X-Force #2 Starring Wolverine is a Tale of Two D***s [Spoilers]

X-Force kicked off its first issue with a shocking character death, one that would change the X-Men universe forever, which was a pretty bold move considering the X-Men Universe was already in the process of being changed forever thanks to the line-wide relaunch of HoXPoX and the Dawn of X. But X-Force #2 veers into more traditional territory with a classic detective story that would be right at home in a Batman comic, starring not one but two dicks: Kid Omega and Wolverine.

Spoilers below.

X-Force #2 Starring Wolverine is a Tale of Two Dicks... and a Resurrection Plan [Spoilers]

Following the death of Professor Xavier, Wolverine goes on the hunt to track down the people responsible. But another dick is already on the case: Quentin Quire, a.k.a. Kid Omega, who is happy for the opportunity to show how much smarter he is than ol' Stabby McClaws, because Quentin Quire is a dick here in more ways than one.

Of course, Kid Omega isn't the only one who's a dick in more than one sense. By rushing headstrong into his investigation without consulting Krakoan leadership, Wolverine, too, exposes his own dickish nature by his actions.

And X-Force #2's dick-themed subtext shows why this isn't your ordinary comic. A lot of thought was obviously put into the book's complex two-dick theme, an obvious reference to the longstanding theory that Bleeding Cool has recently cracked wide open: that Wolverine has two dicks, one for f**king and one for making love. There's no way that Benjamin Percy and Joshua Cassara aren't embracing the two-dick symbolism intentionally. The core concept behind this X-Force comic is a duality, as the team is both Krakoa's intelligence branch and special ops team. The comic is both a detective story about finding out who killed Professor Xavier, and a story of faith vs. science, as The Beast is tasked with bringing back online a copy of Cerebro so that mutantkind's leader can be resurrected by a second Cerebro.

We see here, two hands, desperately reaching, just like us, but not for answers, as we are… but for dicks.

X-Force is the CIA of the mutant world-one half intelligence branch, one half special ops. Beast, Jean Grey and Sage on one side, Wolverine, Kid Omega and Domino on the other. In a perfect world, there would be no need for an X-Force. We're not there…yet.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!

About News with Benefits

Why let facts get in the way of a good story? News with Benefits is just like the actual news, but more interesting because it's embellished. Yes, it may feature made-up quotes, wrong assertions, and completely baseless speculation, but in a way, isn't that more honest than the shameless buttkissing and corporate shillery you often find in the "real" news? Don't answer that.

News with Benefits was pioneered at toilet-themed comic book news and opinion website TheOuthousers.com, which is sadly now defunct, but its stench lives on thanks to the support of your clicks and outraged comments.
