Bring back Jamie!

I thought he turned down the Thieves Guild and his pappy took over o.O

Or did I just get them confused because they look so much alike... XD

In Peter David I trust.

It was SO GOOD!!!! The Clay Mann art is some of the best I've ever seen.

It just looks so dated. Take away the headpiece and it'd be fine.

So Wolverine can murder at will but Gambit cant get a bit of five finger discount? Talk about double standards

I see what you mean.

Like how things are looking so far but I am not fan of Giandomenico.

@doomnaut: Why ? PAD ended his story with the previous series. Some characters need a break and have some peace.

As long as Logan knows that when he wakes up in the morning to see those kids learning and stuff, the killing is totally okay especially since every life he's ever taken didn't matter (That IS what he said to Cyke after all)

one more book with wolverine in it,...

Never read X-Factor in my life. But this looks pick up worthy

I actually prefer this costume. It's original. Besides, I'm guessing he switches to the Serval costume eventually. I'd prefer something that looks unique.

He killed Northstar

Excited to pick this up. I never read X-Factor before but people praise Peter David and his run so I'm definitely going to follow this series.

Posted by frogjitsu

YES!!! I love it when Wolverine spews garbage lines like, "I know everything." Such a clown.

Being a comic book character is like being in the mafia. You're never really "out."

The last volume of X factor was pretty damned awesome. This new series has some big shoes to fill to be honest. Even if this new volume turns out sucky I would still recommend reading the last volume. It's just a great series on its own and, it was mostly unaffected by wolverine and cylops' petty disputes. Which was a huge plus for me. You don't even need to be a fan of any of the characters beforehand.

Posted by MatKrenz

@sparty_dbq: Not when your a C-list character. Your usually forgotten for about 3-5 years.

Edited by TheLaughingFish

Gambits eyes are all wrong
or is there and in universe reason why they look normal now?

it's only the one issue....

this complaint is getting really old

Posted by Shazam78

It's not an X title until Logan shows up. Like the art Quicksilver's new costume. I feel nostalgic seeing Pietro and Lorna on X Factor team again.

I know, I'm just quoting what Logan said to Cylcops when he was called a hypocrite. Logan said all of his kills never mattered but the one kill Cyclops has does.

Posted by CheeseSticks

Logan is such an asshole. Saying to Gambit that he's a teacher and he should watch himself because he's a thief, when he hire Fantomex to be a teacher. Lol, a thief replace by an assassin-thief. GG Wolvi.

My one beef

Who's the guy in the red hood?

I hope it's Wiccan with the new costume. I dig that costume a lot and he's an interesting character.

Posted by Cavemold

That art is so horrid. Why.

I might give this book a chance...maybe since Gambits in it

Posted by KomicKev

@danhimself: It's a valid complaint because, well, Wolverine is in almost every comic book these days. He's in nearly all the X-titles, at least a couple of Avengers titles, and has two of his own titles. He can pop his claws at any moment as a "guest star" in a Spider-Man or a Hulk or Deadpool or Captain America comic without breaking a sweat. I can't even keep up in which ones he still has his healing factor and which ones he doesn't. Yes, he's a popular character (to some) but I guess continuity be damned - - his new mutation is he can flit around the globe in a few seconds so he can have an adventure in every corner of it nearly simultaneously!

Posted by Teerack

I just want to see Quicksilver become a team leader.

Posted by G_Money_Christmas

I was going back and forth over whether I should get this or not. The answer is now yes.

Edited by TomHunter

Couldn't exactly tell you why, but Polaris has always been one of my favorite women in the X-mutant pantheon. I don't know if it's because she isn't wildly over exposed like most of the X-characters or what but just having her in this book means that I am 'in' for this book.

@maddpanda531 said:

@darkday: @farkam: On the cover? That's Warlock.

I knew it wasn't Wiccan, but you can dream...

Also, huh. Interesting. I don't think I've read much with Warlock since his return.

Edit:

@teerack Also want to see that. Haven't read much with Quicksilver since Avengers Academy, but it is good to see him back. And a team with him and Gambit on it together just sounds fun.

one more book with wolverine in it,...

But he isn't in it long-term...just as part of establishing the story and showing why Remy isn't at the Jean Grey School anymore...

Edited by Namor1987

I like this team idea.

On the bright side, we have Peter David, so at least we won't have to worry about the writing.

Plus maybe he'll be able to make me like Gambit.

I hope Danger gets a redesign.

Posted by John Valentine

Hopefully PAD will do well with this new (for the most part) cast. His run on X-Factor, though a good book, just seemed to drag on a bit towards the end, ignoring that lull in the middle (post M-Day to issue #39).
