Name: Cable (Nathan Summers)
MSFN Score: 69.17
Where to Farm?: War Store, Mystic Forces Rising 1-9
MSFN Thoughts: Cable has been around in Marvel Strike Force for quite some time. He synergizes well with Deadpool and is quite tanky for a blaster. The problem with Cable is, he currently does not have a team. There are rumors floating around of an X-Force team coming to the game, but that hasn’t been confirmed and we do not know what the time table is. At the moment, I do not recommend investing any resources into this character unless you happened to pull a six or seven red star orb for him.

Marvel Character Bio:
Straight out from the dystopian potential (the 39th Century, being specific), it will be the mutant Nathan Summers, Otherwise known as Cord, Sometimes referred to as the dude using the metallic arm, robotic eye, and huge weapon. He had to get the first two because of a viral infection that was half-technology, half-organic, but he’s a bit sensitive about it taking over his body. He’d much rather discuss his time as a member of the X-Force or New Mutants. He is a hero between two worlds, two time periods, and two dimensions, who has spent his life as a hardened warrior, yet longs for peace at last.
Cable has both telepathic and telekinetic abilities quite simply, he could go through minds and transfer things by merely making use of his mind. He can also manipulate the thoughts and bodily functions of others, even from vast distances. If he chooses, he has the ability to disassemble objects or form defensive force fields. However, Cable has had to use his telekinetic powers on a regular basis to prevent the techno-organic virus from infecting the rest of his body. Since being cured, he has been able to refocus his powers accordingly.
Considering that he or she is in the far-flung future, Cable tv can access incredible technologies, similar to a teleportation product from Forge (a mutant technosmith) that allows him to “bodyslide” across substantial ranges. He also employs a Forge-created robotic arm casing that assists in using his biological left arm, fires missiles, and utilizes extended “fingers” that allow Cable to hold and carry items, and a mechanical eye that fires lasers on command. Cable’s techno-organic left arm and shoulder afford him enhanced strength and durability and temporarily housed a time-travel device. His techno-organic right eye can also see into the infrared portion of the spectrum.
Cable’s techno-organics add a cyberjack for interfacing with personal computer techniques, along with an ion blade as well as other similar accoutrements. He can aesthetically alter the surface texture of his techno-organics via “synth-org” technology to resemble human skin.
When his powers are depleted, Cord replaces them via engineering implies, employing the Dominus Purpose details filtration system to gain access to the global information system (“infonet”). He uses this to replace his telepathy and the “Cone of Silence” gravimetric force field generator to provide a sheath of force that he manipulates to replace his telekinesis. He also once houses an encyclopedic intelligence system dubbed “Professor,” while having access to a space station called “Graymalkin” that provides body sliding and time-travel capabilities.
Cord is experienced in wielding numerous forms of firearms and has also wielded the Psimitar, an Askani weapon that routes his psionic powers. Cable is a highly accomplished warrior and battle strategist, a skilled operator of many types of vehicles, and highly adept at many forms of hand-to-hand combat and in the use of a variety of weaponry from both the 21st and 39th centuries.
