Official Press Release

Spread your wings, lock and load, and pop those claws because X-Force/ Cable: Messiah War Prologue is heading your way!  From the all-star team of writers, Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle, comes the sequel to the biggest X-Men event of the past decade, “Messiah CompleX!”  After the birth of the first new mutant since the House of M, the X-Men’s lives have never been the same. Cable’s stuck in the future, Bishop’s been on a hunt, and Cyclops has been doing everything in his power to ensure the future of the mutant race.  With explosive interiors from Young Guns ‘09 artist Mike Choi, prepare for all out action as Cyclops sends X-Force on a dangerous, time-traveling mission to save Cable and the child!  However, when they get to the future they’re going to find something they never could have imagined!
