X-Force #6 Spoilers


Spoilers: Once Volga captures Psylocke, Fantomex and Marrow and imprisons Meme in a digital trap, the latter reminisces about the “Security and Defense Symposium”, where the Alexandria incident took place. Back then, Cable and Hope attended an Arms Trade Reform panel, ran by Ms. Qoboza. Qoboza revealed to her audience that the Expo directors asked her to leave since they found out she’s a mutant. Meme reminds that under Volga’s orders, she transmitted the death song into the lady’s earpiece. Before she would blow up, Cable ran to her expecting to bodyslide her. Volga’s goons then shot the super soldier serum in Cable’s arm. Cable cut off his arm, but Hope touched Nate, thus, mimicking the effects of the poison. Cable managed to bodyslide with Hope before Ms. Qoboza blew up. Back to Volga’s HQ, Cable and Dr. Nemesis appear before him. Volga understands that Cable did die, but has been cloned. The real Cable is in stasis, thus, Dr. Nemesis creates a new clone every single day with the same memories. Psylocke, Marrow and Fantomex are freed; X-Force battles Volga’s super soldiers. Psylocke manipulates Marrow to use her bones to impale them, while Fantomex attach teleportation devices to the remaining goons. Nemesis teleports them to outer space where they die.  Volga decides to self-destruct rather than revealing his secrets. Marrow protects X-Force against the explosion, but Cable “dies” once again. Volga’s powers seem unlimited and he manages to flee as energy projection. Back at X-Force’s HQ, a new clone of Cable is created whereas the real Cable and Hope remain in stasis. Psylocke then tells Meme that she better tell Cable who she really is: the real Meme has been brain dead since the plane crash, and Hope’s been riding piggyback on her powers ever since.

Wow... that's surprising. So the real MeMe is the member they lost, while the MeMe that's helping X-Force all along was Hope. Great twist! And since MeMe is brain dead, her body is still alive, thus explaining how Hope can mimic her powers.

Plus, Cable was several clones all along. Unexpected, as well.

Spurrier's X-Force is brilliant.

Great issue!!!

Wow awesome!!
This time I really wish I had not read the spoilers haha
How did Psylocke know who Meme really was??

I have to agreed, Spurrier has done an incredible job for only the first arc of X-force. Can't wait to see the next issue.

Also don't forget that Psylocke made an appearance in Wolverine and the X-men 5 and Uncanny Avengers 21.

Also, something to think about: even though the real Cable is alive, his three deceased clones were living beings just as him, right? This means that the X-Force has already lost four members.

I wonder how Dr. Nemesis feels creating these clones knowing that they will most likely die shortly after in brutal ways...

This arc has left me completely curious to see what's next.
How long are there gonna be Cable clones? Where is the original? When is he coming? Is he aware of this all? Is Betsy going to tell who Meme is??
