Uncanny X-Force: The Apocalypse Solution
Rick Remender has taken Marvel Comics by storm. He is a critical success. So far I have not been as impressed as others have been. His first work on X-Force is one of his better efforts. Remender does a solid job with the personalities of the various characters. I thought he did his best work with Psylocke. Her personality is dead on. The plot was inconsistent. At times he seemed to change direction for no reason. The main plot was a variation of the old "if you could go back in time and kill Hitler as a baby would you do it?". The plot twist at the end was handled very well. Remender is showing some promise but I am still not impressed.
The part that was very impressive the art of Jerome Opena. Opena stepped up his game and turned in the best work of his career. If you are a fan of great art, pick up this collection.
