All AVENGERS: X-SANCTION Covers Revealed

Marvel prepares fans for Cable's return and the release of the first issue.

In case you didn't notice, this week was absolutely chock full of Marvel news. First we had the Avengers vs X-Men announcement, and then it was revealed that Marvel's upcoming AVENGERS: X-SANCTION would serve as a sort of a prologue to the AVENGERS vs X-MEN event.

If you've been awaiting Cable's return and are anxious to discover the circumstances that will bring him back to comics, then you'll be happy to know that you won't have to wait for very much longer. Earlier today Marvel released some teaser images as well as the full list of titles that will feature the AVENGERS: X-SANCTION event.

When Cable came back we knew it had to be big, but I had no idea that we could get superstars STEVE SKROCE and IAN CHURCHILL -- who I had a blast working on the monthly Cable comic back in the day - and, making his return to Marvel, STEPHEN PLATT to all do variant covers for AVENGERS X-SANCTION!” exclaimed Loeb. “This series is a celebration of everything we love about Nathan Summers and it wouldn’t have felt complete without all these guys onboard.”

The creative team knew that the return of Cable had to be big, but what will happen? How will he return? What will Hope's reaction to Cable's return be and what is his connection to the upcoming AVENGERS vs. X-MEN event? Be on the look out for AVENGERS: X-SANCTION #1 due to hit stores next Wednesday, December 14th.

Somehow, it wood appear Cable has acquired a lightsaber in his travels. I'm sure he's waiting to use that against Cap's shield & Wolverine's bone disorder.

I gotta say, when he's not playing Obi Wan to Deadpool I don't really like Cable.

Yes, it definitely looks like the Loebforce has now infested Cable. Please don't allow the Loebforce to be the reason behind an X-victory if that's what the writer's are intending...

I really like the art for the cover where Cable and Iron Man are fighting. That has to be my favorite out of all of them

He used one in his (I think) third appearance. RED HULK IS THE ENEMY OF LOGIC! 
 
Cable better have his powers back, otherwise there will be some serious PIS involved as to why the Avengers don't kick his *ss.

cable is goin' off, that much is clear. i'm not sure if he should be able to come out on the winning end of a one on one battle with each of the avengers. then again he may have FUTURE INTEL.

Maybe he'll use power dampening tech like Ultimate Cable.

I'll be honest, I don't get the purpose of this book. We all know Cable won't kill any of them.

How can Cable possibly go head to head with Iron Man?

I am confused, as well. And I don't see any benefit to bringing him back to life.

- Depends on which version of Cable, his power level has changed so many times over the years.

- At his lowest point Iron Man would stomp him, at his height it would be the opposite.

I don't feel a heavy interest. But I'm minding that I've never been completely let down by a Cable story. Not on the top of my to read list but I won't pass if I have the time to spend reading it.
