Another enjoyable issue of X-Factor, this arc is really allowing PAD to play up the humour and these piss-takes of ‘real life superheroes’ like Phoenix Jones or whoever are very funny. And it also looks like this issue is allowing David to poke a bit of fun at Rob Liefeld and the ridiculousness of 90s superhero comics. So you have Shatterstar wearing his silly 90s head-dress and the villain at the very end looks like every Youngblood villain melded into one. Now I don’t hate Liefeld like a lot of people, but it’s good to acknowledge how dumb his work can be. Leonard Kirk’s art was fantastic as usual, he’s perfect for this title’s tone, in that he can slip from comedy to violence and drama very easily.

I feel like, Secret Invasion-aside, this run will go down in history as one of the all-time X-greats.. And it's because PAD puts so much of the focus on the characters, rather than the story (although that is also excellent, overall.) Even something as odd as X-Factor investigating a team of wannabe heroes is interesting. LOVED the Jamie/Alex dynamic. I'm glad Jamie isn't taking this lying down, and having them be co-leaders makes sense, with Alex doing the X-Men type stuff and Jamie leading the detective stuff. Also, I love soulless Guido.
