Louise And Walter Simonson Return To Their X-Factor Run In X-Men Legends #3


Recommended Posts

Legendary creators Louise Simonson and Walter Simonson will be returning to the X-Men franchise this April in X-MEN LEGENDS #3. The pair will be teaming up for an all-new, in-continuity story set during their groundbreaking run on X-Factor— notable for introducing one of the X-Men’s greatest villains, Apocalypse, and boldly transforming Angel into the metal-winged Archangel.

Starring the original X-Men now defending the world as the mutant team X-Factor, X-MEN LEGENDS #3 will take place just before X-Factor #43. Having defeated Apocalypse, X-Factor now uses his mysterious sentient spaceship Ship as their base of operations. But when Ship begins to malfunction, they’ll realize Apocalypse’s true plans are just beginning to unfold. Don’t miss a rematch decades-in-the-making when the full breadth of this iconic villain’s original motives are finally revealed!

X-MEN LEGENDS will be a title like no other. Revisiting key runs throughout X-Men history, X-MEN LEGENDS will feature other greats such as Chris Claremont, Fabian Nicieza, Larry Hama, Peter David, and more returning to the X-Men mythos to tie up loose ends, resolve longstanding plot danglers, and uncover long hidden truths that will shake up the past, present, and future of Marvel’s mutant super heroes.

Launching in February with a story by Fabian Nicieza and Brett Booth that will finally resolve the famous “third Summers brother” mystery, X-MEN LEGENDS will reshape X-Men history as we know it! Don’t miss the original X-Factor’s grand return when X-MEN LEGENDS #3 hits stands in April!

This should be an interesting read, I assume the third summers brother they are referring to is Vulcan. A very underrated character.

No, the possible third summers brother hinted at here is Adam X-Terme. Vulcan wasn't created until roughly a Decade after Nicieza's run by Brubaker.

LOL Is there continuity anymore? It this point, what does it matter about finishing up old storylines from 30 years ago.

a new x-factor story from the Simonsons should be fun, regardless of continuity. 

Will be interested to see what Larry Hama comes up with, along with Peter David.  I used to be a huge Claremont fan but feels like he lost his touch years ago... but who knows, maybe this will be a return to form for him.

Claremont has lost his touch but can still do good especially when he doesn't have to really worry about current community. So something like this would probably be right up his street

Blue beast in a suit...a bit strange....I like the original x-factor #1 cover as-is. 

That's probably the loose end they're tieing up in this issue. We all wondered why Beast stopped wearing an X-Factor costume when his fur returned. I definitely had my theories, but now we'll know for sure!
