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.

Rod Reis is back!!!!! I continue to love Ayala's run. They have proven to be good at mimicking the classic Claremont long-form style of X-Men storytelling while also leaving their own stamp on these characters. I hope this run gets to continue further into the next year.

Another solidly entertaining little adventure with the Marauders in space. It's cool to finally learn where Emma got a flying saucer. I'm ok with these apparent filler issues if they keep providing fun stories like this and the previous issue.

I'm not the biggest fan of Doom but despite my reservations Tini once again brings us another entertaining chapter in her ongoing Epic Fantasy Mutant Saga. I'm so glad she has managed to turn this title around into one of the X-books I consistently enjoy reading from month to month.

As a stand-alone issue, Marauders #23 is a lot of fun. Emma leads a team to help Banshee defend a storage of Krakoan medicine against the Reavers. Stories like this are what I want this comic to consistently be: a team of Mutant adventurers fighting for their nation. Duggan seems so unsure of what this book is or should be; resulting in tonal and quality whiplash.

Despite the downgrade in art, Hellions #14 is a great continuation in Wells ongoing X-Men drama. The team dynamics are shaken to the core as Tarn reveals Mr. Sinister's betrayal to the Hellions. But Psylocke's daughter is still being held by Essex, so it'll be interesting if she'll be able to stay in her team's good graces knowing she is compromised.

Marauders #22 further develops Wilhelmina's background (why does every female villain have to have a traumatic or sympathetic backstory?). Emma fans will especially love this issue as we see more of her past scheming involving Shaw's former wife. I'm still enjoying Marauders overall, but I'm hoping Duggan gets back to the high seas adventures soon. Sometimes it feels like he's not as interested in more

A well-paced issue that once again managed to thoroughly move several different subplots forward. The rescue scene with Illyana's team had a nice twist to it where for once the humans don't reject a mutant whose powers have just manifested. Ayala continues to deliver one of the best x-books out there right now!

Loved this issue. The Bigfoot focus was interesting and I have a feeling this mission is going to turn messy real quick. The letter pages were interesting and provided some nice background to the man obsessing over bigfoot, though I think I would've preferred seeing illustrated flashbacks.

Some fictions manifest in reality as dangerous, half-formed things. The Department of Truth relies on hunters to track down and contain these wild tulpas before they become too real. It's time for Cole Turner to see this side of the job firsthand. It's time for Cole Turner to join his first Bigfoot hunt.

I know a lot of people are tired of plant monsters invading this book but I gotta say I really liked this issue. Percy and Cassara do a great job showing these mutants working as a team; I do have to credit this team book for actually giving the spotlight to different members rather than just being another Wolverine-centric series. Excited to see more of Man-Slaughter and the return of Xeno!

A lot of people have lamented that many of the main books in this new era of mutantkind have been washed out with krakoan political discourse and intrigue and feature far less superhero-ing. And those complaints aren't unfounded either.

A really good set-up issue. Glad to see Nanny's mutant A.I. orphan back and I'm interested in seeing how this sub-plot will turn out (it's probably going to be a disaster for the Hellions, as always). And it looks like Sinister's scheming is finally blowing up in his face. So happy Hellions has made it this far and I hope to see it continue for a long time!
