Once the high chancellor of the organization, he’s now just an insignificant member of a larger government. He lost the only thing he desires: power… people can be dangerous when they don’t have what they want…

 Two figures stand at the edge of the universe and gaze upon all of creation. After an eternity, one finally breaks the silence and says to the other that it doesn't have to happen this way. He doesn't have to do it, that there is no need for all the bloodshed and for billions of innocent souls to die. All of this can be avoided if he just walks away. The other, in a calm voice says that he has no choice in the matter, it is his destiny to do what must be done. It is unavoidable. The first shakes his head, sighs and walks towards the ship waiting for him. He turns to look back at his friend, holding back a tiny smile and says, "I tried. But I will do what I must. Whatever happens next is upon your head, all of the blood I spill will be on your hands." With a sadness etched into his eyes, Adam Warlock looks towards The Magus and whispers, "I know."

And all that gas is anything but natural - it’s being pumped straight from Hell! What foul bargain brought this about? And can Doctor Strange exorcise the public utility when even the smallest flame, spark, or flicker of magic could level the buildings surrounding him? Whatever you do, don’t take a smoke break!

 The knowledge that mutants of all kinds are smuggling themselves into the Savage Land to live in a new X-gene friendly city is enough to convince Jean Grey to pay a visit to this burgeoning “Utopia.” Gathering Iceman, Angel, and Fantomex for a trip to the most dinosaur-filled locale in the Southern Hemisphere, Jean discovers a sprawling mutant community centered on a sanctuary once built by Charles Xavier and Magneto but long-since abandoned. This new city is governed by none other than Deputy Mayor Karl “Sauron” Lykos and the Mayor herself - Wanda Maximoff, the Scarlet Witch! Needless to say Jean doesn’t trust Sauron given that he is a powerful psychic AND a life energy vampire that turns into a monstrous pterodactyl-man when he feeds on mutants (you’d think one of those things would be a deal-breaker for Wanda’s administration). However, Jean’s plans to investigate the regime are put on hold by an attack from a group the city has officially labelled terrorists – the Savage Land Mutates! Can the X-Men work with Wanda and Sauron to save Utopia’s citizenry? And what happens when the X-Men find out WHY the Mutates are attacking?

They’re on a mission to bust up the remnants of Weapon X, the infamous mutant exploitation and experimentation organization, which is under the new management of Lady Deathstrike, the knife-fingered heir to the guy that invented the adamantium-bonding process! I owe Weapon X for my healthy complexion, so you don’t gotta ask me twice if I want to take them down!
 But Deadpool, you ask, isn’t Force Works still trying to rescue Plantman from Axeman Bone and the Zapatas? (Thanks for buying the Zero issue BTdubs). Well, my keen deductive reasoning leads me to believe the problems overlap. My first clue: Lady Deathstrike sucker-stabbed me in the face while we were fighting Axeman and the Zapatas, right before they all escaped together. Looks like Weapon X is back in the mutant kidnapping game. Can Force Works save the day before Axeman gets an upgrade? And what AOM universe villain cartel is Deathstrike trying to sell the enhancement process to? Buy the book and find out!

X-S.C.A.P.E. #1
 (X-Men/SHIELD Coalition Assistance Protection & Extraction Team)
 Written by GAIL SIMONE
 Plot by GLOBAL HONORED
 Art by MIKE DEL MUNDO
 "EVOLVE OR DIE"
•Mission objective: Extraction. Location: Afghanistan. Target: Soorya Qadir. Potential Combatants: O.S.I.R.I.S. (Anti-Mutant. Rigid religious fundamentalists. Extremely dangerous. Known terrorist activities.)
•Sitrep: A teenage mutant (Qadir) attempted to single-handedly take down a branch of the terrorist group O.S.I.R.I.S. that had set up a training camp near her home and publicly executed a known mutant three days ago. It seems she used her abilities (sand form transformation & control) to flay and suffocate a few OSIRIS soldiers before they captured her in a sealed air tight opium silo. They are afraid to confront her directly so the cowards are holding her family hostage and plan to make that silo her tomb, but we aren't going to let her or her family die out there. The kid has potential and those bad men have stirred up the wrong dust storm.
•Operatives: Agent Braddock (Betsy will be my top lieutenant and on top of her leadership qualities she has the ninja skills and telepathy we will need to get to our target and let her know we're on her side), Agent Moonstar (this girl's as dangerous with a bow and at hand to hand combat as any of my best protégés over the years, plus her mutant abilities are slowly returning which will make her the powerhouse we'll need moving forward), Agent Hudson (the kid is a young Wolverine without all the baggage), Agent Blaire (she is a hell of an athlete with a unique ability to convert sound into high intensity light beams, a freakin' human flash grenade. She's gonna be a star), and Agent Beaubier (He's our get in, get out guy. Super speed. Flight. Can manipulate light. Those OSIRIS goons won't even know they've been hit until it is too late. He's that damn good.)
•Your orders are to infiltrate the confirmed location, get the girl, free her family, and get out. We are bringing them with us. If you can take down the camp while you're there, well that'll be your secondary objective but OSIRIS isn't our war. Not today. Getting this girl back safe is. Best of luck X-S.C.A.P.E. Go out there and give 'em hell!
