It's a Mutant Make-Out Session in Uncanny X-Force #12

These frisky mutants just can't keep their hands to themselves.

We've seen the cover to Uncanny X-Force #11 for some time now. Fantomex and Psylocke are making out. This was surprising to all because Psylocke is (or has been) in a committed relationship with Angel.

Of course that hasn't stopped Fantomex from putting the moves on her since issue #1. Based on the cover, something between the two is going to change. Covers are not always completely accurate. There has been plenty of times we've been mislead by what has been depicted on the cover and what is contained in the actual comic.

If you've been reading Uncanny X-Force lately (which you should be because it's awesome), you know that the relationship between Psylocke and Angel has been a little...strained lately. The fact that he is possessed and is fighting the evil Archangel persona makes it a little difficult for them to have quality alone time. Psylocke has been working hard to help him fight his...demon but with his recent bouts of killing, it hasn't been too easy. The team also made a trip to the Age of Apocalypse universe in order to try to find a cure for Angel.

And that brings us to issue #11. Besides Fantomex and Psylocke locking lips, we can see that they won't be the only ones involved in extracurricular activities. Now that Wolverine has come face to face with the Jean Grey from this world, it won't be too surprising what happens next.

== TEASER ==

Uncanny X-Force #12 is part two of The Dark Angel Saga. It's written by Rick Remender with pencils by Mark Brooks and colors by Dean White. The cover is by Esad Ribic with Adam Kubert providing a variant cover. The issue is on sale July 27, 2011.

Is there any chance that AoA Jean Grey will return to the 616 universe with Wolverine as I suggested before?

@Mutant God:  I'll have to read the rest of the Anniversary mini but in the first issue of it he's alive

@danhimself: you are absolutely right! he seemed to have died! :S

This is not consistent at all to the AoA storyline.
The Jean Grey here also known now as Mutant Alpha - is way too fact, saving the entire universe with her powers. Where is her costume? Hmmm...

I always love revisiting AoA. It wins serious nostalgia points with me.  

As a side note, I miss the days when Logan was actually depicted as shorter than everyone else!

Posted by danhimself
@Mutant God:  you're right...he was taken into Cloak's cloak and they do have a gravestone at the end...but there have been some changes since that series apparently since they say that Logan is dead there and he was still alive at the end of the mini maybe they got Gambit out somehow
there are some other questions I have as well like how did Sabretooth get back?  the last we saw him he was still a member of the Exiles

Giant Samurai Sentinel: "OH, WOW! Sorry guys, um, didn't mean to uh, interrupt on your little fling..."

And Melita???  where Logan left Melita? She is by far the best girfriend he had (she figth demons for him, found out his real birth day, they work together in cases ...) so yes this jean is indeed in love with Logan and logan loves her but i dont like the makeout of them . and logan is faithfull (or so they say) to his girlfriends so chances say she kiss him 
and the cover is a mislead (I hope xD )
and kirika will come to 616.
 why?? because she wants to be with his father

The man's got some moves!
Plus let's not forget he's the best at what he does...even if it ain't pretty.

I saw the "sort of", but I wanted to make it clear. If I mean to say "you're wrong", I'll say it.

I don't know if I could've made it any clearer, and if I want your help clarifying my posts, I'll say it.

Oh yay, Jean Grey and the Age of Apocalypse, two of the most boring things in X-Men history. Wonderful -__-

I don`t know O.o I miss the original Jean :(

Posted by coslopis

AoA Jean reminds me of  Ultimate Jean


I think this issue will somewhat solidify Uncanny X-Force's overall quality stamp, being it will either be the prime rib or the ham.
To me it seemed cheesy right out of the gate, but the last issue was handled rather well, better than Anniversary I might say,
but we'll see.

Posted by FortressoftheMoon

I'm sorry mate, Gambit doesn't make it out. Nightcrawler wasn't able to save him out of the Cloak's darkforce. 
But you do raise a good question. How is Sabretooth there I know he's taken a break from the Exiles but he really shouldnt be there nor should Sunfire?
Posted by fodigg

AoA characters have crossed into 616 enough already. Unless they're an all-new character, why bother? With Hope and Rachel, we don't need another knockoff-Jean.

I've found over the past several months that Marvel has been very misleading with their covers. They give off an extremely false conception of what the following story really is. It's always been somewhat of an issue with them, but I can't think of a time when it was this much more prevelant. I can't give examples right now because I'm at work, but I don't think this is something to get our tits in a wringer over. Just another ploy to sell more issues of Uncanny X-Force (which shouldn't really be a problem, this book has been fabulous since issue #1).

A Psylocke/Fantomex relationship...even a make out session...makes no sense at all.  Psylocke hates the guy and has shown no interest whatsoever.  I think it's more likely that Fantomex uses one of his misdirections to get at her.  Or maybe it's actually AoA Psylocke that Fantomex gets with?
Good Shout.

well its got me intrested lol

Fantomex is a lucky basterd

also what's the M.O.D.O.K. thing in the last pic?
Yeah, it's pretty strange, yet awesome. If he's just there in the background with no explanation I'd love it.

I didn't read this but it looks a little interesting.

Can't wait until I get this on trade.

The release schedule on this series is driving me crazy. I thought I'd missed an issue (which would suck because this arc is awesome), but it's just a 8 week gap between issues and it had been coming out every 2 weeks.

Posted by AlwaysBeClothing

I have no idea what's going on and who most of their characters are in those panels. I feel pretty bad about that.

Posted by mikeclark1982

i see nightcrawler in the kubert variant... now wouldnt it be odd to see him return after such a valiant death in "second coming"!?!!?!?

whos the pretty gal in the green mandarin dress?
Logan's daughter in AOA

@Mutant God
Looks like Gambit. Cool! ;)
Posted by Kairan1979
that's not Rachel, that's AoA Jean, with short hair.
And she was a widow for ten years, so she is NOT cheating.
Posted by Amegashita
@Kairan1979:  One, you're pretty late on that.  At least 3 people said the same thing you did pages before you.  Second, Jean may not be cheating, but Logan is.  
Posted by Kairan1979
I never liked Melita, so I don't care.

@umbrafeline: AoA's X-23, daughter of Weapon X and Mariko Yashida .
