Cable and X-Force: Vendettas HC [2014]



CABLE AND X-FORCE: VENDETTAS HARDCOVER
The month-long event unites both X-Force series leading to an all-new X-Force team. Both Cable and his daughter Hope Summers were targeted by the X-Men Bishop since X-Men: Messiah Complex (2007). They find out that Bishop is alive in the present on Uncanny X-Force. Meanwhile Stryfe is back after the events of Messiah War ready to strike at Cable. 

Stryfe arrives and kidnaps both Bishop and Hope as Cable and Uncanny X-Force team fight over their missing teammates. After the short-lived battle, Cable takes Spiral to where Hope was taken only to be confronted by his clone Stryfe. He sends Spiral back and shows Cable the daughter he raised as Hope impales her childhood tormentor Bishop.

Meanwhile both X-Forces make a makeshift Cerebro to lead them to Cable and Bishop. They pick up Spiral and use her to track down Stryfe’s location. After both X-Forces confront Stryfe, he turns hope into a bomb which only Bishop can save her. The issue abruptly ends without any conclusion. Stryfe has come and gone and the X-Forces are tangling until next month’s relaunch.
