Exodusís defeat leaves Nate Grey with the problem of dealing with Cable, who has been on his trail for some time. Blaquesmith is adamant that Nate should be destroyed, lest he interferes with Cableís main mission in this time, namely the destruction of Apocalypse. Cable, however, is reluctant to bring harm to Nate, wishing him for an ally rather than an enemy. He understands that Nate has been running all his life from people bent on using him, and he wants to reach out and help him, using the experiences gained from years of struggle. Blaquesmith tries taking things into his own hands, but Nate throws enough energy at him that Blaquesmith is forced to retreat. He tells Cable that there is a failsafe for one such as Nate, but Cable understands that he actually means the failsafe was meant for him. The battle between Nate and Blaquesmith causes ructions across the globe, Psiís such as Charles Xavier, Jean Grey and Psylocke all feel the effects of the enormous amounts of psionic energy being produced in Switzerland. Cable tries his best to talk sense into Nate, but the youngster isnít listening and they battle, using both their mental and physical strengths. Eventually, Nate is pushed beyond his capabilities and falls to the ground. Blaquesmith reappears and tells Cable to finish him, but Cable insists he is going to help the boy and Blaquesmith will have to kill them both if he wants Nate dead. Cable enters Nateís mind and finds it in tatters. He utilizes all his skills, and every ounce of psionic power and more, and finds that. deep within Nateís mind, he is willing to finally accept Cableís help. Soon, Cable announces that Nate will recover, but he himself finds himself under renewed attack from his own techno-organic virus. Blaquesmith takes him away and allows him to recover aboard his craft, but Domino contacts Cable and informs him that X-Force is in trouble and needs his help. Meanwhile, Onslaught was hoping for a more conclusive outcome to this battle, and calls on Post to find Cable and deal with him. He has plans of his own for Nate Grey.
