Second Coming is just around the corner. We've seen that image of Cyclops standing over a grave with the title, " One Will Die..." Many believe that it will be Cable that kicks the bucket. He's sacrificed so much for Hope throughout his series. Will the end of his series also mean the end of Cable?
Issue #24 is the conclusion to "Homecoming." This issue is supposed to give us the final showdown between Cable and Bishop. According to the solicit for the issue:
Sure, we've heard that type of stuff before but if you check the solicits further, you know there is no listing for Cable #25. Instead, the series reverts back to its previous title, "Deadpool & Cable." Here's the full solicit for issue #25:
No more hiding. No more plots. No more weapons. It’s coming down to mutant vs. mutant in the subterranean tunnels of New York, and only one of them will make it back to Westchester alive.
Is this the final nail in Cable's time-traveling coffin? There is still the question as to whether or not Hope will be a savior or the beginning of the end for mutants, as Bishop believes. Could the death of Cable be the incident that pushes her over the edge? Do you think Cable will truly die or will it just be a mutant/X-Men death (meaning he'll eventually 'get better' and return)?
“TWO MUTANTS AND A BABY” DOUBLE-SIZED FINAL ISSUE CO-STARRING DEADPOOL! You know, before that red-headed would-be messiah/destroyer of the world showed up, Cable had another partner. That’s right: Wade Wilson -- a.k.a. Deadpool! And while everybody’s excited about Cable bringing Hope back to the present to rejoin the X-Men, they’re forgetting the most important part of the story: The beginning, back when Cable first lifted the helpless baby out of her incubator up in Alaska. Wait -- You don’t think Cable did that alone, did you? You don’t think he managed to make his way across hundreds of miles, avoiding Predator X and Purifiers without a little assist, do you? Hell no. Cable asked for help from his favorite Merc with a Mouth and now, finally, this action-packed, oversized story can be told. Before there can be an end, there must be a beginning.
