As a relatively new comic reader, I cannot say that I have any experience or knowledge of Legion… sorry, he hates that name, David and his X-antics. However, I had heard good things about the new X-Men Legacy and its wonderful lack of Rogue x Magneto fanfic, so decided to put it on my pull list.

Four issues later, it is one of my favorite books. Spurrier is taking what is essentially a product of the 90’s extreme fad, and turning him into something truly special in the Marvel universe.

In this issue we’re watching David wrestle with his true feelings towards his father and the whole idea of the X-Men while simultaneously fighting personal demons, psychic persona prisoners, and Wolverine’s team of Snikt-Bubs. Even with all this, his decision to attempt to deliver these children from his fate and the fate of many others, is heart-felt and sincere.

X-Men Legacy is easily one of the best books in the Marvel NOW line-up and perhaps one of the best titles in the last few years. Spurrier’s writing is compelling, and while the book has had multiple artists, it has not suffered for it. Rather, the changing of art is almost symbolic of the constantly changing landscape that is David’s psyche. All-in-all, if you haven’t already started reading this, go back and start at issue one. If you have, then you are in good company.

Story: 5 - Excellent
Art: 4 - Very Good

  1. I’m enjoying this series FAR more than I would have ever expected. It’s really something special, coming out of Marvel anyway.

  2. I’ve been pleasantly surprised with this series as well and I’m glad I’ve given it a chance.
