In the aftermath of the "Messiah Complex" war, Cyclops took a leap of faith and allowed his son Cable to disappear into the time stream with the first new mutant birth since "M" day - and the future of the dwindling mutant population - tucked under his arm. Weeks later, he still waits for a sign, however small, that he made the right decision. When Bishop travels back to the present in search of intel that will aid his search for Cable and the mutant baby, he'sintercepted by the X-Force! With Cyclops eagerly waiting to interrogate his former comrade, it would appear that the game is over for the time-traveling cop. So why is Bishop smiling?
Plus, If you think it's tough being Cable, hopping through time with a bawling kid strapped to your chest, try stepping into Bishop's shoes for a while. Yeah, you're a tough, smart cop, and you're no stranger to tracking time-traveling perps, but Cable is a new kind of quarry. Not only is he an X-Man who's very familiar with the future, he's also a highly-trained soldier who knows how to cover his tracks and leave dozens of down-and-dirty traps in his wake. For you, the stakes have never been higher.

Written by DUANE SWIERCZYNSKI. Art by PAUL GULACY and GABRIEL GUZMAN. Cover by DAVE WILKINS.
We open literally one second after the shattering conclusion of "Messiah War," and Cable's mission to save mutantkind has never looked bleaker. In fact, you can't even call it a mission anymore... After all he's been through, after all he's survived...now all Cable can do now is pray-pray the heavily armed killers roaming the deep future can't match his survival skills. Then, with the Earth destroyed, Cable and Hope must venture into space. If Hope is going to make it into adulthood, she's going to have to do it in the cold, lonely vacuum of space, alone except for dark forces that know she's coming.

From the moment Cable jumped into the time stream with the infant "mutant messiah," he's had only one goal: keep Hope alive until she can choose her own destiny. But now, stranded on a planet in its death throes, eating fried rat on a stick for the millionth time, Hope turns to Cable and tells him she's ready to go home. Thus begins "Homecoming," the penultimate chapter in the X-Men saga that began with "Messiah CompleX." It's not only zero hour for Cable and Hope, but also for the mutant hunting them, Lucas Bishop, who is rapidly running out of chances to save mutantkind and the world. Because if Hope does make it back to the present, everything changes for the X-Men.
PLUS: Duane Swierczynski and Steve Dillon bring you four thrilling, untold tales from Hope's future past as she grapples with vicious snipers, robot wolf packs, mutant rats, and even Cable himself.
