Marvel Avengers Alliance: Unlocking Magneto for Spec Ops 6

To unlock Magneto during Spec Ops for of Marvel Avengers Alliance you need to collect 8 comic book covers which you can get from unlocking Lockboxes.

How to get Lockboxes - Lockboxes can get bought at 1 gold each, but they can also be awarded from Spec Ops 6 deploys and from Spec Ops 6 Boss lottos
Here's the Crappy part - While you can guarantee that you'll receive a comic book cover by trading in 10 lockboxes (or try your luck by opening one box at a time for a 7% chance of gaining a comic book cover), it is possible to get the same covers that you've already collected which makes the task a bit more daunting. If you get the same cover, you gain 10000 Silver instead.

You can also gain lock boxes by completing the Master of Magnetism Sidequests Tasks. I've listed them below. You'll notice that the skip costs will run you more than actually buying an equal amount of boxes to the reward (i.e. don't pay gold to skip). The sidequests don't appear until after you complete Task 7 of the Spec Ops 6 Tasks.

These are optional tasks to help you obtain more lockboxes. Completing all of them will not unlock Magneto; only collecting all 8 comic book covers will.
