Heh, look a little closer. Those are birds, not tire treds. Though in your defense, I thought it was that metal grate stuff at first.

Why oh why am I still picking this book up? The latest issue rehashed the whole Rogue wanting to be who she wants to & control her life!!!! Seriously wtf as I said before it had so much potential becoming a team book of sorts again post Schisim and even during AVX but oh no that couldn't last could it?

Even then, I'd still take this rehashed story than the Incredible Rogue "tie-ins" stories we suffered through. I love Gage but I will not miss the book after 275.

I completely agree about the longevity of this book. There isn't much to be excited about in the X-World in the aftermath of AvX

Ugh...can they make Rogue any less sympathetic? They turned her into a self involved, insecure mutant-the total opposite of how Claremont wrote her. I hope she's redemed in Uncanny Avengers.

Truthfully I think that was what they were trying to do in the issue. Acknowledging she has been a moaning character but the Claremont character is still there IMO.

I hope so! I'm old enough to remember her first joining the team as a brash 17 year old way back in the early eighties! I want to see the old Rogue back. She was one of the most admirable characters IMO.

Yeesh i can't believe they decided to dedicate the final issue of Legacy of this numbering to be about a long winded speech between Rogue and Mimic.....

It would have been nice to see it focus on Legion in the aftermath of Xavier's death which could have been a lead in to the new #1. Also I hope they use this comic as a way of dealing with legacy of characters in terms of storyline. A singular character with supporting cast is good but it needs to rotate look what happened when Rogue took over. Truthfully it should have ended with her powers being resolved.

I'm trying to remember... when was her powers resolved? Wasn't that at the end of the Xavier run?

I liked the focus she got after Xavier, when she went from "my life is so sad" to being the mentor of the next generation. It showed character growth and her moving on with her life, and the Legacy bit still fit due to her training Xavier's legacy (the children). It's after that when she should have finished up. Post Age of X is when Legion should have been a more primary focus. It started that way and that arc or two was fantastic. If not Legion, then show Frenzy and the legacy the X-Men leave on the villains they've changed. But instead, it went back to Rogue for the next year or two and just dragged on.

What I would have liked to have see:

Xavier, the Rogue, then Legion, then Rachel (Jean's legacy once they went to the Jean Grey Academy).

Then if we HAD to have a relaunch... make it Cyclops centric with it dealing his being Xavier's first student and his realizing what he did in AvX, and atoning for it (much as Xavier did during his run).

Yeah. He was finally able to sort out her psyche and allow her powers to grow the way the were meant to.

Wow. After 275 issues and over 20 years, it all ends with Rogue. They couldnt even try to incorporate more X-men into the final issue
