In a recent interview with CBR, Nicieza made some recommendations for some stories to read to familiarize oneself with Adam-X including X-Men vol. 2 #23 and #39, X-Force Annual #2, X-Force vol. 1 #29-30, and Captain Marvel vol. 3 #3. In addition, Nicieza explained his joy at being able to share this story:
I am very glad I was able to tell this story in almost exactly the way I had always planned. I knew who I wanted Adam to be, and I think this story will give readers a chance to see that. It’s a ‘big’ story that is also very intimate, sad, tragic and hopeful all at the same time. And it’s also got a tremendous amount of crunchy cool fun, as well!
X-Men Legends will take time each month to dig into the history of X-Men and work to resolve loose ends that may have been dormant for decades. X-Men Legends #1 will be available to read on February 17 with physical copies from local comic shops and digital copies from various retailers including comiXology (affiliate link). The art and main cover are from Brett Booth.
