X-Force is a highly mobilized strike force composed of former students of Professor Charles Xavier. The team was composed to handle some of the messy work that the X-Men could not. X-Force is a rapid response team that deals directly with crisis situations. There is some speculation that Fox Studios may be expanding its X-Men franchise by creating the X-Force.
