Somebody give Teen Cable a copy of Days of Future past. Doing things in your own time to prevent an outcome someone from the future tells you about is NOT "changing time to suit {your} own needs." Rachel, you're standing right there, tell him! It's literally your reason for even existing as a character! So, no, Teen Cable and this whole interstitial Stryfe plot is all just one time travel knot more

Not even a fine writer like Ed Brisson was able to save this irrelevant story which was basically rendered irrelevant by the coming of Jonathan Hickman’s X Men.
The stakes of the story are minimal, the existence of Kid Cable is never fully justified dramatically. So suddenly everybody loves him even if he killed old Cable for not protecting the timeline?
And the worst thing, art is te more

That was so weird. I honestly don't know how it ties to the rest of the series, and the last couple of pages felt even more out of left field. But the art was great and I give Ewing credit for trying to stretch his talents into pure SF.

Would have been much more effective for me if it would have been written in a "normal" manner. And while I appreciate the effort this just came across as too smart for its own good. At least for me. The art was great.

Absolute must have for any Alpha Flight fan.
We get several stories which acknowledge the characters’ past history and plant seeds for the future.
The Snowbird and Talisman team up is eery and phantasmagoric.
The Puck-Marrina team up is revealing about the characters’ past and explores some interesting possibilities.
And most intriguing is the Vindicator Guardian story. Nee more

This is great writing. However it shows some of Hickman’s excesses, like bending character to plot like he did in The New Avengers.
In that series, a secret group of Avengers, The Illuminati, formed a black ops team in charge of destroying worlds, making the aforementioned Avengers mass murderers in a cosmic scale.
Spoilers. The X Men forming their own country is interesting (something more

Avengers 24 had way too much talking by Cosmic Ghost Rider for my liking in what turned out to be a very uneven issue. The fight between Cosmic Ghost Rider and the Avengers was wordy and way too stretched out yet beautiful drawn and packed with spot-on humor. The good news is, this issue finally makes Robbie and Johnny’s race feel fun and important. Good issue but still a ton of room for improve more

Well, Jason Aaron is a great writer and his Avengers’ run has been stellar. His run has been full of daring ideas, but he hits a bump here. Your enjoyment of this issue will be directly proportional to how big a fan you are of Cosmic Ghost Rider. I’m not.
Not a bad story by any means, and the Johnny Blaze King of Hell storyline i interesting. Robbie Reyes and his car are not that interest more
