“Deathlok Nation,” Part 2
Buried deep, sequestered under a million years of unnatural evolution, Father, architect of The World, has a solution to the relentless and fruitless super human conflict that has left the Earth teetering on the brink of destruction. The Deathlok virus will spread, acclimate and control them all. In order to protect Earth’s heroes from the Deathlok virus, X-Force must kill The World’s Father, and his perfect future with him. But should they? How many people would a hero allow to die to ensure worldwide utopia?

Start reading with this Point One issue. When a situation calls for hard choices, the X-Force is there to step in. Lady Deathstrike, with the deadly Reavers at her side, set out to destroy the X-Men in their home! Deathstrike will obliterate the X-Men or die trying, and this new Uncanny X-Force is more than happy to oblige. As the line between right and wrong become more and more blurred, will the Uncanny X-Force be heralded as heroes…or villains?

Someone named 'Rheged' posted this at CBR's X-solicits thread.

Okay, so Uncanny X-Force #5.1 is supposed to be a starting point for reading, yet its story has nothing to do with what the current series is showing? Well, at least it brings Lady Deathstrike (I wonder if she's still Spiral's servant), I love her! Probably we won't see Betsy fighting her, though... but maybe they could team up to celebrate the old Sisterhood days?

About Age of X, I think the solicitations are wrong... aren't March's issues for Legacy and New Mutants supposed to be parts 4 and 5, respectively? Since Age of X Alpha is supposed to be part 1, in January, and the Legacy and New Mutants issues for February, parts 2 and 3...

Hmmm, Fsaker. Maybe Remender will allow Deathstrike to explain all the mystery behind how the Sisterhood kidnapped Betsy. You know all the stuff that Fraction glossed over in his hideous little Sisterhood arc... with the demon spirit Psylocke. One of the worst pieces I've seen in Marvel to this day... and I've been reading for over 20 years.

I guess the word kill will always pop up in X-Force.

FSaker said...

BTW, I usually love Bianchi's covers, but this one is weird...

Psylocke looks quite tranny-ish in it. And did Deadpool stuck a tennis ball inside his pants? Not cool.

But I'm sure the issue will be great, nevertheless!

Butterfly Beyond said...

@Rahsaan: I agree completely! It was an AWFUL arc. Red Queen (Or whoever...) goes through all this trouble when she could have just gone to the cemetery... at the school... which is where anyone with common sense would assume Jean's grave was... in plain sight.... UGH.
SO much wrong with that story.
& anything Crap Fraction writes is instant fail. I haven't bought Uncanny in so very very long.
I am hoping good things for X force!
