Customer Reviews

The creation of Apocalypses new horsemen in particular is well done.
Matthew Simmons
The art is gritty and dark to match the tone of the series, the writing is wonderful and humorous when it needs to be, and the story is a winner.
J.S. Lewis
First I have to say that it's been a long time since I have read any X-Men comic books.

Format: Paperback
Rick Remender and newcomer Jerome Opena have delivered a perfect first volume. This paperback collects the first four issues of the Uncanny X-Force ongoing series. Remender has assembled the perfect mutant covert kill team.
Wolverine; Designed by the clandestine Weapon Plus program to be the killer. Psylocke; Telekinetic, telapathic ninja. Archangel; Augmented by mutant tyrant Apocalypse to be Death incarnate. Fantomex; Also created by the Weapon Plus program. Supposed to be an improvement over Wolverine. Deapool; Merc with a Mouth.
These five mutants have one job. To prevent the rise of Apocalypse. The art in this series is breath-taking. Opena's style is refreshing, and the coloring is excellent. The dialogue is great. We see this fledgling team truly form a bond in this volume. Apocalypse's new four horseman are truly interesting. We'll see them battle from the desert mountains to the moon. There are twists and developments in this book that surprised me. I did not see them coming.
This a dark book. The whole plot of this arc is to assassinate a child. This is not recommended for children. Check this out. You won't regret it.

Format: Hardcover
This story picks of just after the amazing X-Men: Second Coming story. This new X-force team comes together at the end of that story, and has many similarities to the previous X-force team (written by Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost). They are similar in that both teams are lead by Wolverine, have slick black and grey costumes and are unknown to the world. However, while the previous X-Force was all Cyclops idea, this new X-Force is unknown to exist even to him.

This story has plenty of things to love: Deadpool is finally a member of an X-team, and frankly, fits like a glove to X-force. His character is spot on and has great chemistry with the rest of the team, especially Fantomex. Fantomex is also an amazing addition to this team, as he is mysterious and not very known, but extremely interesting. His attraction towards Psylocke is something that shows a lot of promise for an interesting triangle (Psylocke dating Archangel and all). And lets not forget Archangels inner strugle to not be consumed by his dark side, especially struggleing in this story dealing with Apocalypse. Psylocke is also en excellent addition to the team, providing a very usefull mental conection between the team on their missions (much like Martian Manhunter does for the JLA). Wolverine has his great moments as well and proves to be the natural leader of a bad ass team like this.

The Apocalypse Solution is a fantastic way to start out this series. It is probably my favorite Apocalypse story not called The Age of Apocalypse. The New Horsemen come out as credible threats and are probably the best Horsemen ive seen by Apocalypse's side.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Uncanny X-Force: The Apocalypse Solution collects issues #1-4 of Uncanny X-Force, a brief story from the single issue Wolverine: Road to Hell, and a six-page back-story summary originally published in All-New Wolverine Saga. Like all Marvel premiere edition hardbacks, production quality is high: medium-gloss paper, finished boards (in black with pink stamping), and a solid spine. Extras include a bunch of variant covers and four process pages for a single page of Uncanny X-Force #2.

Story-wise, The Apocalypse Solution offers up a compelling, largely self-contained story in which X-Force, aided by Fantomex, hunts down a resurrected Apocalypse and his new Horsemen. Like the previous X-Force series, Uncanny X-Force is one of Marvel's darker books, with gory fight scenes, a blurry moral code, and some mildly lewd language. Writer Rick Remender is at his strongest here when plotting fight scenes or supplying silly dialogue for Deadpool (a character who Remender handles quite well). He is less good, however, at fleshing out the relationships between the team members; Angel's relationship with Psylock, in particular, reads as little more than a plot device. As for the art, Leonardo Manco's inky pencils for the brief Road to Hell story are gorgeous. Jerome Opena's art for the main series is attractive as well, though it relies heavily on Dean White's (overly) monochromatic coloring for its dark mood.

Though not the meatiest X-Men book out there, The Apocalypse Solution would make a good purchase for X-Force fans and those X-Men readers looking for a darker story. Casual X-Men readers, however, would probably be better off skipping this book and picking up Warren Ellis' similarly dark but more imaginative Astonishing X-Men: Xenogenesis.

11 of 13 people found the following review helpful By GraphicNovelReporter.com on June 20, 2011
Format: Hardcover
X-Force is a black-ops squad led by Wolverine that operates in secret from the X-Men. Officially disbanded, the small band of killers tackles the dirty assignments that the main X-squadrons cannot handle. The X-Men do not kill; X-Force does, and quite willingly. It's that simple. Or at least it should be, until an age-old foe rears his ugly head once again.

Apocalypse, the first mutant, as old as civilization, has been reborn. A cult led by the Four Horsemen has resurrected their fallen leader, aiming to install mutantkind at their rightful place at the top of the food chain. When X-Force learns of Apocalypse's rebirth, they set out on a mission that's equal parts necessity and vengeance, traveling from secret caverns of Egypt to a hidden-base on the moon. Their plan is simple--kill Apocalypse and anything standing between them. Except their ancient foe is not quite how they remember--the demigod has been resurrected as a young boy.

Writer Rick Remender grabs the reins from Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost, previous X-Force scribes, to relaunch the series from square one and hits the ground running. The brilliance of the X-Force series is that it inherently makes sense given the altered landscape for Marvel's mutant heroes in the aftermath of House of M, which saw the vast majority of mutantkind wiped out. The landscape in which the various X-teams operate has been irrevocably altered in the wake of M-Day, and there has been a necessary shift in their perspective of a world that hates and fears them.
