    I knew going into this series that it was going to be crazy. I didn't know that it would blossom into my favourite X-Men title on the stands. When there are books like All-New X-Men and Wolverine and the X-Men also there, I think it gives that statement even more weight. Spurrier and Molina have turned out an issue here that has me literally begging for more, and I cannot wait to see where this weird and wacky series goes next. Read Full Review

    Between the psychic chaos of this issue and the running battle between the X-Men and a band of Dire Wraiths, Jorge Molina has no shortage of prime visual material to work with. The result is a much more exciting and varied take on the Jean Grey School than we've seen with his Wolverine and the X-Men issues. Still, I really would have liked to see how Tan Eng Huat would have handled this script. Huat's loopy style fits Spurrier's oddball storytelling like a glove. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Matt Sargeson Feb 6, 2013

    It might be the benefit of having read all five issues in quick succession but X-Men Legacy is proving to be a pretty good diversion from the team books that make up the bulk of the X-franchise. Like Morbius: The Living Vampire " Legacy's fellow oddball Marvel Now title " it lies a little off the beaten path, reminding us that the House of Ideas can still occasionally surprise with decent strong self-contained series amidst the ever-expanding core of densely connected titles. There's fun and freedom to be had when working with under-used characters at the outskirts of the Marvel Universe, and Spurrier, Molina and co are making the most of it. It's that rare exception: this book you should absolutely judge by its covers. Read Full Review

    This is one of those books that's likely going to need a lot of support to keep going. Sure, it's got X-Men in the title, but its central character is a really weird one, and we as comic fans tend to like weird characters well enough to enjoy their existence, but we tend not to gravitate toward their books, sadly. Let David Haller be one of the ones to defy that rule. Read Full Review

    The revelation/twist at the end leaves the door open for more to come but still provides enough closure to properly end the first arc. Read Full Review
