Dr. Nemesis looks like Kabal (Mortal Kombat) and Fantomex had a baby. And yes, the end result looks quite awesome.

Guys, you can really stop freaking out about the arm. If you click on the image to make it bigger you can see that he still has his normal arm, you can see the fist there underneath the robotic extension. The robotic arm is just a piece of equipment, and it makes sense too as Cable has long had essentially a metal shield there so he would want to keep one there as his style would be based around exposing that side.

As for the eyepatch, my guess is that it is probably some from of tech as well. With Forge on the team it is to be expected to see all kinds of odds and ends hanging about.

Colossus was quite vocal against xforce wasn't he ?. Weird, will be quite a change from uncanny.

Hmm i'm divided between "if it ain't broke than why fix it" (i like the current x-force series and apparently i'm not the only one)
and on the other hand i like the idea of a group of mutants being on the run and hunted by the avengers. When the x-men where outlaws (the time in australia was awesome) i liked them better than they are now with their own island and such.

I'm a fan of Larroca! Glad to see him on an X-book!

I'm liking Colossus's new costume. Hopefully he lost the Juggernaut's power. Dr Nemesis also look has improved IMO.

I think the robotic arm and eye patch is because even though he was cured the virus damages his body so greatly that this is the result.

I just checked the final issue of x-sanction, Hope not only fully removes all T/O virus, she completely restores his body. No cybernetics, 2 eyes. a couple of cool lookin scars. lol

I love how marvel keeps everything flowing smoothly from 1 story to the next :/

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!

Cable and Forge are awesome! However, I'm not sure if I like their look in this preview. Time will tell I guess.

@mattwing87: your post wasn't visible when i started typing. lol. great minds and all that. :)

why does Cable have a robot arm and an eye patch. I'm pretty sure Hope cured/restored him at the end of X-sanction.

Also, i will prob be getting this

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