Cable coming back from the dead is seriously too soon. Leave him dead for a bit!
Off My Mind: How Will Cable be REBORN?
Here's some possibilities.
1) Magneto further redeems himself by going into deep meditation on top of a mountain and reassembling Cable based on the techno-organic properties of his severed arm.
2) Cable's mind takes over Stryfe's body shortly the severed arm incident. Maybe Stryfe just happens to be in the area code.
3) Cable's mind found an empty body to reside in. They've hinted at stuff like this at the end of X3 movie where Prof-X wakes up in another body which has been in a coma.
4) Age of Apocalypse Jean and Wolverine do it the old fashion style and in pops Cable's mind from the astral plane :P
I’m not happy about this for two reasons. One is, yeah, too soon. The way he sacrificed himself during Second Coming was amazing. I love heroic deaths like that. Cheesy or poorly written, like Nightcrawler’s, not so much. The other reason I’m not happy: Jeph Loeb. I used to love his stories, but now I can’t stand them. He ruined the Ultimate universe, had a crappy start with the whole Red Hulk stuff, and now he’s going to twist the mutants into nonsense. I bet the series will be delayed and not make a lot of sense, even though Loeb will claim it’s a mystery with clues all over the place since the beginning (something he spouted in interviews while writing Hulk). I love Cable and although it would be great to see him back in the thick of things, I’m okay with how he died and basically fulfilling his ultimate mission.
Maybe X-Man's powers go haywire and threaten to consume the whole Marvel Universe. Then Hope shoves Cable's severed arm up X-Man's @$$ and all is good again... Cable is reborn :)X-man lost almost all his powers in new mutants and basically just has limited TK and possibly they might throw some other low level version of his other powers down the line
So Cable will be reborn, and by looking at the picture, it looks like he'll be raised by Deadpool. That could be interesting
LMAO. thats an old pic from the Cable and Deadpool series, where Cable was briefly transformed into an infant
You know, X-man just came back...what if OUR Cable gets his mind put in X-man's body and he joins the New Mutants again. It would keep with the trend of former New Mutants returning to the team (hello Rahne anybody?) and would be a great twist for him to rejoin as a peer not as an older leader.
The teaser picture with the arm could be just that...a teaser...but who know?
Loeb is responsible for quite a lot of Cable's backstory - and really defined him back in the mid 90s. Hopefully he can recapture his form from then, as he wrote a very good Cable indeed.
Why the hell do they keep letting Loeb ruin my favorite characters!? First Hulk, now Cable? I swear to God if they don't retcon Loeb's lobotomization of the Marvel canon I'm going to firebomb their offices. Two words that should never go together: Hulk Family.
This is way too early to bring back Cable from the dead. It's barely been a year. But still considering Leob has already done Cable in the past, I'm quite interested to see what he will do with him this time round. It's got to be better than the last Cable series. It was just Cable and Hope being chased by Bishop and jumping around different time dimensions for about 20 issues =/
Maybe X-Man's powers go haywire and threaten to consume the whole Marvel Universe. Then Hope shoves Cable's severed arm up X-Man's @$$ and all is good again... Cable is reborn :)While X-man is depowered at the moment and I think the process of him being reborn would be a bit more complicated than the one described above (;p), in the back of my head I have been wondering if they depowered X-man in order to somehow at one point place Cables consciousnesses in his body. Thereby killing X-man and giving Cable life once again.
I don't think the real Cable died in Second Coming. I think that the real Cable has been lost in the past since the X-Force and Cabled limited series and the Cable we've seen ever since was the Cable from the House of M that started out as a baby. His techno-virus was cured as of Cable and Deadpool #12; the T-O was a symbiotic bond. Yet in Cable Vol3 #16 he's overtaken by the virus. That shouldn't be possible. I believe the Cable we've seen began as a baby created by Mr. Sinister during the House of M. Deadpool teleported the baby back to 616 reality (Cable and Deadpool #18) and with the other alternate realities's Cable essences (War, Brother Nathan, and the TO Virus Cable) gave the baby Cable's memories so that that baby actually thought it was Cable. This was the Cable seen for the remainder of Cable and Deadpool, the issues of X-Men leading up to #200 and from Messiah Complex on. But the real Cable is lost somewhere in the timestream and most likely has no idea about Hope. Let's not forget that Cable's knowledge of the future no longer matters since his timeline was erased after the X-Men prevented Apocalypse from ascending during the Twelve storyline.
In all honesty, I'm really just ticked that for the Second Coming story to be told, the writers conveniently forgot everything Fabian Nicieza did to Cable in Cable and Deadpool, i.e. he couldn't have let the Techno-Virus overtake him because he doesn't have the virus anymore (again, see Cable and Deadpool #12). But I would rather take that weak writing and use it to bring Cable back in such a way that it negates everything Swierzinski, Carey, Kyle and Yost did to ret-con Cable so they could tell their story. It'll be like flipping them the proverbial bird.
How exactly is the T-O virus supposed to kill Cable when Apocalypse and Archangel are infected with the same T-O virus. If anything, wouldn't the T-O virus evolve Cable into what Apocalypse wanted him to be? A new body in which Apocalypse can exist? Or in which the Celestials evolutionary plan can continue? With the current Dark Angel storyline going on, it seems to reason that like Archangel, Cable will turn into the new Death and eventually become the new Apocalpyse. I know that there has been multiple plots involving what would happen if the T-O took over his whole body, but given the recent events in Uncanny X-Force maybe the information on the T-O virus should be updated.
I wonder if the Cable returning will not be the same Cable that died in Second Coming but a younger verson of Cable who knows that this time is important but may not know the players involved on a personal level like he did before. I seem to recall in Cables convoluted back story that he had been to the past out past or recent history at several points. Also I wonder will the Avengers have the courtesy and tell Cyclops that his son is alive.
