Marvel Comics has announced plans for a new X-Force comic book series which will see Forge assemble a team of mutants to go on the missions the X-Men can’t. What’s Deadpool got to do with it, though?

In the world of the X-Men, there will always be a need for a team willing to cross the lines no others dare to…a group of mutants who call themselves X-Force.

This July, on the edge of the new “From the Ashes” era, the latest evolution of X-Force is born, specifically suited to a brash new age of mutant storytelling. We’ll discover their impossible mission in the new ongoing series written by acclaimed screenwriter Geoffrey Thorne and illustrated by Marcus To.

This time, this iconic comic book super squad will be built from the ground up by the mutant inventor, Forge. Accessing an omega-level degree of his unique and complex mutant power to build anything, Forge will bear witness to everything broken in the world. Luckily, he knows exactly who he’ll need to repair it: Rachel Summers, Betsy Braddock, Sage, Surge, and Tank.

To save nothing short of existence itself, they’ll jump sword, gun, and fist first into deadly uncertainty, and the only thing getting in their way will be the secrets they keep.

Here’s the official solicitation text for X-Force #1:

A NEW PATH FORGED! The world is fractured. Forge uses his powers to devise the only fix: an all-new, all-different X-FORCE! Forge leads a custom-made, handpicked team of mutants in off-the-books missions so dire, so integral to the fate of the Marvel Universe, there’s no time to stop for permission! Plus, as Forge detects increasing threats across the planet, he’ll recruit specialists for each target. It’s a revolving door of Marvel guest stars and first up: that regenerating degenerate, DEADPOOL!

“I cannot believe the reaction to my pitch with, ‘That sounds like X-Force to us,'” Thorne said in a press release. “It’s a new vibe and a different mission, but it’s still X-Force. Looking at all the books coming out under this banner, I’ll just paraphrase the prophet, Sheryl Crow, ‘All I wanna do is have some fun,’ and looking at what I’m getting to do and what the others are bringing, I’m absolutely not the only one.”

To adds, “When Marvel approached me to be the artist for X-Force, I was ecstatic. I was always a big fan of the X-books growing up, and to be a part of bringing that excitement to new and old readers alike was an opportunity I could not turn down. And the chance to draw Betsy Braddock again is icing on the cake!”
