    Nothing has happened that actually effects them, so far. I mean, they already did the "oh no we grow up to be evil" thing.

    Storyline-wise, yeah, it's kinda just TITANS OF TOMORROW PT. 2: THIS TIME IT'S PERSONAL or something. But I have really enjoyed most of the character interaction (at least scenes that don't involve Tim or Cassie), so I don't think it's a total loss.

    And I sorta like that they're throwing in crazy future versions of tons of young characters.

    Here's an interview with Mat Johnson about his original graphic novel, Incognegro, which is being published by Vertigo in February. It's sorta one of those books you never expect to see in comic form, and I'm pretty excited about getting it. http://forum.newsarama.com/showthread.php?t=137901

    Is there a reason for the weird costume for Rahne? On that cover promo, she looks like a wet chiuhawa- then the next two look like she's got skin tight, morphing latex over her face. While that's an interesting concept, why the hell can't they just draw her like she was in X-Factor years ago? I liked her like that...

    But I'll test the waters with it- my wife loves wolf-ish characters, and may take a shine to it if it's good enough. (to guage her likes, she waits very patiently for Astonishing Wolf-man)

    That teenager is a killing machine with little in the way of qualms when it comes to following the order to terminate with extreme prejudice. Rahne's probably the only one that doesn't really make any sense.

    And Scott has always been for encouraging people to just be themselves, eh? I just don't see anything to convince me that Scott Summers is really the kind of guy who sends children off to kill people, no matter how suited they are to the task. Not to mention thirty years of anti-Wolverine, and anti-killing sentiment, unless that was all just a front to keep Logan from boning Jean.....

    Haven't they been trying to instill qualms in X-23 to guide her away from her roots as a soulless killing machine?

    And you'd think that Warpath would be a terrible choice for a secret black ops group as well since the number of Native Americans with his power set consists of one, making him easily identifiable to anyone who happens to catch a glimpse of him in action.

    But really, the entire concept is stupid.

    Though I have nothing but love for the beauty of the cover artwork for the X-Force book, everything else about it causes me to roll my eyes and look foreward to 6 months from now when it will no longer exsist and as such be erased from my terrible memory.

    X-Force just seems so.. '90s.

    And not good '90s. Not Phil Urich Goiblin, Slingers, or PAD's X-Factor '90s. More like chromium foil and unwieldy shoulder accessories '90s.

    I liked the 90s (at least until I got too cool for comics after middle school), and I was a big fan of X-Force. While I wouldn't say no to a revival of the original X-Force, I'm not against this version. I also like Rahne and X-23 quite a bit, and Yost and Kyle haven't done me wrong so far, so I'm actually looking forward to seeing what they're going to do here.

    Frontline pretty much says outright that New Yorkers are on their own.
