I picked up X-Factor when Havok and Polaris joined and to be honest, I wish I hadn't. Either it's PAD writing or just the very nature of the two characters but it's very clear to me why they were left in Space so long. They really do bring nothing to the story. An already bland cast was just made even more dull by the addition or writing of these two. I seriously which I knew what it was. I know these two characters can be compelling but nothing is clicking. I keep hearing about the story of Lorna's mother...HOW INTERESTING!
Please Peter David! Do something fun with these characters!
