The plot, as I remembered, is as follows:

  • Cable's children die, and he travels back in time.
  • Apocalypse prepares some sort of disease that will eventually kill Cable's children.
  • Cable destroys the virus caches and infects Wolverine. A serum is developed thanks to Wolverine's immune system.

Do you know which episodes fall into this arc?


1 Answer 1


You're describing the X-Men: The Animated Series episodes Time Fugitives (Part 1) and Time Fugitives (Part 2).

Part 1 opener

Cable and Clan Chosen are fighting Apocalypse and his robots in the year, 3999 AD until a temporal storm devastates the city. Cable questions his A.I. about what's happening and it explains how Bishop travelled to the past and stopped a disease from spreading, meaning mutants would die. It further goes on to explain hoe Cable's timeline is going to cease to exist.

Part 2 ending

Back at the X-Mansion, Beast examines Wolverine and finds that he has fully recovered from the plague, providing the anti-bodies Cable needed to save his timeline. Cable returns to his timeline to find that everything is restored to as before and Tyler is safe.
