AUSTIN (KXAN) — This guy may not be controlling metal with his mind, but being magnetic is close enough for him.

Titled “DIY X-MEN MAGNETO,” the guy in this video walks upside down with magnetic shoes.

In case you’re wondering, “Magneto” is the primary villain of the “X-Men” comics, and he controls electromagnetism of the entire planet.

Colinfurze posted the video on YouTube, saying magnetic shoes seem to be something only NASA has done before him – pointing out that not even Ian McKellen used real ones in the “X-Men” films.

Glad the magnets worked because I sure was hoping he wouldn’t fall. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
