    Don't tell Mojo, but artist Jorge Molina's the real star of this X-Men adventure. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Oct 16, 2017

    A crossover like this, with no grave stake against all of mutant kind, is what has been missing from X-Men comics for so long. This is a light, action-packed adventure with a huge cast of our favorite mutant heroes. ResurreXion was a huge first step in the right direction for X-Books, Legacy should see the X-Men firmly planted as a prominent corner of Marvel Comics again. Read Full Review

    The second part of "Mojo Worldwide" stumbles a little in this issue by keeping the focus primarily on the X-Men Gold cast and leaving most of the X-Men Blue team to cameo appearances in their own book. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Oct 14, 2017

    This is a mixed bag of a comic. If youre looking just for some X-Men fun, then, yeah, it can provide it. However, looking even barely beyond the surface shows a pretty shallow adventure fueled by corporate anxiety. As such, I have to say give this one a pass. Read Full Review

    Fantastic art, great storytelling, we get to see Longshot, and tons of references for hardcore X-Men fans. Easy 10

    There is some really great art in this issue like the fun of seeing the team members in old costumes. I was not all that excited about the crossover with X-Men: Gold, but I did think this issue had a bit of fun to it so it changed my mind. There is some slight action that is enjoyable and fun moments. The classic moment where others in the Marvel universe react to what is happening like you would see in past X crossovers for instance. The story does not move forward all that quickly though. The majority of the book is showing what the teams are up to and how they have been split up. With as many double page spreads as we get it feels that there is an attempt to pad the crossover a bit. I am also going to throw some spoilers in here after this point, Bloodstorm is maybe killed. I say maybe because it seems unlikely a harpoon could kill a vampire, but we are led to believe that is what happens. If this is true it seems cheap to introduce a character and kill them off before they are given a chance to grow. It is also pointless because there has not been time to become emotionally invested in the character. There is also the emergence of Longshot. While I love the character and am glad to see him back, the return is a bit confusing. He recently showed up in promotional material for Cable so it makes you wonder where this falls. He is also the equivalent of a YouTube personality which I have to say I love of terms of his place in the Mojoverse. Stealing ratings with subscribers seems fitting but how would he get there? The meta storytelling in Mojo's games was also a fun moment for me. In all I think this a better throwback to the X-Men's past than anything Gold has been attempting so far.

    I still don't like the story, but the characters are cool and the art is amazing.

    While the story is good, Mojo's onslaught of the X-men is so frantic that it's hard to keep up with everything going on, and not enough time is devoted to each group. I'm pretty upset about a certain character's potential being (maybe) squandered too.
