A blast from the past, set when Magneto was headmaster of Xavier's School! Magneto may once have been the X-Men's fiercest foe - but when Professor X leaves the planet for life-saving treatment, the Master of Magnetism inherits a new title: teacher! The New Mutants suddenly find themselves under his tutelage, but can these young X-Men-in-training learn to take orders from a reforming super villain who's tried to kill them and their predecessors?! There are two sides to every story, and J.M. DeMatteis and Todd Nauck weave a tale that will show how Magneto was right…from a certain point of view. In fact, the mutant known as Irae has taken Magneto's lessons to heart in a way that will upend even his best strategies! Prepare to meet the Sisterhood of Evil Mutants! Collecting MAGNETO (2023) #1-4.
A native New Yorker, writer J.M. DeMatteis has been one of comics’ most respected writers for nearly three decades. Ranging from the introspective psychological drama of Moonshadow to the offbeat comedy of Justice League to the autobiographical Brooklyn Dreams, he’s written from nearly every perspective in graphic storytelling. His long list of credits includes Captain America, Defenders, Justice League International, the groundbreaking Spider-Man storyline “Kraven’s Last Hunt," Spectre and more. His recent work includes the acclaimed children's novel Imaginalis and the popular comics-prose hybrid Abadazad books.

After fine-tuning his craft at Image, artist Todd Nauck made a name for himself on DC’s Young Justice in collaboration with writer Peter David. At Marvel, he reunited with David for Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man and, in a later engagement with the web-head, drew the Obama/Spidey team-up in Amazing Spider-Man #583 – giving Nauck the honor of illustrating one of the highest-selling Spidey stories of all time.
