Legion of X #8

Post by Blackcyclops » 14 Dec 2022, 15:17

HOW DOES SPURRIER DO IT EVERY MONTH????? Ugh! I love this book
So on one hand we have the existence of a being who can reset the entire timeline, destroying everything…, and on the other hand we have a few mind wipes and some gaslighting. You're right, totally evenly weighted.

I think this felt like the shortest issue of the title so far but that’s not a critique, I really enjoyed this.

Blindfold and Xavier? Loved that scene. Get him, Ruth. GET HIM.

There are a lot of momentous things going on in this book that deserve discussion but really I just wanted to pop in and give Spurrier props for the callback to Pixie's epic 'Goth as Hell' line :lol:
Best Comics of Week 7

X-titles: Wolverine #43 by Victor LaValle (2), Benjamin Percy (3) and Geoff Shaw (1)
Non-X titles: Amazing Spider-Man #43 by Zeb Wells (2) and John Romita Jr (2)

In parentheses number of times creator had best comic this year

Honestly, I’ve said this before but the difference between an American writer and a British writer in control of voices like Banshee, Pixie, Legion and Chamber? Ugh. Don’t get me wrong, you can tell most writers have done their homework with the accents, but when it’s someone like Spurrier or Gillen writing them, it just hits differently, ESPECIALLY Legion’s Scottish accent.

Honestly though, I freaking LOVED Blindfold telling Xavier off here, because she has several many valid points.

Well I was under the impression that Moira engineered his meeting with Gabrielle Haller in order to create Legion? I assume as Xavier read her mind he would have been aware he may have a child with Gabrielle?

Here it seems he denies ever knowing he had a son but do think Blindfold had a a lot of good points, why did he never really try to connect with him or train him when he found out he existed in the first place was he too busy?
