As Havok and Polaris take the reins of X-Factor Investigations, the Isolationist makes his chilling return! Then, when someone or something begins eviscerating super heroes in Seattle, X-Factor is called in to investigate. But when they encounter the villainous Scattershot, who looks suspiciously like two members of X-Factor Investigations, Shatterstar goes berserk! (’Nuff said!) Plus: Monet calls out Layla, and what starts as a catfight rapidly gets ugly! And a departed member of X-Factor returns! Collecting X-FACTOR (1986) #233-236.
