Poor Weezie. Writer Louise Simonson took over the X-Factor series, starring the forgotten and lame duck original X-Men, and revitalized it right out of the gate with the creation of the powerful mutant antagonist Apocalypse. She continued to write many of the original X-Factor's best comic moments, including the transformation of the Archangel, and the first big X-Men crossover, the Mutant Massacre.

It's pretty much another run through the "Chris Claremont X-Men Universe", although in this case, the Louise Simonson version technically. But her style bears similar similarities, good ones, to Claremont's decades long run about these well meaning mutants who get picked on by humanity and have to fight other mutants.

The strength of all these X-Men comics (between Classic X-Men, Uncanny X-Men, Wolverine, and others, like twenty essential volumes alone!), which this one is no different, is the em

On the downside, there's a six-parter, "Judgement War" at the end of the book that's not quite up to snuff.

Everybody is someone's baby, and the Simonson/Simonson run on X-Factor is probably my favorite run on any comic ever.
