avengersundercoverIts not too often we get a look at the other side.  Sure DC recently had “Penguin Pain and Prejudice” which was (to me) one of the few bright spots in their New 52, and I know Magneto, perhaps a bit more of an anti-hero than straight out villain, gets his fair share at staring in his own comics.  Even so, comics that focus on villains tend to be few and far between.  More so are comics that focus on the (potential) fall into becoming one.  Something that Hopeless has been doing wonderfully through these first six issues.
