Yes, we are still on the "Cable as messiah" story arc. And I have to say, it's starting to feel a little stretched out. By the end of this volume, more than two years of stories have been dedicated to this, and I feel like we're treading the same territory. But I have to state for the record that I'm not sure Cable had fully thought through his actions in the Apocalypse story.

The "Cable is going to save the whole world, and people are freaking out about it" story line is starting to run a bit thin for me, but it's still a good story. It starts with a one-shot of Steve Rogers being sent in undercover (Really? Steve Rogers? Whose face is known internationally? Okay, Fury. Sure.) to check out Providence and report back.

Captain America is now brought in to assess the threat that Cable is posing, but the two men (after a brief tussle) end up having mutual respect for one another. Meanwhile, Cable disappears yet again, and Deadpool goes looking for him - and finds Apocalypse. And Cable, with the help of Deadpool, becomes the president pro tem of Rumekistan. But Domino, Cable's former teammate and lover, doesn't exactly believe in his ability to turn the country around without screwing up in a big way.

Why this author has such a love affair for Cable I'll never know. Despite his attempts to convince me that Cable is as iconic as Captain America, that's just ridiculous. And it further ruins the character by insisting he's significant when he isn't. The author keeps insisting he's important instead of letting him actually do things that are significant. Cable is just a big bionic MacGuffin, not a character.

But Deadpool is awesome.
