Magneto is the title of several series published by Marvel Comics starring the character Magneto.

Magneto was introduced in the first issue of 1963's The X-Men, initially as a villainous mutant supremacist and recurring adversary of the teenage superheroes.

Over time, his characterisation shifted into Well Intentioned Extremism and, eventually, his portrayal became an antihero with a tragic past.

This shift was accompanied by a switch from antagonist to protagonist, with a number of comics focusing on Magneto as their lead.
