    There are a lot of X-Men books out there, and there are a lot of really good ones, but this one is making a case for its name being near the top of that list. It’s a character study on being more powerful than one knows what to do with, and a very good one at that. Read Full Review

    X-Men Legacy doesn't pretend to be anything it isn't. It's not your basic X-Men book. It's not a straight forward superhero book, either. It's a mess of madness, insanity, and a little bit of craziness thrown in too. And it makes for some fantastic reading. If you fancy something a little different, then give this book a try; you might be pleasantly surprised. Or scared. Either way. Read Full Review

    Like the first issue, the art proves to be the main drawback. It's so erratic that each page either makes it to the moon or busts. For instance, the mind-prison looks great with its many creative looking prisoners with horns and tentacles and robot arms. Legion's floating eyeball friend turned ugly werewolf, on the other hand, looks more awkward than awesome. If you like taking risks with your $2.99, then this title is still for you.

    X-Men Legacy #2 is rather heart-breaking to a fan of the original Legacy series and the quality it attained. A clumsy story that forces awkward humor and pointless accents coupled with a completely irregular art style make this one of the poorest Marvel NOW! reboots to date. Not to mention the ridiculous setting of the story in Tibet, where none of the surroundings seem to make sense. One can only hope that a new creative team could pick up on this potential ridden concept and smash it out of the park. Read Full Review

    The cover of "X-Men Legacy" #2 is the best thing about it, but Marvel even managed to bobble that as the cover stock seems to be lighter or thinner than the actual pages of this issue. It's certainly an odd choice for an odd book, but one that could be marginally justified given the nature of the story within. I know Legion has been an important character in the past, but he's also been a character that writers have never seemed to quite know what to do with. Now that Spurrier has figured it out, I'm left wanting. Read Full Review
