Marvel Legacy is coming, as Marvel spreads out what it started with ResurrXion by counting on nostalgia and classic plot lines to inspire new stories and try to appeal to both old and new readers. For X-Men Gold and X-Men Blue, this is going to be a double-down on the nostalgia stakes, after already bringing the classic feel with returning titles, or names harking back to classic formations, and returning to a focus on the kind of storytelling that had been missing from the X-titles for a while.
Well, for Marvel Legacy, X-Men Gold and X-Men Blue will be having its first major crossover, as the teams get brought together for Mojo Worldwide, written by Cullen Bunn and Marc Guggenheim and with art by Jorge Molina and Mike Mayhew, with covers by Art Adams.
And in fact, the plot revolves around Mojo, everyone’s favourite ratings obsessed pan-dimensional entertainment mogul, bringing a perfect storm of classic X-Men events to Earth for the merry mutants to get tangled up in. Like a vampire looking to suck the classics dry for every inch of entertainment value, Mojo will put the X-Men through events such as Inferno, The Asgardian Wars, and Days of Future Past all over again.
Hmm, an entertainment exec relying on nostalgia and past stories to garner positive feedback and success? That doesn’t seem metatextual at all.
Well, we can tell you the event definitely has stakes. Blood will be spilled, and quickly. And readers may find the victim a surprise.
