Magneto 004

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...

I miss Dad and Dan.

The thing about the new mutants is that they used to be humans, "the enemy", and no doubt a lot of them were Magneto's and his followers past victims who want justice or revenge.

A group of new mutants who didn't forget when they were humans and are not likely to give Magneto brotherly love which he expects from every mutant as if they're genetically programmed to behave a certain way and belief.

That Magneto may have to face the fact that he was really no different then the humans like Friends of Humanity.
