il Magneto and ordered him to put the pies down. L'il Magneto immediately began crying and agreed to set the pies down before shaking hands with and apologizing to Wolvie, admitting that while he thought it might be fun to take the pies, he didn't know it would make everyone mad. As Wolvie and the Exiles prepared to return to Xavier's Playtime Fun School for Gifted Youngsters, L'il Magneto noticed a reality disturbance behind him. Investigating, L'il Magneto was erased from existence as the reality-devouring Time-Eater began destroying Earth-32518.

(Exiles III#5 (fb) - BTS) - After the Exiles created a temporal paradox that restored the realities devoured by the Time-Eater, L'il Magneto was returned to life alongside Earth-32518.

(Exiles III#5) - L'il Magneto was recruited from Earth-32518 by the Exiles' Blink to join Blink's alternate reality counterparts and allies in battling the Time-Eater. Swarming the Time-Eater, L'il Magneto and his allies succeeded in dissipating the Time-Eater, at which point he was returned to Earth-32518.

Comments: Created by Gregg Schigiel and Jacob Chabot.

L'il Magneto's hair color was impossible to determine, as he was never seen without his helmet.
