Posted by wmwadeii

I'm excited. If I could pic a team with my favorite mutants, this title has them all.

My thoughts:

  • Why does Cable have a nick fury eyepatch? And why the anime mech arm?
  • Colossus looks great, but why no juggernaut helmet?
  • I like the color scheme for the team. The addition of the orange works with the gray/black of X-Force.
  • Forge looks good except for the wrestling boots.
  • Poor, poor Dr. Nemesis. You were iconic and unique, and now you're a knockoff GI Joe villain.

His arm & eye had the TO virus without it there is nothing their so prosthetic/mech arm & eye patch is needed

Colossus doesn't wear that helmet all the time. when he wants too or when he gets pissed it materializes

He is adjusting his weight to one foot, or the right side of his body. If he was standing completely straight up, he'd be about 7'5".

Cable "This my team! So everyone has to dress like they're from the future! AND! Halloween is the theme....ok? GO!"

Posted by JMLG

nice roster, glad we finally know what happens to Collosus after avx and it will be interesting to see how he deals with his sister still bein with Scott & Emma, but it makes me sick to stomach that Uncanny X-Force will be over...

good to see Forge & Domino getting some limelight again tho

Posted by JMLG

and wasnt Cable supposed to be a member of Uncanny Avengers too?!

Posted by Crimsonlord53

So an mutant A team?

Hmmmm...... Maybe

Damn. I'm enjoying the current 'adjective-less' X-Men team of Storm, Pixie, Psylocke, Domino and Colossus; Brian Wood and David Lopez are crafting a fantastic run. I knew it wouldn't last, but it still sucks knowing it'll end.

Yup. Looks like the Domino/Colossus business going on there, somewhat bleeds into here.

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 agree! Heck, anything X-related without Wolverine is good to me!

@Jonny_Anonymous said:

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

^THIS^ So hard! I completely agree!

Posted by Zoch81

I dont think I will picking this up any more just not feeling the writer I dont like any new members of team which was shame was enjoying X-Force with current writer and current members of team but least it had good run I guess time to move onto the Uncanny Avengers.

@mattwing87 said:

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

i think is some sort of gauntlet ...i hope so.

Posted by Rickbarry

@Zoch81: That's too bad, but you always have to keep an open mind about new writers/characters. Who knew the new Uncanny X-force was going to be good? I remember people having issues when they removed warpath, x-23 etc, but people enjoy the series a great deal.

Colossus wearing braces? No thanks. What the hell has the cool Dr. Nemesis done, he looks ridiculous. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, dumb ass designers.

Posted by Zoch81

@Rickbarry: That is true I will keep eye on it but new team and writer dont have much appeal to me beside may work out better for me drop this and add new uncanny avengers book.

Posted by brucecapell

Wonder if the artist is going to eventually hate drawing these new costumes, they are very detail esp Cable

Posted by Ouija

thought forge was dead

Posted by Sifighter

Well this could be good if its written right and I would like to see how people react to colossus after AvX

Posted by Eclipse-32

Most unexpected, not sure what to make of it.

Posted by NXH

Why Salvador Larroca?? He's terrible.

Apart from Cable and maybe Colossus, this is an awful lineup.

Suck Deadpool isn't on this. Yes. I know he's in Thunderbolts.

Posted by Aeroman

@Dernman: that's a good theory

Posted by Darkmount1

WHAT???? OH COME ON!!!

First they turn Colossus into the new Juggernaut, THEN they make him insane with god-like power (and strain his relationship with Illyana further), and now THIS??? This should NOT be happening to my #2 favorite Marvel hero (and my #1 favorite X-Men character). This just downright stinks!!!

Also, WHY is Forge there, and why overhaul Dr. Nemesis's look? I liked the retro look he had.

so what is happening to uncanny x-force

it will still be around thought it's getting a bit of a revamp

Thank god! I was starting to have heart palpatations lol, im interested in reading this but only as long as Uncanny X Force exists and dosent get replaced.

Yes indeed! Hard to find an X-book without him! Can't wait for this!

All just your individual opinions. Larroca is far from terrible. The lineup is incredible. I'm glad Deadpool isn't in this book... all my opinions.

Posted by time

I'm gonna love this title. Cable back with the X-Force, about time as well. He reunited with Domino too, that's pretty cool. Not thrilled about Colossus being on the team, I would of prefer Warpath. I wish Boom Boom was on the team. So what does mean for Cable and Hope, will he still be her protector. What about Uncanny X-force, will that still be a around. Bring on November and December, can't wait. Jean and Cable are back, amazing.

@scuzz2.0 said:

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!

Did you even read the old X-Force?, from the 90's. they were amazing. They are better than some of the X-Men teams and titles today.

Posted by TheMtVernonKid82

Cable's arm belongs on a Gundam. But this looks good . Plus Domino and Colossus cool. Glad Colossus doesn't have the Juggernaut powers he was a junkie with those powers.

Posted by GBrutality

why does dr nemesis need a costume? he's always been very behind the scenes. and it looks ridiculous.

why are they being announced as deadly? that's dumb. also, why would they be hunted by the avengers especially since half the time is comprised of mutants?

don't ruin x-force's name after it's been so good these past few years.

however, the new costume for colossus and his placement on this team are pretty cool.

Posted by Nathaniel_Christopher

Always glad to see Cable, and I hope they fix Forge's character. That Ghost Box thing was just plain awful.

Posted by the_fallen11

Cable. Yes. Dr. Nemesis' new look. Yes. I will be getting this. Fo Sho.

Yep. I'm entitled to my own opinion. Just like you and everybody else.

Might have to buy this.

Colossus looks friggin awesome.

Posted by Gregomasta

Team metal people.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

X-Force is a "group of outlaws trying to save the world"? Uh, Suicide Squad much? But it is great Cable's back.

Posted by Howlverine

Gotta get this book. No question. Marvel NOW! is shaping up to be awesome.

Posted by mtrakos

Cable looks terrible. Trade the russian for proudstar I'm in.

Maybe coz he hasnt used real left arm muscles since he was a baby? That mechanical arm may be just a brace for now.

Plus, the artist probably thought it looks cool... which it aint.

I'm intrigue by this, so i'll give it a shot.

But please... when it comes to the costumes... sometimes LESS IS MORE.

i'd hate to see a return to "Liefeld" style aesthetics

Posted by Thunderscream

GO GO GADGET ARM!

Posted by kal-el09

Anything with Cable is automatically cool! So I'll definitely be adding this to my pull

Posted by secondfallen616

Wow, this is gonna be so awesome......thats like a dream team really, only question i have is, when did Nemesis become a mutant lol?

My pull list is getting smaller on the DC side if they keep rolling out good stuff like this (please, please, please don't screw this up Marvel). I wonderm if thats the real reason why DC's doing all kinds of shuffling of teams and books and pushing for crossovers and rushing plots along before they were prepared to. Seems like they are a little scared, and they should be.

Love this site so much, its the only site that really matters when you, get down to it, at the end of the day, bottomline, come hell or highwater, thanks for doing what you all do so well.

Posted by Namor1987

I've been reading X-Force since Wolverine recreated the team & inted to read this series. The uniforms look bada$$. Colossus appears to have lost the Phoenix Force. Dr. Nemesis looks cool along with Domino

Actually, its hard to find any MARVEL book without wolverine these days...
