Fictional character biography
1859, the immortal mutant Apocalypse during his time in Londondecided that he would need a superpowered agent in the 20th century and imprisoned an unnamed human in a special coffin. Inside the coffin, this man would be transformed by Apocalypse's Celestial technology into the Harbinger of Apocalypse.
In the late 20th century, the Hellfire Club found out about the existence of the Harbinger and intended to use it to track down Apocalypse for the Hellfire Club's exploitation. Cable tried to stop the Hellfire Club, but he was too late and the Harbinger awoke. The Harbinger defeated the Hellfire Club and disappeared, but Cable tracked him down. The Harbinger told Cable that his programming dictated that he should bring destruction and chaos to the world, but he wanted to judge humanity himself before obeying.
Some time later, the Harbinger reappeared in
Manhattanand decided that humanity should be destroyed. Cable and the Avengers battled the Harbinger, but he adapted to all of their attacks. In the end, Apocalypse activated a bomb inside the Harbinger which would destroy New York. Cable managed to prevent the destruction of New York by wearing Iron Man's flight boots and grabbing the Harbinger. The bomb exploded over the Atlantic Ocean, killing the Harbinger, but Cable was saved by a group of timetravellers.
