Marvel Comics has released teaser artwork for the upcoming X-Force #1, which features a security alert for the mutant island nation of Krakoa.
The four-panel teaser by artist Joshua Cassara begins with an unidentified person running away from a screaming Black Tom Cassidy. Next is a closeup of a woman, possibly the mutant Sage, wearing glasses. She appears to be reading something from a computer screen.
The third panel features Marvel Girl (Jean Grey) also looking shocked, with the final panel putting Wolverine in action as he slips on his mask. Of course, the words, "Security Alert!" are displayed at the very top of the teaser.
Judging by the wording and the reaction of the characters, it's safe to assume the person running away has somehow broken into a secure area in Krakoa to steal something. And since X-Force is one-half intelligence branch, the other half special ops unit, you can be sure the X-Men will get to the bottom of the breach.
The solicitation and cover for November's X-Force #1 can be found below.

- X-Force is the CIA of the mutant world—one half intelligence branch, one half special ops. Beast, Jean Grey and Sage on one side, Wolverine, Kid Omega and Domino on the other. In a perfect world, there would be no need for an X-Force. We’re not there…yet.
