    So how do you exactly put them into a figure, like what adhesive?

    I was thinking of 2 rare earth magnets to batman's back, then attach it to a weaker magnet on the wings ill make

    I tend to drill holes into the surface at the diameter / depth of the magnet, then glue it in.

    Any superglue should work well enough with such small surfaces. If you glue the magnet in tightly enough, they shouldn't be strong enough to tear each other off.
