    The one thing I wasn't so much a fan of was the execution of Madrox's storyline. I think it's safe to assume that most readers were able to figure out the identity of Jamie's new client last issue in the very first panel, so there really wasn't much surprise to the eventual reveal. I've always loved how Marvel characters seem to either have an encyclopedic knowledge of the universe of villains or absolutely none at all. Given the stature of this particular villain, it seems silly that she would put so little effort in hiding her identity, and that Jaime (who acquired a wealth of knowledge sending out dupes over the years) would have no clue either. In the long run, it's a small quibble, but it still took me out of the story more than it needed to. In the end, X-Factor is always at the top of its game when not burdened by event tie-ins, so I expect good things going forward. Read Full Review

    It's been a while since I reviewed "X-Factor," so I'm pleased to say that the book remains as strong as ever, helped enormously by the fact that the crossover has been banished from its pages once again. Solid, entertaining, and with a next issue preview that you can't help but look forward to. Not bad at all. Read Full Review
