X-Men Legacy #267

Writer: Christos Gage
Artist: Rafa Sandoval

What starts as a misunderstanding, quickly turns into an all-out battle when the Jean Grey School staff leaves neutrality behind, and Rogue goes rogue against the Avengers. The point this tie-in strongly drives is that the southern belle has taken Earth's Mightiest down before, and she can do it again now that her buttons have been pushed. It is great to finally see that the big guns are starting to come out on the X-Men side of the house to join the fight. After all she has been through, having Rogue in control of her abilities, even in tough situations is exciting, but it's not just her; Gambit and Kitty Pryde also show some great display of power themselves. Sandoval's pencils are quickly adapting to the characters, their surroundings, and situations, and are engaging and fun; now, if only he stopped drawing the giant belt pouches and elephantine boots, everything would be great.
