Comic fans know that historically where you find Deadpool, it wonít be too long before Cable turns up. This is partly because Deadpool was introduced in X-Force, a book that Cable was leading at the time, and partly because they play so well off of each other. So itís predictable that High Noon have announced that Scott Summerís little boy will be appearing in their upcoming game.
Those readers who arenít comic fans are probably staring at the picture of an old man with half a robot face and wondering how he can be the child of Cyclops. Well prepare yourself for one of the most convoluted back stories known to comics.
Nathan Summers was born to Scott Summers and Madeline Pryor, a clone of Jean Grey that everyone but Cyclops realised. X-Villain Apocalypse infected baby Nathan with a techno-organic virus that would k!ll him. Mother Askani (actually a version of his step sister Rachel who will never actually exist) came from the future and offered to save Nathan by taking her with him. In said future Nathan was trained to f!ght the oppressive reign of Apocalypse, and learned to love really big guns. Realising it was a war he couldnít win he traveled back in time to f!ght Apocalypse before he got powerful. Shunned by the X-Men for loving guns, Cable set up his own team, X-Force, who didnít have so much of a problem with k!lling. Deadpool was hired to k!ll him, but somehow they became reluctant best friends.
And thatís missing out some great details like he was brought up by Scott and Jean inhabiting different bodies in the future, and the evil clone of him that wasnít infected with the T-O virus.
Domino, another character from X-Force, will also be appearing. She likes guns too, and has some handy luck powers.
