Cable Returns To 90’s Form With AVENGERS: X-SANCTION

There was that CABLE REBORN teaser a few months back with Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuiness’ names attached that had us all kind of roll our eyes, but now we know it’s actually Cable crossing into…uh, The Avengers. The official title is Avengers: X-Sanction, which I guess puts it in the awkward place of an X-Men event and an Avengers event. The story features Cable, somehow surviving the events of Second Coming (a story which Loeb promises to tell) and returning to deal with The Avengers, believing they’ll have a negative impact on the future of Hope Summers somehow. You can find more info here.

I’m honestly not too fond of Cable returning to his 90s big guns commando look. I thought we’d toned down the giant shoulder pads and firearms, but with Liefeld drawing Hawk & Dove for DC, I guess the 90s are back in fashion again. Or still. Whichever.

Avengers: X-Sanction, by Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuiness, starts this December.
