Me gustó sin embargo que se haya explorado algo del lado de padres de Jean y Scott e incluso de Emma.

    This is a story of family, a complicated family, a story of young love, of returns and farewells, most of all, this is the story of Kid Cable, and it ends splendidly. I'm sad to see this title go, it was one of my favorite runs in the Dawn of X, and my favorite Phil Noto work so far, at least there's a one-shot coming up next.

    A baffling title. Writers never had a clear idea of what they wanted to do with "Kid Cable," and they couldn't even decide what personality to give him. The classic older Cable of the 90s was eminently competent. This guy? Writers couldn't decide if they wanted to try to make him "funny" by making him a sporadic idiot.

Writers never had a clear idea of what they wanted to do with "Kid Cable," and they couldn't even decide what personality to give him. The classic older Cable of the 90s was eminently competent. This guy? Writers couldn't decide if they wanted to try to make him "funny" by making him a sporadic idiot. This volume attempts to have a nice nod to continuity with the magical ritual from Inferno (back in the late 80s) that required the sacrifice of mutant babies. Of course, the ritual made a whole lot less sense without any demons or magic-users involved. Stryfe appears as the villain and he attempts to do the ritual, even though N'astir and S'ym aren't around to tell him what to do. When the Goblin Queen did all this, she was corrupted by demonic magic and became more of a magic-styled villain than anything else. The writers didn't seem to know too much about Cable and Stryfe's history. It was like someone read the highlights of their Wikipedia pages, and then got details wrong. Cable makes the odd statement of, "We don't know why Apocalypse cloned me." Sure we do. The baby Nathaniel Christopher Summers was sent to the future infected with the techno-organic virus, so Apocalypse cloned the infant so that he would have a backup. It was ultimately his plan that he would take over the Summers child's body after he had used up his own, and a child born from the combination of Summers and Grey DNA was supposed to be godlike. But, today's Marvel writers don't want those years of talking about combining Summers and Grey DNA to matter anymore. Marvel editorial is now bending over backwards to make Rachel and Cable characters of no particular importance. If writers want a character to be Phoenix, they're always going to choose Jean, or else the novelty of some unrelated character for a few issues. It's never going to be Rachel ever again, apparently. Writers didn't know what to make of Stryfe's personality either. So in one scene he makes a comedic aside, as if he were Deadpool. Because sure, this overwrought clone mastermind character with an elaborate metal headdress has always been so comedic up until this point. *Eyeroll* (view spoiler)[By the end, Cable and Stryfe's history is warped and retconned to look something more like an episode of Rick and Morty. Suddenly, we are hearing about Cable and Stryfe killing each other repeatedly, and their consciousness is always saved through some heretofore unknown clone farm. The writers rushed a scenario of two identical characters killing each other repeatedly across the time clone over the course of a few small panels. What the Hell? Where does this supposed clone farm come from? Who does all the actual lab work for Stryfe? If Cable has known about Stryfe his whole life, why was there a big dramatic reveal about Stryfe's real identity back in X-ecutioner's Song? How are they both time traveling so much? I'm just grateful to have the original Cable back by the end of this run, and we can lay this "Kid Cable" nonsense to rest. (hide spoiler)]

    With this Volume complete, I believe I have fully experienced "Reign of X" from "X of Swords" to "Hellfire Gala", the latter of which I will be picking up next. The main focus of this Volume is Cable finishing what he started right before XoS, the rescue of 10 babies kidnapped by the Order of X (human religious fanatics.... read the other titles for more info on them). After taking a small squad and rescuing 5 of the 10, Cable tries to get a line on where Stryfe is, knowing he is the real force With this Volume complete, I believe I have fully experienced "Reign of X" from "X of Swords" to "Hellfire Gala", the latter of which I will be picking up next. The main focus of this Volume is Cable finishing what he started right before XoS, the rescue of 10 babies kidnapped by the Order of X (human religious fanatics.... read the other titles for more info on them). After taking a small squad and rescuing 5 of the 10, Cable tries to get a line on where Stryfe is, knowing he is the real force behind the abductions. One small problem.... the only one who knows where Stryfe is, or can at least accurately track him, is the older version of Cable. After much discussion and trying as hard as they can to not confuse us readers, it is decided that 'old' Cable should be resurrected. It is almost comical how quickly he is able to track Stryfe, and the battle begins. Once the day is saved, the time has come for Cable to begin his journey to becoming 'old' Cable, so off through time he goes, as he always had. One change has been made.... in the new future, Esme is his bride, continuing from the grown love they've been working on since 'young' Cable's appearance back just before HoX/PoX. I really enjoyed this Volume. It would be confusing for many newer readers, but as a long time (almost 30 years now) reader of X-Men, I followed it well. Can't wait to move onto the Gala! Recommend.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I’m still formulating my thoughts, but I’m inclined to be more critical than positive. There’s a lot to love in this Cable run, but also a lot that feels unsatisfactory or undercooked. A core problem is how much time we spend with Stryfe, who isn’t a real character here, so his fate feels like a foregone conclusion. especially so when the characters don’t even deliberate over the fact of killing him, which feels like it raises a host of messy science-fiction-y ethical questions.

There’s just a feeling of narrative messiness that runs through the whole affair (though Noto draws the bulk of it beautifully). Duggan used to be in a stable of my favorite superhero writers, but over the past few years he seems to have lost (in fits and starts) the sense for grappling with emotional truths that he displayed in his runs on books like Deadpool or even early Marauders. I should qualify—some of my bitterness comes from being a Summers family die-hard, and so I’m a bit irked about how Rachel is largely shafted in this run, although she gets a few good lines here and there. Like I mentioned above, there’s still a lot to love about Duggan and Noto’s Cable, and I think I might revisit the run in full later on and reevaluate it. This series helped me appreciate this version of Nathan, and I’m truly sad to see him leave (for some value of that term, anyway).

    I'm either the exact right or exact wrong audience for this book but historically I don't like Cable stories. He sort of screams 1990s comics gritty excess to me most of the time but one of the things that's fun about the Krakoa era of X-Men is it's less of a dystopian hellscape for characters like Cable who have only ever known struggle mostly in post apocalyptic wastelands. This Cable is a relative kid to his much older, grizzled self. He can be funny, have a girlfriend, hang out a little.

    Cable returns from the tournament of swords with a big ol' sword on his back, and a mission to complete before his title comes to an end. This book unfortunately falls under the 'too little, too late' category. It wasted half its run on X Of Swords prelude stuff, so we get the actual plot in this volume instead. Cable tries to deal with his past and his future all at once with the reintroduction of Old Man Cable (Classic Cable? Diet Cable?) and Stryfe, and while it's a fun conclusion that manages Cable returns from the tournament of swords with a big ol' sword on his back, and a mission to complete before his title comes to an end.

Diet Cable?) and Stryfe, and while it's a fun conclusion that manages to have its cake and eat it too without killing people off for the sake of it like Kid Cable's original introduction, by the time we get to the point where everything's mildly compelling again, the book ends. At least it looks nice. I'm always baffled by how someone as good of an artist as Phil Noto can do so many consecutive issues in this world of crazy shipping schedules without sacrificing quality, and yet here he comes again to shut me up. Cable's latest ongoing spends too long spinning its wheels and then barrels head first into its final few issues where all the good stuff happens. It looks good doing it, but that's not really enough to save it.

    3.5 I've always kind of liked Cable, actually, even though he's kind of emblematic of the things that I don't like about 90's Liefeld style comics. I read a bunch of his turn of the millennium books, and kind of fell for this odd time-traveling, war-torn, hyper-complicated character. Sometimes he's a shaman and sometimes he's a soldier.

I read a bunch of his turn of the millennium books, and kind of fell for this odd time-traveling, war-torn, hyper-complicated character. Sometimes he's a shaman and sometimes he's a soldier. Mike Carey's X-Men enamored me to him further, as well as all of the Messiah-era books and Dennis Hopeless' X-Force. All of this is to say that I was genuinely sad when they replaced him, in a brutal fashion, with a teenage version as part of their pre-Hickman Spring Cleaning. I was confused by Kid Cable for a while, both because the X-books are, uh, not wanting for teenage characters, but also because it seemed to be a lateral move at best. This kid had the name but none of the pathos or history of the Cable we knew. I realize that this also means he was baggage-less, but what are the X-books if not the last bastion of pea-soup thick continuity and convoluted character inter-relations. From what we've seen of him in the Krakoan era, his main use was as a foil, a true "son" to Scott. Cyke being my favorite X-man, I could cotton to that, but he seemed a little generic at first. Reckless and powerful and rogueish, kind of like a Nice Quentin Quire. All of that said, Duggan's book hooked me on him right away. I had a blast with the first arc, thought that he had a pretty interesting turn in the otherwise rather messy X of Swords, and was excited to read the latter half of his mini, finally starting to accept him as CABLE. ...woops! SPOILERS TO FOLLOW While this second volume is just as well written scene-to-scene, Duggan is just really my speed, I guess, it gets a bit muddled on the landing. The big issue is...we switched back to Old Cable? I include the question mark in part because I'm not entirely sure. I'm several months behind on comics, but isn't Kid Cable a member of SWORD? Because this book sure seems to imply that he has left back into the timestream to fulfill his destiny while the whitehair Nate is sticking around? It's bittersweet, because I was earnestly pleased to see Cable (who Duggan has a clear affinity to, I just realized, after having him in his Uncanny Avengers run) but the How and the Why were not very clear. Are we already starting to unravel Hickman's mandates, now that he's stepping away from the books (an utter tragedy IMO) or was this just a reaction to the lukewarm handling of the character? In any case, I thought that this half of the story felt a little rushed and not quite as tight as the first bit, and while I hope we get good use out of older Cable (who...is he allowed to be around with his future knowledge?), I'm a bit sad that we lost Kid Cable just as we warming up to him. Or was that just me all along?

    Duggan’s Cable couldn’t be more bland. The art does him no favors as all the characters have the same blocky body type that I really never felt like fit the title. And it all kinda comes full circle, but it also felt all over the place. They put a sword in for the sword books, had a kidnapping and romance subplot, and then centered the title around Young Cable, but bring back Old Cable. Cable is not the worst title in the Yawn of X snoozefest, but it felt far from important and really had no mea Duggan’s Cable couldn’t be more bland.

    Huh. This was not what I was expecting, like at all. I guess they knew the series was ending so they sped up some bits to give others time to breathe. Overall, I think they made the right decisions, though I’m still a bit confused by some of the things at the end. Phil Noto’s art is gorgeous as usual.

    This has perhaps been my favorite X-book. I really enjoyed Kid Cable, and I was sorry to see the character leave and the series end. But I also appreciate it had a finite story to tell. So it ends on a high not, not petering out from fatigue. Combo of great story and art.
