Once most feared mutant mastermind on the planet, Magneto is no longer the man he was. After allying with Cyclops and the X-Men, he became a pawn. Determined to fight for mutantkind's survival on his own terms, Magneto sets out to regain what he's lost. Magneto will safeguard the future of the mutant race by hunting down each and every threat that would see his kind extinguished and bloody his hands that they may never be a threat again. But as horrors from his past loom large and S.H.I.E.L.D. agents pursue him, will Magneto become the villain he once was?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Magneto, the archnemesis of the X-Men, has lately taken on more of a heroic, supportive role, as he partners with the X-Men and works towards peaceful coexistence with humans. That changes within two pages of reading this title, as the magnetic supervillain graphically stakes an antimutant supporter with several traffic signs. The horror and vengeance only grows from there, as Magneto seeks retribution from everyone, starting with a seclusive antimutant sect and ending with the Marauders, a mutant terrorist group that targets other mutants. But before blood is drawn, Bunn often seamlessly integrates streaky black-and-white flashbacks of Magneto's past, from the capture of his childhood friend by Nazis to the destruction of his mutant stronghold, Genosha, creating a twisted and sympathetic picture of this complex character. Helped along by Walta and Fernandez's splattered, grim artwork, Bunn's narrative places Magneto on a fine line between bloody, yet justified, antihero and terrorist bent on mutant domination. Magneto has often been considered one of the greatest supervillains of all time, and this title returns him to his former infamy.--Blenski, Peter Copyright 2014 Booklist"
