Book Description

6 Jan 2010 Graphic Novel Pb
It's the exciting sequel to 2007's Messiah CompleX! Cyclops has complete faith that his son, Cable, will do everything he can to protect the so-called mutant messiah - who he believes will save mutantkind. But he also knows what havoc former X-Man Lucas Bishop has wreaked in the nightmarish future. So now he's sent his black ops team, the X-Force, on a risky, time-traveling mission to save Cable and the child, completely unaware that there's something else waiting for them in the future. Something not even Bishop was counting on... Collects X-Men: The Times and Life of Lucas Bishop #1-3, Cable #11-15, X-Force #14-16, X-Force/Cable: Messiah War One-Shot and X-Men: Future History - The Messiah War Sourcebook.

4.0 out of 5 stars Future war 9 May 2010
This was a really good book. The Cable & X-Force books have been plodding along well enough by themselves but putting the two of them together for this brought their stories to a different level. I've always been a fan of Cable, Stryfe and Apocalypse and this book delivers big time on their little hate triangle. Apocalypse is back to his old self and not a moment too soon I say. The Bishop story is well done and explains his reasoning for trying to kill Hope. The backup files on all of Cable's history is a very nice addition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh. 15 Sep 2009
So this book involves a crossover of two of the current X-books dealing with the events of Messiah Complex which is an excellent title on its own.
Cable is still in his role protecting Hope and the X-force is pulled from their mission and sent forward in time to help Cable.
Ive been really looking forward to this book but I was quite disappointed. The art actually changes mid issue at some points and being a cross over has some very varied artwork from issue to issue making it visually hard to follow. Story wise was pretty much the same. It seemed like a mish-mash of various groups and plots but never actually came across as very engaging. It was like they wanted to tell everyone's story but only had a limited amount of time/space for each plot.
The x-force issues are excellent though and I cant wait to follow them further. Deadpool was a good addition also and provided some minor humour at times.
Nothing really changes the status-quo of the X-Universe after this book though. Its not really a great read for new comers who will have no idea whats going on. Its a decent story though for any X-fan. Get it if you like the X-force/Cable books. Dont get it if you are looking for a ground breaking stand alone story.
One thing I will say about this edition though is that it is FULL of content. Its a good buy for your buck and contains more than the listed issues on the amazon summary.

3.0 out of 5 stars A fast, well-paced story with beautiful artwork 24 Jan 2012
Despite being such a massive tome, this book is a relatively quick read, which goes a long way toward saying what an entertaining, fast-paced action story the authors crafted.
This crossover (i.e., a story developing across issues of different series) brings to a climax the struggle over the purposed mutant messiah, the first mutant baby to be born in years, Hope. The plan was to send her into the future with Cable, a time-travelling mutant soldier, to let her grow safe away from those who'd seek to kill her or manipulate her. However, another time-displaced mutant, Bishop, is convinced she'll usher the horrible future he was born into and is hell bent on killing Hope before that can come to pass, no matter what the cost. His pursuit is now coming to an end, since he's wrecked enough havoc throughout Time to corner Cable and Hope into a single place in a bleak timeline. He's also enlisted the help of Cable's nemesis. In our present though, the X-Men have finally located Hour and managed to send their black-opsstrike team, X-Force, to retrieve her at all costs. The Messiah War is this set to blow up soon...
First off, the artwork is stellar here and mostly very modern, i.e. if you don't like computer-enhanced art, look another way... In any case, the main artists here are among the best in their field (above all, I'm my humble opinion, Clayton Crain) and can also tell a comic story, so I liked the art and I'd recommend anybody to give it a try. There's even some more traditional artwork by returning artist Larry Stroman, who's only gotten better and who has been sorely missed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Accomplished sequel 2 Jan 2011
I read Messiah Complex and loved it so I bought Messiah War. The story is great, but complcated. Cable is perfectly written, as is Deadpool. Deadpool is one of the finest comic creations ever. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has enjoyed recent X-men sotries like The House of M and Decimation. The story deals with Hope, a possible saviour of the mutant race, the first mutant child born since M-day and different groups' attempts to destroy or protect her. Very good read.
