X-Men Legacy has had a weird history. It started as basically a book starring Charles Xavier. Then, it turned into a book starring Rogue. Then finally it was a book starring Xavier's son Legion.

So, naturally, the grand issue #300, the series finale, gives us a story... that's not about any of them.

The final issue )

BleedingCool.com has the updates as to thefllout of Avengers Vs. X-men (I am so tired of saying that) but this one may be a doozy (if not predictable).

SPOILERS BEHIND THE CUT.

Part two of my history of Galen DeMarco, continued from here.

Where we left off last time, partway through "Beyond the Call of Duty", DeMarco was making a spirited attempt at going where no woman has gone before. Here's how that worked out for her.

Roughly 22 pages of scans under the cut.

Dredd's reaction, and what happened next )

Still one of my very favourite characters. ♥

Continuing the "Did the Earth move for you." motif, the Science team of the X-Men resolve this conflict.... with a few different versions of Duex Ex Machina saving the day.

But again, you're not here for that. you are here for THIS!

Make mine MARVEL!

Edit: (Honestly, I swear this is written just for S_D in mind.)

I get lonely without it. )

Newsarama has the preview for #4 of this limited series/adventure (among others), and it looks like the ride is about to end soon.

Somehow the starfish has still managed to survive the awesomeness.

MINIONS! )

My love for Dr. Nemesis and his subconscious spouting starfish knows no bounds!

2 pages of love behind the cut (as we will reach max pages posted per new issue)

Hoooooooo!!!!! )

This week, the Age of X ended with the defeat of its motive force.

It also began in AoX: Universe #2, with the end of another legion's story: that of the mean and nasty fucked up Avengers and their run at Fortress X.

It's not hard to figure out if they took it down, or if they even lived, but the story is still a good one as alternate reality hero-to-antagonist recastings go.

It even manages to do a nice job of justifying its Cap's participation. )

(wow, back to back. That's lucky!)

And it's one where mutants are on the run, rather than the rise.

Those who live outside the force walls face more than humanity's Exonim (clever) legions and anti-mutant legislation; they face the government's elite mutant hunters.

Four men and two women, each with their own motivations to see mutant freedoms leashed.

Six very familiar faces broken by their world, they are what they are: the Avengers.

(After the Phoenix's blowup, no point in guessing what they're Avenging.. though I can see why someone suggested Freedom Force, instead. With a Ms. Marvel, even.)

And their story's to be told in the two-shot Age of X: Universe, whose first hasn't had the warmest critical reception. But that's to be expected, when it's a two-issue tie-in to an alternate reality event.

I liked this week's first enough to be awaiting April's second, though: Simon Spurrier's definitely had fun playing with established characters in a universe really foreign to them.

Jim McCann's AoX: Spidey backup, on the other hand, was a bit rote.. but Pete was exactly what you'd expect. )

Greetings True Believers!

I bring you scans from a fraking awesome X-Men one-shot. Second Comings Revelations: Blind Science.

It knocked my socks off. Two reasons. An amusing storyline and the fact that Doctor Nemesis is the shit. Seriously, he belongs in NEXTWAVE.

In this one-shot Dr. Kavita Rao, Madison Jeffries(Box) and Doctor Nemesis save the day....with SCIENCE!

Plus, nazi-dolphins.

earth-555 is one of many universes in the multiverse, home to a retake on Jim Shooter's New Universe.

However, this one's not quite the universe outside your door.

(by the by, these are taken from one six-issue mini, one ongoing six-issuer, and two one-shots.. with about 7 pages at most from any one issue, and they all cap out around 21.

National, political, and technological statuses, for example? Very different.  )
