At some point after the formation of the Clan Chosen in Askani'son #4, this young incarnation of Nathan Summers traveled back to the present in Extermination #1. The Original Five X-Men were threatening the timeline by remaining in the present instead of returning to the past. "Kid Cable" orchestrated their return after killing his older self, "retiring" the old man to do his job better. Eventually, however, Kid Cable realized he lacked the old man's experience and arranged for his future self to be reborn through Krakoa's Resurrection Protocols in Cable (4th series) #10-11. After one more encounter with Stryfe, Kid Cable returned to his original point in the timeline to live out his history as the old man remembered it.
