    Werneck and Messina deliver some great art throughout the issue. The characters look great, the emotions on their faces are well done and the action is visually thrilling. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Oct 21, 2021

    X-Men: The Trial Of Magneto #3 has a great ending, but the rest of the book feels like padding it. Its not a bad comic, but its not as good as previous issues. The art is also weaker than what came before, which doesnt help. This one is lucky the ending is so good. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Jan 1, 1970

    X-Men: The Trial of Magneto #3 deepens the mystery surrounding the Scarlet Witch's death, but strangely decides to sideline its title character. The series only has two issues left, so hopefully, this series will recenter its focus on Magneto and fully solve the mystery of Wanda Maximoff's murder. I also wouldn't say no to more Kaiju.

    Fans get a weird concoction of action and mystical nonsense that ultimately masks the lack of story wrapped in a cocoon of confusion. Read Full Review

    It's not necessarily a bad book, but it's definitely trying to accomplish more than a limited series should. Time will tell if it actually gets where it's going, but I'm not optimistic. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Lia Kolb Oct 20, 2021

    X-Men: The Trial of Magneto#3 boasts beautiful artwork thanks to Lukas Werneck, who makes sure every page seems bursting with life. Unfortunately, issue #3 is definitely the weakest of the story thus far because of how it meanders around, making one wonder how much more concise this plot would be if itwasjust anotherX-Factorarc instead of this blown-out miniseries. But, what Trial of Magneto#3 does best is set up its next issue with that shocking reveal. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Sasha Kaplan Oct 20, 2021

    Although the mystery surrounding Wanda is intriguing, it seems like Williams isn't sure of the direction she's taking the story. So much is already going on that isn't being addressed that I am left to wonder what the point is? Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Christopher Rondeau Oct 26, 2021

    The Trials of Magneto #3 had a genre shift in the middle of the series that felt jarring and inorganic. Read Full Review

    If you still want to read it maybe go back and read the first two entries in the series first. I would not go out of my way to read this one however. Read Full Review

    Some truly baffling story choices derail this comic to the point of it being unrecognizable. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Hannibal Tabu Oct 24, 2021

    More disturbing is that there are (checks notes) two more issues of this to get through. In that 60% of the story has been bad thus far, that's more like a threat than anything else. This train isn't stopping, and we're all just being dragged along the tracks. Read Full Review

    X-Men: Trial of Magneto #3 goes entirely off the rails and reads like a jumble of random events, abandoning any sense of cohesion. Read Full Review
