Marvel is pleased to unveil the top-secret lineup of the all-new, all-deadly Uncanny
And as a special treat for Marvel.com readers, here's Mr. Remender himself to tell us all about the new team!
UNCANNY X-FORCE is revealed in X-MEN: SECOND COMING #2 art by Greg Land
"His philosophy on dealing with the threats that face mutants, and the Marvel Universe in general, diverge from those of most other heroes. He and the members of X-Force have each been twisted, programmed and manipulated by unpleasant people. They struggle to overcome their past, yet they accept that they are killers, each capable of the hard resolutions. They are stained, so it falls on their shoulders to do the ugly yet necessary jobs, to take out bad people who've earned such severe methodology. Wolverine and his co-captain Warren see eye-to-eye on the need for X-Force, and the need to keep it a secret."
"Weapon XIII was created by Weapon Plus to be the devil-may-care, international, super spy with a worldly distingué that the ladies love; the kid-friendly super hero face that would help the public digest his new band of Sentinels and their intended mutant genocide. Something went wrong, he escaped and has instead served to aid mutants and humanity. Described as a 'maze of mirrors,' he is unknowable, perhaps even to himself. Misdirection is his primary trick; he has a couple brains, maybe one is misdirecting the other. Wolverine thinks he steals to keep his mind off what Weapon Plus made him for: killing. He is a man without a purpose, he hopes X-Force will give him some."
"In it for Warren's money. So he'd tell you."
"Warren and Logan serve as co-captains with the understanding that when you set out to kill a man you should have a sounding board; two heads are better than one and a good idea in assuring that the target is absolutely deserving of X-Force's severe brand of settlement. Warren has philosophically begun to diverge from [Cyclops] and the X-Men; he still believes in Xavier's dream of integration as a feasible reality, but he has some very different ideas on the means. Warren is struggling with something inside, some other thing. The Uncanny X-Force's first adventure won't be easy on him. No. It might be bad."
"Betsy is conflicted. Her mind splintered and repaired, her life ended and renewed, and just in time to watch what is seemingly the end of days for mutantkind. She has been doing some deep soul searching within the team's new base, Cavern-X, and spending much time mediating on the severe turn her life and mind have taken since entering the Siege Perilous. She's looking for a way to reconnect with some part of who she was while using the abilities she has to save the world, and other mutants, more pain."
