I usually buy Deadpool so thought would branch out a bit (although Deadpool is still in this and steals the show), it was not quite as good as I was expecting as the artwork is very different and in my opinion not as good.

The story is that Apocalypse has been reborn and X-Force (Wolverine, Deadpool, Psylocke, Fantomex & Angel) are trying to stop him becoming the all powerful villain we all know, it violent and tells a good story but is a bit drawn out - will I get the next one? yes.

The story which runs through issues #1-4 of the Uncanny X-Force (2010 vintage), is collected, along with a story from `Wolverine: Road to Hell', as Uncanny X-Force: Apocalypse Solution (Marvel Premiere Editions). This is my first outing with the X-Force, and this appears to be a `new start' for the team, as Wolverine, Fantomex, Angel, Psylocke and Deadpool bond and then track down a new Apocalypse, spending most of the four issues battling through his defences - with much flashbacking to fill in backgrounds of the defenders - before stopping to consider the morality of their actions once they reach Apocalypse himself. Fortunately, one of their number has none, and gets the job done. There are also some interpersonal relationship issues explored before the main action commences, and which inform some of the team-members' actions during the story.

These are very powerful characters, and they deploy their powers in imaginative and unusual ways, to overcome their very powerful opponents, who also deploy their very powerful abilities in imaginative ways. The problem with characters that have such awesome powers is making their use of those powers interesting, and finding suitable threats, and here the interactions of the characters are used to make the story interesting. I'm not sure how many stories with the intensity of action and threat exhibited here can be run back to back before we reach the `so what' barrier. I have read the second volume of this series, and they have managed to keep the momentum going there, at least.

What a gorgeous looking book! The art is just perfect, particularly the covers. The story itself is also well handled, if very straight forward. This team has some of my favourite characters and balances them perfectly, giving each their chance for development and their moment to shine. It's not the most densely plotted book in the world, but it doesn't need to be, when the action sizzles and the dialogue is so sharp and witty. Loved it.

Remender is really very good at encompassing a distinct voice for each of his characters and as with all X-men comics, it's the quick fire back and forth between the characters that's the real draw. Here it's comparable with the writing of Joss Whedon's run on astonishing X-men, which is really the highest accolade you can give. Fantomex and Deadpool are especially well written and it's nice to see Betsy's character, once again, become more than just a mopy ninja.

For me the reason this story isn't five stars is because it probably takes it's self a little to seriously, with the whole 'we're X-force and we kill' making me especially uncomfortable as once you remove the basic morality of super heroes it kinda just becomes pulp. The contradictions between wolverine personal morality depending on what comic he's in is something I find especially annoying.

Well worth the money though, one of the best X-books out there.

You’ve read this story a thousand times before: assassins break into impenetrable place, overcome obstacles, kill target. Uncanny X-Force joins the ranks of Secret Avengers, Thunderbolts, Suicide Squad, and probably even more groups that I’m forgetting, of Superheroes What Done Kills Stuff In A Morally Questionable Team.

Archangel, Wolverine, Psylocke, Fantomex and Deadpool are Uncanny X-Force, the team of killers who do the dirty missions that the good ’n’ proper X-Men don’t touch. This time around they’ve got to kill Apocalypse - except here he’s a kid. Do they kill a child even though they know he grows up to become a terrible villain? Let the hand-wringing commence!

I’m baffled as to why this series is regarded so highly when it’s so extremely ordinary at best. Apparently the dialogue is great but it isn’t - unless people really loved Deadpool’s bad jokes: “Why did the nickel jump off the building but the dime didn’t? Dime had more cents” and “How do you kill a circus? Go for the juggler”. Boom boom. Maybe it was the pun of having the team fight the Final Horsemen: War, Famine, Pestilence and Death - geddit, the four horsemen of Apocalypse (even though they don’t have horses)?

As if often the case with anything X-related there’s a few questions over what’s going on with the characters unless you read every X-book published. Angel is now Archangel and has this Jekyll/Hyde duality to him for some reason. Oh, the angst, the angst of it all (ie. typical X-Men “drama”)! He’s also going out with Psylocke because you can’t have an X-Men comic without some soap-opera relationship stuff. Also not sure why Apocalypse is a kid all of a sudden but that character changes almost every time he appears because he’s always been so poorly defined so it’s no biggie.
