Consistently boring and overrated. All ideas, no execution, IMO.

Not that I'm pre-judging this or anything.

Don't you think the opening scene HAD to be a clumsy homage to those Stan Lee origin stories?

The second issue was amazing. (because of Tony Moore, mostly)

The other 5 or 6 issues I've read weren't anything special.

He was like that before he got to Marvel, his Punisher run has tightened his skills.

I'm sure X-Force fans are thrilled.

Have you read Franken-Castle? It's excellent.

And I for one am looking forward to Uncanny X-Force, despite the Deadpool, it has Fantomex in it, it couldn't possibly be bad.

It gets better and better. Volume 5 was great. I read the GN thread, you've read a lot worse.

Reading cheap Marvel books makes the good stuff that much better. :wink:

It's uber-hipster to be anti-hipster.

Rick Remender was recommended to me as a writer, but I've read most of his stuff in the last year and outside of Fear Agent none of it was great and some of it was lousy. He is dead to me now.

Except for Fear Agent.
