***Footage from "Rockshow" DVD***
"Magneto and Titanium Man" was the B-side song to Wings' single, "Venus and Mars/Rock Show" in 1975. It was Paul McCartney's attempt to branch out musically, and is the only song where McCartney uses comic book characters as subjects in the song. The first two characters mentioned in the song are Magneto and Titanium Man, hence the title. However, there are two more characters not mentioned in the title. The first is the Crimson Dynamo and an unknown female character. The song was included in the setlist for the band's 1975/1976 world tours. While it was performed, comic art of the characters created by Jack Kirby were projected onto the large screen behind the band. McCartney, a Marvel Comics fan and comic book fan in general contacted Marvel Comics to hire Kirby for the backdrop art. On the L.A. leg of the Venus and Mars tour, McCartney gave Kirby front row seats and back stage passes (his daughter was a big Wings and Beatles fan), and Kirby backstage gave Paul and Linda an original comic drawing he did of them. The song can be heard coming from a radio, creating an argument during a scene in the 1976 Mike Leigh play Nuts in May.
