Bridge calls in the one man he trusts to investigate--Cable! But the Askani'son may have bitten off more than even he can chew when he faces not only Bastion, but Marvel's original misunderstood mechanoid: Machine Man! Has this once-heroic robot joined Bastion's campaign of anti-mutant hatred? Continued in Machine Man and Bastion Annual (1998) #1. Written by Michael Higgins and Karl Bollers. Art and wraparound cover by Rick Leonardi and Dan Green. Cover price $2.99.
Sinister returns in an adventure tied directly into the ongoing Cable series (and "End Times")! Cable--whom he bred to be the ultimate mutant--is never very far from the sight of Sinister. But the mad genius engineered his birth for a specific purpose--to destroy Apocalypse! Now the man once known as Nathaniel Essex has returned to offer the Askani'son what may be his only chance to beat Apocalypse. The terrible questions are: how can Cable defeat his arch-nemesis now that his powers are almost gone; just what will he have to give up to achieve his ultimate goal; and is even the demise of Apocalypse worth the price? Written by Michael Higgins and Karl Bollers. Pencils by German Garcia and Alitha Martinez. 48 pages. Cover price $3.50.
