SACRIFICE. Origin (adolescent) of Cable, Part 4 of 4. More years pass as Scott and Jean raise Nathan Christopher in a future ruled by Apocalypse. When Nate reaches puberty, the techo-organic virus in his system runs out of control and threatens to kill him. Nathan is visited psychically by his 'sister,' Rachel Summers, who teaches him how to keep the virus in check. With Nate once again healthy, he joins Scott and Jean in an attack on Apocalypse who is trying to transfer his essence into the young body of Stryfe. Even if Apocalypse is defeated, time will need to right itself, and each character's future is uncertain.
