A Team Of Mutants Pay A High Price For Fame, Fortune And Power In X-Factor


Recommended Posts

While the X-Men’s mission forces them to work outside the law, certain teams have found ways to fight for mutant rights within the system as officially sanctioned strike forces! In the upcoming From the Ashes era, that tradition continues in a new volume of X-FACTOR from Eisner winning writer Mark Russell (Fantastic Four: Life Story, The Flintstones) and acclaimed X-Men artist Bob Quinn (Captain America, Knights of X).

Formed by the government in response to a post-Krakoa outbreak of mutant paramilitary, ops squads, and mercenary teams, X-FACTOR will be co-led by Angel and Havok and include recruits like Pyro, Frenzy, Feral, and more. Part special agents for missions that require an arsenal of superpowers and part celebrity propaganda machine, X-FACTOR will wage war against emerging factions like the Mutant Underground and X-Term. Whether they believe in their actions or are just doing it for a check, the members of X-Factor are no fools when it comes to shady politics. As hidden agendas rear their ugly head, they’ll fight against the dark consequences and disastrous public opinion from the inside!

FAME, FORTUNE, MUTANTS! From the ashes of Krakoa, a new mutant arms race sweeps the globe! International governments are building their own mutant armies. But only America’s X-Factor has the most powerful, most patriotic, most marketable mutant heroes to stem the tide and make the world safe for democracy! Join them as they go from one death-defying mission to another. Who will die? Who will fall in love? Who will be the first to sell out? Like, comment and subscribe to find out!

“The thing I've always loved about the X-Men is that they're characters first, super heroes second,” Russell shared. “So being able to write characters like Havok and Angel and Frenzy in a post-Krakoa reality is an opportunity to write about what I really care about, which is how do we help each other survive the apathy of the world we live in?”

“It’s so exciting to be back and drawing mutants in the X-Men universe again, and doubly exciting to work with Mark again,” Quinn added. “To my mind, Mark’s mix of humor and ability to shine a light on the peculiarities of modern society make him the perfect writer to tackle the relaunch of X-FACTOR. Drawing this team and every unexpected twist and turn of the story has been a blast so far, and I can’t wait for readers to get their hands on it.”

Soooo....ive not read comics for years. Is Warren no longer Archangel?  

I think he can switch back and forth between the two personas now. And I think there's something about him being Archangel too long that makes him more sadistic. But now the two personas are merged. Something like that. It's pretty silly. It's one of those things that one of these hack writers did and now it's hard to walk it back. Though like you I stopped following all that well years ago when Marvel hated the X-Men. And then when they got them back the writers they put in to do the books were just awful. So eventually I just gave up. Still love all the characters and hope one day they come back. I do have hopes for this series though.

Finally! Marvel is giving more spotlight to Angel! The Krakoan era did him dirty. Of the original 5 X-Men, Warren is easily the least represented in mainstream media and even the comics in recent years have not given Warren much attention compared to Scott, Jean, Hank, and even Bobby. As a Cyclops fanboy, I am most excited for this series during the From the Ashes era.
