"meh" all round. I have a gripe in that surely Havok and Polaris are way overpowered in the context of this team?
The issue was good, though I'm not sold on the villian's plot either, but I have a feeling that Horn lady is talking out of her ass so the Isolationist aids here. We'll see. Havok and Polaris are still feeling like very special guest stars and not part of the cast, though I did somewhat appreciate their park scene.
I really liked this issue, especially Terry's scene where she reminds Havok that she used to lead the team as well. I don't get why Havok's being a douche, but, like someone else said, that's kinda his thing?
LMAO @ the scene where Jaimie is being hugged. I like Terry's response "Nooooo," and Shatterstar's comment about it being the dupe. More of this gay dupe, please.
Oh, and Layla + Monet < Terry + Monet, but I'm curious to see how PAD makes it work!
Less of M becoming best friends with everyone, more of her humiliating Wolfsbane.

I'm just glad that we are starting to see the new team dynamic in play at last. Everyone seemed to guess that Alex would just walk in and assume command and I love seeing them all give him grief for it! Let's hope that thread continues for a while as I can see a lot of mileage in that friction, both humorous and dramatic!

Not too sure how I'm feeling about Alex and Lorna leading. I don't know, maybe I'm too much of a Madrox fan to see HIS TEAM being led by two characters that just show up out the blue and get put into leadership positions. It's X-Factor Investigations and not X-Factor after all. Plus when are they going to start wearing the XFI belts like the rest of the team? What, is Alex's uniform too cool for the team belt or whatever, or is it coming and I just need to take a chill pill, wait and be more patient? Lol Still even with my gripes, the issue was a great read a usual with X-Factor

Come vote for the next 'Draw Me An Avenger Jam' Theme.
As far as the issue goes, I'm excited to see the team in action- I was looking for a thread for the preview for next issues, which should be fun! I'm very curious to find out who Scattershot is!
This is what they're working on now. Leonard Kirk has top billing now and the second artist for the moment appears to be Neil Edwards.
Ok, so I was reviewing this comic and it had me thinking about the art. Personally, I think Kirk is absolutely killing it. Compare this work to his earlier issues and you can see real improvement. That's exactly what I like to see in a comic artist -- improvement. Don't get me wrong, I love artists like JRJR, but the work doesn't evolve; it becomes stale. The art in this issue is fresh. I dig it.
The first few issues looked rushed, it seems like he is spending more time on this. It's still great either way/
here. Looks good!
