Cables backstory is nearly indecipherable to casual fans, and it all starts with him being Cyclop's son from a possible future that comes back to the present to prevent the future hes from. Though he possesses telekinetic and telepathic powers, they are almost always committed to containing the techno-organic virus that has turned an eye, arm and leg into robotic accessories. He makes up for that with his love of guns and explosives, including his extremely cheap air grenade. Most famous as leader of the X-Force, and was instrumental in ending Apocalypse's plans for controlling the world. These days Cable is often seen with the mutant mercenary, Deadpool.
