"Cable" #1 on sale March 5

After his surprising role in Messiah CompleX, Cable must now protect the child who will save mutantkind- no matter the cost! In Cable #1, the dynamic creative team of acclaimed novelist Duane Swierczynski (Moon Knight Annual, Punisher: Force Of Nature) and red-hot penciler Ariel Olivetti (Punisher War Journal) reveal just where-and when-Cable has journeyed in the quest to save his people. But just who is on his trail? And why won't they stop till Cable's blood is spilt? An X-Men: Divided We Stand tie-in, Cable #1 reveals the true cost of Messiah CompleX to mutankind and just what this child means for the future! Plus, Cable co-creator Rob Liefeld provides a stunning variant cover to kick off this hotly anticipated ongoing series!

"Cable is a core thread of the second stage of the war that began in Messiah CompleX -- a battle for nothing less than the future of mutantkind," says X-Men Group Editor Axel Alonso. "At the heart of the story: two battle-tested men, driven by deep conviction and prepared to do anything to complete their objective -- including calling on help from old friends. So make no mistake: The war over the future of mutantkind will be fought in the future -- in the pages of Cable-- and when it is finally over, who knows what will return to the present."

Now you can also experience Cable's earliest, action-packed adventures in Cable Classic Vol.1 TPB, collecting the time-travelers earliest adventures and his classic battles with Stryfe! Featuring the X-Men, New Mutants and Warriors Three of Thor, this is a can't-miss for fans of Nathan Christopher Summers!

Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Cable and all Divided We Stand tie-ins, as the buzz around the X-Men titles continues to grow! Now that Cable has escaped with the new mutant child, is there any place-or time-where they'll be safe? And just how does this affect Cyclops, Cable's father, and the rest of the X-Men? Find out beginning in Cable #1!
