Last week, we got an excellent look at Zazie Beetz in action as Deadpool 2‘s probability-altering mutant mercenary Domino. Now, after months of teasing, we finally have a look at the movie’s other mutant addition: Deadpool’s long-time comrade and time-travelling maniac Cable.

As he did with last week’s reveal, Ryan Reynolds posted the teaser image to Twitter today, presumably ahead of actor Josh Brolin filming scenes on location under the prying eyes of paparazzi.

And here’s an even better look at the character, courtesy of Cable co-creator Rob Liefeld:
