Magneto #13 Review
After the events of Axis, we go to a look into a day in the life of his new assistant, Briar Raleigh. She gets out of a taxi and enters into what may as well have been a super-villain fan swap meet, with booths and stands set up to peddle goods around, like photos and videos of attacks. There she meets with one guy named Henry.
Like her, Henry bears a scar from when Magneto attacked Sacramento and he was a camera man filming it. He was part of a program named Mutants Among Us and, to keep a long story short, he loses his eye in the process. It’s then some of the other girls come up and are willing to tell her the story of how they got their scars if she tells them how she got her leg brace.
The story they tell if obviously fake, but she gives them a DVD that tells how she got her leg brace. She thinks its fine since they all are connected thinking Magneto hurt them some way, even if self-inflicted. It’s then that those annoying agents of SHIELD show up and ask her Magneto is.
Magneto, as it turns out, is wandering around the ruins of Genosha as the comic ends.
Okay, review time.
This comic was more filler than I would have liked. But it was a somewhat unique look into the lives of those who were touched by Magneto….
I’ll call it a 3 out of 5.
