    Marvel Disassembled - thepuremood May 2, 2013

    X-MEN LEGACY continues to mix together fresh and imaginative ideas, a dark and twisted sense of humour and the X-franchise's weirdest and most complicated love story. LEGACY follows every staple and convention of the Marvel mutant mythos – from daddy issues to bigotry to melodramatic relationships – but turns it and shakes it to turn it into something wholly unique and unpredictable. X-MEN LEGACY is the weirdest and wildest superhero book on the stands, without being superficial or acting as if it's better than the genre or source material – it respects its audience and respects its world. It's told sincerely from a very relateable and human point of view, and that's what makes it more than just another nod to Grant Morrison. This is comics for grown-ups in a very real way.

    This issue also benefits from a shift in the interior artist. While Tan Eng Huat is generally a strong fit for Spurrier's loopy, surreal writing approach, his figure work in recent issues has been haphazard and even ugly at times. Paul Davidson brings a smoother, more natural look to the series while maintaining the surreal aspects. This looks to be a strong creative pairing as Spurrier continues to upend Legion's fragile world. Read Full Review

    Sticking true to form, Spurrier bucks the trends and gives us an antagonist that is really difficult to consider a villain, or even anything but a trustworthy and "good" person. This is in stark contrast to the ridiculous radicals that has led David Haller to this man's doorstep. If you've enjoyed this series so far, this issue is guaranteed to please you and I'd be willing to bank on the rest of this story-arc playing out in a completely awesome way. Read Full Review

    X-Men Legacy might be my favorite X-book going right now, and it's set up a fascinating set of circumstances that I've got no clue how Spuirrier plans to resolve. The writing is entertaining, interesting and provocative, and the art might finally be on its way to catching up with it. Read Full Review

    From going to a group comic to a focus on one primary character who I've never previously enjoyed I give full hats off to Simon Spurrier for creating a book I can't help but fly through. Once it's done I then regret reading it so quick as I'm dying to read the next issue! Read Full Review

    X-Men Legacy progresses from done-in-one stories to our next three part arc here, as Invasive Exotics begins and introduces a whole new set of problems for David to deal with. Whilst still reeling from his involvement with Blindfold (who still plays an active (and hilarious) role in this issue), David finds himself involved with a mutant cure, and the story goes in a direction you'd almost never expect. Which is becoming the motto of this excellent series " expect the unexpected, but always expect awesomeness. Read Full Review
