Top 100 Summer Comics #61

90’s X-Men isn’t for everyone. To be honest, when I read a lot of it now I’m not feeling it.

But that doesn’t mean there aren’t certain stories that pull me into complete geekdom.

Case in point: the Askani’son miniseries, and that entire alternate future. For some reason the entire post technology / organic metric future always resonated for me. But one of the rarely included pieces in the mythos is this great issue where Jeph Loeb fleshes out some of the best action.

#61 – Cable 25

Basically one of the only meaningful(?) appearances of Jenskot, y’know, Cable’s wife? Regardless, I would have preferred 1) no time travel, just an account of the future events 2) Steve Skroce over Ian Churchill 3) Gene Ha over either – but otherwise, and those things included, dig this issue. Churchill has only gotten better with time but I think he did well here. A lot can be said about Jeph Loeb but he was one of the few who really did something cool with Cable. Props.

What better way to celebrate Father’s Day than by looking at the tragic and short fatherhood of Scott Summers, aka Cyclops.

His son became Cable, for all that is good and bad with the character. But for me, the most interesting and cool part about the character is how he got there.

The story set up the entire Askani’son storyline / future and I have always been a huge fan. The Whilce Portacio art is on point. Loved it so much that I think I used to trace this cover. OOF. I don’t think the issue available here will have trace impression on the cover.
