The X-odus Cliché 0

OverviewExodus is on a mission to kill Cyclops. Wolverine & Rogue argue whether they should warn the X-Men on Utopia while they're trying to stop Exodus. Generally there's lots of fighting; good guys against bad guys, and sometimes without the bad guys.The GoodIt's entertaining and there's plenty of flashy action. This is still Mr Christos Gage's first story arc in X-Men Legacy and it has been an entertaining & controversial start. As the action literally heats up (or cools off in Iceman...

In Utero Infestation 0

OverviewAngel is financially cut off from his billions at Worthington Industries, the kids have a miniaturised field-trip around Toad's guts, Wolverine drags Kid Omega into space, all while Kitty's body plays host to a Brood infestation.The GoodThere's rarely a quiet moment in this issue! Lots of tantalising future storylines being hinted at, and of course the start of Headmistress Kitty Pryde's pregnancy problem. Even the dialogue keeps what would normally be a quiet scene lively. The kids &amp...

X Revealed 0

Assembling in the Command Room, Professor Xavier telepathically reveals the true cause of this distorted version of reality; 'Moira' is a new personality from within Legion's mind, born from Doctor Nemesis' cull of the other personalities.

Avengers Unassembled 0

OverviewTwo stories covering the activities of popular Marvel heroes in the warped reality of the Age of X.Legacy recalls the memories of Captain America.

They're then sent on a mission to locate the newly constructed Fortress X, using Weapon-S to sniff out the mutants. Once the tower is located, new orders arrive to assassinate all mutants. Hulk relishes in the order by immediately kil...

Betraying The Betrayer 0

OverviewAll the mutants inside Fortress X question Magneto' tactics. Rather unsurprisingly, Magneto didn't really kill Legacy & Gambit in the previous issue. In fact, he'd hidden them in an underground chamber where they exchanges all his suspicions about Fortress X. Magneto sends them on a mission to find the central most room (that he has no prior knowledge of) in the tower that he'd made. They exchange a kiss & skills (thanks to Legacy's powers) and discover Doctor Nemesis held in two...

Apocalyptic X-Position 0

OverviewThe gathered mutant forces tell stories as they wait for the human forces to attack.  Each story becomes a flashback, giving an insight into how the world became warped beyond recognition.    The Good All of it.  In all seriousness, the entire issue simply oozes quality!  It's so rare that I enjoy an issue so much.  Each element of this one-shot has been perfectly honed to fit together as a perfect work of art.  Everything from the cover, art (internal & external), plot, characterisa...

Blinded By The Quality 0

OverviewBlindfold's confusing premonition powers led her on a goose-chase around Utopia.  This rapid tour of the island brought her face-to-face with monsters of different kinds.  Most of whom were the inner demons plaguing other X-men, but none of them were the malevolent force that tormented her around the peripheral of her visions.  Meanwhile, Rogue took steps to warn the higher echelons of the X-Men & set about aiding Box in hunting down missing X-Men.    The overall plot of the issue is...
