Magik Reading Guide

magik-reading-guide-04

Greetings hellspawn and welcome to the Magik comics reading guide!

Illyana Rasputina’s complicated comics history is filled with excellent stories and some of Marvel’s most complex character development over time. After being brought to the mainstream by Anya Taylor-Joy in New Mutants (2020), and again in Firaxis’ Midnight Suns video game, Illyana is now more popular than ever!

Sorcerer, warrior, demon, and hero – Magik is an incredible force to be reckoned with and has an iconic visual design. But what’s her story, and how does she connect to the rest of the Marvel universe? Read on to find out!

Illyana Rasputina has a wild origin story, even by comicbook standards. As a tiny kid, she was kidnapped from Russia and taken to the United States by force. But after being rescued by the X-Men and her brother Colossus, things went sideways again and she ended up trapped in Limbo, where she spent the next seven years being tortured by the evil demons who ruled there.

However, as Illyana aged in Limbo, her mutant abilities began to manifest. She trained in hand-to-hand combat, sword fighting, light magic, and dark magic under the mentorship of Limbo versions of Storm and Kitty Pryde. She was an apprentice to the demon lord Belasco and studied every book in his extensive magical library.

She knew her strength and held onto hope. Over time, the young Illyana grew powerful enough to overthrow her abusers and became the new ruler of Limbo. Illyana then managed to return to Earth as a hard-edged teenage sorcerer-warrior with a mysterious darkness of her own.

Emerging from Limbo as one of the most powerful characters in Marvel Comics, Magik is equipped with incredible magical abilities, time/space teleportation discs, and the Soulsword she created. As she uses her sorcery, magical Eldritch armor and demonic features manifest around her body.

Similarly, the Soulsword is the literal embodiment of her magical willpower. More than just a physical weapon, it can also cut through any type of supernatural entity and has soul powers of its own. With all of these abilities, along with impenetrable mental shields, Magik is a nearly unstoppable force. But for whose side? As her Darkchilde persona tempts her at every turn, Illyana’s powers come with a constant battle for self-identity, which her enemies are more than ready to exploit.

After training under Doctor Strange, Illyana has also become part of the supernatural side of Marvel. She is now a teacher at Strange Academy, a Great Captain of Krakoa, and a member of the Midnight Suns!

“Half my lifetime spent on Earth… and half in Hell, where I was consort to a devil.

I am Illyana Rasputin. Humanity’s savior… or the means of its eternal damnation.”

Before Magik (1975-1983)

These early stories set up The New Mutants, Illyana’s close bonds with Colossus and Kitty Pryde, her trip to Limbo, and the mystery of who she was when she returned.

She was mainly a background character at the time, so most of the comics here aren’t really necessary for Illyana’s story. The only issue you really need is Uncanny X-Men #160, but there are also a few noteworthy moments in other issues like #164, 171, and Special Edition #1.

  • Uncanny X-Men (1981) #145-148, 153-154, 158-160

Magik: New Mutants (1983-1997)

This is the foundation of Magik as we know her today. The Magik miniseries (also called Magik: Illyana & Storm) details exactly what happened to Illyana in Limbo and how she grew up, trained, and escaped. It leads into her major role in Chris Claremont’s New Mutants series (#14-54), which was continued by Louise Simonson (#55-73). Illyana’s story comes to a climax in “Inferno,” one of the most important stories in Magik’s entire comics history (New Mutants #71-73), and her tragic epilogue in “Legacy Virus” (Uncanny X-Men #299-303).

New Mutants is the main series you need for Magik, but the comics are closely intertwined with Claremont’s work on Uncanny X-Men because of Magik’s close relationships with Colossus and Kitty Pryde. I’ve marked the parallel storylines below so you can follow the two series side-by-side if you like.

It’s also worth noting that “Inferno” featured the return of S’ym and introduced a new demon into Magik’s life: the nasty N’astirh.

Magik and “Inferno” are the most important stories in this entire guide!

Magik: The Quest for Magik (2000s)

After the explosive events of “Inferno” and “Legacy Virus,” a character named Amanda Sefton took up the Magik mantle for a brief period. She even had her own trials with S’ym and Belasco! But Magik couldn’t be replaced, so after a decade away, Illyana finally began her return to comics in New X-Men and X-Infernus.

A loose sequel to Inferno, X-Infernus features Magik as she tries to escape Limbo and regain her soul. It leads right into New Mutants by Zeb Wells, which brings back the Bloodstone amulet in one of Illyana’s greatest comics storylines.

The end of Wells’ run sets up Kieron Gillen’s work on Uncanny X-Men and AvX: Consequences, both highly recommended series for Illyana. By this point, the Magik comics revival was in full force.

Magik: Uncanny X-Men (2013)

Spinning out of Avengers vs. X-Men, Brian Michael Bendis took the X-Men world by storm by writing All-New X-Men and Uncanny X-Men side by side. Like with the Claremont era, these two series are closely intertwined, but this time Uncanny is the more important title for Magik.

In Bendis’ run, Illyana took down Dormammu, explored the consequences of the Phoenix Force from AvX, and traveled to space for a series of crossovers with the Guardians of the Galaxy. Bendis also showcased two future versions of Illyana that became Earth’s Sorcerer Supreme in All-New X-Men #25 and the Uncanny & All-New Annuals.

Magik: Inhumans vs. X-Men (2016)

This was a dark time for the X-Men line, and these comics heavily deal with the Inhumans and Terrigen Mist fallout. Illyana had big roles in Jeff Lemire’s Extraordinary X-Men, Matthew Rosenberg’s Secret Warriors. Marc Guggenheim’s X-Men: Gold. Secret Warriors is the most important series here since it marks the beginning of Rosenberg’s multi-year storyline with Magik.

Illyana also guest-starred in the Doctor Strange: Last Days of Magic arc!

Magik: New Mutants (2019)

The end of the 2010s saw Matthew Rosenberg graduate from Secret Warriors to a full mutant takeover. Continuing his work with Illyana in both New Mutants: Dead Souls and Uncanny X-Men, Rosenberg helped reshape Magik and the New Mutants for the 2020s. Soon after, they entered the Krakoa era with the current New Mutants ongoing by Jonathan Hickman, Ed Brisson, and Vita Ayala, who explored Illyana’s past and future in New Mutants #25-28!

During this time, Magik also started teaching at Strange Academy, helped the Savage Avengers, and joined the Midnight Suns in both Ethan Sacks’ new miniseries and Firaxis’ critically-acclaimed video game.
