Marvel Comics is on a roll bringing back some classics from Fantastic Four to Winter Soldier. This December, X-Force returns with a brand new team from writer Ed Brisson and artist Dylan Burnett. Domino, Cannoball, Shatterstar, Boom Boom, and Warpath are out for revenge.
Brisson told Marvel.com:
Coming out of Extermination, Domino, Shatterstar, Cannonball, and Warpath are reeling from the loss of their mentor and have unanswered questions. They’re on the hunt for this new Kid Cable to get those answers—some want his head, some just want to talk to him to find out what the hell is going on. Is this really their Cable? Is this an impostor?
It’s clear that I need to read Extermination. Between this and the upcoming X-Men: The Exterminated one-shot, this is definitely a major event for Marvel’s mutants. The series isn’t even finished yet!
X-Force has always been the one X-team that stood out the most for me. A lot of my favorite mutants have belonged to it over the years (namely Cable and Psylocke) but being able to bring back the original lineup in a new way is a huge honor. They’re just a bunch of badasses. It’s dope. I’m stoked.
This is a fun mix of characters and a solid creative team. I’m looking forward to what they cook up, especially after Burnett’s incredible work on Cosmic Ghost Rider.
X-Force #1 is due out on December 26th, 2018.
