So, that looks like Kid Cable -- Kable? -- on the team. Interesting that we don't see Sunspot or Rictor with the group.
Spoiler: show
I guess the Citizen X/Warlock situations are still ongoing?
Either way, cool. This is the kind of nostalgia I'm here for.

Kid Cable sticking around is interesting.

I still continue to hate those off-center logos, looks amateurish (the new Uncanny has the same problem).

Didn’t CBR spoiler a little bit to much? Kable is supposed to be a mystery up to this point and declared as an enemy.

Did they, though? In this, the X-Force want answers (and payback), but also we see him posing with the team. I'd say it's still plenty ambiguous.

Oh its fine...
Spoiler: show
Basically she was a host for the Poisons from another Universe, so she wasn't "our" Feral just one from a universe that was very similar...she died when the Poisons died. There were a number of Poison dopplegangers.

Marvel always spoil their own events nowadays by already give more then a glimpse of what comes after.

So we now know Kid Cable will survice eXtermination but will be on the run and probably be pardoned and join the team (for the greater good?)

Warpath will probably leave Astonishing then after the first run. And love that Boom Boom will be back center stage (in a group).

I really like that Marvel is going for the nostalgia 90's vibe with their relaunches of Uncanny and now X-force. Maybe we get a Generation X and X-factor as well. Though fingers crossed for the quality of the stories we will get.

The concern isn't spoilers for current issues, it is spoilers for future issues. It is very loosely a spoiler because covers are notoriously unreliable for the content. There are like 10,000 reasons why Kid Cable might be with the team. But it appears he turns from a heel to an ally; that could have been a surprising moment in the comics, but now is spoiled. Really the problem is it changes the way we read the next issues. It takes away some of the dramatic momentum the author has created. It is possible it is misdirection, but I don't think the marketing team is as clever as they are careless in trying to sell future stuff.

But the copy says they’re out for revenge...so I didnt read it as he’s certainly an ally, because like you say, it’s a cover or promo material and doesn’t correspond to what actually happens in the book but looks good since it’s a Cable flanked by X-Force.

Sunspot, Rictor and Siryn weren't original X-force members - they all joined later.

Feral looks to be the only missing original (ignoring the Copycat / Domino impersonation membership).

Didn't Siryn join in like issue 4? If Captain America is considered an original Avenger, I consider Siryn an original member of X-Force! ;)

She did join them when they fought Juggernaut in X-Force #3.
Unfortunately she is a joiner, not a founder.
The same happens with Magik, Magma, Warlock or Cypher, they all joined the team later on, no matter how iconic or important Magik, in example, has become surpassing any of the others.

The original Avengers were Giant Man, Wasp, Hulk, Thor and Iron Man BUT I agree with you, he joined in Avengers #4 and I feel confident enough to say before he joined they were not a team but a group of heroes assembled quite randomly, he made them a team and thats one of the reasons the Captain America is the most important Avenger ever, he enbodies the spirit of the team more than any other member.

Eh, I'm pretty sure they just gave him retroactive founder status because he's such an iconic member of the team. It's kind of the same way no one really thinks of the Hulk as an Avenger when he WAS an original member. When most of your history is tied to a franchise you're basically of them.
