Origin

Born of Scott Summers (Cyclops) and Madeline Pryor (Goblin Queen I), Nathan Summers was intended to be a superhuman tool by the villainous Mr. Sinister.


As an infant Summers was infected with a deadly techno-organic virus. His father was offered a choice; let his son die or allow him to be taken 2000 years into the future by Askani in hopes of finding a cure. It's in that bleak future that Summers' life began, becoming a soldier, leader and time-traveler.


After living for decades in the future Summers returned to his origin time with the goal of stopping the mega-maniacal Apocalypse. Employing his military expertise, telekinetic powers, and incredible technology Summers fights to prevent the dark future he lived through from ever occurring - as Cable.
