Cable #11, Wake Me Up When Something Happens [video]

90 Second Review for Cable #11.

I just don't get what's going on.  Or why more isn't.  It seems like big things should be happening.  Who's still reading this?  Does anyone think Bishop is just so out of character?  Why hasn't he been this...angry when he first came on the scene?

I don't mind the series.  Its supposed to be desolate and dull.  As for Bishop, I think he is reacting like that because he's seen one future timeline (his) and doesn't want it to happen.  Its building to Messiah War.

6 Dozen eggs

1 Tricycle? ...............sounds like a pretty awesome party.

I don't think the series is that bad but I do think it can be better. This past issue was pretty bad and the art didn't help it one bit. Hopefully it picks up with the Messiah War coming up

When Cable was "introduced" way back when, that's when X-Men jumped the shark.  I'd been reading and collecting X-Men, New Mutants, X-Factor, etc.  up until then.  At that point, with Cable, I thought "huh?"   I will be honest and say I haven't picked up an X-Men since that time.  The writing was done so poorly, so crappy, that I gave up on X-Men.   Looks like nothing has changed.

I liked this issue and thought the art was an improvement.

And Hope is seven years old now.

Really you liked the art? Olivetti's style is not really my cup of tea he makes Cable look old like Clint Eastwood in Gran Tarino but is was better then the middle of the book IMO

Yeah Hope is 7 now she said her full name is Hope Cable Summers
Posted by Slinger

Yeah, but Cable is old now isn't he? He's been on the run for 7 years, and he wasn't too young when he started out right?

Posted by Kurrent

Older yes but old I don't think so...maybe its the white hair.....LOL

OMG are you dudes kidding me??!! Areil Olivetti is like my fav artist. The only thing I hated about this comic was that he didnt draw the whole thing! Oh man, I cant believe my eyes when I read this stuff. This is like my fav series.... Although I agree nothing is really happening right now..... Its still way sweet....

I like Olivetti's art, just not for the whole comic book. Maybe just the covers.

It is pretty bad..

It's funny since on the cover she even has longer hair.  Maybe in the future, your hair stops growing.

Then again, you have to consider since she was a baby, people have been getting killed around her. That might make you grow up a little faster than you should.

I think it's just the posing, the largeness of her head in relation to her body makes her feel older.. along with the business woman haircut.

Psh. Math teachers.

When I said I thought the art was an improvement I meant the stuff Olivetti didn't do.

She doesnt have a mom. So of course she's gonna have a dude looking haircut....

Yeah, it's 4.18-ish years that Cable's been doing his narration.  There was a tiny bit of time before he took off in Messiah Complex so I don't know if that count refers strictly to her age or just the time he decided to start counting.

Edited by Slinger

I actually noticed the disparity in the days he had counted and the age that Hope said when I read it too. I assumed that Cable was counting days he's been on the run from the roach people and not Bishop.

And, I don't think her hair is that bad, but she does look a little older than 7, maybe 12-ish.

Posted by Paint

I'm a little confused. Is Hope the name of Cable's wife of the baby mutant? Because this panel got me confused.

Posted by G-Man

His future wife was Hope.  After she was killed, he named (finally) named the girl Hope as well.

The child and the woman share the same name.
