Now, I never referred to it as Volume Two as Volume One started with issue 208 so there was no need to clarify which volume of the title it was but this has been Volume Two of X-Men Legacy.
Of the 24 issues, I own 14 of the issues – 1, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 11, 14, 16, 17, 18, 19, 21, 22 and 14. On my Wishlist are two issues – 20 and 23, both of which are due to Hastings not having my comics in.
The reason I own so many of these is how often Magik showed up in this series. A few of them are due to Kitty being there for Illyana being part of Cyclops’ Uncanny team helped keep her involved.
There have been some great storylines in this series, such as Prodigal, Invasive Exotic, Hope and Glory, Wear the Grudge Like a Crown and the concluding storyline.
This series was written by the mastermind that is Simon Spurrier. Along the way, he had some excellent artist on board.
1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9, 11, 13, 14, 15, 19, 20, 23, 24 – Tan Eng Huat
4, 5, 6 – Jorge Molina
10, 11, 12, 16 – Paul Davidson
17, 18, 21, 22 – Khoi Pham
My favorite would have to be the Wear the Grudge Like a Crown.
Some might have dismissed the title as a solo David Haller title or as a satellite title but it tied into and used the current titles’ continuity to both enhance and place this title.
This was also Blindfold’s title, as she was in each issue and was crucial to the overall story arc.
There will be an issue 300 of Legacy but issue 24 concluded this second volume. Spurrier does have a section of 300 that will involve his Legacy run but that is technically part of volume one with the renumbering.
I never thought you had read Spurrier X-men Legacy. Ok, Kitty has a cameo in #1 issue and Magik appears during arc with Cyclops but I always guessed that Spurrier style of narrative and dialogues don’t br your jam.
oh I started picking up the non-Magik issues as the trades were pretty great. Shame Spurrier isn’t doing more (that I know of) but that run of the title is one of the best runs in recent years.
I super wish that Spurrier was a Producer or Creative Consultant on the new Legion show, as that’s a super missed opportunity.
I would say though, that was pretty dismissive of the series when it was first announced. Usually we only get one kind of Legion story, mostly in New Mutants (and Legion Quest that gave us Age of Apocalypse) but Spurrier made David Haller such an interesting character.
Plus that Cyclops fight in the rain is so good!
