    Messiah War may have put some readers off X-Force and the blame for this should be placed firmly at the feet of editorial who used the crossover to bump Cable’s flagging sales in my opinion. Those who jumped ship, can climb aboard again as X-Force is back and better than ever! Read Full Review

The only problem is that I've got a sinking feeling that the upcoming Necrosha storyline could derail my enjoyment of this seriesit just doesn't appeal to me in the same way that a standard black ops XForce story would.
