Issues 1 & 2

Thumbs up.  Finally, Cable and Hope are back together.  I wasn't thrilled to see Dr Nemesis in the lineup but in the context of the story it makes sense that he's needed.  My favorite quote is from Cable in issue 1 when Forge gives him a new mechanical arm.  "That a joke? I asked you to make my arm work.  Not strap me to a howitzer.  This is the silliest thing I've ever worn.  Think we both know that's really saying something..."

The two part story focus' mainly on Hope and Domino with flashbacks to Cable building the team and setting up the larger spanning arc.  It's not the comic the Internet will be fawning over but I liked it.

7 out of 10 howitzer arms.

"If I could go back in time and like tell 11 year old me that like not only do you get to go to Comic Con but you go every year.  So much so that you get greeted by Stan Lee when you show up.  And 11 year old me would be like - How did we get so fat?" - Kevin Smith

Not sure why I never liked Cable as a character. Must have to do with the Liefeld connection. I will say that this title did seem intriguing. I will never get it due to my X-ban (If I am not getting PAD's X stuff, I am certainly not buying any other writer) but it did seem like something I would like. Keep us posted.
