First Look: MAGNETO #2

Magneto's solo adventure continues here.

MAGNETO #2

This April, the war for mutantkind’s survival continues in MAGNETO #2–from the blockbuster creative team of Cullen Bunn and Gabriel Hernandez Walta! Hunting down threats to mutants before they strike, Magneto isn’t afraid to get his hands bloody to safeguard his species. But no one escapes their past–especially one with as many skeletons as Magneto. Long-dormant horrors have resurfaced, and they pose a serious danger to the future of mutantkind. What horrible secrets are being brought to bear? Plus, S.H.I.E.L.D. gets wind of Magneto’s activities and they’re going to do something about it! And it all happens this April in MAGNETO #2!

Excited for the second issue! First one didn't blow me away, but I had fairly low expectations. Pleasantly surprised.

I liked the 1st issue but it didn't wow me. Ill give it a few more though.

You don't need a boring Doctor or anything to bring you back down, do you?

Why is Magneto bald? To honor Xavier?

We did have that New Avengers/Transformers crossover not to long ago, so it could happen.

Issue one was pretty decent. Nothing special but since it's Magneto I'll be holding on.

Why is Magneto bald? To honor Xavier?

Yessum, he shaved his head for that exact reason. Which is ironic now considering he's about to go back to full blown Mutant Terrorist (or so it's been hinted).

I liked the first issue, excited for this.

Anyone else see that pic on the front page and think this was about Lex Luthor before reading the title?

Jews didn't wear armbands in the Holocaust, they had patches that they would stitch to their clothing. Goes to show how much research Cullen Bunn does.

Why is he bald? He looks a lot like Xavier, especially on the cover
