    Things are looking bad for Quicksilver if Fatale, Abyss and Reaper are involved. My guess is they're not going to buy his "it wasn't me, it was a skrull" excuse.

    In the previous X-Factor, those three mutants + blob, callisto, marrow, and elijah banded together because they thought "Decimation" (when Wanda depowered all the mutants) was caused by the government. Elijah asks Quicksilver for help since at the time, he had the terrigen crystals and could briefly repower mutants. Quicksilver repowers Elijah, Fatale, Reaper and Abyss. Elijah explodes because the terrigen mists are actually bad for humans. Fatale, Reaper and Abyss were also about to explode, but Abyss sucks them all in another dimension to try and forestall their deaths. Since then, they haven't been seen. But now they're back, and probably not too happy with Quickie for what he did to them.

    Fatale was an assassin hired by the Dark Beast to stalk and kill Bishop once upon a time.
    Reaper was the member of the MLF who kept having his hand(s) cut off by members of X-Force in the 90s.
    Abyss is the 616 version of the Horseman of Apocalypse from Age of Apocalypse Universe, who had the Legacy Virus in his debut issue, and never died of it. He also is one of those teleporting mutants who are children of Azazel.


    Anyway, those 3 characters were all part of X-Cell, who appeared in PAD's X-Factor (vol. 3) #18-20. They were mutants depowered by the Decimation who believed the government did it to wipe out all mutants. They were being hunted by SHIELD as domestic terrorists. Quicksilver, at the time having Terrigen Crystals in his body, offered to restore their powers. Of course, this restoration was unstable, and resulted in the death of Elijah Cross, X-Cell's leader.

    The rest of the group jumped inside Abyss's teleportation cavity to flee, and hadn't been seen since. With or without powers. Until Fatale turned up last issue, and the other two are now shown back in the preview for the second issue.


    It's a PAD plot hook he'd promised to get back to at some point. And now he has.

    Did not see this coming. Lovely twist. Good to see PAD isn't brushing QS's actions post M day under the carpet. I hate when a hero's bad deeds are ignored or kind of fudged. Deal with them head on, and then he can be a proper team member.

    Love when Po remembers how magnificent she is and lets rip. I want to see her kick butt too.

    I love the European style art on this book! The action sequences look so amazing! They also changed the cover color from yellow to blue: smart decision. Yellow looks nice on occasion, but in this book is was getting overwhelming.
    I wish this preview was released on Monday, cuz now i have too many days of extreme anticipation- ug!

    I like the blue cover too. I can't wait to see how they get out of this mess.

    I wonder if this is the reason Quicksilver showed up at X-factor ie he and/or Harrsion Snow know who the mutants being held captive were and their connection to Quicksilver. Seems a bit too convenient otherwise. Also, probably unrelated but wonder if this is connects to Marrow's return in X-force since she was part of X-cell. Wishful thinking but it would be nice to see Marrow and Gambit connect again.

    It's hard for me to listen to people not in my position. A caterpillar can't relate to what an eagle envisions.

    Seeing Polaris just go "f**k it" and start tearing shit up is awesome.

    Maybe. I doubt we'll see Marrow immediately, though. Both her and Callisto got wise to Quicksilver's "fix" for their lost powers, and didn't hop inside Abyss like the other 3. She probably won't be in Hoffman's lab with the other members of X-Cell.
