	Lorna tells Guido her fears about being teamed with Alex, her erstwhile lover.
Guido flirts with her.
	Val goes to Genosha to convince Alex to lead the new team, but fails even
after standing under a falling girder. Xavier arrives with Scott, lectures Alex,
and tells him Lorna will be on the team. That changes his mind, and he flies back
to Washington, taking Rahne with him.
	Pietro gets Lockjaw to transport him down from the Blue Area of the moon,
defuses a terrorist bomb, and announces his power is making him age. He joins the
team, wanting help in tracking down the evil individual who did this to him. (How
the postcard from the evil individual reached the moon is not elaborated.)

Lockjaw ports the team to the crime scene, where they finds a dead Jamie and a
live one. He is beside himself when he fails to reabsorb his dupe. He now
realizes they may have their own thoughts and feelings and be real people.
	Chalker sees them on TV and plans the destruction of all mutants (although,
with a face like that, why should he complain about green hair?)
	Lorna tries to get back together with Alex. Instead, they rescue a mother and
child from a burning building, then they kiss, which makes Rahne jealous.
	Val holds a press conference announcing the disbanding of Freedom Force and
the establishment of X-Factor. Guido picks the codename Strong Guy, and Jamie is
accused by a man in the crowd who claims to be him.

	Guido makes an impassioned statement to the press attacking labels and
prejudice against mutantkind, and makes up the term "genetically challenged."
	Chalker finishes building an exo-skeleton to combat mutants, but it doesn't
fit him.
	Lorna warns Alex not to be so serious, like his brother Scott.
	After interrogating the Jamies, they are still unable to determine which is

the primary personality. Shaffran is revealed to have the mutant power to make
others screw up, and plans to use it to become president.

stress.

the Senator, and tells the Nasty Boys be there for it. X-Factor also arrives, and
battle ensues, up and into the capitol. Shaffran reveals himself as a mutant and
flies off.
	Sinister reveals that he manipulated Shaffron into being revealed as an evil
mutant, and that he wants Alex and Lorna to be acclaimed as heroes. He suggests

papers.
	Chalker, to avenge his brother Vic's death (iss. 77) has made himself Number
One Fan. With razor-sharp fan blades for hands, he is unable to open the door,
