Transia and its new anti-mutant government have wasted no time rounding up mutants and shipping them off to who knows where. Young Cable and his new team reluctant allies decide to help as best they can by disrupting shipments and freeing as many mutants as possible from the government.
Their actions do not go unnoticed as the new head of the Transian government decides to pay a visit to his partner, Ahab. In their interaction, we learn hat happened to the mutant hunter as well as why the new President has such a visceral hatred of mutants.
As the stakes get higher and tensions between members of X-Force begin to grow, the President makes a bold statement to his benefactors from the future and launches an assault designed to destroy the mutants encampment.
Ed Brisson isn’t messing around with the immediacy, pace and tension in this series and this issue specifically. Things are moving in rapid succession throughout the story and that adds to the drama. Cable’s relationship with the team sits on the edge of a knife and that tension fuels some great dialogue as Cable refuses to apologize for what he did and the rest of the team refuse to see him as their old friend and mentor. Brisson keeps everyone tense and off-balance and that adds to the unique nature of this team and this story.
Dylan Burnett goes all out with the drama and action with the amazing art in this issue. Every page drives the story forward and follows the pace of the story well.
