M-Branch and Project: X-Force

Post by RingOtaku » 28 Jan 2019, 23:22

So reading through Cloak and Dagger's late 80s series as part of my Acts of Vengeance mega-read... after some foreshadowing we get in issue 8 a group of soldiers who were given powers by radiation due to a government group called M-Branch and the soldiers are nicknamed "Project: X-Force" this being a couple years before New Mutants was rebooted as X-Force. In the end of #8 some of the soldiers had been apparently cured of the radiation poisoning and took new code names (there old ones were the code names of the current X-Men team who was still believed dead). Were they ever shown anywhere again and if so did the team get renamed?

Not as much as I know of. The story came out in a time where writers teased additional storylines for later to pick up, but writers changed or series have been canceled earlier than the writers wanted.

Just look at Claremont’s X-Men run where he created sidestories for a century but never followed them up.

I was surprised to discover this myself, when I put together a Cloak & Dagger collection a few years back, but I never saw any follow up that I know about.

It seemed like an interesting idea for a team and the idea that they used the term X-Force a few years previously makes me kind of wish I could ask some editors if they recycled the name intentionally or it was a coincidence.
