Cable (Nathan Christopher Charles Summers) is the son of Scott Summers (Cyclops) and Madelyne Pryor, and was born in the present, but was sent into a distant future where he was raised. Cable was born with telepathic and telekinetic abilities. Originally both were limited by his need to restrain his techno-organic infection and his powers were negligible compared to his more traditional fighting skills. However, following the subsidence of the infection they gradually increased to the point where they were similar in magnitude to those of Nate Grey, to whom he is genetically identical. At their height, he demonstrated the ability to simultaneously levitate the floating city of Providence and combat the Silver Surfer.32 Following that story, his powers were burnt out and he replaced both with technological substitutes. Later he states that both his telepathy and telekinesis have faded to nothing. When Professor Xavier’s son Legion travels back in time to kill Magneto in the “Legion Quest” storyline, Beast notes that Cable possesses “latent time-travel abilities”. With the assistance of Shi’ar technology, Professor Xavier “jump-starts” this ability while Jean Grey telekinetically holds Cable’s body together, allowing Cable to send his consciousness into the past. During Messiah War, during the fight with his clone, Stryfe, Cable demonstrates the ability to hide others from Stryfe’s mental view, implying that at least he retains some of his telepathic powers. He also still possesses some of his telekinesis, but he is using it solely to keep the techno-organic virus in his body at bay. His techno-organic body parts possess enhanced strength and durability, and his techno-organic left eye gives him enhanced eyesight, allowing him to see farther than a normal human and in the infrared spectrum. He is also able to interface his techno-organic body parts with machinery, using them to hack into computers, open electronic locks, and travel through time. As of the end of Avengers: X-Sanction, Cable has apparently been fully cured of the techno-organic virus by the Phoenix Force (via Hope Summers), and appears to at least have his telepathy.
