In this Rick Remender interview, we initially asked about his legendary run on UNCANNY X-FORCE. Many consider UNCANNY X-FORCE a modern mutant classic. Therefore, what’s the secret behind the book’s captivating moral dilemmas? How did Rick Remender approach working with a set of characters that all share a dark side, or as Justin put it, a killer instinct? Since they are so dark, how did he manage to portray their humanity? Spoiler alert: He might not think about some characters he wrote as enthusiastically as one would assume!
