PRELUDE TO “X-MEN: SECOND COMING” EVENT! The penultimate chapter in the X-Men saga that began with “Messiah CompleX” continues here! Now that Hope’s told Cable that she’s ready to join the X-Men in the present, Cable risks it all to repair his busted time machine. Finally, after years of being stuck in a one-way trip to oblivion, Cable and Hope leap into the past. But the Mutant Messiah and her surrogate father miss the mark by more than a few hundred years, finding themselves in a primitive Manhattan – and hunted by a mutant who just doesn’t know the meaning of the word “quit.”

  1. $20 the last words in this comic are ‘fate gave me one more chance to get it right…"

  2. I jumped on last month, so now it’s time to find out if I actually like this book or if my expectations were just so low that they had to be exceeded.

  3. You know this book gets crapped on by a lot people but I have consistently enjoyed, not loved, but enjoyed this book. I really like hope and have come to like her a lot as a character. And the grizzled protector role fits cabl well.

  4. It’s amazing that the plot from issue #1 is still the plot to issue #22.  What a waste of time.

  5. That’s a beautiful cover though.

  6. @cutty I agree it has been absurdly decompressed but I still have had fun reading it. And I think that was kind of the purpose of the book, dangle hope around so we remember her but to keep her out of the xbooks proper

  7. I enjoyed reading this too, I’m just also glad its coming to a close. 

  8. It took awhile, but after issue #21, I feel this series is finally moving. Sure, an arc or two have been nice distractions and we’ve seen Hope develop into a real character instead of a Macguffin, though this series has been feeling alittle stagnant until now. Will be getting.

  9. I think this series has been a complete failure, but at least Hope is going to step into the X-Universe this Spring with some backstory and development.

    I think the idea of the savior of mutantkind being raised and trained by Cable in the future is pretty cool.

  10. I’ve liked the series despite the art, but I think it’s time for it to end.

  11. I do agree feels like a good ending point

  12. While this might be just extremely average storytelling, I must say that as a new X-Men fan, I’m so glad I’m reading this before Second Coming starts.

  13. I’ve been enjoying Cable this whole time…. but man… this is getting old fast. Alas. 3/5 for me. Not much I can say, fun… but I’ll be glad to see it end soon. 

    @Noto A great covered ruined by too much shadowing on the final print! 

  14. @Prax I can’t agree with you more on the shadowing. Such a shame.

  15. I like this series not love it.  Every single month since like issue seven I have actually thought, "Is this the month Hope comes home?" I know its naive, what with no "events" named til now with "Second Coming", but it has been fun.  I can only give it a 3/5 for the single issue though, beause I too am glad the story is coming to a close. (what a rambling comment)

  16. This comic is getting insulting.  How many times does Bishop have his gun on Hope, but hesitates to pull the trigger?  It’s a 2 year effort in redundancy.  1/5

  17. @ Cutty Have you ever watched a few episodes of The Fugitive?

  18. -_- another filler? seriously? I’m getting sick of Bishop being such a wimp. Do it or don’t do it. I really wish they would stop making him like Hamlet. If the writers want him to really believe she’ll fuck things up in the future they’ll man up and make him pull the goddam trigger.

  19. @magnaman while I do agree I would like to break some new ground but in bishop’s defence he did pull the trigger last issue and hope’s powers manifested.
