X-Force goes back to basics with Cable at the helm and a mission to take out threats to mutants the world over.
The Marvel Universe is a different place than it once was – and mutants are in more danger than ever before. Deadly threats are everywhere, and it’ll take a squad unlike any other to shut them down before they happen. S.H.I.E.L.D. has it’s Secret Avengers, Britain has MI-13 – and now Mutantkind has X-Force!
“X-Force returns to form as the black ops team that isn’t afraid to get its hands dirty protecting the species,” says Axel Alonso, Editor-in-Chief. “But this time, X-Force isn’t looking to keep its existence a secret – they want to send a loud-and-clear message to the world that the Mutant Nation is not to be messed with.”
In this game of no-holds barred, superhuman black-ops – it’s kill or be killed. And with veteran X-Man Cable at the helm – Psylocke, Fantomex, Marrow, and more are going to ensure that Mutants have a stake in the future of the Marvel Universe – by any means necessary!
If this is, in any significant way, a return to form for X-Force to the way it was in the 1990’s, then mark me down. Seriously, the tone of that book was classic and the grittier feel (to say, X-Men) was noticeable and a very cool change. Marvel looks to have put together a pretty cool team too with the likes of Cable (of course), Psylocke and Marrow (there’s a blast from the past), and the release mentions “more”, so I’m hoping a few more not-so-merry mutants from the team’s pre-millennial days might show up.
Look for X-Force (love that they went the no adjective route, by the way) #1 to drop onto the racks this coming February form the team of Si Spurrier and Rock-He Kim. Now to keep those fingers crossed for that X-Force movie…
