COMICS: Marvel NOW! UNCANNY X-FORCE #1 Cover Reveals The Bizarre New Team Line-Up

Well, this is a little odd! Olivier Coipel's Uncanny X-Force #1 cover reveals the team line-up and all-new costumes for Storm, Puck, Spiral, Psylocke and a female version of Fantomex. Series villain Bishop is also included. Check it out!

Next January, Uncanny X-Force will be relaunched from the creative team of writer Sam Humphries (The Ultimates) and artist Ron Garney (Fantastic Four). Below is the first piece of artwork from the series; Olivier Coipel's cover for issue #1. As you can see, it reveals the full team line-up, as well as Bishop (who was last seen stranded in the future after he failed to kill Cable and Hope Summers). The characters all have new looks and redesigned costumes, although the female Fantomex is perhaps the most surprising change!

Storm part of X-Force...meh
OrganizedChaos - 10/10/2012, 11:31 AM
I guess the female Fantomex is EVA?
Dedpool - 10/10/2012, 11:33 AM
Bishop became a villain When he was attempting to kill Hope as a baby!
dezdigi - 10/10/2012, 11:34 AM
Wait, so what's the team with Colossus and Cable?
marcvader1 - 10/10/2012, 11:35 AM
Go Puck!!
PsyGuy - 10/10/2012, 11:38 AM
AHHH looks awesome!!! Strom FTW!
darkspark - 10/10/2012, 11:42 AM
Colossus is on Cable's X-Force which is a different team entirely. Wish they would have just given Cable's group a different name. Since they are outlaws or (pretend)Terrorists as the solicits go it should have been something like "Cable and the X-Tremists" or some such nonsense.

intresting line up,don't know if i approve but it is definetly intresting.

storm back with a mo-hawk.
scapegoatjones - 10/10/2012, 11:50 AM
I hope Puck gets laid.
jimoakley666 - 10/10/2012, 11:53 AM
Urgh. I'm sorry, but as gorgeous as that cover art is, this looks to be an extremely bland team line-up. I can't imagine a more boring prospect than reading about this lot. How can you go from Wolverine, Fantomex, Archangel and Deadpool to this lot? No thanks.
KaneVonDoom - 10/10/2012, 11:53 AM
This looks good. I really like the idea of exploring Spiral as a character in a team environment. And I love that look for Storm. It'll be interesting to see how she handles a team like X-Force.

lol @halloweenjack, Someone likes midget sex....
Theunderdog - 10/10/2012, 12:04 PM
This a great art I loved their new look they look awesome. I am happy we got chance to expose more of spiral as a character and I like to get know who the fantomex lady is?
fortycals - 10/10/2012, 12:07 PM
Probably so, but if thats the case where is the rest of her head?
BubblesShedAndBreakfast - 10/10/2012, 12:09 PM
That cover reminds me of the old Marc Silvestri X-Men comics.
fortycals - 10/10/2012, 12:12 PM
And why does she have hair.
plasticman - 10/10/2012, 12:13 PM
One A-level character...check
Three B-level characters...check
One mystery character...check
A villain that used to me a good guy...check
A loyal reader to buy this comic...not this time, pal
Lazenca - 10/10/2012, 12:16 PM
I......I don't have words to explain how that cover makes me feel. Wtf is with that line up? Puck? Really? And spiral? Female phantomex? I'm guessing that cable's x-force is the guys club while this is the girls club (if it makes sense). They will most likely butt head at some point in the future, like the ultimate avengers vs. The new ultimates.
kirynthemighty - 10/10/2012, 12:23 PM
Going from remender's uncanny x-force run to this??? holy s#&*. This lineup sucks balls. Only cool person on that team is Psylocke. There should be no Lady Fantomex...that just pisses me off. Storm on here....don't get it. As for the other two....did they just spin a freakin wheel and randomly get this crap. Jesus what a down-grade. Marvel has been doing alright with some of these teams, but this is just rediculous.

Hairy arm sex. ^
Hueyplata - 10/10/2012, 12:33 PM
Garbage. I miss Rick Remender already.
OtakuPapi - 10/10/2012, 12:36 PM
Puck looks bad ass...i didnt think i would but i actually like the look of this team
Dunejedi - 10/10/2012, 12:53 PM
@ Hope420 I was thinking the same thing, this is a very Silvestri looking cover. Now THOSE were some good years for the X-Men.

I have mixed feelings about this line-up. I love that Storm is leading a team again, and her return-of-the-badass look. I LOVE Spiral's inclusion, I think she's one of the most interesting and underutilized characters in the X-verse. I loved Fantomex and hate that they killed him (for now), so I'm on the fence about Lady Fantomex. If, as someone suggested, it's EVA taking up the mantle, I'd be cool with that. I even kinda like that they're turning Bishop into a bad guy.

I know Psylocke has a huge following, but she's slowly approaching Wolverine-levels of over saturation, for me. And while I always liked Puck in Alpha Flight, he just seems like a WTF selection here. And I don't like his costume. Or his little sausage fingers. I'll prolly check out a couple issues, but if they don't distance themselves from the "Wario and his X-Harem" vibe quick, I'ma bounce.
comicstocode - 10/10/2012, 12:58 PM
Little sausage fingers..
Scuzz - 10/10/2012, 1:04 PM
Storm's costume looks similar to Frenzy's costume post AOX.

Speaking of, does anyone know what happens to Frenzy in Marvel Now!?
MutantEquality - 10/10/2012, 2:26 PM
Eh. Can't believe Storms rocking the Mohawk again. I guess marital problems will do that. I just had a thought though. We had a whole damn story of bishop trying to kill hope and he is a villain which I understand but Wolverine does the same thing and he is STILL everywhere.
Always liked Bishop. Hope he gets a little retention. (see what I did there)

god this looks awful...

Olivier Coipel's art cover so cool. I already love the cast, I'm well aware of all of them and where they are. Defiently checking this out after remenders run. He's leaving the story open, so I'll see what sam does with his run.
dellamorte1872 - 10/10/2012, 4:36 PM
TEAM SUCKS! enough to not even bother following it in any context
PSYLOCKE been there done that tired to death of her "corny" character
STORM + a mohawk (thats cool at least i love that look for her)
SPIRAL (never a fan)
BISHOP (who is awesome)
LADY FANTOMAX/EVA (corny just let her be herself; EVA)
jasonicus - 10/10/2012, 4:39 PM
Female Fantomex? Screw this.
AlcoholicA - 10/10/2012, 5:10 PM
Sprial on there seems pretty badass

Replace one sword swinging teleporter with another i guess...
ThePowerCosmic - 10/10/2012, 5:11 PM
I thought the female Annihilus was supposed to be on this team too! What! There isn't one...we can change that.
dellamorte1872 - 10/10/2012, 5:19 PM
this book will get cancelled quicker than CABLE's i guarantee it whoever made this business deal should be fired
dellamorte1872 - 10/10/2012, 5:23 PM
o shit! that one dude is PUCK! this book gained a tad bit of coolness but 3 good characters (BISHOP, STORM, + PUCK) a team roster does not make especially with this weak line-up
dellamorte1872 - 10/10/2012, 5:29 PM
give me....BISHOP, MOHAWKED STORM, PUCK, GAMBIT, WARBIRD, and HEPZIBAH (the cat alien chick they brought back from the STARJAMMERS) shit POLARIS would be cool too by me
dellamorte1872 - 10/10/2012, 5:31 PM
if the cat chick's dead why not POLARIS? HAVOK is getting alot of play over in UA i believe
dellamorte1872 - 10/10/2012, 5:36 PM
eventually bring in QUICKSILVER (have a covert subplot where P+Q are conspiring on them from the inside for....MAGNETO) that is also written and copyrighted by me as well legally find out
