|Story/s:||Too Many Cooks|
We learn Pietro is dead, but Voodoo and Deadpool save him, Deadpool by CPR and Voodoo by retrieving his soul from the demons. Boston has been quarantined… nobody in or out. Things get tense between the people wanting to get out and the police stopping them. The tension is broken by a large pack of plant-dogs chasing the citizens. Then boom, Cable arrives and vapourises the plant-dogs.
Cable goes on to explain that where he came from, 2087 where the world has been consumed by this … infection. He’s gunning to take command of the mission and see it out successfully as the future he’s from, they failed. He goes on the explain these things are more like plants then animals. He’s also developed an enzyme inhibitor for the infection. Quicksilver rushes to M.I.T. with a sample of the inhibitor to synthesize and make in bulk.
The Shredded Man approaches the remaining Avengers and Cable. Cable fires on him blowing a large hole in his abdomen but he quickly heals from it. He has with a mutated police officer who he pushes forward and explodes. The exploding officer contains sky high levels of neurotoxins and psychoactive spores. Rogue is hit hardest as she was already suffering from T-mist exposure. Cable works to save her and finds out Synapse is an Inhuman and immune to the poisons of the Shredded Man.
He orders her to follow to Shredded Man but not to engage. So once she finds him… she engages. In the process she rips off his mask to find it’s her Grandfather.
Too many cooks indeed. Wonder what happens if Cable sticks around. Will he become field leader? I like Cable, so I’m probably bias when I say I hope he joins the team. ALthough an Avengers team with Cable AND Deadpool is just weird.
