Letters Column: Cable Grams

A mentor instructs his flock of young disciples regarding their plans and their sect’s savior, Nathan Dayspring Summers. When they ask to hear a story about the Chosen One, the mentor tells them a story which took place in a future they are trying to avoid. Repelled by a cadre of New Canaanite soldiers, Nathan ordered a retreat back to their base. However, when one of their number is pinned down, Nathan decides to rescue him alone, as well as unarmed. His friend, Tetherblood, realizes this is but the latest reckless move on Nathan’s part since Aliya died. Refusing to listen, Nathan confronts the New Canaanite soldiers, trying to bluff them into surrendering, by claiming that his Askani forces have them surrounded. As it happens, Tetherblood and another Askani soldier have done just that and take out the Canaanite forces. However, when the other Askani soldier tries to kill a Canaanite counterpart in cold blood, Nathan stay his hand, saying those methods lead to Apocalypse’s way. In the present, a mirror image situation occurs, with Cable intervening on a mob attempting to beat a youth wearing a “Tolerance” button. As he intervenes, though, the youth reveals himself to be a mutant himself and uses his psychic abilities to kill the mob. However, like in the future, Cable stays his hand explains that vengeance leads to darkness. They must not deny their anger, but can never surrender to hatred. As the mentor explains that the character of Cable from his story (and unknown to him, his actions in the present) are what will lead them to salvation, another person, thousands of miles away, has Cable on her mind as well. It is Jean Grey-Summers, who dreads the fact that she must seek him out, to tell him the shocking news that his mother, Madelyne Pryor-Summers, is back from the dead.
