I was trying to come up with an acronym for Cake, there aren't many options.  Go be a bitch somewhere else.

Cable's
Army
Keeps
Entertaining.

Because really, if she had her own army, it would be more entertaining than scary.

Yeah, Cable's Army doesn't put a shiver up my spine. More likely, it'll make me laugh like the Scout from TF2.

Cable doesn't do much, she's a lazy ass getting everyone else to.

She's no tactical treat either. She thinks she's invicible. Prove her wrong, and she's your bitch.

That's the THING...NOTHINGS HE DID IS MASTERMINDFUL. Its standard military and intelligence community actions. Nothing that isn't done on a regular bases by the CIA, FBI, the Air Force, Special Air Service, etc.
She's smarter than everyone around her, nothing more. In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king.

Yeah, she created SC but that all she does, she don't do anything else apart from stealing the brainiest uglies and turning them into specials just like her, instead of giving them a life to live, she captures them just for her, I think tally is the next Dr.Cable.

If she had the idea to use knowledge from the past and turn it into tactics, then she was pretty smart. Keep in mind also that the CIA and the FBI are groups of people, Cable is one person.

Its not TACTICS. Its just reusing the plan by-the-book, and it only worked because Tally was too blind to see what would happen. If I were in that situation, I would have taken the locket and activated it far away from the Smoke, preferabbly somewhere where I could trigger det charges and drop several thousand tons of quarred stone on the idiot Specials who came after it. Or maybe some water to drown them. Lava. SOMETHING natural that would kill their asses in seconds.

That's a good plan, I would have just strapped the locket on to a bird or something and sent it flying.

That was my original idea actually...but my guess is there's at least one more secondary tracker in that damn thing knowing Cable.
