Warning: SPOILERS for Deadpool 2 are ahead!

While Wade Wilson was still the star of the show in Deadpool 2, the sequel introduced an X-Men character that comic book fans have been waiting a long time to see in a cinematic setting: Cable. Played by Josh Brolin, Cable was initially the movie's main antagonist, but by the end of the movie, he was working with the other protagonists, and now he has a bright future ahead of him. Brolin signed a four-picture deal for the Cable role, and it sounds like the next time we'll see him is in X-Force.

Since more Cable in the X-Men film franchise is guaranteed, this allows for even more of his history from the comics to be explored. Obviously it's impossible to cover the breadth of everything he's done on the printed page over nearly three decades, but here are some Cable-related developments and plot points we want to see adapted at some point.

His Connection To Cyclops

Even by comic book standards, Cable has one of the most convoluted backstories ever. To summarize as succinctly as possible, Cable was born Nathan Summers, his father being Scott Summers, a.k.a. Cyclops, and Madelyne Pryor, a clone of Jean Grey. His birth was arranged by longtime X-Men foe Mister Sinister for his nefarious schemes, and soon after being born, he was kidnapped by Apocalypse (more on that later) and eventually taken to the future. Superhero movies often have to take creative liberties, and in Cable's case, there's no way his origins could be fully adapted for the big screen, let alone in a movie where he's not the primary character. That being said, it would be nice if Josh Brolin's Cable had some kind of connection to Cyclops. Maybe Cyclops and Jean Grey had a baby together, and like his comic book counterpart, the infant Nathan was sent to the future. Or maybe Cable is the grandson or great-grandson of Cyclops. Either way, establish a direct or indirect relationship between the two mutants.
