    No, this one-shot isn't for everyone. If you don't like Quicksilver, you will want to just pass it by on the shelf. However, if you read House of M, Son of M, Silent War, or have otherwise been invested in this character for a while, you will definitely want to get it. Those on the fence or other new readers will be able to get up to speed easily enough, but some of the events will certainly not carry the same weight they would to longtime fans. Read Full Review

    Now, in all honesty if you aren't the least bit interested in Quicksilver, this book isn't for you. I don't think his well-written sulking insanity will garner converts, but fans of X-Factor and Peter David in general will thoroughly enjoy this book, as well as readers looking for a good hero awakening story. Although not much else may come out of this one-shot, Quicksilver will be a usable player for some writer to use in the future and thankfully that writer won't have to dig the character out of ton of emotional baggage.

    Those things aside, it's a perfectly serviceable issue, made enjoyable by Peter David's flair for dialogue and Raimondi's fantastic artwork. Whether it's supposed to be a character reset because the X-Office is done using him, or the beginning of a new arc for Quicksilver is unclear, but either way, the issue is worth the money for anyone interested in mutants, or even Avengers continuity -- not just "X-Factor" buyers.

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren May 7, 2008

    I don't think this needed an entire issue to tell either, so I'm a bit annoyed at paying for something that could have easily been done in 3-4 pages in a regular X-Factor book, but it's not like this was absolutely terrible or anything, so I guess it's not a total waste. Read Full Review
