    Hey, you know what? This was one of the best issues of this series in recent memory. Everything was just so smooth here. Rogue and Gambit still work well together and Danger is a strange, but welcome addition to this comic. It all just really worked for me this month. The story was fast-paced and simple, the fight scenes were well done and Gambit told Cyclops off(which earned Gambit a ton of respect from me). It was all good! Read Full Review

    IGN - Bryan Joel Jul 8, 2009

    X-Men: Legacy #226 is billed as a tie-in to "Utopia" rather than a proper piece of it, and should be viewed as such. If you're a longtime X-Men fan, this is probably going to be right up your alley - if for no other reason than seeing Rogue and Gambit alongside the X-Men, kicking some tail for the first time in two years. But if you're more of a casual X-observer, you may want to stick to the main "Utopia" series, as you're probably going to be a bit nonplussed by the lack of relevance to the larger crossover plot.

    The Comic Addiction - Antony Ellis Aug 22, 2009

    As I mentioned earlier, Suppressing Fire when read apart as part one and two does disappoint as both singular issues don’t deliver enough action, but read together in annual style, they provide a really fun story with an awesome kick ass Rogue with the X-Men again. The hints of what is to come with the title are also very intriguing and Carey does great work to give Trance some important character development. Read Full Review

    Carey does the best he can and gives lots of little fun moments (Rogue versus Ares, in particular), but at the end of the day, it's little more than a fill-in. Here's looking forward to "X-Men: Legacy" getting its own stories and voice back shortly. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Alex C. Lupp Jul 14, 2009

    The same can be said for Dustin Weaver's artwork. It isnt bad. In fact, there's nothing glaringly bad about it, but there isn't anything great either. It straddles the middle ground, and there is nothing particularly wrong with that, except that with rising comic book prices, mediocre just doesn't cut it anymore. With how much I read, at this rate this series might not stay on my pull list much longer. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Kyle Posluszny Jul 9, 2009

    I wish there was more I could say about X-MenLegacy #226, but there just isn't a whole lot to the book. It's solid all around, but completely unremarkable and far from essential. Consider picking it up only if you are a fan of the characters or want to have a bigger picture of what went down during the Utopia one-shot. Read Full Review
