Oh, wait.

Didn't Madrox "die" in the first issue with this X-Factor team? I found that death as believably final as this one. Or any Madrox death, for that matter.

Dude's power is making clones of himself. Writers need all of one (1) second to figure out how to bring him back.

Good Points:

Haven genuinely believing in her cause makes her more interesting than a lot of "rule the world" types. I particularly like how we see her rationalize away the evidence against her being a Chosen One.

Monsoon is also more complex than he had to be.

Foil cover makes it easy to tell what decade this comic was published.

Bad Points:

Trying to sell Madrox's death as a serious dramatic beat. He'll be back in literally 5 issues.

"Should I let my friend die a horrible death" not exactly a complex moral choice. Maybe if Haven had attached conditions to it, like "I'll heal him if you let me go", but she's making the offer with no strings attached.

Random is still here.

Have they established Haven's truly bizarre backstory by this point?

You mean we saw her again?

That whole thing about the "voice from within" gets pretty crazy. I'm not sure if I should spoil it in case OP is going to post scans from annual #9 and issue #117.

I'm glad I didn't read comics in the '90s. The art would have triggered my migraines like a pulsing strobe light.

You just had to read the right comics, that's all. A lot of comics in the 1990s had actual art...but a lot of the titles were trying really hard to emulate Image's perceived house ludicrous effect.

Isn't there always at least one Madrox as "designated survivor"?

There's always one squirreled away somewhere, just in case.
