Writer Cullen Bunn and artist Gabriel Hernandez Walta, have created a very intriguing ‘pull’ at the beginning of the books in this series. They start the story with an eye witness testimony of Magneto’s destruction. The eyewitnesses have been in complete terror and distinctly attempt to portray Magneto as enjoying the terror and mayhem he wreaks. However the intensity of the testimony is broken up in this second installment with the addition of a little comic relief through the introduction of Magneto fan-boys, who come fully equipped with Magneto t-shirts (I sense a marketing ploy).
Magneto, the greatest villain ever created according to IGN, has finally received his own comic book series and it is a decent start. Writer Cullen Bunn and artist Gabriel Hernandez Walta are able to build a true aura of terror around Magneto in just the opening pages.
