    Also I gotta admit as far as the murder mystery if it wasn't suicide, I'm kinda stumped on who killed her my final guess is Pietro my man has not appeared since issue 2 he gotta be the culprit.

    AIPT:

    The plot itself has evolved into something very disappointing and convoluted, and that’s from someone who honestly loved issue #1. It was a great setup that featured tons of emotion and interesting development for Magneto on Krakoa. I wanted to like Trial of Magneto so badly, but it doesn’t live up to its premise and it feels like it doesn’t actually understand its cast of characters all that well. Some of its faults feel less like the fault of its writer and more of the hubris of Marvel itself, bloating this storyline to be a miniseries instead of X-Factor‘s final arc. And in the end, we get a long, drawn-out story that meanders around more than it should.

    The entire premise of Wanda getting a backup from pre-M-Day isn’t just bizarre, it takes away any emotional depth those scenes are meant to have. First of all, why is the last backup Charles had from pre-Disassembled? Wanda wasn’t retconned out of being a mutant until AXIS, so logically, that last backup should be well past House of M‘s events. The other thing that’s weird is when Billy and Tommy start yelling at her and saying things like “this is why everyone hates you” and “I spent my whole life defending you!”

    It’s just…bizarre. Not only were Billy and Tommy historically Wanda’s biggest champions (again, Children’s Crusade), but why are they yelling at this Wanda? A woman who had no memories of House of M or even their existence and was just bombarded with a “highlight reel” of the worst moments of “our” Wanda’s life and was told “yep, you did all this and went through all this so…accept that and carry on!” It lacks any emotional weight because this isn’t a Wanda who even knows how to respond to any of that — she never did it.

    Also, Billy never met Wanda until he was a teenager, so how exactly did he spend “his whole life” defending her? It’s just sloppy. The twins’ relationship with Wanda (and her relationship with them) is so fascinating and complex, and I read this and can’t help but think “wow this complicated relationship was handled so much better in Ewing’s New Avengers or again, Scarlet Witch (2016).

    The Kaijus attacking the island still feels like something that was inserted in just to bloat the series until it became a full-blown miniseries rather than anything that particularly needed to exist for any real plot. And again, that’s part of why when I read this book, I say its faults probably aren’t all on Leah Williams’ shoulders and have more to do with Marvel itself making this event a miniseries. It wasn’t built to be one, and now that the final product is out there, we can tell.

    The entire premise of Kaijus attacking the island is also exhausting because now we have another case of “Wanda accidentally did something that harmed mutantkind and they’re justifiably pissed about it” — and we’re still dealing with M-Day fallout in this book alone so this all feels extremely unnecessary. Wanda being mutantkind’s boogeyman isn’t just tiring, I have to wonder who even likes it.

    That’s the thing about Trial of Magneto as a series…I have to wonder who it’s for. Certainly not Scarlet Witch fans. Not Magneto fans (he’s literally barely in this). Not X-Men fans who are tired of rehashing M-Day and want something new and exciting.

    At one point Scott says “we’re kicking Kaiju ass” and it just feels so out of place and weird for him. It’s just another instance of this book feeling like it doesn’t understand its cast of characters — even its X-Men ones at times.
    I can’t help but agree. It may be too late to fix this.

    I agree with most of this except Billy's been a Wanda fan since he was a kid long before they met so I can buy his claim, Tommy turning on her just came outta nowhere.

    X-MEN: THE TRIAL OF MAGNETO #4

    The title X-Men: The Trial of Magneto increasingly feels like a misnomer. Thus far, there has been no trial, and this issue barely features Magneto at all. Its true purpose seems to be in restoring Scarlet Witch to an uncomplicated-ly heroic status quo, a bit of continuity triage on a character that's become folklorish boogeyman in mutant culture in recent years. As such, the plot is a meaningless jumble of notions that amounts to little more than willing away all of Wanda's baggage. With two different pencilers, the art is another distraction adding to the chaos, as Wanda shifts back and forth between being an Elizabeth Olsen lookalike and something more generic. Simply one of the messiest ventures to come out of the X-Men's Krakoan era. -- Jamie Lovett

    LW managed to make every character in this issue unlikeable.

    I really don't know where any of this is going. The only thing I'm looking forward is to Kyle's dinner going well, finally.

    Points for Gambit eye candy.

    I'm guessing the yelling mutant is Magma.

    I feel like the person who wrote that was sitting right next to me as i read it. Bizarre is the perfect word.

    I wonder how this would've been as an arc in X-Factor. Probably simpler and more in line with an investigation and trial.
