While X-Force was away in Age of Apocalypse dimension, the Dark Beast - the Hank McCoy from `over there' - has freed Archangel, who in turn has inherited Apocalypse's city under the North Pole, gained access to The World (the miniaturised lab) and hatched a plan to erase life on earth and remake it according to Apocalypse's vision. X-Force return from `over there' to find a reception committee waiting; they mostly escape, but Betsy remains as a prisoner of Archangel. While she tries to reason with him, the rest of the team attempt to stop the plan to end life as we know it. Eventually, with the help of some X-Men from `over there', and that clone that Fantomex was secretly growing, there is a big showdown, or possibly a series of showdowns, depending on your view of the continuity, and some happy endings; also some unhappy ones, not to mention an unrelated Continued Next Issue ending.
As I said above, this is another not-just-a-run-of-the-mill high-intensity high-octane action-packed adventure, with excellent artwork and scripting, with much tying-up of loose ends.
The effects of this series are still being felt, read it! Read it all! The re-relase of the uncanny x-force series under Marvel NOW! has just shown how good the Remender series was.

When I first picked up and of the new x-force, I expected marvel throwing out another marketing scheme trying to pander to fans by throwing some of their edgy characters in dark suits and making them go out and break Xavier`s cardinal rule of "though shall not kill". Instead I got tales that pulled together decades of story arcs and ideas and wove them into an amazing fabric in the X-Men style that has always put the x-books above the rest.
Anyway, I'll shut up about the books so you can stop reading this review and move onto something more meaningful. Like the awesome stories of these x books.
While it felt at times throughout this series that Fantomex is being forced on us a bit, I didn't mind the role he played in this one, as he is forced to play more of a leadership role with Wolverine incapacitated for much of the fight. Unfortunately this became a theme as things went on in this series, not always as well as they went here.
The art is really good up until the final issue, which was drawn by a different artist.
The artwork needs to be changed. The secondary artwork from the previous volume is amazing.
