|“||The only thing stopping me from achieving that dream of tomorrow is the reality of saving the world today||„|
Cable is Nathan Summers, the son of Scott Summers and Madelyne Pryor, a clone of Jean Grey. Mister Sinister had secretly created Madelyne with the plan for her and Scott to produce a powerful mutant child that could destroy Apocalypse.
Unfortunately, Apocalypse captured Nathan as a baby and infected him with a deadly techno-organic virus. Scott reclaimed his son after a battle, but could do nothing save him from the TO Virus. Scott's only option was to send Nathan into the future where the Askani tribe could save and raise him. In that future, Apocalypse seized power and exerted his evil influence on the world. Cable became a messianic warrior seeking to end Apocalypse's evil, but he was pursuing his destiny thousands of years too late.
Unsuccessful in bringing peace about in the future, Cable has returned to his original (616) timeline for several periods as an adult. Notably, he mentored the New Mutants and then X-Force for a time; worked with, and joined the X-Men on many occasions; and eventually took the Mutant Messiah, Hope Summers, into the future to raise her, and then returned her. He continues to work with various teams in the present to protect the future.
