    Once the deadliest, most feared mutant mastermind on the planet, MAGNETO is no longer the man he once was. After falling in with Cyclops and the X-Men, Erik Lehnsherr became just one more pawn in another man’s war. But now, determined to fight the war for mutantkind’s survival on his own terms, Magneto sets out to regain what he’s lost…and show the world exactly why it should tremble at the sound of his name. 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.

    Seriously is Mags back to being a 2D villan who hates all humans? I hope there is a new twist to it.

    it's not about hating humans. it's about sending a message to active mutant-haters.



    on another note...did they shave him bald just to make him look like Cassandra Nova?

    But isn't that what X-Force is about. It feels stale he switches from baddie to goodie crossing anti hero. I kind of liked him recently advising Cyclops, but I hop this comic deals with the loss of the angel on his shoulder Xavier. What can he do in a world where his best friend s dead???

    For the Love of God Marvel stop putting Shield Agents in suits blue and white the whole way. Damn you Coulson!!!!!

    i agree. why have X-Force when you have Magneto and his new Acolytes essentially doing the exact same thing?

    MAGNETO #8
    Cullen Bunn (W) • JAVIER FERNANDEZ (A)
    Cover by Declan Shalvey
    • MAGNETO was once arguably the most powerful mutant on the planet.
    • But after his latest tenure with the X-Men, his powers have been reduced to a whisper of what they once were.
    • Maddened by the fact that he struggles to safeguard mutantkind in uncertain times yet his own mutant gift wavers, to what lengths will Magneto go to become the Master of Magnetism once more?

    COuld it be that his gift is wavering because his powers are artificial? He isn't a mutant anymore. or is it?

    Somehow the whole Phoenix thing in AvX affected his powers like it did the others who were actually possessed by it. Don't ask me how, it's Bendis' doing and I don't think he's ever fully explained it just beyond, "it just did." :o

    This is currently my favorite X-book! It's a great read. For those out of the comics loop, you could pick this up and enjoy it without having to catch up on a bunch of stuff. It's a brutal book though, in the sense that Magneto does not hold back in his brutalization of the human villains. So those that are averse to violence should stay away.
