I would be happy if there were a few less Avengers and X-Men books tying into the events of Avengers vs. X-Men. X-Men Legacy in particular is a series that doesn’t really “need” to act as an event tie-in. Issue #267 adds little to the greater conflict, instead depicting one continuous battle between Rogue’s squad and the Avengers B-team. But if nothing else, this issue serves as a solid character study for Rogue, who has a somewhat colorful history with the Avengers

Unfortunately, the rest of the Legacy group feels pretty much wasted in this issue. Gambit in particular seems to be the designated punching bag of AvX. Perhaps this is inevitable given the way Gage is framing these issues around individual characters, but a team book deserves a slightly more well-rounded focus. In all I would rate this book a 7/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep on marveling.
