X-Force is the name adopted by various different groups of mutant superheroes featuring in a series of the same name. The first series was created by Rob Liefeld in 1991. It featured a team more militant than its X-Men counterparts. In #116 (2001), the team was replaced by another team of mutant media celebrities. The title was cancelled with #129 (2002) and replaced with a new series X-Statix. In 2004, a six-issue X-Force miniseries was released, with Liefeld as plotter and illustrator and Fabian Nicieza providing dialogue. The series reunited many members of the original team. The series was followed by a four-issue prequel X-Force: Shatterstar mini-series. In 2008, the third series was launched, written by the team of Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost. Cyclops formed the team as a black ops unit to deal with threats using lethal force. The team disbanded with #28 (2010) following the Second Coming crossover. A three issue mini-series X-Force: Sex and Violence was released. A new title Uncanny X-Force was launched in 2011, written by Rick Remender. The title ended in 2012. In its place, a new Uncanny X-Force vol. 2 and a new title Cable and X-Force were released.
