Written by Rick Remender, in the aftermath of the ''Second Coming'' crossover, the ''ComicBook/XForce'' title underwent another, albeit smaller, relaunch as the ''[[TheAdjectivalSuperhero '''''[[TheAdjectivalSuperhero Uncanny]] X-Force'', continuing on X-Force'''''. This time, the work done team is not sanctioned by Cyclops and operates in secret to protect the interests of the still endangered mutant population, under the leadership of Wolverine.

This team's roster consists of

* OutOfCharacterMoment: Captain Britain. In a massive way. From wanting to wipe someone from existence to completely forgiving [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk his slave-trading older brother]] (though, granted, he could probably have pigeon-holed that under the idea of said older brother having previously been insane - which he genuinely was, an unsettling thing in a powerful RealityWarper - and then performed a HeelFaceTurn, as so many other X-People have over the years). Even still, you have to wonder if the writer knows the character is one of the good guys. He gets better afterwards, however, when he comforts Betsy and remarks that [[spoiler: Fantomex's feelings for her were real, having three brains was the root of how he could go from being a hero to shooting a child, and that with that mind, it was a testament to his character that he was even functional.]]
