There are innumerable and varying potential futures awaiting mankind. Between them exists only one constant: The rise of the Deathloks! Seeded in our present they grow, a time virus spreading across all possibilities, infiltrating the fate of mankind. One thing stands in their way; a man who shouldn’t exist.

They come in waves, an army of time displaced Deathlok troopers made from Earth’s greatest warriors; Captain America, Spider-Man, Elektra, Cyclops, Venom, The Thing, Bullseye–all soldiers in the army of Deathlok. All operating under one directive: Fantomex must die! The hottest book on the stands just gets hotter as fan favorite writer Rick Remender (Punisher, Fear Agent) is joined by superstar artist Esad Ribic (Wolverine, Loki)!

Users who pulled this comic:


  1. My excitement for this book is fading a bit but it is consistently quality.

  2. Ribic on interiors, didn’t follow his Wolverine and Loki work, but this should be interesting to see.

  3. Fantomex must die? OK, you sold me. I hope I am not disappointed…

  4. That first arc was truly awesome. I was a little worried about where they would be taking the story next but the concept behind this story arc sounds sufficiently crazy and perfectly fitting for this team. Top of my stack this week for sure!

  5. this cover seems very bright and happy…kinda

  6. The Uncanny X-Force has been one of my favorits so far. In art and story. Would hate to see it take a turn in something unpleasant, but I really can’t help but think that theres more back bone in the story to come.

  7. Love this book and the fact that Elektra is in this makes me that much more excited!

  8. Esad Ribic interiors? Fucking SOLD.
    Not to mention this is one my new favorite books and I don’t even like the X-Men.

  9. yeah, it’ll be interesting to see what Ribic does with the art.

    I really like the bright bubbly pop sensibilty with the colour though out the run so far

    it doesn’t make sense considering they all wear black and white costumes and are meant to be all serious

  10. through

  11. Just saw the previews, looks very good!

  12. I don’t know much about Ribic but I trust Remender.

  13. Love this book!

  14. Love this book-only marvel title that I buy too…more Warren and them metal wings…he did beat the crap out of Logan years ago

  15. this book is amazing. I seriously doubt they can ruin it in one issue…. although i have been fooled before. Just not a fan of deathlok… at all.

  16. Wow, man, Deathlok is getting a big push lately. There was that loooong storyline in Wolverine about him last year, too. I wonder if they’re prepping some kinda big Deathlock relaunch or event. Man, I’d love to read all 6 issues of THAT ongoing series.

  17. I don’t know how i feel about this issue. It was well written on the action side (i actually liked fantomex mad). But what the hell is with deadpool needing a shoulder to cry on? I mean, i thought he looked more shocked than the rest in the last issue, buti never expected him to call together the team for a group weep.

    Like i said, i’m not sure how i feel about this issue yet, my mind is still enveloping it. Someone tell me what i think haha.

  18. ok – that was good – I think. I really don’t understand Fantomex’s World but that is because I don’t know anything about the character. So not sure how I feel about this issue.

  19. Remember has a cool handle on the Morrison World stuff. But a majority of the issue felt off. THe Deadpool meeting thing just didn’t seem to make much sense character-wise. The art was a little odd in places. 3/5

  20. @PraxJarvin  I think it made as much sense as it needed to right now. Something is up with DP and it’ll probably all make sense later.

  21. I love Deathlok as a side character. I hope in this story he is more of a good-guy than just a controlled machine like in Jason Aaron’s Wolverine Weapon X story “Tomorrow Dies Today.”

  22. wow, that definately was not what i thought Ribic interiors to look like

  23. Yea, Ribic’s interiors looked more sketchy than I expected them to, bit of a downgrade from Opena, but was ok.

    DP feeling pangs of conscience, him not cashing Warren’s checks?  C’mon…it’s a puzzling reach by Remender, perhaps only for that sake, to puzzle us?  Maybe Betsy, but not Wade Wilson please. 

    I don’t think you can really put a knife in Thing.

  24. you could if its not really the Thing. Right? I dunno.

  25. I just realized. Has Psylocke had a line of dialogue between this issue and last?

  26. @oopsxlandmine  I think those were the Deathlok versions of the real thing, so that was the real Thing from the “Deathlok dimension” I guess, or I’m completely off on the premise of this new storyline.

  27. Fantomex, as portrayed here, is an awesome character. I haven’t looked at his past but what was laid out here was great.

  28. I might be in the minority here but I kind of like the moment of clarity for Deadpool. He’s always comic relief and for Remender to try to do something besides dick and fart jokes with him is commendable. Deadpool doesn’t have many lines that can be crossed. If fact killing kids might be the only one. I don’t think it’s out of character for him to have a reaction like that.

     @Minion I agree with you. Fantomex is becoming an awesome character in this book!

    My only complaint in the art department is when Fantomex kicks Electra, baby got back!

  29. So has all the years hanging out with Cable “saving the world” given Deadpool a conscience? I was confused by his characterization in this issue but I have faith that Remender will bring it home in the end.

  30. If you want Deadpool to be something other then a one-note “wacky” guy, you’re gonna need to have something beneath the surface. I applaud Remender trying to flesh Deadpool out into being something other then a hyperbolic parody of the genre.

    Yeah, haven’t read this issue.
