Bad Futures

Four scans apiece from X-Force #27, Part 9 of "Second Coming", and Wolverine: Weapon X #13.

As "Second Coming" continues, Bastion has sealed San Francisco in a giant impenetrable sphere, and is preparing to flood the area with an army of Nimrod super-sentinels from the future that numbers at least 170,000+ (Domino:  "I'm not mathmetician, but that seems bad.").  The X-Men's senior officers debate what to do next:

Meanwhile, everybody else goes out to prepare to face the invasion and to help move people out of the city and into the Atlantean underwater complex.

X-Force reunites for one last, glorious suicide mission.

The transporter is only one-way, so Cyclops bitterly notes that he's probably sent them all to their deaths, even if they succeed (one imagines they'll end up taking the sentinels' portal back).

Elsewhere, Wolverine: Weapon X's final pre-relaunch arc continues, as Logan, New Cap, and a psychic woman wearing a hoodie go up against an army of Deathloks sent from the evil, Roxxon-run future (presumably a different one).  The story is fine, but the character interaction sparkles:

He's one of Miranda's resistance members in the future.

Also, need more Aaron-written Spider-Man.

Miranda gives Steve the names of the remaining targets from the future, and he has them removed to the Baxter Building under heavy guard.  Logan, New Cap, Miranda, and l'il Wakowski take the Deathlok body and head to go visit the man who will create the Deathloks in the future:

He can read the language of bullets. As they enter his body and kill him.

No but really, he'll read body language and just dodge them using his he-doesn't-have-super-speed power somehow.

I could sort of see that, actually. If you can buy it when Cass Cain does it, Doug can certainly pull it off.

...actually, that'd be a really funny fight. Doug vs. Cass. They just stand perfectly still for about fifteen minutes, then shrug and go get lunch.

I read that as "hug, then go out to lunch"

Which could work too.
