    Ultimately, even while "Original Sin" works shallowly with its outward flash, it's also important to point out that this whole story is a little too reliant on violence, which in this case strays from the formula Carey has so brilliantly established for Legacy. The first year of Carey's run has been a very smart, albeit esoteric story, aimed at long time fans of the X-Men. In the end, I can't help but feel like this sort of action yarn is a small step backwards for a title that had to this point been a strong attestation to the validity of intelligent superhero comics.
