X-Force (Vol. 2) #2
‘Angels and Demons, Part 2’
Writer: Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle
Artist: Clayton Clay
I’ve been waiting a long time for this moment.
Decades, in fact.
The moment when Wolverine finally heads up a black ops X-Men unit.
So when this glorious moment finally does happen, I find I must endure the overly sanctimonious Cyclops willfully and repeatedly withholding critical mission information. Critical information that causes the mission to blow up.
And here is my favorite part. The former boy scout known as Cyclops then blames Wolverine for the mission failure.
The Wolverine I know, the Wolverine I love, would have gutted Cyclops on the spot. And while Cyke bled to death, Wolverine would have stood over his body and growled, “Bub, we do this my way or you go and find yourself a new leader.”
Oh, and the costumes still suck.
From Marvel (preview): “With one of their own already fallen, X-Force is out for blood. More blood. And they’ll stop at nothing to bring an end to the Purifiers’ plan to resurrect one of the X-Men’s greatest foes… It’s all-out war, with no quarter asked—and none given.” On sale Mar 05, 2008.
