Todd & Joe Have Issues 05/18/17: X-Factor 87

3209_4_0071

Back in 1991, Marvel relauched the entire mutant side of things, giving us two X-Men teams (Blue and Gold), X-Force, a more militant version of the previous New Mutants and X-Factor, a branch of the government replacing the previous villianous Freedom Force, written by Peter David.

For some reason, I thought David’s inital run was longer, but it did give us gems¬†like this week’s ‘Have Issues, where the team has one on one conversations with a mystery person. I do like the misdirect on the cover of who that person is.

Peter David would later return to these characters in late 2004 where he would pen their tales under various titles for the next ten years. Still, not as gigantic as his 19 year run on Incredible Hulk. Peter David sure likes to stick around.

Any discussion, thoughts, feelings, criticisms¬†of this week’s selection can be placed below in the comments section. As well as suggestions about future choices for one shot issues to add to our list.
