David A.k.a. Legion is the son of Charles Xavier, how will he react when he learns of his fathers demise?

Is okay. It's nothing amazing, it's a bit messy at times. It's not bad, it's just nothing exciting.

Story and Script

I gotta say I didn't think I was going to like this as much as I did. Initially I was very excited about the series but as I saw all the reviews come in, I decided not to pick up the book. However when I went to my LCS today to pick up some comics, this was $1.99, so I thought "whatever, I'll give it a try".

The first few pages are extremely confusing, don't make much sense. However the book improves. David is pretty sympathetic, you gotta feel a bit sorry for him. His dad just abandoned him in the mountains and hasn't bothered to check in at all.

So I guess the writer achieved their goal of making me interested in the character. However did they achieve the goal of making it a good jump on point? Well sort of. There isn't a lot of references to continuity but the story in itself is a bit all over the place. They give you basic details you need to know.

The story jumps around a lot. It can get pretty confusing at times. The dialogue is pretty good to.


I honestly don't know what to tell you. It's an okay issue but the story jumps around a bit and can get confusing at times. I like the concept and may check this book out in the future. I haven't yet determined what I'm gonna do with this book.

But with a cover like that, and a character named Legion, my curiosity is highly piqued. It's also interesting to see how much the cover really tells you about Legion. It tells you that he's insane to some degree, and that he has multiple personalities. This could've been illustrated another way, sure, but this way is just so unique and demented it had me.The st...

    I really liked this first issue, it was published a few months ago but I just read it and I find it awesome. Retrospectively, the story of David Haller is an interesting way of connecting the worlds of two forgotten characters - blindfold and legion, and briefly Merzah the Mystic. Its a gracefully way to pay tribute to old characters and recognize their legacy on new storyplots. The action scenes inside Legion´s mind fit perfectly with his background and finally gave an oportunity to David to a...
