IN FOUR SENTENCES

1.his eye 
2.his metal arm 
3.his childhood 
4.how he is the son of cyclops when he was born in the future 
Im a big deadpool fan and to this day, I still don't know cable origin. i've tryed to learn it but i get confused and lose track

Cable is son of Madelyne Pryor and Cyclops sent into the future to cure himself of the TO virus which Apoc. gave to him at birth.  
 
Cable cloned to save the future from rule of Apoc. but Apoc. got there first to claim the clone, Styryfe.
 
Eye, metal arm both due to TO virus.

@Pulsar:
I don't own the goddamn comic book and everytime i read the web for Cables origin, I get confused. 
im not stupid, but i've heard of 6 different Cable origins (not counting Ultimate), and not a single one makes sense! 
people say put cable in the Deadpool movie, but it would take 3 hours to explain it and the audience will go WTF.

  1. Assuming you mean his glowing eye, it is a power signature, as seen in many powerful mutants, including Vulcan, Exodus, Magneto, and others.
  2. His arm is a result of the techno-organic virus Apocalypse infected him with as a child.
  3. He was raised in the future by Scott and Jean after being taken to the future by Mother Askani (Rachel Summers), who also took Scott and Jean's minds and put them in future versions of themselves.
  4. He was not born in the future. He was born in the past, and was sent/taken to the future in order to survive the TO virus Apocalypse infected him with.

LOL. Via time portals and time travel? Also, the future has more advance tech, meaning better ways of curing.

To be honest. I read about his origins in comics and im still confused.

You want confusing, try figuring out Psylocke/Revanche or even better M/M-Twins/Penance.  
 
Basically for Cable: Scott and clone of Jean had a child, Nathan. Nathan was infected with the T-O virus and was taken to the future by Askani to save his life. Scott and Jean went to the future, because of Askani and helped raise him. He ends up coming back to his own time, he was born in 616, now stated because he had to protect Hope. Everything else is filler really.

I want to know how Apoc. got his hands on Cable to give him the To virus. 

#14 Posted by CATMANEXE (17052 posts) - - Show Bio

here's one of his more recent Handbook entries.
not four sentences but it sums up a good chunk about him
without being a novel.

or better yet dont bother as your head asplode. Tom Broovert wrote her last Handbook entry and even he said it makes
close to no sense. lmao. thats been retconned so many times its like she never existed, or if she did it was in an alternate
universe. just as bad as actually trying to figure out the true nature of Daredevils powers.
#15 Posted by bob agent of agency x (207 posts) - - Show Bio

Four new Questions... 
1. how did Apoc. get his hands on Cable 
2. why did Apoc. give him the virus 
3. why is it that everyone has got time portals or future pixie dust that allows them to go to the future then come back 
4. who the hell is Askani(rachel summers), another Summers child who lives in the future and makes no sense at all

#16 Posted by Edamame (28287 posts) - - Show Bio
@bob agent of agency x: 
2. To hurt him and make him less of a threat or to test his strength.  
 
4. Rachel is sister.

I want to know how she brought Cable to the future and why the name Askani

LMAO? 
How come she just doesn't use her """""TIME PORTALS""""" to stop Apoc. from giving the virus to her brother Cable!?
#26 Posted by Edamame (28287 posts) - - Show Bio
@bob agent of agency x: LOL.  You crack me up.
 
Then there would be no plot. And Apocalypse is immortal. He can just come back again and again.
#27 Posted by bob agent of agency x (207 posts) - - Show Bio

No plot? The plot doesn't seem that great to begin with. 
How come she doesn't use her """""TIME PORTALS""""" to go back 5000 years, while Apocalypse was a baby without powers, and kill him?

How would she know exactly where Apoc. was born?

Don't all the X-men know? 
why not do with other villains like Magneto, Mr Sinister, Juggernaut, Mystique, and every other villain the X-men have fought. she could stop Xaiver from become crippled, Wolverine from going threw the Weapon X program, and stop wars.

Because if she did that, it could f**k up the whole timeline and create something disastrous. Like when Legion went back to try and kill Magneto, but ended up killing Xavier and created the Age of Apocalypse. You don't mess around with time travel .
