Before the Brotherhood, before his greatest battles with the X-Men, there was a man named Erik Magnus, gathering mutants to join his cause. Does the young Magneto have what it takes to build an army? And what does all of this have to do with The Absorbing Man?

    If it is ever decided to pursue the tale of the gathering of Brotherhood, with a Magneto that is full of his self-righteousness, determined in his mission, and brutal in his cause, then please bring Chaykin back and turn him loose, no holds barred. That's a Magneto story I'd love to read, and one I'm certain Chaykin would love to tell. Read Full Review

    I'm a big fan of the character created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. In fact, when written well, he's my favorite X-Men character. Sadly, in terms of talent, Chaykin is a far cry from either of Magneto's creators. This Magneto is roguish, boorish, and less than a pale shadow of the man who would come to torment the X-Men for years to come. Best forgotten, leave this one on the shelf where it belongs.
