Magneto has become of one of comicdom's most complex villains doe to his ever changing status in the Marvel Universe, as well as the skillful onscreen portrayals by Michael Fassbender and Ian McKellan. Much is made of how his tragic past and sympathetic motivations give him shades of grey, but frankly I always enjoy him best as a straight up villain. Sure, in his mind he may think what he is doing is right, but at the end of the day he is no better then Dr, Doom and the Joker. The Legion depicted here is from my favorite era of that team. Paul Levitz, one of the architects of that LSH phase, is writing their current adventures. I'll have to check some of those out and see if they have any of the old magic.
