    Coming Up Comics - Timothy Merritt Jul 2, 2014

    This is a comic that's going to keep going to dark places and will continue to push buttons as well as boundaries, but its execution is tactful and powerful enough to be enthralling whether you're attracted or repelled. There are dozens of books each month that follow the exploits of good-guys, and many do it extremely well. But to do justice to an ongoing title following a villain is an extraordinary feat, and one this team has achieved. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Jul 2, 2014

    Bunn continues writing the story of Magneto weve always wanted to see and the artwork by Fernandez cant disappoint. This issue brings a lot of fight to the story and opens up for big possibilities come next issue. This series grows with each issue, giving you more and more reasons to keep reading and not miss a single one! Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Jul 2, 2014

    MAGNETO continues to be an adventure through brutality to those who deserve it. If you're looking for a book that can be described as "wrath," then this is for you. Cullen Bunn is doing an incredible job with this series and this character and I love that he's embracing particular moments from Magneto's past. The biggest problem with the book is that the color isn't up to par and there's a couple small problems with the art, but all-in-all, MAGNETO is one hell of a series. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 14, 2014

    Offering plenty of action of Magento maiming and killing various versions of the group he no longer considers true mutants, the comic plays on themes of the thought processes of an older and more ruthless version of the character that continues to emerge in the new title. Eventually Magneto gains control of the group's resurrection properties planning to bend them to his will as he has done so many mutants in the past. As to what he plans for the Marauders, and just what his control of them will do to the character, we'll just have to wait and see. Worth a look Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Jul 3, 2014

    Magneto #6 lacks the strength of motivation found in the series' first three issues and, as a result, feels comparatively aimless. The unflinching grit is still present, but this issue opts against the normal procedural approach and basks in some straight horror. Fans attracted to the genre and its examinations of resistance and powerlessness will find Bunn and Fernandez's partnership rewarding, but the strong character work and intellectualism that have defined the title seem to have taken the back burner this week.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jul 5, 2014

    Brian Michael Bendis is writing an exciting, multi-faceted Magneto over in Uncanny X-Men. Bunn is just writing a crazed super-villain. Read Full Review
