Default Magneto: Not Being Crazy

Is there any story arcs that really show Magneto in a compassionate light. For compassionate read "not-a-human-hating-psycho". Not talking about alternate universes or anything in the last 5 years or so.

I've read x-men on and off and while I'm assured by Magneto fans that these one offs exist I'm struggling to find specifics. Thanks in advance.

I think he's made sympathetic in the movies by the Holocaust background. In the opening arc of the "X-Men" comic series by Claremont and Jim Lee I thought he was also quite sympathetic. At that point he was basically just wanting to be left alone and ends up being manipulated and then attacked despite trying to resist violence.

When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world -- "No, YOU move.”

don't know the exact issues, but you can go back and check out when he was the headmaster of the school and teaching the new mutants.
