ORIGIN STORY

Cable is Scott Summers and Jean Grey’s mutant son. Geneticist Mr. Sinister conceived of Cable by the realization that the child of Scott Summers and Jean Grey would be a powerful mutant. His goal was to create a powerful mutant he could control in order to defeat the immortal mutant.

Cable was born from the union between Scott Summers and Madelyne Pryor. Madelyne Pryor was a clone of Jean Grey. She was given life from a spark of the Phoenix Force that granted her a life force and Jean Grey’s memories as Jean Grey laid in a cocoon in Jamaica Bay recovering from radiation poison.

Mr. Sinister fabricated Madelyne’s past and arranged for Scott Summers to meet her. Scott immediately fell in love with her and the two had a child. They named him Nathan Christopher Charles Summers.
