    Ultimately, some of the joys inherent in Legacy remain visible through all the trivialities. Scott Eaton's pencils are clean and Carey's dialogue is smooth. The problem is that the core story swims against everything the duo has done in the series to this point. It falls victim to the same theatrical themes that drag so many of the other X-title down. Just because Legacy and Origins share topical similarities doesn't mean they are categorically cohesive. I sincerely hope that new readers don't view this issue as representative of what one can usually expect from Legacy, because Carey's run on the title has been much, much better than what this particular installment presents.
