    It's a wide range of stuff written by different people. The quality will therefore necessarily vary depending on who the author is and how their stuff appeals to you. The books I'm reading have been great, but they were great before (otherwise, I wouldn't be reading them). I do see some reviews that have found the legacy arcs of other books to be an improvement and a more energetic direction, but I can't say if that's true linewide.

    It's pretty much the same as Marvel has ever been.

    The Legacy work for Spidey and X-Men are OK.

    Hard question.

    Overall I think marvel needed this even though the quality and originality are not yet at the ideal point. Overall, I think it's good, but it's too soon to have a formed opinion since none of the big events that will mark this period began as the return of the Original Avengers after No Surrender or Jean's return with Phoenix Ressurection.

    The quality varies a lot from title to title while some are starting to get interesting and show potential others seem to weaken with every issue and others simply keep the same quality.

    For now we are in the post SE phase and much of what is happening revolves around this event so we can not say that Legacy really started because the true changes have not yet happened except for a few exceptions.

    I would say this is the most common case. Only Captain America went for a new direction but there is no feeling of difference from previous stage.

    More of the same, besides a handful of exceptions.

    So far, so good. It definitely seems like everyone involved is putting their best foot forward and doing some very strong work.

    This one is just the second I saw. And I don't think is a good indication.

    "Legacy" is specifically set up to not do anything new. The biggest changes involve returning characters to how they were. The mini-events are splitting Marvel back in to editorial families, similarly to the 90s.

    The really interesting stuff will be what Marvel does to replace all of the creators that DC is poaching. But, that is not going to be obvious until next summer.
    Current pull-file:
    -Blackbolt
    -Mister Miracle
    -Sword Quest
    -the Vision (Director's Cut)
    -WWE

    Look at the sales numbers. The problem with Marvel wasn't fixed.

    There are no sales numbers to look at on Legacy yet, outside of the one-shot in September, which was the #1 title that month and the biggest selling book of the year to date.

    And is Marvel's problem is that they lead the industry more months out of the year than not? That's not a "problem" any publisher would mind having.

    Legacy isn't meant to "fix" anything so much as reintroduce characters and elements that have been absent of late.

    I would ignore the early sales figures anyway. It will take time to win back some of the consumer base. Things will get back to "normal" eventually. Not that normal was all that great.
