    Aaand another Marvel title-franchise dump of same day books released. All-New Doop 002, Amazing X-Men 007, Magneto 004 Wolverine and the X-Men 004, X-Men-v4 014... *sigh* Got to try to choose what title to try to get to after UXM021. [Thankfully no annoying appearance of Sam or Berto in Avengers World 006 to critique.] Today, let's go with the most predictably promising of the bunch:

    All-New X-Factor 008

    -fun cover
    -"DESICCATING": neat word. First time ever read it. Go, Learning!
    -excellent opening splash and grateful immediate followup

I'm with Lorna: Screw pie!

    -sure, Georgia is backtalking to her father but y'gotta give her credit for some decent zingers [and sweet characterization; she seems a sure thing, people, to replace Idie's endearing lost innocence]

I certainly hope we see more of her.

    -"TRACER BULLETS": potentially/precidentially cool 'Kryptonite' concept for Quicksilver and speedsters

Nah. Can't see any bullet being able to travel as fast as Pietro does, so big deal if it can trace.

    -Harrison snow shows up to show more 'layers' to his person
    -"How's your wife" concern... heheheh... yeeeah... riiight... nudge nudge wink wink

Could have been concern for her, not for him though.

    -the 'robots' trying to argue FOR the X-cause was funny!

It got unfunny quickly. It seemed to turn into cruelty very quickly.

    -the whole conflict resolution felt refreshingly uniquely handled again for a team title [in lieu of bigscreen/comicbook action]
    -Harrison Snow: layers, people, more layers
