THAT cover from 27 years ago is iconic and has been re-used, re-purposed, homaged many times.
Marvel Comics Legacy and Cable #150 spoilers follow.
Cable’s first appearance in 1990’s New Mutants #87 with art by Rob Liefeld.
Cable and the Mutants #150 2017 cover also by Rob Liefeld.
The lenticular version shifting between the two covers.
Anyhow, Cable #150 has a three page back-up that tries to make sense of the convoluted origins of Nathan Summers aka Cable.
Does this help you understand Cable’s history?
