After reading this article, how do you feel about Colossus being a new member of X-Force? Do you think it's the right place for him at the moment or do you think that he shouldn't be on this team?  Also, how long do you think that Colossus will be on this team?

It's odd...i mean with the happenings in Adjectiveless and his dealings with Domino, i could see a potential reason for his being there, but it's still...odd. I mean "Our first arc is the story of how Cable and his X-Force become the world's Most Wanted mutant terrorists."

"He has a new X-Force consisting of Colossus, Forge, Domino and Dr. Nemesis and they are all caught red-handed at the scene of a terrorist attack on a major American corporation whose CEO has expressed anti-mutant views."

Fact of the matter is, Adjectiveless is where we get this type of "behaviour", if Hopeless makes it so that Colossus just happened to be there, then it'll be a bit too ominous for my liking. I'm glad, though, at least he's not dead or written by Bendis.

Yeah, I'm glad that he's not dead too, although I'm not really sure how I feel about this since I haven't really read X-Force yet.  I'll hold my reservations on this until I read X-Force and Uncanny X-Force.

Wait. Forge? Didn't he die? And I don't like Colossus on this team, but that's just me.

I agree that Colossus seems like an odd fit on this team, but it would be interesting to see where this goes.

Isn't the team about stealth/assassination?

I'm against it, but I still hold onto the russian farmboy he used to be. He's been going down this road and I didn't want to see it sigh I just hope he questions Cable instead of just killing on command.

I think it's the perfect place for him after all he's been through. He won't go to Westchester, Utopia is likely done and besides Colossus on a small team is always interesting. It's where we see him make the more 'grey' decisions that make him one of the more intriguing characters in the X-verse. I'm also excited to see him interact with Nathan.

It also doesn't hurt that he'll be away from Bendis and on a much small roster which equals more panel time.

@Strafe Prower: He's fit into the Recon team easily. Besides I've seen Logan's team get busted out on each mission they go on, lol.

That was from Kyle's/Yost's run. The original X-force was more a militant version of X-men.

He's gone "evil" enough times that it makes perfect sense. Especially with the Juggy powers on board.

I agree that at least Bendis won't be handling him and maybe we'll see more stories on him since the story focus on the characters was done so well in X-Force.

@Rabbitearsblog: I'd rather have a guy that's new and hungry to put out a good product that the walking douche that is Brian Michael Bendis. *High fives?*

I'm surprised they're releasing another X-force title and even moreso at the roster. I dunno, it doesn't do a great deal for me, but that's likely because I'm not a huge Psylocke fan.

I wonder why they are releasing two X-Force titles.  Is it possible that all of the X-Men will soon join X-Force?

@Rabbitearsblog: Nah. X-force has always been a somewhat smallish group of characters. We're going to see the majority of the remaining X-men in Legacy and All New X-men. I've no idea why there are two. I can only assume they're just trying to cash in on the existing Uncanny X-Force name.

Cable's X-Force story seems much more interesting as they're going to be on the run and rumbling with Avengers or anyone that gets in their way.

I wonder if this series will turn into a detective series where they try to find out who framed them, if that is the case of the story.

@Rabbitearsblog: I do believe that's what Hopeless was saying in an interview last week. The only gripe I have with the book is the lack of female members, but I think he said there are one or two more come. I have the small hope of Boom Boom being on the team. Either way...they should stick a female interest the team for Petey. I'm tired of seeing Kitty living it up after burning him! How dare her!

I can't wait to see what Colossus would be like once he's on X-Force! Maybe they'll develop his character further (I hope).

I hope Colossus is not killed again.  His last death is still a bit too fresh for many fans.

Silly, Rabbitears! The only person that can kill Colossus is Colossus!

@Rickbarry: Bazinga!

So in an interview or whatever teasing the new Cable and X-Force series, it was mentioned that each member was selected for his/her specific role. What do we think Piotr's will be? He can fly a plane now! (Seriously, he's gonna be the tank)

@allthatsgeek: Well...ok...if we go by Team Fortress 2 roles it'll be.

The Heavy: Petey

The Soldier: Cable

The Engineer: Forge

The Medic: Dr. Nemesis

The Scout: Domino

That's a good combo for face punchin'!

If memory serves, he's been dead for quite some time, the legacy virus took him out. (unless I missed a resurrection?)

Nope. Wolverine restarted it after it was disbanded unknown to Cyclops.

I don't know, with Colossus and Cable as members it can go either way.

@Rickbarry: I was referring to current X-Force.

@soduh2: If you're talking specifically about Cable's I don't think any mention about it relating to Cyclops has been revealed.

Seems Hope will be a player as well on Cable's team. I'm not sure how I feel about this.

@god_spawn: Based from the ending of Avengers X-sanction, it seems Cable is on Cyclop's side. I mean, their enemies are the Avengers.
