Note: Spoilers for the current X-Men event Extermination in this article.
As a result of events in the Extermination event, the band is getting back together. However, X-Force isn't getting back to play music or party, but to hunt down someone. We'll let new X-Force writer Ed Brisson tell us who and about their new mission:
"Right now we have a couple of different things going on with X-Force. Coming out of EXTERMINATION, Domino, Shatterstar, Cannonball, and Warpath are reeling from the loss of their mentor and have unanswered questions. They're on the hunt for this new Kid Cable to get those answers—some want his head, some just want to talk to him to find out what the hell is going on. Is this really their Cable? Is this an impostor?
"We're going to learn more about Kid Cable and establish what sets him apart for the Cable that people know. We're going to get into his history and have some really exciting stories cooking with a laundry list of X-Force villains." The writer concludes, "There are layers to be peeled back, but nothing is what it initially seems."
Hmmm… not sure why he did not mention Boom Boom. Dylan Burnett will be the artist on the series which will start on December 26.
