Franz Mesmer's Magnets were a pair of artifacts used by Nick Powell to fool Steve Jinks and Claudia Donovan into bringing him into the Warehouse. Once a magnet touches someone, it causes the victim(s) to see and hear illusions through the power of suggestion. The magnets can be used separately to "whammy" more than one person.

Real World ConnectionsEdit

Franz Anton Mesmer was a German physician who theorized that there was an energetic transference between all animate and inanimate objects. He called these transference "animal magnetism" which was later referred to as "mesmerism".

In early treatments he used magnets as a way of stimulating animal magnetism.
