EXCLUSIVE: Major X and Cable Make Waves in Marvel Preview

If comic books have proven anything, it's that everything can explode. As a result, the superhero branch of the medium is full of heroes barely escaping a plethora of detonating nouns: facilities, caves, laboratories, planets, universes. A preview for Major X #3 sees the eponymous hero and his father, Cable, escaping an undersea base just before it, you know, explodes.

The preview follows directly after the events of Major X #2, which saw Major X and Cable exploring the underwater Graymalkin base as they searched for answers regarding the destruction of the X-Istence, as well as the location of the realm's creator, the X-Ential. Neither hero found the answers they were looking for, but they did throw down with villains Sharkskin and Eel.

The preview also reveals what Wolverine and the alternate reality version of Beast, M'Koy, were up to while Major X and Cable were risking their lives. Apparently, the answer is "having a tussle." As Major X and Cable fight off their attackers in Graymalkin, Wolverine and M'Koy were having a bit of fun by sparring in the Danger Room. The team's next steps will undoubtedly be outlined in Major X #3.

Major X #3 goes on sale May 1. Rob Liefeld writes the issue. Whilce Portacio provides the art. Liefeld also provides the issue's cover.
