Abilities and Stats
In the Story
Cable was the 7th Featured Champion, being featured for the month of March 2017.
(Cable was available in the Monthly Calendar for March 2017.)

"Wade, look at my arm. You think this feels nice? I live in a constant state of agony."

Cable is a Mutant Champion. Being a Mutant Champion, he has a Class Bonus against Skill Champions, but is weak to Tech Champions.


Nathan Summers was a child of destiny even before his birth. His parents, Scott Summers and Madelyne Prior, were manipulated into having him by Mister Sinister, in an attempt to create a genetically superior mutant as his ultimate weapon. As an infant, he was instead infected with the deadly Techno Organic Virus and sent 2000 years into the future to save his life. Years later he would return, taking the name Cable to represent his unique place as a link between the present and the future.

Strengths and Weaknesses


  • Black Panther: Boy did Mr. Panther show up to the wrong fight! With all the Bleed effects Black Panther triggers, he’s going to be Degenerating a lot! Combine that with Cable's natural class advantage, and it's a pretty safe bet of who's coming out ahead here.
  • Gwenpool: Gwenpool wants to make you bleed all over yourself, which is right up Cable's alley! His Signature Power Gain will help him slip around Gwenpool's Enervate ability. Where Gwenpool's Plot Armor won't let your Special Attacks touch, Cable's Degeneration will knock off those last stubborn few percentage points off her health bar.
  • Abomination: Abomination is a great target as his Poison effect, while strong over time, needs to trigger repeatedly. This allows Cable to quickly drive his Poison duration reduction to 100%, while giving him a sizable boost for his Special Attack Damage.


  • Guillotine: A regular semi-predictable regeneration is usually a great thing to have, unless your opponent can make it run in reverse! And given that Cable can't avoid triggering that Regeneration if he wants to, means Guillotine will always have a target here.
  • Vision (Both): Power Drain to prevent Regeneration from triggering, and Heal Block to prevent it from doing anything if it does. They're also Robots, and as such not susceptible to Cable's Degeneration.
  • Magik: Magik is all up in your Power Bar, and as such, Cable can struggle against her. Power Lock keeps Cable's Signature Ability in check, and reduces the number of chances he has to Regenerate.

Recommended Masteries

  • Recovery: Cable has a strong regeneration ability, which is only improved once his Signature is unlocked. Increasing the amount of HP regenerated each time it triggers will help keep Cable in the the fight longer.
  • Inequity and Resonate: Lumping these two in together, as they both help Cable by reducing his opponent's attack. Cable is capable of keeping his Degeneration up almost full time against an non-robotic opponent, and has a pair of debuffs available from his Special 2. Together this represents a noticeable drop in the opponent's damage output, which will help Cable's Regeneration keep him above that all important 25% cut-off.
  • Willpower: Willpower works quite well with Cable. He's already got a strong Regeneration ability, which means that much more of the Health gained from Willpower stays on his Health Bar, rather than just compensating for whatever Damage the debuff was causing you, it also again helps keep Cable above his 25% Regeneration cut-off.
