    So.... When will Hulk/Wolverine story continue? It's over? Is this series just gonna be a bunch of random teamups where they don't finish the story until later on down the road?

    A fairly underwhelming issue but nothing terrible. Didn't feel like I wasted my $ exactly but I doubt if I'll stick around for subsequent issues. It'll depend on the creators/characters involved and how heavy or light my pull list is that week.

    Stop using facts, please.
    Overly emotional people don't know what to do with those.

    But yeah, I liked it, thought it was fun, it was nice to see Maestro again. I also wonder when down the road they'll continue with this story (Might even be a set-up for something being done in another book?)

    I will say this, in each of the two stories, time travel was the common denominator.

    In the first case, Cable is chasing Addicus Trask around, who is trying to seed Sentinels into various timelines to make sure mutants are destroyed early. It is a 1970's version, with computer punch cards and knee pads, and he feeds punch cards into the giant Sentinel to activate it. Makes you recall that time jump Cable made to destroy the Avengers in X-Sanction, too. Remember that, when Cable thought Hope was going to be ruined so she couldn't take the Phoenix and the Earth would be burnt to a crisp? Why in hell would Cable chase kid Trask around? Those Sentinels were pretty useless, even recalling another time jump story in UXM 512, where Sebastion Shaw makes a Sentinel in 1906, too.

    In the second case, it is Maestro and Old Man Logan who are looking for Red Hulk in Avengers Tower, to kill him, so the Future Red Hulk can be sure the future doesn't turn out with Rulk in the White House. Whats interesting here as that Rulk made it into the White House in WWH's but was defeated by the Hulk and kicked out. It seems Gen Ross in an alternative time line stayed as President, and the result was a very unsavory USA, so he wanted to eliminate himself to eradicate that possibility. I guess a Nazi Future didn't particularly attract Gen Ross under his own regime. My thoughts are Rulk eliminated Hulk and the other Super Heroes and then the Skrulls came back, and he was screwed, so, better dead than Skrull.

    I quite enjoyed the two stories. Even though neither of them are likely to be followed up upon any time soon, neither one set anything up that requires any immediate follow up, but could be used by other writers sometime in the future.

    This issue was good, a steady start.

    Who says that future red is Ross?
    In X-Sanction when Cable came back in time, he thought red was Talbot. Maybe this is playing on that? Talbot's back and trying to kill Ross?

    Good catch. Loeb is writing that Rulk story, as well as this one, so all the time travel may have some significance.
