Why does Cable have that long mechanical arm? I thought Hope cured him of the TO virus and he was back to normal?

Posted by DADDY_XERO

why does Cable have a robot arm and an eye patch. I'm pretty sure Hope cured/restored him at the end of X-sanction.

Also, i will prob be getting this

Posted by DADDY_XERO

@mattwing87: your post wasn't visible when i started typing. lol. great minds and all that. :)

Cable and Forge are awesome! However, I'm not sure if I like their look in this preview. Time will tell I guess.

Posted by Tellumo

Wasn't 'Forge' insane & then blew himself up?

Edited by Dernman

I'm liking Colossus's new costume. Hopefully he lost the Juggernaut's power. Dr Nemesis also look has improved IMO.

I think the robotic arm and eye patch is because even though he was cured the virus damages his body so greatly that this is the result.

This looks like an interesting book.

ah forge. why are you back??

Posted by zackattack529

why didn't Comicvine put up the Thunderbolts??

it was announced not to long ago with a cool cover and everything

Posted by ALittleTooRaph

This looks awesome!! Cable in the lead! Forge is back! Domino in a key team role! This seems like a good fit for Colossus after his "Phoenossonaut" days! And I'm loving that Dr. Nemesis redesign! Finally, something that interests me about Marvel NOW!

I just checked the final issue of x-sanction, Hope not only fully removes all T/O virus, she completely restores his body. No cybernetics, 2 eyes. a couple of cool lookin scars. lol

I love how marvel keeps everything flowing smoothly from 1 story to the next :/

Posted by ALittleTooRaph

I'm a fan of Larroca! Glad to see him on an X-book!

Posted by Michiel76

Hmm i'm divided between "if it ain't broke than why fix it" (i like the current x-force series and apparently i'm not the only one)
and on the other hand i like the idea of a group of mutants being on the run and hunted by the avengers. When the x-men where outlaws (the time in australia was awesome) i liked them better than they are now with their own island and such.

Posted by EdwardWindsor

Colossus was quite vocal against xforce wasn't he ?. Weird, will be quite a change from uncanny.

Guys, you can really stop freaking out about the arm. If you click on the image to make it bigger you can see that he still has his normal arm, you can see the fist there underneath the robotic extension. The robotic arm is just a piece of equipment, and it makes sense too as Cable has long had essentially a metal shield there so he would want to keep one there as his style would be based around exposing that side.

As for the eyepatch, my guess is that it is probably some from of tech as well. With Forge on the team it is to be expected to see all kinds of odds and ends hanging about.

Posted by Mercy_

Forge is back from the dead?

I'll probs be reading this.

Posted by Mercy_

And what the hell did they do to Dr. Nemesis? :(

Posted by k4tzm4n

Dr. Nemesis looks like Kabal (Mortal Kombat) and Fantomex had a baby. And yes, the end result looks quite awesome.

Posted by notoriousmistersims

yes :)

Posted by cyberchop979

Frakkin. Awesome.

Posted by Arkhamc1tizen

wonderd where colossus would be

Posted by Grim

How many teams are there that can fight the battles no one else can fight? And why cant others fight them?

I understand having a grey-area incognito team to do things that the very public teams cant, and i understand a space team, and maybe even a time travel/dimension hoping team. But i feel like both Marvel and DC make these teams that all just do political espionage crap... "and no one else can".

...i think someone else can.

Edited by antiwhipped

Colossus and Forge! Now if they actually use Forge and Cable's tech to full potential and have Piotr stop jobbing that would be nice ;). (Dr Nemesis's tech too, not familiar with him)

Posted by Mucklefluga

No thanks i'll pass, the team doesn't appeal to me but the little description slightly does tho

Posted by AgeofHurricane

Forge is back ? And no Wolverine, Emma, Cyclops or Magneto in sight ?



Posted by JayMar89

ahh marvel and dc why are you doung this to me thanks to these two im gonna be broke

Posted by evilvegeta74

Hell yeah! Go Colossus!

Posted by GothamRed

man, cable sucks at dying, he's done it twice in the past 3 years and is still going

Posted by sj_esposito

I wonder if in ten years we'll look back on images like the one above the same way we look at those from the 90s now...

Posted by ogg927

@MSchiwal: Ok thanks for the info. I was worried at first because Hope did heal him at the end of X-Sanction. I had NO idea that Forge had died? They really need to stop killing characters and then bringing them back that's lame. I'm glad that Forge is there to add diversity to the group. I'm glad that Cable is back.

Posted by KRYPTON

"They will battle the threats no one else can." Thought this is why Wolverine's X-Force was formed?

Marvel Now! and everything is new.

Looks interesting be picking it up when released.

Edited by GreenFuse

This. I want this.

Also, I'm the same height as Forge. /flex

Posted by sora_thekey

I'm sure there will be an explination to Forge's resureccion, Colossus sudden support for the "kill first ask questions later", Dr. Nemesis' new look and Cable's eye pach and robot arm. Everybody calm down and lets wait for the book in December....

A book I will be picking up by the way.

Posted by TheCowman

Am I the only one who keeps feeling like I'm back in the '90s recently?

Why does Domino look like she's auditioning for "The Ring"? And what did they do to Dr. Nemesis? We go from a simple, streamlined yet iconic look to yet another "badass" in a trenchcoat and body armor?

Please Marvel, please.... I had to put up with the New 52's obliteration of some of my favorite characters. Do I really need to go through another "grim 'n gritty" faze from you?

Posted by Vincie_Pooh

I wonder if we will see Bishop in the series... SHOOT! Can we get Bishop back in #MarvelNOW. Black and Orange... reminds me of the SF Giants. hahaha Bay Area colors. I'm loving it. Can't wait to read. Let's hope they add more to this team.

Posted by JonesDeini

Hate the costumes, highly dislike Cables arm/eye patch (really?), love the team, abhor the Nemesis design. If it ain't broke don't fool with it.

Posted by AgeofHurricane

Heads up: Forge was never "dead" in the first place. He was just got caught up in some 'splosion but even that wasn't confirmed. He's Forge, after all.

Posted by CircularLogic

The designs are great, good blend of 90's but not in a ridiculous Liefeld fashion. Doc Nemesis, Cable and Collosus are a great line-up, but I have to say, doesn't it look like the overall message of Uncanny X-force right now supposed to be that Black Ops assassinations aren't the best way to go? Still, of the three series announced so far for the "second wave" (Thunderbolts, Avengers Arena and X-Force) this one has the most promise

Posted by Nefilim927

Really glad to see Colossus take a more prominent role, I feel like the way he is being written in the current "X-Men" run might lead in to him working with X-Force. Almost fell off my chair when I saw Dr. Nemesis, I think he's a great, under used, smart assed character. Loved when he had the starfish stuck to him during the "X-Club" run.

Posted by scuzz2.0

this looks like a return to the old sucky X-force! I'm honestly surprised they didn't get Leifeld to do it. Why would they fuck with one of there most critically and financially successful books?

Larroca sucks! photo referenced Photoshopped bullshit! sawyer as Tony Stark? Fuck off!

Edited by CircularLogic

Also, is everyone here part machine/metal? Hopefully they don't go up against anyone that controls magnets or electricity, or 4/5ths of the team is taken right out.

@Grim: true one
Posted by MadeinBangladesh

NICE!!!!!!!! i'm not fimilar with some charcters but lookd awesome

Posted by Crackdown

Dr Nemesis went from Dieselpunk to Cyberpunk I see

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

So this is Secret Six but with mutants? 
No Deadpool? 
No Wolverine??? 
OK I'm in!

Posted by JoseDRiveraTCR7

Seems interesting. I like Dr. Nemesis' new costume. I don't know why they brought back Forge of all people. I never met someone who was a strong fan of his. Maybe Hopeless is going to do something interesting with him. It's a shame that Cyclops isn't on the team. I wanted him to be on the same team/book as Cable.

Posted by Dernman

I wonder who is going to be on the other X-Force team.

Posted by Emperormeister734

Wait wasn't Forge dead

Posted by NuclearLife

Love the team, hate the costumes.
