Cameron Hodge is gay for Angel, has horrible costume.
So, way back when, the X-Factor was a team that combated mutant prejudice by pretending to be mutant-hunters who captured dangerous mutants, who of course they advertised as being so dangerous you needed specially-trained operatives to come in and round them up. This didn't go over well. So, Marvel did what it always does when their heroes act like idiots: Reveal it was all someone else's fault!
In this case, Cameron Hodge, the team's PR man, turned out to be a member of The Right (unfortunately, this was before Peter David's run on the title, so Hodge was never protected by the Right Guard, yuk yuk), an anti-mutant organization he created. Really, who starts an anti-mutant organization when there are already forty billion out there? On LJ, you'd get yelled at for creating a fourth Wolverine/Rogue comm.
Hodge betrayed the team and went all supervillain on them, driving Angel to pretend-suicide, kidnapping mutants for experiments, and finally kidnapping Angel's girlfriend Candy Southern, who despite the name is neither a stripper or a gay porn star.
My God. To what depths of depravity has this man sunk? Look how he eschews the adornments of his old life, the business suits, the power ties, for a concealing cloak. What dark secret could he be hiding? What terrifying visage is obscured?
His madness has twisted him into an instrument of evil. What possible face could do justice to his menace? How has he chosen to reflect his inner demons to the world? WHAT IS THE MASK THAT HAS BECOME HIS FACE?
And next up, we'll see if Spider-Man can thwart an invasion by Cameron's older brother, Marvin the Martian. "Mutants make me very angry! Very angry indeed!" Gad, I've seen more intimidating Pokemon.
Oh, and he has a demon working for him. A demon that apparently ships it.
"I can feel your cameras watching me."
There's a phrase I bet Warren has said before.
Yeah. "Discovered your secret plan." That's totally the reason.
