NYCC 2019 – New X-Force volume Announced with Benjamin Percy Writing
In NYCC 2019, Marvel Comics has announced a new volume of X-Force which features a mix of familiar X-Force characters together with new ones under the Dawn of X banner.
This roster features:
- Jean Grey
- Black Tom Cassidy
- Quentin Quire
Writer Benjamin Percy sees this book as:
It’s a procedural. Think about it like a Michael Mann sensibility. Think of Heat or something.
Here’s another additional thought about the new book:
People who were once enemies are now allies. The mutants are together on this team. Together on this island. And even though their sensibilities don’t always line up, they have the same goal. Of course, people are gonna run up against each other. When we talk about villains in the largest sense, who are the antagonists of this series? I can’t tell you that much, but let me give you a tease. Tease number one: something is going to happen at the end of X-Force #1 that will ripple across all the X-titles and leave you in pain and wonder. So just wait for that final page. Here’s another tease: even though there are these treaty nations who have signed up with the mutant nation, who have agreed to align themselves with Krakoa, there are still those within shadow agencies, within subsets of the government, who are opposed and who are gonna be working behind the scenes to undermine the mutants.
I wonder how much of Percy’s Wolverine will bleed into this book…

THE HIGH PRICE OF A NEW DAWN!
X-Force is the CIA of the mutant world-one half intelligence branch, one half special ops. Beast, Jean Grey and Sage on one side, Wolverine, Kid Omega and Domino on the other. In a perfect world, there would be no need for an X-Force. We’re not there…yet.
