Review: This comic is dark and i mean really dark personally one of the greatest things for me about this comic is how the dynamic has completely shifted in previous X-Men comics Cyclops is the angel on the X-Mens shoulder trying to get them on the righteous path bla bla bla where as Wolverine is usually the devil on the shoulder trying to stop every one being such pansys. Well in this Cyclops finally grows a pair and realises that the old peaceful X-Men wont cut it and that drastic measures must be taken if they are to survive. The story is serviceable although some of the reasons they give for some of the characters joining the X-Force is slightly patchy. The art is also pretty good nothing special its never going to win any awards but it does the job of being dark and gritty. Overall a good comic worth a read

Grade: B

  3. X-Force is amazing. I've read the most recent ones (From 2010 to now) and they've changed pretty much everyone in the team, except Wolverine. (HEY THAT RHYMED) But it still remains as twisted and awesomely dark as it always has been :)
