    The only major drawback I can see with Legacy is that it appeals to older, more seasoned X-readers thanks to its numerous flashbacks and simmering plotlines. All the same, Carey is in true top form with this book, and even a total newbie should be able to recognize that. Read Full Review

    Carey's writing is consistently at a level that most scribes in this medium could only hope for. X-Men: Legacy has been sharp, tightly plotted, well read, and exciting. The bigger themes have had time to build momentum and seem to be reaching an exploding point with the Cyclops/Xavier confrontation. Legacy means "A gift given to someone after death."
