Yes there’s the obvious stuff like Venom joining the team and Captain Britain showing up in X-Force, but there’s more to it than that. The ‘Father’ here showed up in last month’s X-Force and there was a whole arc dedicated to Deathloks in that series early on. Is he building up to some mega Remend-event? Or maybe it’s just a coincidence and he just really likes Deathlok. Who knows?
Yeah, I am getting that vibe too. The thing I really like about Remender is his respect for continuity of the characters*. His recent contiguity (yes, this is the word I meant) of his books has been awesome, but then again it could be coming from strong editorial direction.
Deathlok also appears in Wolvie & X-Babies (not his book) questioning the future of the Genesis from the UXF Dark Angel.
I think it was in UXF that he has the characters comment on how they can be a part of so many teams; an obvious slight to the fact that you have characters concurrently on a mission while on the moon in another book.
I dunno, maybe he is positioning himself for an editor job.
