* 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.

* 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.

* 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.

* 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''.

** 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.
