Back in Cable #1 (so long ago now) we discovered how the Teen Cable came by his very own X of Swords, plucking it from an alien behemoth, only to get a little big of mnemonic feedback.
We learn who had it before it ended up embedded in the creature he pulled it out of. And it was a very familiar type of swordsman.
This sword is the Light Of Galador, owned by the first of the Spaceknights of Galador. They may not be able to say his name anymore… but that's Rom, Space Warrior. Now owned by Hasbro and licensed to IDW, but Marvel still owns all the aspects that they brought to the party, back when they were creating the toy and the comic book backstory together.
And the remaining knights are awakened and on their way… using some kind of invisible propulsion system – or pulled along by strings.
A fleet of space knights heading to Earth? Will they hit the Kree/Skrull Armada, Knull's army or whatever it is Aaron Stark has been looking out for? We may get an answer in Cable #3 in August, Which was solicited thus:

But it seems that reuniting with Deadpool for the first time may not be top of his agenda. Marvel PR has sent out the following…
Could we be getting to Rom The Space Knight sooner than we thought?
