    Every time-travel story requires a flashback or two to flesh out the narrative. This flashback was set two-thousand years in the future, but despite such timey-wimey shenanigans the story was wonderfully clear. This was a good tale, told with sensitivity, and augmented by some lovely gory art. It has everything youd want in an X-Force book -- and its an excellent jumping-on place for new readers.

    The issue is an interesting one as it gives us some of the “why” as far as Kid Cable's mission but also leaves open some questions as to whether he's truly in the right as far as it. It's also nice that Brisson is delivering a new take on Stryfe as well as the two characters go together and it feels like too long since we've gotten a good take on the modern classic villain.

    The issue is missing the charm and banter of the current X-Force squad for most of the issue, so that's definitely a negative. Read Full Review
