New Series Previews: First Look At The Debut Issues For MOON KNIGHT And MAGNETO


Each month brings a new addition to the Marvel NOW! Phase Two line, but March will see the debut of two titles that have a lot of people quite intrigued. Warren Ellis will be rejuvenating Moon Knight in a “weird crime” series that sees the psychotic hero going in a brand new direction. On the other side of the coin, Cullen Bunn will be showing us what happens when Magneto goes back to his strong arm tactics to save the mutant race. Both heroes aren’t above resorting to a bit of the ultra-violence, but it looks like Magneto takes ultra-violence to new levels in the preview for his first issue (via CBR).

Warren Ellis, artist Declan Shalvey, and colorist Jordie Bellaire will be taking Marc Spector in a new direction as he sets out to investigate some of New York’s weirdest and oddest crimes, crimes the mainstream superhero community tend to ignore. March 5th will see Moon Knight hot on the trailer of a mysterious slasher.

Cullen Bunn and artist Gabriel Hernandez Walta will be letting Magneto loose on the rest of the world as the Master of Magnetism takes some time away from Scott Summer‘s X-Men team. Trying to regain some of his lost power, Magneto will do whatever it takes to save mutants even if it means nipping some potential threats in the bud. As you can see below, things get pretty bloody. That series carries a “Mature Readers” label. What do you think about the new previews? Will you be picking these up March 5th?

Marc Spector is Moon Knight!…Or is he? It’s hard to tell these days, especially when New York’s wildest vigilante protects the street with two-fisted justice and three—that’s right, count ‘em—different personalities! But even with the mystical force of Khonshu fueling his crusade, how does the night’s greatest detective save a city that’s as twisted as he is? The road to victory is going to hurt. A lot. Marvel’s most mind-bending adventure begins NOW as Moon Knight sleuths his way to the rotten core of New York’s most bizarre mysteries!
Once the deadliest, most feared mutant mastermind on the planet, MAGNETO is no longer the man he once was. After falling in with Cyclops and the X-Men, Erik Lehnsherr became just one more pawn in another man’s war. But now, determined to fight the war for mutantkind’s survival on his own terms, Magneto sets out to regain what he’s lost…and show the world exactly why it should tremble at the sound of his name. Magneto will safeguard the future of the mutant race by hunting down each and every threat that would see his kind extinguished—and bloody his hands that they may never be a threat again.
