Index to Cable, part 1 (up to iss. 96) Version 2.5, last modified October 6, 2001 (including Cable: Blood & Metal, The Adventures of Cyclops and Phoenix; Further Adventures of Cyclops and Phoenix; Askaniıson; Rise of Apocalypse; Astonishing X-Men; Phoenix) by Robert Diehl (email@example.com) Introduction: Who were the members of Six Pack? Who created Stryfe? What was Cableıs favorite diner? How is Cable related to Cyclops? Phoenix? Rachel? Tolliver? Nate Grey? Whoıs the lamest sidekick: Prosh, Domino, or Blaquesmith? Fabian Nicieza: Massive crossovers are out of vogue now, but the X-Cutionerıs Song was a good one. Nicieza was writing X-Force at the time, and spun off Cable into his own series, a mutant mercenary with a time machine, an evil twin, and many large guns. He wrote the Blood & Metal LS and the first 10 issues of the regular series. Best: taking Liefeldıs bionic Nick Fury knock-off and bringing him into Xavierıs dream. Not-So-Much-the-Best: the resultant Summers family tree. Jeph Loeb: After an 4 issues by Glenn Herding, he wrote for 2 years (iss. 15-39), handling the Phalanx Covenant, the Age of Apocalypseıs X-Man, and Onslaught, and giving Cable a freaky little sidekick, Blaquesmith. Best: teaming up with Storm; his introduction to Nate Grey; making even Psychoman enjoyable. Not-So-Much-the-Best: Sugarman as the force behind Genosha. James Robinson: After 4 issues by Todd DeZago, he took over for 8 months (iss. 44-50). He gave Cable early history with Moira and Xavier and a new sidekick, Irene Merryweather. Best: Cableıs key role during Op: Zero Tolerance. Not-So-Much-the-Best: the Hellfire Hunt. Joe Casey: He stepped up to the plate for 2 years (iss. 51-70) and gave Cable a waitress for a love interest and refocused on the impending battle with Apocalypse. Best: Stacey and her son. Not-So-Much-the-Best: Truman the SHIELD hitman, the Harbinger of Apocalypse, Caesar and the monks. Joe Pruett: He took over for less than a year and wrote the Twelve storyline. Best: bringing back Caliban, who deserves better. Not-So-Much-the-Best: the Twelve and the Ages of Apocalypse. Ugly! Robert Weinberg: He wrote for just over a year and managed to save the book from the mutant massacre of cancellations when Jemas and Quesada took over. They banned time-travel stories and then banned Weinberg. Best: killing Irene to stop Aenteros, paying respects to Andy Carmodyıs widow, bringing back Rachel. Not-So-Much-the-Best: Gaunt, Nightcrawler taunting him after Moiraıs death, black Irene. Honorable Mention: Todd DeZagoıs life lesson in iss. 43. Dishonorable Mention: Herding pairing Cable with Lee Forrester (iss. 13), when daddyıs already been there. Anyway, Enjoy the index. Let me know if you find any mistakes.

He is a rogue brain-washed time-travelling Canaanite agent who seeks vengeance on Cable, his father who shot him (see iss. 1). Cable meets with Domino over the grave of Madelyn Pryor (mom), and Sinister shows up, too (grampa?), seeking to help, and indicates Stryfe was Cableıs clone. He helps Stryfe (whose body was destroyed in X-Force 18) take over Cableıs mind, and he attacks Domino. Askani (actually a life-like facsimile) ports to Xavierıs boathouse, on a mission to save Jean and Scott. She realizes Stryfe has arrived but is captured by Tyler and Zero.

He interrogates Askani, getting the story of baby Nathan: transported to the future (X-Factor 68) and nearly dead, Mother Askani orders a clone made, which was stronger than the original because it had almost no trace of the T-O virus. The Askani order was then crushed, ruining their plans to raise either as the worldıs savior from Apocalypse. Stryfe in Cableıs body attacks suspicious members of X-Force: Siryn and Rictor. In Xavierıs Jean watches old videos of Scott, Nathan and Maddie. Domino drags her bloody body up and tells them Nathan is Cable. She takes them to Camp Verde (what a dump!) to stop Stryfe.

Since Tyler was mind-linked to her at the time, all her memories start displaying through him: how Apocalypse attacked the Askani and took baby Stryfe, while baby Nathan got away with Boak. Zero brings the good guys up to speed, then ports them to Tylerıs base. Cyclops blasts him, which just gets him angry; Zero channels the Askaniıs energy through him; Xavier and Jean bring all their minds into Stryfeıs to convince him to leave Cableıs body.

Wyman Inks: Jason Gorder Letters: Chris Eliopoulos Colors: Marie Javins Editor: Bob Harras Editor-in-Chief: Tom DeFalco Synopsis: Cable goes to Muir to meet Rachel, his half-sister from another future. She convinces him to go to Scott and Jeanıs wedding; that there is hope for the future. In Londonıs sewers, the Acolytes find the dead and dying: victims of Omega Red. Katu yells out to the villain who killed his family, and he attacks. But when Milan offers to free him from his death spore virus (which forces him to feed on other peopleıs life forces), he stops and listens. Moira is enjoying her new resident heroes, sending Kitty and Rachel to help WHO, while running tests on Cable (they are old friends, too). She sees now that his metal parts are t-o (alive) rather than bionic. There is an intruder while Cable is still being tested, so Moira grabs a very big gun. But Omega Red renders her unconscious with his virus, then beats on Cable. He is about to steal a virus-curing doohickey, when Cable attacks again. Then Omega Red turns on Moiraıs cybernetic dampener, which puts Cable down. As Cable wakes he sees Mother Askani, telling him to go home and save his people. Then Rachel is standing above him; she and Cable are linked. Kitty says Omega Red needs to gather a few more items to cure himself, but that will release the virus into the air. Cable says he will take care of it; then the Acolytes show up, wanting to help.

The Acolytes and Cable arrive, quickly overcome the guards, and realize that Omega Red is already gone. His next step will be attacking Magnetoıs arctic base, to get to Avalon, since his cure can only be administered in space. Katu tells his story: he was an Inuit fisherman whose village was massacred by Russian soldiers and Omega Red, because his mutant ability was scrambling their satellite transmissions. Cable and the Acolytes break into the arctic base, only to find Omega Red already there and defeated. Cable realizes it is a setup: the Acolytes have captured him to get him to fix Avalon.

He realizes the whole base is techno-organic, and he can control it mentally. He starts picking off the Acolytes one by one, until felled by Cargill and a Kleinstock. Omega Red is planning to release his virus and kill all humanity; the Acolytes want to escape to Avalon; Amelia mists away with Cable to stop Omega Red. Colossus fights Cable, saying Xavierıs dream is a farce. Cable says heıs just hiding in his metal shell because his sister died. He uses TK to force him back to human form and knocks him out. Omega Red bests Amelia and Cable, but then Katu grabs him. He wants to port with him into space, but Cable overrides the command, so Katu turns his power inward, imploding them both.

Cable rescues her before she drowns (he intercepted a distress signal she sent to the X-Men). Senyaka wants to kill her because she was briefly Magentoıs girlfriend (Uncanny 148ff), and Magneto tried to kill him (Uncanny 304). Cable is about to kill him, when he lashes out with psionic energy and fells him. Senyaka is about to kill him, when Forrester lashes out with a log and fells him. Cable and Forrester trudge through the Everglades, communications down, and compare impressions of Magneto.

They come across Desmondıs cabin and set a spell. He knows their names and histories, and makes Cable remember his worst memories, bringing him to his knees. Forrester doesnıt know whatıs going on, so she just puts Cable in bed to rest. She sees the men closest to her: her father (DıSpayre caused his suicide in Uncanny 144), Cyclops, and Magneto. Cable wakes and sees the women closest to him: Jenskot, Redd, Jean, Rachel, and Mother Askani. Cable then turns into Stryfe, and X-Force lies dead at his feet.

They find themselves at the Nexus of All Realities, which Belasco says has been growing, spoiling his delicate balance. He recounts Limboıs history: he ruled it, stole Illyana, who overthrew him and gave it to Sıym, who used NıAstirh to steal powerful babies (including Cable) to sacrifice, to make a portal to earth. Sıym beat Illyana, NıAstirh beat Sıym, Illyana tossed the Soulsword back into Limbo to close the portal, and reverted to a young girl. Madelyn and NıAstirh tried to reopen the portal, but she killed herself fighting the X-Men (see the Inferno Crossover, 1988-89). In Camp Verde, Sam and Theresa try to track Cable, but he is not in this continuum. Belasco uses Forrester as a hostage to get Cableıs help. Sıym appears, quickly disposes of Belasco, and plans to sacrifice Cable to reopen access to earth. Cable, with Forrester providing distraction, beats Sıym, putting a stake through his heart via TK.

Thornn tries to save Sarah, but she is swept out of her grasp by the water. Cable goes on a date with Domino (the real one, not Vanessa ³Copycat² Carslyle). Thornn interrupts, claiming the Morlocks are alive, so they all climb into the sewers. She gets them to perform the ³Ceremony of Light,² whereby sunlight is brought into the tunnels. Sarah appears, but says the others are too frightened to come over. Cable and Domino leave Thornn down there, waiting, and go hand-in-hand to catch a chili dog.
