    Kyle/Yost will always be special to me. It actually felt Black Ops-ish. I loved that. I'd vote for Remender's run if I could too.

    - None Of The Above

    The actual answer is "Counter X"-era Ellis/Edington

    The best XForce is definitely Liefield's. I only voted for my favorite: Humhpries.

    Remender (more polished and purposeful and focused version of KYost's a bit less gross also), Humphries (really just because I'm into Spiral), Spurrier (used obscure characters creatively), Hopeless (I like the decision to try to make them almost villains creating moral ambiguity and also the interesting characters and relationships), KYost (certainly praiseworthy in its originality and boldness but to me a bit gross and hard to read due to that), Liefeld (classic and I guess the longest staying power easily of any of these, but it did change over time even after Liefeld himself stopped making it, and probably improved without him)

    There's Remender's run, and then there's everything else. I say this having loved the Kyle/Yost run too.
    You brought back Wolverine

    Eh, Remender's. A grander book, a limited cast which allowed for more fleshing out, and a generally more interesting story. The Yost run was good enough, and it was the book that rebranded X-Force. Humphries, Spurrier, Hopeless all wrote such short runs, that I can't say I even managed to grow to like any of them. I didn't mind them, but... eh. As for Liefeld... I wasn't really into the X-TREME era. I was always looking into the more "underground" books that weren't so EXTREME!

    Remender though Hopeless was good. (X-Force is probably the only run from either writer that I like)

    Kyle/Yost is my favorite.

    I loved Remender's Uncanny until Fantomex took over as the main character. The book went downhill from there for me.

    I also enjoyed the Hopeless run and wish it had gotten a chance to go longer.

    Kyle/Yost....Remender had too much Fantomex. And no self respecting Brit would try that hard to be French.

    Although I love the original one and Spurrier's run was really a fun read, I voted Remender's because it had favourite characters of mine and the story was really well written!

    OG X-Force, but after Liefeld when Capullo took over. Then Remender's version.

    I voted for Remender's run but I think there's a lot to love in terms of character mix in ALL incarnations. I actually loved Liefeld's original run as well as Nicieza/Capullo's and Moore/Pollina with the grown-up New Mutants on the road... such a fun run! And Kyle & Yost were absolutely on fire on X-Force, following their also excellent run on New X-Men. Actually now that I think about it, while I didn't love the last few volumes I think this title has always managed to be a quality one throughout the years with a fun mix of characters.
