After his battles against Post, the Hulk and Onslaught, Cable’s techno-organic virus has gotten out of control and is running amok over his entire body. With only minutes left to live, Cable’s body is brought to the half destroyed Baxter Building, where is being treated by Dr. Nathaniel Richards. The “operation” is being watched over by Cable’s closest friends: Domino, Storm, Cannonball, Caliban and Franklin Richards, the boy whose life he saved from the Onslaught menace. However, when Dr. Richards soon runs out of options and fears he can’t do anything to help his patient, Storm and Cannonball each talk to Cable, hoping that with hearing their voices Cable will recover. While hearing them, the unconscious Cable thinks he’s actually talking to his deceased wife and son, Aliya and Tyler. He sees Tyler standing on the hill of Kentucky where he buried him. As they have a talk and patch things up, Tyler tells Cable to keep on fighting so they’ll always have a tomorrow. Cable next travels to the Ebonshire forest, a place in the future where he first encountered the teachings of the Askani, and where he first met Jenskot. They too share a talk, and Aliya promises Nathan she and Tyler will never leave his heart. Aliya also wants Cable to open up his heart to those who want to help him, like he once did with her. Tyler and Aliya meet up with each other and disappear into a bright light. These talks are enough to give Cable the strength he needed to survive, and the techno-virus retreats from his body and Nathan returns back to normal. He wakes up, and thanks his friends and Franklin for all their help.
