    At first it seemed like their mission was maybe going to last just for the issue because, seriously Cable can see into the future and their foe is a fast food chain, it doesn’t particularly sound like a multiple issue problem, but Hopeless, Larroca, and D’Armata leave us with some good surprises at the end.

    Overall, I enjoyed the issue, but I had some larger problems with it. If we had half stars, this would fit perfectly into the 3.5 category. The art on this issue is fantastic, as it usually is, but I had a big problem with the repetition of panel layouts and the over-use of medium and close-up shots.I thought the story for this issue was fantastic. I loved seeing the plan for this team come together and Forge's scene was probably my favorite part of the issue, including seeing through his eyes how he uses his powers. I didn't like Hope's treatment here though.Overall, it was pretty solid, and I recommend it. Read Full Review

    Cable and X-Force #3 isn't the strongest of the Marvel NOW! titles released in the last few weeks, but it is an intriguing development for Cable fans. The wordy conversations are useful for presenting the characters and how they are set in this story, even if they detract from the amount of action. Hopeless, Larroca and D'Armata are doing justice for every one of the characters in this series, and any fan of these heroes should feel satisfied with this issue. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Kevin Mak Jan 12, 2013

    This issue is better than I expected. Although the idea is not original, the art and characters makes this series a must read for the post-A vs. X Marvel universe. With any new team, mistakes will be made. With mistakes comes consequences. With Cable and his team branded as outlaws and mutant terrorists, I look forward to seeing who they will face next.

    Den Of Geek! - Marc Buxton Jan 9, 2013

    Let's just hope that those stories will be a little less heavy handed than having X-Force war with an ignorant fast food entrepreneur. Being topical in comics is sometimes a mixed bag, what is a hot button issue today will seem dated quickly. While the tragedy of bigotry is universal, the ignorance of fast food moguls seems clunky and unworthy of such iconic characters. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jan 9, 2013

    So basically, the series wouldn't be half bad if it were just "X-Force" and not "Cable and X-Force." At the very least, I'm hoping that the series will even out a bit and ditch the nonlinear format after this debut arc. Read Full Review

    "Cable and X-Force" #3 finally has its team of mutants united under one mission, and the plot is speeding up, but the writing and the art are both pushing more style than substance, and at $3.99 for twenty pages, the mild suspense created may not be enough to keep readers coming back.

    Comic Booked - Matt Watson Jan 12, 2013

    So, Cable and X-Force so far has left me mostly cold. It's simply not moving fast enough to hold my attention, and is taking too long to capitalize on the promise of the first-issue set-up. It may end up being a decent read in trade, but unless they bring in a bit of visual variety, then it will remain dull and confusing. In all good faith, despite really wanting to like it, I simply cannot recommend Cable and X-Force as anything other than a cheap cure for insomnia. Read Full Review

    The only reason this gets two points is because of Larroca's vastly improved art style that is leaps and bounds better than his work on Iron Man. Read Full Review
