I was born into war, bred into it. People think they understand pain, but they have no concept of it. What's the most pain you've ever felt? Maybe the kind that leaves you more machine than man.

Your time's up, you dumb f**k.
~ Cable's most famous quote.
You're no hero. You're just a clown, dressed up like a sex toy.
~ Cable mocking Deadpool.

Nathan Summers, better known as Cable, is the central antagonist of 2018 superhero film Deadpool 2. He is a mercenary outfitted with robotic and cybernetic mutant abilities that grants him superhuman strength and durability. As a child, he would later grow up into a warrior obsessed with killing Deadpool in any cost. He is known to have the powers of time travel as showcased in events. He is considered as the complete opposite to Deadpool in every way. Along with being the complete opposite to Deadpool, he serves as his deadly archenemy.

He was portrayed by Josh Brolin, who also played Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise.



Cable is a sadistic mercenary who enjoys causing pain to everyone, especially Deadpool. He has no qualms about harming a child he was assigned to kill. He is very unforgiving about failures and will not stop until he finishes his plan. He has no regard for the people involved in the community and he takes full sadistic pleasure on them. He was also very vain to the fact he likes to exaggerate himself into a high process.

However, despite all this, Cable is also very tragic and quite the weak man. He states that the amount of wars he has been forced into going through has heavily affected him, maybe even traumatized him, and his main motivation anyway is killing a person who will later become a serial killer, although he is not above killing children.


  • Sharing the same cast with Thanos from Marvel Cinematic Universe, Cable was teased by Deadpool several times by comparing him to Thanos, due to Deadpool's nature of breaking the 4th wall. A case in point, in the final trailer of Deadpool 2, Deadpool breaks the fourth wall by saying, "Pump the hate brakes, Thanos", which is a reference to Josh Brolin's role as Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, released one month before Deadpool 2.
