In this volume, Professor X confronts his step-brother (Cain Marko a.k.a. the Juggernaut) then follows Rogue to Australia with Gambit in tow (where they confront a band of Shi'ar pirates and Danger) and then, finally, goes up against Exodus and his Acolytes single-handedly.

That's a lot of plot for one book but I really enjoyed it, despite the presence of one of my least favourite X-Men (Gambit... Man, I hate that guy). It didn't feel rushed or forced and had some nice character development for C

Charles Xavier's quest to rebuild his memory and reinvent himself takes him to the Australian outback where Rogue has secluded herself, thinking the solitude will do her good, after the farce that was the M-Day. Only she's not alone, Danger, the physical embodiment of the X-men danger room invades her solitude and puts her through a series of simulations in which she recreates people and places that Rogue has a traumatic association to, all this to push Rogue towards a personal crisis. Maybe Dan ...more

This review is meant to reflect my feelings on Mike Carey's writing on the X-Men books overall. I didn't become aware of him at all, really, until the lead-ins to the Messiah Complex crossover. During that, and especially since, he's shown that above all other X-Men writers, he alone seems to be up to the task of remembering their history, whether for good or bad, and embracing it and incorporating it into his books, what used to be known as "continuity", which sees to be a four-letter word at t ...more

N.B. This review is for the entire X-Men Legacy series, of which this is the first installment.

I found myself conflicted throughout this saga: there was something about it that rubbed me the wrong way yet I was unable to stop reading it! The intertwining of the various storylines seemed clumsy, taking away from the cooler plots. Too many flashbacks and not enough context makes for bulky reading. Perhaps it was the fact that large portions of this story arc are supplemented in other comics not i

Still with the random flashback panels, and I'm starting to get numb to the self-indulgence of it all. I like the Rogue storyline tho, and once in a while Carey comes up with a funny or profound line.

But really I know I'm just catching up, biding my time until the next big "event" story that's coming in the X-verse. This feels like I'm just doing my chores - fun enough while I'm in it, but not that memorable (other than the changes in character that the final two issues create).

I guess, reading

Hooray for a well-characterized return of Gambit and Rogue.

I didn't really care for this, and I'm not really sure what the point is for the Legacy series...I'm guessing it is to deal with loose ends and things that are laying around untold or unresolved in the X-Men world. Positives: Gambit and Rogue, who I was always so happy to see in the cartoon in the early-mid 90s, yet almost never seem to be in the comic versions. Gambit is a great character potential-wise and if they gave someone with talent the reins of him and his own title, I think his popular ...more

OK, so I don't know exactly where Legacy is going these days. It only seems to be around as a series to revise and sort out all the side stories that have been dangling around in the X-universe for years. Sorting out Professor X. Mr. Sinister. Wolverine and Daken. Now Rogue and Danger. Don't get me wrong, it's good that these plots are finally being dealt with, but it just seems like they are rushing through all of them right now so that they can finally start integrating Legacy back into the ma ...more

I want to like this more than I do. I'm enjoying all the flashbacks to past X-stories and I like the time we take to learn more about Xavier and some of his more dubious decisions. The biggest problem with this one is that is a transition book to get to the next phase of the story, mainly Rogue.
The new changes to Rogue and her power is intersting and I'm happy to see a Rogue who is now in control of her powers. Not that I don't think it's an element of her character, but her inability to contro

I do believe I read this in the original issues, but had forgotten about it, as much of it seemed pretty familiar to me. The bulk of the trade focuses on Rogue trying to make sense of the fact that her mind has been emptied of all of her absorbed personalities save one, her mother's, and Xavier's attempt to help her in the way that he never was able to before. Gambit comes along for the ride, and we are introduced to Danger, and experience the beginning of the new expression of Rogue's power. I' ...more
