Nikolai Kryaglyachenko was walking home from school one day when he stopped to lean against a lamppost. That’s probably the worst start to an origin story ever. Anyway, little Nick leans agains the pole and BAM! gets blasted by a bolt of electrical current.
From that day on, little Nikolai was no longer a regular boy. He was a boy with coins stuck to his ass.
“When I came round, I felt groggy, but managed to get home and told my mum what had happened. When I woke up the next day and got out of bed, I found some coins that had been lying on the mattress had stuck to my body. Then when I was having breakfast and dropped my spoon, it stuck to my chest,” Nikolai revealed.
Nikolai Kryaglyachenko is now Magneto. Actually, that’s trademarked. Nikolai Kryaglyachenko is Spoonchest. So what else can Spoonchest do?
“I can do things I couldn’t do before, but I don’t have a lot of control over it. Even when I do not want to do it, I still attract things. Once I even attracted a glass — it just moved towards me,” he said.
Until Spoonchest can harness his powers, this is a pretty shitty super ability. He’s got random object flying at him all the time and with zero ability to fight them off or heal. He might be the first hero destroyed by his own super power.
