  1. i haven’t read X-men Legacy since Second coming but i’m getting all the AVX tie ins and i really like Gage

  2. The last issue was stellar. though i’m still pissed the Gambit/Rogue panel (“You’re a prince Remy Lebeau.” ” Prince of thieves. Let’s steal one more from fate hm?”) didn’t get nominated for panel of the week.
    Hope avx doesn’t mess up a great book.

  3. Did not want to like this book but it has been outstanding!!! Mimic added to this team has been a great addition!

  4. What is this book about? What was it about when it was originally created?

    • Second question first: It depends on what you mean by “created”. According to the numbering, this series started back in 1991 — the classic Chris Claremont/Jim Lee Blue Team/Gold Team era. In 2001, this book was retitled as “New X-Men” somewhere around issue 114 for Grant Morrison’s classic run. Then it was back to just adjectiveless “X-Men” for a few years when writer Mike Carey took over. He started with some good arcs with Chris Bachalo, and then after House of M the book was again retitled as “X-Men: Legacy”. Legacy began with a few arcs focusing on a depowered Xavier, and shifted to focusing on Rogue. After 7 or so years, Carey left the book.

      So (getting to the first question) since the start of 2012, X-Men Legacy (written by Gage, and mostly drawn by David Baldeon) has been kind of the companion book to Wolverine and The X-Men. Like WATXM, Legacy is based at the Jean Grey School in Westchester, and generally features the adult mutants who teach there but aren’t as heavily featured in WATXM (like Rogue, Gambit, Frenzy, Rachel, Cannonball and Husk).

      I’ve been super-impressed with this book so far. It’s not on the same level as WATXM, but the style of the writing and art make it feel like it’s cut from the same cloth. It’s got great classic X-Men action and character beats, and is well worth any X-fan’s $2.99.

    • Ken knows whats up.
      Couldn’t have said it better myself.

    • So what was happening with Uncanny while this was X-Men and New X-Men?

    • Phew…that’s a lot to cover here.

      This is a really good site for X-related information. Have at it!

    • Thanks. You are a helpful human being.

  5. Only getting this for She-Hulk

    • I was going to drop this, not because it is bad, but because of financial constraints, but I will keep on because of she-hulk. She doesnt get enough page time since Betty Ross became a hulk. Which is lame by the way. Anyway, this is a good book and should be read with our without Jen Walters.

    • GIVE SHE- HULK HER OWN BOOK! And not the lame Red one

  6. Dammit. Now I have to buy this every month.

    Awesome X-Men action, sticking it to those fascist flatscans.

  7. Rogue fired up at the end and taking on them all was so cool and with her proper witts was the topping. To bad it was so short lived with the suprise of Iron Man?? We shall see we shall see how this works out next issue! Good issue and I was only passing through due to the crossover.


  8. X-Men Legacy #266 was not bad, it actually was good in the character development area; however, it just sucks that big time X-Men like Rogue and Gambit are being left out of the big fight. Those scenes where evil Rogue was kicking Avenger butt was pretty cool, though.

    Comments and feedback are always welcome!

  9. finally like frenzy, just by calling out the b list of avengers. any mention of an xmen vs avengers reference with the russians and dr druid?
