Review: Uncanny X-Force # 1

So the new issue for the Uncanny X-Force just hit stands and I am totally loving the new vibe and the new team dynamics.
Deadpool going solo on the mission and getting caught sounded and read much like a plot point (seeing how Deadpool can be a force to be reckoned with on his own). The Apocalypse base with the sacrificed people is also a new twist for the X-book that promises copious amounts of blood spilled and violence.

Warren and Psylocke hooking up once again is kind of a scratch in the head for me. We haven’t seen the two interact in the main X-books (particularly ever since Betsy returned in the Uncanny book) so seeing the two of them in bed once again is a mystery. I hope that Remender does not plan on skipping the whole process or it’s a part of the big plan…

Wolverine and Fantomex’s witty banter (particularly the one’s about what Logan plans to do with that expensive bottle of wine) was nice. A bit of tension and a bit of familiarity.

Opena’s art really reminds me of Leinil Yu’s artwork before he got a steady colorist and inker for his art.Dynamic and action packed, Opena can is definitely the perfect fit for the book.

The ending leaves a lot for the readers to think about and ponder on. Apocalypse as a child is a new twist although I’m really still waiting for the fallout of the events of Apocalypse and Wolverine and Warren’s encounter during “Messiah War”.

Totally action packed, totally awesome. Casual fans of X-Force and the individual characters should pick this up. In a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the highest, I would give the new ongoing by Rick Remender and Jerome Opena a big grand Hell yeah!
