Marvel Comics Universe & Cable #2 Spoilers & Review: Dawn Of X / X-Men Event X Of Swords Continues To Be Teased As Deadpool Looms?

Marvel Comics Universe and Cable #2 Spoilers and Review follows.

Dawn Of X / X-Men Event…

…X Of Swords Continues To Be Teased…

…As Deadpool Looms?

We open with a dramatis personae and…

…the story opens with mutant baby kidnapping.

Cable seeks out the police to help with the kidnapping, but…

…they don’t seem interested despite the looming international incident as Krakoa is considered its own mutant country and mutants everywhere as its citizens.

As part of his investigation his girlfriend, Esme from the Stepford Cuckoos who are clones of Emma Frost, joins him.

They enter the home where the child was kidnapped and by unsheathing his sword, Cable sends an unintended beacon…

…to aliens who want the Sword of Galador aka the Light of Galador.

They arrive at the home…

…a battle ensues and…

…Cable loses and is kidnapped with Esme!

The book ends with Cyclops, Cable’s father, getting in on the original mutant kidnapping.

Below is the formal X of Swords checklist.

X of Swords looks promising.

Cable acquiring a sword doesn’t appear to be a coincidence. Next up is Cable #3 with Deadpool’s return out on August 19, 2020.

The Pulse:

Very relatable human elements to the story plus a mystery around the abductions and Cable’s sword. Decent art. Nice Old Man Cable – or “regular” aged Cable backstory was fun. 7 out of 10.
