It all comes down to this. Rogue. Magneto. Indra. Anole. Loa. Five mutants stand between Mumbai and its utter destruction at the hands of the Children of the Vault. Will five X-Men be enough to save a city? Maybe. But one thing�s for sure: Victory won�t come without sacrifice. Rated A �$2.99

    The art is also a bit disappointing this month, as Clay Mann shares space with Tom Raney. Mann's work is still satisfyingly cohesive and fluid. Raney is no slouch either, and his style seems far more at home with the X-Men than it did in Incredible Hulks last month. Still, the constant shifts between the two artists are generally noticeable and jarring. Again, this wasn't a bad story, but it could have benefited from a slightly shorter length considering what was accomplished in the end. I'll be happy to see Carey move onto a new conflict in issue #242. Read Full Review

    Beyond that, there's little to say about the book. It ticks over nicely, sets up a few new subplots -- Remember those? Stories that weave between storylines. I know, I was surprised too. -- and knocks down a few, then brings the plot home with a neat little twist. The spread of characters means that fans from all eras of the X-Men should find something of interest to them, and Carey takes the opportunity to give characters like Indra the time in the spotlight they've been denied thus far. "X-Men Legacy" feels like a real X-Men fan's X-book, devoid of hype but high on storytelling and character, and it feels like it's only going to improve as long as Carey's in charge.
