New Comic Day points

This week’s titles: X-Factor, X-Force, Mighty Avengers
- I finally have my compromise on X-Force. Take it for exactly what it is and don’t worry about the bigger picture and it’s actually not that bad.
- Larry Strohman’s return on X-Factor after over 15 years since his last run has left me uninspired. Of course, I wasn’t huge on him back then either.
- I couldn’t tell you which of the Secret Invasion stories happened in Mighty or New Avengers. The books are once again on hold while the big story goes on.
- The majority of the opening arc of X-Force doesn’t really need the team in it. Take them out and just toss in someone else hacking off Angel’s wings, and you arrive at the same point. Just saying.
- Have to give it to the X-Teams to going back to basics with most of the books. Focus the entire line and reestablish things like “villains” so 3/4 of the titles aren’t running around aimlessly.
