With the bulk of Marvel NOW! relaunch books is on the horizon for November, and Marvel Comics kicks off the celebration on a special press conference call for "X-Men Legacy" with oncoming writer Si Spurrier and series editor Daniel Ketchum. Spurrier, along with artist Tan Eng Huat, relaunch the series next month with a heavy focus on Professor Xavier's incredibly powerful son, Legion, and explore the aftereffects of Xavier's death on one of the world's most powerful mutants.
"It's kind of the black sheep of the X-Men family," said Spurrier, emphasizing the focus on David Haller (AKA Legion) and following him in his quest to find his place in the world now that his father is dead. "Is he going to step up and try to fill his father's shoes? Is he going to go in the completely opposite direction? At the same time, how are the X-Men going to feel about this?"
