Magneto is the Master of Magnetism, But He Sucks at Table Manners

X-Men #4 is in stores now, and Bleeding Cool Rumourmonger-in-Chief Rich Johnston dedicated one of his weekly comics spoiler articles to talking all about Professor Xavier and his hippie dream of humans and mutants co-existing peacefully, blah blah blah blah blah. But Rich missed the bigger story of the book, which was the fact that either mutants have entirely different ideas than humans of what constitutes good table manners, or Magneto simply doesn't have any at all.

Just look at this scene from X-Men #4, where Magneto explains to a table of diplomats how mutants intend to conquer the world without ever firing a single shot.

Magneto is the Master of Magnetism, But He Sucks at Table Manners

Horrifying, isn't it?! Magneto was talking while chewing the entire time! We don't know what's going on in Krakoa, but if this new mutant society is one where people chew with their mouths open and talk with their mouths full, maybe it's time to bring in the Sentinels!

X-Men #4 is in stores now.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!

About News with Benefits

Why let facts get in the way of a good story? News with Benefits is just like the actual news, but more interesting because it's embellished. Yes, it may feature made-up quotes, wrong assertions, and completely baseless speculation, but in a way, isn't that more honest than the shameless buttkissing and corporate shillery you often find in the "real" news? Don't answer that.

News with Benefits was pioneered at toilet-themed comic book news and opinion website, which is sadly now defunct, but its stench lives on thanks to the support of your clicks and outraged comments.
