The Nemesis Contract

Despite the pain his techno-organic virus is giving him, Cable keeps continuing training himself with his Psimitar lance. Blaquesmith and Irene can only watch and give some advice. He later leaves to have a cup of coffee at the Babel’s diner. There, Nathan meets Stacey’s younger brother Kenny and talks about him. Meanwhile in Africa, Jack Truman is ordered by SHIELD to take Cable down. After reading some background information on Nathan, Truman accepts the job. He first meets up with G.W. Bridge in Switzerland, who dislikes the idea of Truman going after his friend. He returns to SHIELD where Nick Fury transfers Bridge to the Washington Bureau to be his eyes and ears there, despite the fact Bridge dislikes it. Truman’s hunt continues and the more he reads about him, the more he sees Nathan as a hero than a mutant terrorist, as his dossier calls him. But a job is a job, and Truman travels to Hell’s Kitchen where Cable was last seen. He sets up shop in an abandoned junkyard SHIELD recently acquired. There, using some machines and some good thinking, Truman revives the creature known as Zzzax to lure Cable out of hiding. It works and Zzzax goes out on a rampage, attacking the poor people at the neighborhood. Cable hears about this on the news and goes to check it out, though has no time to get his Psimitar first. A second disaster emerges when Nathan’s techno-organic virus gets out of control during the fight. Cable manages to lure Zzzax to the junkyard, where he rips some water pipes apart and throws them at the creature until it shorts itself out. After this victory, Cable does his best to keep the virus in check, but then Truman appears behind Cable, and he is ready for a battle.
