X-Force Original Review by tdk_1997 at Comic Vine


We have the third issue of the series and things are finally moving a little bit faster than before. The story has been interesting and this issue was quite entertaining. We see how the team plans what to do and it is really impressive because the team has such good planners. Cable shows how smart he is by thinking how will every scenario end and he chooses the best one for his team.

The artwork of Salvador Larroca is finally starting to grow on me. I have never liked his style that much but in this book it kinda fits the story and how things are going on and I like what he does. His take on the characters is really impressive and my favorite one is his take on Colossus.In this issue he made a really awesome page where he describes how does Forge see the world and it was pretty mechanical and genius. And also the end page was really nice.

The story is entertaining and I really dig a book of Cable again. He looks like the perfect leader for this kind of a team and he looks awesome so far.His return is pretty good and everything is fine except that robotic arm.I don't know why did the creative team choose such a lame design for his new hand.It looks bigger than him and looks so lame. It doesn't fit his character at all.

Hope is a character that should be in this book because she is connected with Cable and she is part of who he is but she is a pretty annoying character for me to handle.Since her creation she has been one of my least favorite X-characters.She just seems to have too much confidence and at times she doesn't know what to do.She always has one explanation - Cable taught her everything and she continues to say that every time when she wants part of the action.Writers should make her say something else.

This book has been building up since the first issue and it is still building up for something.We still have building-up for the team as a whole and it looks like the pace is really slow.In this issue we finally get more than before development and it is still not enough.I have no idea what we should expect and what we are waiting for but it takes too much time than it should.

The books is nice. It entertains me and it has a lot of potential. It has some cool characters in it and I can't wait to see what is going to happen next with the team.There will be something big and I want it.

Score 3.5/5

Story - 4/5
Verdict - 4.3


I'm still waiting for my Colossus issue because since the first issue we see him and Cable going at it, but so far we still don't know why. I thought this was going to be it, mainly because of the cover and solicits, but lets just say I'm still waiting.  Otherwise I'm really enjoying this series. As I mentioned with Cable and X-Force #1, this team is like a dream team for me as I love every single character. The art in this issue was just as outstanding as the prior two. My only gripe is I really don't' know where this series is headed now. We start with what I thought was going to be a covert underground renegade team, but in this issue we get X-Force taking out a fast food company. While the issue does a good job of explaining why, it still left me wanting more. There was also a sequence of events toward the end that jumped around a bit, and felt a little rushed. I'm still looking forward to the next issue, and to see what changes the Phoenix Force causes on Colossus.
