A Brilliant Conclusion Original Review by Tomlikesfries at Comic Vine


We start off the issue with Wolverine, who mourns the death of Daken. Remender presents brilliant and dramatic monologue, although it's short. And I swear there were damn ninjas cutting onions besides me when I was reading the comic! However, this issue wasn't all cheesy. I mean, there's Deadpool in it! There is funny and dramatic piece of dialogue between Genesis and Wade, who are becoming great friends.

It is explained that Fantomex's brain is divided in three parts. The Ex-Force (Ha ha, get it?) revives Jean-Phillipe, and three Fantomex (or is it Fantomexes?) come back, which, as you'll see, teases the start of a new X-Force and a new villain. This issue feels just like a last number, and it is basically an epilogue, the aftermath of the Final Execution, so, as expected, there isn't any action.

Noto's art is pretty good and fitting for this series, although I really miss Opeña's penciling. Nevertheless, faces look like faces and it isn't what I'd call inconsistent.



Overall, this was certainly a great conclusion to one of the best series I have ever read. It has touches of humor and drama with great dialogues. Aw, I don't want this to end! I doubt anyone could equal or do any better than what Remender has done here.

Uncanny X-Force #35 gets a 8/10.


What I Thought



See the Review Rating Overview page for more information on how I rate each comic.

Cover & Solicit - 3/5
Art, Colors, & Inking - 4/5
Layout & Flow - 3/5
Story - 3/5
Verdict - 4.1


I enjoyed this series and hated seeing it end. I'm enjoying the new Cable and X-Force and can't wait for the new Uncanny X-Force. This issue for me was OK but kinda a letdown. We wrap up the series and the team disbands. I wasn't fond of the interaction of Deadpool and Genesis, I mean since when is Deadpool all touchy feelie. I was also disappointed at how short of an explanation we received for Fantomex. I only hope the next series will continue to investigate his 3 new personas. I would recommend this as a read but probably as the TPB.
