Ed McGuinness is awesome, I’ll say it again, and I’ll probably say it about #3 as well, and then #4, I just love his art, he makes what is essentially just a fight between Iron Man and Cable into something that’s a joy to look at. He’s just the perfect artist for the kind of comics Loeb writes. But this issue wasn’t really just big dumb punches, it really was focussed on human emotions, on a father’s love for his daughter, and the flashbacks (can they be called flashbacks if they take place in the future? But then I suppose they are in Cable’s past, gah, time-travel is confusing) to Hope as a child were very effective. Next issue promises a fight between Red Hulk and Cable, to some fans, that’s their worst nightmare. To me? It’s awesome as hell. The worst excesses of the 90s Vs the worst excesses of today! BOOM!
