    Comic Watch - Bethany W Pope Apr 25, 2019

    While not strictly an X-Force story (the crew are hardly in it) this issue presents a deeply satisfying glimpses into a possible future. It's well worth checking out. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Adrian Care Apr 10, 2019

    It's not yet up there with the better runs on an X-Force title, but if this issue's standard is maintained, this iteration of X-Force will grow a cult following on its own. For anyone groaning at the resurgent '90s trends, this is a great example of how there is something of value in every era of comics. A pleasant surprise of an issue you'll enjoy more than you'd expect to. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Apr 10, 2019

    The issue is a nice break with an interesting perspective and delivers some answers and a clearer idea as to what has been going on. It also creates some depth to a villain who has been gone for too long and has potential to become a great again. Brisson is putting together something really interesting dipping into the past (and future) while forging new concepts at the same time. Read Full Review

    Cable. A war. Stryfe. Apocalypse. Time travel. We've been here before. I can't help but feel offended. Did they think we wouldn't notice because Cable's young? Read Full Review

    Flashbacks can be fine in moderation, but as we see in X-Force, too many can lead to outright confusion. Read Full Review

    Now we know why Stryfes here but this was the weakest issue thus far. Too much time jumping confuses things and this issue is a lot of writing without telling us much more than we know. Lies to build an army to go destroy Kid Cable to ensure the world is ripped a part at the seams. Ed needs to reel this back in and let the Xforce deal some justice with destruction. Hoping next issue gets back to that.

    A little too dialogue heavy and the plot didn't really move much but the issue disclose what happened to some characters which I thought was neat.

    There are some very interesting elements in this book. The ties to continuity I enjoyed. Ties like Stryfe's belief that he is the true Nathan Summers which would come up in X-Cutioner's Song. Another good tie was Ahab and his hounds escaping after the Extermination series. The early version of Stryfe's mutant terrorist has some interesting characters and interactions as well. Zero is given more to do than just be a mode of transportation. The new characters create some potential for future foes of Kid Cable. What didn't always hit for me in this issue was the attempt to build Stryfe's self-doubt and inexperience as a leader. This issue focuses on Styfe and his attempt to find Nathan Dayspring (Kid Cable). Stryfe's motivation seems to be not more

    God I hate time travel.

    The issue brings some important answers but we need to push the story because in some way it feels to slow.

    It's a necessary story dump to let us know how it all came about. While it's needed it didn't feel well executed. Brisson moves around and wants to show Stryfe's conflict and his side of the hunt and yes well we get it but not as effective as i thought it would be. On to the next chapter. Couceiro handles the art well but i do miss burnett's unique style which has much more flow and fits the darker tone.

    What a disappointment after the first part of this story, basically nothing happens
