Judging from the cover for X-Force, and the solicitation shown last month, it seems that the member who will die is Cable. Of course, since Cable is the main character, I doubt he will really die, but how he survives may become a recurring mystery (he also survived a fatal explosion in X-Force #2). Plus, I don't see any handcuffs in Meme... could she be a traitor?

Anyway, X-Force seems very promising. I just hope it doesn't get cancelled too soon, since the sales numbers for its first issue was quite underwhelming for a #1...

As for X-Men, who could the man carrying Shogo be? His real father, maybe? Or the person who was running the hospital where Jubilee found Shogo (that is, before Arkea's meteor destroyed the hospital)? Well, whoever he is, he seems to be a bad guy, so the people criticizing X-Men for "only showing women as the main heroes and villains" shouldn't complain anymore (especially after the last issues had John Sublime and many New X-Men such as Hellion and Quentin Quire in important roles).
