Years ago, Magneto and Professor X led Earth's mutants in a final push for independence against the Squadron Supreme of America. What followed was the Squadron's Mutant Massacre, a violent rebuttal that left Mutantkind forever wounded, and Xavier dead...or so Magneto thought. Years later, Magneto discovers Xavier clinging to life in the astral plane and gathers his allies for a first-of-its-kind rescue mission. Too bad the same mission puts the Mutant Force back on the Squadron's radar!.Failure means the last gasp of mutantkind, but success means the first breaths of somethin more

    But Why Tho? - Collier May 26, 2021

    Heroes Reborn: Magneto and the Mutant Force #1 filters the X-Men mythos through theHeroes Reborn universe, resulting in a tale that's equal parts action-packed and poignant. TheHeroes Reborn storyline has continued to provide new looks at Marvel's heroes, and I'm glad the X-Men got to be a part of that, even if it was for a little while. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson May 24, 2021

    Heroes Reborn: Magneto and the Mutant Force #1 trades inventively on familiar themes for an engaging spin on the mutant metaphor in this alternative universe. A combination of solid writing and good art sells the darker concept of this world convincingly. Well worth checking out. Read Full Review

    If you are someone who enjoys nods to X-Men history, you will have your hands full (and probably, quite a few tabs open on your browser) while reading this issue. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton May 26, 2021

    Because it's a one-shot to an event centered around the Squadron Supreme of America, Magneto and Mutant Force #1 is hamstrung by their less than charismatic appearance, but Orlando and Chang still spin gold out of the situation by including elements of classic X-Men stories and also poking and prodding at them. Plus it features cool psychic visuals and phonetic spelling of Rogue's Southern accents. Even if you're not following Heroes Reborn, this comic is worth checking out for fans of stories like "Days of Future Past" (The film more so than the comic, honestly.), Age of Apocalypse, and "Here Comes Tomorrow" with a team dynamic that is classic X-Men-meets-Exiles.

    Major Spoilers - Christopher Rondeau May 27, 2021

    In this alternate timeline, we get to see Magneto take on the role of protector rather then aggressor. This change of role leads to an engaging new twist on the classic hero team. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes May 24, 2021

    I am at a loss with this book. Is it for X-fans or is the book aimed at the fans of this event? How much attention are you going to give a book that has no impact on anything much at all, especially as you have the Hellfire Gala just around the corner. Read Full Review

    Magneto & The Mutant Force #1 is an often contradictory introduction to an alternate timeline that adds nothing to what has come before and it will apparently even the minor aspirations found here will remain unfinished. Read Full Review
