Stan Lee said that Magneto was never truly evil.

Magneto, literally, started life over when Claremont wrote him; via Erik the Red. he became a new character. and given how much money he's made for the franchise, only a complete moron would prefer him as the stock supervillain he started as.

The re-creation of Magneto by Claremont was among his best work.
I'm a huge Grant Morrison fan, but the less said about the poorly thought through, utterly reactionary drivel that was 'Planet X,' the better.
I like Magneto better as an antagonist but with the current state of mutants in the MU, they need to stick together anyway.
Magneto draws more money as a villian. He hasn't really drawn the X-Men money including him as a member of the x-men.
He is also more interesting as a villian,and not as a tweener anti hero.
There's nothing morally objectionable about Magneto, he is a villain. Tons of criminals have very harsh backstories just like Magneto. Scott is slimy for associating with Magneto.
If anything, Magneto should work hard at avoiding a repeat of the concentration camps instead of acting like a nazi.
I do think he should have gone back to being a villain, or antagonist I guess might be a better word to use, since that will always be his character's greatest identifying trait but I feel they have missed their chance to do it. He is stuck as Scott's lackey for the foreseeable future. I mean if he was still an old geezer him stepping down and following Cyclops would make more sense, to me, but I always felt that being deaged would have renewed his motivation to see his vision carries out by his own hands instead of bowing down to Scott.
Also that Morrison quote was great. xD
