It’s not exactly a dream team, and initially I’m so uninterested in my collection of ‘heroes’ that when one of them (the car-owning lady) is kidnapped by an enemy I don’t even bother rescuing her. Go ahead and keep her, I shrug. I can steal a car if I need one.
But a few hours and several new recruits later, another member of my team is kidnapped, and this time I fly into an absolute rage. This is another team member who owns a car, but it’s an extremely fast car because he’s a getaway driver. He has a skill that prevents police drones from chasing him while he’s driving, and another skill that forces every car in his path off the road, parting traffic like the Red Sea.

I like this guy a lot, and I like playing as him, and the thought of some enemy stealing him from me is absolutely unacceptable. That’s when I realise Legion’s play-as-anyone system is actually working for me, and that I’ve gotten invested in it. It just took a while to assemble a team of anyones I actually cared about.
