Cable #17

#1 Posted by bprimetimel (2 posts) - - Show Bio

Hmm...so did I miss something? I thought Hope landed 2 years in Cable's past and that he can't time travel backwards? So apparently, he can just stay in the same time for 2 years or something? How the hell did he and Hope end up in the same time period? 
 
Correct me if I am wrong, but shouldn't Hope always be 2 years in Cable's past?
 
I haven't read #18 yet, does it explain this bull***t?

I'll try to clarify. Hope landed in Cable's past. That means when he gets to the future, she is already there. She has been there for 2 years, waiting for him. She pops out of the time stream 2 years up river, at point A. Cable pops out at point B, 2 years later. Hope has to move from point A to point B in a linear fashion, since she has no time machine. Cable simply appears at point B, where their paths intersect once more. 
 
Hope: A---2 years pass---B
Cable: A---No time passes---B 
 
Hope this helps. If not, I'll try to rephrase.

Cable found Hope soon after he arrived at that point 2 years in the future.  Meanwhile, Hope has grown for 2 years without Cable in her life.  That's why when they were reunited, Cable was surprised by how much she'd grown, even though he'd lost her a few days/weeks ago.
