Nothing about this issue makes sense. As you can tell from the cover, this is the first appearance of X-Force. In a Cloak and Dagger book.
And their existence is explained as the government no longer trusting Mystique’s mutant-comprised “Freedom Force” because of their behavior during Acts of Vengeance, so the government formed a SECOND group of mutants who are named member of the X-Men—who themselves are complete outlaws and fugitives.
By the end of the issue, these new “heroes” have been revealed as villains (surprise!) and they’re gone.
Creators: Terry Austin, Mike Vosburg
Grade: F. A cover that promises a new team, but instead gives us a lifeless copy in a one-time appearance.
