Wear the Grudge Like a Crown Part One
Is there a reason why other writers write Bendis’ Uncanny X-Men, better than he does? Is it because he has to give them depth and such, and others get to just use their powers? Because this is the third time I’ve seen this team, working together to great effect.
Really enjoy Spurrier’s low build up for David and Blindfold’s relationship.
Davidson draws a nice Magik.
David fighting the team, single handily is pretty impressive.
The Magneto confrontation is my favorite. Magneto recognizing that this is a moment. Him verses his best friend’s son.
By the time he is done monologing, David has removed his helmet, match up over.
Magik, I feel, wouldn’t call a fellow woman, a little loser slut.
But she did and I know she will. It seems harsh, but it isn’t like they are friends, or that they have even met before.
Some very dramatic moments for Illyana here.
Nice to have Blindfold get a win over the Cuckoos, even if it was due to a power boost. Definitely has an asterisk next to it.
How great and well paced is the Cyclops vs. Legion fight set up? A god has decided to turn off his powers to fight a regular guy. That has always gone well in the past.
I will let you read this, I am very excited to read the next issue. An old school punch fight. I like Scott stating that he is a trained martial artist.
And it started to rain, next issue should be beautiful.
For those who don’t want to follow Battle of the Atom, either because it is an event or what have you, Legacy is the ideal book for you. Either stand alone issues, or small two part stories.
