#1 Posted by Rabbitearsblog (6028 posts) - - Show Bio

There are upcoming new titles coming from Marvel NOW that deals with X-Force, so which title are you more excited for?

Uncanny X-Force: by Sam Humphries and Ron Garney

Team Members: Psylocke, Storm, Puck, and Spiral

Cable and the X-Force: by Dennis Hopeless and Salvador Larroca

Team Members: Cable, Colossus, Domino, Forge and Dr. Nemesis

I think this is kinda a no-brainer here... Unless Uncanny gets a better expanded roster, Cable wins.

CaTXF.

UXF sounds terrible. That line-up is ridiculous, like something from an absurd fan fiction. Kind of infuriating that it's allowed to follow Remender's stellar run.

neither.

I have to agree with the posts above....the new line up for Uncanny is just beyond ridiculous...Spiral and Puck are two characters who I didn't care if I never saw again

Cable obviously

Neither. UFX ends with Remender for me

I used to say "I'll follow Psylocke wherever she goes"....and then she ended up the focus of Claremont's horrendous Exiles run. Uncanny X-Force gave me new hope but they need to go ahead and release the 3 other members of the lineup of this new incarnation stat because Puck....is not a badass and Spiral is a really odd addition. Storm doesn't sell it for me either, and the way they phrase it that "no one would suspect" the other members makes me think they're gonna be really obscure (which normally I wouldn't mind)....maybe we're gonna get some Avenger types in there since everything's kinda meshing together in the rest of the NOW! titles.

Neither.

I can't believe they'll replace Uncanny X-Force, which is amazing, with these two dull books. The line-up for the new UXF is terrible (Psylocke wanted to get away from UXF on several occassions now, Storm as a member of a covert ops wet-squad isn't an idea that makes sense to me and the other two members I couldn't give a flying f*%k about). Although I admit I was a bit skeptical about Fantomex at first too, so the other two members might work out alright I guess. Cable & UXF just gives a weird vibe for me. I love Cable as a character, but I just can't see him leading this new UXF. Plus it all seems a bit too forced for me.

Besides, I think having 2 UFX titles which seem to have nothing to do with each other except for the obvious similar titles is just plain stupid. But I guess we'll have to wait and see. But so far nearly nothing has me excited for this MarvelNOW stuff...

i really sorry to see this series go and be replaced with these 2

I think the obvious choice is Cable's X-force. It goes five deep with a solid group of characters. Psylocke's team weakens pretty badly after Storm. Dr. Nemesis will likely be the fan favorite if they write him as he should be.

Kind of skeptical about the new X-Force books, but I'll give Cable & X-Force a try.

Cable and the X-Force sounds more interesting to me.

#16 Posted by Rickbarry (1850 posts) - - Show Bio

It still seems like there might be a Team Gold/Blue dynamic as both of these X-forces were loyal to either Logan or Scotty.

Team 'Future' Blue!

Hope not. I'm getting really tired about the X-Men getting further split up.

If I had to choose between those tow : Cable and X-Force
What I'm excited for is THUNDERBOLTS!!! But I heard People are not  big fan of the creative team.

#20 Posted by Blood1991 (8082 posts) - - Show Bio

I'll try both, but I am not happy about Storm or Colossus being on those teams. NOT AT ALL

#21 Posted by Imperius_Rex (452 posts) - - Show Bio

Here marvel smoke this and start spitballing ideas I'm sure you won't do anything irresponsible. Or annoying. Or ridiculous. What's storm gonna do on x force!?!? Be in the back complaining there was a better way every time someone gets killed? Don't get me wrong I love storm... Because she's suppose to be the rock or the level head or whatever you wanna call it! But honestly cable was born for x force.

#22 Posted by knighthood (1744 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm somewhat intrigued by both titles, but if I had to choose one it'd be Uncanny X-Force. I'm not a fan of Cable, Domino, and Nemesis. Spiral and Psylocke could be really interesting together. I do find it interesting that Forge and Storm are on opposing X-Force teams now. I wonder if that'll just be a coincidence.

I'm unlikely to pick up either since I'm reading Legacy and ANXM. I'm trying to limit my comic budget.

It's actually odd that they are on these teams. I wonder what happened...

Same. Colossus I can accept I don't like it, but it is a direction his character has been heading in as much as I hate to admit it. Storm is just WTF all across the board it just doesn't make sense.

He is getting his hair back which is a step forward and he may balance out X-Force instead of just killing on command.

True. I hope Colossus gets a lot of character development in this series!

That's my hope. I hate it when they make him generic muscle.

I'm going with the Cable team. It looks interesting to me and I know people don't like them but except for Cable I'm loving the redesigns.

Me too. Colossus really needs some serious development at this point.

neither but I'll check out Uncanny if it peaks my interest

@Rabbitearsblog: @Blood1991: No sense in freaking out, friends! I don't think anyone can really portray Colossus as someone that kills on a whim. He did well enough after being a host for the PF as well as the current avatar of Cyttorak. So I doubt he'll squish someone just because Cable says so. Either way...I'm anticipating the release. Mildly interested in seeing both Cable and Colossus interact.

#33 Posted by Blood1991 (8082 posts) - - Show Bio

@Rickbarry: I am too. I also want to see how Domino and him interact in this based on their budding friendship in X-Men. I also think the pairing of Dr. Nemesis and Forge is genius.

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

I'll try Cable & X-Force, add Stacy X into the mix then it'll be perfect! She's kinda wild card, but she will add to the dynamic and flavor to the team. As for UXF, sadly if the roster don't change, I'll let it go.....R.I.P

I definitely want to see how Colossus and Cable interact with each other! It would be interesting to see how well they get along with each other.

I like Cable and Doc Nemesis a lot oh and Forge is back!!! why not get his book. I was Iffy about UXF but I might give it a shot since Bishop is supposed to be an antagonist for the team.

I heard Sage was going to be brought in too, though not as apart of the original roster.

Lol @ comic book fans who moan about wanting different, and when they get different, there's still something to complain about :s.

Uncanny. Though, it shouldn't even be called "X-Force" tbh. That's stupid, if anything.
