All-New X-Factor #2 (Comics) Preview

The brand new, corporately sponsored X-Factor heads into battle against the rising tide of a revitalized A.I.M.

This January, Serval Industries newest employees infiltrate a heavily guarded A.I.M. base in the thrilling ALL-NEW X-FACTOR #2! And their first time in the field isn’t going so well! From the blockbuster creative team of Peter David and Carmine Di Giandomenico comes an team unlike anything you’ve ever seen before! Led by mutant mistress of magnetism Polaris – it’s up to the All-New X-Factor to fight their way through scores of A.I.M. agents armed to the teeth. But is there more to the mission than corporate backers Serval Industries are telling them? Don’t miss Polaris, Quicksilver, and Gambit’s first mission in ALL-NEW X-FACTOR #2. Because this January, it could be their last!

Another ‘All-New’ branded book, Marvel’s latest relaunch of the classic X-Factor series is starting off with something of a bang. The new team has a pretty great lineup (even if it is missing the now Avenger Havok) and counts a bunch of fan-favorite characters as part of its roster.

Bringing in the A.I.M. story arc is a solid way to get the team involved with what’s going on on the larger stage of the Marvel Universe too. Advanced Idea Mechanics, if you didn’t know, is returning to prominence in the Marvel U this year with an influence that’ll be felt in numerous titles to come. The group of super-scientists and techies have long been an underlying threat in to the Avengers and Iron Man and the like, but they’ve never really been the baddies that they probably could be- 2014 will go a long way towards changing that as the Marvel U continues its revamp and reshuffle of power.

I’ve always liked X-Factor as a brand too, in any incarnation, so I’m happy to see it making a comeback right along with the tech-nerds of A.I.M. All-New X-Factor #2 will hit stands on January 22nd from the team of famed writer Peter David (reason enough to get excited) and artist Carmine Di Giandomenico.
