As X-citement for the upcoming Uncanny X-Men relaunch reaches a fever pitch, Marvel has thrown more chum into the fan-shark-infested waters with five interior pages from the upcoming X-Force #1. Revealed EX-X-XCLUSIVELY in an interview with Marvel Media Partner CBR, the pages show the X-Force team facing armed thugs in a battle in a warehouse, while in another scene, Kid Cable faces what could be the same armed thugs while wearing half a Deathlock as a backpack.
Maybe the thugs are the fashion police?
On the Kid Cable front, writer Ed Brisson had to say:
There’s a trail of breadcrumbs that X-Force are following that make it look as though Kid Cable is up to no good. He’s possibly about to set off an international incident and no one knows why.
Kid Cable and Deathlok are in Transia on a case of their own, but the real object of that operation is something we don’t reveal for a few issues. There are layers to be peeled back, but nothing is what it initially seems.
We’re going to learn more about Kid Cable and establish what sets him apart from 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 thing about Kid Cable is that, to him, everything is black and white, right and wrong. He doesn’t mess around and has no interest in talking things out. His approach is to shoot first and ask questions never. And, while that lines up with how X-Force sometimes operates, it doesn’t help that he seems to be on the opposite end of this fight. Their methods line up, but their ideologies… maybe not as much.
