* OutOfCharacterMoment: Captain Britain. In a massive way. From wanting to wipe someone from existence to completely forgiving his slave-trading older brother, you have to wonder if the writer knows the character is one of the good guys.



* UnpopularPopularCharacter:
** ComicBook/{{Deadpool}} is popular with the fans, but tolerated at best by the rest of the team and actively despised by Wolverine. Most egregious example: when Fantomex shocks the team [[spoiler: by killing kid!Apocalypse in cold blood]], ''Deadpool'' takes the brunt of the team's wrath [[spoiler: for openly questioning the killing]]. Leads to DudeWheresMyRespect. Deadpool does garner a little more respect from his teammates after they've been through a few life and death situations, especially Wolverine and Fantomex, oddly enough.

** [[RubberMan Harry Pizer]], also known as "the Skinless Man", was once a [[AmoralAttorney barrister]] who used his ability to stretch and contort his body to cheat and win cases. When contracted by the Weapon Plus program to fight the Russians during the Cold War, Pizer, designated Weapon III, [[PsychoForHire giddily]] used the opportunity to slaughter countless enemy troops, deeming it a righteous cause all the while before murdering his way into Otherworld to steal the powerful Orb. After being [[FlayingAlive skinned alive]] due to [[AntiHero Fantomex]]'s interference in his plans, Pizer only got worse as he assisted in orchestrating a bloody war against all of Otherworld, and later attempted to torture Fantomex and Psylocke to death in front of each other, starting by slicing Fantomex's face off. Eventually joining Daken's Brotherhood of Evil Mutants after murdering his ex-wife and her new husband, Pizer gleefully takes part in their plans to [[MindRape psychologically torture]] the young boy Evan into becoming the next ComicBook/{{Apocalypse}}, even tricking the boy into [[HopeSpot thinking his father figure Fantomex is alive only to reveal Pizer murdered him]]. When confronted by a vengeful Evan, Pizer offers him one final chance to revive Fantomex, only to swipe the offer away, simply laughing at the boy's gullibility. Pizer stands out even among the Brotherhood due to the fact that, while all the other members have alternative motives for trying to create a new Apocalypse, Pizer just wants the boy to kill millions of people as a final spiteful move towards Fantomex.

** Sabretooth. While this is hardly out of character for him, he sinks to new levels of [[EvilIsPetty despicable pettiness]] when he reveals [[spoiler:he started the entire Brotherhood scheme purely as an excuse to [[MagnificentBastard manipulate Wolverine into killing another of his own children, not caring about getting many of his comrades killed (not to mention all the emotional damage to X-Force themselves) in the slightest]].]]

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Deadpool singing Miami Sound Machine's "Conga," while being [[TooKinkyToTorture tortured]].
* HeartwarmingInHindsight: During Deadpool and Evan's talk, Deadpool comments that he'll probably never have kids hence why Evan is like a son or little brother to him. Not even a few years after this book Deadpool would learn that he actually has a daughter (Ellie Camancho).
** Even better, [[spoiler:Evan helps save her when she's thrown out a window after Deadpool called him for help]].
* HeartwarmingMoment:
** Nightcrawler asks Deadpool why he'd go on such a dangerous mission, especially since he lost his healing factor. His answer (well, second answer) was that he didn't want to let anyone down, because the X-Force is the closest thing he's ever had to a family. Remember, this is coming from the guy who's been mistreated pretty much his entire life, and has only ever had a handful of friends.
** Also Deadpool's heart-to-heart with Evan, in which he reassures him that he's a great kid and isn't anything like Apocalypse.
-->'''Evan''': At my lowest point you were the hero who showed up to save me.
-->'''Deadpool''': ...That... that's the first time anyone's ever called me that...
* MoralEventHorizon:
** Subverted with [[spoiler:Fantomex shooting Kid Apocalypse, as he eventually revives Evan. However the fact that Deadpool is the only member of the team to object to Evan's death certainly paints a dark picture of X-Force as a whole.]]
** [[spoiler: Sabretooth]] basically leaps across the horizon with glee. He manipulates things so that [[spoiler:Wolverine is forced to murder his own son just for the pleasure of making Logan feel like shit.]]
* OutOfCharacterMoment: Captain Britain. In a massive way. From wanting to wipe someone from existence to completely forgiving his slave-trading older brother, you have to wonder if the writer knows the character is one of the good guys.
* {{Squick}}: Absolutely everything about Blob-295.
* StoicWoobie: Fantomex.
* StrangledByTheRedString:
** Fantomex and [[spoiler: Psylocke]]. [[spoiler: Later turns out to be invoked. Fantomex knew Psylocke didn't really have feelings for him, but he had to make her question her devotion to Warren in order to acquire the courage needed to kill him.]]
** Future!Wolverine and Future!Psylocke are together. For... reasons?
* UnpopularPopularCharacter:
** ComicBook/{{Deadpool}} is popular with the fans, but tolerated at best by the rest of the team and actively despised by Wolverine. Most egregious example: when Fantomex shocks the team [[spoiler: by killing kid!Apocalypse in cold blood]], ''Deadpool'' takes the brunt of the team's wrath [[spoiler: for openly questioning the killing]]. Leads to DudeWheresMyRespect.
