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.

Volume 4 - 1st printing. "Homecoming!" Collects Cable (2008 2nd Series) #21-25 and X-Men: Hope (2010). Written by DUANE SWIERCZYNSKI. Art by GABRIEL GUZMAN, HUMBERTO RAMOS, LAN MEDINA, PAUL GULACY and STEVE DILLON. Cover by MARKO DJURDJEVIC.
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.
