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.

This was a fun comic, I enjoyed the Cap stuff, the Apocalypse stuff, the fake-middle-European country stuff not so much. Love those intro pages, also!

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. Part of the problem with the story line running thin rests on the fact that Steve, like every other person to ever go to Providence finds it to be a won ...more

Continuing the great X-read of 2017 that has now stretched into 2018...

Okay. So I am way behind on reviewing these x-books that I have been reading. So I am going to just kind of ramble about all of them and copy/paste my thoughts. Which will make for a bit of a mess and I am sorry. Quick ramblings:

Cable and Deadpool continues to be surprisingly good though a little more scattered in these couple of volumes.
X-Men the Blood of Apocalypse was rushed in my opinion...
Phoenix Warsong was pretty decen

7/10, quite entertaining, although it did not progress the story much

This was a busy time for Marvel, so things get a bit scattered. Captain America, the Blood of Apocalypse storyline, Domino and lead ups to Civil War. But, it's still an entertaining read and Nicieza keeps everything well structured.

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.

I loved the "Living Legends" part and the beginning but the whole Apocalypse thing wasn't my cup of tea. Maybe because I'm not familiar with him but I know he's a 'big deal'.

The Domino/Flag Smasher story line was ok but more useful as a setup than a standalone story line I think. It looks like it's leading to interesting things but maybe not so interesting in and of itself.

Jeden z těch lepších dílů, ale na víc jak 3* to furt není. Příběhy s Capem a Domino se mi líbily, dvojdíl s Apocalypsem nebyl nic extra (ale byl to prolog, třeba se to rozjede). Cable je furt laciná kopie Ozymandiase a nebaví mě.

Quite frankly, this volume was a little boring. Maybe in the greater context of Nicieza's epic Cable & Deadpool megastory, this volume is forgivable, but as a stand-alone, this volume does not stand out in any way. ...more

The thing here is that I understand nothing of what is going on! It had never happened to me but I don't understand the Whys and the F what Cable is doing or planning.
