    The entire issue was an action packed fun read which is what you want when Cable is involved. If I had any real complaints it was that Cyclops was plastered over the cover implying a huge Cyclops/Cable moment and their conversation may have spanned 5 pages at most. At least it hinted they'd be talking again soon. Read Full Review

    The more deep emotional material comes in the interaction between Colossus and Domino. Hopeless has managed to build up a solid relationship and rapport between the two characters in a short time, and it's already paying off. More than any other character right now, Colossus seems to be the emotional center of the book. Sadly, the Cable/Cyclops pairing didn't have as much emotional resonance as I was hoping. Hopeless writes some nice father/son dialogue, but ultimately Cyclops' presence just felt unnecessary and poorly timed. Read Full Review

    CABLE AND X-FORCE is a great series. It's a big fun heist comic that manages to explore deep and complicated ideas, all while treating it's abnormal and idiosyncratic characters with respect. One of Marvel's more unique and off kilter titles, it's a must for fans of the lesser known characters of the X-franchise, but will be just as savoured by anyone looking for an exciting and personal superhero story.

    Regardless, Cable and X-Force is a damn entertaining book. Hopeless has found an unlikely chemistry in the cast, helped along by having a really good grasp on all the characters involved. Yes, Cyclops' appearance is a letdown. But hopefully, Hopeless means it when he has Cyclops say they will talk for real soon. Read Full Review

    CABLE AND X-FORCE has a lot of promise. There's a lot of cool elements to this story, and I like most of these characters. The art team here is great, and I really enjoyed the dialogue and banter between most of the characters.The problem is that the overall story falls flat. I never felt anything was at stake and all these stories feel so disjointed. I really want this book to work, and while there is a lot of good here, there's just as much that frankly isn't working.

    "Cable and X-Force" #7 continues an interesting mission for the team but it also shows how uninteresting some of these characters are right now. The heady connection between Domino and Colossus is mesmerizing and this should come to the fore. Much like Rick Remender used Psylocke and Archangel in "Uncanny X-Force" as the foundational base, this title needs to find its heart and core and then build from there instead of just using action set pieces in lieu of anything meaningful.
