X-Men, X-Force, Messiah CompleX: What’s Next?
From X-Factor to X-Men, "Messiah CompleX" to the return of X-Force, Marvel certainly isn’t making it easy for fans of their much-loved mutants to stay current with team rosters, allegiances and the number of mutants bopping around these days.
That’s why this interview with new X-Force series editor John Barber gets a nod for helping to sort out the mess of mutant storylines and provide some perspective on the new title’s place in the greater Marvel Universe. (And it gets extra points for showing off some great interior art!)
Cyclops knows what he’s asking them to do. But are they heroes? I don’t know. It’s like Wolverine tells them in the first issue, once they cross the line they’re crossing, they can’t go back. They’re not X-Men anymore. They might act like it sometimes, they might stand next to the X-Men, they might be friends with the X-Men, but deep down, Warpath, X-23 and Wolfsbane will be different.
The new X-Force ongoing series teams New X-Men scribes Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost with artist Clayton Crain, whose work on Ghost Rider: Trail of Tears still gives us the heebie-jeebies. X-Force #1 hits shelves Feb. 6.
