Sex & Violence #1:
Domino, beaten to within inches of her life by the Assassins Guild seeks healing assistance, but Wolverine has a few questions to get answered first. Acting nobly, and protectively he takes Domino to meet the Guild, who subsequently attack them both. After a vicious battle in which is revealed Domino didn't know who she was initially hired for, and only found out too late after the discovery of multiple female hostages. Domino flips the table on the Guild and sells them out to The Hand, a band of ninjas.
Sex & Violence #2:
Ensues a battle w. Razorfist, the Guilds enforcer. He's sent w. a message to Belladonna, the Guild leader. This action pointedly leads the Guild to `call in favors'. Here we meet the primary, and quickly expiring, villains / Assassins: Boomerang (Atlantic City), Nakh (Chicago), Clay (Dallas - taken out by The Hand), Black Mamba (Miami), Bullet (NYC), Bushwhacker (Los Angeles - first victim, reveals the Guild's agenda... quite easily).
Sex & Violence #3:
Domino and Wolverine make a pitch to the Guild in a tete-a-tete: all the money (which Domino stole from the Guild) goes to charity and the Guild members get to live. It's a pretty bold proposition considering that X-Force is on Guild ground; outnumbered and mostly out-gunned (but hey, this is Wolverine and Domino fighting a group of nameless assassins... what'd you think would happen?). The rest of X-Force show up in the nick of time to assist Domino and Wolverine after The Hand essentially gives them up to the Guild. The close of the comic sees Wolverine in a new Mustang, compliments of Domino and the stolen money from the Guild... w. Razorfist stuck in the trunk.
Marvel Annual 2001: `The Man From Room X'.
This story revolves around Xorn, one who would have been a potential Gandhi if his circumstances had been better (e.g. better time to be born; better civilization to be born into), but instead he was imprisoned. Having just sold Xorn, Ao Jun - a mutant who's every living cell can replicate briefly - gradually reveals the true story of his punishment as the guard to Xorn. Also intricately wound into the story is the `3rd Species' - humans with a `mutant soul', the architect of the institution has been creating monstrosities in the name of science, and this the X-Men seek to stop. The story closes w. Xorn being offered a job with the X-Men.
Unfortunately the storyline does not match the art. The romance between Wolverine and Domino seems somewhat out of character with the regular X-Force series, and other X-Titles, the last time they hooked up was almost a decade ago in Grant Morrison's New X-Men. The plot is fairly mundane, Wolverine and Domino fight assassins, then ninjas, then assassins and ninjas. There is little to no character development, and leaving this story out of your X-Collection wouldn't break any continuity. The plotting and writing aren't bad, just not particularly good, not on parr with the regular X-Force series.
However Del'Otto's art makes the book more than worth buying, especially if you are a fan of his style, but even if not particularly enamoured with Del'Otto to see an entire mini-series fully painted is a treat for any comic fan.
Sex+Violence is a ***** storyline. It was only a 3-issue series however. As a whole I'd give the book a 4.5 because the extra comic storyline is a 2001 X-Men annual which really kind of sucked. If you're a Wolverine fan and want to see him hack into dozens of ninjas and commandos, buy it. If you think Domino is smokin' hot, buy it. Really, it's kind of hard not to buy it.
