    This issue was a lesson in perfect pacing. It is an anxiety spike in paper form. Read Full Review

    X-Force #43 is a stable push towards Colossus' ongoing struggle to meet its conclusion finally. Ultimately this issue doesn't offer much outside of the setup with the cliffhanger, but it continues to handle the team dynamic well, giving each member a moment to shine. Read Full Review

    And for those peopl more

    I'm starting to get sick of these hyperconnected stories that are basically incomprehensible if you don't read 26 different series. What the hell happened at the Gala? How is Omega Red alive again?

    X-FORCE #43 is out this week and it reveals what Benjamin Percy agreed to so he could write his dream pairings in WEAPONS OF VENGEANCE, PREDATOR VS. WOLVERINE, and the upcoming Sabretooth War arc in WOLVERINE — Marvel made him take Colossus back and finish the drawn-out sleeper-agent storyline that as first introduced all the way back in X-FORCE #24. Poor Percy. Poor Sage, Domino, Kid Omega, Wolverine, Deadpool, and Omega Red. Most of all, poor us.

    When it was first revealed that Mikhail had been controlling his brother as part of a master plan to accumulate power for himself and Mother Russia, many thought it was the original groundwork being laid for the end of Krakoa. However, that was nearly two years ago and over that tim more
