Did someone mention the Nasty Boys?

Epi. 013

X-Factor #75 is a Giant Sized issue so we focused on nothing but the team this episode.  We come to find out that Mr. Sinister is the gentle-fellow pulling the strings behind the scenes and that Senator Shaffron is just another pawn in his “sinister” plans!?!  I know, sorry.  But we do get a well deserved end to this arc we have been reading but have been left with more questions that may or may not ever get answered.

Wolverine is on a mission and will stop at nothing to get the answers he is looking for.  Except for some really neat motor-scooter stunts off the top of a building.  But not even Col.

Rotten Car Bombs

Epi. 010

As we start X-Men #4 we find ourselves straight out of an Indiana Jones movie with the reanimation of Omega Red, who is here to finish a fight, that we weren’t informed about, with Wolverine.  All the while the X-Men are enjoying a little R&R and kick start a basketball game that quickly gets out of hand as everyone wants to use their powers because, what’s the point of having powers if you can’t use them?  The group decides to take a break as they all go on a date with Gambit.  It goes as well as you would think.  X-Factor #74 starts on a creepy note as we find the issues bad guy, Slab, stalking the team but is one-uped by the teams very own Wolfsbane.  Guido/Strong-Guy gets into a fist fight with Slab and the end up destroying a national monument and we get a hint as to who may have been really pulling the strings, behind the scenes.  A sinister plot is very much underway.
