Granted it hasn't wrapped up yet, but did anyone else find this tie-in to be a bit meaningless?

Totally useless. I felt like it was a desperate attempt at reminding people that they are a part of the Marvel Universe.

Agreed...I was originally excited over it because Dazzler was on the cover of issue 3 [BUT NOT IN THE BOOK], but now looking back on it, it all seemed so dumb. Nightcrawler took commands from an Orb....that's it.

It's the worst. She still hasn't done anything in Uncanny either.

The Nightcrawler storyline was the only one with potential, but was poorly executed. The idea of using the Legacy Virus as a weapon is a little interesting as well, although the fact that it will work at all is kinda dumb if you ask me. Otherwise it felt very forced. Like the creative team really didn't try that hard.

yeah the legacy virus was a nice idea but the rest............it's like they just got lazy,

I liked the Legacy Virus idea...but surely something will happen in the last issue that will keep them from having to use it.

Was thor's SI the same as X-men?

Thor's was really good in my opinion, though I'm afraid I may be turning into a fanboy so I might be biased. They brought back Beta Ray Bill, which was awesome. There was lots of action with Donald Blake in town. Then in the end Thor shows up and the gods team together for a really cool victory.

Yeah, Thor has been great in general. I would seriously recommend it.

that was like the second time lately that the legacy virus has been brought up within an x-men book.....why does beast even have a sample of it? did he actually think that it might come in handy someday after killing tons of mutants

Don't we still keep samples of Polio and other things?

Yeah, you gotta hang on to that stuff just in case you need to study it and create some kind of inoculation.

#19 Posted by danhimself (22278 posts) - - Show Bio

but when they cured the legacy virus it cured all cases of the legacy virus no mutant could possibly have the virus anymore...so why keep it around...it just seems like an accident waiting to happen
