    I'm disappointed at the news that Legacy is about to come to an end. Ever since Grant Morrison's departure, this particular book had been mostly filler- a vehicle for the repetitive bore that has become the traditional action-oriented comic book. Carey's run, however, has at times flown in the face of the customary X-Men schematic, presenting the sort of smart, memorable tales that are usually reserved for stories outside of established canon. Carey is really on to something here and I hope that the series can maintain its intelligent approach even as it drops its new moniker and returns to more traditional trappings. Read Full Review

    Carey is normally much better than this, and hopefully future issues of "X-Men: Legacy" will show his strengths off more than what we got here. With a promise for the return of Rogue post-"Messiah Complex," it sounds like there's a big storyline just around the corner. This issue, though, just feels like he's stalling for an extra month until the next direction of "X-Men: Legacy" is revealed. Everyone involved deserves and is capable of better. Read Full Review
