In part two of unwrapping a big brick of X-Men, I tackle 2008’s X-Force revival as a Wolverine-led team of violent fixers, including how I went from a skeptic to a fan and how Messiah War shouldn’t be mentioned in the same breath as Messiah Complex and Second Coming. (Go even more in-depth on this run with my Most Wanted Omnibus post!)
Want to start from the beginning of this season of videos? Here’s the complete Season 1 playlist of Crushing Comics.
Episode 22 features X-Force, Vol. 1 & Vol. 2 by Kyle & Yost OHC (Amazon Vol. 1 / Amazon Vol. 2 / eBay) and X-Force/Cable: Messiah War (Amazon / eBay), but I also discuss X-Necrosha (Amazon / eBay) and X-Men: Second Coming (Amazon / eBay). Find the full collection details of all of those books in the Guide to X-Force.
