Marvel has released an early look at Deadpool & Cable: Split Second #1 by Fabian Nicieza and Reilly Brown.
Call them a duo with a special kind of dynamics. Call them an odd couple, but with guns. Call them the 1990s distilled down in to two characters. Call them what you will, but know this – DEADPOOL AND CABLE ARE BACK, BABY! The Marvel U’s most powerful pair is returning for an all-new series this fall in DEADPOOL & CABLE: SPLIT SECOND #1 – the newest Marvel Infinite Comic Series debuting in October!
Cable and his team have prevented the release of a terrible virus, saving humans, mutants and the future. Unfortunately, only they know the truth. The rest of the world thinks they are mutant terrorists. On the run from the government and the Avengers, they hide out in Mexico. Can Cable and X-Force clear their names before it is too late or, is there something more sinister over the horizon?
Cable and X-Force (not to be confused with Uncanny X-Force) have not been on the side of the angels. The last time Cable appeared in the Marvel Universe, he was trying to kill the Avengers. His X-Force is not much better. Most sided with Cyclops during Avengers vs. X-Men (A vs. X) crossover, including Colossus who was one of the Phoenix Five that tore up the world. With Cable’s time traveling knowledge, is he trying to stop a terrible future or creating one?
This December, the deadliest mutant team of all debuts in Cable And X-Force #1, beginning the all-new ongoing series from rising star creators Dennis Hopeless (Avengers Arena) and Salvador Larroca (Invincible Iron Man). As part of Marvel NOW!, Cable And X-Force joins a number of titles that will take the Marvel Universe in an exciting all-new direction, as the industry’s top creators join the top Super Heroes to deliver all-new ongoing series, great for new and lapsed readers alike!

Or – “At Least It Was On Time…” With the upcoming Avengers Vs. X-Men crossover, this four-issue limited was solicited as significant, a stepping stone towards the inevitable fighty-fighty. In truth, it’s both much more and quite a bit less than that…
Or – “Is This An X-Men Vs. Avengers Prelude? I’m Uncertain…” The return of Cable to the land of the living has been a tumultuous one, as his future world has crumbled, his daughter is in danger, and he is slowly being consumed by his own injuries… His vengeance will not be stopped, even if the people he’s getting back at have not yet done the things he’s punishing them for! Paradox much?
If you were still trying to figure out Marvel’s cryptic teaser image, you don’t have to burn anymore brain cells as it’s been announced that Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness are bringing Cable back in Cable Reborn. Marvel’s EIC Axel Alonso believes that Cable will be one of “breakout” Marvel characters of 2012, and Loeb is just happy to be back doing one of the characters that worked on when he first came to Marvel, back in the day (the early 1990s) when comics were still “on paper,” as he jokingly put it.
