Colossus wearing braces? No thanks. What the hell has the cool Dr. Nemesis done, he looks ridiculous. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, dumb ass designers.

@Zoch81: That's too bad, but you always have to keep an open mind about new writers/characters. Who knew the new Uncanny X-force was going to be good? I remember people having issues when they removed warpath, x-23 etc, but people enjoy the series a great deal.

Why does Cable have that long mechanical arm? I thought Hope cured him of the TO virus and he was back to normal?

i think is some sort of gauntlet ...i hope so.

I dont think I will picking this up any more just not feeling the writer I dont like any new members of team which was shame was enjoying X-Force with current writer and current members of team but least it had good run I guess time to move onto the Uncanny Avengers.

This looks awesome!! Cable in the lead! Forge is back! Domino in a key team role! This seems like a good fit for Colossus after his "Phoenossonaut" days! And I'm loving that Dr. Nemesis redesign! Finally, something that interests me about Marvel NOW!

I agree! Heck, anything X-related without Wolverine is good to me!

Damn. I'm enjoying the current 'adjective-less' X-Men team of Storm, Pixie, Psylocke, Domino and Colossus; Brian Wood and David Lopez are crafting a fantastic run. I knew it wouldn't last, but it still sucks knowing it'll end.

Yup. Looks like the Domino/Colossus business going on there, somewhat bleeds into here.

nice roster, glad we finally know what happens to Collosus after avx and it will be interesting to see how he deals with his sister still bein with Scott & Emma, but it makes me sick to stomach that Uncanny X-Force will be over...

good to see Forge & Domino getting some limelight again tho

Colossus is 7' 5" so why is he shown on the graded height bars as at most 7' 2"......,

He is adjusting his weight to one foot, or the right side of his body. If he was standing completely straight up, he'd be about 7'5".

My thoughts:

  • Why does Cable have a nick fury eyepatch? And why the anime mech arm?
  • Colossus looks great, but why no juggernaut helmet?
  • I like the color scheme for the team. The addition of the orange works with the gray/black of X-Force.
  • Forge looks good except for the wrestling boots.
  • Poor, poor Dr. Nemesis. You were iconic and unique, and now you're a knockoff GI Joe villain.

His arm & eye had the TO virus without it there is nothing their so prosthetic/mech arm & eye patch is needed

Colossus doesn't wear that helmet all the time. when he wants too or when he gets pissed it materializes

I will be checking this out. I became a big fan of Domino after reading through the More Recent X-force books. Not sure if I'll keep getting it each month, but its worth taking a look at I think.

Woot an X-Book without Wolverine I am shocked. The line up has potential. Cable is one of my favorite comic book characters and Domino and Colossus can be great with good writing. Forge is an interesting addition, hopefully they will address what he has been up to. Dr Nemesis has a history as a Nazi hunter but is in need of more character development. We will finally get to see Cable in action for the 1st time since Avengers - X-Sanction #4 (unless he shows up in AvX #12) and now that he is cured of the TK virus will he have access to his full powers of heil they be conviently weakened like X-Man in New Mutants. This book has a lot to live up to due to how good the recient X-Forec and Uncanny X-Force were. I hope the creative team is up to it.

its gonna be REALLY tough to follow remender's run. that was the best book marvel has put out in years. not sure about this.

marvel is suddenly putting a lot of stock hopeless. cool, but kinda odd that its so sudden. or maybe its not and i dont know something

@fodigg:

Colossus looks great, but why no juggernaut helmet?

He was able to go Juggernaut in issue 18 of UXM which is set after him and Magik losing the PF. And he had all his hair back :D. If the UA are following them, I'd say he might need it.

so what is happening to uncanny x-force

I'm actually looking forward to this. I've always been a fan of Forge, and hope they stick to the mystical side of him, and perhaps get Storm and him to reconnect...Cable too, has been one of my favorites. This new X-Force team isn't about "kill first, ask questions later" - I think it's more of finding the threats that are already there...and become proactive with them...there's a slight different, not too sure what but...a slight one. Since Colossus is there, hopefully Magik will show up, especially considering Forge's connection to mysticism. I've always found it interesting that Marvel can't quite seem to deal with magic side of the Marvel Universe, and often times, complicated characters get all mixed up in their shuffles...

this is like so dope. one of the best cover reveals from the whole Marvel NOW! lot. I do need them to explain how the heck Forge came back tho. As long as he is not same crazy guy he was when he died i'm cool with it. also loving the fact that Colossus and Domino are on this team. Cable and Domino make such an awesome team. and Dr. Nemesis looks very cool. This will definitely be on my read list.

Was never a Cable fan, and TBH, think he's a dinosaur from the everything has to be grim n gritty era. Never 'got' Domino, as i don't understand her appeal at all, and Forge is better at behind the scenes role. Nemesis' new look , though, is 100 percent better than it was.

Finally Colossus doesn't look like a standard bruiser anymore! (at least a Jug-based bruiser anyways.) Hopefully he returns to be the badass mutant he always was before the whole selling your soul to the Phoenix while possessing Cytorrak thing.
