X-Factor #215
Story by Peter David
Art by Valentine De Landro, Pat Davidson
Colors by Jeromy Cox
Letters by VC - Cory Petit
Cover by David Yardin, Sonia Oback
Publisher Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date Wed, February 9th, 2011

A man is dead, apparently the victim of a vampire attack. But is it truly some random crime of violence? Or is it, as his daughter believes, an elaborate ruse, designed to draw attention away from the real culprit? And can X-Factor separate fact from fiction?

The site owners have implemented a new system where any thread over 1000 posts are automatically closed and reopened by a bot if they are posted in. Well, I kind of bit the bullet and asked danoyse to close some of the thread over that limit so I could restart them myself without all the nonsense for the thread manager bot.

Written by PETER DAVID

The SCARs -- the deadliest team of women around -- are out to frame the Black Cat for murder. But they're not the only ones with homicide on their mind, because a furious Monet is out for blood on behalf of her teammate who was gunned down. Can X-Factor stop the elegant Ms. St. Croix from killing one of their deadliest foes...and do they even want to?

Since debuting in 2005, X-Factor has been a model of consistency in Marvel’s frequently shifting X-Men line. Not only has every issue — 67 in total, counting the renumbering at issue #200 — been written by Peter David, but it’s also stuck to the same main cast, centered by Multiple Man/private investigator, Jamie Madrox.

Recently, the comic has interacted more with the greater Marvel Universe, with a recent arc seeing Thor show up when the team was in Vegas, and the current storyline, which started with this week’s issue #216 (preview here), guest-starring Spider-Man, Black Cat and J. Jonah Jameson. Plus, Darwin left the team and had a bizarre old west adventure, Monet had an ominous encounter with a mysterious woman, and Rictor and Shatterstar have seen tension develop in their relationship due to the return of a now-very-pregnant Rahne Sinclair.

Newsarama talked with David about returning to writing Spider-Man — a character he's worked with before in stories such as 1985's much-revered "The Death of Jean DeWolff" — the decision to bring Pip the Troll into the book, when we might see Darwin again, and when we should ready the cigars for Rahne's big day.

Newsarama: Peter, after the done-in-one story in #215, we're back with a multi-part arc in #216, featuring Spider-Man, Black Cat and J. Jonah Jameson. Thor was also in the book recently — is it fair to say that these guest spots are a deliberate effort to get X-Factor more involved with the MU as a whole?

Peter David: Yes, it's definitely fair to say that. Originally XF's mission statement was to cater to the concerns of the MU's mutants, particularly in Mutant Town. But with the advent of M-Day and the coming of Utopia, that became largely moot. So now the team has moved on to what they feel is a true realization of Xavier's dream: That mutants are peacefully co-existing with humans. The best way to do that is for the team to specialize in cases that stem from the needs of the various denizens of the Marvel Universe.

Nrama: And this story also means your return to writing Spider-Man, a character you have a long history with. What's it like returning to Spidey — and has your take on the character changed at all since the last time he was in one of your comics?

David: Not really. Spidey is Spidey. He may go through various changes in status quo, but at core, he's still your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. In this instance, he happened to be swinging through X-Factor's neighborhood.

Nrama: Based on the solicitations, it seems that Black Cat is even more important to this story than Spider-Man — what do you like about that character, and why is she a good match for the title?

David: Actually using Felicia stemmed from the nature of the story. Jonah Jameson is consulting with X-Factor over a series of events that would normally fall under Felicia's purview, and Felicia can get rather territorial with these things. So she winds up being drawn into the middle of it.

Nrama: Also, based on the preview of #216 released online, it looks like this arc may have to do with the mysterious woman Monet had an encounter with a few issues back?

David: Yes, that's exactly right.

Nrama: Got a few character-specific questions — issues #213 and #214 were heavily Darwin-centric, and though he's left the team, it's clear his story's a long way from being over. Can readers expect to check-in with him regularly, or might it be a while before we see him again following the events of #214?

David: He's going to be showing up sometime after #220.

Nrama: Though Darwin has left the team for the time being, it looks like Pip the Troll is here for a while. At face, he seems like an unconventional choice to stick around the team beyond the Hela arc — what motivated you to bring Pip to X-Factor?

David: I've always liked him, he wasn't really doing anything else at the moment, and I thought he had a good New York feel.

Nrama: Rahne — she's been pregnant for a while and mentioned at the end of #213 that gestation period would be a short one. Given that, should we expect to see the blessed (?) event sometime in the (very?) near future?

David: Her pregnancy is also going to be addressed right around #220...the same time that Darwin is coming back. Coincidence? Not at all.

Nrama: And on that line of questioning, one thing that always sticks out to me about X-Factor is how much it's stuck to its core cast, which I think makes it pretty unique. Everyone from the first incarnation of the comic (the Madrox miniseries) is still around years later; so are the characters added when it became the X-Factor ongoing. A few have been added, some have rotated in and out and Rahne was out of the book for a good while, but for the most part the cast has stayed much more constant than a typical mainstream superhero team comic, where frequent upheaval is the norm. How important is that consistency in this comic?

David: If the readers aren't invested in the characters, then nothing else matters. "X-Men" is about the X-Men, and the make-up of the team can constantly shift. But X-Factor is really about these particular people, and the consistency is extremely important.

I've always thought X-Factor Investigations would have made a great TV series. A superhuman detective agency would be great to watch on television every week.

Ok. PAD has stated that Trip will be back. He also said that Lyla & Shatterstar will be dealt with. What you need to understand is that Pad takes his time with these thing. Also Wolfbane ate her Stepfather while with X-Force.

If you have tears, prepare to share them now. For, as X-Factor and the Black Cat battles the S.C.A.R. in a desperate attempt to save J. Jonah Jameson--yes, THAT J. Jonah Jameson--one of our heroes lies dying, and survival isn't looking too likely.

I assumed she was some sort of cyborg. She's shooting bullets from her fingers and even one of her friends has metal skin. She might be able to survive a bullet to the head.

As for Guido, I think it might've been a combination of the bullet to the chest (it looks a little off from his heart) and the kinetic energy he absorbed when he caught the robot.

But even with the help of THE PACK, will Wolfsbane and her baby survive the ordeal? And considering some believe the baby to be the harbinger of the end of the world, do we even want them to?
