This was only an OK issue of X-Factor, probably because I don’t really care about Siryn/Banshee and the characters I am most interested were either absent or didn’t do much like Havok. The artwork by Paul Davidson was strong, and I’m very interested in what the deal is with that Red Demon Chick who’s been hanging around for a while and stepped in here to help Banshee out. What is her deal? Is she evil or what? Who knows. The Strong Guy/M stuff was pretty cool I guess, I’ve been very impressed by how well PAD has written a character with no soul, he’s not gone the obvious route of making him eeevil, and that’s really made Guido fascinating. I feel like this book is a bit too disparate at the moment, there are too many characters, and not only that, they are all off doing different things, I think we need one arc with everyone together fighting the same fight.
