I think of JM DeMatteis as a great writer of solo acts, like Spider-Man and Batman. I wouldn’t have pegged him to write X-Factor.
This annual brings back Professor Power. He’s ’90s buff now. Not much of an explanation for why he’s not still dead after USAgent literally beat his face until his heard stopped in Captain America #338.
But the significant part of this annual is that we learn Haven doesn’t actually have powers–she is pregnant, and her child gives her power.
She’s actually more of a host body–the fetus insider her, which she says was gestating for years, will end up being Adversary.
There’s some pin-ups.
