Cable is back with Baby on Board.
A new ongoing series spinning out of the decade’s biggest X-Men event! The future of mutantkind starts here!
“Messiah CompleX” changed the X-Men forever. But no one’s world has been rocked as hard as Cable, the time-traveling mutant from the future. He’s been charged with the one mission that could save all of mutantkind -- or, if he fails, Spin it swirling into extinction. And hot on his trail is a relentless enemy who won’t stop until blood is spilled. No matter where…or when…Cable runs. Brought to you by the dynamic team of Duane Swierczysnki (MOON KNIGHT ANNUAL) and Ariel Olivetti (PUNISHER WAR JOURNAL).
Don't miss "Cable # 1"
In New Jersey in the year 2043 A.D. Cable stands facing the New York City. He comes across a masked man carrying a gun asking for a toll. He tells him that nothing is free in Jersey. As he makes conversation, he notices two other armed men nearby watching them. He gathers by the amount of weaponry they have that they must be amateurs. He offers his knife as payment, The real intention was to be a distraction. He takes out the first man and tries using him as a shield but gets clipped by a sniper. He takes him out and the third man. He notes that things were too close and checks on the baby he's carrying on his chest. She looks up at him and is doing fine, except she needs a diaper change.
Cable and the baby have been traveling for five months. They've made their way from Scotland to here. He thinks how the baby cries a lot now and how she didn't so much in the beginning. He thinks back to when he liberated her from the hospital and fought against everyone to "save" her. He knows the baby will be the one to save them all someday. Until that day comes, he has vowed to watch over her.
The two of them go out to find something to eat. He covers her up as he approaches an old diner. Inside, someone is wearing a watch with an X symbol on it. The person thinks that the time is approaching and he won't hesitate this time. He pulls out a gun and aims it at the door just as Cable walks in. Cable sees the gun too late. He turns to protect the baby and gets hit. The shot sends him flying through the window. As he lies on the ground, the man that shot him is announces to everyone that his name is Lucas Bishop and he is a cop. Looks like he got himself a new metallic arm, just like Cable.
