Fictional character Biography

Tyler Dayspring was born 2000 years in the future as the son of Nathan Dayspring and his wife Aliya (though some accounts claim that Nathan was not the actual father, and has adopted Tyler). He was raised by the Daysprings as part of the Askani Clan Chosen. As a young teenager, Tyler was abducted by the villain Stryfe and corrupted. He reappeared as one of Stryfe's soldiers and took Dawnsilk, a friend of Nathan, as a hostage. Seeing no other solution, Nathan shot Tyler, freeing Dawnsilk (though she received brain damage from the mental link between her and Tyler). Tyler was thought to be dead, but he survived and escaped from Stryfe's service. He had grown bitter against his father for shooting him. Cable (Nathan Christopher Summers) is a fictional character in the Marvel Comics Universe, a superhero associated with the X-Men and X-Force. ... The Askani are a fictional organisation in the Marvel Universe. ... Stryfe is a fictional character, a Marvel Comics supervillain, and a clone of Cable. ...


He used time travel to come to the present, following his father. He created the identity of "Tolliver", an illegal weapons merchant who always appeared wearing a rubber mask. Tyler wanted to punish everybody who had ever hurt him, first and foremost his father, who was now calling himself Cable. He hired the Six Pack, his father's group of mercenaries, and sent them on a mission that would bring them into conflict with Stryfe, who had also travelled back in time. This mission would result in the Six Pack disbanding and most of the members hating Cable afterwards. Time travel is a concept that has long fascinated humanity—whether it is Merlin experiencing time backwards, or religious traditions like Mohammeds trip to Jerusalem and ascent to heaven, returning before a glass knocked over had spilt its contents. ... Cable (Nathan Christopher Summers) is a fictional character in the Marvel Comics Universe, a superhero associated with the X-Men and X-Force. ... Six-pack has more than one meaning: Six-pack refers to a set of six canned or bottled drinks sold together: aluminum cans are held together by a yoke, and bottles are stored in cardboard carriers with three on either side of a handle in the middle. ...


After the Six Pack disbanded, Cable became part of New Mutants, turning them into X-Force. During this time, Cable told Cannonball about Tyler, but said he was just a friend who had joined Stryfe's Mutant Liberation Front and was killed on a mission. Tolliver hired the mercenary Deadpool and his girlfriend Copycat to kidnap Domino. Copycat took Domino's place and infiltrated X-force, but she was later found out and Cable freed Domino. In the fight, Tolliver's helicopter exploded and many assumed that Tolliver had died. The New Mutants is the name of two defunct Marvel Comics superhero teams, as well as the title of two series featuring those teams. ... X-Force was a Marvel Comics superhero team, featured in an eponymous monthly series from 1991 until 2002 and a miniseries running from late 2004 to 2005. ... Cannonball (Sam Guthrie) is a Marvel Comics superhero, associated with the X-Men. ... The Mutant Liberation Front (or MLF) was a fictional terrorist group/supervillain team in the Marvel Universe. ... Deadpool is a Marvel Comics anti-hero, although he is sometimes portrayed as a villain. ... Real Name: Vanessa Geraldine Carlysle Affiliation: None Previous Affiliations: X-Force, New Mutants Aliases: Domino (II) Relatives: Burt (deceased father), Dorothy (mother) Status: Deceased (Sabretooth) Alternate-X Versions: Sister Carlysle (Age of Apocalypse) Powers & History: Copycat is a very gifted shape-shifter, able to transform into another person so precisely... Domino is a Marvel Comics character, best known as a member of the X-Men offshoot X-Force. ...


Various mercenaries began looking for Tolliver's legacy, known only as the ultimate weapon. It turned out to be the futuristic android Zero. After the X-Cutioner's Song, Stryfe's body was destroyed and Cable returned from the future. Cable told X-Force the truth about Tyler being his son. He also found out from the cyborg Sinsear that Tolliver had been another time-traveller, known simply as the Other, who had come from the same future. Zero was the first Adam-unit (android) activated by Stryfe from the far future where Apocalypses ruled. ... The X-Cutioners Song is a storyline that ran through most of Marvel Comics X-Books as a summer crossover in 1996. ...


Tyler, now working with Zero, used his mutant powers to discover the truth about the exact relationship between Cable and Stryfe. He revealed this knowledge to Cable, who was possessed by Stryfe's spirit. The truth that Stryfe was a clone of Cable, was too much for Stryfe to bear and Cable was released, while Stryfe's spirit died. Tyler disappeared with Zero, but Zero left him shortly afterwards. In genetics, a clone is a replica of all or part of a macromolecule (eg. ...


Later, adopting the identity Genesis, Tyler sought to replace Apocalypse in his role as warlord in the future history of his timeline, and chose Wolverine to turn him into a Horseman of Apocalypse. He attempted to erase Wolverine's mind and re-bond adamantium to Wolverine's skeleton. On both accounts he failed; Wolverine's mutation was sent into overdrive and he reverted into a feral state. Wolverine killed Genesis in Wolverine volume 2 #100. Apocalypse (En Sabah Nur) is a very powerful supervillain in the Marvel Comics Universe, one of the foremost enemies of the X-Men. ... Wolverine, born James Howlett but more commonly known as Logan, is a fictional Marvel Comics superhero and a member of several teams, including the X-Men and the New Avengers. ... To meet Wikipedias quality standards, this article or section may require cleanup. ... Adamantium is a fictional chemical substance and metal alloy in the Marvel comics universe. ...


During a near-death experience, Cable met the spirit of his son, who told him that he had found peace in the afterlife, but this may have been a hallucination on Cable's part.


Powers and abilities

He was a mutant with ability to form a psionic link with another consciousness and visually project those memories as solid holograms. As Genesis he absorbed the energy of many mutants to increase his power, but he never displayed any increased mutant powers afterwards, instead he relied on power armor and advanced weaponry. Powered armor (also mechanized, battle, personal armor and suits) is a science fiction concept referring to a type of armored self-powered exoskeleton that is typically intended for use in battle, construction and survival in dangerous enviroments. ...


Parentage Speculation

  • Some sources state that he was actually Cable's son. Others state however that he is Cable's 'nephew' since his father was Stryfe. It is highly possible for this to happen when Stryfe kidnapped Aliya and raped her. However this is still to be proven.

Notes

  • In his first appearance, drawn by Rob Liefeld, Tyler has dark hair, but in all his later appearances, Tyler is blond.
