    Magneto #21 is not without problems. This arc stretched out waaay too long and there is a crucial lack of drama in many of the present day scenes. However, the quality of the writing itself is of the same vintage as the rest of this excellent series and, here, at the end, the collaboration between words and pictures has never been stronger. A gorgeous look back on one of comics' most well considered lives awaits those who pick up this final issue and those who love the fundamentally tragic or ironic elements of Magneto will adore it. The issue ends beautifully and so does the series. Read Full Review

    In the end, Magneto can't stop the final incursion. However, Magneto #21 details his struggle and puts it in just the right context. There's no ambiguity as to why Magneto is doing what he's doing. There's no final realization or change of heart either. To his dying breath, he's still Magneto and he still makes no apologies for anything he's done. He might not be the kind of guy anyone would hire to babysit their kids. However, Cullen Bunn's run on this series has proven that this is the kind of guy you want on your side. Read Full Review

    Magneto has of course died in in comics only to be brought back. You just can't keep a good villain down. No doubt Magneto will rise again but for now it looks like the character will be put to rest leaving a large hole in the X-Men side of the Marvel Universe I don't see any particular character stepping into. Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review
