It stopped near the end, and I mean it didn't play all the way through for me.

No, a witty play on words with relation to the star of the book :).

I thought this book was Great.  
I love Peter Davids writing. 
Does anyone else notice that Madrox looks like Conan O'brien on the cover?

@Tony: What can I say, I'm a big X-Factor fan.

Ah keep in mind a member of X-factor was guest star in the second limited series of Deadpool (pre-continuous series)

On thing, you probably can't find all this information on Marvel.com. They are often notoriously outdated in their information. Luckily, there is ComicVine. Though not all characters get the same amount of attention to their profiles.
 
Those old sunglasses look like Lawrence Fishburne's Morpheus sunglasses.
 
The whole Madrox baby drama was just so twisted, but I read something there Peter Davis explained why he did it. Peter David does very well in writing a consistent story.
 
I really like Ruby Summers. I would really like to see her brought in some way into regular continuity. I think it could be a cool cover of both Ruby and Emma on a cover in their bejeweled forms.

@AngelFrost: 
 
Pause the video and look at her hidden partner's text bubbles. There's something distinctive about them that may clue you in.

$4.99 for reprints and bio crap with a tacked on half story. I like XF, but this was blah

X-Factor 200 was surprisingly my favourite comic book of last week.  I've been collecting it since PD started writing  it again and even though it's been a good read through out this issue felt like he only now really hit his stride with the title.  I loved it!

I loves me some X-Factor, as long as Peter David is writing it I'm there, he never fails to deliver a consistently entertaining story, humorous dialogue, incredible characterization on each and every one of his characters, enough interpersonal drama to keep things interesting between all of the characters, and that last page is always worth reading the entire issue for. 
 
Seriously, David has worked miracles with what he's been given, essentially the cast offs from the rest of the X-Books and he makes them more enjoyable then pretty much the rest of the X-Universe combined, well minus X-Force cause X-Force is pretty awesome most of the time, but still, I always like X-Factor more than just about any other book Marvel produces. 
 
That 5 buck price tag might scare a few people off, hopefully not, but if you want a just plain fun book with great character driven stories, don't pass up on X-Factor.  I mean come on, Peter David made Shatter Star interesting, SHATTER STAR!
