    Today, the whole world knows him as Magneto, the most radical champion of mutant rights that mankind has ever seen. But in 1935, he was just another schoolboy -- who happened to be Jewish in Nazi Germany. The definitive origin story of one of Marvel's greatest icons begins with a silver chain and a crush on a girl -- and quickly turns into a harrowing struggle for survival against the inexorable machinery of Hitler's Final Solution.

Max (Magneto) is a teenager in this book and so far, the book is much more about the world around him and less about how he became Magneto, which I am fine with. Pak did his...
