    So: Cable, Marrow, Psylocke, Fantomex, MeMe and Doc Nemesis. Mehh, still no Colossus, Domino or Forge.
    Magneto, Cyke, Gambit, Psylocke, Green Arrow, Punisher, Winter Soldier, Sinestro.

    Cyclops was right.
    Green Arrow is the best book on the market

    I say again, Spurrier and this book are perfect for each other.

    This feels very similar to remenders. This X-Force seems to adopt Logan's X-Force but expands upon the mission statement.

    Edit: spurrier team is parralel to remenders..... I like it!!!!

    I Like Spurrier but Iíve never been a huge fan of X-force, Nemesis and Marrow are the only attractive characters for me due to their possible quibbling under Siís pen. Iím more interested into see Legionís path after legacy, even with another writer.

    For sure I'll pick issue one and decide from there on.

    Spurrier gives such good, thoughtful interviews. He does the best x positions I've seen.
    Now getting very excited for this, although I'll miss legacy.

    This book will only work if it can stay away from huge overarching stories, and if enough readers show consistent interest over it to help sustain it. If not it will be a great book that's over by issue 12.

    Spurrier's Nemesis is the best Nemesis.

    Spurrier just blew away and and all doubts I had about this book. Consider me psyched.

    I still wish Colossus and Domino were around, but you don't your cast to get too bloated. Despite that, I'm completely sold on the premise, and I hope the audience is such that Spurrier can fully explore all the little ideas he's got for this book.
    What else can I say but, "I love comics."

    Hmm quite possibly.

    Hope -- [Laughs] I have to be veeeerrry careful about what I say here. Hope has a role to play in this series, yes. Pretty much all I can say about that is that I think that role is going to be a cause of some discussion amongst her fans and her detractors alike.

    I'm not keen on the cast- so I probably won't buy it. I felt the cast of Cable and X-Force still had a way to go in terms of their tenure as X-Force members, most seemed rather personally invested. Not so much the Uncanny team bar Psylocke. I just hope atleast Colossus, Dom, Boom carry on being used.

    Even more excited for this after reading that.
    Loved his comment about Marrow having no powers:-

    He really does interview very well.

    Before I read that article I would have said that's crazy talk.
    But he does seem to suggest Hope is a catalyst of sorts.
