Everything You Need To Remember About The Original Cartoon Before X-Men ’97

I’ve mentioned Cable throughout this article but in case you need a refresher on the character, I’m happy to provide it. Cable aka Nathan Summer is being voiced by Chris Potter, who originally voiced Gambit in the original series. Creator Beau DeMayo explained to Entertainment Weekly that while many of the voice changes on the new series are a result of more authentic representation (for example, Holly Chou now voices Jubilee so she is voiced by an actual Asian-American person), there are also thematic reasonings behind recasting. He even highlighted Cable as one of the most prominent thematic recast decisions. Cable is a time-displaced mutant, and is the son of Cyclops in a future timeline. “It was really [about] how do we make sure that the audience knows that this is a weird relationship where the father is younger than the son and making sure the vocal qualities tell that story when they’re talking to each other,” DeMayo explained. So not only is Cable a time traveler like Bishop, but he’s also simultaneously younger and older than his own father.

His presence is also fascinating because the trailers show Jean Grey as pregnant, but we don’t know which baby she is pregnant with. As previously stated, Jean dies a lot and has been cloned, and one of her clones has also been pregnant. So, looking at the comic lore, we can wonder if Jean is pregnant with her and Scott Summers/Cyclops’ daughter Rachel from the alternate “Days of Future Past” timeline … or is this the clone of Jean Grey pregnant with Cable? Is Cable going to go back in time and see himself as a baby?! Just imagine the cursed multiverse bedlam that could come from this?!

“X-Men ’97” premieres its first two episodes on Disney+ on March 20, 2024. Subsequent episodes will be released weekly on Wednesdays.
