Magneto goes solo in new comic series


(From Newsrama) The latest Marvel Comics one-word teaser has been revealed, with the new “Infamous” star of his own comic: Magneto.

In a new ongoing series by Cullen Bunn (Venom, Fearless Defenders), and Gabriel Hernandez Walta (Astonishing X-Men), the man known as Erik or Magnus, who has been hero and villain, will embark on his own journey, which Bunn describes as a mixture of detective and vigilante justice.

As revealed on USAToday, Bunn says the character’s ambiguity is appealing, both to writers and readers.

“We can sympathize with him even though he has been responsible for terrible crimes against humanity. He walks such a fine line. He’s standing up for his people — the mutants. He refuses to let them suffer as he has seen others suffer. But he’s taken steps to protect mutants that can only be seen as evil. His ideals are often ‘good’ while his methods are not.”

Part of the series will be Magneto continuing to retrain his powers after they were broken by the Phoenix Force in the 2012 crossover Avengers vs. X-Men.

While he’s been working alongside “heroes” of late, the average citizen of Earth is still very scared of Magneto.
