COMICS: Gambit And Quicksilver Get Redesigned Costumes For Peter David's ALL-NEW X-FACTOR
X-Factor are getting a corporate makeover next year, when Polaris, Quicksilver and Gambit are headhunted by the mysterious Serval Industries to lead a corporate-funded super team. Hit the jump for details on All-New X-Factor from Peter David and Carmine Di Giandomenico!
As you can see from the cover artwork below, Gambit, Polaris and Quicksilver (along with other unrevealed members) will be getting a very different look for the "All-New Marvel NOW!" series. However, if you're a fan of the previous iteration, don't panic; it WILL still be written by Peter David. However, All-New X-Factor will deal with Jamie Madrox's decision to sell the "X-Factor" name to Serval Industries and their plans for a corporate funded team of mutants. Below, David discusses the series and the cast members who have so far been revealed. What do you think?
"So much of what happens in this country stems from corporate control and involvement. So why not expand that real world philosophy to the world of comics and have it be that a corporation is interested in expanding into super heroes? I mean, if super heroes really existed, that's probably what would happen. [Polaris] has the most potential. Which isn't to say that others from the previous title might not show up as guest cast. With Quicksilver, we're left wondering what his motivation is. Is he really motivated by brotherly concern over Polaris? Or is there more going on? And Gambit as a professional thief is there to be the one who questions everything that's going on; he's largely the reader's voice into the book."
