Anyone else kind of excited for Legion?

So, this is probably pure nostalgia but when I saw that Legion will be joining the fight I got a little excited. 
 
Caveat, the only Legion story I've read was "Legion Quest". This is the first story arc I had to go to cons to pick up the books, so I guess I'm tainted by memories on this one (probably why I actually dig the Onslaught Saga - the story, not the art or all the blasted "tie-ins"). 
 
So while I go zip over to the Legion page here to do some research, what are your thoughts on the demented love child's return? Does he redeem himself? Does he leave and fight X-Man in a battle of the Omegas? Does he hate Scott for seemingly usurping Charles?

@Tyleski: I am excited to see Magneto fight as well.  Imagine Apoc. and Exodus joining the brawl.

Who knows, maybe Legion will join the X-Men in the future. Since Magneto could.

@ComicMan24: X-Man, Magneto and Legion. What a powerful team up.  
Boy, Apocalypse is in trouble.

This was an excellent decision. =) Exodus should definitely join the fight too. That would we an interesting team-up.

I feel like he's being set up to do something anti-climactic, considering Hope's supposed to be the most powerful player on the board.

Let's be real, is there enough time to jam all of this in before the end of the crossover? I think not. 
 
By the way, this may have been covered somewhere else, but wouldn't it be better to have a stand alone issue of the modified X-Force team in the future and have the "present day" X-Men dealing with their threat? Or is this a little too similar to "Messiah War", "Cable, vol 3", etc?

Exodus is on a pilgrimage. He won´t be around.

It was a joke. Have you read AOA?

@Edamame:  Yes I read all of AOA and love it, but I believe that was a moment when Legion was still young reckless and way out of control, now his just 'immature' like before but without the reckless his more willing to do the right thing like in the past

It was a 'blink & you've missed it' cameo.  I don't know why they bothered to resurrect Legion.  They obviously don't know what to do with him.  No-one's even bothered to explain HOW he's come back from the dead or why he has more personalities in his head than there are mutants left on Earth-616.  Such a waste.

I completely agree. Legion only was in the comics for like 5 pages.  He only took down two Nimrods. It was rather preposterous.  
 
I feel like the first half of Second Coming was the better part. The only good part of the last half of Second Coming was the last X-Force issue. My opinion though.

They should turn him into like Hope's rival/arch nemesis or something.

I was thinking of Hope because they both have a vast amount of powers and everybody, including Xavier, treats her like a messiah and treat him like a criminal/weapon

Did Legion run off or flee after destroying those two Nimrods or was what happened with him next never addressed?

I don't think that this was addressed. We have never seen him since.
