One of the better things about this year’s major Marvel event – the Avengers/X-Men: Axis storyline – has been the central role played by Magneto in the whole, vast business.
It has afforded the Master of Magnetism better characterization and focus than he’d had in a long while and has served to make him more interesting than I’ve found him for years.

I have to admit to having been a little sceptical about Avengers/X-Men: Axis when it was first being talked about. I hadn’t even intended to read it; but then, goodness, what a fun ride it was proving to be.
A guilt-ridden Tony Stark, a tortured Magneto getting back to his most interesting, a cool-as-hell Doctor Doom, a gigantic Red Skull, and much more besides. And then… and then it all went so very, very wrong with Avengers/X-Men: Axis #4 (more on that shortly).
But of course I should’ve known the good times wouldn’t last.

With the highly-anticipated Days of Future Past movie currently hitting cinema screens, it’ll be time again for X-Men comics devotees to react, positively or negatively, to the obligatory round of new characters featured; in this instance that means Quicksilver, Sunspot, Blink, Warpath and Bishop.
Judging from trailer footage, none of them – apart from maybe Blink – look particularly good, but maybe they’ll come across a lot better in their proper context, as there’s only so much we can glean from a trailer. Blink is probably the one I’m most curious to see and is also the oddest choice for inclusion in the film, but Quicksilver might be the most important in terms of his significance in the X-Men and broader Marvel universe.
