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

X-Force #1 cover 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.

Artist Rock He-Kim will be handling penciling duties on the new title.

Marvel’s other two X-Force titles, Uncanny X-Force and Cable and the X-Force, will end early next year, continuing what seems to be — intentional or not — a trend by which Marvel relaunches some of its books after about one year of publication. Cable and the X-Force debuted in December 2012; the current Uncanny X-Force‘s first issue came out in January of this year.

The new team will include Cable, Psylocke, Marrow (yes, that Marrow) and Fantomex. The book is back to focusing on a covert special-ops team helping the mutant cause, in part to pave the way for an upcoming X-Force movie, Spurrier said.

The first arc will focus on the “Alexandria incident,” a disaster that kills 3,000 people and severely damages human/mutant relations.
