Re: Fantastic Four reborn! - Part 5
Yeah, that's what I thought, so much so that I thought the guy at Marvel who said it must've misspoke or something, but nope. Marvel has Cable. Now WHY Marvel has Cable... I don't have a freaking clue. All I know is there's no good reason whatsoever why they'd want Cable. Without Apocalypse, without mutants, the X-Men, Cyclops and Phoenix, etc, there's pretty much nothing left to him. You'd have to completely recreate the character, and if they're going to do that then they may as well create an all-new character. The better option would be trading him to Fox for something (like some more FF rights), and that way Cable can actually appear in a movie as a functioning character. Hell, cast Stephen Lang as Cable and have him travel back in time to wipe X-Men 3 out of continuity. Now that's a movie I'd like to see.
