How about that first issue, huh? You did buy it today, right? Good stuff. Sure some people may not be too happy with this dark road the X-Men are going down, but that's why they're not X-Men. With the way Marvel wants everyone to beat up on them, they need this. They have to be more offensive. It's like Cyclops said, "I'm not willing to wait until there are more dead mutants on our doorstep." He's come a long way. Surprising and a little sad that Cyclops of all people is the one that wants this team to exist.
The all-new X-Force has another reason to rip apart the Purifiers after Matthew Risman’s shocking actions! X-Force #2 starts with the newly re-formed X-Force team surrounded by the Purifiers and one of the X-Men’s most feared foes—Bastion! A Divided We Stand tie-in, X-Force #2 comes straight from the phenomenal writing duo of Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle (New X-Men) and includes absolutely stunning art by rising star artist Clayton Crain. This issue, in addition to X-Force #3-4, is also available with a bloody variant cover so intense we can’t even preview it!
Early reviews are in and everyone is raving about X-Force! Francis Davis of FractalMatter.com says, “X-Force is a compelling must read.” and Kevin Powers of Comicsbulletin.com says, “Anyone who likes mutants, military operations, Wolverine-esque violence and pure bad-assery is sure to love this title, because you get all of that rolled into one.”
Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on X-Force and all X-Men: Divided We Stand tie-ins, as the future of mutants in the Marvel universe is revealed and as critics continue to hail the current direction of the X-titles! Now that Risman has resorted to killing humans, there’s no telling how far he’ll go to destroy mutantkind and how does Bastion play into his plan to wipe out mutants? Find out the answers to these questions and more in the high-octane, action packed X-Force #2…along with the return of one of the X-Men’s deadliest foes!
