Legion is the most powerful and unstable mutant in the world, and son to Professor Charles Xavier. Now, following Professor X's tragic death, Legion will finally attempt to tame his fractured mind, conquer his inner demons and embrace his father's legacy!
First, Legion tries to help newly manifested mutant twins, exploited by a criminal cartel in Japan. But the twins have plans of their own, as do Legion's inner demons! Then, two new villains have begun plotting Legion's demise. But little does he know one of them is lurking within his own psyche, and the other is hiding among the X-Men themselves! Legion infiltrates the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning - but when he learns the demon in his brain has a horrifyingly familiar face, can he and the X-Men help one another overcome it?
Simon Spurrier was born in 1981. Since 2001 he's become a major writer for the UK's foremost adult comic 2000AD, and in recent years has published multiple projects through U.S. giants such as Marvel (X-Men Legacy, Wolverine), D.C., Avatar Press, Dark Horse and Image.
He began his career as a prose writer in 2003 with a novelisation of the videogame Fire Warrior. He subsequently produced work-for-hire genre novels for BL Publishing and Abaddon Press.
In late 2007 Spurrier published his first creator-owned novel, Contract, through Hodder Headline. This was followed in 2011 by A Serpent Uncoiled.
Spurrier was born in Somewhere-You've-Never-Heard-Of, grew up in the heartlands of Nowhere-Terribly-Interesting, and lives today in North London. He spends much of his time in quiet cafes and pubs, where he exerts an unwanted cosmic magnetism upon any loud or malodorous patrons who should enter.
