The X-Men are undergoing a fairly significant relaunch in the pages of Marvel Comics, and now the hardcore staple Cable is getting his very own series.
Cable will tackle a story with all of time hanging in the balance, written by Eisner Award-winner James Robinson (Nick Fury) and artist Carlos Pacheco (Occupy Avengers, Captain America). Check out the logline for Cable’s solo adventure below:
When Cable picks up the trail of a threat in the timestream, he sets off on a high-speed chase through time to save reality as we know it. From prehistory to modern day—whether it's a six-gun duel at high noon or a high-tech sword fight in an ancient land—Cable is the only man who can keep history from unraveling!
There aren’t a whole lot of Marvel series that go jumping around the time stream, and Cable is a fantastic character with a lot of angles, so this series could definitely hit a sweet spot. The fact that the creative team is top notch doesn’t hurt, either.
The first issue of Cable drops May 31.
