      I want to see an issue where Cable confronts Cyclops as to what a dick he is.

    Much as I agree with that, I really find both Cyclops and Jean very strangely non-interactive with Cable, and vice versa. Scott and Jean raised Cable. Why is there no emotional connection between any of them? I don't get it.


Yes, that is an odd thing. IMO, on the meta level it is because this whole thing about Scott (and Jean) raising Cable in the future was a perfunctory handful of stories basically created as an excuse for Scott's "deadbeat dad" behaviour but then no writer who followed ever bothered to adapt Scott's or Cable's characterization in the light of these events. Add to this that Scott always was the coldest fish in the X-Men pond (even in the 1960s); his relationship with his brother Alex and his father are also not exactly known for their Hallmark moments. And there's of course the fact that much too often stories were structured around him so that even his bad decisions (such as his abandoning his family because Madelyne refused to be a good little doormat or cheating on Jean with Emma) were vindicated as "necessary in order to save the world".
