    Short summary describing this issue.

    Exit Wounds last edited by sergiovse on 08/22/21 08:49AM View full history

    This issue relaunches X-Force into its entirely new territory that later relaunched under its own title as "X-Statix #1" once the fans of the traditional X-Force grew too annoyed and Marvel decided to distance itself for a time from all things Rob Liefeld by renaming X-Force to X-Statix, Cable to Soldier X and Deadpool to Agent X.

    This issue is also notable for it being Marvel's first core-universe comic to be published without the stamp of the Comics Code Authority since those notorious drug addiction issues of Spider-Man in the 70's.

    As for the content of the issue itself, here we are introduced to this new and different X-Force team that has accomplished the rare thing of gaining popularity regardless of their mutant status. They have done this by marketing themselves as a hardcore reality TV show.

    Member Sluk is killed early and the team has to replace him with the Anarchist. This new X-Force team is sent on a mission to save the boy band Boyz R Us. This mission ends up being a trap where only the Anarchist, Doop and U-Go Girl survive. Now without their leader Axel the group has no leadership.

    Exit Axel... Enter X-Force 0

    This comic marked a new age for Marvel comics.  No CCA stamp and a load of former Vertigo comic alumni: Peter Milligan (Shade The Changing Man and Enigma), Michael Allred (Vertigo Visions - The Geek) and former Vertigo editor Axel Alonso (Hellblazer and Preacher).  This comic has the old Karen Berger Vertigo using DCU character formula of taking a series that is not doing so well, taking a brave writer to take it in a different direction and making sure the artist can see the writer's vision to ...

    Wow.  I haven't read X-Force issues 1-115, so I can't imagine what a shock it was for that current readership to have gone from a book that featured 'regular' (if there is such a thing) mutants such as Cannonball, Warpath, Domino etc. to one with a whole new collection of very peculiar characters in a totally alien set up.  This comic, though, coincided with Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely on New X-Men, as well as X-treme X-Men.  The Marvel bosses had the minds firmly set on change and I must a...
