Haven: her very name implies a restful place of peace from the troubles of a world where mutants and humans are at each others' throats. But to the U.S. government and most of X-Factor, she's a terrorist willing to sacrifice lives and property to bring about Nirvana. But when Havok, Madrox, Big Guy, Forge and Wolfsbane crash Haven's latest lecture series to bring her in, it's one of their own that stands against them. Polaris takes on the rest of X-Factor to protect the woman she's come to admire.
Polaris' unpopular stance brings to head all of the mistrust and doubts that have plagued the group of government-sponsored mutants. Even Madrox, the Multiple Man, is divided among himself on how to handle Haven. Then Random shows up offering to turn the tables on those who sought Polaris' death. And that leaves the line between enemies and allies very blurred. But the final betrayal is saved for the very last panel! J.M. DeMatteis writes and Greg Luzniak pencils. A modern classic!
