X-Factor #211

Overall: This issue takes us away from the Rictor/Wolfsbane storyline and brings us back to Las Vegas, where the rest of X-Factor are battling against the minions of Hela. Madrox feels responsible for allowing Hela to capture Pip the Troll, and as such has been trying to get her attention. Unfortunately for Madrox, his plan falls apart when Longshot and Shatterstar decide to attack Hela's minions, leading to Hela getting mad and sending more(A LOT more)dead vikings after the team. Before X-Factor is massacred by the dead vikings, Thor flies over, halting Hela's corpse corps in their tracks. Madrox explains his plight to Thor and asks for the Thunder God's help, with Thor responding that he'd think about it, ending this issue.

Meh. I'm enjoying the Rictor/Wolfsbane story WAY more than this one, so I was a bit saddened to see that the Vegas/Pip/Hela story dominated this issue. The action was pretty good, the art was fine and there were a few funny scenes(as you'd expect from a Peter David written comic), but I just don't care about Pip nor Hela. I could expand upon that and say I just don't care about Asgardians period! Here's hoping the next issue ends the Vegas portion of the story, or better yet focuses back on the Rictor/Wolfsbane stuff.

Score: 6 out of 10.Now THAT is a lot of dead vikings!
