Freedom Force (comics)

Freedom Force is the name of two teams within Marvel Comics' universe.

The original was a supervillain team, though they occasionally acted in a heroic capacity as well. It was a government-sponsored team originally composed mainly of Mystique's Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. They mostly interacted with the X-Men, X-Factor and New Mutants, but also repeatedly met the Avengers.

The second team was set up as Montana's Fifty State Initiative superteam.

Famous quotes containing the words freedom and/or force:

    Art is on the side of the oppressed. Think before you shudder at the simplistic dictum and its heretical definition of the freedom of art. For if art is freedom of the spirit, how can it exist within the oppressors?
    Nadine Gordimer (b. 1923)

    Men are not governed by justice, but by law or persuasion. When they refuse to be governed by law or persuasion, they have to be governed by force or fraud, or both.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
