    Once again this is one of my favorite books on the shelves. Amazing writing and art can turn a previously dull character into something I constantly want to know more about. With this story arc coming to a close, I'm eagerly awaiting to see what is going to be coming up next! Read Full Review

    Watching Haller at work is a joy. His planning, his expletive filled inner monologue, his goofy hair, and all of it rendered with a quirky charm by Paul Davidson and Jay Leisten. While it's evident that this title doesn't have the massive big-budget production team that one would expect onAvengers, the title is actually the better for it. The colorful characters are portrayed in all of their awkward splendor and once again that word “charm” comes to mind. If you're looking for a less trod corner of the Marvel Universe, if you can believe such a thing exists, then come check outX-Men Legacy! Read Full Review

    Issue #12 wraps up the current phase of Legacy in a fun way while also setting the stage for the next phase of Legion's plan for self-improvement. As long as the series can avoid the pesky cancellation hammer that has squashed so many other high quality but under-performing Marvel books lately, it should all be smooth sailing from here.

    With twelve issues under its belt, X-Men Legacy has easily cemented itself as my favourite X-Book, and one that I look forward to reading all month. There's so much to praise here that I often don't even know where to start, and this issue is no exception to that either " there are plotlines resolving themselves, others being opened up, character development abound, and an art style that is almost perfectly suited to the action. It may not have what would be considered an all-star creative team, but that doesn't stop it from being one of the most continually impressive books on the stands. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - thepuremood Jun 20, 2013

    Though a step down from it's regular level of extremely special proficiency, X-MEN LEGACY is still a comic book worth reading, a fun satire on formulaic superhero adventure and the public's willingness to eat it up, as well as a moving love story involving Legion and Blindfold. Bringing together many of the stories seemingly disparate plot elements while continuing a wonderful sense of momentum, as well as featuring an exciting and unusual fight scene complete with beloved B-list mutants. A smart, laugh-out loud call against stagnation and sheep-herding politics in an X-men comic book – the irony is not lost on Spurrier. Read Full Review
