    This mini-series is sticking to the heart of an X-Men story with action appropriate for a Cable comic. Cable #2 has something for everyone – it is full of action, develops the relationship between Cable and Kid Cable, and has stunning art. I was originally worried that this mini-series would have an issue with making the stakes and villains feel important in a self-contained story during the Fall of X event, but Nicieza’s storytelling talent dispels that concern. This mini-series is a master class in writing Cable and a must-read for fans who love the Summers family.

    Though it’s got small flaws – and though it gives preferential treatment to one-half of the Cable crew – Cable #2 diverges from the bleak happenings surrounding Krakoa to deliver a story that utilizes the character’s specific time-spanning concerns. It endeavors, however uneasily, to reinstate a somewhat neglected depth to a incredible character.

    It’s the same old, same old when it comes to the old character whose name is on the cover of Cable #2, an uninspired but serviceable tale. Fans of the writer’s back catalog in the line will be hyped for moments, that will leave most others pretty cold.

    Cable has a role to play in the grander scheme of the Fall of X event, and that role is a somewhat vital one. The role in the overall event unfortunately takes priority over the series story from time to time, making for a frustrating narrative. But the dynamic of the two Cables is a strong one and their back-and-forth elevates this book from quite a few Cable adventures in recent years.
