A major villain dies in Uncanny X-Men #16, but they are not who we thought they were

You won’t believe which ’90s supervillain has been hiding in plain sight.

Major spoilers ahead. You’ve been warned.

Things are heating up in Uncanny X-Men thanks to Cyclops and Wolverine taking on the Mutant Liberation Front, fighting Hope, and now even Captain America is involved. In the latest issue out today, lives are literally being lost.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Midway through Uncanny X-Men #16, Magneto, Toad, Juggernaut, and other villains are on the attack and calling themselves the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. Cyclops shows up to stop them and in the midst of battle, Karma realizes Magneto isn’t who he says he is, or at least not 100%.

Wait, did he just…

Off with his head! It appears the once beloved Magneto clone Joseph is no longer with us.

This is only part of the story. I highly recommend you read the whole issue out today!
