    The one thing THE ONE THING that was interesting about kid cable was that in extermination it was implied he was a new timeline a correction to cables failures. This being part of a loop going back to of cable makes the story meaningless like O5 arc. Duggan is a hack!!!

    Taki's always been in vehicles, like his wheelchair, car, choppers, etc... Theoretically, couldnt he create an exo-suit using his powers so he can walk?

    I also hope we see more of Cerise, Xandra, Broo and the Starjammers. In fact, Broo seems like a more natural fit for the "teen genius in space" role than Wiz Kid.

    Dream line-up:
    Brand (leader)
    Cortez
    Rogue
    Gambit
    Frenzy
    Manifold
    Cannonball (without Sunspot because he'd work better in X-Corp)
    + Kid Gladiator, Broo, Xandra and Cerise in supporting roles.
    Good line up, I'd want to read that except that X-Factor and (especially) Hellions have convinced me (for now) to sit back and roll with the wacky. I'm completely onboard with giving some of the batshit-crazy lineups we've been getting in the Krakoan era a shot because so far, they've delivered.

    Thousands are dead floating in space but it's not the Avengers fault, they thought they sided with the friendly aliens

    By making unilateral decisions on behalf of Earth, the Avengers took away Alpha Flight's chance to get ahead of the invasion

    I hope Fabian Cortez is the breakout character of this book like Scalphu— I mean Greycrow is in Hellions. Heck, he appeared out of nowhere and died a few times and as far as I know, never got a real origin.

    I'm assuming if he's been resurrected he can walk normally? I don't remember the specifics of his disability, I'm just glad he's being used. That little side plot during Inferno was so sweet.

    He wasnt resurrected bc he wasnt dead. He's still in a wheelchair which suggests that he is still paralyzed

We know he has to get back to the future to live out his life, grow up and come back to this era to do all the things he did in the past, from forming X-Force to joining the X-men to raising Hope in the future so she could re-start the mutant race (or species, sub-species, whatever), right? And ultimately he grows old and dies by his own hand, thus he's trapped in a loop (like the film 'Looper').

    But what if he didn't have to do that. What if he takes off and joins S.W.O.R.D. and Cyclops and Jean hatch a plan, with Hope's help, to free their son from this burden and give him a new life here in the present day? They could simply break the rules of the Resurrection Protocols and clone him, sending that clone back to his future to do all that, and all along the real Cable stayed here and the one he killed was a clone. Boom. Mind blown. It would negate everything we knew about OG Cable, in that he was basically a clone like Stryfe (albeit one with the T-O infection which dampens his powers like the original Nathan), but it would work and free him from this trap (time loop).

    Just a thought. I'd much prefer Kid Cable going back to the future and them resurrecting the older version to give him a new lease on life, freeing him from the trap that way. But this way works too.
    Neat theory, though it runs into the 'disposable clone' thing that's plagued poor Maddie. My super dark theory is that Kid Cable is a clone made by Xavier to get Scott to quietly go along with everything. Remember, Scott, when directly asked if he's OK with what's going on near the end of HoXPoX, said he didn't care because he finally had his family with him. And OG Cable probably wouldn't have been OK working for Sinister and Apocalypse, for how much Sinister messed with his mother and how his entire life was supposed to be done to ensure Apocalypse never came to power.

    The Avengers definitely screwed up, but 'took away Alpha Flight's chance'? Alpha Flight literally did nothing and didn't get involved until the invasion was underway. They totally failed, and Brand was in charge. If AF didn't even know about it, then that's still a failure on their part because THAT IS LITERALLY THEIR JOB!

    And the 'unilateral decision based on Earth' is funny if SWORD is going to be Krakoa NASA. Alpha Flight was supposed to be a unilateral Earth group, and having failed to lead that Brand is running away to start a new organization that makes unilateral decisions for Earth controlled entirely by Krakoa.

    The Avengers are cops, they should have kicked it up the ladder instead of going rogue

    Brand can't lead Alpha Flight if the Avengers are going to be so incestuous and only trust themselves.

    ??? This argument is obtuse. Alpha Flight is a space organization. They're in space all the time. They monitor space, all the time.

    They failed to address the situation, at all.

    X-men managed to take part, before Alpha Flight did.

    When your sole job is "Stop alien invasions" and you don't even make it to the days long alien invasion that's all across the planet, you kinda suck ass at your job.

    Oh wow. That’s a damn good theory and I love it!
