It’s long been said that what makes good movies are the bad guys. If that person is not challenging the main character of the film, then it’s dull as dishwater. If he or she is, then we often feel for the “good guy” of the film, want that person to win! I think comics have that same element to them. When the villain rises up and we worry that the hero or heroine will not be victorious, we’re anxious to turn the page and see what happens next. Our perception of villains has changed over the years. We used to
I’ve been reading comics now for decades, and one of the trends I thought would last forever was the popularity of comics featuring mutants. However, even I’m surprised at how quickly the mutants have faded away in the last couple of years. Here’s what I think happened!

Hot on the heals of Magneto #1, Marvel has released a sneak peek of Magneto #2 for you to check out.
One of Marvel’s oldest villains, Magneto has been back and forth across the ‘Hero/Villain’ line half a dozen times. Now a member of the very hero team he used to oppose, Magneto has struck out on his own to deal with unfinished business from his days as a “mutant terrorist.” Your Major Spoilers review of Magneto #1 awaits!
This week, Marvel Comics released issue #1 of an ongoing series featuring solo adventures of Magneto, one of the Marvel Universe’s oldest (and most dangerous) super-villains. It’s not the first time a “bad guy” has been the protagonist (The Joker had his own book briefly in the ’70s, while many ‘tweeners’ such as Deathstroke have had various levels of success as a headliner), but it’s certain an interesting choice.
