Magneto #3

Magneto's wandering and search for the source of the new Sentinels leads him to an underground facility where several low-budget versions of the anti-mutant weapons are being created. However, the true purpose of the sentinels and the facility itself turns out to be something not dissimilar to the path Magneto himself walked not that long ago.

Comparing Magneto's own attempts to create a safe haven for his people on Genosha, Magneto #3 showcases humans doing the same thing in an attempt to create a bubble safe from mutants and the outside world. Although the comic skirts the issue a bit, Magneto's response to the facility (and his own attempts on Genosha) seem to admit a failure of his own long-held beliefs in favor of those of his recently-deceased frenemy Charles Xavier about an integrated world shared by humans and mutants.

With Cyclops' team also searching for the truth behind the new Sentinels it will be interesting to see if the two comics converge and what Magneto's response from, and to, his old team might be. Worth a look.
