Most Recommended X-Force arc?

#1 Posted by WildValentine (289 posts) - - Show Bio

I'll start out by saying that I'm a big fan of Psylocke, but she hasn't really had major attention since that mini-series written by Chris Yost. I'm aware that she jumped on the X-Force team, but I'm not sure when she did (she jumped on with Fantomex and Deadpool right?). Now, I haven't read a single issue of X-Force in my life, which I probably should be slapped for. I don't know why! I just never picked one up, even though I love Wolverine and X-23. 
 
So, what X-Force arc would you recommend (that is a trade, preferably) that includes Psylocke? 
 
I probably can't jump onto the current X-Force, right? It looks incredibly confusing.

Just read #1-18 of Uncanny X-Force (Psylocke, Wolverine, Fantomex, Angel, Deadpool) in trade, issue 19 just came out so you'd be pretty much up to date.

I had an easy enough time starting on the first TPB of the current run, The Apocalypse Solution, and I'm just about caught up now. Really great stuff.

Is that the most recent incarnation of the team?

I'm going to have to be a total noob and ask what TPB means - sorry!

@WildValentine: Yes, started in 2010, only on issue #19 now so you could easily catch up. Brand new line up so easy to follow. And TPB stands for tradepaperback. They're several (usually 4 or 6) issues collected into one big book.

Thanks for your help! I managed to get my hands on the first five issues or so of that arc, and I'm enjoying it.

TPB - Trade Paper Back

And yes that's the current line-up (Wolverine, Psylocke, Archangel, Fantomex, Deadpool). The series is called Uncanny X-Force and started right after the Second Coming arc in the end of 2010, making the series only have 20 issues as of now. The other line-up (Wolverine, X-23, Elixir, Domino, Angel, Wolfsbane, Warpath, and Vanisher) was the previous X-Force title right before Uncanny X-Force started out... it ended with 22 issues and Uncanny was kinda like a continuation of it! I would just start out reading Uncanny X-Force from #1 till now (which is only like 20 issues) but if u really want to delve into the X-Force world... I would definantly start out with the previous X-Force book, read the entire 22 issue series then read the Second Coming story then continue to Uncanny X-Force! (But that's just me... and maybe because I've been following it since the beginning and it's sort of like a chronological order, but who cares!!) Money wise, just start with the Uncanny X-Force series!!!

Hope that info helps!!!

I'm just hoping for another female to join!! I was hoping Domino would but she's being used elsewhere at the moment... come to think of it, both Psylocke and Domino are on the same X-Men team on Cyclops' side, maybe Psylocke will let her in on the "secret club" and she'll join after all!

That's one aspect of her powers and personality that we really never seen (or that I've never seen). I think she was a badass in her samurai training with Wolverine or something but don't remember!
