Cable

Cable is a time travelling cybernetic mutant soldier, "in many ways the opposite of Deadpool", yet he's been known to be both an enemy and ally to Deadpool. He's the villain in Deadpool 2.

In Deadpool's sequel, the movie narrates the story of Deadpool forming a team of mutants called the X-Force to protect a young mutant from Cable.

Check out the trailer to learn more about the movie:

Cable, portrayed by Josh Brolin, is the biological son of the X-Men member Cyclops (Scott Summers) and Madelyne Pryor (Jean Grey's clone). He is from a possible future timeline, having been transported as an infant to the future, where he grew into a warrior, before returning to the present.

    Can you identify the shirt he wears under the tactical vest during the prison break-in? I can provide pictures via email.

    Questions on the BFG:
    You can clearly see a shroud around the actual barrel, then immediately underneath is an ar-15 type rail system to which the grenade launcher is attached. Why the extra barrel shroud between the actual barrel and the grenade launcher? Stability? Grip? No reason?
    Also, how does it work? It takes glock mags, but fires energy bolts right? Also, the lock dial on the side controls energy output?

      That’s for the 9mm submachine gun. The main barrel is an energy weapon, the second barrel fires the 9mm rounds. You see him using it in the prison scene.
