Magneto Prepares for Ongoing Series in 2014

Cullen Bunn and Gabriel Hernandez Walta are ready to carve a new path for the Master of Magnetism.

Last week the news broke over Magneto getting a new series. We didn't get a chance to post about it but did (briefly) discuss it during the podcast. The new series will be written by Cullen Bunn with art by Gabriel Hernandez Walta. Have you heard about the direction the series is going?

Erik Lehnsherr is judge, jury, and executioner this March when he makes his All-New Marvel NOW! debut in MAGNETO #1 – a haunting new ongoing series from the blockbuster creative team of Cullen Bunn (Wolverine, Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe) and Gabriel Hernandez Walta (Astonishing X-Men)!

He’s been called many things – hero, villain, teacher, revolutionary, redeemer, destroyer. Now he walks a different path. One of the hunter – seeking out and eliminating threats to the Mutant race with extreme prejudice. And the Master of Magnetism is more than ready to get his hands dirty in the service of his people.

“He’s not above breaking the law, stretching the limits of what is moral and putting evil to work for good,” says Bunn in an interview with Marvel.com. “How readers interpret his actions, whether they see him as a hero, anti-hero, or villain, is one of the things I’m really excited about with this book.”

Witness the beginning of a new Master of Magnetism as he begins his one man mission for all-mutantkind when MAGNETO #1 hit this March!

I believe this was announced almost a week ago.

it was but the cover and description are new, or at least I haven't seen it yet

@deadpool25mm: They should really make up an excuse that his mutation slows aging or something, it'd seem odd to watch a 90 year old fighting a revolution.

x-force magneto edition im down

Posted by The Stegman

He's one of the few villains who can hold an on going

Posted by Marionettegeist

This could be interesting.

Posted by comicbookfan93

So does this mean he's leaving Scott's X-Men?

Posted by Jbreen

The book seems very interesting to me. Not really read any of Bunn's work before though.

I love Magneto but I don't think I'm the audience for this.

Posted by deadpool25mm

@maccyd: yeah I thought thats why he looks so young because he's mutant. I always saw Magneto as a villian until I watched X-men first class, you get to understand what he went through.

Posted by cameron83

Seems interesting. Glad he's getting his own series,but this was announced a week ago.

Edited by Rabbitearsblog

Sounds interesting, but I wonder if it means that he will no longer be working with the X-men (which I would be okay with that).

Posted by Iron_Turtle

@deadpool25mm: @maccyd:

Distinguishing Features: Appears to be a man in his physical prime, and roughly half his much greater chronological age, as a result of being rejuvanated by the High Evolutionary

woohoo!

YES!!!!

Edited by MadeinBangladesh

This was announced a while back.

I'm gonna pick up #1 Seems interesting.

Posted by Maddpanda531

@kriminal: No, cover and whatnot was released a week back, too. The Vine is just really late to the show sometimes...

The King is back:

will try the first issue but have a feeling its going to suck. its going to be too dark and gloomy all serious. that's why magneto works well with the x-men, he has the team to balance off his too serious nature. plus does this mean he is leaving the x-men to become a one man x-force? sigh there is no need for that

Posted by Smurfboy

Nice. Not sure if I can afford to buy this but we'll see. Currently, I am following Wolverine (5th series) and am about to follow Wolverine and the X-Men (all-new in March '14). Not sure if I'm willing to cough another $3.99 title with this Magneto.

Edited by Mrfuzzynutz

nope, not picking this up, He need to get back to being a villain again. It's sad to see him taking orders from Summers. ESPECIALLY after he went and messed up his powers

Edited by ScarletWitchFever

I'll definitely give this a chance.

Edited by kid Apollo

who needs 2 x-forces when youve got Magneto around?

but seriously im gona be the first to pick this book up

Posted by SavageDragon

Im not sure about Walta's art for this book plus 3.99 (really Marvel?) but because I love Magneto I will sure give it a shot.

Back in the silver age magneto was turned into a baby. he was restored and turned into a man of his 30s. so now i assume he is in his 50s

When did Magneto go bald? Did he do that co'z he misses Xavier?

...That's pretty much just the old Magneto.

The art looks nice.

He looks like Xavier.

I will probably pick this up.
