According to Axel Alonso, Cable is the only thing that can save the future of mutant kind.
“Cable is a core thread of the second stage of the war that began in Messiah CompleX — a battle for nothing less than the future of mutantkind,” says X-Men Group Editor Axel Alonso. “At the heart of the story: two battle-tested men, driven by deep conviction and prepared to do anything to complete their objective — including calling on help from old friends. So make no mistake: The war over the future of mutantkind will be fought in the future — in the pages of Cable– and when it is finally over, who knows what will return to the present.”
Marvel has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek at the ongoing series, that has a baby strapped to Cable, right in the place most people are going to be aiming at. Good parenting there Cable.
