X-Men: Legacy #216 Review: Prelude to Original Sin

X-Men: Legacy #216 coverX-Men: Legacy #216
Writer: Mike Carey
Penciler: Phil Briones; Inker: Scott Hanna

Wolverine cameos in photographs and brief memories that flash through Charles Xavier’s mind as Emma Frost and Scott Summers force Xavier to confront his past.

So much like ‘Wolverine: Origins’ #28, this issue serves as a precursor to the ‘Original Sins’ storyline rolling out in October.

From Marvel (Preview): “No X-Man goes back further with Charles Xavier than Cyclops, but the trust between them has been eroded by terrible revelations. Now Xavier wants Scott Summers to hold a mirror up to his own past and present. What he sees there could destroy both of them…” On sale September 24, 2008.

  1. I’ve been an X-Men comic fan since I was a kid in the 80’s. I know just about everything there is to know about them. I just wtchaed this Wolverine trailer and I have to say I think it looks like it might be pretty damn good! When I saw that first shorter teaser trailer a few months back, I had my worries. I thought it looked a lot like the Elektra movie with Jennifer Garner (that would NOT have been a good thing!) But this trailer here has me excited to see the film. We all have to accept that it’s not gonna ne exactly like the comics. Some things HAVE to be changed for Hollywood. The only thing that bothers me about when the movies do things differently, the comics ALWAYS change things to be like the movie. Thats the worst. Like after the first X-Men movie came out, they changed how Wolverine’s claws popped out to make it like the movie. There’s NO REASON to do that! So hopefully the comics will remain the comics and the movies will remail the movies. Slightly different, but still enjoyable (HOPEFULLY!)
