@g_man: I read the annual. Completely didnt see that coming. I like how it turned out. But would like it if he didnt turn up so much in future issues. it'd like to see how this new team does with out having the big 3 in it drawing focus. I mean do we really need them in everything we don't need this many justice league incarnations
@wolverine08: yes it does. Thanos is a Galactic level threat! could any of X-force take out a Galactic level threat?? no They could barely take out Apocalypse or even Archangel and that left them decimated! The Guardians have taken out Thanos, The Phalanx and by extension Ultron (may I remind you what happened when Wolverine decided to take on Ultron)..they even beat back a cancer Universe of undying versions of themselves (and other heroes) and one of their own who is also a cosmic level threat!
also for every one else out there who doubts Gamora, Drax and Groot they have Regenerative capabilities that are on par and in some cases out class those of X-force.
x-force is a covert little group that works best when no one knows they're coming. The Guardians are hardened by what 3 or 4 galactic wide wars and a number of minor incursions to boot. They work best in no win situations and going up against the Likes of X-force, mutants who have been fighting every day of their lives, is exactly the sort of fight that they are known for coming out on top.
