Verdict - 2.7

- Like X-Men: Legacy #1 - Prodigal I'm not impressed with the cover, and for some reason I disliked the art even more. Maybe its because in this issue the story again isn't that great. I will say that the flow of this issue is a little better you don't bounce around as much, or at least when you go into Legion's head you know where you are now. We do discover that Legion has been out of control since last issue and his multiple personalities have been going across China causing destruction. Once Legion gains control we are given a new character, or should I say lack of character. It's basically two eyes that destroy a deer to form a body. The dialogue in the issue was something I didn't care for either, even existing characters seemed out of place. I also wasn't a fan that the writer decided every page needed an expletive somewhere. I really hope this series turns around, I really love the X-Men and Legion always seemed like an interesting character but right now this book seems all over the place.
