Uncanny X-Force #5 Preview

Uncanny X-Force #5
Cover by: Esad Ribic
Writer: Rick Remender
Pencils: Esad Ribic

The Story: “Deathlok Nation,” Part 1. There are innumerable and varying potential futures awaiting mankind. Between them exists only one constant: The rise of the Deathloks! Seeded in our present they grow, a time virus spreading across all possibilities, infiltrating the fate of mankind. One thing stands in their way; a man who shouldn't exist. They come in waves, an army of time displaced Deathlok troopers made from Earth's greatest warriors; Captain America, Spider-Man, Elektra, Cyclops, Venom, The Thing, Bullseye--all soldiers in the army of Deathlok. All operating under one directive: Fantomex must die! The hottest book on the stands just gets hotter as fan favorite writer Rick Remender (Punisher, Fear Agent) is joined by superstar artist Esad Ribic (Wolverine, Loki)!

Two things I'm happy to see in the second arc of this title:
1. Esad Ribic taking over interior art for the book. I hope he sticks around for awhile.
2. Fantomex being in the forefront of the story. He is quickly becoming a favorite for me.

I'm not usually a fan of Esad Ribic's art, but it looks good in these preview pages. I hope he keeps the good quality in the following pages.

And it's great to see Morrison's The World complex being revisited! After all, three UXF members are linked to it (Wolverine, Fantomex and Deadpool). I just hope Psylocke won't be pushed to the background in this new arc, she was so amazing in the first arc, I hope she still gets some cool action moments and good characterization in this next story as well!
