Marvel Has Already Messed Up Legacy Numbers on X-Men…

When Marvel launched Marvel Legacy, they brought many titles back to their  ‘legacy’ numbering, with the issue number that would have been if the comic in question had never been relaunched. Then with Fresh Start, they relaunched them all again with new shiny #1s again. But the cover also included their legacy number in a small box. It was an attempt to appeal to both the collector and new readers attracted by a shiny new issue 1.

There have been a few hiccups along the way, with mini-series such as Avengers: No Road Home being counted as part of the ongoing series, seeing the Avengers ongoing comic jump ten points on its Legacy numbering as a result.

But the new Uncanny X-Men and the mini-series X-Men: War Of The Realms have a new trick – both having the same legacy number. That of Uncanny X-Men #635.

Take a look….
