Synopsis for "Live With This (Chapter 1)"

Fantomex, Ultimation and Evan journey around in space in E.V.A., and Fantomex tells him there are three kind of people in the world. Leaders, followers and destroyers. Evan asks which one Fantomex is, and he replies that the more important question is which one Evan is. Fantomex tells him that he cannot return to his parents and that he is going to be going to a school where he will continue his training. He also buries The World inside Ultimaton.

Meanwhile, Wolverine and Jean talk and Wolverine once again attempts to convince her to stay with him in his world. Jean tells him that she needs to stop her husband, and cannot stay.

Meanwhile, Deadpool and finds Sabretooth mourning his fallen comrades, striking up conversation based on Sabretooth's bathroom habits and how toilet paper technique is related to personality types, before telling him it is time for them to return.

X-Force takes the X-Men to Gateway who opens a portal to their world. Before they leave, Wolverine presents Sabretooth with a katana he was given by Ogun, who made him promise that if he ever met a man with more guts and honor, he would pass it along to him. Nightcrawler informs the X-Men that he will be staying behind, to make sure that the fugitives from the Age of Apocalypse like Iceman, Sugar Man, Dark Beast and Blob face justice.

Psylocke asks Warren to take her away, taking him to a place where they had recently shared a romantic moment. Warren still doesn't remember however, and Psylocke accepts that he is not the man she knew anymore. Wolverine confronts Fantomex about his cloning of Apocalypse, and Fantomex tells him he did it to see if the boy could truly be redeemed, thus determining if there was faith for himself yet. Wolverine agrees to take Evan to the school and tells Beast and Kitty Pryde all about X-Force. Angel is also sent to the school in order to be re-taught.

While hanging up a picture of their X-Force team in the cavern, Fantomex is kidnapped by Captain Britain and the Captain Britain Corps who take him to Otherworld to face justice. Captain Britain also orders Psylocke to be taken as well, because Otherworld needs her.

Pretty good epilogue as far as epilogue stories go. Remender manages to throw in a surprise or two in it as well, making it a good read.

Uncanny X-Force Vol 1 19

So it was a tad obvious that we’d see Genesis go off to the Jean Grey school once he was introduced, but it was surprising to see Beast and Shadowcat see X-Force just like that. That was a surprise to say the least, though I wasn’t exactly too happy about it. X-Force is slowly losing its secrecy. Magneto knows, and for whatever reason (especially now) has not told Cyclops. And know Beast and Shadowcat, the next two big guns on Wolverine’s side, find out about his secret. And right after the split too.

Angel heads off to school too, which seems a tad weird to me, but I suppose it has to make sense. He can’t stay with X-Force, that’s for sure. But where does this leave his money? Seriously, that kinda matters since he pays a lot of bills for the X-Men…

So we knew that Nightcrawler was going to stay behind, but no we have a perfect explanation as to why. It makes sense, really. What doesn’t make sense, however, is Jean and Sabretooth going back to their crap-shell-ghost-town-of-a-home. Though there is no use of them being in Earth-616, I guess.. Oh yeah, it was funny to see Kitty accidentally confuse Nightcrawler for her fuzzy elf.

Though I thought this was a pretty good issue, I’m left with a few questions: Not that I’m complaining, but where was Deathlok this issue? Why was Wolverine so mad at Fantomex? Is Ultimaton on the team now? Are we really supposed to believe The World is safe and secure just like that? Do we really need Deadpool making poop jokes? …do we really need Deadpool? I was fine without him the past two issues, to be honest. lol.

Wasn’t too big a fan of the art this issue so I’m glad to hear it’s just a one time thing, right? If you’re an X-Force fan and loved the Dark Angel Saga, you’re gonna want to go ahead and get this one for sure. I’ll give it a 4 out of 5 stars, but that’s only because the art turned me off, there was no action, and I wasn’t too pleased with Beast and Shadowcat learning of X-Force. Also, I’m not too big a fan of Captain Britain, so I’ll be passing on the next arc much like I did with the Deathlok arc. Let me know how the next few issues are in the future.
