Magneto #6

Magneto #6 continues to series' darker turn for the character from would-be hero to vigilante and, with the events of this issue, possibly super-villain once again. After hunting mutants and seeking out the source of the new Sentinels, based on the intelligence provided to him by his new associate, Magneto turns his attention on the mutant-hunting Marauders created by Mister Sinister to use their own mutant abilities to kill their own kind and be reborn into new cloned bodies if any met their end.

Offering plenty of action of Magento maiming and killing various versions of the group he no longer considers true mutants, the comic plays on themes of the thought processes of an older and more ruthless version of the character that continues to emerge in the new title. Eventually Magneto gains control of the group's resurrection properties planning to bend them to his will as he has done so many mutants in the past. As to what he plans for the Marauders, and just what his control of them will do to the character, we'll just have to wait and see. Worth a look
