Note: step-father of Polaris
The mutant super-heroine Polaris (Lorna Dane) is the biological father of Magneto. But this fact was not always certain.
When Lorna Dane was first introduced, she was told by Magneto follower Mesmero and a robotic copy of Magneto (who everybody at the time thought was the real Magneto) that Polaris was Magneto's daughter. But by the end of this story arc, within days of being told she was Magneto's daughter, Iceman told Lorna that he did some research and found out that her actual parents died in a plane crash shortly after she was born.
Over the next many years, the parentage of Polaris was touched upon again and again, with Magneto sometimes established as her father, and sometimes that notion being dismissed as a lie. It was not until Uncanny X-Men issues #s 430 and 431, written by Chuck Austen and published in 2003, that Magneto was firmly and finally established as the biological father of Polaris.
