Greetings True Believers!

Here are some scans from Captain America #367. It's set during the Acts of Vengeance cross-over.

A cabal of super-villains have been working together but did Skull really think that Magneto had forgotten the past?

Skull is thinking over his alliance when he receives a visitor.

Mags has a question for Herr Skull.

Skull does bring up a interesting point.

Skull doesn't even believe in the Reich anymore, he's just pissing on Mags. He will regret that.

Mags responds to the Controller.

Ha. Magneto's line is priceless.

Skull tries to escape via rail while delaying Magneto with Sleepers. Robots aren't the best card to play against the Master of Magnetism and he quickly loses his lead.

Magneto has plans for Herr Skull.

Magneto is not to be trifled with. But I think he was also talking to himself in that last page.

Still one of the best comics I've ever read here.

I still think that it's kind of weird that there was a Communist Red Skull for a while in the Fifties or so.

I know that for a long time the majority of Marvel's supervillains were in with the Soviets to one degree or another (especially Iron Man and the Hulk), but I'd have thought that it wouldn't make that much sense considering how vermently Nazi Germany and the USSR hated each other once Hitler invaded.

It'd be like if there was a Neo-Nazi supervillain called the Crimson Dynamo.

I still like the fact that Controller shows up out of nowhere, and Magneto just bitchslaps him without a second thought.

I mean, he wasn't working for Red Skull, he was just there for Magneto for some reason. Why? How did he know where Magneto was? How did he break into the Red Skulls fortress? We never know, cause Magneto swats him like a gnat.

See, THIS is the Magneto I like!

Not Grant Morrison's version. THIS one.

It's a small thing, but I like how they didn't try to plant responsibility for real world crimes on Red Skull. These days, I think writers would actually have Skull responsible for crimes like the Final Solution, simply because it makes him more evil

I don't think the Red Skull needs help being "More evil".

Besides, it would be tasteless to have a fictional villain responsible for real world crimes.

Very tasteless, but that's par for the course lately.

Remember reading this when it came out. First time I ever liked Mags.

Red Skull does have a point, Magneto has in the past (granted he's come a long way) tried to nuke humans to make a point.

Well it wasn't really nuking humans but really blackmailing the world to disarm all their nuclear capabilities with a machine that controlled the world's environments.

The Soviets thought to hell with that sending that sub after Magneto to kill him. I'm more surprised the Skull didn't bring up the fact that Magnus destroyed a Soviet village in response to that attack. But I guess that one had little to no fatality loss like the sub. Which haunted Mags all the way from the 80s to 90s.

I was refering to the first time, Uncanny #1, the whole attack a amry base steal the nukes for the Mwahaha's. Stan Lee was never subtle.

The sub incident is still two X-Men appearances in the future.

That's still a few steps away from trying to kill all humans for no other reason than because they're human.

I like Magneto's entrance- now that's the way to arrive!
Esp with such a package on display!

I love this.

If I remeember correctly, Doom was ALSO on his way to bitchslap the Skull, but came too late.

It is a fine piece, but leaving Skull to "think of the horrors" he has perpetrated doesn't really work on someone like Johann. Magneto will only find him merrily reminiscing about each kill, filled with pride.

Okay, sure, the confinement and starvation part itself do work, but it won't change him, or make him repent one bit.

Thank you for this - it is always interesting to see different takes on this character, when is this set?

I'll wave my ' BQ fancies Magneto' banner proudly, but he's bordering on ugly bugger here, am I to assume this is set before he leads New Mutants?

Yeah, this is just after he first met the New Uncanny X-Men (Storm, Wolvie, Nightcrawler, et al) and whipped their asses. It's two appearances before the rehab really got underway, although you can see it starting.

Actually, this was set shortly after Mags was finished leading the New Mutants, not before.
