Unlimited Highlights: The House of Magnus

As the search for The Scarlet Witch continues in Avengers: The Childrens Crusade, we look at Magneto and his family

By Ben Morse

Every week we'll pick a handful of awesome comics from the thousands available through Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited. From creator spotlights to editor's picks and more, this'll be your spot to find something new and cool.

The hunt for The Scarlet Witch continues in AVENGERS: THE CHILDRENS CRUSADE #2, currently on-sale, as Magneto joins his grandchildren, Wiccan and Speed, as they and the other Young Avengers pursue their rogue mother. To get some background on perhaps Marvel's most dysfunctional family, checkout these classic stories featuring Magneto and his mutant brood!


It's a major turning point in the saga of Magneto! As the Master of Magnetism holds the world hostage with a nuclear submarine and his archenemies, the X-Men, close in, the would-be-savior of the mutant race begins to get reflective in regards to his dark past. While fending off Cyclops and company, Magneto also recalls his horrific days surviving the Holocaust and the character-forging tragedies he found himself enduring. Will the conflicted master villain realize a new path towards salvation or will he finally succeed in destroying the X-Men once and for all, no matter the cost?


The Marvel Universe awakens and everything has changed. Mutants have become the dominant species on the planet and rule benevolently under Magneto and his House of M. Spider-Man and Carol "Captain Marvel" Danvers have become the most-beloved super heroes in the world. Luke Cage leads the Human Resistance Movement. And Wolverine runs S.H.I.E.L.D.-but he suspects this should not be. Logan has begun to remember the truth about how reality should be and he'll need all the help he can get to figure out what happened and what role The Scarlet Witch played in making her father's dreams seemingly come true...

The fallout from House of M finds Quicksilver in the worst of ways, de-powered and blamed by his former friends and allies for playing dangerous games with reality, not to mention decimating the mutant population. First up to take a shot at the scion of Magneto: Spider-Man, who holds Pietro responsible for his once again losing his shot at a happy life with dead lover Gwen Stacy and throwing his emotional state into turmoil. If he gets past the Web-Slinger's rage, what lengths will Quicksilver go to in order to restore his former standing?

The Scarlet Witch has been missing since House of M, but now Hawkeye's determined to track down his longtime friend and get either answers for her unbalanced recent actions or vengeance for his death and resurrection at her hands. The Avenging Archer's travels lead him to Transia, where he discovers an amnesiac Wanda seemingly unaware of her past crimes. Will Clint Barton be able to keep his aim true and gain the catharsis he sought or will he once again be seduced by The Scarlet Witch? The award-winning creative team of Brian Bendis and Alex Maleev has the answers!

Though his Young Avengers teammates may be skeptical, Wiccan has it in his head the The Scarlet Witch for sure has to be his mother, and his apparent twin brother Speed figures he's at least got to humor the guy. However, the more the duo investigate, the more it's looking like Billy may be onto something here. Hoping for more answers, the heroic teens track down an old foe of mom's, Master Pandemonium, but as it turns out, that may be the biggest mistake they could have made...
