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.
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.
