X-Factor: Second Coming

by Matthew Price Published: July 16, 2011

X-Factor #204-206, Nation X: X-Factor

These issues, collected in the trade paperback “X-Factor: Second Coming,” released in early 2011, tie into the overall “X-Men: Second Coming” storyline, but work well enough on their own that you don’t have to worry about following the entire storyline.

Bolivar Trask secretly hires X-Factor for an apparently routine mission that leads them into his planned death trap. A subplot involves Monet, Strong Guy and Baron Mordo. Writer Peter David provides his typically witty dialogue.

In the “Nation X” one-shot, Cyclops invites the team to move into his floating island of Utopia.  But while they’re there, they must face off against the mysterious Crone as Longshot rekindles a romance.
