    This was just more of the same. Nothing really inspired or inspiring. And a typically boring Marvel poser cover. Even the artstyle was appropriately effective but depressing. More narration rationalizing his mission of murders. For me it didn't help that it was chronologically confusing; Magneto coldly slaughters a small generic crew of Purifiers apparently in retaliation of some "REMEMBERED" past immenent atrocity to a busload of mutant kids -back when he exacted even more ruthless retailiation- all revolving around some guy named Dawson Harris. Right? The only modicum of interest is finding out what Easter Egg names are on Magneto's memorial memory stick. So tempted to pass on the one-note series at this point...

It wasn't that chronologically confusing. He had just come from destroying the Purifier "farm" and was adding names to his Mutant Memorial Wall.

But it was more of the same. This issue felt like a filler, but it could be a prologue. I trust there's something this issue will lead to.
