Leah Williams and David Baldeon kicked off the new X-Factor last month with the story of Jean-Paul Beaubier (Northstar) gathering a team to investigate the death of his sister, Jeanne-Marie Beaubier (Aurora), in hopes of resurrecting her on Krakoa. This month’s issue begins with Aurora and Northstar’s reunion and quickly moves to X-Factor’s newest case,…
The end of an empyre! Empyre: X-Men, that is. Can the X-Men survive the onslaught of the undead and the Cotati’s living doomsday weapon? Dani Kinney and Kayleigh Hearn survey the wreckage in Empyre: X-Men #4!
Genosha, once the graveyard for 16 million mutants, is now crawling with life! Well, alien and zombie life (half-life?), that is. Suddenly swarmed, the X-Men have called in a small army of psychics to stave both invasions. Can they succeed? Read on with Dani Kinney and Kayleigh Hearn to find out!

Leah Williams and David Baldeon’s X-Factor #1 marks the newest title in Marvel’s ever-growing Dawn of X lineup.

This week’s oversized first issue is the classic getting-the-team-together story, but it delivers more than enough personality…
“He has fire within him…”
I mentioned last time that Cable had been among my lowest expectations for the current line of X-Books, and how happy I was to be surprised. While the second issue feels a little slight in comparison, it’s got some really, really gratifying moments.
