Story Arc(s):    Add/remove story arcs to this issue

Cable tries to figure out the mystery that is Nate Grey, but that is easier said than done. He decides to enlist the aid of the X-Men and Moira MacTaggert on this enigma, and an old ally as well. His team, X-Force, is training together with Domino when an immense aircraft lands in the mansion’s yard, piloted by Blaquesmith. Domino is less than pleased to see him again, so he wipes her and X-Force’s minds of seeing him today. To his surprise, Sunspot is not only unaffected, but impossibly begins speaking the Askani language. Cable dismisses Blaquesmith’s inquiries, simply saying that today’s business isn’t about Roberto DaCosta. He uses his telepathic powers to turn the boy back to normal, wipes his mind and makes him resume his training with the others. They then move inside the mansion where they join with Scott, Jean, Xavier, Storm and Moira, their meeting already in progress. Speaking to their subject, the enigmatic Nate Grey, Moira explains how she met him a while ago and thinks the boy’s power levels are close to those of the Dark Phoenix. The six continue their conversation, but quickly reach an impasse, due to lack of information. As such, Blaquesmith sees no other choice: he wipes the X-Men’s and Moira’s minds! Cable is upset at Blaquesmith for doing this to the people who trust him, but Blaquesmith doesn’t want so many people knowing about his existence. Cable now also realizes it was Nate Grey Blaquesmith was tracking on his maps of Europe on his ship, and wants to know why he kept it from him. Blaquesmith doesn’t answer, so Cable decides to go after Nate alone. He takes out a few weapons from the mansion’s hangar, and wants Blaquesmith to promise that if he doesn’t come out of this alive, he’ll tell the X-Men about what he did to them today. Blaquesmith reluctantly agrees to do it, and wishes his old friend a good journey. Cable leaves in a ship, ready to confront… the X-Man!
