  1. This is truly an awesome series, next two months it’s double-bubble jeez that will be pricey, I hate it that most of my favourite titles are of the higher price bracket.

    But I love it so what the hell!

  2. Noto!!

  3. Yeah, I never mind it when X-Force double-ships. Every issue is almost always four stars or higher.

    Love the villains here. Can’t wait for an arc all about ’em.

  4. Gotta love free digital copies! what a kick in the nuts to DC still charging a buck more for them.

    Also NOTO!!!!!!

    If i can’t have opena full time at least i get a killer cover

  5. There is a very good chance I love this.

  6. This was well worth the cost of a subscription.

    Phil Noto is great, so I’m expecting greatness.

    Glad to see that AvX is not encumbering this title.

  7. Remender + Noto = greatness.

    Have thoroughly enjoyed Remender’s entire run and cannot see that stopping. Can’t wait for this issue.

  8. This issue was confusing.

    Are the Omegas totally new characters? I know their memories are fake but are they cloned from previous villains?

    Was Deadpool inside that robot? How was he surfing the internet, why weren’t the Omegas trying to kill him?

    Professor X is in a wheelchair again? Was that a sign that that scene was a hallucination?

    • A: they are manufactured assassins. made from Omega Red materials. with fake memories.

      B: no. Deadpool made a wacky insta-assassin. the Omegas were toying with AOS Nightcrawler & Wolverine.

      C: that plus Jamie plus Angel getting his memories back (he does not have any, he was remade by the lifeseed), all suggest that is was a mental attack on her. likely from The Shadow King.

    • A. They’re cloned with genetic material from Omega Red? So who is Omega Red? Does he have any special significance to X-Force?

      B. First part makes sense. Second part makes sense but is lame. They think Deadpool killed their parents too. They should have been going after him as well.

      C. Sounds about right.

      Thanks.

    • Didn’t think I’d say this, but you actually make a good point. In the last issue, Wade was running away from the attack in his JC Penny shorts, and here we rejoin him in combat gear, somehow with full access to the heart of their operation? How could they not have tracked him? I suppose he just snuck in, but it seems a little sloppy to omit some of that detail.

    • B: Deadpool is so crazy, he defies logic & reality on a physical level.

      … I noticed that hole too, but I kinda liked it. If this were D&D, he’d be that goofy thief class character that slips away unnoticed the moment a fight starts, just to shank a mofo with a huge sausage king robot! -2 to defenses.

  9. This is the Uncanny X-Force that I love. I enjoyed the Otherworld arc, but it didn’t really feel like the same book I was previously reading, but this issue is really good and the Noto art was superb.

  10. I agree with most that a realistic-style of art fits more with the tone of this book than Tocchini’s on Otherworld, as nice to look at as it was. The appearance of the Skinless Man seems much more horrifying in this style, especially juxtaposed in front of a typical suburban neighborhood.

    I enjoyed a lot about this issue – from the haunting flashback of the Omegas’ memory implants, to Fantomex describing his heartbreak, to the comic relief of Steve Holt! I can’t wait to see him unleash that projectile cock.

  11. Steve Holt!

  12. “Wolverine gave me a puppy when I was a little boy and I love him with all my heart.”
    Goddamnit, Remender. Stop making me choke on my beer. Every time!

    This was awesome. I’m running out of accolades to shower upon this title. This is the only book that can have me genuinely concerned for our heroes one moment, then laughing out loud the next. Can’t wait to snack on the New Brotherhood. Looks chock full o’ nasties.

    POTW.

  13. I see that keithfury already covered this, but… “Steve Holt!”

  14. Sad Fantomex slumping around an orgy in his boxers & mask was the funniest thing I’ve seen in comics in a long time. That mask was killing me in those scenes. So glad Noto was on this issue.

  15. It’s amazing how constantly good this book has been. I have to disagree with Conor Kilpatrick, THIS is the best superhero comic being made today. Remender’s run on Uncan. X-Force was my first X-Men book and it has blown me away! Remender is pushing Scott Synder for best writer in my opinion.

  16. Great issue, ramped up the pressure, Restored my faith that there are still great stories to come from this team.
    Huge shout out to Dean White as well, the unsung hero of UXF from the start.

  17. I’m guessing im in the minority here but this issue pissed me off. With just one blurb all of a sudden warran is normal again where the hell has prof x been? And why is he such a dick? I have faith in Remender, Hopefully this is just someone in the brotherhood screwing with Betsy.

    • None of that was real. Psylocke was being psychically attacked.

    • venom, thought it was too much of a shock too, glad its just shadow king toying with betsy, but what if professor x really found out about what x force does, but if they really had to bring professor back into the fold its with shadow king.” remender!”

  18. Loved this book!
