Buried deep, sequestered under a million years of unnatural evolution, Father, architect of The World, has a solution to the relentless and fruitless super human conflict that has left the Earth teetering on the brink of destruction. The Deathlok virus will spread, acclimate and control them all. In order to protect Earth’s heroes from the Deathlok virus, X-Force must kill The World’s Father, and his perfect future with him. But should they? How many people would a hero allow to die to ensure worldwide utopia?

Fantomex and his as-yet unnamed Deathlok savior are on the run, mysterious "The World" artifact in tow, from an army of Deathlok-infested superhumans from the future.

Meanwhile, Psylocke sits down with her brother, Captain Britain, revealing to him that she was complicit in the murder of a child. Captain Britain does not condone her actions, but does acknowledge that he at least understands, and will still love his sister no matter what. Emotionally reinforced, Psylocke takes her leave, only for the whole scenario to be revealed as a Danger Room simulation.

Fantomex and Deathlok manage to retrieve The World from the Deathlok Captain America and manage to take him in alive by the time the rest of X-Force arrives. The team manages to hack into Captain America's cybernetics enough to get access his personality and memories, where he reveals that his future's leaders actually voted to enact protocols that would turn the world's superhumans into Deathlok soldiers, devoid of free will, and to usher in Utopia. The catch: it worked (but the Deathloks were sent back in time to take care of one remaining threat, which is apparantly Apocalypse; still somehow not quite dead). With his free will temporarily restored Captain America is unable to cope with the memories of what he was forced to do as a Deathlok and, grabbing Deadpool's gun, shoots himself in the head.

With a general idea of where to go from here, the team (headed by a revenge-minded Fantomex) heads off into a wide open space to unfurl "The World" and go in, after the Deathlok army's ruler, "Father".

Kill the Future 0

THE GOODThis is a great issue! What I loved at the end of the last issue was not knowing which way the tide was going to turn. All we knew was that the original Deathlok was on the scene. This issue took me in a direction I was not expecting - which was exactly what I wanted.I found it interesting that the Cyborg-Avengers and Cyborg-X-Force resemble characters possessed by the Carnage Symbiote. Now that would be an interesting future - Dealthlok Symbiote Characters... I am sure the US Military i...

Cannot absolve you 0

After the last issue which through me, the unfamiliar reader, into a story deeply surrounding Fantomex did not lead to the best comic reading experience.  Here though the writers have turned things around and with the provision of a little bit of detail in relation to the back story this issue really takes off.  Well it does and it doesn't.  The first bit is a well executed bit of action but it is action without meaning, meant to look visually impressive while not adding much to the story.  As s...
