Have not read UXF1 but I'm going all psychologist here and suggestion and a narcissistic element with the whole Fantomex issue.

Artist Adrian Alphona took the superhero scene by storm when he and writer Brian K. Vaughan created Runaways in 2003. Four 24 issues, Alphona's singularly youthful, highly expressive style endeared readers new and old to the brand new group of super-powered kids, giving Marvel a legitimate modern perennial with Runaways. And then... Alphona was gone. The artist popped up rarely in the comic book biz, drawing a cover here, a one-off single issue of something there, but it seemed that fans hoping for a new Alphona run of anything were out of luck.

That changes in May when Marvel releases Uncanny X-Force #5, beginning the first multi-issue comic book serial Adrian Alphona has drawn since leaving Runaways in 2007. The pairing of Alphona with Uncanny X-Force writer Sam Humphries is very fitting, as Humphries has always been something of a Runaways evangelist, praising the book from the rooftops of LA and loaning out copies to everyone who crossed his path over the years (including myself). Certainly, Humphries' new Uncanny X-Force run recalls some that angst-and-action magic from Runaways.

Alphona's hard at work on his first Uncanny X-Force issue, but we were able to take a look at some of his character studies and talk to Humphries about the new story.

ComicsAlliance: Sam, I know that you're a big Runaways fan from back in the day, and now Adrian Alphona is drawing your big book for Marvel NOW. How's it feel?

Sam Humphries: Runaways by Vaughan and Alphona is one of my favorite Marvel runs of the past 10+ years. I nicked a couple elements from it for Uncanny X-Force -- the marginal, outsider status of the team, the Los Angeles location, and I almost grabbed a character (who may show up down the line. Now we get Adrian, and I couldn't be more psyched. [Current Uncanny X-Force artist] Ron Garney is the co-father of mutant ninja noir and is difficult to follow, but Adrian is a great addition to our twisted little family.

CA: What is it you love so much about his work?

SH: Adrian's got great emotional range for his characters, and that's great for a book like Uncanny X-Force where there's a tendency for characters to be spiky and snarky. But Adrian's also got a fantastical side (if you've seen his gorgeous sketchbooks, you know). So I'm excited to flex that side of his artistic ability as well.

CA: What kind of story have you crafted to fit this auspicious occasion?

SH: Adrian's got a chunk of pages in issues #3 and #4, showing Psylocke on a crucial psychic mission, and his depiction of the mental plane is going to be killer. In issues #5 and #6, Adrian's going to take you on a wild ride into the future as we fill in just what the hell Bishop has been up to in the 68th century, what led him back to the present, and the reasons behind his brutal changes. It's the saga of cowboy Bishop, and it's going to change the way people have thought about him for the past five years. Adrian has got an ability to be versatile without sacrificing beauty, and we're gonna push that to the limit by giving him a ton of weird, alluring, mutant ninja noir stuff to draw.

Adrian Alphona will draw select pages of Uncanny X-Force #3 and #4. His first full issue, #5, goes on sale in May in finer comics shops and digitally from ComiXology.

That tells me that 1) Bishop's sticking around, and 2) Bishop's going to be coming out of his villainous reputation!

Man I hope I'm right.


So is Alphona a regular on the book now or just helping out for a story or two?

Sounds like he'll be on for at least an arc, don't know about after. Would love it if he and Garney become rotating artists for it though.

I haven't posted here before, But I absolutely loved Remender's X-force. It's easily in my top five books of the last ten years. I bought The new #1, but haven't read it yet. I'm hoping it can gives us a decent continuation of Betsy's story. She's my favorite X-men female and the main draw of the book for me.

I love Bishop. he was/is my favorite X-Man. He can be redeemed. It was irresponsible writers who ruined him for no good reason but to shoehorn in a one note character.

Cable is cool. If only they wouldn't have made him turn out to be baby nathan Summers all growed up..and then growed some more. How old is he, 120?

to be honest, I had no interest in Cable when he was originally created by Liefield as this militant future soldier. Making him Nathan Summers added alot to his backstory and made him more appealing. I think it was one of the better things done to his character and made complete sense. As for his age, I would say he was like late 50s pre-Messiah Complex, but after spending 17 years in the future with Hope, he's probably closer to early to mid 70s (Yikes!). I cant recall if he's been de-aged along the way bc he is old and shouldnt be moving the way he is without breaking a hip

Bishop was always one of my favorites as well. I honestly didn't mind that they had him go against Cable for the fate of Hope, I hate that they made him go nuts to do it. His shooting Xavier could have been explained away, as he was aiming at Cable and shot Xavier by accident. His wanting to kill the child was horrible but it was just the whole, "would you kill a baby Hitler to save all those who died horribly in WWII?" and I think that's fine. He's always had that edge and could be redemed from it.

It's when he went into the future and started killing EVERYONE to save everyone's life. That's when he just went ape-nuts villain. It was crazy and freaking stupid. Having him lose an arm and an eye to look more like Cable was just annoying and I hope they've found a way around that now.

Fix the character and move forward, Marvel. Please do not continue this rediculous plot. Blah!

Really hoping for him to be a Skrull...or Changeling again for convenience' sake. Or have him kidnap Elixir and force him to grow him a new arm and eye. Hell..he did it to Forge.

I really am trying too......but it just feels a little off. The new Uncany X-Force issues are pretty good though, I like the pace and story so far. Cable & XF just seems....slow.

Okay, finally there is a Cable & X-Force issue that I actually enjoyed reading. Issue #6 was well written and it had a couple of my favorite mutants...Kitty Pryde and Boom Boom. I liked how they fit into the story. And of course......Scott HAS to show up at the end.....
