In a new miniseries, longtime Cable writer Fabian Nicieza and artist Scot Eaton bring together Cable and … Cable?
As a part of the Fall of House of X storyline that will effectively end the Krakoa era of X-Men comics next year, Marvel has announced Cable by Fabian Nicieza and Scot Eaton.
Nicieza has a long history with the character, having written him in the early days of X-Force as well as in the well-remembered Cable and Deadpool series. He and Eaton will have two Cables to play with, as grizzled veteran Cable teams with the younger Cable introduced a few years back to fight Orchis and a new threat called the Neocracy.

The mysterious character from another reality will make his debut in April.
Before moving on to help found Image Comics, Rob Liefeld and Whilce Portacio left their mark on Marvel’s X-Men titles in the early 1990s. They worked on X-Force and Uncanny X-Men, respectively, and between them created or co-created iconic characters like Deadpool, Cable, Bishop and more.
Now the two creators are returning to the X-corner of the Marvel Universe with the introduction of Major X, a mysterious new character who is getting his own six-issue miniseries. The series will run bi-weekly from April through June. It’s written by Liefeld, who will share art duties with Portacio and Brent Peeples (Titans, New Super-Man).
