All-New X-Factor #15 (AXIS Tie-In) Review
Okay, AXIS is in full swing and right now we’re getting a tie-in in the form of All-New X-Factor #15. Who will fall to the hate-plague running rampant around world on our corporate team? Read on and find out!
The story opens with the president getting ready to start a nuclear war with Russia and abandons his family at the White house, where they would likely return fire. See what happens when you don’t vote in Marvel Universe? Anyway the soldier carrying the nuclear football trips and when they’re in the air they discover the briefcase holding it only contains magazines. So while that poor bastard is getting the Guantanamo treatment we skip back to the scene and see that Quicksilver stole it and left the poor bastard to suffer.
The Serval team is working overtime to try and stop Washington from burning. Unfortunately an implant that Warlock gave Gambit burns out and he has to go replace it while Georgia, Luna, and Cypher deal with a riot when the police try to kill Luna, upon which Quicksilver saves her and knocks them out. Oh, and Georgia wants the uniform.
Back with Gambit, he tries to kill Lorna, who states she doesn’t mind if he goes after her brother and sister, but she draws the line when it comes to her. He… really kinda does her up. If it weren’t for Warlock she would have died, but he gets the implant back in to stop the hatred and Gambit apologizes.
Back at the base they are spared from the hate wave by the barrier, but since the nuclear football has a GPS they get found out. The president sends Sentinels to deal with them as the comic ends. Figures.
Okay, review time.
I’m not really sure how much value this has because it drew away from the last issue with Wanda outing Quicksilver as a mole. But Marvel just can’t seem to help but do tie-ins, so it’s a moot point anyway . 3 out of 5.
