Letters Column: Cable Grams

In an ancient castle in the Swiss Alps, Chívayre has a discussion with Sanctity about Cable. She wants Chívayre to look up Cable and tell him itís time for the Askaniíson to meet his true destiny, but Chívayre doesnít think itís the right time yet. Still, Sanctity is headstrong and reminds Chívayre of his place. Meanwhile, Cable and Storm have been given a clue from the Morlock known as Thornn that Callisto and Marrow are at a club where Lila Cheney is performing, where the two plan to detonate a bomb, hoping this will help mutants to rise up against the humans. Nathan and Ororo investigate undercover, but fail to find the bomb. Eventually, Marrow and Callisto attack, causing panic among the crowd. However, Lila manages to calm everyone down with her music while Storm and Cable take the fight outside, where Callisto and Marrow manage to escape. They decide to split up and Cable heads back in the club, where he receives the unexpected aid of Thornn who finds the bomb and gives it to Cable. Outside, Storm confronts Callisto who reveals the bomb will go off once Lila sings the end of her final song. Cable telepathically informs Lila about this and she teleports the bomb to the other side of the galaxy, where it explodes harmlessly. Cable and Storm are glad they prevented a certain disaster, but Cable is certain that a genetic war is on its way and, if he canít prevent it, the conflagration could last for a long, long time.
