and they wander off peacefully.
	Moira takes Cable to Muir and runs tests. Her really big sensor drives
Cableıs t-o arm wild and then explodes. Cable telekinetically saves her from
falling equipment, then telepathically learns English from her (so why doesnıt he

one-time friend.

	Cable fights his way through OZT soldiers into Xavierıs mansion. Overwhelmed,
he explodes himself, making them think heıs dead, but it doesnıt fool Bastion.
	Flashback: Bridge informs him that someone in the Hellfire Club was after
him, and he is not surprised. The TV informs him of OZTıs attack on the X-Men
(X-Men 65). Bridge says thereıs suspicious Federal activity at some school in
Westchester.
	Cable wanted to protect the mansion and its files. He remembers helping
Xavier build the complex with advanced technology, evidently before the school
opened. Xavier acclimated him to this century.
	In the mansion, Cable goes to free the ailing Caliban. They are pinned down

Synopsis: 	Note: this is part of the Zero Tolerance crossover.
	Cable and Caliban fight OZT soldiers in the mansion. Cable has Caliban
trigger giant, spiked balls from the Danger Room, and in the confusion, they
escape to the Morlock access tunnel beneath the mansion. Cable sends Caliban off,
since he is still ill (see X-Force 65-66), and goes back to retrieve Xavierıs
computer files. He seals the tunnel with an explosion, then one by one takes out
the soldiers guarding the computer. He sees that Bastion has had time to download
the Cerebro files, but the security systems encrypted the rest into Shiıar:
Mutant Underground, Danger Room, Xavier Protocols. Cable loads them onto disk and
destroys the computer. He realizes that Bastion could already have sent people
after his family, and, with considerable strain, telepathically asks a reluctant
Nate Grey to protect the rest of the Grey family (see X-Man 30).
	He has been too slow: Bastion catches him in the computer room before he can
escape. He has his men blow down the door, but then enters alone, addresses Cable
by his real name, and says they must talk.

	Bastion confronts Cable alone and says he has downloaded the Cerebro files,

men to kill everyone on the list, if Cable kills him. He also knows Cableıs
personal history.
	OZT soldiers burst into the room and start shooting, so Cable uses TK to
bring down the ceiling, and tackles Bastion as he flees. Bastion notes that Cable
now has no escape route; Cable note that he cannot read Bastionıs mind.
	Cable takes Bastion hostage, walks through the soldiers, and overrides their
psi-shielded armor and makes them forget everything at Salem Center. As Cable
passes out, Bastion picks up his gun and tries to shoot him in the back, but
there are no more bullets.

the mansion. SHIELD will care for the OZT soldiers; Sen. Kelly is trying to get

	Cable easily breaks into the mansion and its computer, and he starts to
interrogate Taft about the Tomorrow Agenda. He is interrupted by the mercenary
Paladin, but has enough firepower to quickly overcome him and the rest of the

psi-scanning him. He learns that Pierce has information from the future and plans
to find Apocalypse in Switzerland and harness his power. Cable plans to stop
them.
