Meanwhile, Scott and Jean have gone to Dallas to ask questions of Freedom Force regarding Madelyne, Alex, and Baby X. This is rather fruitless: they don't know anything. They just tried to arrest them. Destiny isn't much use, either, but then again she never is: and the couple are with nothing to show for their excursion. Next stop: Omaha, apparently.

X-Factor #29-#31: Codename Infectia. Seems Legit
X-Factor #29-#31 introduces another new villain: Infectia. She can kiss people and turn them into short-lived slaves. She wants to get close to X-Factor, apparently to steal that Ship or something, and has a particular obsession with Bobby. Hank is suspicious, but in his dumbed-out state can't quite put his finger on it. There is a hilarious sequence in #31 where X-Factor's wards interrupt them as they are about to kiss, several times. Has X-Men actually had a femme fatale before? I can't think of one. Infectia isn't the deepest villain ever, but we need a bit of light in between all this grimdark, and she's, if nothing else, fun.
