    X-FORCE
    The mutant black-ops team returns in a new X-Force series written by Benjamin Percy (Green Arrow, Nightwing) and drawn by Joshua Cassara (Star Wars: Tie Fighter, Falcon). The series will hit shelves in November.

    From the press release:

    The cost of the future isn’t cheap. X-Force is the CIA of the mutant world — one half intelligence branch, one half special ops. Beast, Jean Grey and Sage on one side, Wolverine, Kid Omega and Domino on the other. In a perfect world, there would be no need for an X-Force. We’re not there… yet.

    Uncanny X-Men #183 Jul 1984
    "He'll Never Make Me Cry" First appearance of Selene.
    Back from his ordeal on Battleworld and Japan, Colossus has come to bring
    the hard news to Kitty Pryde that while he was gone, he fell in love with another.

    The revelation crushes Kitty; however, she hides the hurt from him until she returns to the room she shares with Illyana.
    Both Illyana and Lockheed try to comfort her when she breaks down into tears.

    Meanwhile, Storm checks on Rogue down in the Danger Room and saves her from a potentially lethal training session.
    When Storm attempts to understand what happened between her and Michael Rossi,
    Rogue only says that she is a monster, then she flees the room telling her to leave her alone.
    Upstairs, Colossus returns to the mansion and is confronted by Logan who tells Peter that the two of them
    are going to have a talk about Peter's break-up with Kitty and leave with Nightcrawler for a bar down in Manhattan.

    Upstairs, Kitty confides her feelings to Storm and tells her that she is taking
    some time to visit her parents and is not sure if she will be coming back.
    While in Dallas, Texas, Raven Darkholme and Valerie Cooper are en route to see the mutant inventor named Forge.
    They begin discussion of Senator Kelly's proposed Mutant control bill.
    As they discuss the arguments about mutant registration, Raven secretly muses over what Valerie would think
    if she knew one of the many mutants who she sees as a threat is the very person driving her to Forge.

    At a bar in Manhattan, Wolverine tries to get Colossus to realize that his "romance" with Zsaji
    on Battleworld was not a relationship, and the two come to odds over Peter's true feelings for Kitty.
    During the conversation, Logan picks up the Juggernaut's scent and realizes that their old foe is drinking at the bar.
    Not wishing for a fight to break out, Logan suggests that they leave.
    When Colossus decides to be difficult, the slightly drunk mutant stumbles and spills his drink on the Juggernaut.

    Spoiling for a fight after his defeat at the hands of Spider-Man, the Juggernaut picks a fight with Colossus.

    As the fight rages, they trash the bar, but ultimately the Juggernaut wins.

    When the fight is over, the Juggernaut asks Wolverine and Nightcrawler if they wish to fight.
    Logan says no, and the Juggernaut departs leaving money to pay for the damages.
    When they confront Colossus, he is angry with his friends for not helping.
    Logan points out that X-Men will help each other out for honor and sacrifice everything,
    like when Kitty was willing to marry Caliban so that the Morlocks would save his life.

    As he walks away Nightcrawler tells Wolverine he is unforgiving.
    However, Logan points out that Colossus needed to be taught a hard lesson about honor.
    As they walk away, they are unaware of a woman high on a rooftop who had managed to suck the life out of a man,
    leaving a burnt out husk. It is Selene, and she is glad to be walking the Earth once more after 2000 years.

    Uncanny X-Men #247 Aug 1989
    "The Light that Failed!"
    Before it is able to deal a death-blow to a beaten Rogue,
    the Master Mold finds itself under attack by the newly arrived X-Men.

    Using teamwork, the X-Men are able to apparently destroy the Sentinel,
    only to realize the battle has already taken the life of an innocent; Senator Kelly's wife, Sharon.
    With little warning, the Master Mold springs back to life.

    Using newly generated defenses and weapons,

    the rejuvenated Sentinel seems more than a match for the X-Men.
    Realizing that she still has the Siege Perilous in her possession, Dazzler throws the crystal amulet toward the Sentinel.
    The Siege Perilous grows to a tremendous size, large enough for the Master Mold to pass through.
    Rogue, sensing Dazzler's plan, uses her powers to push the Sentinel through the portal, but not without being dragged inside with it.
    Kelly blames mutants for his wife's death and ensures Shaw that his Sentinel project will get all required funding.
    Elsewhere the Reavers are plotting revenge on the X-Men, unaware that they are
    being watched by Nanny and the Orphan Maker, who want the X-Men for themselves.

    I hope Domino and Colossus resume their relationship.

    I never actually read Cable & X-Force, but I do remember their relationship was really well received at the time. It was the first thing that came to mind when I saw them both on the cover.

    Looking like Hickman has no interest in him and he’ll be an afterthought in a bloated X-Force that looks the teams worst premise yet.

    Oh, and Black Tom Cassidy.

    More years of misery for Colossus fans afoot.

    How would you feel about him leading an X-Men strike team based out of NYC alongside Iceman?

    I hate the idea of Colossus on an X-force type hit squad, or in a romance where he acts like a love sick puppy or as pathetically obsessed with Illyana. He's been my favorite character since I started reading X-men but I often wonder if he'd have been better off remaining dead than being reduced to a caricature.

    Peter and Dom were so darn cute together.
    Admiral of a fleet of ships—relationships!
    Comicbooks are nothing to me without ships and romance!

    In the art preview thread there is a part of an interview with the new writer of X-Force. He says this about Colossus: "And then there's Colossus. Can't say anything about his role...not yet...but there are some shockers ahead."

    Color me intrigued...and a little nervous.

    Reads to me (and just my assumption) that he may become a killer. I'm simply considering the history of X-Force, roles and violence involved. Stealth mode (another X-Force mode) isn't a shocker, so I can't imagine Petey becoming a ninja-like strong-man.

    There is an older image online that I've seen of an alternative Colossus holding a large weapon with a caption stating how (paraphrasing) a noble and gentle soul has become a hardened killer. I've always been intrigued by this image, and may welcome this version of Colossus (if nothing else because I miss him in the comics).
