2-Line Reviews: Avengers Academy #8, X-Factor #214, and X-Men Legacy #244

A combination of my being super busy and last week's releases not having much for me to comment on has made it so that my reviewing these issues in any depth would be severely
lackluster. My solution: Making brief reviews comprised only of two sentences.

Avengers Academy #8

Writer: Christos Gage
Artist: Mike McKone

Having the AA hunt down established villains who have hurt someone in the AA is already repetitive and it's only the second time. I love that Tygra basically went on Oprah this issue.

X-Factor #214
Writer: Peter David
Artist: Emanuela Lupacchino

This issue was solely about Darwin in a Western; two things I have severe dislike for. Unsurprisingly, I did not read any further after finding out this.

X-Men Legacy #244

Writer: Mike Carey
Artist: Harvey Tolibao

Blindfold was at times speaking too normally this issue. Why does every weird/different/antagonistic character have to eventually be watered down to boringly normal traits?

You should have mentioned in the review of X-Men:Legacy that,because of Tolibao's being on the art duties,Rogue's scarf was flowing everywhere(just like Psylocke's waist-band in her mini-series)!

Blindfold makes for a pissy farty superheroine, doesn't she?! The Sheila doesn't even talk sense!
Here's hoping she doesn't play any sort of a role in Age of X, as this story eludes.
