One day, Firefist attacked Cable's home and burnt his wife along with his daughter hope leaving their scorched remains behind. This led to Cable using a time travel device to go back in time to the modern day to kill the young Firefist when he was Rusty Collins before his first murder. Upon arriving, he prepared himself and struck at the Mutant prison called the Ice Box but was stopped from killing the boy by Deadpool. After being thwarted, he targeted Wade's associate Weasel to find the location of a convoy that was transporting Rusty to a new facility. He was confronted by Deadpool and Domino who attempted to stop him where during this time Collins freed the Juggernaut from his prison cell. Collins departed alongside the Juggernaut to get his revenge with Cable deciding that he could not handle the powerful supervillain alone thus forcing him to team up with Deadpool. Though Cable wanted to kill the boy, Deadpool convinced him to save Rusty by preventing him from murdering his headmaster which was the act that led to his future incarnation as Firefist.
