If we are discussing Fassbender as seen purely from First Class, there aren't many performances to match it. Keaton as Vulture or Brolin as Thanos are decent enough choices, though.

After that, Magneto fizzles out so I would rather not pretend he's some immensely nuanced character as a veiled excuse to laugh at the MCU.

@vishop_: Noted, will add that Tom Huddleston as Loki, and Anthony Hopkins as Odin(Wish he did more).

The only one that is close imo would be Tom Hiddleston as Loki.

Lee Pace gets a nod though for nailing Ronan.

Fassbender is slumming it and has phoned it in a couple times. The role has become a paycheck. He's great, but his Magneto performances are just ok outside of First Class.

The only ones that come close are RDJ in Iron Man 1, Keaton's Vulture and Josh Brolin in IW.

RDJ and not just in IM1. He was the same level in every IM movie, actually IM3 was probably his best performance conveying the deep anxiety that he had developed. He nailed it in Homecoming. And it should go without saying that he put full effort into Civil War, Infinity War, as well as Endgame,

Chris Hemsworth as Thor was arguably better too.

Fassbender's Magneto is probably in the Top 5-Top 10 for best cast actors in CBM's while being in Top 3-5 regarding acting.

The ones that stand out more than him for me are Ledger's Joker and probably Brolin's Thanos.

Lol After seeing some of the arguments I am pretty sure the fanboynism in CV for RDJ is ridiculous but not really surprising at all lol

When it comes to his First Class performance, RDJ in Civil War / EG and Hemsworth in Infinity War are comparable IMO.

Overall, quite a few characters / performances are better than him with RDJ, Brolin and (though probably I'm alone on this) Spader coming on top.

I feel like people always forget about Hiddleston. Either that or his performance as Loki is the most underappreciated CBM performance yet. It's definitely the most impressive one in the MCU for me.

Brolin’s Thanos, Evans’s Cap, Hiddleston’s Loki and RDJ’s Tony are easily in the same caliber come on now.

You asked for MCU performances that rival Fassbender's Magneto. People have mentioned RDJ and you're throwing a temper tantrum?

I don’t know about any “better” performances, but I do consider RDJ, Hiddleston, Vincent d’Onofrio and Brolin to be amongst his equals.

RDJ's performance is escalated because the role resembles a LOT of his own character or personality and that is a fact. Fassbender is underrated which wasn't surprising but he is still better than RDJ.

Wouldn't say any performance from the MCU is better personally but RDJ comes closest.

RDJ in the first Iron Man and Josh Brolin as Thanos are the candidates, pretty close, but they weren't enough.

None. MCU has some good actors, but Fassbender's Magneto (at least in First Class) is an absolute top tier performance.

RDJ in CW was top notch.

Everybody in Thor 1 also did a fanatic job to be honest as well.

None for me. But I should re-watch some of the MCU films before saying for sure.

If this included the Marvel TV shows, I'd put Iain De Caestecker above him, and maybe Charlie Cox.

Here are some highlights, i'd say the only performances that can rival his are rdj's & tom hiddleston.
