CABLE #1 Breaks Out the Big Guns This Spring!
New Series Launching as Part of ResurrXion
Lock and load, True Believer – Cable is back, and better than ever! Brand new mission, brand new creators, non-stop action! Marvel is pleased to announce the all-new CABLE #1 – coming at you this Spring from Eisner Award-winning writer James Robinson (Scarlet Witch, Squadron Supreme) and blockbuster artist Carlos Pacheco (Occupy Avengers, Captain America)!
“One of the things about Cable is he’s a ‘time warrior’. Time travel is part of his make-up in almost every aspect of his history – no pun intended. This series will be Cable on a race against time to fix time. And in the course of Cable’s mission, we’ll see him in a lot of great time periods like 15th century Japan, WWI, the Stone Age, Victorian England and on and on, with those time periods made more crazy and sci-fi by time being fractured by the villain of our series.”
— James Robinson, Via Marvel.com

Cable is Nathan Summers and is the son of Scott Summers (Cyclops) and Madelyne Pryor (Jean Grey's clone), he is also half brother to Rachel Summers-Grey. Cable is from a possible post-apocalyptic future timeline having been transported to the there to save his life. Cable traveled to the past with one mission; kill Apocalypse to prevent his future from happening. To do this he traveled to his home timeline and set out recruiting a team of mutants to launch a preemptive strike in hopes of preventing Apocalypse's rise to power.
Louise Simonson and artist/co-writer Rob Liefeld created the character Cable who first appeared in 1990's New Mutants #87 as a "Man of Action" to lead the New Mutants. It was later revealed that the character had been introduced four years prior in 1986's Uncanny X-Men #201 as the infant Nathaniel Summers by writer Chris Claremont. Since then Cable has appeared in solo titles as well as team books such as New Mutants, X-Force, Cable and X-Force, and currently be found in, Uncanny Avengers.
"I was given a directive to create a new leader for the New Mutants. There was no name, no description besides a 'man of action', the opposite of Xavier. I created the look, the name, much of the history of the character. After I named him Cable, Bob suggested Quinn and Louise had Commander X"
