As Mentioned in Episode 202 – Rhapsody in Blue (and Gold) June 24, 2018 Miles 3 comments Listen to the podcast here. Art by David Wynne. Wanna buy the original? Drop him a line! Man, that cover. (X-Factor #79) Learning at super-speed! It doesn’t work… (X-Factor #79) …until it does. (X-Factor #79) Pietro Maximoff: not just a jerk, but a smart jerk. (X-Factor #79) Only in X-Factor. (X-Factor #79) I had the same dream! (X-Factor #79) You got your 90s in my 90s! (Did you ever feel like a page was written and drawn especially for 10-year-old you?) (X-Factor #80) Those Stroman crowd scenes, though. (X-Factor #80) I’m pretty sure that’s not how you fix a broken jaw. Then again, in a universe where Jack Kirby designed most early technology, I guess all bets are off. (X-Factor #80) And sometimes, when I’m feeling frisky… (X-Factor #80) This is pretty much what happened the one time I tried to play a harmonica. (X-Factor #80) Not only did the Genegineer lock Rahne into her transitional wolf form and genetically bond her to a guy she’d barely met, but he made her really bad at poker! Dammit, dude. (X-Factor #80) “And after this fight, Archangel and I have a shopping date!” (X-Factor #80) Yep, totally a Sam Keith design. (X-Factor #80) There are so many ways to make Havok’s powers look cool. (X-Factor #81) I feel pretty bad for everyone here. Well, not Pietro. (X-Factor #81) When Guido isn’t busy referencing Murphy Brown, dude can be pretty scary. (X-Factor #81) Most people think the ubiquity of cell phones was responsible for the death of the pay phone. Nope: it was this guy. (X-Factor #81) Respect, man. Wait… it was all a trick? Okay, different respect.(X-Factor #81) To be honest, I’m just including this one for Titan Up the Defense listeners. (X-Factor #81) NEXT TIME: Man, screw you, Mikhail.

It’s been mentioned that Strong Guy joined XFactor for the money. Do we ever get a sense of how much the going rate for a member of a super team is? I know that the traditional answer for where the X-Men’s funding comes from is the fortunes of wealthy members (Xavier, Warren, Emma, etc), but what about teams like XFactor? How much money does it actually take to convince someone to join a team like this? Obviously the answer depends on the character’s identity as a hero, commitment to a cause, and history with their teammates, but it seems there should be some sort of market rate.
Googling hasn’t helped much since creators typically keep things vague enough to avoid giving a concrete answer to this question, but there’s got to be something out there to give clues.
I imagine a high-level government field operative would get paid quite handsomely.
I feel like Stroman crowd scenes inherited “Alack Sinner” greatest panels by José Muñoz.
