While much of Marvel NOW! is relaunching characters and super hero teams we already are familiar with, there a few titles that are clear risks in their attempt to spotlight lesser known characters. X-Men: Legacy is one such book, focusing on the character of Legion, an X-character that isn’t so commonly known. The son of Charles Xavier and a powerful mutant in his own right, Legion is one of those secondary characters that I’ve always thought was primed with potential. I’m excited to see Marvel embracing that potential and taking a risk with the character and it will be interesting to see what Simon Spurrier and Tan Eng Huat can do with the title.
Today, we got our hands on a sneak peek at the first issue, which you can see below and it definitely looks intriguing. X-Men: Legacy will be one book I’ll be keeping an eye this November.
