It’s #EcksofTens… but, whatta we do when our titular hero already has his sword?  Well, we kill some time fighting generic aliens – like ya do!

Kid Cable and his folks give the upcoming S.W.O.R.D. series a hand by sorta-kinda reintroducing the concept – and that’s about it!

    I have to admit to being thrown by this issue of Cable. I couldn't see how it had anything to do with X of Tens. I found myself guessing that the aliens would turn out to be from one of the parts of Otherworld which were mysterious. As it turns out I was wrong and the events of this issue feed into X of Tens in a different way. I'm also right on the same page of not caring about SWORD and not being even slightly interested in the ongoing. It does have a bonkers cast which (post Hellions) offers hope that something interesting might happen. I get the feeling though that the actual reason we're getting a SWORD series is because of the Wandavision tv series. I doubt you're watching it but SWORD is a key element.

    Anyway until we stop getting random aliens, Make Mine X-Lapsed!
