Is magneto evil?

This is a very difficult question, since, even though I never watched X-men, nor ever read the comics (although I want to do both), I know that Magneto is the bad guy. but do bad guys get their own comics?

I have only one magneto comic, number 1800, I think, it shows him as someone who cares for mutants and just wants humans to respect mutants. Though Magneto is a villain against the X-Men group, he has since in the comics joined them a lot of times, even becoming a hero himself, though he is not a supervillain due to his morals – he is an Anti-Hero because he protects mutants from humans at any cost.
