The Hellfire Gala ended last month with one of the most shocking moments possible — The Scarlet Witch lay dead on Krakoa, and the prime suspect appears to be Magneto! Now, a new trailer for the event miniseries X-Men: The Trial of Magneto drops some hints at the mystery to come.
When readers last saw Wanda Maximoff alive in SWORD #6, she was sharing a tender moment with Magneto as he attempted to reconcile with the woman he had thought to be his daughter for years. In X-Factor #10, her son and his boyfriend found her dead. So what happened?
That’s the question that Leah Williams and Lucas Werneck seek to answer in August’s X-Men: The Trial of Magneto. If the new trailer is any indication, it’s going to be a twisty mystery and a major event across the entire Marvel Universe.
So did Magneto do it? And if he didn’t, who framed him for the crime? And most importantly, why?
All those questions will be answered next month when the series debuts! Be sure to pick up X-Men: The Trial of Magneto when it hits stands on August 18th!
