This review begins with a question. Is calm mannered Magneto a compelling character? The answer is no. This book has been fantastic and I have enjoyed it every month since issue #1. The one criticism I have is that Magneto is useless, he gets lost in the background. Scott’s babysitter is not Erik’s finest role. Bendis tried to make him interesting by giving him that double double agent story, but that fell flat because being a double double agent cancels itself out, and turns out is not interesting (comic book math 🙂 ).
