The NZA Posted December 5, 2009 Share Posted December 5, 2009 we had a thread for this & the Madrox noir mini-series, im assuming it was lost in the crash? anyway. You remember after House of M when all the mutant books were in "Decimation" and basically crap again? And how after Messiah Complex started off, they (mostly) got a lot more readable? Yeah, at both points, X-Factor stood out among the crowd, and it did it with a cast most of us didn't give a fuck about ten years back with the same writer (jumbie excluded). You've got noir-fixated Madrox, the multiple man (who sent his dupes out years ago to try almost every job/path, and has since had decision-making issues due to knowing where most paths lead, etc), Siryn (the late Banshee's daughter/Deadpool's ex, heh), a de-powered Rictor, Strong Guy (way more fun/interesting than i gave him credit for with his name and all), and a few since....particularly Layla, the girl who "knows things" - sort of. Honestly, the book had some really shocking moments earlier this year with where it took the team's drama, really stand-out work from David despite somewhat spotty art off and on for a while now. Issue # 50 just came out & revealed a lot as well, was looking for more people to talk to about what David's doing with various x-men continuity. Seriously, if x-men was written more like this, people'd be all over it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
