Resurrection of Magneto #2

Having found Magneto in the weird limbo for mutants, next challenge is to convince him to return to the world of the living. Consumed by his failures over the years, the Magneto she finds a a whiny little bitch who wastes most of the issue refusing her offer of help. For a comic created with the sole purpose of returning Magneto back to the land of the living, Resurrection of Magneto sure is taking its damn sweet time while failing to convince us of anything other than the obvious outcome.

The comic is bookended with Magneto's magic key. I'm not exactly sure what Storm's plan was once she found and convinced Magneto to return (considering there's no body to return to), but this sequences suggest the turn of the key can change the character's fate (although there appear to be unexpected consequences as well). While I'm interested to see what Magneto's role will be once resurrected, I'm no longer interested in the journey to get to that point.
