    Last time, Cable killed Cable. Today, Cable might kill Cable again.

Didn't happen. Mostly the same as premiere and yet it was entertaining enough. Waiting half a decade to wipe out the O5 adds to the excitement.

    Why is Teen Jean so sexy, bros?

To each his own. It was sweet with Cyke here.

    OOOF

Morbid and baffling change from Bobby's capture. He's ironically using Apoc's methods! BV-wings are THAT easy to remove? It's prob harder to remove Young Iceman's upgrades? Maybe he mindmushed him to remove his iceclones upgrade?

    It's not. The miniseries is meant to retire the O5, not to bring anyone back, specially not him. Maybe in Uncanny.
    And it's becoming obvious what's happening here: a threat in two fronts (Cable snatching the O5 and willing to kill if necessary) and Ahab with his Hounds relentlessly going after them too will eventually make it necessary for them to willingly surrender to Cable to prevent further attacks and consequences. All the current conflict will be solved by them saying "you guys must go."

Hmm...

    Yeah, meanwhile Cable is resetting them to factory settings so they can send them back smoothly. Though this'll also mean forcing Bobby back into the closet. I wonder how he'll get Angel's regular wings to grow back though.

    oh ok. how does our cable not know that his past self already did this stuff, or did he know, and just let his young self kill his old self? or is this a young cable, but from another seperate more different timeline?

Ahh, timetravel tales... A good bit was actually and pertinently footnoting that time Present Cyke disappeared when Past Cyke died for a minute.

    Cable's timeline isn't really a Point A -> Point B kinda deal. Consider this, the O5 being in the present only happened because of tampering with the timeline which shouldn't have necessarily happened. So a younger Cable from a different point in the timeline would have found out about the O5 being brought to the present while "our" Cable didn't know when he was that same age because it hadn't happened in the timelines he was jumping to.

    Cable is untethered to the timeline which is how he can jump around it all willy nilly.

    A page from Ewing's Ultimates says it better, but basically, the "past" and the "future" are fluid. The past changes (which we perceive as retcons or the sliding timescale) and any timeline has a bunch of "potential" futures that only get cemented as the timeline shifts forward from the "present" perspective. But then, because the past changes as well, the "present" present can change once it becomes the "past" present. There is no "set" timeline of events, so people like Cable or Kang who are essentially untethered from the flow of time can jump around. So this Young Cable came about because Cable at that age found out about the O5 while Cable at that age wouldn't have originally known about the O5 because they happened in a "potential future" which hadn't coalesced yet. The "present" we are in now was just one of many "potential" futures from Cable's perspective at the time, a future he might not have even been aware of.

    It's also why bringing Cable back to life is trivial because Cable from earlier in his timeline can just find out that he died at a certain point in a certain timeline and just... not go there. Bam, Cable is back.

Hmm... What's XMB think about this...

Yeah, that was a very effectively exciting image to end the ish. (Not a fan of unkillable Ahab either.)

Disagree, this example was a good call. Cautious and offered creatively contained quartet of adventures. Of course, it didn't go that way.

    So what this really is, is bendis damage control because his ideas suck.

Old news regarding O5.

    So what exactly is this OML's deal and how does one become a hound?

Ahab's control. My question is 'how' do Rachel's hound marks return simply in his presence?

    Marvel is in full Bendis damage control right now. The only stuff that's left from him is Jessica Jones (even though it's digital only) and his Guardians, and that last one is more because the stupid company refuses to let go of the synergized appeal.

    Prepare to see Tabitha a lot more. We're about to hit the era where writers grew up reading X-Force, meaning she's their waifu.

Will she have more say than "Brit" Betsy? ;\)

    Why did does this guy make Rachel job so pathetically?

Typical opening act of any Hollywood action movie. Plus, she was recently mentally compromised.

    That sounds hilarious. You think it will involve a lot of prayer and electroshock treatments?

    Well, Glob's there too, so I guess they'll invite anyone.

Heh. On one hand it was weird to see the gimmick gathering with recent Kitty meetings only including senior staff to confab for dire situations.

    Wasn't it Kitty's idea to plant the mansion in the middle of Central Park? That is just begging for huge civilian casualties.

Another bad call.

A few more thoughts/questions -

This dialogue from Cyclops was poignant: "...and now here we are in the future, where we should have already made a difference... and nothing's changed. We're still fighting...."

Adult Warren has regular bird wings again? I like it!

Kitty's plan was smart. So then Cyclops ruins it by running out into the rain by himself.

Cyclops shouldn't have had to run into the woods in order to get close enough to zap Young Cable. But I love how the artist depicts the optic blast as all hell breaking loose.

Has it really been the O5's choice to stay in the present day? I thought they were stranded here.

"Bodyslide by two" is one of my favorite things to read in a comic.

Jean wants to go with the old X-Force crew. Do you think she just likes them better? Or is it a strategic choice? I'm guessing she thinks they'll do a better job of predicting Young Nate's plan of attack.

I wonder if Young Cable can make Young Warren's bird wings grow back.

Does Young Hank have any chance at all against Hound Logan? I'm thinking he needs to run. But even that seems problematic since he'll have to carry Rachel. I think his best bet - if he can manage it - is to go upward. To climb. Wolvie can climb too but not as well as Hank, I don't think.
