Actor Michael Oliver, who played the villainous Magneto in the Marvel Comics comic books, has died at 91.

According to his agent, Joseph Pappalardo, Oliver was found in his Los Angeles home Friday morning.

He was surrounded by his family and friends.

He has been acting since he was 13.

Oliver is survived by his wife, Jeanette, and four children.

His daughter, Tasha, told People Magazine, “He was an amazing man.

He always had a smile on his face and he was always in the best mood.

His life was full of laughter and laughter was always with him.”
