This thread is for all things Madrox and Madrox related:
This is Jamie Madrox, Shaolin Monk, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., Playa of Playas, Ambiguously Gay, Multiple Man.
Madrox has the ability to create "duplicates" of himself. The duplicates have some level of autonomy from Madrox creating a complex psychological condition, although Madrox is outwardly joking and friendly.
Madrox has generally been considered a mutant. However, unlike most mutants whose mutant powers emerge during adolescence, Madrox exhibits his gifts from the day he was born. As a result, in recent issues of X-Factor, there has been some discussion as to whether or not he is a mutant or something altogether different.
Originally a lab assistant of genetic researcher Moira MacTaggert, Madrox joined the 1990s-era Pentagon-sponsored mutant team X-Factor where writer Peter David did much to flesh out his character. Currently, Madrox is the leader of the detective agency X-Factor Investigations in a new David-written X-Factor series.
He is one of the most intresting characters in comics. Here is your suggested reading,
The miniseries MadroX was released in late 2004, it was penned by Peter David, the man who essentially created the Jamie Madrox we all know and love today. The series focuses on the nature of Jamie's powers, and shows how each of his dupes aren't the automatons you might think they are, some of them even suprise Jamie himself.
You can buy it here:Link to Amazon
The ongoing series X-Factor stars most of the cast of the original X-Factor and is written by the same man, Peter David. It is one of the best books on the market and has featured some amazing art. Jamie Madrox leads X-Factor Investigations, a detective agency in Mutant Town that attempts to help the victims of Decimation. You can buy the first story arc in trade form here: Link to Amazon
and come Feburary you can buy the second here: Link to Amazon
The series is still ongoing so you can also pick up the singles at your local comic shop.
This is where it all started. Written by Peter David(Sense a pattern?), it is where the modern version of Jamie Madrox spawned along with his cohorts in X-Factor. It is a very, very, very
good read which was suprising considering it was released in the era of hell we call the 90's. You can buy the "Essential" X-Factor here: Amazon Link
There you have it friends, discuss all of your Multiple Man/X-Factoring needs.
EDIT: At the request of Geebs, I fixed the link.
maybe shrink them down, hide them in a url tag
Are the X-Men going to have to boot out Nightcrawler now? Start a club with Madrox and Leech? And I'm sure there's other examples of pre-puberty mutants.
You owe it to yourself to read it.
To the OP, I like the suggested reading you added. :^:
I think I actually have that old 90's comic tucked away somewhere.
Are XFactor and XMen related, 'cause, y'no
They are mostly mutants.
They're a different type of mutant, but mutants just the same, just like early man was a different type of human.
HOWEVER, David then adds,
You know what that is awsome.
That is the best train of thought I have ever heard, and makes comeplete sense, that is how evolution works, it doesent just "leap" foward, it gradually changes.
I really like this train of thought he takes, i want to have man babies with Peter David. For Captain Marvel alone.
And it was still the best book I picked up on Wednesday.
Peter David has written so many of my favorite series.
Son of M was the best thing to come out of House of M as well.
The harder the rain, honey, the sweeter the sun.
Why was Helen Keller a bad driver?
shes a woman!
Too bad about all the civilian casualties.
You know the ones.
Don't try to deny it.
