Captain America is now brought in to assess the threat that Cable is posing, but the two men (after a brief tussle) end up having mutual respect for one another. Meanwhile, Cable disappears yet again, and Deadpool goes looking for him - and finds Apocalypse. And Cable, with the help of Deadpool, becomes the president pro tem of Rumekistan. But Domino, Cable's former teammate and lover, doesn't exactly believe in his ability to turn the country around without screwing up in a big way.

Altogether, this is another relatively solid offering in the series, even though it feels a little thrown together at times. There's not as much interaction here between Cable and Deadpool as in previous trades, but this trade is setting up for the Civil War and their ultimate "divorce" (Deadpool's words, not mine!) as they choose different sides.
