    Carey's characterization for Rogue reflects her history. I'm not fully versed in X-Men continuity, but I know that Rogue was involved with Gambit and that Magneto, miraculously alive somehow, had a thing for her. Carey covers these attractions, but its her voice that truly impresses. As Rogue spoke I never once questioned whether or not that this was the same character I became fond of in Rom and even the character I loathed in Avengers Annual. Rogue's dialogue mirrors a personality forged through atoning numerous mistakes and surviving identity crisis. As presented here, Rogue is a fully mature, self-aware woman. She is what you hoped the Rogue incarnation from Rom would grow up to be. Read Full Review

    "X-Men Legacy" has really hit its stride recently, and this issue demonstrates perfectly what that means. It might not be setting the charts alight, but it remains a consistently entertaining read worth the time of any X-Men fan. Read Full Review

    IGN - Bryan Joel Mar 17, 2010

    It's hard to say what the future holds for the X-franchise coming out of "Second Coming," but smart money says there's a reconfiguring in the offing once it's over. If that's the case, it'd be a shame to shake up this formula too much, because the chemistry of Rogue and Mike Carey is clearly working. Read Full Review
