    X-Men: Legends #4 is likely one of those comics that some will bemoan as a story where "nothing happens," and, in fairness, the plot is circular, but that's not the point. Instead, Ann Nocenti uses her two issues on X-Men: Legends not to plug some hole in continuity, answering questions almost nobody was asking, but to show her skill as a satirist with a distinct and strong authorial voice.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Nov 11, 2022

    Though it lacks the kind of wit it might have had, it IS nice to see a story almost perfectly matching themes that echoed through X-Men comics in the second half of the 1980s. There is so much more that could have been done with Mojo in the era that never quite had a chance to develop as various events whipped around the Marvel Universe, sweeping it into the 1990s. With the right momentum, an extended Longshot series might still work out with a writer who has a chance to build it into a more complicated satire. As for X-Men: Legends...next month, it shuffles forward to 1992 to pursue an adventure set between X-Factor #75 and #76.  Read Full Review

    Female empowerment has been a key cornerstone of the X-Men world, but this book makes it into a punchline rather than simply showing empowered women. The spiral effects and the reference to the X-Babies are nice but definitely not enough to save this book. Thankfully the nature of this anthology allows us to move onto another creative team next issue with renewed hope for truly legendary storytelling. Read Full Review
