Trivia / Cable

  • 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.
    • He also almost made it into the first Deadpool movie.
