The Six Pack is a team of fictional characters in the Marvel Comics Universe. The original team debuted in "X-Force" #8, March (1992), created by Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld.

Fictional team biography

When Stryfe travels to the present, Cable follows him with the aim of stopping Stryfe's plans as well as preventing Apocalypse's rise to power. Cable forms a group initially called the Wild Pack, but conflict with Silver Sable (who already had a group called the Wild Pack) forces him to change the name to the Six Pack. Cable travels between the present and his future with his ship Graymalkin, which contained a sentient computer program called Professor (the future version of the program built into X-Factor's Ship).

The Six Pack performs many brutal missions, often with a high body count. Later, they are hired by Mr. Tolliver, which puts them in direct conflict with Stryfe. In their last mission, Cable and the Pack confront Stryfe, who gains the upper hand. Hammer decides to surrender vital information to Stryfe, forcing Cable to shoot him in the back. Cable escapes via time-travel, unable to take his friends along. They escape themselves but Hammer ends up paralyzed and Garrison Kane loses both of his arms.

Kane is granted robotic arms by the Weapon X program. G.W. Bridge, an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. now, acts as liaison to Weapon X. Kane undertakes a mission to destroy Cable. Hammer provides him with vital information and Kane and Cable battle until circumstances bring them together to battle Stryfe once again. Kane's arms are destroyed and Cable uses his time-travel capabilities to take him to the far future. His arms are replaced with liquid metal versions.

Domino, Hammer, Kane, and Grizzly operate for some time on their own. In one incident, they battle then team up with the vigilante Nomad.

Later, Grizzly goes mad and begins killing people. Domino, after a long battle, is forced to kill him.

Recent developments

Recently the group has been reformed by S.H.I.E.L.D. under the leadership of G.W. Bridge for the purpose of attacking Cable ["Cable & Deadpool" #7-12] . New members include Constrictor, a mercenary who once shared an apartment with Deadpool, Anaconda who was formerly employed by the Serpent Society, and Solo a vigilante bio-teleporter with a penchant for attacking terrorists. Rounding out the group is longtime Six Pack member Hammer.

Following their failed attempt to defeat Cable, G.W. and Hammer are placed in suspended animation, while Domino is "converted" to Cable's side. Solo, Constrictor, and Anaconda join Cable in exchange for money. They are later sent to find Cable, but are trapped in his mind, which is quickly fading away. However, they are all eventually saved by Deadpool and the Fixer, and returned to their bodies.

Constrictor eventually abandoned the group, and was, unbeknownst to the reader, replaced by Deadpool. The Six Pack was hired by the American Government to commit acts of terrorism against the fictional country of Rumekistan, being led at this point by Cable. The objective was to taint Cable's reputation so as to crumble his secure reign over the country. They did not succeed, however, as it was all seemingly a part of Cable's "Plan." Deadpool also seems to have left the group after their defeat at Cable's hands.

Other versions
