Review: Cable #25

Posted by Zack Freeman (1 posts) - - Show Bio
Deadpool takes readers on a "behind the scenes" look at his secret role in the Messiah Complex storyline.
 
THE GOOD
I haven't read any of Swierczynski's work before, but I'll definitely look for his name after this, because this was probably the funniest superhero comic I've read in as long as I can remember. Deadpool's sense of humor is notoriously hard for writers to nail. Many try, few nail it. And Swierczynski nails it to the wall right here in a spotless storytelling dance with Paco Medina. I was laughing at Deadpool and pumping my fist for Cable's bad-assry in this, and it's hard enough to do just one of those things in a comic.
 
THE BAD
I can't believe this series is ending. This was my first issue reading it and it seems like it'll be the last in the series? If that's a case, it's a real shame, because I would have looked forward to reading next month's issue.
 
THE VERDICT
Out of all the comics I read this week, this was definitely the best. Pick it up if you want a belly laugh and rush of adrenaline from some well-executed action.
 
4/5

this was an oddball alright. pretty funny, but not too out there either.
odd series end for Cable though. i thought it would have given us a little more of
him, and maybe a back-up story.

This series has ended for a reason.   
One Will Die

Eh. It was alright.
 
And Cable's only reason for traveling to the past in now officially Hope? Not the Twelve? Not Apocalypse? Not forming X-Force?
 
Nah. That's a flimsy retcon.

I was just thinking that this issue did what Blackest Night did with their Tie-Ins...
After a long time of being canceled they brought one issue after and didn't start with number one, just continued from where it was left off.
 
That's what should be done when a series is starting over from the canceled series:
 

 Issue #136
 Issue #135
 Issue #133
 Issue #134

@mattydee007:
Actually it has been pointed out on another forum that there is a comic that takes place after the major X-Men death and Cable is crucial. Also in the Second Coing Prepare, Cable is in the second to last story, the X-Men has already died at that point.

I was a little confused about the Predator X, if Deadpool killed it then where'd the other one come from that fought the x-men?  
 
Still that's nitpicking, it was a very good issue. Good swansong for the cable series. I've been following it for a while and this is exactly what's been missing. A bit of fun!
