4.0 out of 5 stars Issue #1, 2 July 2015
The story running through issues #1-6 of Marvel Now’s new (2014) Magneto series is collected as Magneto Volume 1: Infamous. For a review of the full storylines running through the individual issues, follow that link.

Issue #1 is a scene-setting issue, as the SHIELD agents tracking Magneto question witnesses to his latest ‘execution’ of a scientist who has been experimenting on mutants. We see “Max” living the Frank Castle lifestyle due to his damages powers post –AvX, as he tracks down mutant-killers with a fashionable wall display of newspaper reports, pins and string. He follows up on one killer, currently in a Californian jail, in his best Terminator impression, only to find the prisoner is not quite human…

4.0 out of 5 stars Issue #2, 2 July 2015
The story running through issues #1-6 of Marvel Now’s new (2014) Magneto series is collected as Magneto Volume 1: Infamous. This is set after the AvX event – power loss - but it doesn’t specify exactly when. Magneto, answering to “Max” in this story, is on a Frank Castle mission to hunt down mutant-killers (as opposed to mutant killers). SHIELD is hunting for him, and he is suspicious of several leads that he thinks have been planted for him to follow. With his powers reduced, he really is operating at the Frank Castle level – which he comments on during the course of his investigations, having to hire cars rather than fly, and having to break in to secret bases rather than throwing them into space, as he did in the good old days.

The story running through issues #1-6 of Marvel Now’s new (2014) Magneto series is collected as Magneto Volume 1: Infamous. For a review of the full storylines running through the individual issues, follow that link.

Issue #6 opens with the SHIELD team questioning one of Magneto’s latest victims, Scalphunter, while Briar Raleigh’s confidential information gives Magneto the latest location of the Marauders, whom he pays visit to. But, Briar has also provided Magneto with the location of the Marauder’s factory, which will give him the chance to seize control of their programming…

4.0 out of 5 stars Issue #7, 2 July 2015
The stories running through issues #7-12 of Marvel Now’s new (2014) Magneto series are collected as Magneto Volume 2: Reversals. For a review of the full storylines running through the individual issues, follow that link.

Issue #7 finds “Max” a prisoner in an underground Hong Kong fight club, where kidnapped mutants are put into an arena to fight to the death. Magneto is continuing his hunt for mutant-killers, and Briar Raleigh’s confidential information (and private jet) has brought him here, where he has allowed himself to be captured in order to get to the heart of the operation. However, he wasn’t expecting to have to fight a Predator X…

Issue #8 sees the SHIELD team tracking Magneto going through the debris of the Hong Kong fight club after Magneto’s visit last issue. They find evidence that the club was involved in the Mutant Growth Hormone industry, and are able to recover information pinpointing the source of the drug, and therefore Magneto’s next target. Cut to Magneto arriving at his next target, where he attempts to peacefully arrange matters before the criminals inject themselves with the drug and get to work, just before the SHIELD team arrives to try to arrest everyone…

4.0 out of 5 stars Issue #9, 2 July 2015
The stories running through issues #7-12 of Marvel Now’s new (2014) Magneto series are collected as Magneto Volume 2: Reversals. For a review of the full storylines running through the individual issues, follow that link.

Issue #9 sees Magneto returning to Genosha, which someone has occupied and set up internment camps on for mutants, Inhumans, and anyone else that doesn’t match certain criteria. During his observation of the camp, his discoveries trigger a flashback to his childhood in Auschwitz, and memories of a particular SS officer. One of the prisoners he speaks to reveals that the ghost of Professor X still walks abroad. However, when Magneto confronts the Red Skull (for it is he who has set up the camps), he is overwhelmed by the Skull and his S-Men.

5.0 out of 5 stars Issue #2 - “Who’s Scared?”, 2 July 2015
The stories from the first six issues of the DC Comics’ new Scooby-Doo Team-UP comic are collected as Scooby-Doo Team-Up TP. For a review of the full storylines running through the individual issues, follow that link.

Issue #2 - “Who’s Scared?” - sees the gang in Gotham City for a meeting of the Mystery Analysts of, err, Gotham City, following the Batman’s invitation to visit given at the end of the previous issue. When the Scarecrow strikes (he’s on the cover, so it isn’t a spoiler) and the humans are incapacitated by his gas attack, it is up to Ace the Bat-Hound and his new sidekick Scooby the Dog Wonder (in a Robin costume!) to save the day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Issue #3 - “Two Mites Make it Wrong”, 2 July 2015
The stories from the first six issues of the DC Comics’ new Scooby-Doo Team-UP comic are collected as Scooby-Doo Team-Up TP. For a review of the full storylines running through the individual issues, follow that link.

Issue #3 - “Two Mites Make it Wrong” - once more guest stars Batman and Robin, as the gang continue their visit to Gotham City, where they are visited by Bat Mite, a magical imp who pops in every now and again to help (annoy) the Dynamic Duo. This time, his plan are interrupted by Scooby-Mite, a fan of Scooby-Doo…
