‘X-Cessive Force’ Print Breaks Down All The Powers Of Marvel’s Most Violent Mutants

XCessiveHeader

I grew up in the '90s, so no matter what I do with the rest of my life, I will always have a certain amount of nostalgic affection for X-Force. The hyperviolent, gun-toting mutant strike force that was originally created by Rob Liefeld back in 1991 has gone through a lot of different lineups and changes over the years, but one thing they've always had in common is that they specialize in massive amounts of destruction.
But just how is that destruction carried out? Graphic designer Rogan Josh has the answer in a new poster that he made where the various rosters are broken down to show just what they can accomplish, whether it's through claws, blades, claw-blades, or just good old fashioned guns.

New ‘X-Force’ Title to Replace ‘Cable And The X-Force,’ ‘Uncanny X-Force’

X-Force top

Marvel has announced a new X-Force series, set to launch in February, as part of the publisher's All-New Marvel Now initiative. Despite the prominent presence of Cable, the new X-Force won't be "a steroidal macho-fest," says writer Si Spurrier, also of X-Men Legacy.

"It's a slick, nasty, oh-so-grim beast that'll cut your throat and blow up your headquarters before you even know it's there," he told USA Today.

Modern Heroics Done Right In Brian Wood And Olivier Coipel’s ‘X-Men’ #1 [Review]

X-Men. It's a bland title for a comic. No astonishment here; no bid for universal novelty; no claim to the ubiquitous label "uncanny". The new series, headlined by writer Brian Wood and penciller Olivier Coipel, is

Mutant Women of Earth: How Chris Claremont Reinvented the Female Superhero

untitled-2-1360644961

This April Brian Wood and Olivier Coipel launch a new X-Men title with a roster of Jubilee, Kitty Pryde, Psylocke, Rachel Grey, Rogue and Storm. That the team is all-female is unusual for a series that isn't defined along gender-lines. What makes the roster extraordinary is that it's an all-star line-up. These are first draft X-Men, and the book could easily have added more top picks -- Dazzler, Emma Frost, Jean Grey, Magik, Mystique -- and still been all-female.

It's hard to think of any other superhero team with such a strong bench of women, and it's especially hard to think of another team where so many female characters rose to prominence within the team itself. What these characters have in common is no mystery; they were all written by Chris Claremont, the man whose name is synonymous with "strong female characters."

‘Uncanny X-Force’ #1: Mutants Got Problems, Y’all [Review]

uxf01

The X-Men have been through some pretty rough stuff. That's actually kind of their deal; "going through rough stuff" is the default setting for those mutants, and the only time they're not going through rough stuff is when they've either just finished going through something terrible or are just about to go through something terrible, two states that tend to coexist on two or three pages about twice a year.

Right now, though, the X-Men h

Parting Shot: Psylocke Redesign By Bryan Lee O’Malley [Art]

untitled-1-1346273891

If you've been following Bryan Lee O'Malley's Twitter and Tumblr feeds, you are no doubt aware that the Scott Pilgrim creator has been mainlining a lot of vintage X-Men comics as of late, compelling him to create this reinterpretation of the beautiful and deadly and occasionally Japanese mutant ninja known as Psylocke. O'Malley's take on the character is notably thongless but does adapt the "thigh rings" element of her famously skimpy costume as modern leggings, rounded out with some fashionably chunky platform wedges.

Olympians: Superhero Bodies and What Real Athletes Look Like

There are certain phrases that have a special resonance for a Marvel kid like me. "Pocket dimension." "Lift (press)." "Marital status: unrevealed." This is the language of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe, and I used to pore over the pages of those little encyclopedias like I thought there was an exam coming. (I woul
