Format: Paperback
The story which runs through issues #14-19 of the Uncanny X-Force (2010 vintage), is collected as Uncanny X-Force - Vol. 4: The Dark Angel Saga - Book 2. This is yet another high-intensity high-octane action-packed adventure for the team, and, as with the previous volumes, there is plenty of character-development stuff to raise it above a run-of-the-mill high-intensity high-octane action-packed adventure. This one manages to tie together many plot threads from the three previous volumes in this series, spawn a couple of mysteries that appear in other contemporary titles, scramble any number of alternate futures, and launch a few new characters into the X-Men storylines, as well as terminating a few more.

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.

I'm reviewing Book 1 and Book 2 at the same time, as reading one without the other makes no sense. Basically, I think this is a terrific culmination of the previous story arc. The characters are thrown hard against the greatest dilemma of their time in X-Force, whether to kill their friend or not as his Apocalypse side takes over. They choose to try and save him, a course which throws them into their hardest battle yet, taking them into the AoA Universe and pitting them against some of the worst enemies of the Marvel Universe. One really feels the characters' struggles as they try and cope both physically and emotionally with what is demanded of them and added to this are the moral questions which make the X-Force book such a superior line. Ultimately, through all the horror, all the pain, something emerges, a sense that love can show through, in a fashion. I think to say more would do the book a diservice, as it is a wildy inventive ride which is best experienced first-hand, but all I would say is that if one is looking for a complex, thoughful ride which seriously questions the assumptions about right and wrong, read this.

The Uncanny X-Force series is easily one of the best X-men series I have ever read and I enjoyed every issue, and the Dark Angel Saga was the very best of the series.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just read it already. If you're an age old fan, then this is for you 31 Mar. 2014
By hellbender - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It makes me happy that there are still x-stories written that follow the path of what made the x books great for so many years. Equal to the gravitas of the situation at hand, is the family and emotional bond that these characters exude. That is , at least to me, what always set the X-Men aside from other superhero comics. A group of outsiders with a family bond and a drive to sacrifice everything for their perception of the greater good. Even to save a species who hates and fears them. The ideas presented by characters on both sides bring up valid points to the table, and in the end there is no good or bad, but a gray area that keeps the reader open to the idea that right and wrong can be subjective.
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.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great ending to the best stretch of this title 27 July 2014
By Ben Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This story really revolves around the relationship between Psylocke and Archangel, as the latter goes about as far off the deep end as one can go, and Betsy goes to extreme measures to try to save him. The ending was handled very well, and Remender does a fine job of bringing in "new" villains without having to necessarily create new characters from scratch. He accomplishes that by bringing over Age of Apocalypse versions of familiar characters, only with dramatically skewed personalities from what we are used to in the mainstream universe.

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.
5.0 out of 5 stars How could something be this good? 10 Jun. 2013
By Michael - Published on Amazon.com

If you have been reading Uncanny XForce since the begining, I'll have you know, this is the series of moments that you have been waiting for. Everything that has happened since the first arc plays into this story, and when I say everything, I mean, everything. As much as I love this series, it's hard to see how it could continue much further after this story, it's just like, where can they go from here? And, how could they ever top this emotional powerhouse of a tale? I read the story after this one, and I do have to say, I struggled with it. But I guess that is the consequence of writing something so brilliant within an ongoing series. I still have a couple of trades to go though so who knows, maybe this isn't the pinnacle of the series. I give it ALL THE STARS! If you want to get more in depth reviews from me on monthly comics and more, follow me on twitter @cineman3000!
4.0 out of 5 stars ... Interesting 20 July 2014
By Vultrimite - Published on Amazon.com

I didn't give this book five stars because it jumps around too much for me. However, I eventually caught on to the shifts. Some panels were dull and uninteresting. Unfortunately, the background stories of some of the characters are unclear, but you done have to read comics published before the second X-Force volume.
The artwork needs to be changed. The secondary artwork from the previous volume is amazing.
5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best stories I've ever read 22 Jan. 2016
By Kerri DeAndrade - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
So many layers and everything comes together in one of the best final chapters of any story I've ever read. The art is gorgeous, the characters are all brilliant in their own ways and you find yourself looking forward to their next moments no matter who they are. Brilliant.
