I loved this.

As much as i disliked the front cover ripping off the Star Wars episode 1 posters of Anakin with his shadow i have to admit, it works here with Max and Magneto in the puddle. Its pretty cool and the red works well, so kudos to Marko on that.

I watched X-Men the movie last night and to think that Magneto was this boy is extraordinary.

Having to watch his father abused by a Nazi soldier for "shaming a German woman"
