As teased by Marvel last month when the publisher announced details for the new direction of X-Men, more new titles are on the way including an X-Force ongoing. Sure enough, today Marvel unveiled full details for a new X-Force book written by Geoffrey Thorne and drawn by Marcus To. The first issue will feature a cover drawn by Stephen Segovia.

X-Force ongoingOfficial press release below:

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!

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!

Thorned expressed his great enthusiasm for the project:

“I cannot believe the reaction to my pitch with, ‘That sounds like X-Force to us,’” Thorne shared. “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.”

Artist Marcus To added:

“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!”

Look for X-Force #1 to arrive in stores and digitally on Wednesday, July 31st.
