    This is a brilliantly successful, pulse-pounding, psychologically apt book. It was the strongest release of the week

    X-Force #44 hammers home the awesomeness of Domino while setting up many key pieces for what is building towards an excellent finish.

    It was great to see X-Force get back to the basics but it felt like a fleeting issue in the grand scheme of things. I’m really ready for this Mikhail storyline to be over. Mikhail looking to use the mind-control powers on Orchis offers an interesting wrinkle for the larger Fall of X story, but it doesn’t feel like it’s entirely relevant to this series.

    X-Force is finally addressing the long-running subplot of the wolf in Krakoa's fold as they prepare to handle both Colossus and his brother Mikhail's Machiavellian manipulations. It provides a sense of how Russia plays into Orchis' global plans and what role X-Force serves in the wake of their sponsor country's collapse. Yet in the wake of Hellfire Gala 2023, it can't help but seem that all of these revelations have arrived too late and that X-Force remains as only a clean up crew having failed in their primary mission. The team seems to exist primarily for their to be a team titled X-Force and with middling action sequences to serve their ongoing quest for revenge, the central question of the series and one that remains unanswered in this issue is: What exactly is X-Force about now?

About the Author: Benjamin Percy

Benjamin Percy is an American author of novels and short stories, essayist, comic book writer, and screenwriter.


Benjamin Percy has published four novels, The Dark Net, The Dead Lands, Red Moon, and The Wilding, as well as two books of short fiction: Refresh, Refresh and The Language of Elk. In 2016, he published his first book of non-fiction, a collection of essays on writing and genre fiction: Thrill Me.

Percy’s first work for DC Comics was writing Detective Comics #35 – 36 in 2014, which was part of the company’s New 52 branding. He eventually took over as writer on the company’s Green Arrow series, beginning with issue 41, and continuing until issue 52, when that series was cancelled in preparation for DC’s 2016 DC Rebirth initiative, which involved restarting its monthly titles with new #1 issues. Percy would continue as writer on Green Arrow with its new series in 2016, beginning with the one-shot Green Arrow: Rebirth, which sold over 90,000 copies when it was released in May 2016. It was the highest-selling issue with Green Arrow as the main character in recent comics history, and received a second-printing. In comparison, the final issues of the previous Green Arrow series sold between 21,000 and 22,000 copies, the last Green Arrow #1, from the New 52 launch, sold 55,512 copies, and Kevin Smith‘s Green Arrow #1 from 2001 sold 85,046 copies.

From November 2019 Percy is the main writer of X-Force series and from February 2020 of Wolverine series for Marvel Comics.
