Charles Xavier jerks around with Magneto’s brain, X-Factor tries to protect the evidence, the Avengers pay a not-very-diplomatic visit to the mutant island homeland, and there’s yet one more mind-control baddie afoot. Oh, and Polaris has her Ph.D.
Who killed the Scarlet Witch at the Hellfire Gala? X-Factor investigates: was it… Magneto? Will he turn against the entire Krakoan experiment? And will his other super-heroic children, Polaris and Quicksilver, try to bring him down?

X-Factor is a hard book for me to talk about. It’s not that it’s bad—quite the opposite—it’s that it quite literally is challenging me on every level when I read it. That’s a factor (heh) I adore.
