I think the resurrection thing is so stupid.😰😰😰
But I still like most of the x books. The characters and dialogue were cheesey and cringey. It was a serious chore to finish this issue. Peace out X-Factor.

X-Force (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.

Overall it was pretty good. Not sure I'm a huge fan of them dying every issue so easily. Like, how the hell did they ever survive this long without being able to come back from the dead. And one thing that is really bothering me is how Wolverine gets blown in half. He heals AND is basically indestructible. He is not deadpool. I can't believe no one else has mentioned it. Is it adamentium lite? Ben more

Note that Logan and Quire's injuries exactly match where the previous page showed them going through the gate. It wasn't the commando's explosives that chopped them up, it was the gate shutting on them. I'm comfortable with "mysterious techno-organic teleportation malfunction" being strong enough to bisect Wolverine.

8.0

I willnsay this is a great storyline but it's still over rated im ny opinion. It's slightly confusing the way they jump from the past to the present to the future. The alternate timelines made some of the impactful things a little less interesting knowing that they will simply get as many do overs as they need. That is lame. I also don't like these backup bodies they have stored for every mutant. more

I think you didn't understand that there is no time travel because each timeline is from an Alternate reality and the one on our time is supposed to be the last one so they will not simply get as many over as they need

I must say I am not a huge fan of the direction Marvel seems to be going with Deadpool. Thebfirst Deadpool I ever read was the first issue of the Joe Kelly run. I have his whole run and when I think what deadpool should be as a character is how he wrote him. Liefeld's Deadpool was actually pretty borung and cliche until joe and his crew made him into an actual character.

This book feels like it's been treading water ever since 'Ric's' injury but I liked this issue well enough. I'm much happier to read Jurgens than Lobdell and I liked the art too.

Agreed. I guess I'm just used to indulging in a healthy dose of suspension of disbelief with comics and somehow this particular thing of facial recognition software just took me out of that. Really hard to suspend disbelief about that.

Even Green Arrow's beard, which is ridiculous when keeping up a secret ID, I was willing to overlook (for 50 years now) up until this one issue.

It was a decent issue. I thought the artwork was really good. I dont mind the whole ric grayson thing but he seems exactly like Dick Grayson but with no memory. They need to stop focusing on " the nightwings". They individually all suck as characters so none of them will be getting an expanded role when this storyline is over. And how has not one of these detectives not thought he is Nightwing alr more
