Vids I Dig 018: Comic Tropes: ‘Uncanny X-Force’ by Rick Remender is Near-Perfect

From Comic Tropes’ YouTube description: From 2010 through 2013, writer Rick Remender wrote a complete comic for Marvel called Uncanny X-Force. The concept was a “black ops” type team of X-Men that would proactively hunt down threats like Apocalypse. The book is relatively unique in that it had no interruptions for crossovers or guest stars. It tells a complete story – beginning, middle, and end – that changes every team member physically or emotionally. In my opinion, it’s nearly perfect. It features deep themes including nature vs. nurture, with the team facing variations of doppleganger versions of themselves. This review breaks down what Remender does well and what the book is about but is relatively spoiler free.
