Oh no, is this the last issue? This is the only thing I'm reading out from Dynamite, the idea to make Magnus a woman who not only identifies with robots, but ends up fighting for their freedom, is one of the most complex and interesting approaches to the character that I've seen thus far. I hope this is not the last that we've seen from this Magnus, Dynamite only strikes gold occasionally and it i more

Magnus #5

By: Kyle Higgins, Jorge Fornes
Released: Oct 18, 2017

Magnus tracked down the rogue artificial intelligence Frederick, but his plan to propel the conflict between man and AI into an open war is still a threat - and it's time for her to pick a side! Will Magnus be able to choose between her humanity and her moral code? She'll have to...because it's the only way she can prevent the loss of more lives!

The Valiant version identified with the robots. As for gender swapping the character, I;d rather they'd focused more on what made the original Magnus so compelling than worry what was between his legs.

Gizmo - Dec 11, 2017

I haven't read the Valiant version of Magnus, Robot Fighter, but what made this version different from Dynamite's previous run is that the humans are the oppressors as opposed to a grand AI dictator oppressing the humans. It reflects on how true AI could easily become another marginalized demographic in human society. And no, at no point does the story focus on what's in between Magnus's legs. Why would you even fixate on that?

If you came looking for Magnus robot fighter, disappointment is all you will find. This may as well have been an original character, for all the ties it has to the gold key original. The main problem with these Dynamite reboots is that you can feel the disdain for the original concept. They can't help themselves, they have to tamper with the series DNA. Its why the last Dynamite reboot of thes more

Do humans dream of owning electric sheep? Artificial intelligences, rather than becoming our overlords, have settled into an uneasy symbiosis with humanity - they work for us as our colleagues and servants, earning vacation-time they spend in a boundless digital universe running on human-maintained server farms.

Okay, full disclosure. I wanted RYV 2.0 to be good. In retrospect I should have known it wouldn't be. They replaced a veteran writer with a diversity hire, traded Stegmen for Nick Roche, and employed that laziest of gimmicks a time jump. I can't recommend this.
