    Carey also works in a strong undercurrent about duty, as a Vault member chooses her own way, Rouge deals with the consequences of not following orders during Second Coming, and Indra is confronted with a family dilemma. Each has demands placed upon them, and it's interesting to see how each handles it based on their past experiences and culture. Legacy has always seemed like the X-title that has always suffered the most from mutant-events. Unless the main story is spread among the main titles, Legacy is stuck with superfluous side stories. With Second Coming finally finished, Carey has done a great job of reclaiming the series and getting the new arc off on the right foot. Read Full Review

    It's nice to see "X-Men Legacy" back doing its own thing again; I think Carey has found a good direction for the title, and one that shows a lot of potential. I'll admit that some of the characters he's using, like Loa and Hellion, are little more than names for me right now. Hopefully they'll stick around long enough that we can start to get a feel for them. For now, though, I'm content to sit back and see what happens next. Read Full Review

    This issue is definitely a "one step forward, two steps back" situation. There are some great things going on with the characters as Carey once again shows he has the chops, but some aspects of the plot are really lacking and the art is a major misstep for me. I'm not ready to give up on this series yet, but I think there is way more potential for greatness than what we are seeing here. Read Full Review
