Should X force be bigger?

Posted by DATNIGGA (1193 posts) - - Show Bio

The whole concept behind X force is some enemys are too powerful/deadly to remain alive a concept i have long since believed in.. but there are many enemy's like that... & there are many superhero's that are willing to do what is necessary for the survival of good people. one kill squad is not enough for taking on a world full of dangerous enemy's now multiple kill squads all operating under wolverines command... that would help the world out alot more...

now its no secret that some superhero's are just plain made for killing.. they just have the tools & power for the task I'll list a few people who would totally fit

X force...

Punisher

even though Hes not a mutant had the ''evil is better off dead'' mentality for a very LONNNG time he would be a perfect addition

Hollow

she has diamond hard razor sharp skin & claws that can cut threw the second hardest metal on the planet... thats deadly

Thornn

she would be a great addition &....

Ok... This choice was a little less serious but this is me just throwing this one out there... people have managed to reprogram sentential's & many things of the sort i personally think a modified Predator X would be a good addition for the team. it tracks it hunts & frankly it seems like wolverines dream dog...

warpath

I think this pic speaks for itself on the killer intent.. but he should come back

Laura & Jubilee

Laura should return she was great for the team & jubilee is no a vampire currently getting mentored by the forgiven

so.. vampire & ninja she should come back as well...

Domino

Origins of Marvel Comics: X-Men

Wolverines X should deff come back she just fits so perfectly....

I mean dont get me wrong Wolverine , Deadpool, Deathlok, fantomex, Psylocke , nightcrawaler & EVA

are a good crew.. but multi black ops units are better than one...

What do you think?

I agree with this, I consider X-Force to be to small of a group and therefore needs more members. I agree on Punisher, Laura and Jubilee, Domino and maybe even some from the X-men such as Rogue? Gambit? Who knows, but I like the point your making. But I also don't want to see X-Force growing to big as a group, I don't want another Avengers or X-Men. I would like X-Force to get new recruits (such as those who you have pointed out) but not to many, maintain the group at a good low number in comparison to other Marvel teams.

Nah, it's perfect as they are.. a nice blend. I'm hoping they don't replace the characters anytime soon cause **** interesting

The bigger you make a group, the harder it is to keep them a secret. Not that X-Force has done a very good job at that.

#4 Posted by AgeofHurricane (7297 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd rather have Laura and Jubilee to have their own mini with a couple other X-Girls, for some reason. Lol.

#5 Posted by Shadow_Thief (2509 posts) - - Show Bio

For the types of missions that X-Force undertakes, it makes more tactical sense for them to keep their numbers low: send in the minimum number that you need to get the job done.

#6 Posted by God_Spawn (37882 posts) - - Show Bio

Nah. It kind of takes away the whole assassin squad theme when you start getting too many people in there.

#7 Posted by TheGremlin (58 posts) - - Show Bio

The ideal squad would be mutants that specialize in stealth and tactics. Jubilee doesn't quite match.

X-23, Domino, Warpath, Thornn, Frenzy, hell if they were a little bit darker Anole, Beast, and Dust would be good additions.

@Shadow_Thief: @god_spawn:

I was thinking a large team, but in small groups that why little assassination squads can spilt up & accomplish what one cant

SMH at suggestions of people who don't fit on the team.

I think it's a good size and they have some auxiliary members they can call for back up.

#11 Posted by ThexX (1569 posts) - - Show Bio

If i could create a team that would be X-Force this would be it

  1. Wolverine
  2. Psylocke
  3. Warpath
  4. X-23
  5. Fantomex
  6. The Punisher (I know he isn't a mutant but it would be cool to see)
  7. Domino
#12 Posted by SavageDragon (2252 posts) - - Show Bio

I think the team is cool as is. Keep Fantomex, Deadpool, Psylocke, Wolverine and have a rotating member. (Nightcrawler, X-23, Warpath, maybe Punisher or even Legion)

#13 Posted by TheAmazingImmortalMan (3127 posts) - - Show Bio

I think the X-Force Squad is good as it is now, maybe one or two additions wouldnt be bad. but even though punisher would fit in with this group i prefer it to be just mutants its the xmen hit squad just my opinion...

#14 Edited by DATNIGGA (1193 posts) - - Show Bio

@SavageDragon: Leigon? really? why?

@Dernman: punisher & predator x where a little out there.. but other than that most of the other ones seem to fit pretty well

#15 Posted by jhazzroucher (15787 posts) - - Show Bio

Jubilee, X-23 and Hollow/Penance in one team would be awesome! : )

#16 Posted by Ragelantern (50 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah rotating certain characters is a great idea. I think they should have a different leader though I'm getting a little tired of wolverine being in every avengers and x men themed title, I know wolverine fits the bill but man I'm getting sick of him. Whoever said Legion that's an amazing idea!!!!

#17 Posted by DATNIGGA (1193 posts) - - Show Bio

@Ragelantern: how does legion fit x force? its a black ops type team & hes like.. a god lol

#18 Posted by Ragelantern (50 posts) - - Show Bio
@DATNIGGA Well I know it's a black ops team but it's not really the military!!! Lol I also feel like the characters are a bit conflicted and he fits the bill well. Plus their telepath left the team also.
#19 Posted by notoriousmistersims (91 posts) - - Show Bio

would like to see forge,agent x,garrison kane think they would be good but if we talking a lethal x force crew cable,winter soldier,punisher,deadpool,domino,elektra,deathlok not all mutants but a bad a$$ team imo

#20 Posted by SupahForeigner (227 posts) - - Show Bio

Reunite Deadpool and Cable, even make Cable co-leader with Wolverine? I agree with Wolverine seems to important and used way to much, give some other people a chance. X-Force is basically an assassination group, so have mercenaries and assassins maybe even some sneaky telepaths and psychopaths?:D Like currently you have Deadpool, Fantomex, Psylocke, Nightcrawler and Wolverine, which is fine. But having maybe Punisher, Deathlok and Cable would be pretty good. Aslong as they don't go overboard and recruit a whole population of marvel superheroes.

#21 Posted by Solarflare32 (393 posts) - - Show Bio

I would make X- force consist of 7 or 8 members These would be. 1) Wolverine 2) Deadpool 3) Fantomex/EvA 4) Psylocke 5) AoA Nightcrawler 6) Warpath 7) Sage 8) Cable

#22 Posted by XsPectre28 (719 posts) - - Show Bio

New X-force Team

Wolverine- Leader

Domino- Second In Command as Wolverine is on so many teams & may not always be availible

Warbird- Not only is kid gladiator's bodyguard but also protects wolverine under Gladiator's orders

Rachel Grey- team tracker & telepath

Nightcrawler- short range teleporter, stealth

Blink- long range teleporter

Deadpool- back up weapon wise for domino

Cipher- espionage/ stealth

Venom- (Flash) As a favor to X-23 to come in her place

Sage- Team Strategist, no field combat

#23 Posted by ReVamp (22865 posts) - - Show Bio

No, No, No, Yes, No, No.

The yes is for Warpath, if there's any question.

#24 Posted by frozenedge (1234 posts) - - Show Bio

Expanding X-Force might not be a good idea but a rotating team might be better. In Logan's case since he seems to be on every team in Marvel, somebody like Cable (once he gets his head out of Hope's ass) could probably take over as leader until he's back or something. Warpath could easily just rejoin but since he's on Scott's side, that probably won't be happening until this schism thing is over. I can't think of a telepath who'd be willing to join X-Force considering what they do

Just ad Warpath and X-23 to the current lineup!

#28 Posted by TheAmazingImmortalMan (3127 posts) - - Show Bio

@Demonturtle: both would be really good options, but I think cable would be the better option over Laura, and he could lead the team while Wolvie is off with the Avengers or any of the other dozen teams he is on

#29 Posted by Boogiepop (43 posts) - - Show Bio

IMO Domino and Warpath should be back on the team. I'm not really sure why they never joined Uncanny X-Force, unless Rick Remender just doesn't like them or something. X-23 would be cool too, but the way they've developed her recently, it seems unlikely she'd want to go back to X-Force again.

#30 Posted by papad1992 (6829 posts) - - Show Bio

For me leaving the team the same as it is currently: Wolverine, Deadpool, Psylocke, AoA Nightcrawler, and EVA but I'd add Chamber, Sage, and Hollow!

Wolverine - Leader

Deadpool - Psychotic Comic-Relief

Psylocke - Telepathic/Telekinetic Ninja

AoA Nightcrawler - Teleporting Swordsman

EVA - Sentient Weapon

Chamber - Psionic Energy Powerhouse

Sage - Mission Coordinator

Hollow - Untouchable Feral Mutant

I think that to me sounds like the perfect team right there! We can revisit the Apocalypse story involving Chamber and such, also Chamber and Hollow would have a connection just like they had in Generation X, and Sage would do her sage-ness!

@papad1992: I forgot about sage yea she would be perfect

#32 Posted by darque26 (22 posts) - - Show Bio

A Black-Ops unit should be tight and with minimize member. And each member at least should have primary and secondary MOS.

1. Wolverine (field leader, tracker)

2. Deadpool (sweeper, recon)

3. AoA Nightcrawler (infiltrator, teleporter)

4. Psylocke (psychics, ninja)

5. New member, E.V.A? (artilleray support, transport)

6. Sage (tactician, HUB)

7. (fill in Please)

#33 Edited by jcbart (341 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd definitely like Deathlok to actually become a member of X-Force rather than a supporting character. I also wouldn't mind Domino coming back at all, but I don't really think she would fit into this roster all that well at this point in time. I would definitely say Sage, but it looks like E.V.A. may be filling the tactician/intelligence role.

It would be pretty cool to see Logan leave X-Force in Betsy's hands. At the moment, she seems like the one who's growing into the most capable killer. Remender has said that her and Logan change a lot by the end of The Final Execution.

Why would the Punisher be part of a team that doesn't even go after the people he's been fighting for years? Half the people in the Marvel world don't agree with methods… no real thought was put into this list whatsoever… you just went for what sounds cool and that's the problem with Marvel these days

@NamelessNoName: my main question is should x force be bigger..

@Ragelantern: rotating characters for a secret hit squad? brilliant. different leader because you are tired of wolverine? genious. legion on the team? a very unstabble person in constant stressful situations? GENIUS.

I always felt Cable,Sage, Domino, and Mystique would be fun addition to the series. At the same time I like X-Force being a death squad verses a team, so the concept of a alternating cast does appeal to me.

Half the people in Marvel don't agree with X-Force's methods, either.

Domino fit in really well with the earlier X-Force group and she is use to operating in the shadows, bring her back. As for anyone alse I think Sage would be a good addition but who knows where she is right now.

#46 Posted by Dernman (15093 posts) - - Show Bio

Should it get bigger? You should ask if Marvel should keep the book going. It's future doesn't look so good in Marvel Now. Future solicits suggest that it's ending plus with Marvel Now ending book. *shrugs* Maybe they will relaunch it as something other then a killing squad.

Pretty much my exact thoughts; although X Force will be gaining a new member in issue 27 so we'll see if its anyone that has been suggested. (and Punisher is shown on the cover of issue 29 with a jacket with an "x" on it...we shall see.

I forgot about  Jessica Drew. She could work with an outfit like X-Force.
