I'm saying, Cable, we have to go 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.

You've got me a bit curious, though. I did a search on "Robin DeSotos" and didn't find anything. Who's that?

i may have spelled her name wrong, but she is a character ona web comic... hilarious :)

hold one sec....

Ronin Moments

the whole series is worth scoping out (took me about a week or less to get up to date) the first Moment is a few days old i think, the other is a few weeks, you can start from the begining, but if you start at number two to the most current, its still pretty funny (the current arc has been hilarious) but yeah. let me know what you think :)

Ah, okay. Now I know who you mean but no, not her. Straighter hair, for one. And probably taller. And you know, living in the 17th century and all.

I've got a weird relationship with Wilkins' stuff, honestly. I was a big fan of Roomies, and always felt annoyed when he stopped that and did It's Walky, which I never could get myself to like. Which is probably why he fell off my radar until after Shortpacked had been going for a while, which is much better, although for some reason I still find myself unaccountably annoyed every now and again, so I can't really read it regularly.

I have to admit some of his Shortpacked stuff is a bit, eh, but I love the charcters, and stuff, never read his other stuff though
