    When ‘X-Men Legacy’ #18 came to a close, Legion had both won and lost everything he was trying for. On the one hand, he had tricked Blindfold’s brother into revealing himself and was able to defeat him. On the other, he really ticked off Cylops and his crew and in the process, not only lost […]

    And this, ladies and gentlemen, is how you end a series. As sad as I am to see this iteration of Carol Danvers’ comic series end (a reboot is coming soon), it’s going out by playing on all the strengths its had.  And trust me, there were weaknesses.  (I gave the previous issue zero out […]
