Walter Simonson wrote a letter to CBG back in 1991 about the creation of Cable, where he mentioned Bob Harras wanted Louise to use some robot he had created in the SHIELD comic as the new leader of the New Mutants. Does anyone know which robot from Harras's Nick Fury Agent of SHIELD issue/ robot character he Walt is referring to here?

The only robot I remember from the Harras issues was The Deltite. Surely, not him! Thankfully, the New Mutants didn't get caught up in all of that Hydra/SHIELD crap.

Whodathunk I'd be grateful for Liefeld.

Lump, on the other hand, would have been awesome in the New Mutants.

Wasn't the Deltite a villain though? I can't see Harras thinking a villain leading the New Mutants was going to work!

Did you also know Liefeld wanted Cable and Wolverine's previous encounter, hinted at in New Mutants #94, to have occurred in the Wild West?

Then I can't think of what Simonson was referring, because the only robots Harras used in his Nick Fury/SHIELD series were The Deltite and Red (female SHIELD agent/LMD). Since this leader is repeated referred to as a guy, I doubt it was Red.

Harras only wrote like 9 issues, 6 of which were the Deltite story. The other 3 were about Yellow Claw and no robots.

Mutants are outlaws. Even with Cable they were on the run from SHIELD most of the time.

I agree it must be the Deltite. But why would Bob push for a villain to lead the New Mutants??

Did you also know the scene in New Mutants #94 where a background was hinted at between Cable and Logan was intended by Rob to reach as far back as the Wild West? What roles he would cast both characters in there is interesting to consider. I wonder if he'd have Cable as a Pinkerton Agent? Caleb Hammer? Would Logan have been leading strikes in the Battle of Blair Mountain?

Probably not, if it was taking place in the Old West. The Battle of Blair Mountain was in West Virginia in the 1920s.
