I was thinking of the explaination of the way the Phallaxian males look 
like penises. Not to mention the fact itself.

I was thinking more along the lines of: a new season with a new theme 
to explore.

To be fair Marvel had painted themselves into a corner with the way 
Cyclops had abandoned his wife and child in order to get the high 
concept of the first X-Factor series to work.  To the best of my 
understanding everything that happened with clone!Maddie and Inferno 
was (a) to paint Maddie as villain so that when she was ceremoniously 
removed the readers wouldn't get too up in arms, and (b) provide 
spectacle and distraction so that people wouldn't notice so much how 
badly the storyline as a whole had been fluffed.

  Point taken. I stand corrected.
