X-Force: Covert / Ranged / Tech
From the moment he was born, Cable’s life has not been easy. The circumstances of his birth were orchestrated by a mad geneticist named Mister Sinister who had created Cable’s mother, Madelyne Pryor, a clone of Jean Grey. Sinister then had Pryor seduce Cyclops (Scott Summers) in order to conceive a child that he believed would be a phenomenally powerful mutant. Once born, Nathan Summers was the target of a plot to open a portal between Earthand the demon-infested dimension limbo. This was thwarted by members of X-Factor and the X-Men (such as the real Jean Grey who was presumed dead), but left his mother dead.
