Issue #2 Previews: Cable And The X-Force, Thunderbolts, And Avengers


This Wednesday will see a rush of #2 titles hitting your comic shop. You have Cable and X-Force coming out just a week after the first issue debuted, the next installment in the newly formed Thunderbolts, and Hickman’s next installment in his Avengers saga.

Cable and X-Force is written by Ennis Hopeless with art by Salvador Larroca. In issue 2 we see Cable and Colossus coming to blows over the events glimpsed in the opening pages of #1. In Thunderbolts we see General Ross starting the first mission in the larger plan he has for his newly recruited team. The story is written by Daniel Way and features art by Steve Dillon. In Avengers, we find out what’s happening to the team captured on Mars. Will Captain America get his new recruits back to the red rock in time?

Cable is back! NOW! with a new X-Force at his side, he must tackle the threats that nobody else can know about. But just who are Cable’s new recruits, and why is his team public enemy number one? Caught red-handed at the scene of a terrorist attack on a major American corporation whose CEO has expressed anti-mutant views, the X-Force is the run, with none other than the Uncanny Avengers in hot pursuit.







Red Hulk, Venom, Elektra, Deadpool, the Punisher. Forget the courts, the jails, the system — this team of Thunderbolts fights fire with fire, targeting the most dangerous and lethal players in the Marvel Universe with extreme prejudice. Led by General “Thunderbolt” Ross, AKA the Red Hulk, this hand-picked team of like-minded operatives is going to make the world a better place…by all means necessary.





The greatest heroes in comics together on one unbeatable team! Now shipping twice a month, the Avengers “go large,” expanding their roster and their sphere of influence to a global and even interplanetary level. When Captain America puts out his call – who will answer? Big threats, big ideas, big idealism – these are the Avengers NOW!
