Marvel Comics & X-Force: Killshot Anniversary Special #1 Spoilers & Review: Almost EVERY Rob Liefeld Creation For Marvel Returns For Extreme Action!

Marvel Comics and X-Force: Killshot Anniversary Special #1 Spoilers and Review follows.

Almost EVERY Rob Liefeld Creation For Marvel Returns For Extreme Action!

The book has several variant covers below in addition to main cover above; that includes 10 Liefeld variant covers.

Plus at least 5 more variant covers.

Here’s some of the Rob Liefeld pencils to his connecting variant covers.

The book opens with a creators credits page.

Before we begin below are some useful classic bios from several of the 1990s era debuting characters Rob Liefeld created for Marvel, excluding known quantities like Cable and Deadpool, who appear in this milestone issue celebrating the 30th anniversary of X-Force.

Stryfe.

Mutant Liberation Front (MLF).

Cable’s son Major X.

The issue opens on Cable’s orbital base and we learn of the threats that has required him to…

…pluck from the timestream 3 Cables, 3 Major X’s…

…3 Shatterstars, 3 Dominos…

…3 Deadpools, 1 Warpath, 1 Thing, 1 Venompool and…

…1 Cannonball…

…into a new X-Force…

…to take on Stryfe and his Mutant Liberation Front.

Major X villain Dreadpool also appears as he’s been supplying Stryfe with his future tech and…

…Dreadpool disappears just as quickly as he appeared.

We then have Stryfe and Cable go toe-to-toe again over the former’s doomsday device…

…which has Stryfe unmasked so readers can see he is literally a clone of Cable.

Major X enters the fray as…

…he may be able to stop Zero from activating the weapon…

…Dreadpool returns to stop X-Force from getting to Zero and “stealth” suited Venompool and Wolverine emerge to help out their allies.

The good guys stop the weapon from achieving its nefarious purpose and Zero escapes with Stryfe.

NEVER the end as Marvel would say despite the two words that end the last issue.

The Pulse:

Fun, action, time travel, and odd couplings. The stuff you expect from a Rob Liefeld joint. I found it to be entertaining escapism despite the difficulty of keeping tracking of the huge cast. 8 out of 10.
