    Or, X-Club is disbanded now that Dr. Nemesis is on X-Force and we'll be seeing little or no Jeffries or Dr. Kavita Rao... but I hope it's more X-Club of course.

    Those designs... When will the X-tream 90's end?!

    I'd just like to see Jeffries in a book where he's not treated like a tool or a joke. Come on people, this is your chance to have a ****ing Gundam pilot in a team book, essentially. One who can alter his robot with his mind, with nothing more than contact with a genius who has design ideas. There are SO MANY STORY POSSIBILITIES, hero or villain, and all would be epic, because HE'D BE A FREEKING GUNDAM PILOT!

    I'm confident that if Madison had the will and a reason, he could be a threat to the likes of Tony Stark! But they treat him like a plot device. The guy who just speeds up the production process for whatever the main characters in a story needs to further their agenda. Why?!

    I'd imagine the colours are a riff on Trainspotting and The Usual Suspects; the two posters the image is homage to.

    Ah. Homaging film posters has taken off as a recent trend in comics (not that it's new, just more common now - see the 2010 X-Men and their vampire movie posters). I kinda like it.

    I hadn't recognised this one, though. I know the Usual Suspects poster you mean, now that you point it out, but the only Trainspotting one I can remember is some guy screaming.

    Usual Suspects is especially appropriate, considering what the director went on to do.

    I can see the Usual Suspect homage, but I don't see the comparison between Trainspotting

    Oh, that poster. I have seen it, after all.

    (But, K-M, the Usual Suspects one has a ton more colours than the X-Force cover. It's got almost three, even in the age of orange and teal!)

    Hi Dennis, I just wondered what made you choose Forge for Cable & X-Force rather than Madison Jeffries who's been filling a similar sort of position with the X-Verse lately, has ties to Dr. Nemesis, and is also a combat veteran (and slightly mentally unhinged too)?


    Dennis Hopeless: Phil! The boring answer is that I like Forge and wanted to write him.
    Beyond that, I guess Forge and Cable seemed like a sci-fi Butch and Sundance. They both have these nutso checkered pasts and understand one another even when they can't agree. That pairing just made sense to me.
