Regenesis hits X-Factor, but it’s not much of a new beginning really as X-Factor continue to deal with the fallout of the most recent storyline and Madrox’s death. I did like the revelation that it was Layla’s resurrection of Strong Guy which led to Madrox dying, in the original timeline where Guido was dead, the fight was different and Madrox survived, it explains a lot of Layla’s guilt, and was a cool exploration of her powers, the butterfly effect in action! I also really liked the discussion of Guido not having a soul, some cool bits there, especially the joke about not liking James Brown anymore. Wolverine’s guest-appearance didn’t really change much, he just stood there, but it’ll be interesting to see how the relationship between X-Factor and the Jean Grey School works going forward. Oh yeah and Havok and Polaris showed up, that’s a great idea, they should be a great fit on this book. Am I forgetting anything? Right! Of course Madrox isn’t actually dead, and is now in a reality involving evil Iron Men, should be fun. I do hope this issue being so reliant on previous ones didn’t scare away any new readers hopping on for the Regenesis, because this was good stuff.
