      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.


Because he's just not worth loving IMO. He used to be this cute kid with a force field (the only version of the character I ever liked). Then he got infected with an alien robot virus and dumped in a dystopian future to be raised by a coven of cyber witches and everything he did once he came back to the present was geared towards weaponizing teenage mutants for a grim future that might not even come to pass.

Honestly he represents everything Jean hates IMO. Her life was ripped away from her by the Phoenix and Madelyne and Mastermind and Sinister and so many others and she gets saddled with annoying time travel related children Cable and Rachel each with their own horror story of what the future will be. She gets no choices in any of it and Cable and Rachel want to enforce that idea that she's powerless to change the future because it's in their interests to you know keep those futures on course so they can exist.

And he's not really her son. I mean sure genetically he is but she never gave birth to him. He probably means as much to her as the guy who donates sperm cares about his 102 children.
