    ok so now bishop has a bionic eye? who implanted it, and how does this work?

Bishop probably put it in himself. I think he did the same with his bionic arm, but I can't be sure, since I only bought maybe the first one or two issues of Cable's current book before I gave up in disgust.

    i've never been much of a bishop fan, but i swear marvel has never assassinated a character faster and more irreparably than they've done here. they might have made "bigger" errors by messing with more important characters (one more day comes to mind), but all things being equal has marvel ever done anything so pointlessly stupid with a character?

Three words: One More Day. Spider-Man may not have undergone the level of ruthlessly methodical character destruction that Bishop has, but he has damn sure been similarly irreparably damaged by that literal deal with the devil. Plus he's apparently now back in the status quo of 1982, with no explanation other than "It's magic, we don't need to explain it."

Admittedly Peter hasn't been turned into a one-dimensional psychopathic version of Dick Dastardly, but he's still not Spider-Man anymore \:\(

    maybe i'm beating a dead horse here, but does anyone think there's something redeeming about the direction they've taken with bishop?

Um... he got a cool bionic eye?

    i know we're not supposed to bash creators here, but what about editors? is there a nice way to ask who thought this was a good idea on any level??

Probably, but I can't think of one that doesn't involve multiple expletives and a voodoo death ritual.

    i love you guys. happy new year.

And to you \:\)
