The Story: “Vendetta” Part II

• Classic X-Force villain STRYFE has returned! And he’s eager to exact his revenge on the man who left him broken and adrift in the timestream: CABLE.

• As Stryfe’s plan comes to bear, Hope is brought face-to-face with Bishop, the man who crusaded across centuries in a mission to exterminate her. But this time around, she’s ready to retaliate…and they’ll hold nothing back as they race to destroy one another.

• Don’t miss this no-holds-barred, knockdown, drag-out X-FORCE event! Because when the dust settles, only ONE X-Force team will be left standing...

So both parties actually try to reason with each other before starting the hostilities? That's news for a superhero crossover.

The art looks nice, and both X-Forces look interesting together. If Hopeless and Humphries really dedicate themselves to the plot, Vendetta may turn out to be a better crossover than Battle of the Atom.

What could Stryfe want from Bishop?
He surey draws Cable for taking Hope, but I am curious to know why he dragged Bishop too.
Will they remember that time when Betsy saved the day against Stryfe using her TK sword??
Maybe she helps Cable defeat Stryfe this time.

Didn't Bishop and Stryfe tried to betray each other in the Messiah War crossover, after they had captured Hope? Maybe Stryfe wants revenge.

As for they remembering the time when Betsy defeated Stryfe, I don't think so. And honestly, I hope they don't; that whole story was a mess (in fact, I think the entire Revolution era of the X-Men should be forgotten. Claremont was an awesome writer in his original run, but man, his return in the Revolution era was really bad...).
