X-Men: Magneto Testament (2009)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger

X-Men: Magneto Testament (2009) This rather intense graphic novel tells the story of Super Villain Magneto's childhood. In 1935 Max Eisenhardt is a nine-year-old boy who lives with his family in Germany. But as the Nazi's increase in power his family faces more danger until they have to run for their lives. What's cool about this book is that it puts Max's story into historical context, so we are seeing what's happening to millions of other Jews. And this book doesn't shy away from the gruesome stuff, such as the slaughtering of kids and the crematoria of Auschwitz-Birkenau. Max does exhibit some of his magnetic powers, which at first gets him in trouble when he wins a javelin throwing competition at school. He's trying to impress a gypsy girl he has a crush on, Magda, who is watching him. However, the Nazi principal says that he cheated and expels him. A few years later he encounters Magda at one of the concentration camps and manages to save her life, though there is a terrible price. Of course, he would later marry her and she's have children Quicksilver and The Scarlet Witch. And through all the hardships Max goes through we understand how he turned out the way he did, viewing the mutant persecution as the same sort of persecution against the Jews. Highly recommended.
