- Executive Meddling: Cable was *not* originally meant to turn out to be Cyclops' son; that was a retcon done to tie in some loose plot ends.
- What Could Have Been:
- In early X-Force issues, it was strongly implied that Cable was an older version of Cannonball, as confirmed by Rob Liefeld.
- Before Marvel formally revealed that Cable was Nathan Summers, Fabian Niceza proposed a twist - Stryfe would be Nathan and Cable would be his clone instead of the other way around. Nate actually thought this might have been the case for a time.
- There were discussions about including Cable in X-Men: Days of Future Past, but they never went anywhere.
