As we all know..........
One of the greatest villains of Marvel Comics, X-Men's Magneto, Takes on in a new ongoing series as the guardian angel for the mutant race...tracking down and eliminating those that threaten the existence of mutant kind. Magneto has straddled the line between hero and villain over and over again since his introduction in the 60's. As a character...Magneto also has a higher profile than many of his enemies in the X-Men.
Since his first appearance 50 years ago in X-Men No. 1, Magneto's been their chief bad guy, the mutant team's leader and ally, and everything in between in his quest to exhort the superiority of the Mutant race over homo sapiens. As we all know, he's been a villain and a hero, but he's never been truly on his own. This new ongoing series would be VERY interesting, and as we know ...he will be surrounding himself with his new incarnation of the Acolytes, a group of mutants who saw Magneto as a messiah for the mutant population.
Yes...that's right...a new form of the Acolytes, his cultish followers. S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Acolytes will both appear regularly. As much as people hate the Acolytes...I will say it again...there will be new Acolytes coming soon in this ongoing series. In those various balancing acts that Magneto been over the years as good and evil, hero and villain, savior and terrorist, we'll finally get to discover who...or what he really is (or was). I truly can't wait to see and read this story. Seriously....how will the first issue play out? Will he be hero, or villain, or somewhere in-between? Honestly...I think Antihero is a good role for him. Well...that's something that we need to find out in March.
