    This issue provided a predictable, but incredibly effective, return for one of Marvels finest characters. Read Full Review

    X-Force #48 is a good step towards Beast's final demise, earned ten times over. It's more of a step, though than a lunge as we await some ramifications and further developments to see where this story is going. Read Full Review

    Having not been following anything X-Force for some time, I was surprised how easy it was to slip into their world and how clear the storytelling is, something that not all X-Teams share currently. Read Full Review

    It's possible that future issues will prove the expectations established here wrong, but there's still nothing of much substance to be admired in X-Force #48. Read Full Review

    It’s a little contrived and not the best execution, but I’m completely intrigued about where this will go.

    Beast is back, and this time, it's not just the villainous one coming around to cause trouble. This issue brings back a version of Hank from the good old days, and one of the first things a person will notice is how different old Hank is compared to the modern, evil version of the character. Percy does a very good job of capturing old Hank's mannerisms and style, and Gill does good work here drawing Hank bouncing around on the page, hanging upside down from ceilings and capturing other small mannerisms with Hank and the other characters.

    There's also some interesting diologue with Sage and Logan, and it's rather reflective on how each character has viewed second chances and redemption throughout this series. Sage has always been more

    The story moves forward, but man is this issue ripe with characters being selectively competent as the plot requires. I guess it takes some courage on the writer's part to consciously, willfully, decide that *more clones* is a good idea in a Marvel book in 2024. I have to respect that.

    #ncbd thoughts on X-FORCE #48 by @benjamin.percy & @robertgill_art

    Hank McCoy has become a bad, bad, bad person and his genocidal tendencies leave no room for rehabilitation. The introduction of a clone, with memories limited to pre-Krakoa, could have made for quite the philosophical analysis of this story was happening at any other time other than this era’s swan song. The best part of this issue was the scene involving clone Beast learning about Krakoa and his namesake’s actions through a conversation with Black Tom. Deep character explorations aren’t in Percy’s wheelhouse, so it wasn’t a shock to see this kept at a surface-level, but the issue also didn’t play to Percy’s strengths. There were limited moments of more
