Uncanny X-Force #4

I've mentioned before that I was away from comics for quite a few years.  One of the things that I missed during that time was the New X-Men series from Grant Morrison and Igor Kordey and with it the introduction of Fantomex.  When the new X-Force (Vol. 3) was announced, I had to do some reading on him and his background.  Even after digging through several wiki's and issue recaps I was still a little confused as far as what exactly his powers were and what the hell E.V.A. was.  Well, we're four issues into Remender and Opena's Uncanny X-Force and Fantomex is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters.

I've seen some Fantomex detractors on a few forums but this issue alone should change any doubtful minds.  Remender had me thinking that Wolverine would have to step up at the end.  And then...  Bam!  It's Fantomex that comes through.  Outside of the disturbing scene with Deadpool and Archangel, the issue was great.  Depending on what Remender has planned for later, this issue could end up being a key issue.  Of all the X-books, I've given up on everything except for Uncanny X-Men, X-Force, and X-Factor, but this series is by far the best.
