START READING with this Point One issue. When a situation calls for hard choices, the X-Force is there to step in. Lady Deathstrike, with the deadly Reavers at her side, set out to destroy the X-Men in their home! Deathstrike will obliterate the X-Men or die trying, and this new Uncanny X-Force is more than happy to oblige. As the line between right and wrong become more and more blurred, will the Uncanny X-Force be heralded as heroes…or villains?

    I really enjoy how Remender plays with the team dynamic.Everyone has a role, and every battle is like a game of chess. There's always adecisive strategy, and then a counter-strategy involved in the story'splotting. It's always cool to see these characters powers used in adverse ways.If I had one complaint, though, it would be that Fantomex seems ridiculouslyoverpowered. But then, of course, he's the guy who can't really be trusted atthe moment, so maybe his supremacy isn't such a gift to the team as much as itis a liability. Read Full Review

    Rafael Albuquerque's untamed passionate art is a departure from the controlled slickness of Jerome Opena's art, but it works well for the tale, which is all blood and guts (er"cybernetics) and passion. Albuquerque's art is high energy and rough around the edges, but in a good way that feels visceral and immediate. There are some frustrating inconsistencies, especially in the rendering of Psylocke, whose face we never quite get a feel for here, but for the most part the art is a good tonal match for Remender's brutal tale.
