Cable

 CABL   (Marvel, 1993-2002)

™ and ©1993 Marvel Entertainment Group

He first was seen in our timeline in The New Mutants #87, but although he has had remarkable influence on the various mutant teams in the Marvel Universe, we have only recently begun to discover much about him. We now know that the man known as Cable has another name, Nathan Dayspring, and that he hails from a dark, totalitarian version of our world, centuries in the future. Thanks to the technology of that period, he has the ability to transport himself back in time. He uses that ability to wage a war in time and space, with the ultimate goal of preventing that dark future from occurring.

An immensely popular character since he first appeared, Cable was featured in the two-issue Cable: Blood and Metal then in 1993 was given this, his first ongoing series. In it we finally learn many of the answers to the questions readers have been asking about this mysterious warrior.
