Today we start the second-half of, what I suppose we might call the Cable “maxiseries”?  We’re dipping right back in with the kidnapping plot that launched this volume, and was unfortunately slid to the back-burner for the Festival of Swords.

It’s a fun issue – and a return to form for one of our favorite books in the line!

One thought on “X-Lapsed, Episode 152 – Cable #7 (2021)

    Hi Chris, I'm back with my thoughts on Cable number 7. Hope you're well. Is it just me or is Cable one of the only books to be dealing with the aftermath of the Ecchs of Tens crossover? It seems like a weird place to see follow up.

    I very much enjoyed this story and was most impressed by how well they re-introduced elements from much earlier in the run but without confusing me. Sometimes I need a little hand holding.

    What I didn't understand was why Cable hid the involvement of Stryfe from everyone else. Why would he want to keep that secret? It's not likely that his family would be unwilling to fight against Stryfe. Weird. I do trust Duggan and Noto to have a good reason but I'm a little lost right now.

    It's just a shame that there are only 3 issues left in this series. It's great that Duggan is moving over to X-Men but I hope Noto also sticks around the X-books. They are such a good team.

    Anyway, until I get a clone from the future to help me catch up on all Chris's podcasts, Make Mine X-Lapsed!
