Synopsis for "Dark Angel Saga Chapter 6: No Such Thing"
Archangel gets out of bed with a drowsy Pestilence as he goes to initiate his plan. At the same time, X-Force infiltrates Akkaba City while Famine get free by simply tapping his fingers, causing pain towards E.V.A. X-Force then split up; Deathlok goes to destroy the World while Fantomex and Deadpool go after Archangel. As they make their way through the city, Deadpool states that he still doesn't understand what's going on. Fantomex explains to him that Archangel plans to destroy all life on the planet before using the World and Life Seed to create new life and be worshiped as a god, like what he did at the Tabula Rasa environment. Suddenly, they are ambushed by AoA Blob and only Deadpool is left standing to fight him. Before Blob could devour him, Deadpool stabs his sword into Blob's tongue. Up above, Famine readies his drums, only for a recovered Wolverine to get the drop on him. Instead of killing him, he relieves Famine of his hands. Fantomex manages to crawl out from under Blob and dives into the water to cleanse himself of the stench.
Meanwhile, Archangel takes Psylocke out of prison, who still tries getting through to the man she loves inside to no avail. Archangel smugly tells her that in participating in X-Force, each kill brought him a step closer to dominating Warren Worthington. As he shows her the World, Genocide's mother confronts him, accusing him of turning her son into a monster. In response, Archangel bisects her, declaring that Genocide is serving evolution. This horrifies Psylocke, who compares him to Apocalypse.
As Fantomex gets out of the water, he is attacked by a giant AoA Iceman. Deadpool takes notice and leaps to attack. But this is a pointless attack, as Iceman conjures up more avatars. Iceman then freezes Deadpool and shatters him to pieces, to Fantomex's horror. Fantomex then runs for his life and reunites with E.V.A.
Wolverine get into psychic contact with Psylocke, who updates him on what's happening. He then orders her to put Archangel down. Psylocke then grabs a hidden gun and takes a shot, only to miss. This pleases Archangel as he declares her to be the bride he has been waiting for. Iceman then goes after Wolverine.
As the World ascends above the Arctic ice, Dark Beast has Genocide strapped up to a contraction that will unleashes his fire upon the entire Earth. He remains confident that no one can stop them. The page then shows an image of Ultimaton guarding the incubating En Sabah Nur, age 4832 days. Deathlok confronts Dark Beast, only to be attacked by War, who places the cyborg under his thrall. Dark Beast then instructs Genocide to begin.
Archangel places Psylocke on a pedestal, rolled over and plunges the Death Seed into her spine, declaring that she shall be his Queen and Horseman of Death.
The fate of the entire world rests on the shoulders of Deadpool! A new Death is born! Refugee mutants from the Age of Apocalypse descend on our world! Can the merc with a mouth hold off long enough for X-Force to regroup? Is there any hope of staving off the Age of Archangel? Not if Iceman and The Blob have their say. Monsters of doom and glory, Rick Remender (Venom, Punisher), Jerome Opeña (Punisher, Moon Knight) and legendary colorist Dean White (Avengers) reunite to serve up another boss bowl of breakneck action in the hottest book on the stands!

Another issue of Uncanny X-Force that could not dissapoint even if it tried.
Archangel just slept with Pestilence. Ga-wha..? What was the point of this, exactly? Hm. At least we see that the dark side of him is still in store even when he his human..that is interesting.
Famine's effects work on EVA, but not Deathlok? Wait..am I thinking of Death's powers? Crap. Anyways, Famine spits on Wolverine as he leaves. Big mistake. Spoiler alert: he gets his hands cut off later because of it. Awesome too. But at least before he went, we got to see his powers work on Blob. Because who didn't want that to happen? Seriously, who..?
So yeah, Blob came back. And he definitely sat on Fantomex. Ouch. Deadpool made some nice jokes about Blob in general being fat, but later Deadpool was no match for Iceman. Which reminds me, Iceman is not only here now, but apparently bad. And not just bad, but a total bad-ass. If you've read the issue, you know what I mean. Why can't 616 Iceman be that awesome? Not a villain, just have his powers to that extent. The last and only time I can think of Iceman being pretty cool with his powers was when he fought the Collective Man back in X-Men Vol 2 #160(ish). That was pretty cool, but the 295's power use in this issue doubles that.
The one thing I didn't like that much is how dumb Psylocke seems. How completely blind she is.. She sees her 'lover' kill Autumn Rolfson, and she totally take forever to try and attack him. Lamee. And as if the odds against X-Force weren't hard enough, Deathlok is added to the bad side by being controlled by War, and Psylocke is (going to be) added to the bad side with the seed thing. And Deadpool is dead? lol, yeah right.
That was just a minor thing though. I am still giving this book a 5 out of 5 stars. I just..have to. I loved ths story, the fighting scenes, and of course the artwork. As always, I can't wait for the next issue.--Johnnybravo44 (talk) 01:24, October 20, 2011 (UTC)
