The fan favorite X-Man Cable is making his way back to the forefront of the Marvel universe with a brand new series, and Marvel has revealed the first look at the upcoming debut.
In the new Cable ongoing series, the character will return to his time traveling roots. This though it's not just related to his parents, Apocalypse, or the X-Men. No, this time around he's responsible for keeping the entire Marvel Universe afloat, and he's got quite a journey ahead of him to accomplish that tall goal. As you can see in the preview (featured in the gallery) Cable will be heading to all sorts of places, including saloons in 1874 and beyond.
Writer James Robinson recently spoke to Newsarama about how much traveling Cable will do in the series, and what eras fans can expect to see. "One of the things about Cable is he's a 'time warrior.' Time travel is part of his make-up in almost every aspect of his history - no pun intended," said Robinson. "This series will be Cable on a race against time to fix time. The reason Cable must take on this quest will reveal itself as the story and mystery unfolds, but he's doing it for the sake of the Marvel Universe, which will fall apart if he doesn't take action. And in the course of Cable's mission, we'll see him in a lot of great time periods like 15th century Japan, WWI, the Stone Age, Victorian England, and on and on, all with those time periods made more crazy and sci-fi by time being fractured by the villain of our series."
You can view the first look preview in the gallery, and the official description and release are included below.
WALK SOFTLY...AND CARRY A BIG GUN! CABLE sees the mighty mutant return on a brand-new mission…with all of time in the balance! When Cable picks up the trail of a threat in the timestream, he sets off on a high-speed, history-spanning chase to save reality as we know it. From prehistory to modern day, whether it's a six-gun duel at high noon or a high-tech sword fight in an ancient land, Cable is the only man who can keep history from unraveling!
