* HypotheticalCasting: Watching ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' made Rob Liefeld wish on Twitter that Stephen Lang (Col. Quaritch) would play Cable in the ''Film/XMen'' movies. Some of Cable's fans, and even Lang himself, wish the same.

Thanks to the machinations of Mr Sinister, he was born with a destiny--to kill Apocalypse. Not being an idiot, Apocalypse took steps to prevent this at an early stage by infecting Nathan with a special "[[UnwillingRoboticisation techno-organic virus]]" which severely limited his powers and would have killed him if his loving father and, uh, step-mother hadn't sent him 2,000 years into the future to be raised by his [[TangledFamilyTree alternate-universe sort-of-half-sister's]] all-female psychic death cult (it's okay--Scott and Jean spent their honeymoon living in cloned bodies in the future in order to raise little baby Nathan up to be a man).

Cable, or [[OverlyLongName Nathan Christopher Charles Dayspring Askani'son Summers]], is a time-traveling soldier from the future who is here to prevent his [[BadFuture apocalyptic timeline]] from coming to pass. He is biologically the son of Comicbook/{{X-Men}} Madelyne Pryor (a clone of ComicBook/JeanGrey) and Scott Summers, a.k.a. ComicBook/{{Cyclops}}, and the step-son of Jean Grey. As an infant, he first appeared in ''"Uncanny X-Men''" #201 (January, 1986), though it took years for said infant and the time-traveling adult to be revealed as the same individual.

* FutureMeScaresMe: In ''UltimateXMen'', a different version of Cable is revealed to be [[spoiler:Wolverine from the future]], sans an arm. (Which Apocalypse tore off and used to fillet his face.).

Trope misuse. Pillars of Moral Character is about a specific Japanese set of morals, not just about being a good person.
* SociopathicHero: In his original portrayal. Louise Simonson made a personal statement that this was to introduce a "constructive" youth role model teacher counter to Xavier's "whiny" idealism. He was later clarified as trying to prevent the engineering of an apocalyptic warzone... Then Nicieza turned him into a [[PillarsOfMoralCharacter Pillar Of Moral Character]] instead, and nowadays he seems like a much tamer "general non-bloodcrazed soldier" version of the original.

Misuse. It's Genre Savvy, not just "savvy".
