(Cable/Deadpool#16 (fb) - BTS) - At some point, Cable was able to realize his dream of peace and harmony by eradicating war, hunger and prejudice. Bad TV programming also ended people's reliance on televisions. Cable took on the moniker of Brother Nathan as this world transformed into one where adventure came from thought and the exploration of the human mind. Although there was conflict between him and Cannonball, Cable was able to convince this Earth's Deadpool of the same virtues.
(Cable/Deadpool#16) - From Earth-616 and hunting for the missing Cable, Deadpool used Forge's interspatial and intraspatial teleportation harness to find him across dimensions. He ended up on Earth-58161. He initially scared a mother and child reading until several floating red security diamonds rapidly appeared and blasted him, eradicating his weapons. They then left to help someone with gastric indigestion.
Brother Nathan, this Earth's Cable, then telekinetically found him and discussed the virtues of the peaceful environment and harmony he had created while Deadpool balked at the idea of what he considered to be an incessantly boring world. Deadpool then teleported after being on this Earth just three minutes as Cannonball and Siryn (both of Earth-616) arrived, pursuing Deadpool. Those two soon followed Deadpool's next dimensional jaunt.
Comments: Created by Fabian Nicieza (writer), Patrick Zircher (pencils) and Udon (inks).
residents of Brother Nathan's paradise include the four shown above,
are vaguely reminiscent of Beast, Banshee, Bishop and some bald guy who
likes hanging around the X-Men.
That guy on the right (the one who looks like Jerry Garcia) might be "Gerry", the homeless bum who used to hang out with Deadpool and who was later revealed to be a former partner in Landau, Luckman and Lake. ---Dave
The red diamond motif for the floating security devices, as well as on Brother Nathan's chest, are highly reminiscent of a prominent X-Men foe. Just a Sinister coincidence or...?
This reality's designation of an Askani-like future was revealed in the OHotMU hardcover, vol.4
Profile by Grendel Prime.
Earth-58161 has no known connections to:
Brother Nathan was this world's Cable. He was able to achieve peace in a world transformed where technology existed alongside nature, and he advanced the idea of achieving personal peace through the mind. Although he had made new alliances, some were broken such as between him and Cannonball. He still had his telekinetic abilities and seemed to have his telepathic skills as he knew what Deadpool's mission was. Despite the ban on weapons, Brother Nathan carried a lance.
