This isn’t your Daddy’s (or Simon Cowell’s) X-Factor. X-Factor started as “mutant hunters”, became a government sponsored team and have now become X-Factor Investigations. The team was first composed of the original X-Men but has since gone through multiple roster changes.

Peter David is the writer here and combines a fast paced story line with his trademark wit. The story is about a pregnant Rahne Sinclair, Wolfsbane, who’s being chased by every single wolf-related character (except Cap-Wolf,

Jack Russell, Werewolf by Night?!!??!?

Peter David, you really have a knack for taking the lost misfits of the Marvel U and turning them into an absolutely fantastic team. Pip the Troll? Who could have or would have ever thought this would work. Bringing in Werewlf by Night on this arc? A brilliant idea. Somehow, David just knows what I want to see. He knows by instinct what will work and is ready to fit all the misshapen pieces together. He's a master. And unlike other writers of the 80's, he's
Points to Peter David for bringing in some obscure Marvel Universe characters and myths (real or not I didnt do the research) to resolve the issue of Rahne's pregnancy.

Without doing huge exposition dumps David explains why her pregnancy is moving along so fast, and why her child is desired by some many pantheons. Well paced, a huge plus is that the pregnancy story line is not drawn out forever. At the same time a story point to be resolved is Rahne's religious beliefs and issues revolving aroun
High four, borderline five. The only downside to this was that there wasn't more of it. Also I did the dumb newbie thing and jumped in in the middle of a story because I've always wanted to read Marvel comics but I'm starting late and I had to pick a point to start. So naturally I picked a Wolfsbane story because I love the character. The art and the dialogue in this collection were amazing, and the story was really well done. Like I said I would very much like to read more of these stories, and ...more

Another superb entry into the X-Factor series. Peter David goes from strength to strength on this book, and this is the culmination of a long standing plotline that still leaves everything open to be returned to later on. The art has its ups and downs, mainly because it's not very consistent, but overall there are no complaints.
A fun volume. The developments with Rahne and, more surprisingly, Pip and Guido are great, and the art is great: Davidson's art recalls early Mignola, while Luppachino continues to shine. Good stuff.
Another hilarious mutant adventure a la Peter David.
It is a shame that Marvel can't hook this entertaining writer up with stronger artists.
What is wrong with you MARVEL???

Much of this is a big, long-running fight, but the characterization & humor manages to save the book.
