First Look: UNCANNY X-FORCE #25

Get ready for an oversized issue with the deadly X-team.

What could be better than a new issue of UNCANNY X-FORCE by Rick Remender? How about an oversized one with two stories to celebrate the 25th issue? Things are heating up and it's great to see Genesis and the Jean Grey school here to tie the two series together.

Today Marvel has released a first look at this big issue. Get ready for some craziness. You know Remender won't be holding back.

Marvel is proud to present your first look at the landmark 25 issue of Uncanny X-Force, from the superstar creative team of Rick Remender, Mike McKone and Dean White! The epic saga “Final Execution” begins here and X-Force faces their greatest threat yet! Someone is arming the villains of the Marvel Universe with the most dangerous weapons known to man, and when Wolverine’s team traces it back to the Omega Clan, the black ops squad finds themselves in some hot water. And when the origins of the deadly clan are revealed, it will send shockwaves throughout the entire team and Logan in particular!

With two rare stories by Rick Remender and Jerome Opeña included in this oversized issue, no fan can miss the explosive opener of Final Execution in Uncanny X-Force #25, hitting comic shops everywhere and the Marvel Comics app, this May!

Omega Clan? Omega Red by any chance? Although I was lead to believe he had been killed.

SWEET

@LordRequiem: Yes Omega REd is back

Posted by Dernman

Get rid of Fantomex already. Am I the only one who doesn't like him or think he shouldn't be on the team?

Also not fond of AOA Nightcrawler being on the team.

Hopefully better than the last, it was kinda underwhelming :x

Love Remnder's work on this series. Hope that his quality doesn't suffer now that he is writing three ongoings.

Posted by SavageDragon

@Dernman: Nooooo Fantomex is awesome and hes the only character whos not an everyday face whos on the team. He deserves to be featured in an ongoing series and E.V.A is crazy.

Posted by davelecave

@Dernman: Fantomex is amazing.

When does this issue hit stores?

edit: Did research, looks like 5/9/2012

Omega Red, what a mean mutha. I'm curious how the new artist will handle it, I'm sure he'll be better than Greg Tochinni. His art style gave me a migrane

Posted by Dernman
@SavageDragon@davelecave: Uninterested in him at all. It's an actual effort to read anything with him in it.

No, this storyline will be unaffected by AvX.

Personally I like the new Nightcrawler and I also like Fantomex. Certainly more than Deadpool, who I've never taken to myself (I know, I know...I'm in a club of about one there...). I thought the last story was a bit hit and miss, sometimes fab sometimes no more than average. But I'm curious about the Omega Clan...

Posted by X35

Where is Deathlok!!

Why does the robot not get in on the covers. Do they forget to send him invites to the photoshoots or somethng??

Why are their guns shooting punch ?

He's still dead. The clan is related to him though.

Posted by Elixir95

Remender has stated the Omega Red will not return, rather that this Clan sought of use his body parts to go about their stuff.

BTW: Is Wolvie paying Deadpool and Fantomex's salaries now? Because that was the only reason they were in the team in the first place. Or have I missed something where they now have an emotional stake (seems hard to believe in Deadpool's case especially) in this?

@LordRequiem: @ThexX: @Mad_Wolverine: According to the interviews a few months when they first announced this its actually not omega red its its 3 clones of him with different aspects of his powers

Glad Opena is back. Hope we get to keep him. BTW, are people reading the post. Where the hell does it say Omega Red??

Posted by zombietag

stoked! not stoked about $5 price tag :/

Posted by Mad_Wolverine

@DATNIGGA: Good enough for me :)

@Dernman: seriously? i think he very much belongs on the team and probabaly is what makes this series what it is. he's more important character than the rest are..used to be angel but now its him and wolverine IMO.

most arcs center around fantomex. and nothing is really wrong with him..im assuming you just want COOLER MORE MAINSTREAM CHARACTERS?

And why would you assume that because I don't agree with you? :/  
You're making an assumption with nothing to back it up but merely judging me as a mainstream drone because I don't like a character you are FANing over. 
Oh you must have to like this REALLY COOL FRINGE CHARACTER if you don't it's because you are so mainstream.     That's  ridiculous.  
 
I don't like the character or his influence on the book since he came on. There is only one character that truly matters in the book and even he can be replaced.

@Dernman: then you cant like the book. because he has been the basis for about every arc so far. without him who knows what these storys would have been like. you never listed a valid reason why you didnt like him so you sound like a troll.

and what character would you perfer then? spiderman? captain america??

Back in issue 5 it was revealed that Deadpool at least was never cashing any of his paychecks.

X force is tha shiznit they would find a way 2 kill superman but they need one more member with energy based powers

NIGHTCRAWLER?!?! Where did he come from??

Posted by Meteorite

I may actually start picking this up, I need a new series to read

Posted by Dernman

 because he has been the basis for about every arc so far.  

Wong and Wrong. I loved the book when it was just X-Force and loved the Dark Angel saga killing of Apocalypse even though I hated his part in it. IMO it could have been better if they put someone else in in role. I reject that the arcs were basis on him was based on him. I also liked others. The only one really though couldn't have found some way to insert someone else in his place was the one involving the world which sucked. Only to be matched by the Other World arc. 

 Without him who knows what these storys would have been like. 

Without him they most likely found someone else to fill the role to have the same effect. These are characters not real people. You fit the character into the story as apposed to the people making the story.

you never listed a valid reason why you didnt like him so you sound like a troll.

Yet another ridiculous statement. Would it have been anymore trolling if I came on here and just said  I like him and he needs to stay.
I didn't go into detail with my reasons because there wasn't a need to. I was just sharing my opinion. 
There could have been many valid reasons that I don't like him or it could just plain don't like him. 
Who gets to say they are valid? YOU? Did you bother to even ask my reasons before making your ignorant assumption? 
The only one coming off sounding like a troll here is you for making baseless accusations and coming at me/my opinion the way you are.

spiderman? captain america??

Still trolling with that  ignorant  assumption I see.

@HolySerpent: The Nightcrawler in X-Force is AOA Nightcrawler not 616 Nightcrawler.

I love this series, its freaking AWESOME!!!! I hope this series doesn't end soon. Is it me or did the majority of the missions revolve around Apocalypse or had something to do with him?

I love this incarnation of X-Force, but they are sorely lacking in power. Wish they would put Warpath back on the team.

Posted by Zhakaraz
