I'm saying, Cable, we have to go back...to the future!



The X-related scans of the week, both featuring interplay of the present and the future.

First up, Part 2 of "Second Coming" in Uncanny X-Men #523 by Matt Fraction and Terry Dodson.

Cable and Hope have returned to the present. Cable's all-business, but Hope is distracted (as can be seen in the preview, where she's mesmerized by a huge amount of beauty products in a convenience store) by the paradise of consumer goods that is our era, since she grew up travelling through a series of increasingly desolate futurescapes.




Godamnit, do you know how much that stuff costs?

The next day:




The villains show up, of course, but luckily the X-Men alpha team (Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Psylocke, Angel, Colossus, X-23) does as well.



Next up, four from Wolverine: Weapon X #12, by Jason Aaron and Ron Garney, as Wolverine and New Cap take on the Deathloks.


The Deathloks have been sent back in time to kill a bunch of future important people, Terminator-style, trying to eliminate the anonymous "General" commanding the resistance. New Cap is the prime suspect, so they go after him, catching him at a Russian restaurant in New York (he occasionally is overcome with the need to have some shchi. He dodges their guns, but is blown into a subway station.

Meanwhile, Wolverine has been contacted by Miranda, a waitress who keeps getting psychic flashes of future events (she's a badass commando in the future), and warns Logan about the Deathloks' mission.



Logan joins the fight in progress below. One the Deathloks grabs him:




Well that took an oddly philosophical turn.

This being one of her soldiers in the future. Flashforward. And then flashback:



And indeed they have, in the future. To be continued.
