Together with Blaquesmith and Irene, Cable tries to discover a way to regain his lost telepathic powers. However, no such luck. Blaquesmith reveals there is still a small portion of Cable’s powers left in his brain functions, though he no longer has the ability to use it. But there exists a weapon that Cable was always meant to have, but never got the chance to wield. And that weapon is located in a monastery in Greece. Still in pain from the telepathic blast he received when he lost his powers, Cable realizes it’s not a good idea to travel alone so he takes Irene with him. They travel to Greece, where they find the monastery on a lone hill. Once inside, Cable is attacked by ninja-like monks, but they quickly change their minds when they realize Cable is their “Chosen One.” The monks reveal that they are former disciplines of Ch’vayre who were first located in the Swiss Alps but later after their mentor was apparently killed, they followed his instructions to relocate here and burned their down old base. Cable doesn’t give it much thought and just grabs the weapon he came for: the psimitar lance, which will help him focus his psi-powers when needed. He tells the monks, who are named the Order of the Askani, to stop worshiping him and go live their own lives. The monks agree, except one: Caesar, who is furious at Cable for ruining his life, and swears revenge. While Cable and Irene return back home, other events are set in motion at the SHIELD Helicarrier. Agent Jasper Sitwell gives other secret agents, including Clay Quartermain, a presentation about their upcoming target: Cable. They want to bring Cable down, to use his techno-organic virus believing it will mean an unlimited source for their own weapons. And to capture Cable, they shall use a secret weapon: Agent 18.
