Added DiffLines:

* SoOkayItsAverage: The latest Cable solo series (2017) seems to be designed to fall here. Each story arc is handed to a new creative team, resulting in a dramatically different take on the character. If you dislike an arc, that's great, because Cable will be different in six months. If you love an arc, though, you know that presentation of Cable has a limited lifespan.

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Cable used to be considered the embodiment of everything wrong with the 90s. He was a "mysterious past" character whose power seemed to consist of looking cool and having big guns. Since that time, he's been fleshed out as a shell-shocked soldier fighting an eternal war against a seemingly immortal foe and trying to live up to his MessianicArchetypeRole without falling too deep into KnightTemplar territory.

* ItWasHisSled: Cable was revealed as the son of Scott Summers and Jean Grey a whole three years after he was introduced. Now, his true identity is one of his defining traits, as evidenced by the introduction on the main page.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/2012/10/05/comic-book-legends-revealed-387/ According to the first entry]] Cable was supposed to an older, time-displaced version of fellow X-Forcer Cannonball.

* MyRealDaddy: Despite being a creation of RobLiefeld, many believe that FabianNicieza was the one to honestly define Cable as a character.

* ExecutiveMeddling: Cable was *not* originally meant to turn out to be Cyclops' son; that was a {{retcon}} done to tie in some loose plot ends.

Added DiffLines:

* ThrowItIn: Rob Liefeld was trying to come up with a big reveal for the villain Stryfe's identity when a friend suggested that Stryfe should remove his helmet to reveal... Cable's face. Thus Stryfe became Cable's clone, and the whole Summers Family got even ''more complex''.

* HoYay: Cable and {{Deadpool}}. In Cable's case, he seemed entirely unaware of Deadpool's man-crush.

** Either that, or he prefers to just ignore it.
** [[http://media.photobucket.com/image/cable%20deadpool%20iron%20fist%20luke%20cage/ursula_boi/mambadeadpool2.jpg Hardly seems that he doesn't know... And Wade wasn't the only person contributing subtext and innuendo to that series. Cable helped.]]
*** He doesn't freak out when Deadpool asks if they're "gonna have to kiss" or when he calls their falling-out a "divorce", but he might just consider that Deadpool being... [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Deadpool.]]
** "Bodyslide by two." That is all.
