TRDL 2009 Series No. 8 - Cable Redesign

I'm not a big fan of Cable. The character was borne from a period in comics that left me cold. That said, in fiddling with the concept for this redesign, I became interested in the nomadic warlord, the symbol of hope in a devastated world that worships the Phoenix Force. I bulked him up under a cloak to hide his armor and weapons, and included decay in his cyberarm. It suddenly occurred to me: what if he was worshipped as the king of the Askani clan, because of his heritage, and what if the Phoenix Force had touched him? Hence the wings.
