Marvel announces new ongoing Magneto series

The greatest X-Men villain (and sometime ally) of all time gets an ongoing series in 2014.

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.”

I’m going to stay cautiously optimistic about this one. I’m a big fan of the classic Magneto- the ruthless villain who would do anything to further the mutant cause, regardless of loss of life. Recent versions of the character have seen him soften a bit (well, maybe more than a bit), but the way that Cullen Bunn describes the way that he’s putting this new book together has me hopeful that that’s not really the Mags that we’ll be seeing in Magneto #1.

I also have no idea what to make of the baldness… tribute to Professor X? In any event, Magneto #1 launches in March of 2014  from Marvel Comics, so fans (including me) won’t have to wait all that long to find out just how big and hopefully bad Magneto will be in the new book.
