Cable visits Stacey at the Babel’s bar, and they have a nice chat with one another. He later meets up with Irene, where they discuss her role as Cable’s chronicler. They are interrupted by a pleading message from Blaquesmith, who appears in astral form in front of them. Cable introduces Irene to his mentor and friend, and realizes he has to go help him. Cable manages to locate Blaquesmith in Egypt, where he is the prisoner of none other than Pharaoh Rama-Tut! The Pharaoh wishes to return to his own timestream with the knowledge he gained being in this era, but can’t do so with a broken device. Blaquesmith refuses to cooperate, realizing the pharaoh would only use his knowledge for evil. He is tortured until Cable arrives to the rescue. Unfortunately during the fight between the two powerful men, another battle takes place far away between Psylocke and the Shadow King. When their powers clash, it causes all those who have telepathic powers to feel immense pain, and Cable is no exception. It takes a while for him to recover but he recovers enough to hits Rama-Tut in his face, so he and Blaquesmith can escape. They have to go through a portal to get outside Rama-Tut’s sphinx, which is easier said than done, now that Cable has lost his telepathic powers and his telekinetic ones have been severed. However, he succeeds and they both make it out in time before the portal closes it on itself. Blaquesmith worries that Rama-Tut will still make it back to his own timeline due to an intact machine in an underground chamber, however Cable is just glad that they survived all this.
