    Hey guys, I was watching the X-Men TV show from the early 90's and I really enjoyed seeing Cable communicating with his wrist mounted computer called Greymall. Does anyone have a listing of Cable's appearances in TV shows where he speaks to his computer? Also, I tried looking up information on his computer Greymall, but I couldn't find anything on Wikipedia. Does anyone know where I could be looking to get more information?

    Thank you!

    I think the name you're looking for is Graymalkin, the name of Cable's space station (named for Graymalkin Lane, the street address of the Xavier Institute). In the comics, Graymalkin was controlled by Cable's AI named The Professor. I don't recall the animated series' Cable ever addressing his wrist computer as anything but "Computer," but I do remember Graymalkin being the name of his ship/station which appeared in the "Beyond Good and Evil" 4-parter.

    That's great, thanks.

    I think you're right that his spaceship was called Greymalkin, but did he only ever refer to his wrist computer as 'Computer'?

    The space station was raised as a floating island for Cable's private country in the comics. The AI I think was wrecked by Sinister's mutants after most of the country is destroyed by an alien psychic weapon.

    I distinctly remember him saying things like "Computer, body-slide by two!"

    (And it just occurred to me that that could sound really kinky if you don't know that "body-slide" means "teleport.")

    So you just want the episodes where he talks to his computer? That entertains you? Why?

    Well I love it because it gives me a chance of what might be possible some day.

    I find this topic title distracting, as my gamertag on XBOX has been Cable for the last 11 years. Just saying.

    Do you call your XBOX "Graymalkin"? If not, you really should. ;)

    The Professor got very little use in the cartoon. If you really want to see more of that, you'll have to go to the comics.

    No, I actually didn't think of that when I named it. It's "Magneto".

    I never heard of naming XBoxes.
