X-Force gets a new line up in Marvel Now!

Cable and X-Force marks both a return and a reinvention of the X-Force concept, Hopeless told CBR.

"When Nick Lowe asked me to pitch the book, he said X-Force has a history of reinvention. Every time there's a new X-Force title, it's miles different from the previous incarnation. Then Nick asked, 'What would your version of X-Force be?'

"That was a really cool and interesting challenge, especially because right after that, he said, 'But make it about Cable,' and hung up the phone. I had to figure out a story that would reinvent X-Force while also taking the book back to its Cable roots."

Hopeless says Cable is "Mad Max meets Steve McQueen as played by the T2 Terminator," and that "He just wants whatever horrible thing he has to do done fast, so he can steal five minutes peace after."

Early in the first arc something will happen that will put Cable and X-Force on the run with Havok and the Uncanny Avengers coming after them hence the teaser:

"From their perspective, this X-Force is a team of super villains," Hopeless told CBR. But he equates the squad more to a "Mission Impossible" team in the middle of the movie. The book is part crime/heist, part international spy chase, and part big superhuman action.

NO! Not Colossus on X-Force :(

Dr. Nemesis looks pretty bad ass, I like the new looks and other than Colossus being there I like the team.

Nothing he is my second favorite X-Man and I'm glad he has his hair back, but he doesn't fit on a team like that in my opinion. He isn't a "do whatever is necessary to complete the mission" character even though Marvel has been pushing him down a darker road for years he still doesn't fit to me.

tbh ever since he was brought back way back i the early issues of Astonishing X-men Colossus has been shown to do what is necessary. Long before the whole Juggernaut deal.

Colossus. I nut sure.

Warpath would have been a better choice, if he hadn't gotten all that development.

I actually think Colossus has one of the biggest body counts among the X-Men...all were times when he thought he was doing what was necessary...he fits in perfectly.

Yeah..... Still don't like it, but I understand why they pushed him that way, but I still hold on to the old Colossus that wouldn't hurt a fly without very good reason. I just feel that this puts the old Colossus that was in the coffin and buries him. I just need to grieve abit. I wonder if he and Domino will be a thing after what happened in X-Men 35 they may go down that road.

I have no idea, I literally ignored who was writing in case it was someone I wouldn't like, but I am not that familiar with Hopeless now that I know he is writing so thats good too. I think the only books I have written by him are in my need to read soon stack. I guess I am sorted now!

You can have him! Though I think Thunderbolts line-up looks far more interesting than this one.

Like Dr. Nemesis' redesign.

K...interesting. New looks are alright but whats with Cable eye patch and weird robo arm? I know he was cured of the techno-organic virus but y is he now looking like Nick Fury? After he was cured he had black hair, both eyes and both arms (I think). Any news on why he looks like this?

he did a pretty solid job on the Season One graphic novels so I think this should be alright

Looks cool. I like Dr. Nemesis' new design. I don't know why they're bringing back Forge of all people. I never met any who held a stronger feeling than 'meh' towards him. It's a shame Cyclops isn't on the team. I was hoping he would be on the same team/book as Cable.

@danhimself:  Choice, choice. I haven't read the X-Men, Spider-man or Strange Season Ones, and I think he wrote Spider-man and X-Men one, but cheers for the heads up about his quality. The character line up has me sold.

I read the X-men and Spider-man Season Ones...skipped out on the rest...they were pretty good and I guess Marvel agrees since this is Hopeless's second book from Marvel Now....I agree I like the line up so I'm definitely going to check this out....I'm also interested to see how Hopeless does with an ongoing series set in the present...plus both of his books seem to have a completely different tone than the Season Ones

Cable and Colossus are too short in the picture. Colossus, in his armored form, should be 7 feet 6 inches tall. Cable should be 6 feet 8 inches tall.

HORRIBLE NEWS !!!!

Cable's new upcoming X-Force SUCKS....the costume designs SUCK....Cable's new arm design SUCKS....Was never ever a fan of Salvador Larocca...that makes this even worse...HUGE HUGE mistake on Marvel's part cancelling THE BEST X-Book in existence...for this garbage...Sales for this new team WILL NOT come close to matching Wolverine's X-Force....Sad SAD news...may stop reading comics for awhile now :(

Marvel finally FINALLY got an X-Book right w/ Yost's X-Force and later w/ Uncanny X-Force....AMAZING concept and the best X-Costume designs literally ever....now to be scrapped and forgotten so we can give the Rob Leifeld created Cable yet another chance at a FAILED run at X-Force....When will marvel learn ? Like Alpha Flight, a Cable led X-Force is doomed to fail....Meanwhile Wolverine's Uncanny X-Force team was an incredible book almost universally loved by the fans....We supported this book w/ absolute loyalty....great team and concept....selling incredibly well....So you cancel it to scrap the idea and bring back cable ??!!!

FAIL MARVEL....FAIL !!!.......I really hope this book TANKS HARD so Marvel can realize how badly they screwed up (and screwed over the fans) and bring Wolverine's black ops team back...They were full of win....This new book is full of FAIL :(
