    Comicosity - Nick Couture May 9, 2014

    Magneto #3 is another great issue to one of the most promising new series. It's moody and beautiful. It'sincredibly accessible for new readers to the character, while it also touches upon the legacy of the character for longtime fans. Give this series a chance because Cullen Bunn, GabrielWalta Hernandez, and Jordie Bellaire are just heating up. Read Full Review

    Coming Up Comics - David Melton May 7, 2014

    If you haven't been following this series, you've been doing yourself a disservice. With every issue, the story, as well as the title character, gets stronger. It has everything a reader could want: strong story telling, artwork that's fun to look at, and violence. Since it's only in issue three, go to your LCBS and pick up these issues. Follow along. Enjoy it as much as I do. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze May 8, 2014

    Magneto number one is certainly not a book for the light-hearted and I assure you that if you aren't, this is one of the best stories you will ever pick up to date centered around him. I mean if this is just Magneto cutting loose, I'd hate to see what happens when he faces a threat that truly calls for everything he has in his arsenal. Cullen Bunn knows what he's doing with Magneto and I have faith that he can find a way to keep the same tone while exploring this inner struggle he's dealing with at the same time. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Jonathan Schultz May 8, 2014

    If youre not reading this title and like what else is going on in the X-Men titles this is totally worth picking up. Or if you are simply a fan of this guy from the X-Men movies or cartoons its worth a try (I hear he is in a movie coming out soon that has TWO Magnetos for the price of one!) Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma May 11, 2014

    Magneto #3 is different from the normal mutant story in content and telling, but if you're an X-Men fan interested in something new, something quiet and mournful, it's a must read. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring May 7, 2014

    It's hard to pick a book from these new Marvel #1s to call "my favorite," but MAGNETO is up there. It has a look and feel that distinctly sets it apart from the rest of the Marvel universe with a compelling character involved in an intriguing detective story with a bit of brutal violence thrown into the mix. This is a series more people should jump on. It's haunting and mesmerizing. Go buy it, now. Read Full Review

    Fanboys Inc - Cody Mudge May 8, 2014

    With the final pages of Magneto #3, Bunn and Walta throw a nasty little curveball into what seemed like a straightforward story. This not only made the conflict and character more complex, but will enable the creative team to continue the interesting story that lead up to the climax of this issue. Big X-Men fans should not be going to sleep on this title, there's something about it"something vaguely"magnetic. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills May 10, 2014

    Magneto is a grim comic, and it's a gritty comic, but it's not the same kind of 'grim & gritty' that DC is churning out these days. These attitudes are being used to bolster and explore Magneto's character and his personal mindset these days. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 13, 2014

    With Cyclops‘ team also searching for the truth behind the new Sentinels it will be interesting to see if the two comics converge and what Magneto's response from, and to, his old team might be. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell May 7, 2014

    This remains an enjoyable series, but it feels like the full potential of the character and story have yet to be tapped. The slower plot development has been subtly hinting at something greater on the horizon but lets hope we can get there sooner rather than later. Read Full Review
