The Legion Quest Part 1: The Son Rises In The East wiki last edited by pikahyper on 02/26/14 09:55PM View full history

While battling Legion in the Negev Desert, the X-Men are transported back in time!

Continued from X-Factor #109. Legion is in Israel and is sane. That's a bad thing because he is ten times more powerful than his father Professor X and his actions seem to be quite hostile. The X-Men, PLO, and Israeli armies attempt to stop him but can't phase him. He takes Storm back in time to Egypt and forces her to watch the plane that killed her mother crash into her building. The X-Men try to pump Bishop full of energy to take on Legion, but instead the team anchors themselves and all are taken with Legion back in time to where he intends to help make Xavier's dream become a reality. In the Shi'ar Empire, Jahf the Watcher delivers a cryptic message to Lilandra: the end of all that is. Story continues in X-Men #40.

When Failure Works 0

This issue is constructed oddly perfect. Within this one issue we have the present mixing it up with the barely past. One scene is from about 20 minutes before, then it shifts to the actual present, and then back to a few minutes ago. It's not confusing and it prepares the reader for what they must expect from this event, just on a bigger scale. The gem of this event is the scope and consequence of what Legion is up to. He aims to eradicate Magneto from history to allow Xavier's dream to be real...
