Remender Confirms Exit from Uncanny X-Force, Secret Avengers

Though it’s been suspected since the announcement of Uncanny Avengers, Rick Remender confirmed today via Twitter that he’ll be leaving Uncanny X-Force and Secret Avengers. Remender’s final issue of X-Force will be the conclusion to Final Execution in issue #35 — which will also serve as the series finale.

As for Secret Avengers, he’ll be wrapping his run with issue #37, but seemed to give no indication that the series itself was ending. Presumably a new team will be revealed soon.

Remender tweeted:

Yes, unfortunately my time on UXF is coming to an end. It’s like a friend told me, "Know when to get off the stage."

Lots of the UXF story threads I set up are moving to Uncanny Avengers. And the people involved in the series moving forward are ACES.

Yes, my SECRET AVENGERS ends at issue 37. But we still have the best to come in the finales of SA and UXF. We’re going out loudly on both.

The writer also told CBR in an interview, "Hopefully, I’ll be able to stick a nice landing with Final Execution and people will really enjoy it, so the series will never have that part where it tapered and stopped being as good. That’s the upshot. You do your best work — and we all have — and then you wrap things up and walk away from it."

But hey, it’s nice knowing that a lot of the threads will be continuing on into Uncanny Avengers. Until then, strap in for the ride of your life on the road to Uncanny X-Force’s end.
