    There will be those on either side of that fence, but that's a good thing. Marvel and DC are both at their best when they're competitive, and both publishers are looking strong right now. If this one-shot is any indication, fans have great things to look forward to during Marvel Legacy. Read Full Review

    Although the pacing of the issue is a bit all over the place, Jason Aaron manages to make the most of the whopping 58 pages he is given, providing a huge sense of scale in his storytelling, which is compliment well by Esad Ribi's art. Marvel Legacy #1 is a fantastic starting out point for the future of the Marvel Universe, and after faltering the past few years, it seems that Marvel is back in full force and ready to tell some great stories.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 27, 2017

    Marvel Legacy #1 is almost eerily similar to DC Universe Rebirth #1 in many ways, but it also works for the same exact reasons. Legacy allows writer Jason Aaron and his artists to take a step back and reexamine the course of the Marvel Universe, while also just introducing some very fun ideas and bringing back a few fan-favorite characters in the process. It's a little choppy in places, but well worth a read for anyone who wants to see this superhero universe thrive again. Read Full Review

    Overall, Marvel Legacy #1 almost gets it right. In fact, it gets very close.

But it does come ever so close, and it is certainly enough to renew some cautious hope for the future of Marvel and where this continuing story will lead. Read Full Review

    Legacy doesn’t fix anything. But it has promise. It has hope. It’s been a while since we’ve had anything resembling actual hope in a Marvel comic book and it’s nice to see that returning. Aaron recognizes the things that make the Marvel universe work. It’s more than heroes fighting heroes or heroes fighting villains or who wields a hammer or shield. It’s about exploration and pushing forward and charging into that great unknown to find the impossible. Marvel revolutionized comics book once upon a time and it’s clear that they want to again. Only time will tell if the creators themselves can reach the heights of their legacies. Read Full Review

    I really enjoyed this book and I am hoping that Marvel sticks to the line of telling tighter stories. If you are a lapsed reader as I am, this book may do well to convince you to come back. Aaron and Ribics work here is a solid effort to win back a lot of the audience who may have been lost in the last few years, and to be brutally honest, I will slowly and carefully with my dollars, dipping back into the Marvel pool. As long as we dont get derailed with yet another Marvel book wide event promising to shake up the universe as we know it, I will stick around. As far as this book is concerned, its a very good start forward, lets hope that it continues. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Sep 28, 2017

    While the Marvel universe seems to get redefined at least once a month, it's rare for a story to feel as large in scope as it's trying to be. Marvel Legacy #1 succeeds in conveying that feeling. From those disillusioned by Marvel's recent direction and enamored by its past, it offers something to latch onto. The fact it does all that without a time machine, clones, or magic spells makes it all the more astounding. Read Full Review

    This is by no means a bad comic, and the interstitial single-page glimpses do the needed job of getting us excited for some of the titles coming up. But to get back the many readers Marvel have lost over the past decade, they really needed to hit this one out of the park. And while it's a decently acceptable comic " especially for those who are already invested " it's perhaps a little too all-over-the-map to be the massive shot in the arm which Marvel needed.

    Overall: Marvel Legacy #1 earned a higher score than it technically should have from The Revolution. But, anytime an issue delivers the return of Tony Stark, Bruce Banner and Wolverine plus Steve Rogers embracing being Captain America and a Fantastic Four sighting then that issue is going to get a high score no matter the issues' weaknesses. Marvel Legacy #1 is certainly no DC Rebirth #1. But, Marvel Legacy #1 is most definitely a step in the right direction in what is going to be a long uphill battle for Marvel to win back readers.

    Marvel Legacy #1 will probably thrill the remaining fans of the former House of Ideas, as its another story that crams in as many characters as they possibly can. Things are returning to a status quo that may appease longtime Marvel Boys (and Girls), and just maybe this is the beginning of things getting straightened out. However, I found it grating and a slog to get through, stellar artwork or not. I thankfully didnt have to buy this, and I wont recommend it to the average fan. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Sep 27, 2017

    So, Marvel Legacy #1 is, unfortunately, mediocre overall. Its a teaser book. It wants you to buy the new titles. It adds very little story of its own. The characters are cool, and the art is great, if disparate taken as a whole. I cant really recommend it, though. The price point is too high, and it really is just an advert for all the new titles and directions Marvel is putting out there now. Give this one a pass. Read Full Review

    RaisingBlack Sep 27, 2017

    Marvel Legacy is a solid one-shot with amazing art. The Marvel Universe is a large beast in need of a single vision for the future. This one-shot gives us a glimpse of what marvel Legacy could be for all readers. Jason Aaron does a great job of creating a history that I would love to revisit. The Avengers 1,000,000 BC are an interesting group for how little they are a part of this comic, and the ongoing mystery and figures presented are a chance for Marvel to make an event feel worth the time and effort again. There is a moment when the three main legacy superheroes of Sam Wilson (Captain America), Jane Foster (Thor), and Riri Williams (IronHeart) are fighting side by side. Jason gives a moment of questioning how long these characters will wear their mantle. Sam is returning to the Falcon. Jane Foster is facing death and Riri though a fascinating character is the most in doubt for holding onto the mantle of Iron Man. Jason Aaron takes a moment to wink at us as readers and just live in the moment. Maybe Marvel's legacy approach has not been all that all readers want, but that does not mean that these legacy heroes were ever poor characters. I am on board to continue reading Falcon and my hope is that Jane Foster continues being Thor or some kind of hero based in the Thor mythos. Jane Foster Thor has earned that. Many faces pop up in legacy, but the comic is remarkably focused. Street level heroes get a very small mention in a single panel. This book is very focused on the main titles and the cosmic level of the Marvel universe. My only nick pick is that i would have welcomed this as a three-issue story. Maybe focusing on the different levels Marvel itself, but I imagine we will hear more of the Rabid Celestial under our feet. The biggest reveals are of course the return of Logan and the ending featuring the children of Richards, but there was one panel I found the most WOW-inducing. Throneworld of the Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda and Birnin T’Challa that mea

    I appreciate the effort but the issue still kind of reads like a clustephuck... I thought it was odd how it looked like Wolverine literally hatched from his adamantium tomb thing. I have faith in Aaron just based on the fact that many of the Marvel titles I still read are authored by him but I'll need to read more or legacy to get a feel if this is in fact the right direction.

    The wraparound cover is very beautiful. I love it. And that's all. Ok Ribic art is great. But I'm not fond of it. I prefer Del Mundo ^^ The story is really dumb. Once more marvel who didn't know how use a to powerful character turn it as a killer. Dumb idea ... I don't like the new Ghost rider so I hopped he will be killed ^^ The story with the avengers is a little more interesting, but hard to understand. I'm not found of the return of the one with claws. I like more the part about the first family. There is to much story who disturbs the story Aaron try to tell (Deadpool, Steve bowering Rogers, odinson ...) For something that talk about legacy that a shame not seen any New Warriors, New Mutant, Generation X, New X-Men academy, Avengers Academy or Young Avengers members (Not even a Champions). And the wraparound is lying to his teas about what I read in the interior. Thanks marvel to remembering me to not have any hope you can make a great story again !

    For anyone who missed the Marvel reveal I am going to throw a spoiler at you, Wolverine is alive. Anyone who was missing Logan even with the numerous replacements running around your three year wait is over. I thought his death was a great place to leave him, much like Captain Marvel (who would still appear from time to time) so I am not to focused on that. The point of interest in this book for me was the prehistory Avengers and the unusual Robbie Reyes (Ghost Rider) story that accompanies it. We only get a small moment with the team which was a shame. In that small moment though there was some interesting characters. An Agamotto that mentions a knowledge of the cosmos. Odin trying to control a wild Mjolnir. Also the personal favorite a caveman Ghost Rider demanding vengeance. What could a caveman riding a flaming Mastodon want vengeance for? I really wanted to know, but there is no answer. Then we get a confused Robbie Reyes going up against a New Universe classic Starbrand who is trying to stop him from finding the only villain fit for an Avengers team filled with ancient gods who has been buried beneath the Earth. There are some very clear paths to stories with very little answers in this issue. It feels a bit like an event start, but it is hard to say. Marvel did say we are getting a break from events. There is some great art as well as some that I felt unflattering. Particularly for Thor (Jane Foster). There is a very cheerful tone to the stories and I look forward to seeing where this goes. The price is a little steep so it might be hard to justify that cost. I felt for the size of the book it was worth it, but unless you are a big fan of the Thor or the Generations stories you might not get enough to feel the same.

    The writing and the art was good. Really liked the returns of the characters, especially loved the final page. My problem with this was the, obviously, the price, which is definitely too big for something that more resembles of a preview magazine of the stories to come, than a proper oneshot. Though still, it made me quite hopeful for Marvel's future and I hope it will not disappoint me.

    thecomiccookebook Sep 27, 2017

    This was frustrating. There were some cool reveals and hints at future story lines but most of the book was pointless. To compare to Rebirth (which is impossible not to do), Johns planted the seeds for the future of DC through a unified theme. This, however, was just a bunch of little teases at random story lines without any sense of a connecting thread. I will say that the art was fantastic; artists such as Esad Ribic, Steve McNiven, Chris Samnee, Russell Dauterman, etc. like always are great. Overall, the book is not a complete disappointment and I do have hope for the Marvel Universe moving forward but I wish this was a little more meaningful.

    Superheroes for Hire Sep 30, 2017

    First, I'll admit 2 things. I'm a DC fan first, and I couldn't make it through this whole book. The chopped up voiceover narration bits got to be too much for me, so I skimmed the rest and looked at the excellent artwork until the last couple pages. The B.C. story was interesting, then it ended. The Ghost Rider/Starbrand story was an odd choice to weave everything else around. And why did Starbrand look like an old man suddenly? Why did we have to read random S.H.I.E.L.D. agent banter? I thought the Avengers scene dialogue was clunky. Ironheart hasn't even met Jane Foster Thor, and yet she just appears on the mission with Thor and Falcon Cap? Honestly I was going for a more coherent story, but in the end it turned out to be a longer and more expensive version of the Marvel Now Point One type of preview issue. I guess the Infinity gems/stones will be the next event sometime down the line.

    "Marvel Legacy" is getting a lot of comparisons to "DC Rebirth," and they certainly have a lot in common. One of these things is that they both play to their base, respectively giving both Marvel and DC heads a lot to geek out over. Is "Marvel Legacy" as good as "DC Rebirth," in terms of story told, and building anticipation for the future? Probably not; "Rebirth" feels tighter and more focussed, and it's hard to top the idea of the Watchmen entering the DCU. But is it awesome in its own right? Fuck yeah. There is a lot going on here, and, yeah, it doesn't work as a narrative piece as well as "Rebirth" did, but, as a Marvel guy, I loved it. The 1,000, 000 BC Avengers is a great way to open the issue, and I did get a real sense of the heart of Marvel in it. I'm not one of those fans who have been shitting on Marvel's recent performance; I don't like Gwenpool, or Moon Girl, and I miss Bruce Banner and good-guy Steve Rogers, but I don't buy the idea of the MCU as being misguided and just not that good; I still collect four more times Marvel than DC just because I like the universe more, and probably, a lot of fanboy nostalgia. Which is where "Legacy" comes in. New and old characters in the MCU are represented here, and the issue does a good job of making it seem like Marvel has just been being Marvel with its influx of new characters or new iterations on old hits. The art in the issue is stellar; there are super-cool moments throughout (Wolverine placing his beer in a dead Frost Giant's guts to keep it cool; Lady Thor and Falcon Cap making out) and Jason Aaron does a great job capturing the voices of the many characters here. "Marvel Legacy" does its job...it has me pumped up for not only a lot of titles I really like already, but some I've cancelled over the last year. Make mine Marvel!

    This is not A REBIRTH 👌🏿 It is a Set Up book for the future. I onow the comparisons will be made but IMO they are 2 different things. One nook was anout plucking things from the Past to connect with the present and the other is a set up for what is in store for the future.

    The bad who Sep 28, 2017

    Pick it up for the art, read it for the reveals, but not the dialogues. It is basically a Marvel DC Rebirth. Some have said it's a publicity for their next year's comics, and it's hard to argue with them. Still, even knowing that, I can't wait for what's next! Getting me excited is easy, but I feel it's the right time to like comics right now. An Epic narrative is coming and it will all fall into place in time, but the way has been opened and Marvel just need to walk it down...which could still be something they fail if they stray too far after promising so much.

    Good because Jason Aaron is good, but a little too haphazard: - 1000000 BC Avengers are not a good idea - The Rabid Celestial is intriguing - Return of Wolverine is welcome - Does this all cohere into an epic story for the Marvel Univeras?

    I would have liked to love this one more. The art was good all through and Jason Aaron's script is competent, though nowhere near the level of what he's doing on Thor. Truth be told, this comic lacks a bit of focus and sometimes feels like a series of previews, without the coherence of what made DC Rebirth#1 a great reading.

As far as what it actually is - a loosely connected narrative teasing the forthcoming books - it works well, though a lot of the teasers were old news. There are a couple of returns of big characters, one that made me go "meh" and the second which surprised me and worked. Overall it's a bit of a mess but has some great moments too.

    Marvel Legacy's a bit of a mixed bag. There are some really good moments in the book, but overall it feels like a blend of short teaser trailers for the upcoming Legacy series, more than a the definitive, connected story to bring Marvel back to its roots that we were told it would be. And at an asking price of $5.99, that's a hard sell for a series of "sneak peeks". I did enjoy the 1,000,000 B.C. Avengers, and Esad Ribic's artwork is a masterpiece. But I was disappointed that for all the hype Marvel gave these characters, they were really only in about 10% of the issue. Maybe they'll be explored more later on, but in this one-shot they aren't used as much as Marvel's PR advertised them to be. The remaining plots had some highs and lows. The scene and dialogue between Johnny Storm and Ben Grimm was a great nod to fans that Marvel acknowledges they haven't forgotten them, and has actually made me more likely to pick up Marvel's Two-In-One series, featuring Jim Cheung's artwork. The section including the trio of Sam Wilson, Lady Thor, and Ironheart contained some pretty shoddy dialogue and reminded me how poorly Marvel has written these characters over the last couple of years. Then there were other sections that were plain filler, and felt out of place for the story this Legacy one-shot was trying to tell (Deadpool, Steve Rogers, and Doctor Strange & Iron Fist in particular). We did however get a nice reveal of Logan's return to Marvel Comics. And the final page reveal of Valeria being the narrator of this Legacy one-shot almost made all of it's shortcomings worth it. Marvel could be on the verge of something special here, but I don't know how much I really trust that they'll follow through. Marvel Legacy has potential. In fact, a lot of potential. But this issue doesn't have the same effect that DC: Rebirth had for DC. Essentially it's a collection of previews for $5.99. And for me, that's a bit disappointing.
