X-Force #5 Spoilers

Spoilers: After retrieving Antonio’s memories, X-Force finds out that he was blackmailed into stealing alternate reality tech for Volga, otherwise his family would be killed. Among the tech stolen was a serum that turns regular people into super-soldiers for a short time before it kills the users. The team tracks down Volga’s whereabouts and plan to assault his airship by surprise. Marrow tells the “baby” in her mind that her memories are blurred and she doesn’t remember much of her life before she was kidnapped. Sarah sees Volga’s airship and warns the others. Psylocke and Fantomex are ready to go in. Cable shoots the aircraft with a missile and opens a hole. Marrow enters and remembers that unlike Antonio, she was well treated by Volga’s staff. X-Force regroups inside the ship. Before realizing it was a trap, MeMe is taken down. Volga appears before them, tells Marrow she lost weight and orders his super-soldiers to deal with X-Force. Marrow remembers that she was dumped into Alexandria and that Cable saved her, but her “baby” was killed: she was pregnant. It seems X-Force and Marrow already knew this, and Doctor Nemesis had built a healing suppressor for Marrow to bury these painful memories. Volga then reveals to Marrow that she wasn’t kidnapped. She volunteered to the experience to get her powers back even though she knew all the risks of losing her unborn baby. Volga’s super-soldiers overcome Marrow, Fantomex and Psylocke and imprison them. Volga deals with Cable by himself and reveals that he injected Natham with the short lifespan serum. Volga doesn’t know how Cable survived this long. Volga places a detonator on Cable’s chest and kicks him out of his aircraft. Cable is left to die alone in the desert until he explodes.

I have to say it was a great issue done by Spurrier. It looks like he stage a whole new level with the members of X-fore when it comes to fighting against a corrupt covert black ops design with mutant powers and new dangerous abilities we have never seen before. Right now, it is X-force lowest point as they are utterly defeated by the evil Volga and his mercenaries. I really love the art done by Molina, it looks like he improve his style of drawing since he was drawing for X-men.
