Back in 2001, Marvel Comics decided to do something a little different with their X-Force title, which up to that point had been very Nineties. So the main cast was apparently killed off in an explosion, and a year passed in-universe.

The X-Force name had been taken over by media mogul Spike Freeman, who built a multimedia franchise around a team of television-friendly mutants who performed high-profile missions on camera and lived like celebrities. The reality TV thing was still relatively fresh back then, and worth lampooning. We were introduced to this new, not precisely heroic X-Force...and then most of the characters were killed off in the first issue of the new direction, to be replaced by new people entirely.



7 1/3 pages of 21 from X-Force #120, "X-Force: Snikt!", which picks up after a fairly disastrous first mission for the new lineup. Possible trigger warning for implied attempted sexual assault.

The protagonists come pre-broken. )

Sorry guys, no Bat-rogue here. I just wanted to share one of my most favorite, lesser known Vertigo comics, that I took a look at off a whim and fell in love with and dreamt about.

Enigma, by Peter Milligan.

There is a lot I cannot in good faith spoil in this post, but mostly this works around how, when you don't grow up around the usual social constructs, you tend to see the world a lot differently.

This post would be about an unnamed man sees the world, because he pretty much.... grew up in a well in Arizona. And got godlike powers simply because nothing told him he couldn't have them.

I have a great great weakness for theological/mythological subversion.

God held me in the sky, and she dropped me into the world.  )

To complement [personal profile] glprime's excellent Amalgam Comics entries, here's possibly the strangest book they put out, in terms of out-there combinations:



Generation Hex was an amalgamation of mutant teen team Generation X with Jonah Hex and various other DC Wild West characters.
