Description of this Book

By now you know that Lucas Bishop - former cop, renegade X-Man - refuses to rest until he's killed the so-called 'mutant messiah'. But do you know why? To answer that question you have to look into Bishop's past - which actually means jumping 50 years into the future, when his parents barely escaped a nuclear holocaust, only to land in the most brutal 'mutant relocation' camp in the world. There, a young Bishop first heard the horror stories about the 'green-eyed monster' that ushered in the downfall of mutantkind, and swore vengeance - embarking on a life-long, time-hopping mission. Then, follow Cable and the seven-year-old mutant messiah as they go deep into the future and find themselves in the middle of humanity's last stand. Cable is forced to timeslide into an uncertain future, hoping to find survivors, or food, or water...anything. But the longer Cable and the girl wander, the greater the devastation. As they fight to survive out in the barren wastelands, the girl starts to ask Cable the tough questions he's been dreading, namely: who am I, and why do some people want me dead? This title collects X-Men: The Lives and Times of Lucas Bishop numbered 1-3 and Cable numbered 11-12.
