Secrets from the future and the past come to haunt Uncanny X-Force!

What does Fantomex want from Betsy?

What does Betsy want from Cluster?

What does Cluster want from Fantomex?

What does Bishop want from the 21st century? A body count or a good burger?

And Los Angeles, lock up your humans: there's a new mutant on the loose!

Synopsis

A herd of sheep rumbles past Wolverine. Psylocke rides up on a horse and and greets Wolverine to her meditative state. The two begin shepherding while Wolverine lectures her about mission protocols. He is upset with how things got handled with Spiral. Psylocke is not so concerned.

Outside Psylocke's mind (and occurring earlier in time), Cluster has kidnapped Psylocke. Cluster crashes the car, however, and Psylocke awakens seeing Cluster and thinking she is in Paris. When she realizes that she is still in Los Angeles and abducted she smacks Cluster upside the head. Cluster begs for Psyolocke's help: Fantomex has been captured by Weapon XIII. Psylocke refuses and begins to walk away when Spiral teleports in and nabs Psylocke.

The counsel between Wolverine and Psylocke in the present continues. Psylocke questions Wolverine's intentions for having her do his dirty work. He admits that his new job makes killing seem unpalatable, but he recognizes the need for it sometimes. Like with Spiral. He also counts missing sheep and wants to know what is hunting them. Psylocke assures him not to worry about the hunter.

In the recent past: Psylocke is taken to a rooftop and she and Spiral begin fighting. Spiral insists, however, that she just wants to talk. Psylocke is not in the mood and the ladies clash. Spiral tries to explain that she only wants to try and rebuild her life. This strikes a chord with Psylocke. She allows Spiral to depart.

In Psylocke's meditation, she and Wolverine sit around a campfire while Psylocke relates the events with Spiral. Wolverine admits that he sent Psylocke after Spiral because he knew of the bad blood between them, though he didn't know what Psylocke would ultimately decide to do. Psylocke gets upset that it seems like Wolverine has fallen into the "Them or Us" type of attitude, which he confirms. The two stand up and prepare for a fight. Just then, Demon Bear appears and Psylocke explains that he is her companion now. Good thing too, as she explains that the Demon Bear's presence saved Wolverine's life. Psylocke kicks Wolverine out of the psychic link.

Psylocke opens her eyes and sees Puck standing in front of her. He is gloating about how Wolverine should have chewed her up and spit her out for letting Spiral go. Psylocke merely states that the topic didn't come up. She checks on Bishop who is still recovering. She then turns to Cluster. She agrees to help save Fantomex.

Sam Humphries: If You Break My Heart I'll Never Forgive You 0

The GoodThis is one of the few books I'm getting (actually, it might be the only one) where the art is better than the writing. That's not to say that Humphries is doing poorly, but the art is of a consistently high quality that the writing has yet to hit. Both Dexter Soy and Adrien Alphona are great here, but Soy wins out because he gets more pages, and more things than just talking. Highlights include the bottom right panel of page 5, the entire Psylocke-Spiral fight, and the bottom panel of ...

Worst series ever... 0

Sam Humphries is talented, in the way that he can make both lesbians and x-force uninteresting. If you love bad acting day time soap operas you might really like this comic. Unfortunately x-force is not the place for soap opera drama. There's nothing wrong with some romance in comic, and sure as hell nothing wrong with some lesbian heroes in the x-force books. This X-force is all drama, very little action.I've disliked the voices for characters before. Characters Ive grown to love, I'm slowly s...
