CBR Review: X-Men Legacy #240

I recently reviewed X-Men Legacy #240 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Maybe X-Men Legacy needs a big event after all. It’s not that this issue lacks direction, it’s that the direction given is dull and somewhat ludicrous, at least in execution. Rogue and Magneto acting as mentors to young mutants has a lot of possibilities based on their past history, Magneto’s desire to prove himself, and Rogue’s longtime growth into one of the most mature and dependable members of the X-Men. What’s in this issue is passive heroes and a bad idea for a threat meant to replace Magneto and his comrades with mutants more united now than ever. Ostensibly, there’s a focus and clear direction to the title, it simply doesn’t show up in this month’s issue."
