    Those who delighted in Magneto's Argentinian adventure in X-Men: First Class would be over the moon for this book. It's exactly the vigilante justice against mutant kind delivered by the most ruthless anti-hero this side of the Punisher we need. While the renaissance of more light-hearted fare is a welcome change across Marvel's books, Magneto is NOT a character that should be included with them and thanks to Cullen Bunn, we are getting the Magneto evil mutant hating scum deserves.

    Coming Up Comics - Timothy Merritt Jul 16, 2014

    I'm both enthralled and a little scared of Magneto, and that mixture of emotions keeps me coming back each month for more. This is a book that takes risks, without every feeling like it's cheating you. I'm onboard for more. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jul 17, 2014

    Now seven issues in, Cullen Bunn continues to prove that Magneto doesn't need powers (or hair) to command respect. The writer has really settled into the character, his inner voice strong and assertive, no matter the circumstances. Read Full Review

    Magneto #7 doesn't necessarily reverse some of worrying trends within the title, but it is, without a doubt, one of the series' best issues. You put this issue down with a faster heart rate than when you picked it up. Read Full Review

    I love being surprised by comics. I have not collected much in the X-Men realm of comics in the last few years, save Wolverine and some various crossover events. As I said, I might never had picked this book up if it wasn't for a random cover on the first issue. But it has grown on me to the point that I list it in the first few books when asked the question: "What do you currently collect?" I have been telling my personal circles about this book for a few months, and now I am telling you " go down to your local comic store and pick up this issue. It's a great jumping on point and if you like it there are only six previous issues to get prior to this one. Read Full Review

    This was another great issue of Magneto and Bunn has really taken on Magneto's voice as his own. I just hope the build up from single stories to a clearly larger developing background plot happens sooner than later. Read Full Review

    MAGNETO is a book you can't put down. It's exciting and an adventure you know you shouldn't be seeing, but you can't look away. This issue tones down the violence and brutality a bit, but it's still an incredibly engaging read. The biggest problem, overall, is the jumpiness of the art. There's two different artists and two different colorists and they do not mesh well together at all. However, overall this is a fantastic series and anyone who has ever been a fan of Magento should be reading this. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 26, 2014

    Although the mutant-hunting creature is harder to deal with than at the peak of his powers, Magneto uses the Predator X's strengths against it before turning his fury on those in charge of the operation. Despite the fact that the reasons for Cyclops and Emma Frost‘s power loss was explained a month ago (a finale which involved our lead character), Magneto's power loss hasn't been fixed (or apparently even yet explained) in this issue. In the overall scope of things Magneto seems to be lagging behind the other X-books. Of course that may be why Marvel has put two issues of the series out in less than a month. Worth a look.

    Fanboys Inc - Cody Mudge Jul 18, 2014

    Magneto is a title that is walking a thin line through no fault of its own. The character simply doesn't have the history of being popular enough to sustain a series so every slip up is cause for concern. This issue features a fantastic core idea but an execution that is sorely lacking. The strong past issues make a case for why this isn't a concern over the quality of the book, but, its sales support should very much be something to keep an eye on. Bunns ability to capture Magnetos voice may very well sustain this series for the first time in the characters history. Read Full Review
