There's one rule: Nobody can know.

"Ain't no man can fight against who he is forever."

Written by Rick Remender, in the aftermath of the Second Coming crossover, the X-Force title underwent another, albeit smaller, relaunch as the Uncanny X-Force. This time, the 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 previous team members Wolverine and Archangel (the only members retained from the last team), and new additions Fantomex, Psylocke and Deadpool. Later members include Deathlok, the Age of Apocalypse Nightcrawler, and EVA.

The series lasted for 35 issues (December, 2010-February, 2013). Some of its dangling plot threads carried over to Remender's next series, Uncanny Avengers

For the second volume of Uncanny X-Force, see X-Force (2013).


  • The Adjectival Superhero: Uncanny X-Force
  • An Arm and a Leg: Famine is at Wolverine's mercy and claims Wolverine said he wouldn't kill him. Wolverine agrees and hacks off both his arms instead.
  • And I Must Scream: Psylocke defeats the Shadow King by sealing him in a body previously occupied by the artificial mind of Omega White, from which he can’t escape, and has Captain Britain lock the body in Otherworld’s vault.
  • Anti-Hero: Nightcrawler only joins X-Force because he knows the team can help him locate his enemies, nothing more. He betrays the heroes in the final arc, as he frees Mystique in exchange for her leading him to the man who had killed his wife.
  • Ass Shove: The Age of Apocalypse Blob's default attack, to the disgust of all, involves sitting on his enemies, forcing them inside his anal cavity.
  • The Atoner: You can say it's Wade's primary motivation for joining X-Force.
    If he can lay down his life for someone he loves there's hope for all of us.
  • Battle in the Center of the Mind: All of Psylocke's telepathic battles against the Shadow King take place in the astral plane, where their consciousnesses can summon weapons and take on new forms.
  • Big Damn Heroes:
    • Deadpool cuts off "Father's" head moments before Fantomex is sliced into ribbons.
    • Fantomex brings the X-Men from the Age of Apocalypse into the fight with Archangel.
  • Bittersweet Ending: So, X-Force was able to save the world, a bunch of AoA X-Men, and Warren (well, a clone), as well as get Kid Apocalypse to fight for the good guys. However, all Archangel's followers have fled, there is a new heir to Apocalypse and a bunch of the AoA X-Men were killed, including Warren.
  • Body Horror: The Omegas fight by using their tentacles to pierce their enemies' bodies and inject them with a carcinogenic toxin, causing their bodies to sprout numerous tumours and swell up with fluids. Wolverine, whose Healing Factor starts to get overwhelmed, has no choice but to rip his own belly open to bleed the poison out.
  • Break the Cutie:
    • The new Brotherhood want to break down the innocent teenager Evan/Genesis so that he becomes evil. Back to being Apocalypse.
    • Psylocke, the team's most sympathetic member, is forced to kill her lover. Though his body comes back to life, he has no memories of her, which plunges her into depression. In the Otherworld arc, she loses her capacity to feel sadness, and although this seems to be a blessing at first, it comes with the side-effect of making her cold and bitter.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Deadpool loses his healing factor late in the series, which makes things a lot more dangerous for him. However, he is still a skilled mercenary and nearly manages to take out the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants and save Evan all by himself.
  • Brown Note: Famine is a former Civil War drummer. After his family was killed, his mutant power came out: he could induce Body Horror on whoever hears the percussive sounds he creates. While he mainly uses his old drum, it's not a necessity; he is held captive in EVA and escapes by drumming his fingers against a flat surface, incapacitating her.
  • Canon Immigrant: "The Dark Angel Saga" features Genocide, who's basically 616 Holocaust from the Original Age of Apocalypse story line.
  • Central Theme:
    • Is it ever right to murder, even when it would prevent further murder? At the start of the story, all of X-Force except Fantomex believes that the answer is "no", as they refuse to kill the resurrected Apocalypse. By the end, however, Wolverine comes to agree with Fantomex, as he murder his own son, Daken, after his future self warns him that the villain would massacre his students.
    • Determinism vs free will; nature vs nurture. It's the main conflict in Genesis' character arc, as he struggles between his desire to be a hero (a result of him being raised by Fantomex) and his legacy as Apocalypse's clone.
  • Clone Angst: Genesis is understandably shaken after finding out he is a clone of the evil mutant Apocalypse, as he is both terrified of becoming like his predecessor and shocked that his entire life up until that point had been nothing but an elaborate illusion designed to prevent him from finding out the truth. The depression causes him to sit down onthe floor and rock his body back and forth like a traumatized child.
  • Cool Ship: E.V.A., which doubles as Fantomex's external nervous system, is a sentient bio-organic flying saucer that the team uses for transportation.
  • Cursed with Awesome: Psylocke "sacrificed" her ability to feel sorrow to save Fantomex. She even points out she never would've had what it takes to save the multiverse without making the deal.
  • Darkest Hour:
    • It doesn't get grimmer than issue 16. The end of the world is nigh and Archangel is poised to wipe the earth clean and kill everyone on the planet. Deadpool lies in a puddle, Deathlok is mind-controlled, Betsy is being transformed into Death and Fantomex has promptly turned tail. It all falls to Logan, who's facing a high-powered alternate version of Iceman who's several hundred feet tall.
    • Issue 27 is pretty bad. Fantomex, dead. Gateway, dead. Ultimaton, out of control. Kid Apocalypse, captured. The newest Brotherhood of Evil Mutants (the Omega Clan, Mystique, Daken, Sabertooth, Weapon III/Skinless Man, Shadow King, and AoA Blob) is bent on exposing the Force and destroying them.
  • Deal with the Devil: The heroes have to resort to Dark Beast's help to save Warren. The villain immediately lampshades the riskiness of their deal as soon as they spring him from jail.
    Dark Beast: Shall we get down to the inevitable Faustian pact?
  • Death of a Child: When the heroes find Kid Apocalypse, they fight over whether they should kill the boy or try to convert him into a force of good. Though they ultimately decide to take the latter option, Fantomex refuses to go through with it and shoots the boy dead.
  • Designer Babies: Of a sort. The White Sky manufactures hitmen this way. This is where the Omega Clan come from, cloned from genetic matter of the original Omega Red.
  • The Determinator: Wade shrugs off his cancer and lack of healing factor in order to protect Evan.
  • Dirty Business: With our protagonists dealing lethal force some angst about it is to be expected. One example is the Otherworld arc, where Betsy saves the multiverse by killing her brother Jamie when Brian refuses to. She justifies it as necessary to save everyone, but condemns Brian for leaving her to do it for him so he could still consider himself good.
  • Doppelgänger Gets Same Sentiment: AoA Nightcrawler is rather annoyed that he keeps being compared to 616 Nightcrawler, as they have totally different personalities.
    AoA Nightcrawler: Do not call me elf. I find it... effeminate.
  • Dream Sequence: In issue #18 (February, 2012), Archangel is dying and Psylocke uses her telepathy to give him an elaborate dream. In it, the two are a married couple, raising two daughters in Colorado. They grow old together, and Warren dies of natural causes. All those decades in a few minutes.
  • Driven to Suicide: Psylocke, when confronted with a fascistic Bad Future that she rules over, attempts to commit seppuku in an attempt to prevent that future from happening.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: After the Dark Angel Saga, which results in Warren's death, there is a truly ludicrous amount of beer cans scattered around Wolverine.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: It's pretty obvious that the rest of the team views Deadpool as either a clown, or a psychotic mercenary who's only in it for the money. Deadpool even wonders why he's brought up as the pariah, when it was Fantomex who shot a kid, something nobody was comfortable with.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: The team manages to resurrect Fantomex, Wade actually gets to be called a hero and Psylocke and Jean-Philippe get a much needed vacation. It's not a happy ending for everyone though: Wolverine needed to kill Daken, or else he would have killed all the students at the Jean Grey Institute. There's also the matter of the evil Fantomex clone gone missing...
  • Expansion Pack Past: Really not surprising, given three members' involvement in Weapon Plus, but Fantomex gets hit with this in Otherworld. His incredibly unique sentient bullets were never given a proper explanation until he meets up with the man whose skin was used to make them, Weapon III. And guess what, he wants revenge.
  • Expendable Alternate Universe:
    • Deadpool makes it quite clear to Dark Beast that he doesn't give a shit about his "stupid fake world."
    • AoA Nightcrawler will cheerfully trade the future of the mainstream Marvel Universe for revenge against the man who killed his wife.
  • Face–Heel Turn:
    • A major story arc is called the Dark Angel Saga, and deals with said hero trying to reset the Earth after becoming Apocalypse's successor.
    • The Sinister AoA Iceman, convinced that there is no hope for his world and desperate to secure his own survival, betrays the X-Men and becomes one of Dark Angel's enforcers.
  • The Faceless: Fantomex wears his mask like it's part of him. Justified in that the psychic dampening plates protect him from harm. This later becomes very literal when Skinless Man cuts his face off.
  • Fighting from the Inside: Subverted. At one point, Wolverine manages to pin Archangel and is about to land the killing blow when Warren seemingly reverts to normal.
    Archangel: Do it, Logan! While I'm in control! KILL ME!
    Wolverine: Warren?
    (Archangel zaps Logan with a blast of energy, frying most of the flesh off his skeleton.)
    Archangel: I'm surprised you fell for that.
  • Fire-Forged Friends:
    • Deadpool and Fantomex go this route. Fantomex even later admits that Deadpool has grown on him.
      Fantomex: If there was ever a time to set aside my feelings about you and give a motivational speech, it would be now.
      Deadpool: Go on.
      Fantomex: No, well. It was just the thought that I should do it. I'm not capable of telling you that you're a tremendous fighter, and that we'll halt whatever mischief Worthington has devised.
      Deadpool: Too bad. Would have been a real sweet moment between us.
    • Wolverine is naturally hostile to the Age of Apocalypse's Sabretooth, but eventually comes to regard him as a good man, even giving him Ogun's sword and saying Ogun told him to give it to a man he met that was more honorable than him.
  • Foreshadowing:
    • Wolverine thinks Fantomex is quoting Hemingway in the first issue. In issue ten, Wolverine is seen reading The Old Man and the Sea.
    • When Archangel and Genesis are fighting in The World, three statues can be seen of various Weapon Plus subjects. Dr. Mindbubble, Skinless Man, and a woman whose name is obscured. Since Skinless Man is Weapon III, the other two are likely Weapons II and Weapon IV, though they could also be Weapons V, VI, VIII, or IX. Remender, in an interview, admitted to having plans for Dr. Mindbubble.
    • When Future Punisher is tempted to kill Deadpool, he asks Future Giant-Man just how important he is in the timeline. He responds with "Remember the zombie Nixon thing?", which refers to the first arc in Deadpool's Marvel NOW! relaunch.
    • Wolverine explains to AoA Nightcrawler=] that, in this reality, Sabretooth and Mystique are villains, confusing Nightcrawler as in his reality they are his dear friends and allies. At this stage, the main versions had not yet shown up in this series yet, but they are members of the team that poses the final threat of the series.
    • Omega Red's remains are used to create three individual foes, the Omega Clan, each with distinct but different aspects of the original. Later, the same machines are used to revive Fantomex...and creates three individual versions, again distinctly different but definitely parts of the whole.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: The Final Horsemen all come from inauspicious beginnings to pose major threats to the team.
  • Gentleman Thief: Fantomex. In the first issue, he races Wolverine to the British crown jewels simply for the thrill. Upon being beaten by Logan, he then agrees to pay him by giving him a case of the world's most expensive cognac. It was implied to be a bet between the two of them. Whoever got there first had to buy the other a case of alchohol
  • The Heart: Deadpool takes on this role after Fantomex killed Kid Apocalypse. He's also the only one to even consider the fact that using the life seed on Warren may kill him.
  • Hypocrite:
    • Fantomex points out how the Captain Britain Corps find the shooting of one kid "evil," regardless of the work he's done to raise Genesis as a savior. Yet, they're perfectly OK with skinning a man alive and erasing another from existence.
    • Deathlok. During Final Execution, he shows X-Force a possible future created by them, which involves killing people before they even have the opportunity to commit crimes. Wolverine refuses to stop killing, citing the need to kill the few in order to save the many. Seeing no way to convince them to give up killing peacefully, Deathlok hands over the controls to his human host, in order to kill X-Force to stop them from creating a fascist future. That's right, he tries to preemptively murder X-Force because they won't stop preemptively killing threats to prevent the future where they preemptively kill future threats. Deadpool calls him out on this too.
  • I Choose to Stay: Age of Apocalypse Nightcrawler stays in Earth-616 to ensure that Dark Beast gets what's coming to him.
  • Inner Monologue: Played for Laughs. Deadpool likes to pretend he is a hero from a corny adventure film while carrying on his missions. His thoughts, which are often nonsensical and filled with clichés, flood the panels as he tries to recontextualize the current events to conform with his idealized narrative.
  • It's Personal: Thanks to false memories, the Omega Clan feel this way, blaming X-Force for the deaths of their parents when no such event happened (and, being manufactured hitmen, never had parents).
  • Literally Shattered Lives: Deadpool is frozen by the Sinister Iceman and broken into pieces. After the battle, Deathlok gathers up every part so that he can heal.
  • Karma Houdini:
    • Dark Beast and Pestilence escape after the X-Force receive reinforcements from Earth-295. He reasons that, if their current scheme is bound to fail, he should at least take the opportunity to flee with the woman who is carrying Archangel's heir.
    • Mystique plays a major role in Fantomex's death, but is one of the few members of the Brotherhood who manages to survive. She manipulates Nightcrawler's love for his mother, ultimately convincing him to teleport her away before Evan can land the killing blow.
    • Sabretooth's plan to have Daken be killed by his own father is successful. Although Evan is tempted to murder him, a heartbroken Wolverine convinces the boy otherwise, allowing Sabretooth to gloat one last time before running away.
  • Mind Screw: The minor plot point regarding Fantomex's mother is deliberately made to confuse the reader due to some of its developments never being properly explained. When the old woman is first seen in New X-Men, she is heavily implied to be nothing but an illusion conjured up by Fantomex to convince Jean and Xavier of his fake backstory. In Uncanny X-Force, she is seen interacting with Fantomex while he is alone, although one line of dialogue has her suggest she is not real, but a mere result of Fantomex using his misdirection powers on himself. Later, she is apparently killed by the Deathlok army, but inexplicably shows up alive in the final issue. To add to the confusion, when Psylocke asks Fantomex if she is real, he replies "Maybe. Is anything? What do I know?"
  • Mirror Reveal: The Shadow King creates this illusion for Evan, where he looks into the mirror and sees the face of Apocalypse staring back at him.
  • Moment Killer: Sabretooth, a mutant with enhanced senses, is about to have sex with Mystique, but is disgusted when he realizes she smells like one of her previous lovers. He then has her eat a bloody slice of wagyu, which overrides the unpleasant scent and lets them resume.
  • Murder Water: Fantomex douses himself in a pool after escaping from the Blob's rectum, and right as he thinks they're in the clear, the water starts forming into Iceman's giant avatar and tries to kill him.
  • My Greatest Second Chance: Fantomex actually creates a clone of Kid Apocalypse to see if someone with his power could grow up to be a good person, rather than a dictator bent on cleansing the world of humanity.
  • Mythology Gag: One of the members of the Black Legion is Orange Hulk, who first appeared as a Palette Swap in Marvel vs. Capcom.
  • Never Be Hurt Again: Psylocke. She sacrificed her ability to feel sorrow in order to save Fantomex.
  • Not in This for Your Revolution: AoA Nightcrawler makes it clear that he's here purely for revenge against Dark Beast.
  • Not So Stoic: Fantomex tries to keep up appearances but occasionally falls into this. After being subjected to Blob's Ass Shove attack, he is riddled with disgust and desperately jumps into the nearest pool to clean himself.
  • Off with His Head!: AoA Nightcrawler prefers to quickly end fights by teleporting behind his enemies in order to decapitate them. He does it to Deadpool, noting how he did it to his universe's version of the same man, Dead Man Wade. Later, in a Danger Room session, he smugly postures that decapitation works on all villains, only to find himself being attacked by the disembodied head of Lady Deathstrike and the cybernetics within.
  • Offing the Offspring: Wolverine kills Daken by drowning him. Sabertooth then reveals that he manipulated Daken into causing the entire mess just to force Wolverine to kill his own son. Sabertooth knew this would hurt Wolverine worse than anything else Sabertooth could do to him.
  • Once More, with Clarity: In the middle of the Final Execution arc, we briefly skip ahead to the aftermath of the Final Battle, where a badly wounded Wolverine is kneeling on the ground while Evan, who seems to have embraced his heritage as Apocalypse, looms over him. A few issues later, we catch up to that scene to find Wolverine is distraught over killing his own son, and Evan is actually comforting him.
  • Our Minotaurs Are Different: War is a huge Minotaur wielding an axe, as per the standard. However, his appearance is simply his mutation. He was considered a freak in Ancient Rome before he became a gladiator.
  • Parking Garage: Archangel ambushes a man with incriminating information about X-Force here.
  • Pest Controller: Pestilence's power is to vomit up a swarm of insects.
  • Pungeon Master: Deadpool frequently entertains himself by telling himself jokes centered around word play.
    "Why did the nickel jump off the building but the dime didn't?" "Because the dime had more cents."
    "How do you kill a circus?" "Go for the juggler."
    "Why was the little shoe unhappy?" "Because his father was a loafer."
    "What kind of soldier doesn't need bullets?" "The kind that's always shooting his mouth off."
  • Put on a Bus: Angel, along with Deathlok, go along with Genesis to the Jean Grey School of Higher Learning. Deathlok returns briefly in the final arc to let the team know what the Brotherhood is up to, but does not join them on the mission, claiming he knows too much of future events to get involved.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Deadpool takes the time to give one to the future Punisher.
    "Look, for what it's worth, I always hated you. You are a boring, two-dimensional, self-serious relic from the 70s. Oh, and Chuck Bronson called. He wants everything he ever did back."
  • Recruiting the Criminal: To solve the Archangel problem, they need someone with intimate knowledge of Apocalypse's machinations, and Wolverine reluctantly decides to bring in Dark Beast.
  • Restart the World: The intent of the newly ascendant Archangel in the Dark Angel Saga, his group intends to raze the world using Willaim Rolfson AKA Genocide to burn the earth to the ground and then use the energies of the Celestial Life seed coupled with the Year Outside, Hour Inside nature of The World to create gardens on earth each exploding with possibilities' untold. Pity everyone will have to die for that to happen.
  • Robotic Psychopath: Inverted with Deathlok. The AI recognizes the value of human life, but when it's time for a bit of the old hyperviolence, he switches control of the body back to it's original human host.
    Fantomex: Our cyborg's gone all "Ted Bundy" on us.
  • Screaming at Squick: Once he is saved from the bowels of the Blob, the normally-unflappable Fantomex dives into a nearby pool of water while screaming "UNCLEEAAAAAAAN!"
  • Shoo Out the Clowns: In one of the chapters of Dark Angel Saga, Deadpool was fighting against the giant Sinister Iceman (the Age of Apocalypse version who betrayed his teammates by cowardly running away) when he was apparently frozen to death and he was absent throughout the arc until he got better in the epilogue.
  • Shout-Out:
    • Genesis is raised in a small, out in the sticks farm town, raised by "Ma and Pa"? Fantomex has been reading too much Superman. He even says he wanted to teach Genesis how to be "super."
    • The future depicted in Final Execution is similar to the film Minority Report, as both feature "thought-criminals" being preemptively arrested for crimes they intend to commit.
  • Someone Has to Do It: The crux of the series conflict comes from the fact that En Sabah Nur was actually occupying a needed position in the Celestial's designs for the earth. If someone doesn't step into the position the celestials might well destroy the world.
  • Spiteful Spit: Famine spits on Wolverine's burning body once he gets free of EVA's prison.
  • Split Personality: Fantomex has three different brains, likely a hold-over from his status as Weapon XIII. It's said this is why he could act as a hero, and then murder a child. Captain Britain, who hated his guts before, even said it was a testament to his character that he was able to function at all with his different personalities. They are described by Shadow King as noble, a trouble-maker, and a vile place. In the last issue, each brain gets a separate body. One identical to the old body, another with a mostly-black suit, described as not very nice, and a final, female body, with a white suit, who claims to be "the nicest."
  • Spotting the Thread: Fantomex at one point notices that Psylocke's eyes are flecked with gold. He quickly pulls a gun out and finds himself aiming at Mystique.
  • Stay in the Kitchen: Pestilence believes every relationship is based on a partner's subservience to the other, and tries to convince Psylocke to be a passive partner to Archangel. Psylocke is unimpressed.
  • Stepford Smiler:
    • Deadpool is a lunatic that keeps cracking jokes at inappropriate times, yet one of the story arcs has him breaking free from hypnosis after being told that he is loved, as this causes him to reflect that nobody has ever truly loved him.
    • It's implied Fantomex is very insecure, behind his bravado. When questioned by Wolverine why he would try to raise a young Apocalypse to defy his supposed nature and become a hero, specifically what he himself Fantomex would get out of it, he simply says he wants to see if there's any hope for himself.
  • Superhero Team Uniform: The team wears matching black and white outfits.
  • Tear Off Your Face: The Skinless Man does this to Fantomex and to his own ex-wife. The former gets better; the latter, not so much.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: This runs through most of the series. In the early days, Psylocke spends a lot of time sniping at Fantomex, and nobody likes Deadpool. Later, when Nightcrawler does not return to the Age of Apocalypse, he is very cold to the others.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: Wolverine is falling to catch a live bomb in the Iceman fight, and tries to say this exact line. He manages to get all but the last syllable out when the bomb blows up in his hands.
  • Those Two Guys: Deadpool and Fantomex are definitely the odd men out in the main roster. Neither technically count as mutants, and they rarely, if ever, appear in any big X-Events. Both of them had to be hired for the team, and they interact with each other on a fairly regular basis. In the context of the Uncanny X-Force series, however, they're just as important as everyone else.
  • Token Good Teammate: Psylocke is the most straight-forwardly heroic of the team compared to Pragmatic Hero Wolverine, lovable mercenary Deadpool, tormented Archangel, and shady Fantomex. The series likes to punish her for this.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Psylocke. She goes from not being able to kill Warren, despite his death being the only way to save the world, to forcing one of her brothers to kill her other brother to save the multiverse.
  • Two Girls to a Team: Psylocke and EVA for X-Force, and later Mystique and Omega Blue for the Brotherhood.
  • Villain: Exit, Stage Left: Considering this series is about a hit squad, a surprising number of bad guys get away clean:
    • Dark Beast and the Final Horsemen escape during the climax of the Dark Angel Saga and don't show up again.
    • Mystique is saved and taken away by the AoA Nightcrawler before Evan can kill her.
    • Sabretooth runs off laughing after getting exactly what he wanted.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Deadpool and Fantomex. Each has a very low opinion of the other until the end of Deathlok Nation, where Deadpool saves Fantomex's life at the last second. During Final Execution, Fantomex admits that Deadpool's grown on him. Later, Deadpool avenges Fantomex by stabbing Skinless Man through the throat.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: AoA Blob, unfortunately, never wears a shirt. This is meant to highlight his Gonk body.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Weapon Omega (Age of Apocalypse Wolverine) became the successor to Apocalypse and began oppressing baseline humans because the Celestials would've destroyed the entire planet if he hadn't.
  • Wham Shot:
    • At the end of The Apocalypse Solution, the heroes have decided to take Kid Apocalypse under their wings in order to rehabilitate the boy. Cue a panel of Fantomex standing over the child Apocalypse with a smoking gun.
    • At the end "Deathlok Nation'', Fantomex convinces the heroes to hastily leave the World, arguing that the mission has been accomplished and there is nothing else for them to do there. This is followed by a shot of Ultimaton guarding Fantomex's lab, and specifically a growing clone of En Sabah Nur, whom Fantomex had developed in secret and was the impetus for the current crisis.
  • Winged Humanoid: Archangel, the only member retained from the previous team (not counting team leader Wolverine), is a mutant who has a pair of angelic wings. His archangel form gives him blue skin and metal wings, which can fire feathers as projectiles.
  • Wolverine Claws:
    • The Trope Namer, Wolverine, is a member of the team. The retractable claws on his knuckles are coated in Adamantium, a fictional metal alloy that is nearly indestructible.
    • Deathlok sports some lightsaber variants.
  • Year Outside, Hour Inside: As established in previous series the World is this. Only now the possibilities are explored as millions of years are made to pass in less than a day. This is not a good thing.
