The Final Execution arc steps it up a gear with this issue, as every player is now back on the board. X-Force are back from the future, we know who the Brotherhood are, and Evan knows the truth. Things are getting just a little bit epic. What I most appreciated here is that Remender is not content to just have the bad guys be an unstoppable evil force, that there is a hatred remaining between Mystique and Shadow King, that Daken and Sabretooth have this weird father/son relationship. I really loved their conversation here, how they hate Wolverine for being the same as them and not admitting it, very interesting stuff. I still almost feel sorry for Daken, and was Sabretooth’s pep talk there because perhaps he is having doubts? Hmm. As for X-Force themselves, they have something of an edge on the Brotherhood because they think most of them are dead, but I was surprised by how little this issue featured them once again, does this book perhaps have too much going on? One thing I did like was the last page, with Deadpool planning on killing Evan, this is the kind of Deadpool I like, he’s unpredictable and he’s dangerous, he’s not a joke. Speaking of Evan, man, I really feel sorry for him, the Brotherhood are really fucking him up, that bit with Fantomex/Uncle Cluster’s corpse was just messed-up. But then, X-Force only have themselves to blame. Was the opening scene set ‘three hours from now’ a real scene, or just a possible future? The tension is too much!
