Marvel interviews Greg Pak about “Magneto: Testament”

Marvel.com has posted an interview with writer Greg Pak about the “Magneto: Testament” miniseries, which follows young Magneto and his family as they struggle to survive against the Nazi menace from 1935 to 1945. Here’s an excerpt:

“The key decision was to make our hero and his family German Jews living in Nuremberg in 1935,” [Pak] says. “That made it possible for us to include things like the Nuremberg Laws, the Berlin Olympics, and Kristallnacht while staying completely within Max’s point of view. These events were important to depict because they help show the gradual but inexorable ways the Nazis’ persecution of the Jews developed. In pure story terms, that works for building compelling character arcs and drama. In historical and even moral terms, it’s critical because it makes it harder to dismiss the Nazis’ atrocities as some kind of unstoppable cataclysm—the Nazi state and the Final Solution arose through horrifically evil but utterly human means.”
