    As we continue into the second half of "The Final Execution," it looks like the stakes are higher than they've ever been for the X-Force. They know what could happen if their mission goes wrong, and not only do they have the Brotherhood to worry about when they get back (which includes Daken, Mystique, Shadow King, and many more), but there's also a certain important character from the Dark Angel Saga that's about to make a bang here Read Full Review

    Remender gives readers a lot to chew on in this book. Even if you ignore the obvious implications of the timeline being royally screwed up, there's still a lot to be said about destiny and fate, right and wrong, and life and death. Then there's Deadpool making some hilarious jokes at the future Punisher. Is it just me, or has Remender not only written a knockout series, but the best iteration of Deadpool ever? Read Full Review

    A creative reversal of the usual dynamic between good guy and bad guy combines with great character-work for Psylocke, a hilarious Deadpool moment, and excellent use of time-travel. From Psylocke dreaming of Warren to Deadpool poking fun at Castle, this is one of those great “you'll laugh and you'll cry” issues. Read Full Review

    It's fair to say that the ending of this comic (without spoiling it) suggests an interesting direction for Psylocke, and one that maybe even revisits some material from the earliest appearances of her current incarnation. For longtime X-Men fans, this is the X-title to read. As Remender heads towards the next arc, it seems likely this book is building towards a fantastic conclusion, and issues like this suggest he's playing a fantastic long game. Read Full Review

    I understand I may be nitpicking a little bit, but I really do think it's important to have consistency. You can't show Psylocke unable to move in one panel and then depict her running across the page in the next. It's hard to understand how severe her injury was. Aside from this detail, however, this issue is yet another example of the complexities of Betsy's character. Remender isn't only dealing with surface issues, he's really digging deep into her character and dissecting her -- and it's really interesting to see. Read Full Review

    It's a cliche that actions have consequences but that's just what Rick Remender and Julian Totino Tedesco are exploring in Uncanny X-Force #29, the actions of the team, stretching back to the killing of Apocalypse. In this issue, we see the future and the mutants win. They're the heroes that saved the world. But it required killing Betsy has been forced to kill too much. She's losing herself in her actions and Remender, in this issue, is showing us a glimpse of hope that Betsy may be able to pull out of the cruel path that she's been on. Read Full Review
