Every decade of pop culture has its indelible moments of foolishness, frippery and eminently mockable memories. The 1990s does not contain more that’s terrible, silly or indefensible than other decades, it just seems that way. Especially in terms of superhero costumes… Welcome to Ten Things!
War, it ain’t nothing, but a heartbreaker! Friend only to the undertaker! Ooooh, war, it’s an enemy to all mankind! Welcome to Ten Things!
Press Release Journey back to the days of the 1990s, when two characters debuted who would change the face of comics – Cable & Deadpool! Today, Marvel is proud to announce the exciting DEADPOOL VS. X-FORCE, a new limited series from the explosive creative team of Duane Swierczynski and Pepe Larraz! In this all-new tale, we learn of the pair’s first meeting, well before their first comic book appearance in New Mutants #98, as Cable and his soon to be X-Force race through the timestream to stop the reckless mercenary Deadpool before he destroys American history for good!
Yesterday, social media sites and the nerd-net in general was ablaze with the subtle announcement that an X-Force movie was in the early stages of development. Tweets of confirmation from Rob Liefeld and who the writer and possible director will be came out yesterday and we will wrap everything nicely together for you after the jump.
Or – “Fantomex Has Always Been A Bit Creepy, But…” As the last volume of Uncanny X-Force ended, the three brains agglomerated into the body of the mutant known as Fantomex were cloned into individual bodies, leaving him with not only an evil counterpart but a female version of himself… …and now they’re dating. Raise your hand if “Eww?” Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Cable and his team have prevented the release of a terrible virus, saving humans, mutants and the future. Unfortunately, only they know the truth. The rest of the world thinks they are mutant terrorists. On the run from the government and the Avengers, they hide out in Mexico. Can Cable and X-Force clear their names before it is too late or, is there something more sinister over the horizon?
Uncanny X-Force has been rebooted once again, with a mostly new team and all new threats. Psylocke, Storm, Spiral, Puck, and some incarnation of Fantomex are all present – but how does the return of Bishop figure into all this? The Uncanny X-Force #1 review begins… now!
Cable and X-Force (not to be confused with Uncanny X-Force) have not been on the side of the angels. The last time Cable appeared in the Marvel Universe, he was trying to kill the Avengers. His X-Force is not much better. Most sided with Cyclops during Avengers vs. X-Men (A vs. X) crossover, including Colossus who was one of the Phoenix Five that tore up the world. With Cable’s time traveling knowledge, is he trying to stop a terrible future or creating one?
Cable and X-Force is the second of Dennis Hopeless’s books out this week. Do the adventures of time-hopping one-eyed semi-cyborg and his band of misfits have enough juice to keep them ahead of the pack? This Major Spoilers review has the answer.
