It's the middle of August, and that means the solicits for November are beginning to pop up.
Newsarama has solicits for two of their most popular villains.
Doom and Magneto





"DOOMED TO HELL!"

VICTOR VON DOOM #1 (of 4)
Written by NICK SPENCER
Art & Cover by BECKY CLOONAN
NOVEMBER 2011



Oh shit.

From that article:

"We spoke with the team for the exclusive announcement of Magneto's first feature series since 2000's Magneto: Dark Seduction. The solicitation text says Magneto is caught on-camera killing humans. While the creative team couldn't talk much about what this means for his membership with the X-Men, they were able to talk about who he is as a character and tease a few other characters that might be showing up, as well as, for Young, switching sides in a way of his own."

I may wait for trades, but the teams behind these stories are quite capable.

Ditto; there are much better uses of Young's time (well, as an artist, anyway), and I'm kind of tired of Bad Magneto--his face-heel turn in Morrison's New X-Men run marked my end of interest in the title.

His face-heel turn in 1991 and the killing of the twins marked the end of my interest in Marvel twenty years earlier. I only came back because of House of M and Young Avengers.

Except Skottie Young is WRITING it, and has nothing to do with the art.

you read anything he's written before? I do love his art, but I've no idea what he's worth at storytelling.

I'm praying he's not another Byrne.

... hopefully not! Some artists are good writers! It could happen!

One mediocre Juggernaut story and one Anole story with good art, a decent concept, and bad execution. He comes off as the kind of guy who bends characters to fit the story instead writing a story that suits the characters. That does NOT fill me with hope that we'll get anything better than a Morrison-esque take on Magneto.
