The New Canaanites are a fictional despotic regime appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. They replaced the empire of the mutant overlord Apocalypse in the future timeline from which X-Men member Cable came from.
While the Askani'Son miniseries established that the New Canaanites came into power after Apocalypse was overthrown (The Adventures of Cyclops and Phoenix #4). Earlier issues such as Cable vol. 2, #6 and X-Force #17 reveal that Apocalypse was the leader of the New Canaanite regime and fighting against the adult Cable shortly before traveling to the present. This continuity issue was caused by Scott Lobdell ignoring Fabian Nicieza's plot. Both Cable vol. 2, #6 and X-Force #17 were written by Nicieza. However, when Lobdell later wrote the limited series Askani’Son and Adventures of Cyclops and Phoenix, he killed Apocalypse, leaving the plot hole of how he can later be alive and work together with the Canaanites.
