    8 years isn’t particularly long.
    Avengers was on 675 at the start of No Surrender. With this weekly and the current Aaron Avengers, it’ll have done nearly 40+ issues since.
    That’s all I meant - maybe it’s a conscious decision so that Avengers hits 1000 quicker than some other titles.

    Any insight as to whether the Hickman X-Line will retain any Legacy Numbering?

    Or is this another "Fresh Start" with no nod at all to anything from before?

    We won't know until the preview for X-Men #1 is released online the day after Powers of X #6 is in the shops. Logically, X-Men, New Mutants, X-Force and Excalibur should all have dual numbering... but it depends if they even use the Fresh Start trade dress, instead of a special X-Men one. House and Powers don't use the standard trade dress after all.

    Are there different Legacy numberings for Uncanny X-Men (1963) and plain old X-Men (1991)? With Hickman's upcoming run being adjective free, which would be the better count to use?

    Yes there are (though Adjectiveless hasn't been used in Legacy or Fresh Start yet, as X-Men Gold and Blue were the current books at the time, and then we only had Uncanny), and I'd go with Adjectiveless. Because they could potentially launch a book called Uncanny X-Men later on. Here's how it would work:

    https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/X-Men_Vol_2 X-Men 1991 #1-113
    https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/New_X-Men_Vol_1 New X-Men #114-156
    X-Men 2004 #157-207
    https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/X-Men:_Legacy_Vol_1 X-Men Legacy #208-275
    https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/X-Men:_Legacy_Vol_2 X-Men Legacy #1-24
    X-Men Legacy #300
    https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/X-Men_Vol_4 X-Men 2013 #1-26 (LGY #301-326)

    That would make the new #1 LGY #327. Or 347 if you add the 20 issues of Extraordinary X-Men to it.

    FYI - King Thor #1 (limited series wrapping up Aaron's Thor saga) is Legacy-numbered to #723.

    PS - Digifiend - Weird that X-Men would count Vol 4, but not vol 3… but I kinda get it. Brain hurts.

    I discounted vol 3 as it completely overlaps Legacy. Same reason Captain America only counts Sam Wilson and not Steve Rogers from ANAD.

    The ultimate in legacy numbering would be a second issue of this. Of course, it's given a number 1, but a LGY2 would be appropriate.

    There's been a few that came close - the most extreme example being Unstoppable Wasp vol 2 #1, which was LGY #009.

    Thanks Digifiend - makes sense.

    One of my favorite confusing Legacy Number mess-ups goes way back to 1968 and 1973:

    Strange Tales vol, 1 (starring Dr Strange) ends at #168, and then becomes Dr Strange, vol 1 #169 the following month. (So far so good, per most 1968 title conversions)

    5-1/2 years later, a new Brother Voodoo series launches… as Strange Tales. vol, 1 #169.
    Now THAT makes sense! (!)

    That happened in Marvel Legacy too. Tales of Suspense relaunched as a mini starring Hawkeye and Winter Soldier. It's numbering picked up from the original. Which means the 99 TOS issues were counted twice, as Captain America started at issue 100.

    Incidentally, Hulk's first six issues from 1962 aren't counted in it's numbering either, because the 1968 Incredible Hulk series is actually a renamed Tales to Astonish and thus has much higher numbering.
