Gotta say this series gives me mixed feelings.

Psylocke, Storm and Puck were sent to San Francisco at the start of the series to stop Spiral from selling drugs. Then Bishop shows up from The Future. Again.

As the series is a year in, spoilers follow.

I'm enjoying the fact this is a female-led team not featuring a baby. That, more than my dislike for Brian Wood is why I'm not reading X-Men. I like Puck's involvement, I'm enjoying Storm being away from Wolverine, I love Spiral.

However.

Bishop came back from where he was assumed dead after Cable escaped him. He cut his own arm off to put on a time-travel arm and chase Cable & Hope - but now has an arm again. Could be explained that he has a Future arm, but he has memories of having two arms after losing Cable. His power is energy absorption and redirection as blasts - now he appears to just be blasting without absorbing. He has a costume that responds to his thoughts like a Symbiote, but that bit is fine with me.
Final point: This makes a grand total of five hundred times that someone has come to the present to avoid some great calamaty. At least six of those have been just Bishop. Give him something else to do...

Oh, and the identity of the Big Bad was really great.
