Many of us were saddened upon the news of X-FACTOR ending. Thankfully, like certain other series that have had a surprise ending, the book will be back in the All-New Marvel Now format. Also, it should be noted that Peter David is back as well. Joining him will be Carmine Di Giandomenico doing the art.
Here's a first look Marvel released giving us a glimpse at the new team and direction of the series.
Serval Industries, the world’s foremost leader in cutting-edge internet and weapons technology has just unveiled their newest contribution to society – it’s superhuman division, the All-New X-Factor! Led by Polaris, the mutant mistress of magnetism, fellow X-Factor members Quicksilver, Gambit, Danger, Cypher, and Warlock use their powers for the betterment of society.
Or are their corporate backers at Serval Industries using X-Factor for the betterment of themselves?
“So much of what happens in this country stems from corporate control and involvement,” explained Peter David, in an interview with Marvel.com “So why not expand that real world philosophy to the world of comics and have it be that a corporation is interested in expanding into super heroes? I mean, if super heroes really existed, that's probably what would happen.”
Can Serval Industries be trusted? Or are their intentions much more malevolent. The mystery begins this January in the explosive ALL-NEW X-FACTOR #1!
