Preview: Uncanny X-Force #7

Wolverine, Deadpool, Psylocke, Archangel, Fantomex and now Deathlok.  The black-ops X-squad has their hands full with the Deathlok nation in Uncanny X-Force #7.

What do you get when you combine super soldiers with the Deathlok virus?  You get a nightmare for the covert squad of mutants (and one pseudo-mutant) that's taken on the name of X-Force, despite its origins as a team of wayward teens being wrangled by Cable.

It might seem like an odd team at first, but all of these folks have a past laden with torture and experimentation at the hands of nefarious jerks.  Three Weapon X escapees, an Apocalypse victim and a woman who had her brain transplanted into a ninja's body.  No wonder they've banded together to take care of the ugly jobs.  And they don't come any uglier than The Deathlok Nation.  Half zombie, half cyborg – a face not even a mother could love.

Now they're teasing a "Weapon Infinity" will be the only hope against a horde of infected superhumans out to murder Fantomex.  Who's THAT going to be?  And can someone explain to how a guy's external nervous system can also be an airship?

 

Here's a sneak peek at some of Esad Ribic's art from Uncanny X-Force #7, coming soon.
