X-Factor #209

Overall: This issue follows the X-Factor crew as they search Las Vegas for Pip the Troll, who was taken by Hela. Needless to say, hijinks and shenanigans follow. Shatterstar attacks actors who he mistook for pirates, Longshot and Layla ran around using Longshot's luck abilities to clean up at the casinos, and Jamie tried to keep everything in some semblance of sanity. Ultimately, Hela took notice of Longshot's winning streak at one of her casinos and sent a few dead vikings to take care of X-Factor.

Meh. This comic was what it was. It was okay, kind of funny, but not really anything else. I guess the story kind of advanced since X-Factor finally made contact with Hela's minions towards the end, but for the most part, this comic was a whole lot of filler. I can't help but think that X-Factor could have run into Hela's minions WAY sooner, thus giving us a bit more here, but I trust Peter David's writing implicitly, so I'm sure he's building up to something great. Or at least I hope he is...

Score: 6 1/2 out of 10.I'm not even gonna touch that sword line between Jamie and Guido...
