X-Force #12

Hey kids, guess what happens for all of three pages in the beginning of the book and has nothing to do with the rest of the story?

X-Force #12

Marvel Comics (July, 1992)

“Traitors To The Cause”
PLOT: Rob Liefeld
WRITER: Fabian Nicieza
PENCILER: Mark Pacella
INKER: Dan Panosian
COLORIST: John Bebollero
LETTERER: Chris Eliopoulos
EDITOR: Bob Harras

Apparently the plot is “everyone wants Cable dead”. SHIELD wants Cable dead. The Eternals want Cable dead so badly they took on a rogue member of their kind. (Rogue meaning a matter of opinion since one of the “good” guys beats the daylights out of former New Mutant Berto. Somebody wanted Cable so dead that in a previous issue he payed Domino to betray the whole team. In fact, X-Force is the only one that isn’t standing around or beating up their own teammates by laying a trap via faking their own deaths. Which is also only set-up!

That’s one of the big problems with this issue. It’s all set-up. A couple of people talk about why they want Cable dead and the rest is just “kill Cable kill Cable kill Cable”. To really show you how bad this comic is I’d have to review it Linkara-style. They you could also see how terrible the art is. Liefeld only plotted this one. Nicieza wrote this thing and it’s boring. The art is bad. I can’t find a single good thing to say about this comic.

Recommendation: Not the worst comic I’ve ever read but it’s still a 20+ pages of nothing. You’re better off avoiding this one.
