The Official X-Force Thread
first couple of page of the next issue
STRYFE STRIKES! Cable and X-Force’s greatest nemisis returns! The X-event of the decade continues in MESSIAH WAR, and things go from “bad” to “worst case scenario” as X-Force and Cable struggle to keep Hope alive. While Cyclops fights to keep X-Force's involvement a secret in the present, Cable and Wolverine butt heads in the future over control of the child. Making matters worse, a member of X-Force abandons the team as an army of darkness descends upon them, leaving the team a man down with their backs to the wall. Past, present and future collide as the war for Mutantkind's survival continues.
some info I picked up for issue 20
@bioghost: Welcome to the world of solicitations :)
It seems that although Necrosha starts in issue #20, Wolfsbane is STILL not reunited with the rest of the team. I know they have things in store for her, but they should either bring her back in to the main roster of the team again or just cut her and leave her with the other New Mutants. It's not as if the team needs a feral type and they've coped without her for the best part of two years :p

NECROSHA continues here!! The resurrected dead lay siege to the X-Men's headquarters, and the fight to survive the Black Queen's vengeance begins. But while Warpath and Wolverine realize what's happening, they may be too late to stop it. Because Selene is already well on her way to achieving ultimate power half a world away. And as the rest of the X-Men fight mutants back from the dead, Wolfsbane struggles to survive a very different threat. PLUS!! The long awaited return of the VANISHER. PART TWO (of FIVE)

The unthinkable happens as NECROSHA continues! Selene’s actions on Genosha have changed everything, and while the X-Men were desperate to save their species…this isn’t what they had in mind. But as the siege by dead mutants continues, things get even deadlier with the arrival of Selene’s very much ALIVE Inner Circle at the X-Men’s headquarters. With Eli Bard in tow, WITHER, MORTIS, SENYAKA and BLINK have come for one thing, and anyone who gets in their way will die. PART THREE (of SIX) PLUS – A CABLE BACKUP STORY!

X-FORCE ANNUAL #1

Cover by JASON PEARSON
Wolverine is sent into the heart of a Hydra base alone. His mission: like a needle in a haystack, he’s tasked with bringing in one specific Hydra agent. But why? And what does this mission have to do with the dwindling mutant population and X-Force?
Plus, a NECROSHA BONUS FEATURE!! The Black Queen’s forces are consuming Utopia. The X-Men and X-Force fight for their lives. And amid the chaos, a squad of resurrected Acolytes have come for the former White King of the Hellfire Club…Magneto. But what they find instead is much, much worse: DEADPOOL! The Merc With a Mouth (and Loa) joins the fight in ‘UNDEADPOOL.’

Oh I didn't know that. How sad :( And honestly the only reason I know about Berzerker is because of X-Men: Evolution and Wolverine and the X-Men lol. But the giant mohawk kinda makes him easy to recognize.
But I'm excited to see who else is coming back. :)
X-Force had very little Necrosha build up except for that one scene. I think it was Pixelized guessed that Destiny would be Rogue's special dead-guest star :)
I really enjoyed this issue, but surprisingly not as much as I thought I would:
- The stuff with Morales & X is fun, almost like a buddy movie/Die Hard film gone wrong.
- It's cute to see Loa & co, but Choi & Oback make Loa look too cute. Like she's just got giant freckles.
- Domino & Wolverine with the Cuckoos was entertaining. Especially Domino. But seriously, they've found Wolfsbane? So what... SHE'S EXACTLY WHERE THEY LEFT HER! Where she's been bonking Hrimhari on the floor of Angel's Aerie! Oooh, that was a needle in a haystack... not :p
- Another issue without Warpath. Kyle & Yost, that's two strikes... one more within the next few months and I'll fire you Trump/Sugar style myself! Seriously, I shouldn't have to rely on issues of Hulk for y Warpath fix!!
As for X-Force in Hulk. It was entertaining, and carried various fight scenes a little better than Exodus. Otherwise, I'm left a bit cold. Maybe because no-one else other than K&Y should write X-Force... even after I fire them :)
hey at least we now know that loa and exlir is still a couple and with the cuckoos sister (phew what a relief)
oh and xerox-kitty there nothing wrong with Loa being too cute. just pray to god that you won't see Choi and Oback atempt to make a pixie even cuter than she is.
I could of sworn they say a couple issue agos that they can't find wolfbanes and now I guessing this that the cukoos sisters put her to sleep.
you think an another without warpath is bad at least you got a substiue for him but I can't find anything for the vanisher (l like the guy)
where would i find a guy that they tourture in almost all the issue.
the way they wrote x-force for me in the hulk comic seem a bit off to me. I think they word a little perky would fit in mood they having right now.
I don't like seeing Loa drawn with as if she has gigantic freckles. Almost like a Raggedy Ann doll. And I'd rather see Choi & Oback draw Pixie than have Greg Land & Terry Dodson portray her as a porn star.
They didn't really look very hard for Wolfsbane. She ran away at first, but when the giants attacked she was naked on the floor of Angel's Aerie. In other words, she'd gone home. In fact, I doubt any insurance company would cover the costs to repair Angel's Aerie after it was attacked by Asgardian giants ;)
M'eh. Vanisher finally has a decent creative team, but I can't say I'm that bothered he's gone. He's a coward, he's meant to split as soon as he can. He barely had a dozen appearances over the last 40 years... Besides, he's on the cover in 2 months time, so you know he will be back. I just find it odd that in a 3-part story line, one of the main characters was only around for one issue. That, and I just want to see him drawn more by Choi & Oback!!
I know what you mean about it seeming 'a bit off' in Hulk. I felt that way at first until I saw what inferiorego wrote about Hulk. Yuo just have to read it as if it's a big summer blockbuster action movie. Then it kind of makes sense.
They look great! Too damned tantalising... and a wee bit bloody too. The women all look far too similar, but we can still see clearly enough to know what's happening. I love how Laura is using her greatest weakness to her adventage.
And yeah, I love Choi/Oback but a lot of their female characters look the same...but their art is so beautiful I can overlook it lol. And I guess those pictures from the Necrosha previews with Laura's claws out make more sense :/ I love the scene with Logan, it's nice to see that he actually cares about Laura and her well-being.
@pixelized: Yeah, me too... but my disappointment was short-lived because Illyana's a great edition to the team (although only temporary) and she's got more personality in that one panel than in her Mat Fraction penned appearances ;)
And I'm guessing Illyana's there to teleport Laura back to Utopia when the Cuckoo's find her?
