I don't read X Factor but the summary for this issue has me intrigued. Shatterstar has been a character I liked since X Force. So I'm curious as to what the secret of himand Longshot is. If anyone has read this issue then please let me know. And no I don't want to buy the issue. I already have a huge enough pull list. Plus I already have a feeling I know what the answer is. It was rumored years ago that Longshot was Shatterstar's dad.

My guess: They're revealed to be the same guy. Laughing

Just read this issue, funny enough.

Here is the wiki summary.

During the "Hell on Earth War" storyline, Shatterstar and Rictor are blasted by the God of Hell, Mephisto, and appear to die, but are in fact sent into Mojoworld's relative past—to the era of Shatterstar's arrival in Mojoworld, as shown in the final X-Factor story arc, "The End of X-Factor". Rictor and the audience learn that Shatterstar is the only Mojoworld rebel who was not created by Arize the Creator, as he mysteriously appeared from the sky one day. Arize then used Shatterstar's genetic material to create Longshot, making Shatterstar Longshot's father. Mojo later attacks Arize's sanctuary, leading Shatterstar to time-teleport him and Rictor. They arrive later in Mojoworld's history, at a time when Dazzler and Longshot are married and fighting a war against Mojo. Dazzler goes into labor, and gives birth to a young Shatterstar, who Shatterstar explains to Rictor he will deliver to the future of Mojoworld to be raised by the people that raised him, but not before he erases Dazzler and Longshot's memories of their having a child.[15]

So in other words, it's a further convoluted mess. Peter David's run has been a train wreck. His 90's run was way better.

So they are pretty much the same guy, too funny.

Let me see if I've got this straight. Longshot was created from Shatterstar's DNA making him Shatterstar's son. Then Longshot and Dazzler have a baby Shatterstar making him Shatterstar's dad. Does this mean Longshot is his own Grandpa?Ooh Confused

Quality. Consistency. Variety. Reliable. Fair. Friendly

It reminds me of the age old question. What came first? The chicken or the egg? So confusing.

I kinda like it. Although confusing, it answers the question without really creating more questions. Also Dazzler's lost baby from a long time ago. My only hope is that it stays this way and some other writer doesn't comes along and retcon it.

But I wonder where Shatterstar goes from here? is he forever stuck living this continuous loop of being born, travel 100 years into the future, get cloned, and then travel back in time to take his baby self into the future? Silly

I hated the explanation. Peter David has ruined Shatterstar, Strong Guy and Darwin in this run.

I liked it. Mojoverse has always been an annoying, convoluted plot device, so why not have Longshot and Shatterstar have a convoluted origin? Besides, it makes sense in the context of everything going on. I jumped on X-Factor with Regenesis and really enjoyed it.

Plus, it's hard to say Peter David "ruined" Shatterstar or Strong Guy since they were completely irrelevant and unused. So, they could have been mired in obsolescence or actually be used and used well. Darwin on the other hand... Yeah, that was a waste of a character with great potential.

Go back and read the first 24 or so issues of that X-Factor run if you liked the post ReGenesis stuff. I think this series started out excellent and got progressively worse. Granted, Star and Guido weren't being used, but for fans like me of the original PAD X-Factor that went on to get even better under DeMatteis and the original X-Force, this was just a complete retcon of what made those characters fun to begin with. As bad as he ruined Darwin, I find it worse with the other two.

But seriously check out those early X-Factor issues, great stuff. Even the Madrox mini series by PAD was pretty awesome.
