Looks like a headache, but I do wanna read the BC stuff, so maybe picking up the Legacy launch book can sell me on picking up some regular books.

A couple of weeks late, but I picked up Legacy, which was my first Marvel (or DC) book in two or so years, give or take. Thoughts on each section:

- Opening w/Avengers 1 Million BC (the reason I initially got interested): I'm disappointed it seems they are going to exist to set up the modern MU's story. I'd much rather just have a freewheeling book about them doing their thing, because then it doesn't have to worry about continuity, which Marvel sucks at.

- Starbrand vs. Ghost Rider: Is that supposed to resembled GR 2099? What happened to Hickman's Starbrand (not that I cared about him, but has he been written away, or are we just forgetting him?) Anyway, that was all fine and good, the modern end of the BC story.

- Loki & the frost giants, w/giants fighting the alternate Big 3: I sure hope they can manage not to just start writing Loki as a villain again. So far they made sure to establish that he's not, but I'm wary. The Big 3 part was...meh. Cheap dialogue, lame fodder fight where the Falcon apparently hits as hard as She-Thor wielding Mjornir. Does not leave me excited about the Avengers.

- Cap page: This is the first I've heard of how they resolved the Hydra Cap thing - it was a doppleganger after all? OK, better than trying to make it stick as the real deal.

- Thor: Why does that old Asgardian die in space? Also, wow, Odinson has made abosolutely ZERO progress since I stopped reading.

- Mary Jane/Stark: Cool Wire reference I suppose, but not much to go on beyond that. I guess I didn't know Stark was in a coma.

- Deadpool: So he's just completely fucking immune to damage now, huh? Yawn.

- Strange/IF: I guess it'll be interesting to see them throw together the modern incarantions of the BC team, sure.

- Thing/Torch: OK, clearly Aaron had nothing to do with them other than let us know they exist. Hokey dialogue again.

- Black Panther Planet: Again, nothing much to o on, but at least it's an interesting concept.

- "Alpha Flight": Is that term now completely disconnected from the super-team?

- Wolverine: Well he was bound to come back sooner or later, and I don't have any beef with that. No complaints with that segment, but Aaron has always been best in the superhero world when writing him.

Overall: Not impressed, but I'd still consider picking up a One Million B.C. book and maybe seeing what happens with Wolverine. Black Panther maybe, too. Aaron has continued to slide as a writer, though, which is a shame if not a surprise.

I just read Legacy one despite having it for a few weeks already.  Can't lie I was surprised to see Logan and happy for it.  Makes me wonder what will they do with Old Man Logan now?  A Younger crotchety bastard meets an older Crotchety Bastard.
