FAN CAST: Cable (Part One) by JoshW
Here are my choices, featuring over 25 characters, for who I’d like to see star in a solo movie based on Cable following his early years, his time with the Six Pack, New Mutants and his battles against Apocalypse, Stryfe and the Mutant Liberation Front!
Cable, born Christopher Charles Summers, is the son of Scott Summers and Madelyne Pryor, who was a clone of Jean Grey. Madelyne was created by Mr. Sinister in the hope that she would seduce Scott and together they would create a powerful offspring. It was Sinister's plan to use the child as an ultimate weapon against his former master, the eternal mutant, Apocalypse.
Apocalypse, apparently having learned of Sinister's plan at some point, abducted baby Nathan and infected him with a deadly techno-organic virus. A member of the Clan Askani, a sisterhood in the future that fought against Apocalypse, appeared and told Cyclops that Nathan would die from the T-O virus unless she brought him 2000 years into the future. Cyclops had no choice but to agree and sent his son to the future.
Mother Askani, a time-displaced Rachel Summers, later pulled the minds of Scott and Jean into the future where, as “Slym” and "Redd", they raised Cable for twelve years. During their time together, the "family" prevented Apocalypse from transferring his essence into a new body, ending his reign of terror.

Michael Fassbender as Mister Sinister

When Stryfe travels to the present, Cable follows him with the aim of stopping Stryfe's plans as well as preventing Apocalypse's rise to power. Cable forms a group initially called the Wild Pack, but conflict with Silver Sable (who already had a group called the Wild Pack) forces him to change the name to the Six Pack.

The team first appeared in New Mutants #87 (the same time as Cable, they both had a cameo on the last page of #86).
