Mike Carey to leave X-Men Legacy + guess who the new cast will be

#1 Posted by Baddamdog (2223 posts) - - Show Bio

This is absolutely terrible news, I am so, so gutted but Marvel has confirmed that Mike Carey is leaving X-Men Legacy. 
 
Source CBR: 
Marvel has announced via today's X-Men teaser that Mike Carey will be joined by artist Khoi Pham on "X-Men Legacy -- for Carey's final arc on the title. The teaser image, a variant cover by Nick Bradshaw, features series star Rogue front and center while the rest of the cast is blacked-out behind her in a manner similar to the publisher's previous teasers.

and I dislike Carey and Pham...hence I will be ignoring this book

Who is the owner of that HUGE arm on the right? Hard to guess who else is there besides Gambit.

Rockslide?...I can imagine him posing like that
#13 Posted by Mutant God (3020 posts) - - Show Bio

if thats Rockslide then the little one is probably Anole
#14 Posted by cattlebattle (12675 posts) - - Show Bio
@Mutant God: I think Anole is on Wolverines team, one guy has a very oval head, thats usually the way he is drawn

The X-Men Legacy lineup is part of WaTXM's team. Put the two covers together, then do the same for GenHOpe and UXM covers.

I've criticized Carey as much as anybody, but I wish him well on whatever his next project is.

Mannnnn why does he have to leave? D:  
 
Also the person on the top looks like either Polaris or Boom Boom (If it is Tabitha idk why they'd make it looks like she could fly. lol)

X Men Legacy was the one X title I really looked forward to, even though I'm tired of it being Rogue and the X Men. I like Carey as a writer.

Why are Marvel paying this Bradshaw guy to do covers? He's possibly the worst artist I've ever seen.

#25 Posted by John Valentine (16307 posts) - - Show Bio

Urgh. No, Marvel. HOW COULD YOU DO THIS? Carey's been your best X-Writer for years!

It looks like Havok next to Wolverine (only that his powers are coming from his head... but then again, X-Men First Class....) and maybe that's Polaris above Rogue... maybe she is going back to her "darker" costume...

I started reading X-men (and comics) coincidentally at the same time Carey started and I have enjoyed his 6 or so year run a lot. Will be a shame to see him go but it was going to happen some time. Any news on who will be writing next?

#29 Posted by Baddamdog (2223 posts) - - Show Bio
@VanAce: No word yet, but they're gonna have to be pretty good to follow Carey's run!

I love Carey and it's why I always felt like I should be reading his X-Men, thanks for solving my dilemma for me Marvel

to quote Gollum, this cover artist makes Rogue and Wolverine look like a couple of fat hobbits.
