About Cable

Cable, whose real name is Nathan Summers has an extremely complicated backstory involving time travel. However, the main thing is he is the son of X-Men members Cyclops and Madelyne Prior (who is Jean Grey’s clone). He is a soldier who has the ability to travel through time, and he attempts to use this ability for his own needs in Deadpool 2. In a possible future, his wife and daughter are killed by a mutant named Russell Collins, so he travels back to when Russell is just a boy with a plan to murder him.

Deadpool wants to stop him, but when a confused and very powerful Russell joins forces with the even more powerful Juggernaut, Cable and Deadpool must join forces. Even so, Cable attempts to kill Russell, despite Deadpool’s protests that the boy can be saved from becoming a murderer. Deadpool takes the bullet meant for Russell, forcing the boy to swear off criminal activity forever, and Cable responds by going back in time to stop himself from shooting Deadpool.
