X-Force #7 solicits. In stores July 7th 2014.
ismoista asked: Hey, listen, ok, Simon, hear me out, I have a very important question for you, ok: Did you know you are the best?
a) Plz stop sending me abusive messages pertaining to the biblical apocalypse and my alleged role therein.
b) Your “a” key seems sticky.
thatsnottrueatall asked: X-Force is a weird title to me because my favorite characters are(in no order) Cable, Storm, Psylocke, Marrow and Spiral. Because they all were in the game Marvel Vs Capcom 2. The uncanny X-force was already pretty good to me but I didn't like the writing. I got pretty happy that you choose Marrow I liked Legacy and I'm liking your x-force. I was hoping to see Mojoverse but with the current direction I don't see it or Spiral being used. I searched but didn't find on why Marrow? And Good Luck
Thanks for the luck! I’ve waffled about my peculiar obsession with Marrow in a few places, but the first one that pops up on the Goog is THIS.
As for your not expecting to see certain elements being used:
“Actually, I think Marrow and Fantomex sort of alternate in filling that niche (on the grounds that dogs are wonderful insecure meat-robots fuelled by routine, certainty and love). Psylocke’s a cat, obviously. Cable’s a fucking great bald eagle. Doc Nemesis is an iguana. You know it’s true.” - Si Spurrier
REBLOG FOREVER BEST YES YES YES
stem-cell asked: So the end of Legacy made me cry. I think I cried that entire issue which hasn't happened since Nightcrawler was killed. But I kind of just wanted to say thanks for the good run with legacy! (Also you almost made me cry at thought bubble last year when you said something on a panel but I was a mike runner/red shirt and that would have sucked) BASICALLY, thanks for making me cry, really enjoying x-force.
Thanks so much - very kind words. And, um, sorry for making you cry.
jeffx20 asked: Any plans on bringing Deadpool into the series?
Nothing solid right now, but… I have ideas, and it’d be great fun to do. So: watch this space.
richardterrones asked: Should or could a human lead the x-men? And who could you see doing that in the marvel universe?
garret-spork asked: Hi Mr Spurrier, Just an X-Force related question. Seeing as Dr. Nemesis is still helping the team out with tech, is there any chance that Forge will make the odd appearance? I really enjoyed he and Nemesis interacting like a grumpy married couple in Cable & X-Force.
No plans in the immediate future, alas. I too enjoyed the Tech Vs Science buddy-movie shtick, but our plans are somewhat different. Afraid I can’t say much without spoiling things, but trust me when I say there are some very creepy secrets waiting to be revealed which I think you’ll enjoy.
jackraow21 asked: Is there a reason for Cable's new headgear in X-Force? He had gotten away from the eyepatch in the last series and had a really cool looking bionic eye. Does he still have that underneath the patch and just wears the headgear for some purpose that hasn't been revealed yet? Just curious. Loved the first issue of X-Force. Can't wait for more.
Everything’s there for a reason, Cable’s much-mocked Solid Snake vibe included. Answers are coming!
drhenrymccoymd asked: Is it weird when i read Fantomex's dialogue it sounds like Peter Seller's Inspector Clouseau?
Hahaha, no, not weird at all. (I read a great review of XF the other day: Spurrier writes a Frenchmam as only an Englishman can. Ha!) There’s a lot of exaggeration and swagger about Fantomex - he’s often annoying, no doubt about it - but it’s like that for a reason. Keep watching: answers are coming. And in the mean time, just remember: he’s not actually French.
