Cable and Hope are reunited! It wasn't so long ago that Nathan and his young ward, the prophesied savior of the mutant race, were fleeing from the murderous Bishop across a barren future wasteland. But now Bishop isn't the only one hell-bent on hunting down the daddy/daughter duo: A strange techno-organic creature wants them dead! As fear consumes Cable, can he fend off both Bishop and a bloodthirsty monster — or will Hope be lost? And what is the creature's connection to Cable? Then, Nathan resumes the Hellfire Hunt as his Age of Apocalypse half-brother, X-Man, returns! But is the world ready for an original X-Force revival? Just ask Cannonball, Domino, Feral, Boom-Boom and Shatterstar! Plus: A journey back to Cable's childhood with Redd and Slym!
