I loved this issue and the series so far. Also never bad to see Cheung draw X-Factor, and looks like he'll be working on the X-Men next issue.
I do hope there's no ill effect on the guinea pig Rictor, and I am curious how much say PAD had in the story, if any. Obviously the series doesn't wrap for another 6+ months, but I wonder when the effect will kick in on X-Factor proper?
Since this series is mean to take a while, is it set ahead of current Marvel time? Captian America is back in his costume, so is this Cyclops X-men line up post schism?
