Things are going to get bloody for X-Force as they find themselves surrounded by Purifiers. What’s a mutant to do? Marvel sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of the second issue of the series.

Pencils & Cover by CLAYTON CRAIN

X-Force #2 starts with the newly re-formed X-Force team surrounded by the Purifiers and one of the X-Men’s most feared foes—Bastion! A Divided We Stand tie-in, X-Force #2 comes straight from the phenomenal writing duo of Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle (New X-Men) and includes absolutely stunning art by rising star artist Clayton Crain. This issue, in addition to X-Force #3-4, is also available with a bloody variant cover so intense we can’t even preview it!


X-Force #2 arrives March 5 and will sell for a mere $2.99.

    …but was Rahne’s presence really necessary? As of issue #1, I found myself quite displeased with her being in the X-Force. It pulled her straight out of the X-Factor without any really good reason, and I just hope that it will be only a brief episode. Something along the lines of “aw, I just don’t fit in here”.

    Yes, I am concerned about the X-Factor ;) What are they doing, removing one-third (maybe half?) of the regular cast? That doesn’t seem too good to me. I’d like to read this book for at least a few months more, you know.

    Isn’t Rahne’s involvement based on the possible presence of her father, Reverand Craig, in the Purifiers? Rahne being part of the team going after the Purifiers makes a lot more sense in that light.
