X-Force was created from the team known as the New Mutants by the half-cyborg mutant, known as Cable. After most of the New Mutants went their separate ways, Cable reorganized the team, which originally consisted of the Cannonball, Boom-Boom, Warpath, Shatterstar, Feral, and Domino (Later revealed to actually be the shapeshifter, Copycat). Where the other X-teams believed in protecting humans from evil mutants, X-Force adopted a proactive attitude towards mutant terrorists. Cable's basic philosophy, which he related to his team, was "Get them before they get you". X-Force was involved in attacks on mutant groups such as the Mutant Liberation Front and was itself branded early in its career as a group of terrorists.

Siryn and Spider-Man aided the team when Black Tom and the Juggernaut attempted to bomb the World Trade Center in New York and Siryn remained with the team.

When Cable's clone, Stryfe, made an assassination attempt on Professor Charles Xavier, he was in the guise of Cable. Assuming Cable was the assassin, X-Factor and the X-Men hunted X-Force. A fight ensued and X-Force was defeated. X-Force's members were taken prisoner and locked up in the X-Men's Danger Room for a time. They were later released after learning that they had no idea of the whereabouts of Cable and that they could help with the search for the Mutant Liberation Front.

X-Force continued its status as an outlaw band of mutants, dodging both their enemies and the government agents of Operation: Zero Tolerance.

Cable and X-ForceEdit

After returning from the future, Cable began hunting down members of the Avengers he believed posed a threat to Hope Summers. Racing against time, Cable tried desperately to assassinate the Avengers before the Techno-Organic Virus overtook his body. He was stopped by Cyclops and Hope, who was able to completely heal him with the Phoenix Force, but also put him into a healing coma. Cable was brought to Utopia to heal, but during the Phoenix Five's battle with the Avengers, he left unnoticed. He then sought out Forge in China to help him. He later recruited Doctor Nemesis, Domino and Colossus to reform his vigilante X-Force.
