X-FACTOR #79 – June 1992

Rhapsody in Blue
Credits: Peter David (writer), Jim Fern (pencils), Al Milgrom (inks), Michael Heisler (letters), Glynis Oliver (colors)

Quicksilver and Madrox investigate a mutant schoolteacher accused of murder in Maine. The mutant, Rhapsody, uses her musical powers to convince Madrox of her innocence. Meanwhile, an unknown assailant attacks Polaris.

I Love The ‘90s
Guido is still dating Sean Young, and she comes to his door wearing a Catwoman outfit. This is a reference to a bizarre celebrity scandal in 1991.

X-Factor continues with straightforward stories and enjoyable character interactions. Quicksilver and Madrox play off each other well, and Peter David is still finding interesting uses of their powers. Jim Fern’s fill-in art fits in with Stroman’s work and looks nice. My only complaint is that Wolfsbane’s incident from #76 is still being ignored.
