During Marvel Comics' teaser blitz for a second round of Marvel NOW! titles, the publisher teased a series by Sam Humphries and Ron Garney related to the word "Killers." Today, Comics Alliance revealed the upcoming book as a relaunched version of the fan-favorite "Uncanny X-Force." With Rick Remender leaving the title after issue #35, Humphries is set to enact a new status quo for both the title and the team.
"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," Humphries told Comics Alliance. "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.
