All-New X-Factor is an ongoing comic book series published by Marvel Comics which debuted in January 2014, as part of the All-New Marvel NOW! event and a relaunch of X-Factor.[1]

Publication History[edit]

Focusing on a new iteration of the X-Factor superhero team, the series is written by Peter David and is a follow up to his previous book, X-Factor vol. 3, whose incarnation of X-Factor was a private investigation company. The opening storyline, which continues events from issue #260 of the previous series, sees a return to the corporate-sponsored version of the team that was the initial concept when the first version of X-Factor debuted in 1986, and initially featured six team members; Polaris, Quicksilver, Gambit, Danger, Warlock and Cypher.[2][3] All New X-Factor was cancelled after 20 issues due to low sales.[4]

Fictional Team Biography[edit]

Critical reception[edit]

Peter David's writing of Quicksilver earned the character a 2014 @ssie award from Ain't It Cool News. AICN's Matt Adler commented that David writes the character best, and that the "arrogant, impatient speedster" made the title worth following.[5]
