Powers: Joseph has the mutant ability to control magnetism. Through this ability, Joseph has shown he is capable of: flying (by riding the electromagnetic spectrum), firing energy blasts, stopping iron from reaching the brain of a victim (to make him unconsicious), firing an EM pulse, creating magnetic force fields, taking apart/reassembling weapons and other objects with magnetic materials and controlling magnetic objects in various ways. Joseph is not yet as powerful as his mysterious twin, Magneto.
Well, the alien landscape they were in was merely a holographic illusion created by the bounty hunter, Landscape. He, along with Grovel and Spat, were hired by someone to captured Remy LeBeau. Shortly after capturing the bounty hunters, the X-Men found out that they were in Magneto's old base and Nanny (a robot that Magneto created to "watch" the X-Men a long time ago) was there to babysit again. With their mutant powers nullified, the X-Men were captured easily. Magneto was placed in a room where he saw everything that was happening in world, including Operation: Zero Tolerance and Moira MacTaggart's demand for it to end. It was then Joseph felt an incredible sense of revenge setting in. So, therefore, if he has the feeling of getting revenge on MacTaggart, then he should be Magneto. After escaping their cells (it's never explained how Joseph escapes), they find themselves against Nanny and her goons again, but Trish Tilby destroys Nanny, restoring the X-Men's powers. Then, Erik the Red appears and is the guy that hired the bounty hunters. He starts a trial of sorts and begins out Joseph, who is beaten and battered. So, it shouldn't be Magneto...right? NOPE!! After the citadel started collapsing, Erik the Red revealed that he was Magneto!
Maggott and Sabra have both confirmed that Joseph is not Magneto. In an attempt to discover his identity, Joseph has accompanied Sabra in a search for the real Magneto. Since then, we have not seen Joseph at all. However, the upcoming "War of Magneto" will explain Joseph's origin and his connection to Magneto.
