The Hellfire Hunt
Letters Column: Cable Grams
As Irene Merryweather remains at Wilhelm Lohmer’s home, Cable is about to enter into yet another major conflict. Hellfire Club soldiers battle the automated defenses that Apocalypse has surrounding his lair. Cable manages to get through them and into the lair through a long tunnel. Inside, Sebastian Shaw, Donald Pierce and Ch’vayre manage to breach the interior, and Shaw is amazed at what he finds. Apocalypse isn’t present, and the technology within is theirs for the taking. Cable soon joins them, and Pierce immediately attacks, though he comes off worse during the confrontation. As they fight, Shaw places Ch’vayre inside one of Apocalypse’s hibernation cocoons, trapping him. Cable manages to put Pierce down, destroying his hand once again. With the cyborg out for the count, Cable then goads Shaw, but as they trade threats the lair begins to crumble. Masonry crashes to the ground as the whole place shakes. Shaw makes a run for the exit, followed by Cable and then Pierce. Outside in the snow, Pierce is easily stopped once more by Cable, but before he can get his hands on Sebastian Shaw, the Black King reminds him that he has left someone inside. Cable dashes back inside as Shaw makes his escape, dropping Pierce from his chopper as he does. Inside the lair, Cable finds Ch’vayre trapped inside the cocoon. He contacts the stranger telepathically, but doesn’t receive any answers to the many questions he has before the lair becomes too unsafe to remain. Cable finds an exit and leaves, as the whole complex explodes. Cable falls to Earth, protected by his telekinesis, whilst in Egypt, Apocalypse senses his actions. The time is right for him to begin his latest machinations. He frees Ozymandias from his servitude, but tells Caliban he will be needed when the time comes. The world is changed forever from this day forth.
