History: (Cable III#153 (fb)) - On Earth-18352, circa 5352 A.D., the "future mutates" sensed the presence of the traveling Gideon and his robot assistant Eve and attacked, their own presence sensed moments before the attack by Eve. By 5361 A.D., Gideon had bent the mutates to his will and had begun using them as a foraging pack. While searching New York, Gideon, Eve and the mutates came across an abandoned X-Mansion in Central Park and once inside, Gideon ordered Eve and the mutates to search the mansion for supplies while he searched for any other interesting things. When Gideon found Cable's former cybernetic arm, he informed Eve and the mutates of the arm's time-travel capabilities, suggesting that if the arm still worked, it could prove an end to their struggling.

(Cable III#152 (fb) - BTS) - Gideon used the arm to travel to the past of Earth-616, bringing along the mutates as he settled into the last surviving Ophrah Industries building in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Colorado.

(Cable III#152) - When Earth-616's Cable and his allies investigated the Ophrah Industries building and were met by Earth-18352's Gideon, the "future mutates" were unleashed against Cable and his allies. The mutates quickly swarmed Cable and his allies, savagely attacking them, and some were killed during the battle. One of the mutates eventually downed Doop, inadvertently taking down Doop's psychic shield preventing Gideon's captive telepaths from attacking Cable and his allies.

(Cable III#153) - The surviving mutates surrounded Cable and his allies as the captive telepaths attacked and incapacitated the heroes. Doop was quickly awakened and he temporarily generated a new psychic shield, buying the heroes time to escape the telepaths and the mutates before he passed out once more. The mutates immediately pursuing the escaping heroes until the heroes came to a sealed door. As the heroes realized the only exit would back through the swarm of mutates, the Ophrah Industries self-destruct program was activated and the building soon exploded, apparently killing all of the remaining mutates in the blast.

The "future mutates" were never identified on-panel. No actual origin was given but since some of the mutates had a humanoid shape, it seems likely that they might have once been human beings or evolved from humans over time....
