Caught up with Adjectiveless and Legacy. Legacy has been completely run of the mill and pretty uninteresting with Christos Gage writing it. I've lost count of all the by-the-numbers misunderstandings leading to superheroes punching each other for what is basically no good reason. Also for a Rogue centric book, I'm really not a fan of the way Rogue inner monologues in this at all. She's very pining and brooding. Gotta say though, I was really starting to miss Mike Carey's intergalactic/interdimensional adventures and right on cue, Rogue gets whisked off to an alien planet. Too bad the sideplot here is by the numbers as well, with the two species warring for supremacy over one another.
Brian Wood taking over Adjectiveless though has been a huge surprise. I was kind of underwhelmed by Alpha and Omega last year, but this take on Storm's "Security Team" so far has been great. The dialog has been perfect, and it's great to see Storm butting heads with Scott and Colossus instead of just being whisked away on vampire adventures. Also lots of Pixie, Domino and Psylocke, more of my favorite X-chix, all with lots of great dialogue. Overall it kind of feels like mutant spy shit, but not in a violent/covert ops way like X-Force.
I swear I read somewhere that one or both of these series was ending soon. Regardless of how all the X-books shake out post-AvX, I really hope Brian Wood lands on an X-book and gets to continue a book with this tone. Alpha and Omega seemed like a cute idea that had to be stretched out to a 5 issue mini, but this current run seems like a pretty awesome, grand idea that might unfortunately get the ax too soon.
