    X-MEN LEGACY is, without a doubt, my favourite of the Marvel NOW! titles. Only this title could pull off a story that alludes WATCHMEN, attacks its own genre and fans, questions superhero morality and tells a stark and complicated story about hurt people trying to love each other. David's story is only getting bigger and bigger with each issue, and Spurrier seems incapable of running out of steam any time soon. If you haven't hopped on board yet, now is the time.

    Tan Eng Huat struggled a bit with this issue. The main complaint I would like to make is that Blindfold looked like a dude on more than one occasion, and that was pretty weird. Facial expressions and form have been a nagging issue for Huat on this title and it's tough to watch this continue to be a problem. X-Men Legacy could be a much stronger title if these nagging problems could be resolved. The issue is still enjoyable in its own right, as has the series as a whole, but these details are holding the title back from reaching the next level. Read Full Review

    It's difficult to review this book without feeling like I'm repeating myself (I'm sure that previous sentence has been in every review of this book since issue #2), but it's because the sentiments remain true. This book is always a curveball; I can never tell whether the issue I'm going to read is going to swerve one way or another, and once the path that it takes has been plotted, it's always something completely unpredictable that I would never have thought of. Despite some odd scribbly bits in the artwork, this is another solid issue in the series. Read Full Review

    When David made the pledge to be more proactive than the X-Men proper, it was obvious the debate of stopping someone or something before it even did anything was going to pop up eventually. While David does make some good points, it was obvious that Ruth was not going to agree with him, so the outcome was never in question, but it was still sad to see the two of them so unhappy with what just happened, and an interesting shift in tone for what had been a fairly humorous book the last few issues.
