    Blasphemy, I know, but I was never a real fan of PAD's X-Factor apart from the Quesada and Jae Lee art issues. And Nauck's not my fave, either. I may still give this a read Because 90s Nostalgia... or just trade wait until I buy the first trade for the Nicieza and Simonsons stories.

    He has been sick and was at one point doing commissions and covers from his hospital bed. The Man Who F***ked Up Time issue 1 variant might be the most recent thing he did. I saw him at the last North Texas Comic book show in Feb 2020.

    There are a lot of Claremont stories that are interesting to do. Him writing about Magneto and Amahl Farouk's past encounter would be interesting too.

    This should be really fun. PAD's original run is still one of my favorite runs.

    That often seems to be the case, no? Back then the core titles were primarily just X-Men, X-Factor and X-Force. I can't imagine how it is now, with several titles running in tandem, you're meticulously coordinating the flow between books (e.g., character continuity (micro) and "X of Swords" (macro)) and then have to halt everything/coordinate for editorial/Marvel mandated crossovers (e.g., Empyre, King in Black) where those stories do nothing to propel your own stories forward but you participate solely to help out the broader Marvel enterprise (causing you to pause or delay your own storylines).

    Very much looking forward to this!!!

    I'd love to see some more arc by PAD after this tying up loose ends from his 2nd and 3rd X-FACTOR runs as well, but I'm not sure if the LEGENDS series is going to get into continuity more recent than the 80s and 90s or not.

    From the back issues I had growing up, once Forge takes over it seems the quality of the stories were pretty random and lackluster. Art was good. Thank God PAD came back with Investigations.

    Yeah, giving credit where credit is due, 90s X-books under Harras had for the most part a murderer's row of artists across the board including the satellite titles. On X-Factor he had the already-great Steve Epting and Jeff Matsuda doing long runs... too bad the stories weren't quite up to scratch.

    Yes, please. This is one of the biggest unexplained storyline plot points out there. I guess he was probably going to tell it further down the road in his second run but then there were the creative teams shuffling.

    I would LOVE to read that story but technically hasn't it been contradicted by subsequent stories? Jean got her TK back, Morrison said it's thanks to the Phoenix, Claremont would say it's because Betsy died and the stolen TK reverted back to Jean. But then Betsy was resurrected still possessing telekinetic powers, which she still has to this day. Sounds to me they were never anyone else's but her own.

    I'd prefer CC to tackle some forgotten Outback tale.
