    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 the downfall of mutantkind, and swore vengeance - embarking on a life-long, time-hopping mission that begins here, in this special three-part mini-series. You haven't heard the 'Messiah Complex' story until you've heard Bishop's side of the story.

The flow and pace (not just this issue but the entire volume) was just right, but, since it is only a three issue volume details are skimmed over. Most importantly, the key points, such as Bis...

    Note: This is an overall review of 3 issues.  Overview Bishop's true origin and point of view is told when his character and motivations came to be. The Good If you have read the Cable Vol. 2 issues, you can understand why Bishop is doing what he's doing. Bishop desparately wanting to save his future no matter what the costs even if it's killing one "Mutant Messiah."
