    In this volume, Professor X confronts his step-brother (Cain Marko a.k.a. the Juggernaut) then follows Rogue to Australia with Gambit in tow (where they confront a band of Shi'ar pirates and Danger) and then, finally, goes up against Exodus and his Acolytes single-handedly. That's a lot of plot for one book but I really enjoyed it, despite the presence of one of my least favourite X-Men (Gambit... Man, I hate that guy).

    X-Men Legacy: Salvage was an utterly random comic I picked up. Now the overall threads of the story are slightly confusing to me, as I rarely follow the "approved continuity" of whatever arc a comic is following. That being said, I did like this random volume. The first story, before the "main" arc begins, with Xavier running into Juggernaut, was really well done. I enjoyed it and the ending. It's rather a shame there wasn't more to it.

She is being helped by Mystique, who is inside her (not sure what that's all about), fighting some Shi'ar pirates-while Professor X, Gambit and a sentient and mobile Danger Room try to help. A bit out there, but not bad. The Shi'ar pirates were rather amusing. A nice single volume. It starts in the middle of a major arc, so that sucked. But I am interested to see the rest so might hunt down the other parts of this story.

    Charles Xavier's quest to rebuild his memory and reinvent himself takes him to the Australian outback where Rogue has secluded herself, thinking the solitude will do her good, after the farce that was the M-Day. Only she's not alone, Danger, the physical embodiment of the X-men danger room invades her solitude and puts her through a series of simulations in which she recreates people and places that Rogue has a traumatic association to, all this to push Rogue towards a personal crisis.

Maybe Danger knows Charles is coming, maybe she doesn't, but this "personal crisis" draws Charles, but not him alone, alongside Gambit, his muscle, Charles finds a group of Shi'ar Salvagers who intend to enslave Danger. They too get immersed in Dangers holographic projections. Charles, genius that he is, figures what to do and restores Danger, but the Shi'ar Salvagers have ideas of their own, they figure since there's a bounty on Charles' head they might as well capture him too. Only it's not so easy. This was another great volume from Mike Carey and Crew. I like how the series is shaping up to a bit more cerebral.

    This was better than the last volume at least. With reading the more recent Rogue comics by Kelly Thompson you can see that something changed as far as her abilities compared to how she was. Well that happens in this book. Cool. However there was more mental fights, mindscapes and altering reality in this book. Man, Carey must love this stuff. Unfortunately, too much of this kind of stuff for me will drag down a book. But again, at least this was better than the last book.

    This review is meant to reflect my feelings on Mike Carey's writing on the X-Men books overall. I didn't become aware of him at all, really, until the lead-ins to the Messiah Complex crossover. During that, and especially since, he's shown that above all other X-Men writers, he alone seems to be up to the task of remembering their history, whether for good or bad, and embracing it and incorporating it into his books, what used to be known as "continuity", which sees to be a four-letter word at t This review is meant to reflect my feelings on Mike Carey's writing on the X-Men books overall. I didn't become aware of him at all, really, until the lead-ins to the Messiah Complex crossover. During that, and especially since, he's shown that above all other X-Men writers, he alone seems to be up to the task of remembering their history, whether for good or bad, and embracing it and incorporating it into his books, what used to be known as "continuity", which sees to be a four-letter word at times in modern comics. If he's using a character, no matter how obscure, he seems to make it a point to know their history, to know how they would react to a situation, or, more specifically, another character. Balancing this in books notorious for having many characters is a challenge, but he's pulled it off. He's also a prime example of the axiom that there are no bad characters, just character with bad writers. He's taken characters that to many writers are boring, troublesome, or allegedly one-note, and turned them into something serious and interesting. Xavier, Danger, Exodus, Rogue, and (most personally for me) Gambit have all benefited from Carey's attention to them, and they all come out of X-Men Legacy as much richer characters. I mentioned before how he has an eye for the histories of this franchise, and in Legacy, he's never had a better chance to show this off. Since the series is supposed to represent the rebuilding of Xavier's shattered mind, we're often taken into his newly restored memories. There are several pages that either feature quick panels or just word balloons lifted straight out of older comics. I immediately jumped on phrases like, "Why does everyone say my name like it means 'Shut up'?" (Jubilee) and "There's very little written about you" (Bishop to Gambit) from the early-90's X-Men books, without footnotes, yet there were many more equally obscure ones that I didn't catch that I'm sure others did. Carey isn't concerned with having everything new-reader accessible, but it also doesn't detract from the story. For my money, he has a fan in me for being one of the best writers to handle Gambit ever, and he apparently isn't finished with him yet. I think he wants to "fix" Gambit much liked he fixed Rogue and Xavier, and I welcome it. I would also recommend checking out his Felix Castor novels, starting with "The Devil You Know".

I found myself conflicted throughout this saga: there was something about it that rubbed me the wrong way yet I was unable to stop reading it!

Perhaps it was the fact that large portions of this story arc are supplemented in other comics not included in this collection. Of course there were moments of gallantry and self-sacrifice, but always in the midst of a seemingly hurried narrative. I would only recommend this to diehard X-Men fans. And will Marvel *please* stop trying to make Rogue one of its top superheroes? They've been doing this for decades and it does not work. She is simply not that interesting! Adding and changing her powers, love interests, etc. is not moving the needle at all.

    Still with the random flashback panels, and I'm starting to get numb to the self-indulgence of it all. I like the Rogue storyline tho, and once in a while Carey comes up with a funny or profound line. But really I know I'm just catching up, biding my time until the next big "event" story that's coming in the X-verse. This feels like I'm just doing my chores - fun enough while I'm in it, but not that memorable (other than the changes in character that the final two issues create).

I guess, reading other reviews, I should say I too like the depth that Carey is adding to the Rogue and Gambit characters, tidying them up so they'll be ready for some high-speed drag racing when someone else wants to put them into action. It'd be nice if Xavier wasn't being treated as a blank slate so you can do whatever you like with him.

    This might be my favorite of Mike Carry’s X-Men Legacy collections so far. What we get is three layers of awesome. For starters, remember Danger Room (the actual character) from Astonishing X-Men? She’s back! Remember Rogue? She’s back. Remember Gambit? Back!! And they all come together in a landmark, character defining moment! Then, the Charles Xavier odyssey that’s been going on this whole run winds down to it’s conclusion.

Cary’s Legacy run has been the most fascinating Xavier character study so far. He’s been through the ringer, undergoing tremendous struggles and personal growth. It’s been a blast to watch. Lastly... in the final moments, the greater Marvel universe (which we sometimes forget about when reading X books) rears it’s head. Everything, to include the consequences of Secret Invasion, is about to come together. I really love this run. Once again, Scot Eaton’s pencil work is impeccable. 00s X-Men really is the shit.

    More forced character moments as Xavier seeks out Juggernaut, Danger tracks down Rogue, and Gambit...is there. Nothing about this series feels organic. Nothing about it feels creative. It moves characters around but, for a series primarily focused on Charles Xavier, it doesn't give us any new insights to his character, it just retcons his history with dull minutae that doesn't change anything. At least Brubaker's Deadly Genesis added a new dimension to him.

    Impressive! I really loved this story arc ! I could really relate for the first time with one of the characters. Here being rogue . I suffer from ocd and that is exactly how it feels in my head. I never thought I would find an analogy of my life in a comic book ! As for the story really loved it! Really loved those psychological part ! Incredible how marvel portraits the univers of the mind. The illustrations were really good! Overall, excellent!

    Despite Rogue and Gambit being in plenty of this book, and some interesting stuff about Danger (as in Danger Room after gaining sentience and then having her free will and years of good memories tampered with), this volume is meh overall.

    I didn't really care for this, and I'm not really sure what the point is for the Legacy series...I'm guessing it is to deal with loose ends and things that are laying around untold or unresolved in the X-Men world. Positives: Gambit and Rogue, who I was always so happy to see in the cartoon in the early-mid 90s, yet almost never seem to be in the comic versions.

Gambit is a great character potential-wise and if they gave someone with talent the reins of him and his own title, I think his popularity would soar. So giving him any book time is great in my eyes. Rogue is also one who could be a lot more with better work done on her, and I suppose that I should be happier with this book in that regard. However, the negatives of this book include a pointless story about Charles and his half-brother Juggernaut, as well as his involvement with the Acolytes and what happens there. However, I don't know much back story there so it might actually be very cool for other people. The story of Danger, the Danger Room manifested as a living Robot intelligence is cool, and I recall reading the story where she first gains sentience (Joss Whedon's Astonishing X-Men) so that was nice I suppose. All in all though, just a bit of a let down. Still some decent stuff, as well as the interesting final panel with the arrival of Norman Osborn....duh duh DUH!

    OK, so I don't know exactly where Legacy is going these days. It only seems to be around as a series to revise and sort out all the side stories that have been dangling around in the X-universe for years. Sorting out Professor X. Mr. Sinister.

    I want to like this more than I do. I'm enjoying all the flashbacks to past X-stories and I like the time we take to learn more about Xavier and some of his more dubious decisions. The biggest problem with this one is that is a transition book to get to the next phase of the story, mainly Rogue. The new changes to Rogue and her power is intersting and I'm happy to see a Rogue who is now in control of her powers.

    I do believe I read this in the original issues, but had forgotten about it, as much of it seemed pretty familiar to me. The bulk of the trade focuses on Rogue trying to make sense of the fact that her mind has been emptied of all of her absorbed personalities save one, her mother's, and Xavier's attempt to help her in the way that he never was able to before. Gambit comes along for the ride, and we are introduced to Danger, and experience the beginning of the new expression of Rogue's power.

    Hmm. Well, to be honest, I only started reading this title because I liked the trade "Original Sin," and the only reason I'm continuing to read the title is because I know one of my favorite characters, Magneto, eventually plays a big role in the title. So now I'm stuck slogging through the first few trades, hoping for a good Mags payoff in the end. This trade was okay.

    Xavier continues his tour, trying to solve all the troubles he left behind, trying to make up for the promises he never fulfilled. It is a nice read, quite quick, as all marvel comics I come across these days are, but it stands out, as the theme allows, and actually makes me want to keep buying the series.

    I enjoyed the prologue with Professor X confronting Juggernaut (following the events of Fear Itself, I guess), but where X-men Legacy continues to lose me is the focus on all the extended sci-fi stuff. I suppose I might have enjoyed the parallel stories of Danger undergoing an awakening while Rogue revisits her past. The focus on the space pirate bounty hunters-- another crew of snide Shi'ar and assorted aliens-- was more than I cared for, though.

    Not a bad ending to what was an interesting superhero series that's not done often, that of a quiet character study. I'd recommend it without reservations, except for the parts that are so heavy on X-Men continuity. Which are many, many parts. So not necessarily for everybody. But still good stuff.

    219 deals with Xavier confronting Juggernaut after he accepted the full power of cytorak and that means a destroying killing machine. 220-224 is the 5part Salvage story.

    This graphic novel is surprisingly good. Only downside being the first part featuring Juggernaut. Just a little sick of that character. Major developments include Rogue's powers finally fixed and Danger becoming a good guy. This graphic novel is surprisingly good. Only downside being the first part featuring Juggernaut.
