It was the 1978 Fantastic Four Cartoon “The Menace of Magneto” that Taught me to Pronounce Magneto Properly

I had a problem with this episode when I first saw it in a rerun in the 1980s. It just didn’t make much sense to me that Magneto was fighting the Fantastic Four. That aside, I owe this episode a debt of gratitude. Up until this cartoon, I had never heard the name Magneto pronounced properly. So I pronounced it “Magnet-O”. When I heard it pronounced “Magneet-O”, it blew my mind.
