Cable – Conquest | Comics

Cable starts a centuries-spanning chase from modern day to dawn of time to save reality from a villain named Conquest.

Time-travelling mutant Cable goes back to Arizona territory of 1874 and walks into a bar. No sooner had he entered, he is confronted by four locals with future-tech guns after he tossed one of them out and soon took care of the rest.

Since all of them were well aware of him coming, he interrogates one of them by hanging him upside down to find out what the person was after that he came here chasing through time stream. That guy took him to a time marker burned into rocks where Cable's target vanished and led him to feudal Japan.

Arriving near a village, Cable finds it entirely on flames and everyone in it murdered except for a woman and her son, who informed him that men with swords of fire did this. Tracking the attackers from the village, he came across a group of Rōnin who engaged him in a high-tech sword fight and even sliced his bionic arm off.

In a flashback, the man Cable has been chasing after approaches lord Daimyo Amaru Hideyoshi for his aid but left the place in flames when he was insulted and rejected before he met those Rōnins in a group.

As a traveller, he apprached the group of Rōnins and armed them with weapons to deal with Nathan Summers. Using his telekinetic powers, not only did he defeat entire Rōnin squad single-handedly but he took his severed arm back too.

Nathan forced the last Rōnin to show him the time marker and this time, he jumped back to year 1121 at Yucatán Coast of Mayan Civilization. Upon arriving, he is immediately attacked by some locals with bird-like high-tech wings and Cable ended up saving a priest named Kagan from them.

After Nate defeated all the ensuing attackers, Kagan greets Cable before taking him to his temple. He reveals that the man he's after is known as Conquest has came to his city looking for an ancient relic which belonged to a Time Sword, which was created by The Eternals.

It was destroyed by The Inhumans during Eternals/Inhumans War. Then broken pieces of the sword were scattered throughout various point of history by its power. Conquest wants to assemble all shattered pieces to re-forge Time Sword so that he can pierce through time and change history as he sees fit.

For a priest, Kagan seem to have a lot of knowledge about Time Sword and he informs all of it's history to Nate. After fighting a couple of dozens more of corrupted locals devoted to Conquest, Cable managed to get to time marker of this era and traveled back to Conquest's current location in 1908's Russia.

Looks like Conquest have already managed to collect three pieces and needs the remaining two to make it whole again before Cable can finally stop him and save the future from becoming a mess.

Cable – Conquest

Following the aftermath of "Inhumans Vs. X-Men" crossover event, Marvel Comics has decided to re-launch a few of their monthly ongoing titles once again as part of "ResurrXion" event. The storyline "Conquest" collects issues #01-05 from the third monthly series of Cable and with that, Askani'son returns to action once again.

So, comic-book writer James Robinson (Age of Ultron Vs. Marvel Zombies, Armor Wars – Warzones!) and artist Carlos Pacheco (Bishop, Fantastic Four) was brought in to conceive a new plot for first story-arc "Conquest" for third monthly volume of Cable. Artist Dale Keown (Darkness/Hulk, Hulk/Pitt) was also roped in to provide cover art for all the issues involved in this plot.

Behold, Conquest!

Even though Cable is an honorary member of X-Men, very often his own responsibility of watching over time stream puts him into solo missions. The story introduces a new time-travelling rival for him named Conquest, who had no prior history of tangling with him or any of the other Marvel characters though.

The motives of this new villain are somewhat similar to Kang the Conqueror but only to a much smaller scale of course that Nathan alone can handle with some struggle. However, there are chances that this guy throws the fate of the universe into jeopardy in foreseeable future that forces to assemble The Avengers and Fantastic Four alongside the X-Men.
