A pretty interesting and experimental issue that explores Layla Miller and how her nebulous powers work. I liked it, but I’m not sure if I’m really that much clearer about Layla now than I was before. The use of different coloured panels was a very cool technique, but the fact that we don’t know how which of the multiple timelines actually happened is kind of a weakness. It doesn’t matter for the first one, because the outcome remains the same, but for the other ones, like the man who could either get shot, go home to his depressing apartment or strike rich, or more importantly, for M and Strong Guy, we don’t know what actually happened. I’m sure we’ll find out about M and Guido next issue, but it was a bit of a let-down. I appreciate the experimentation, but PAD didn’t stick the landing. Of course, it wouldn’t be an issue of X-Factor if there weren’t a bunch of mysterious teases, so now we’ve got a mysterious German redhead, and the promise of Madrox contracting some strange disease in the future. I may have to re-read this one actually, it’s a bit of a head-scratcher.
