    Layla was good when Peter David first introduced her and for a while afterward. He should have just kept her as she was. No explanation. No real back story. She just knew things. I was fascinated by that simple concept. It was a cool power. I liked it. Oh, and lest we forget - Bendis used her in some awful cross-over. House of M? I think that was it but I could easily be wrong. I wish characters had free will and could refuse to let writers use them. They would all flee the scene when Bendis showed up for a recruitment drive.

Although I'm not sure who created the character I am sure that her first appearance was actually in House of M.

She then appeared in Peter David's X-Factor series. The first storyline included her getting connected with X-Factor Investigations as they tried to figure out what caused M-Day.

So is this an example of a writer redeeming a character created by another writer?
