How much gel must Legion use to get his hair looking like that every morning :)

i dont see a noob writer like Simon Spurrier doing any good to a high level character in the marvel universe . Legacy should be left alone to his creator & original artists . to the previous posts, legion doesn't need gel that is high level TK Legion could be the total sum of Charles experience putting blocks in peoples minds & destroying villains like Shadow King & alikes . being passed on to his offspring . so who knows maybe a lil bit of cyclops blocked memories living as a persona inside the mind of legion & his thousands of personalities .

I don't know about this..... could be cool, but they are already a lot of great comics coming out each week. Maybe if Marvel wasn't doing bi weekly for a lot of upcoming titles I would give it a try, but right now I haven't seen anything that tells me I need to be reading Legacy.

I hope Marvel is trying to make Legion a good Guy that would be AWEsome. (+)

I thought Hope was supposed to be the "future of mutankind," this can't be a recurring theme.

It will be revealed that Hope is really one of Legion's alters O.O

I liked that trailer more than I liked #1 but I'll give Spurrier a few issues to sell me on it.

@ThePRez: We gave it a 3/5.

At least they are trying to promote a character that isn't A-List for once. I thought issue one was decent, not great. Hard to keep it on my pull list with issues coming out twice a month, but I want to try.

Isn't Legion an Omega Level Mutant? I've always had discussions with my friends at just how powerful this guy is. I wanna try this series out now...

I like it. I think Legion is an incredibly interesting character.

X-Men Legacy #1 was one of the worst issues I've read all year and by far the worst Marvel NOW! #1. I gave it 2/5 in my review (and 0.5 of that is for the ending otherwise it would have been 1.5/5!). I think CBR gave 0.5/5. The art is inconsistent and the story begins in such a boring way I regretted buying this within 2 pages. YAWN FEST!

I just said it before in here somewhere and it seems that the only subject I post on is Legion =:]

Issue one on new X-Men Legacy is my first encounter with Legion and I'm already a fan of the character. I'm a little bit surprise by the (mostly) negative reaction to the comic, and I hope it will change.

I'm not sure what the sales are for the issue 1, but I really HOPE people are buying it and the story will continue.

Great trailer too.

So only Chris Claremont, as creator, should write about him?

@G-Man: this deserved a 3.5 or 4 imo.... why?? cause i'm happy that Marvel is trying to develop forgotten characters of the past i mean... Legion never had a major role in Marvel before AVX (besides Age of X and i think the X-men Legacy arc, lost legion), so yeah i'm just glad to see Legion have some time in the spot light =)
