Exclusive Preview: X-Men Legends #5

In 1991, the Mutant Genesis brought the original 5 X-Men back to the core team. That left the door open for a new mutant team to debut in X-Factor #71: Havok, Polaris, Quicksilver, Multiple Man, Wolfsbane, and Strong Guy. Writer Peter David guided this group of misfits through some of their most memorable stories. And now, thanks to the X-Men Legends ongoing series, David is getting a second chance to revisit this era.
