Cover/Solicit - 3/5

- Would I pick-up the comic based on the solicit/cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the solicit/cover portray what happens in the issue?

Art - 3/5

- Do I personally like this artist's style? Does the artist stay true to the characters appearance?

Colors/Ink/Lettering - 3/5

- Does the work blend well with the artist? Is the coloring/inking enjoyable and easy to distinguish what's happening? Can I easily read the lettering?

Layout/Flow - 4/5

- Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?

Story - 2/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story? How well did the issue further develop the characters? Did I enjoy reading the issue?



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.
