Mutants have taken hostages, and X-Factor is taking the blame! But before judgment is rendered for POLARIS, HAVOK, WOLFSBANE, STRONG GUY, QUICKSILVER and MADROX the MULTIPLE MAN, VAL COOPER and X-Factor will take the stand! But who's telling the truth, and what really went down at the LATVERIAN EMBASSY? It all makes sense...from a certain point of view.
Return to the fan-favorite era of Peter David's X-FACTOR run with an all-new adventure set between X-FACTOR #75 and #76!

    Despite the simple premise, the humor, color, action and team dynamics set this issue high. It's such a classic Peter David adventure that it makes you want to dive into you comic stack and read all the others. Read Full Review

    X-Men Legends #5 returns us to the Peter David run of X-Factor. The story is well written and the art is in that great 80s style. Read Full Review

    As I stated earlier, I have not read too many issues from Peter David's X-Factor run. After reading X-Men Legends #5, I can say that I potentially need to buy the omnibus when it comes out (late this year or early next year). The senate hearing model coupled with the blatant disdain towards mutants serves as a perfect reminder of how mutants are still viewed (even today). If you are either a fan of Peter David OR if you have never dived into his X-Factor run, now is this time to do so with X-Men Legends #5. You will not be disappointed. Read Full Review

    If old school X-Men is your jam,X-Men Legends#5 is another strong entry in the series, giving readers an enjoyable blast from the past that isn't too earth-shattering to turn heads but provides an enjoyable read. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Jul 21, 2021

    Similar to the previous stories in this series, X-Men Legends #5 doesn't have any real stakes by virtue of its setup in an already-established past, nor does it seek to answer any long-dangling plot threads. But it is nice to see an industry legend like Peter David be given a chance to revisit a much-loved past, and sometimes, vibing in the warm glow of nostalgia is enough. Read Full Review

    As with the rest of X-Men: Legends to date, the premise doesn't feel strong enough to justify the trip back through time, but the execution is stellar enough that diehard fans and those nostalgic for the era should find it enjoyable. Read Full Review
