Magneto is, in my opinion, kind of an ambiguos character. Is he a fighter for the mutant cause because he really believes in it, or is it just a way of externalizing a need of vengeance he carries from his youth in Auschwitz? Thinking about that I came up with the idea of a mini-series where Magneto deals with his own ghosts.
Faces are one of the most interesting things to draw, so when I wanted to make a fake cover for this fake Magneto mini-series, I decided to go for a simple portrait. Just the expression of an old, tormented man.
