    Default Uncanny X-Force starring....PUCK!

    I'm not kidding.

    From here: http://www.comicsalliance.com/2012/0...ies-on-taking/

    CA: You mentioned that you feel it's a book with a unique cast. Is it going to be the same group we've seen in Remender's run?

    SH: No, it's not. This is not any cast that I think anyone can say they've ever seen before. This is not a classic Wolverine, Rogue, Colossus line-up. It's definitely a new mix of characters thrown together in ways that they really have never encountered each other before.

    The group that we start off with right off the bat is Psylocke, Storm, Puck and Spiral, and we have a few more characters joining the group in the first few issues. In my mind, all those characters are wild cards. They're all strong personalities, they're all strong in terms of their powers, they've all got dark secrets and they've all got a rebellious streak. That to me is a really attractive part of the book, being able to balance all those character dynamics at once.

    CA: When I think of the most powerful X-Men characters, Puck is definitely one that always comes to mind.

    SH: [Laughs] Oh, you sweet talker. Don't lie to me. I think Puck is a character that deserves more love. He's like a Canadian Indiana Jones, he's an adventurer. He's also gone out and faced a lot of dark stuff out in the world, but he does it with this wry sense of humor. He's a guy that despite being short of stature, he always finds a way to kick somebody's ass. That kind of character who has a wit and determination is fun to write, and I think he's going to be a good mix with these other characters in the book who all tend to be super-serious all the time.

    I'm liking the way he talks about Puck (as the Canadian Indiana Jones), but "strong in terms of his powers"?

    I figure this will start with Marvel Now Uncanny X-Force #1? 'coz I'm gonna have to put it on my SO at my LCS ASAP.

    Oh wait Uncanny X-Force, nevermind then. I thought this was the Cable team.

    Awesome, I was worried it was that book as that looks bad.

    Here's another article about it, and this book is the "Killers" teaser from a while ago

    I was first worried as I thought it was the Cable X-Force book, but now knowing it's not Im actually excited for this

    Yeah, it's for a new Uncanny X-Force relaunching as part of Marvel NOW! As for the powers remark... I wonder if this guy's gonna use the Nicieza power-set? The one that obviously went away but no-one ever mentioned why?

    I read this this morning and now have the biggest grin on my face. THE BIGGEST GRIN!!

    Who would have thought, in a month of Sundays, that Puck would feature in an X book?? I am so stoked!

    As for Puck not being a mutant -- I think the idea for Marvel NOW is to mix things up a bit and to blur the distinction between the mutant/non-mutant books eg. mutants are now in two Avengers teams...

    YAY FOR UNCANNY X-FORCE! )))

    As for Puck not being a mutant
    As exciting as this news is, and potentially it is VERY exciting, I am tempering my enthusiasm a bit until i see how the series is written and how Puck is handled.

    I mean, who knows? Maybe they will ret-con Puck into a mutant with the power to trap evil sorcerers inside of himself? You never know...





    “This spins directly out of the events of Rick's run, but it takes the concept of X-Force, the mandate of the book and the characters down a new path with a new focus.”

    Here is hoping this means we won’t see Puck wrestling with whether or not to kill a bad guy; in my mind, that option is not one Puck would ever debate, he is not a killer. Of course, the huge "KILLERS" banner gives me much pause; I am hoping the team is just a fan of the band?


    “I was a huge X-Men fan growing up, a huge Claremont and Simonson era fan”

    This sounds promising. Two good writers to be fans of. And with being a Claremont fan, he should be familiar with the origins of Alpha Flight, so maybe we’ll see them show up on occasion in this book?


    “The group that we start off with right off the bat is Psylocke, Storm, Puck and Spiral, and we have a few more characters joining the group in the first few issues.”

    The best part about Spiral, is that she is a teleporter, meaning we might see Spiral dropping by AF HQ to pick up Puck for a mission?

    I think it will be fine, I read the article after my Puck comment being not a mutant and Spiral isn't a mutant either and she is on the team. So it may be like Uncanny Avengers and joint between the X-Men and Avengers. Either way I'll be picking it up.

    Ah yes. i forgot that Spiral is from another dimension or some such thing. Seeing as how she has almost exclusively been an X-foe over her career (or so it feels), its easy to lose sight of her non-mutancy.

    I take that back. Although mainly a resident of Mojoverse, she was originally a human from Earth.

    As an aside, what I really see as encouraging is that in the 12 hours after the announcement, Sam Humphries was on Twitter replying to almost every single fan that tweeted him with questions/congratulations/comments.
    Including a potential interview with us, when the book's out.

    Axshally... and this goes all the way back to Byrne, I believe, he WAS a killer. He promised Mac he wouldn't kill again when he joined Alpha (don't know the exact reference off my head).

    So, him killing wouldn't be entirely OOC.

    Look, he's got soul, but he's not a soldier.
    He's got ham, but he's not a hamster.

    *Sigh* They always say that. Every single new writer who's written an Alpha book has claimed to be a fan of Byrne's run.
    I stopped listening after v3.

    Not saying this UXF won't be good - but I am saying that statement means exactly nothing.

    So...as an existential question, what is nothing, exactly?

    It is what I got in answer to that question.
