    A thought provoking first chapter that is loaded with mystery and a creative way to bring mutant oppression back into the X-universe. Hard to grade this issue with confidence without knowing more about the true story. Read Full Review

    One of the drawbacks with this crossover is that Carey isn't giving away the story's origin in the opening issues. It's a leap of faith and so far it's holding my interest. The cast is big making getting to know the characters difficult, but if the story stays Rogue centric then it probably won't matter. Carey has a good story cooking here and I think any fan of the X-Men would enjoy this Age of X storyline. Read Full Review

    "Age of X" gets off to good start with "X-Men Legacy" #245 with Carey both establishing the status quo of this alternate reality and beginning the main plot, which seems to revolve around the nature of this world. Some hints and clues appear about things not being right, and it's impressive that he's able to pack so much in without it feeling dogged down by details. Read Full Review
