Creative Team for New UNCANNY X-FORCE Announced

Looks like we'll be having two separate X-Force titles.

Sam Humphries and Ron Garney. Boom!

Remember that teaser, KILLERS that had their name on it? It turns out Humphries and Garney are the new creative team for UNCANNY X-FORCE.

You might be saying, "Wait a minute, we just heard last Friday about the CABLE AND X-FORCE series." Looks like we'll have two completely different X-Force titles as part of Marvel NOW!

This team will feature Psylocke along with Storm, Puck and Spiral. More characters will be joining within the first few issues. We'll have more on this shortly.

Update

Our interview with Sam on UNCANNY X-FORCE can be found HERE.

The next few months are going to leave me with an empty wallet :)

Sounds like this will be quite different than the current run.

Posted by theTimeStreamer

storm, puck and spiral?! EPIC FAIL!! my god i have never seen a more uninteresting roster. next toad will be joining.

Posted by SC

Puck and Spiral being on the same team is what I have wanted since I was Four Years Old! Thank you Marvel - NOW - I can die whole. NOW if Psylocke and Spiral have a sword fight in issue 1 and reduce Storm's hair to a mohawk, then Adam X, Shatterstar and Zorro join team...

The new team have quite the shoes to fill. Though I said that last time there was a creative team change. I guess we shall see how it goes.

Is Puck even that good of a character for a team?

Posted by PrinceIMC

Storm, Spiral, Puck and Psylocke. That is kinda random but I'll read it for my man Eugene.

Posted by neiliusprime

not sure about this....

Posted by TheAmazingImmortalMan

this is a very wierd roster.

Posted by Mutie199

sorry but i cant see storm as a killer or suitable for being an X-Force member. The other characters except psylocke are of no interest to me. i am seriously considering not following this series but i guess i will read the first issues and decide

Posted by Rabbitearsblog

First Colossus now Storm? I wonder what's going on...

Posted by Pacperson

All storm did was complain about X-force...so now she's joining, possibly leading X-force...ok?

Wolverine may be unconventional and polarizing, but you can't argue with his success.

@SC: i see what u did there. but no dice. wolverine also has claws. check mate, mate.

But...but...Storm isnt a killer.

Edited by MadeinBangladesh

I'm only excited about the Thunderbolts.
This might be an all female team.

I really can only think of one thing when I read this: "What? Whaaat?" and not in a positive sense.

First off: Psylocke is the only remaining character of the previous X-Force. Which is odd, since she's shown on several occasions that she wanted to leave X-Force because she didn't believe it its ideals/methods anymore. So possibly X-Force's ideals/methods will change completely? But then it wouldn't be X-Force anymore, would it?

Secondly: Storm on X-Force. This alone made me frown my eyebrows. There's no way I can see Storm working on a team like X-Force. I even remember that she strongly opposed Wolverine's merry band of killers when she learned of its existence.

Puck and Spiral also seem like odd choices, although I don't know enough about these two to actually pass judgement.

Then there's also the new creative team. The art, I think, will be satisfactory. But the writing? I admit I haven't read anything written by this new writer. But I did notice that he's a relative newbie. Which is odd to me, because Marvel's giving the reins of one of their most successful (in sales numbers as well as positive critics) titles to a newbie, who's following up after being written by one of Marvel's most talented writers.

@theTimeStreamer:  True but everyone has claws... metaphorically and Wolverine is still a midget that bounces around more than something really bouncy and bouncy. Shucky Ducky Quack Quack.

@SC: you have made a powerful enemy this day. bub.

Posted by webofthornns

I've always loved Puck...but on Alpha Flight, not an X-Team of any kind

Posted by ThanosIsMad

Storm did nothing but dismiss the entire concept of X-Force when she first heard about it, now she's on the team?

Yeah, that makes plenty of sense.

Posted by Cavemold

Too much force marvel.. PASS.

Posted by Timandm

Oh, when the hell did Spiral become a good guy??!?!? I HATE all this changing sides things!!! ARRRRGHGHGHG!!!

Posted by Cavemold

Its going be the female puck guys

Posted by KingHellion

what if its the alternate storm that popped up in astonishing?

Posted by Zoch81

okay first off there going be two x-forces like not going be confusing and second why is storm joining she strongly opposed x-force when she found out it existence and she doesn't even kill if that case they changing ideals/methods of x-force but then it wouldn't be X-Force anymore would it.

Posted by zombietag

this team seems kinda weak. plus x-force w/out wolverine is strange. idk about all this. ron garney is incredible though.

im glad marvels throwing some books at the newer guys like humphries and hopeless. still though, uncanny x-force without remender seems so.... wrong

Posted by evilvegeta74

Shouldn't all of this lunacy be happening in Ultimate Marvel where they do off beat things, and everone is cool with it? Why is marvel screwing with 616? Marvel shouls have made these changes in Ultimate Universe. I'm just saying!

Posted by moviegeek17

I haven't been on this site for weeks but I really needed to say this.

There's nothing left to milk marvel! adding dozens more x-titles isn't going to make me jump on! So do us all a favor and stop destroying your properties!

Posted by sora_thekey

STORM?!

I like the addition of Spiral to the team, but X-Force with no Deadpool (on either team)? Couldn't care less about Puck.

Posted by carnivalofsins00

And I'll say again, I am through with the X-Force title once Rick Remender is done. At least until they bring a GOOD writer on board.

Posted by Umbraa

Hump is a pretty good writer. Storm, straight smh. Brian Wood's team was perfect for her. Now, I would say everyone is jumping the gun. But it's going to be hard to explain Storm as a 'killer' ...not that she hasn't, but she's not a killer. She also oppossed Logan and Scott..I hope it's not the same moral compass crap! Unless something has changed with her as a character. Besides that Wood's X-men Storm was the focus, now it looks like Psylocke is the focus. This is great news for Psylocke. Thus is a wait and see book, that should be good.

Posted by Super_SoldierXII

I think we're all making far too many assumptions in voicing our grievances here;

- We are assuming the drive behind the existence of an 'X-Force' team (or two) is going to be the same post Marvel NOW as it was pre Marvel NOW (mandated to eliminate with extreme prejudice before evil can reciprocate).

- We are assuming that both new teams will be tasked with similar to same mandates. Whereas they may be driven by two entirely different circumstances ...

- We are assuming the characters and their morals will all remain the same.

- We are assuming what drives a character today will remain intact after the changes that bring about Marvel NOW come into full effect.

Fact is, little has been established plot wise other than the fact Cable's team will effectively be 'on the run' and wanted by authorities. I say we wait and see before tossing a tantrum.

Posted by RalfvdH

Don't really care about the team... Storm and Psylocke are ok... but I don't care about Puck and Spiral....also Storm seems to be misplaced.... Maybe they are changing the motivation of a x-force team... at least this one

Also don't care about the other team....(Cable and X-force ) Don't like the look of the characters... I never cared about Cable...

Probably going to drop the title when Marvel Now begins...Love the Rick Remender story line..Also love that team of X-force.... I'm going to finish that story line and that's that...

Posted by White Mage

.......................Psylocke and Storm.....working together.........Yay

Also, Storm is clearly joining in order to keep people grounded.

Edited by cmaprice

Spiral and Psylocke are great. But Storm? No. Bloodstorm would have made much more sense if you need to have the appearance of an a-lister.

Who's making these arbitrary decisions?

storm is a hypocrite. nya na na na nya na na na. *opens umbrella*

Posted by pspin

Well this seems completely different than the current UXF and could go either way, definitely a more interesting roster than the other one.

Posted by TDK_1997

This looks ultimately dumb.Psylocke is the only character I like from the current members.

Edited by Mutant God
