Legendary creators Louise Simonson and Walter Simonson will be returning to the X-Men franchise this April in X-MEN LEGENDS #3!

Having defeated Apocalypse, X-Factor now uses his mysterious sentient spaceship Ship as their base of operations. But when Ship begins to malfunction, they’ll realize Apocalypse’s true plans are just beginning to unfold. Don’t miss a rematch decades-in-the-making when the full breadth of this iconic villain’s original motives are finally revealed!
