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

Wikipedia agrees with you. Man, my memory is really unreliable. I would have sworn that when I saw her in some Bendis story, I already knew who she was from the Peter David series. Apparently the exact opposite was the case.

    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.

And as far as I knew, her only unusual ability was to know things.

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

I think Layla Miller was actually a halfway decent character in House of M. I don't know how that happened.

Ha... maybe this is a case of "create enough characters and some will be good"?

I really liked Layla in the early X-Factor stories... moreso than her House of M appearance.
