Cable by MattMoylan Cable by MattMoylan
Needed a break from work so I drew up this quickie of Nathan Dayspring Christopher Summers. AKA the Askani'son, AKA Cable! Also the coolest of the 4 kids Cyclops and Jean Grey have running aroudn themarvel universe (despite Jean never being pregnant, figure that one out)

I used my fav costume for him from back when Cable was still bad-ass, not the baby-carrying Deadpool sidekick he's been in recent years ;)

I love when he used to wear this costume, an homage to what his father wore, Cable is the best! I used to play an mmorpg called 'City of Heroes' and made a character that looks just like him with an alternate costume just like this, even had psychic powers and an assault rifle hehe...hmm I should start playing him again..

While looking at random articles about Rob Liefeld, I kinda learned that he was behind Cable AND Deadpool.

Never read the comics...I probably only know of Cable from the cartoon or Marvel vs. Capcom 2.

Heh well, I guess you weren't an X-men fan ;) Pretty basic fact about Cable that Cyclops is his dad. Hence images like this one: [link]

Actually there was a tiny hint about Cable's past (or future..time travel..bleh) in the 90s X-men TAS, when Jean Grey probed his mind just before he 'teleported' with Wolverine as his hostage.

I'm an X-Men fan and I don't know who he is. He looks cool though.

Really? he's been around 20 years, has had his own comic series several times, and been a member of the X-men on several occasions. Though he is most often remembered as the leader of the original X-Force.

I remember Cable from the animated series, he was pretty kicking. I still have a hard time realizing him as the son of Cyclopes.

What?! I'm not undressing him! What I actually find hot about him is how is hair came out (for some reason I've loved that hairstyle since I was a kid) and the guns (I'm a Southern woman, I <3 my guns).

Also... how can Cable be her son when... uh... didn't Cable's story happen like 1000 years after Bishop's story? O_o??

It's like this: Cable is the son of Cyclops and Madelyne Prior(Maddy is a clone of Jean Grey). When he was just a baby, Cable was infected with a techno-organic virus (hence his metal arm). A cure could not be found, so they decided to send him 1000 years into the future to be raised by the Askani, whoc were able to teach him to control the virus using his telekinetic powers. He eventually came back from the future as an adult, which is why he is so much older than Cyclops. Simple yes? ;)

Oh, yeah... I guess that also explains why he appears in one season like he was living in the present time O.o (forgot what part... I think it was on one of those episodes where there's this place where there are some necklaces that supress mutant powers and stuff... :confused: ) BTW how could they send him to the future when the time travel technology appeared first when Bishop was around and everyone was dead already? O.o?

Are you counting Stryfe as the 4th instance of Cyke's and Jean's DNA doing the chromosomal lambada?

Great work as always, Matt!

I'm one of the biggest Cyclops fans out there....

...yet, I can only think of 3 Scott/Jean children.

-Cable
-Rachel Summers/Grey
-Nate Grey
-???

The fact that it isn't coming to mind is probably due to the 3am timeframe I'm working in, but it would still be much appreciated if you could fill in the blank.

Thanks!

(PS. Letting loose on the Lil'Formers Transformer limitation has lead to some laugh out loud...uh, larks. So, KUDOS TO YOU SIR!)

Ahh yes...the clone. The red-headed step-brother equivalent for the Summers siblings.

But, being a clone, does he really count? Cuz if he didn't, that would explain all the paternal angst he displayed in the X-cutioner's Song saga.
