All the signs are here: The Neocracy is coming – and with it comes not only the end of mutantkind, but all of the humankind as well! As if rescuing Young Nate from the ongoing threat of Orchis weren’t enough, can Cable root out this growing threat and decimate it before the Neocracy has a chance to take hold. But is he already too late to change the future? Don’t miss out on Fabian Nicieza and Scot Eaton’s explosive first issue of CABLE!

Cable #1 is a blast from the past and a glimpse into the future. Fabian Nicieza, the writer of the classic Cable & Deadpool series, returns to the character he knows best, and gives him a new mission and a new attitude. Scot Eaton and Whilce Portacio provide the art and the cover, respectively, and they capture the essence of Cable as a badass mutant warrior with a big gun and a bigger heart.

The story begins with Cable, the young time-displaced version who replaced his older self, fighting Wolverine in a friendly sparring match on Krakoa. Cable proves that he is not just a kid, but a skilled fighter who can outsmart and outwit the best of them. He then goes on a double date with Armor and Pixie, two of his fellow X-Men, and they encounter a strange creature that leads them to a hidden temple. There, they discover a secret that could change the course of history and the fate of mutantkind.

Nicieza writes Cable with a lot of humor and charm, but also with a sense of urgency and responsibility. He shows that Cable is not just a fun-loving teenager, but a leader who cares about his friends and his people. He also introduces some intriguing plot elements, and the connection between Cable and his younger self, Nate, who is being hunted by Orchis, a human anti-mutant group. The story is fast-paced and action-packed, but also full of emotion and character development.

Eaton and Portacio deliver stunning visuals that match the tone and style of the story. They draw Cable with a lot of detail and expression, showing his strength and his vulnerability. They also create a vibrant and diverse world, with scenes ranging from the lush and peaceful Krakoa, to the ancient and mysterious temple, to the futuristic and dystopian Neocracy. The action scenes are dynamic and exciting, with Cable using his powers and his weapons to fight his enemies. The colors are bright and contrast well with the darker aspects of the story, creating a striking balance.

Cable #1 is a must-read for fans of Cable, X-Men, and the Marvel Universe. It offers a fresh and exciting take on a classic character, as well as a compelling and complex story that sets up a lot of potential for the future. Nicieza, Eaton, and Portacio have crafted a masterpiece that will leave you wanting more!
