Cable is back! NOW! with a new X-Force at his side, he must tackle the threats that nobody else can know about. But just who are Cables new recruits, and why is his team public enemy number one? Caught red-handed at the scene of a terrorist attack on a major American corporation whose CEO has expressed anti-mutant views, the X-Force is the run, with none other than the Uncanny Avengers in hot pursuit.

    I was genuinely torn over the score with this issue. I was inclined at first to go with 3 stars. While Hopeless is doing a good job handling each character and the overall plot is slowly unfolding, I feel as though the content here isn't enough to justify Marvel's $3.99 cover price. It's good so far, but certainly not great. Nevertheless, the art is just so damn good and that alone definitely warrants a boost from 3 to 4. Read Full Review

    Cable and X-Force #2 may not have been as strong of an issue on all fronts as #1 was, but the flaws do not subtract from the enjoyment of the story development. The flaws pointed out in the art are a bit nit-picky, but again do not damage the enjoyability of this issue. This team is taking this series somewhere really cool, and the plot develops some very intriguing new ideas. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Christopher Williams Dec 21, 2012

    Overall this is shaping up to be a nice book with a nicely paced story. My only grievance with the story is its direction. I am still wondering exactly where the story is taking us, but for now I am just going to sit back and enjoy the ride. Read Full Review

    A bunch of mutants team up together to fight bad guys. Yawn. I will say that Hopeless is doing a fine job with the characters, but that just means the only reason to buy this book is for the characters. The plot, the story and the potential are all squandered. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Dec 24, 2012

    The big problem, really, is that "Cable and X-Force" is a book that's still finding its feet in a marketing event filled with creators who have hit the ground running. Hopeless is one of Marvel's most interesting new voices in some time, but there's a danger that with so much high-profile competition, his book will be the first on the chopping block when people are cutting back their pull lists as a result of the Marvel NOW! prolific release schedule. There's nothing massively wrong with the book, but two issues of relatively slow burn and teased-out exposition doesn't seem like the best tactic for grabbing those all-important fence-sitters. Let's hope Hopeless gets a chance to prove himself with more issues. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Dec 19, 2012

    I'm not ready to write this series off yet. However, I don't want to have to wade through an entire story arc full of jumbled storytelling before getting a clear sense of what place Cable and X-Force will occupy in the X-Men franchise. With Uncanny X-Force's relaunch imminent, this series really needs to make a stronger case for itself immediately. Read Full Review
