I’m liking this a bit better than the un-uncanny version it’s replacing… mostly due to the Betsy/Warren dynamic. I was glad to see them reuniting and seeing her help with the razorwing subplot should be interesting. Wolverine is a no-brainer for the proactive X-team, but add Fantomex and Deadpool to the mix and it’s downright volatile not to mention quite entertaining. I’m glad to see Cyclops out of the killin biz, didn’t suit him.
The X-Force are in deep trouble. Stranded in the Blue Area of the moon at the hands of the Last Horsemen, EVA decimated, the team scattered, diseased and terribly injured, the situation is beyond hopeless. Ozymandias and the Akkaba Society are a step closer to instigating a new age. Apocalypse is ascending. X-Force is down, outmanned and without aid. That’s it – someone’s going feral.
These new Horsemen kinda make the old batch pale by comparison. Or do they, seems that the Horsemen usually overpower the surprised X-Men, but the mutants prevail once they have their wits about them. But will they have time to regain them? Wolverine and Deadpool have healing factors so a few horribly fatal viruses won’t hold them down for the count.
