Here is another Marvel Comics Sneaky Preview thanks to our friends at Marvel Comics, we received some great first look pages from the upcoming Magneto #1, due out March 5, 2014. Written by Cullen Bunn with art by Gabriel Hernandez Walta, this version of the former villain turned hero turned mutant terrorist Erik Lehnsherr, will have a much darker and grittier storyline, more like a horror movie with a criminal noir feel to it than the colorful adventures of the X-Men that he is so recently a part of. You can check out my previous article for some more details about this new comic and check out the alternate covers and great interior art right here.
“I think Magneto is definitely an anti-hero,” says Bunn in an interview with Marvel.com. “He’s fighting for the right thing, but his methods are far too extreme. He’s not above breaking the law, stretching the limits of what is moral and putting evil to work for good.”
Magneto heads out on his own to battle against the injustices dealt to mutantkind. The world has changed a lot, so let’s see how Magneto deals with those changes and what sort of trouble he can stir up.
Please leave your comments and let us know if you are looking forward to this new series staring the Master of Magnetism.
It looks like a Punisher comic, but I am so all about this!
huh. looks like magneto is the new professor x apparently. i knew there was a reason i didn’t care about the x-men anymore.
It’s worth a shot. If only because Bunn has done some amazing work. I’m not as familiar with the artist, but this book has the potential to make Mags a more sympathetic character to the reader (not that living through the holocaust wasn’t sympathy enough…). I honestly hope that they use this book as something like “The Last Magneto Story”. It has been clearly established he was at the mercy of the Nazis in WWII; that makes him almost 100 (even with countless rebirths – and Joseph is long gone). Unless you put him on ice, a la Cap and Bucky/Winter Soldier, let’s puts Mags to pasture in a way that reflects and respects his many attempts to change.
