    Been a decade and a half.

    The Xmen strike team made before the upcoming Xmen Messiah Complex event. Headed by Mike Carey(one of the writers for the MC event, X-Men Legacy) and Chris Bachalo(Generation X and Uncanny X-men Fame) this team featured Rogue as the Leader enlisted help of mutants Good and Bad in the wake of M-day. After the Blinded by the Light storyline, the Title would change to X-men Legacy where Professor Xavier would headline for a time before returning to Rogue.

    Rogue leading her own Suicide Squad

    Great team, great villains, and each character had their moments to shine
    Carey's run is way too underrated
    I really liked the art too (especially Bachalo's)

    I recently re-read Carey's epic and this was such an amazing story.

    Talk about a starting with a bang, and this was the first time that original enemies seemed like a real threat and not just a gimmick that would never be heard from again.

    I just wish the Children of The Vault were ORCHIS's X-Men and they were Krakoa's primary antagonist - it just makes logical sense!

    I've been meaning to read this, looks terrific.

    (A random nitpick, Cable & Deadpool has a few tie-in issues to around this arc, and from what I could tell it didn't do much for either that story or as it's own Cable & Deadpool story. Red Data / Fractured. Event tie-in books always read weird when I get to them in collections.)

    Carey's run does seem like an underrated gem. You hear people mention it from time to time, but I also know almost nothing about it, other than that it does well with Rogue. And I love this art from early in the run.

    Oh you gotta read it, I only picked it up because so many people recommended it and I never realized he has the second longest run in X-Men history (second to Claremont).


    It's good character work, especially for Gambit, Xavier, Magneto, and Rogue.

    The art throughout his run is amazing as well, we get Clay Mann doing some of the sexiest looking X-Men ever.

    Such a good line-up. I miss it. The full page panel of Rogue boarding the plane with everyone else behind her is one of my favorite X-moments in one of my favorite X-arcs. Carey and Bachalo really made a great team.

    I read this way after it was published and I have to agree it was a really solid run. I think Hickman improved on the CoTV but Carey laid the groundwork for sure.
    You brought back Wolverine

    Carey introducing my fave X-Men villains in Supernovas, immortalises him for me The action at the mansion between the Xmen and Beaubiers remains one of my fave brief skirmishes.
