X-Force #1

By: Ben Percy, Joshua Cassara
Released: Nov 6, 2019

THE HIGH PRICE OF A NEW DAWN!
X-Force is the CIA of the mutant world-one half intelligence branch, one half special ops. Beast, Jean Grey and Sage on one side, Wolverine, Kid Omega and Domino on the other. In a perfect world, there would be no need for an X-Force. We're not there...yet.

AMJ #1 was really good. I started reading ASM in my teens during the One More Day storyline. I loved those issues that were just these long arguments between MJ and Peter, so much so that I got to learn every line of hers by heart. So AMJ #1 hits close to home.

I usually enjoy comics written by Leah Williams, but this one is just not working for me. Other than that, Marvel's editors can not expect us to take both "Absolute Carnage" and "Contagion" seriously at the same time.
