Review: Cable #150

The time-traveling mutant known as Cable has made it his one-man mission to preserve all of time itself.  But when a disturbance in the timestream sends Cable back to the recent past, he’ll find a mutant killer he won’t be able to handle alone. Cable’s led teams of X-Men before and he’ll have to turn to some old allies and new friends to stop this deadly threat. Get ready for the newer New Mutants!

The murder of an time anomaly leads to an investigation by Cable helped by Longshot and from there we’ve got Cable #150. Written by Ed Brisson the issue is a fun start that has a bit of a vibe of the 90s X-Men, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The issue is Cable bringing his team together and you can see some of them in the image to the left. There’s some fun choices here and by the end of the issue it’s only a fraction of the team though.

The issue definitely digs into the 90s with the story revolving around the Eternals (and on again/off again concept it feels like) and while the comic says “Cable” it’s a team book right now.

Brisson keeps the story flowing nicely with a solid build to the eventual action towards the end of the comic. There’s a solid mix of humor and the personalities should mesh quite well.

The art by Jon Malin is really good and definitely has a Liefeld-esque style about it all. There’s only a few panels where the depth of something seemed a little weird (again feels like the 90s and impossibly thin guns). But, it’s some of the best X art I’ve seen in some time.

The backup story by Robbie Thompson takes us through Cable’s history and condenses the convoluted intertwining stories into something that makes sense. The art by Mark Bagley is hit and miss which has been an issue with the backup stories.

I wasn’t the biggest fan of this series since its reboot but this is the shot in the arm it needed. I want to see where it goes now and can’t wait to see where the rest of the team comes from. A solid start that does what Marvel Legacy is supposed to do, get me to want to read more.
