After the status quo shattering Messiah CompleX, Cable found himself on the run through time with the new mutant child and now the X-Men make a move to aid him! In the extra-sized Cable #6, featuring a longer story from acclaimed novelist Duane Swierczynski (Immortal Iron Fist), along with artists Ariel Olivetti and Michel Lacombe, presents a story of a father and son separated by generations, but sharing the same mission—saving mutantkind. In the present, Cyclops looks for a sign that he made the right decision, while in the future, his son Cable is still on the run from his former ally Bishop. What will Cyclops & The X-Men do to help Cable? Will it be enough? And will he come to regret it?

Additionally, to celebrate Marvel’s landmark simian series, Marvel Apes, debuting in September, this issue features a Monkey Variant cover by legendary artist Rob Liefeld!
