(Newser) – A real-life Magneto in Brazil? Metal appears to stick to Paulo David Amorim, reports the AP, citing local media. The 11-year-old’s apparently magnetic qualities have led classmates to nickname him “magnet boy.” Though a doctor says he’s never seen such a case before, he adds that the boy’s health is not at risk.
