X-Force #6 Review: Bloody Finale

When ‘X-Force’ launched on the heels of “Messiah CompleX” in April 2008, it seemed a perfect fit for the bloody, desperate world of the X-Men.

But since then, ‘Uncanny X-Men’ #500 moved the mutant community to the happy shininess of San Francisco, and now ‘X-Force’ seems jarringly at odds with the rest of the X-Men universe, especially with Wolverine, Angel and Cyclops appearing in both series.

And if the final page is any indication, these conflicting and contradictory visions are going to be with us for some time to come.

That said, Wolverine is given the best line of the issue, “Sixteen apiece. Kill’em all.”

From Marvel (preview): “The shocking finale to the first arc! Wolverine versus Bastion. Archangel versus the Choir. Wolfsbane versus her father. X-23 versus Matthew Risman. Warpath versus…? This is how a species dies.” On sale August 27, 2008.
