Powers and Abilities:

Powers

Organic Steel Transformation: Colossus is a mutant with the superhuman ability to convert the tissue of his entire body into an organic steel-like substance. This substance resembling steel is of unknown composition but appears to be analogous to osmium and to carbon steel. He is able to transform into this armor-like state at will (the process is virtually instantaneous) and remain in that form for an as yet undetermined amount of time. (The longest time he has remained in armored form by choice so far has been five days). Once in his armored form he remains so until he consciously wills himself back to normal. If he is rendered unconscious, however, he spontaneously reverts to his normal form. While in the armored state, Colossus possesses the same degree of mobility that he does in his normal form. The conversion from flesh and bone to organic steel is accomplished by a psionic whole-brain interface with an ionic form of osmium, an extremely dense metal, located in another dimension. In willing the act of transformation, Colossus actually exchanges osmium atoms for his carbon atoms. The psionic interface with the other dimension re-creates all of Colossus's body in functionally similar organic ionic-osmium materials. The process by which Colossus gains additional mass from an unknown, perhaps extra-dimensional, force remains unknown. Colossus cannot become partially or selectively armored; his body is either entirely converted or not.

Image

Superhuman Strength: After transforming into his armored state, Colossus possesses vast superhuman strength. As a teenager, he was sufficiently strong enough to lift about 70 tons. However, as a fully mature adult, his strength has increased, though the exact amount he can lift isn't clear. It is known that he is able to lift at least 100 tons.

Image

Superhuman Stamina: Also, while in armored form, Colossus' musculature produces considerably less fatigue toxins than the musculature of a normal human. At his peak, he can physically exert himself at peak capacity for several days before the build up of fatigue toxins in his blood begins to impair him.

Image

Superhuman Durability: In his armored form Colossus is invulnerable to most forms of bodily harm. His armor is capable of withstanding ballistic penetration, including that of a 110 millimeter Howitzer shell. He can survive extremes of temperature from 70 degrees above absolute zero (-390 degrees Fahrenheit) to over 9000 degrees Fahrenheit. He could survive a collision with a loaded, one-ton flatbed truck at 100 miles per hour or an explosion of 450 pounds of TNT. Colossus' body attracts electricity like normal metal but he is actually immune to the effects of it himself. He can also survive falls from great heights while in his armored body. Colossus tends to jump at foes from a height creating a shock wave when he lands, due to his armored form. He can go without food, water, or air for many days while transformed, though he would eventually require sustenance.

Image

Abilities

Image

Skilled Painter: Peter is a highly skilled artist, once becoming very famous using the name Peter Nicholas while suffering from amnesia.

Image

Expert Combatant: Even though Peter has a gentle demeanor and personality, he is a dangerous hand-to-hand combatant, having received some training personally from Cyclops. He has also honed himself through years of combat training within the X-Men's Danger Room.

Image

Strength level

Class 100 strength, currently Piotr is strong enough to lift at least 100 tons, as a teenager he was not as strong and could lift about 70 tons. Also even without transforming into his metal form Piotr possesses the strength of a human of similar age and build who engages in regular extensive exercise, as a result he can lift up to twice his body weight. Piotr can press lift 700 lbs in his normal form.


Image

Weaknesses

None known, but it is possible that he can be magnetized by Magneto.

History: [Since Colossus is a cannon character, within the many universes of the X-men cannon, I’m not going to give a history. However history regarding this RP will be revealed during story telling.]

Annabelle asked Charles, "What's so special about the helmet?"

Charles replied, “The helmet protects his mind from mental probing and psionic assaults. Similar to Magneto’s helmet., which he rarely wears now.”

Erik chimed in, “It’s because I trust Charles, that I don’t wear the helmet anymore. Actually I’m not afraid for him to scan through my mind anymore.” Erik gave Charles a glance and grin.

Sabertooth cut in, “Why don’t you two just fucking get married already?” He couldn’t pass up the opportunity to poke fun at Professor X.

Vincent ran over to Xavier and gave him a hug. He then hugged Erik. They were very glad to see him and have their son back. Cain stood and watched with a smile. He longed to give the two a hug as well but he felt that he should formally introduce himself to his parents before trying to embrace them. Cain felt the emotions Vincent did for his parent’s, his lover Philip, Vincent’s friends and family at the X-mansion like Vila. He longed to relate to them all in the same manner that his brother and other-self did. However he knew that they didn’t know who he was like he knew all of them. It would be odd for him to act so close to them when they didn’t realize that he indeed did know them.

Just then a tall and very muscular man approached the group. Logan got up from the rubble he’d been knocked into and looked and the costumed man. “Well I must be seeing things… Colossus?” Logan said to himself. He hadn’t seen Colossus in a few years since he’d last left the X-men to spend time at home in Russia. His little sister had wanted to see Colossus and he could never resist her call. Logan shouted, “Peter, just in time tin man!!”

Peter smiled and replied, “Logan!! I was in the city and planning on visiting when Xavier called me. I see our big buddy Juggernaut wants to play some more. Colossus here to help.” Peter noticed Stinger holding Kyle, whom he had never met before, and was concerned. “Is the little one alright?” He asked.

Kyle had begun to wake up and saw the new face staring caringly at him. ‘God he’s handsome…’ Kyle thought. Kyle, always ready with a cool come back, replied with a wink, “I’ll be even better if you helped me up Mr. wonderful.” Colossus blushed and gave Kyle a hand.

Aidan O’doherty had arrived at Charles’ request. Erik didn’t approve of Aidan and was slightly cross with Charles for calling him. However he didn’t make a fuss due to the fact that they indeed needed his help. Aidan was a very strong mutant and he could help them get the upper hand over the Juggernaut. “Charles why can’t you control your brother…?” Aidan said as he drove up to the group and got out of his car.
Scott decided to interrupt Aidan before too much time passed so that they could begin to take action. “Sorry to cut off the reunion Professor but Juggernaut isn’t going to wait and we need to take him down. Shall I take command?”

“Yes please.” Xavier replied.

Scott spoke loud enough for the others to hear, “Alright everyone, Juggernaut is invulnerable and highly dangerous. Psionic attacks are his weakness but they won’t work unless we remove his helmet. He’s not a mutant and his power is mystical in nature so that gives him an advantage over us because he won’t tire out as fast or for as long as we will. We need to work as a team, those with superior physical strength should try to work together to keep him occupied. Those whose powers don’t affect him should focus on subduing the Morlocks. I need not have to tell you that you are to try to harm them as minimally as possible. Once juggernaut’s helmet is removed we can launch a psionic assault on him and subdue him so telepath’s be on standby. Be careful and stick together. X-men, let’s move!”

Terra

They had traveling with the Morlocks for some time now, as much as Terra appreciated all the help Callisto had given them he couldn’t help but find the whole thing strange; especially due to the fact that one of the mutants tried to hit on his adopted sister Canann. ‘Wait now that I think about it where is she’ and Terra’s look of calm flickered into a more worried look but it quickly passed. Getting up he looked around hoping to find her; but alas he did not and began to ask around as to her whereabouts ‘Aye dios mios! She has firkin white hair how can they have nor noticed her, is it because they have already seen stranger things than a 6’2 girl with white hair And a God damn tail!’ coming back to his sense he heard some people yelp.
Without realizing it Terra had made the earth tremble a bit and some rocks jutted out of the ground causing some people to trip and panic a little. 'Oh crap' and with a well-defined blush of embarrassment Terra walked away fast hoping no one knew it was him, pulling up the hood of his jacket for good measure.

Walking around a bit cleared his head some and he heard a couple kids screaming. It was the kind a child would make when they had fun. It brought a small smile to his lips and he headed towards the direction of the screaming to see what it was they were having so much fun about.

Turning a corner he found Canann crouched down on the ground looking at something on the ground; noticing that there were no lids and assumed she must have scared them off. He gave a light chuckle and leaned against a small structure his hands in his pockets and watched her. After a while a walked over to her and touched her on the shoulder "hey you alright" his voice soft and full of worry.

Canann

having been bored for an incredibly long time she decide to explore what little space she could of the Morlocks sewer home. She thought the people here were nice enough but her adopted older brother Terra didn’t think so. 'Ugh why does he have to be so protective of me' completely unaware of the real reason Terra got mad. "If the situation had turned to That i would a have killed the ugly bastard myself or at least hurt his manhood" and she giggled to herself imagining the Morlocs face if she did so.

Cananna’s mood lightened a bit but was still irritated by what happened the other day. She then came upon a group of kids each one with distinct markings somewhere on the persons that clearly said they were mutants.

Watching them play Canann became jealous of how happy they were 'they have such a nice childhood while mine was-' she shook her head to keep thinking of her past; whispering harshly to herself. "No, no, no i will not think of that i will think happy thoughts and that’s it" repeatedly hitting her head as if by doing so it would stay.

Upon doing so the kids noticed her and ran away scared of her little tantrum leaving behind the pieces of the game on the dirty floor. "Hey wait-"reaching out to them she took a step forward stepping on a plastic jack. Her face instantly light up with joy as she remembered this game as the one Terra taught her when they first met.

Smiling softly Canann thought about Terra and all the things he did for her and she was glad she met him. When a hand touched her shoulder for a moment she thought it was someone she didn’t know until she noticed the scent. 'Ahh Terra' turning to face him she suddenly stood up giving him a giant hug." Terra I’m so glad we met did you know that and don’t worry i forgive you about yesterday okay i still think you’re awesome!” she said smiling into his face.

Terra&Canann

Surprised by the sudden hug Terra fell backwards on his butt and blushed as Canann said he was awesome rubbing the back of his head in the process. "Yeah i guess i am, well um any way could you maybe get off me please" he asked and Canann complied and sat back on her heels looking at him with a mischievous smile. "hehe don’t be so mean Terra so what are we gonna do today?" her curiosity in full.

"umm i don’t know really want to train for a bit or something?" he replied. Standing back up, brushing off the dirt that was on him. Not that it would ever go away fully as he was always dirty no matter how hard he tried.

"Oh i know lets go see what Callisto has for us today" and grabbed Terra’s arm pulling him towards where she assumed the leader of the Morlocks was.

"Canann I’m sure Callisto is busy right now" but Canann simply looked back at and shrugged "i don’t care i wanna see how their doing" and with that she continued to pull Terra behind her despite his outcry of letting him go.

Finally reaching the Morlocks main base they saw Leech one of the scouts go inside informing Callisto of something. After that Callisto had all the able bodied Morlocks to go to the surface and wreak havoc above.

Canann curious as to what was going down followed them up to the surface Terra close behind. The two covered their eyes as they adjusted to the light after being underground for so long. What lay before them was a fight between an incredibly large man vs. mutants (he guessed) some in uniforms; who were trying to hold the big guy back. The opposing mutants then began to attack the group of Morlocks that had swarmed to the surface.

“Hey why are they attacking us for?” Canann looked towards Terra awaiting an answer. And as a reply Terra slammed the palm of his hands into the ground, sinking into the pavement. With a load groan terra then began to pull his hands out of the ground, which resulted in the pavement to follow. The pavement rumbled a multiple mounds appearing the size of large bears. For a moment nothing happened then with a loud rumbling the mounds cracked and shook and uncurled to reveal large Golems. Their eyes glowed and each had a kind of stone in their chest that seemed to glow.

“Alright time to fight boys!” Canann smiled excitedly and ran off to confront the mutants in uniforms going straight towards a man his hair almost in the shape of ears .(OOC: Wolverine) The Golems followed after her lead some of the Morlocks were afraid at first then some jumped on top of the Golems riding them. The Morlocks lead Golems towards the opposing mutants while others ran off and began to trash the place. Terra watched everything from where he stood not really wanting to go head to head, besides he had to concentrate on keeping the Golems from falling apart.

Annabelle was shocked that a metal could stop telepathic waves but didn't dwell on the thought instead she focused on the battle currently happening, she listened to Cyclops' orders and took into account what Xavier had told her earlier,
"I must ask that you try not to get too involved. I don’t want you hurt."
She watched as more people joined the fight, mainly the Morlocks, if they came near her all she'd really be able to do was make them fall asleep and even then that wouldn't do much they'd just wake up 5 minutes later. 'I'll deal with that when I have too.' She thought to herself and returned to the fight before her.
Annabelle mainly focused on dodging anything thrown at her, but her dodging style consisted mainly of dropping to the ground or jumping away from any object flying towards her, but whenever she noticed civilians trapped or too scared to move she'd help them.
Annabelle took note of the Stone golems attacking some of the X men, when she looked back at Juggernaut she was met by a dust bin being hurled towards her, she was knocked through a window with the dust bin. She got up and clutched her chest, she took in heavy breaths as the bin had winded her and made it sore to breathe. She looked back up to the battle and tried to get up but she was far too weak and ended up on all fours gasping for air. "Maybe I should just stay here." She wheezed, not noticing the shards of glass around her and the pieces that managed to lodge themselves in her skin.

Mutt Ant

The engine to Mutt's van rumbled as they arrived at the scene, smoke was already billowing from some of the nearby buildings and there had evidently already been quite a bit of damage made. He pulled the handbrake up and pulled it out of gear. “Shit…” He muttered under his breath as he scanned the ensuing destruction, it took some time for his senses to kick in and everything else come to view. The Morlocks had apparently decided now was a good time to make most of the chaos and had spilled forth from their sewer and Juggernaut appeared to be fighting with them.

Mutt couldn’t deny he was in awe, the fanatic in him was running about wildly in his head screaming for joy at this opportunity to see this level of mutant prowess first hand but he had his own duties to fulfil first, already news reporter vans had filled the scenes and many were already spewing the generic anti-mutant propaganda that was the norm for these sorts of events.

Taking out his phone he alerted his followers to the scene in the hopes for backup to stop the media lies. Until then however he would have to do this alone, he picked out the nearest reporter and ran flying into them butting them out of the shot. “It’s all lies! Only some of the mutants here are bad! The big guy there! He’s the bad guy! The X-men are good! They want to help! Don’t listen to the mediaaaa…” He was pulled out of the shot by the sort of person who thought necks were a band and flung into the road beside them.

Mutt pulled himself to his feet and gave himself a quick brushing down, that plan wouldn’t work twice and that guy didn’t look like he’d let it happen a second time anyway. ‘Looks like it’s onto Plan-B.’ He thought to himself as he ran back to his van, Mutt threw open the back doors and grabbed at his radio equipment switching everything on as quickly as he could before he began spouting off information about the scene ranging around behind him.

Ryan walked calmly and quietly through the halls of the Mansion. After he'd squeezed Jonathan, he'd kind of... well... run away. He said he was sorry and he really meant it. He hated that about himself. How he couldn't do much of anything without hurting someone or inconveniencing someone. Even his stupid tail was a nuisance. Just as he was about to go up to his room, he caught a glance of something happening on the TV in one of the bigger rest rooms. It was the X-men. They were fighting again in the city not too far from the Mansion. Ryan didn't recognize the behemoth they were facing, but he did recognize that the mutant they were fighting was beyond them and they weren't just fighting to suppress him, they were fighting for their very lives. Just then, more mutants burst from the ground and began to attack the X-Men who fought back. Ryan shook off his discomfort with Jonathan. He could apologize properly later, now he was needed.

Ryan ran outside and sat in the grass. He'd been practicing this for a little while, but he'd never really had to use it before because he'd never ground his scales down so hard before. Ryan could use his healing factor to regenerate his scales. However, he had to focus very hard. The scales were obviously a part of his body, but they had no nerve endings. That's why it didn't hurt when he ground his scales off in the morning. Ryan concentrated as hard as he could. He thought of the scales as a part of him that was missing, like a layer of skin. As soon as he had accepted that fact, as hard as it was, and made it a reality in his mind, Ryan noticed an itching sensation on his whole body, however he couldn't open his eyes and look or else he'd lose focus. He sat there, with his eyes closed and thought. If he did this, he'd have to accept who he was. He wasn't even close to looking like a human. The thought scared him. What would the others think? What would they say? What would they do? He'd spent his whole life trying to run from this. From the image of his parents telling him to leave, tears in their eyes, and telling a six-year-old Ryan he wasn't welcome in their house anymore. Worse yet, what would his new family say? Doctor Xavier, Thantos, Memory and Jonathan, Logan, Scott, Jean, Fuyumi, his other friends at the Academy, what would they think? Ryan thought long and hard. Was he sure this was what he wanted? There was no turning back after this. The whole world would be watching the place he was going to. Was he confident enough in himself to show who he really was to everyone in the world? Could he really do this? All of that was irrelevant, he was needed. Ryan's own pride, his own reservations would have to step aside. His family was in danger and he wasn't going to let an incident like Vincent's happen again.

While Ryan was lost deep in thought, his scales were growing at an accelerated rate, covering his body in a matter of minutes with thick, hard protection. Spikes jutted from his body, out from the sides of his forearms, from his spine, and from the end of his tail. The spikes were an extension of his scales, rock-like and sturdy. Without his knowing, since his horns were also an extension of his scales, they had grown as well, and now stood at their full length of 14 inches. The horns themselves were sturdy, buttressed, and black as midnight. They swept back around the sides and top of his head, protecting it from attacks. Ryan's fists became heavy and powerful, he felt strength fill his whole body as he finally stood and faced the city.

Ryan knew what he looked like, he looked like a monster. However, if a monster was what was needed, Ryan would be it. Ryan crouched low to the ground, after a second of hesitation, Ryan blasted forward towards the city in the distance. It wasn't that far, about a ten minute drive by car. Ryan would have to do his best to pace himself and get there fast. Making the distance in about 20 minutes, and surprisingly without tiring himself as much as he tought he would, Ryan surveyed the battle field and was shocked at what he found. A white haired girl was engaging Logan and there were massive stone... men? Ryan shook off his doubts, it must be someone's power. Ryan looked over to where he could smell Doctor Xavier was. Ryan could see the Professor and... what was that smell, that shape... it smelled like, it was! Vincent! Ryan was so glad he was safe, however, now was not the time for reunions, there was work to be done. "Professor, Vincent, it's me, Ryan." Ryan thought as hard as he could, directing his thoughts toward his teachers "I'm here to help. I realize you might not recognize me like this but... if this is what is needed, this is what I will be. I can be a monster for my family if a monster is what they need. You're all my family, so it's you I must protect. I will not let what happened to Vincent ever happen to anyone again!"

With that he roared, making his presence known. The roar was long and loud and filled with Ryan's primal might and urge to protect his family. With that, he leaped off the ground, again, a bit faster than he anticipated and jumped onto the nearest stone man. What was different, Ryan felt so... powerful. It wasn't at all like he used to be. Was it because he had accepted who he was? Or was it because he was a terrible monster. Regardless, he raised his fists and smashed the thing's face in, pummeling the rock until the giant no longer had a head. However, when he jumped off to attack another, the giant was still moving. Ryan dodged it's fists and tackled the behemoth, smashing its chest in and ripping its arms off. Finally, the thing had stopped moving and that weird rock in the center of its chest had stopped glowing. Good. Ryan roared again, the force of his bellow shook the dust from his body. Ryan was here, and he wasn't going to let anything happen to his family again.

Ace

She attacked the first Morlocks that she could reach taking them down easily as they fought with very little style or for they were like animals in her opinion. Reaching into her shadow she drew out a small knife to cut down one of the street signs making sure to take off the sign itself; twirling it around a bit to get a feel for it twirling it backwards with a thrust knocking out the morlock that had tried to ambush her “idiota” mumbling under her breath. She ran towards the nearest one and seemed to dance as she took out the morlcoks but more just kept on coming. “Damn there’s more than I thought”. She rushed to the Prof. “Oi Prof. would you like me to constrict Juggernaut so you guys can take his helmet off, it’ll be difficult so you guys will have to move fast.

Agent Six

Landing lightly on her feet she left the group of X-Men, walking away from the battlefield. Tracing her hand on whatever reflective surfaces she could reach and noticed the oncoming news reporters as they tried to get close to the battle and filming it for the whole world to hear and criticize her people. Stopping short she got to a flipped over car placing her small pale hand on its window and closed her eyes. Suddenly she heard the yelps and whines of the news reporters as their cameras stopped working as the lens went out. ‘humans are such fools no matter how many times you try to fix it as long as I can get to it I can do whatever I wish’ for almost every camera in the vicinity had an observer spirit on the lenses and other reflective surfaces.

Terra

Terra observed the battle before him with calculating eyes and noted the black figure that had destroyed one of his Golems. Then another was destroyed and he could feel a deep aching in his chest as he felt their pain as they became lifeless piles of rubble. “Damn I didn’t think they would find their weakness so soon”. With a heavy sigh Terra slowly got on his feet and headed towards the black figure that let out a terrifying roar. (OOC: Ryan) he weaved around the fighters and caught sight of Canann fighting a burly guy with metal claw-like things coming out of his knuckles. ‘You better be careful Canann you’re not invincible’. Looking away from the two he continued on his way to meet the strange creature that managed to destroy one of his precious Golems, his anger building up inside of him and sent it to all the awakened Golems; who in return let out terrifying roars that shook the ground, their roars sounded like stones grinding against each other letting out a reverberating echo.

The stone golems attacked Logan. He was taken by surprise to see the stone beings charging at him. Logan was rushed by the giant stone figure. Wolverine leaped on the Golem’s head and slashed away. “This thing ain’t alive… Something or somebody’s controlling them.” Wolverine said under his breath. He struggled with the stone figure that began to thrash about in an attempt to dismount Wolverine from its head. Wolverine was finally knocked from the golem’s head and he tumbled away on the ground with a broken nose. “Son of a… AH!” Wolverine griped as his body began to recover the injury.

Aidan had decided that he would do little in effort to stop the juggernaut he felt it would simply be too easy for him to speak immobility or something similar over Juggernaut and stop him. Aidan was a serious narcissist and he would only subdue the Juggernaut if Charles or Magneto literally begged him to lend that sort of help. He simply stood watching the happening and decided to aid in the subduing of the Morlocks. One of the Morlock men charged at Aidan wildly, the man spewed acid from his mouth. Aidan dodged and when the man came close enough, Aidan sidestepped kneeing him in the stomach. The Morlock man doubled over. Aidan then began to activate his power and spoke, “You are struggling to breathe.” The man started gasping for air that refused to fill his lungs and immediately fell over. Aidan waited just before the man would completely suffocate before saying, “You’re lungs have all the oxygen they need.” The man narrowly escaped death but he had now passed out.

Aidan had noticed Annabelle nearby. There was a trash bin that flew in her direction. She seemed to have glass stuck in her skin. Aidan couldn’t resist saving the damsel in distress, it usually yielded praise. Besides this thought, he was a doctor and naturally he couldn’t stand to look at a patient in distress without wanting to try to fix the problem. Aidan casually walked over to Annabelle who was on all fours and offered her his hand. He brought his power into activation and spoke, “The glass is painlessly removed and your wounds are healed.” The glass in Annabelle’s skin simply surfaced and fell out painlessly as Aidan had spoken. The wounds healed and Aidan smiled at Annabelle. He simply relished in his work.

The Xavier and Vincent noticed Ryan’s arrival and both smiled. They were however shocked by his sudden change in appearance. Charles thought to himself, ‘amazing… his body has undergone such a drastic transformation yet I believe it’s controllable. I believed Ryan’s transformation to be of a similar nature as Hank McCoy’s or Kurt Wagner’s but no… I do believe Ryan could possibly change the intensity of his physical mutation at will. I do believe Ryan has a chance at a more human appearance.’

"Professor, Vincent, it's me, Ryan." Ryan thought as hard as he could, directing his thoughts toward his teachers "I'm here to help. I realize you might not recognize me like this but... if this is what is needed, this is what I will be. I can be a monster for my family if a monster is what they need. You're all my family, so it's you I must protect. I will not let what happened to Vincent ever happen to anyone again!"

Vincent communicated telepathically with Ryan, “Ryan! You don’t know how glad I am to see you. Gosh friend you’ll have to tell me how this new look came about! Ryan I know there is little time, but do know that one’s appearance is not what makes them a monster, it’s their heart and their actions. You my brother, are no monster. You have the heart of an angel. Never forget that, your heart is your strength and that is what we’re all depending on Ryan.”

Aaliyah and Vila then sent their thoughts toward the Professor, “PC think you can do a force filed or something around the area this lands it will and to it and give it more umph. It won’t hurt anyone but it will put someone off balance or nock them.” Aaliyah said.

Charles replied telepathically, “Unfortunately Aaliyah I don’t have the ability to project a shield to suite that need. However there is a mutant present who can. I will get in contact with him and in a few moments you shall have the shielding you require.” One of the news reporters nearby was in fact a mutant and a former private student of Xavier’s named Clark Van Pelt. Xavier contacted him telekinetically and Clark was able to help them out.

Clearing her mind Vila called out to the Xavier “I…I have an idea that might be able to stun the Juggernaut giving us the time we need to get to that helmet but it is rather risky…..If was can take the hydrates getting him wet I can zap him with some lighting from above. I just would need to know if everyone is in the clear so no one gets hurt. Once zapped we might be able to go in for the helmet….I, I don’t know if it will work or not is thing but it might be worth a try.”

Charles replied, “That sounds like a good plan. However it will take a lot of coordination to pull off. I’ll have Cyclops and the others try to get Juggernaut into position. I’ll tell you when you are clear to attack.” Charles relayed Vila’s plan to the others.

Ace rushed to the Prof. “Oi Prof. would you like me to constrict Juggernaut so you guys can take his helmet off, it’ll be difficult so you guys will have to move fast.

The professor replied, “I think that would be a good idea in an effort to help out. But please be careful, Juggernaut is too dangerous to get close to, so you would should coordinate your attack with Colossus, Frenzy and or Kyle. They are close to his physical match. Also be warned that Vila intends to wet Juggernaut with water and electrocute him. Be sure not to get doused as well.” Charles didn’t want anyone other than juggernaut getting electrocuted.

Stinger then warned, “I wouldn’t waste your time trying to electrocute the guy. My electric attacks didn’t even phase the guy one bit! And they are just as bad as being struck with thunder. I say we try something else.”

Cyclops stepped in and said, “Let’s try this then.” He then proceeded to blast Juggernaut in the chest with a powerful optic blast. Juggernaut fell backwards abut he wasn’t phased badly at all.

“Oooo one eye you gotta do better than that!” Juggernaut taunted as he stood to his feet. Scott intensified his blast but Juggernaut blocked it with his hand and began to charge forward toward Cyclops. Juggernaut reached Cyclops and grabbed his head in his large hand halting Cyclops’ optic assault. He then hurled Cyclops at a parked car. Scott was now temporarily out of commission.

Frenzy moved in on Juggernaut and jump kicked him sending him backward destroying the concrete he was scrapped through. Cain then took action. He lifted several nearby vehicles with his magnetic powers and hurled them at the Juggernaut. He then told Agent Zero (David) to fire on the gas tanks of the vehicles that were about to hit Juggernaut. David followed suite and there was a volley of explosive vehicles hurled at Juggernaut. Juggernaut was getting annoyed. Cain was also growing annoyed.

Flare (Hideki) went after some of the Morlocks. A few of them charged Hideki. Hideki smirked, “Finally, enemies I can blast away.” Hideki hurled a grenade of light at the group and it exploded into a hot dome of multicolored light. The Morlock attackers fainted under the intense heat their bodies sizzling. Philip launched a volley of Time Bombs at a Golem causing some of the rock men to crumble.

As the battle continued to rage around him, Ryan heard Vincent's voice in his head. "Ryan! You don’t know how glad I am to see you. Gosh friend you’ll have to tell me how this new look came about! Ryan I know there is little time, but do know that one’s appearance is not what makes them a monster, it’s their heart and their actions. You my brother, are no monster. You have the heart of an angel. Never forget that, your heart is your strength and that is what we’re all depending on Ryan."

Ryan thought quietly to himself, "Thank you Vincent. Maybe being who I am, being like this... Maybe it's not so bad." Just then, Ryan whipped his head around. He smelled that metallic tang in the air, and smiled. It could only be... it had to be... "Thantos!" Ryan called out, as he whipped his head around to see Thantos dive out of the air and smack a golem in the face. Ryan liked fighting with Thantos. The two were good friends and even better partners. Thantos appeared to be having some issues. He wasn't as effective as he usually was. However, he was doing ok, he managed to bring one down.

Just as Ryan was in the process of disassembling another golem, they all backed away from him and grouped up. He'd found destroying them was more difficult that he'd previously anticipated, they started to reassemble unless you smashed the gem in the center. Ryan disengaged from the fight and adopted a defensive posture, he was down on all fours, his tail lashing wildly. The golems were all grouped around a single boy with black hair (OOC: Terra). Should he fight with this boy? It seemed ok to destroy the golems, they were just made out of stone. However, in this new form, could he hold himself back against something made of flesh? "I don't want to fight with you!" Ryan called out to the boy, "If you're controlling these golems tell them to stand down. The X-Men here, under the direction of Professor Charles Xavier, are simply here to detain that giant monster." Ryan said, pointing to the Juggernaut. "We have no reason to fight with you. Just turn around and we'll leave you alone. If you all retreat, you'll be allowed to leave peacefully. Our only concern here is that thing." Ryan said, once again referring to the Juggernaut.

However, it seemed the boy and the golems, who appeared to be under his control, had other plans for Ryan. Instead of talking, like Ryan would have preferred to do, they all shifted forward, challenging Ryan, who had struck first. Ryan slunk lower to the ground, a low growl rumbling forth from his throat. The golems answered back with a roar of their own. It was so loud, it shook the ground and grated against his ears like the sound of an earthquake. Ryan stepped back. They weren't backing down. Fine, Ryan would do what had to be done. "So be it!" Ryan roared and dove forward towards the golems, sprinting towards them on all fours. He leaped high into air, landing on top of one and smashing its gem.

Ryan jumped off as it crumbled to the ground. Roaring in defiance of the giant golems. Just as he was about to jump on top of another one, he felt a vice like grip attach itself to his tail and he was whipped into the air. The golem swung him around, smashing him into the ground. Ryan's body was being tossed around like a rag doll, however, something was different, strange even. The impacts didn't hurt that much. The bruises and scrapes weren't forming. Sure he was covered in scales, but they couldn't negate all the damage he had to be taking. Was he healing... faster? "No time to test this out," Ryan thought. "I gotta get out of here." Ryan whipped his legs around, stabilizing himself mid-air while the golem flailed him around. Ryan grabbed onto the golem's arm with his arms and legs and held on. When the golem finally stopped shaking him, Ryan planted his feet on the ground, dropped his hips as low as he could, and hip threw the giant golem, tossing it over his shoulder and smashing it onto the ground, roaring as loud as he could while he did it. It let go of his tail and he jumped on top it, and punched it directly on its gem and it smashed easily. Ryan jumped off as what was left of the golem shattered and returned to the ground.

"We can't keep this up." Ryan muttered to himself. Ryan looked over at the boy with the black hair, who seemed to be studying him, as if he were some foreign anomaly. He was the one who was controlling them. If Ryan took him down, the golems would stop. However, it wasn't as simple as he thought. The golems were regenerating slowly. Not wasting anymore time, Ryan charged at the boy with the black hair, intent on getting him to stop his geological assault.

Terra

he didnt understand why this mutant wanted to help him but he didnt care. he was being stupid for getting in the way of his friend. "no get out ofthe way thats not your friend right now he is simply an animal, a killer" his voice low and rumbling.

Canann

she was having trouble dealing with the man with long claws he kept regenerating everytime she cut him but she wasnt able to regenerate so she was at a disadvantage. "dammit why cant you just stay down"snarling at her opponent. Canann then noticed any loose dirt or stone levitate off the ground and flew towards an unknown source as if drawn to something. but she knew better, this was Terras doing and it wasnt good. 'shit Terra stop you'll die' leaving her opponent to confront Terra but her opponent wouldnt let her go so she had to watch as Terra began to fight the weird black man.

Ace

looking for Frenzy and Collossus amongst all the chaos only to find them surrounded by the Morlocks."dammit" she ran over towards the two helping them take down their attackers and briefly explained what she planned and how it could help Vila. "alright now help me find him-Crap" though Ace did find Juggernaut he wasnt alone in his hands he held Annabelle crushing her and an uncounsious Scott at his feet. "okay change of plans first we need to get Scott away from him i'll handle that you two get Annabelle" without waiting to see if they understood she dived into the nearest shadow and appeared in Scotts shadow. she came up to her waist and pulled him through, to later appear off to the side Scott slung over her shoulder. she set him down and raced back to Juggernaut. "okay i do hope this works" concentrating she willed Juggernauts shadow to become tendrils that began to snake up and around his body constricting him.but Juggernaut wasnt just about to let his own shadow stop him. with a roar he actually managed to tear through his own shadow and slammed his fist into Ace knocking her back hard. for a brief moment she blacked out and she wasnt breathing.

the shadows loosened a bit and began to drift back to his shadow only to go back to constricting him this time even harder than before. Ace gasped for breathe and a cruel smile spread across her face, her left eye was completely black save for a yellow iris; Alice had woken up and she wanted to kill oh so badly. standing up shakily, blood dripped from a large cut on her forhead which was proably the cause of Ace loseing counsious and just the perfect opening for Alice take control of their body. "you'll pay for that you oversized bastard" lightly touching the cut. the shadows nearest her began to squirm and black figures walked out of them slowly taking on the image of their master. two appeared in Juggernauts shadow holding him down they looked up at him through the slits of the mask they all wore. "id get the girl if i were you before i kill this ugly bastard" Coming from Alice something was definately wrong but it didnt matter at the moment, Juggernaut was stuck and now was the time to rescue Annabelle and take off his helmet.

Scott laid propped against a car unconscious. He imagined being with Jean. She wasn’t doing anything spectacular but sitting in a window reading a nice book. Scott liked the simple times like that. His head began to throb increasingly. The dream was ending and Scott was coming two. “Uhg… Wha-what?” He grumbled. Scott slowly opened his eyes.

He saw a young lady defending him from the Morlocks. The Juggernaut approached the girl and grabbed her. Scott wanted to help, he slowly reached for his visor so that he could blast the Juggernaut back but his arm was throbbing in pain. Just then a shadow wrapped around Scott’s body and he felt pulled under. Ace had pulled him into the shadows and into safety. Scott couldn’t say much but he was grateful that he was saved. However Annabelle was still in danger and the soldier mentality in Scott wouldn’t let that go.

Colossus and Frenzy fought off a seemingly endless army of Morlocks. The good thing was that once Colossus and Frenzy hit them they stayed down. Colossus and Frenzy could knock down buildings with their strength. They made their way toward Juggernaut. Ace had begun to constrict him with a coiling shadow. With a roar Juggernaut actually managed to tear through his own shadow and slammed his fist into Ace knocking her back hard. For a brief moment she blacked out and she wasn’t breathing. The Juggernaut was furious as he struggled to move unsuccessfully. After Ace was knocked backward her disposition changed to a more sinister degree. "I’d get the girl if I were you before I kill this ugly bastard" Ace said darkly.

Fuyumi hurried toward Juggernaut and leaped into the air. She phased Annabelle through Juggernaut’s hand and through the ground. Fuyumi and Annabelle rose up from the ground near where Ace had placed Scott. “She’s safe!” Fuyumi said to the others.

Since the interference in the area knocked out all of the camera and television transmissions, Kent and the other reporters were unable to broadcast live footage of the event. He had been covering the event trying to shed a positive light on mutant kind. He took notice of Mutt Ant protest in front of the other reporters unsuccessfully. He wondered if it would be possible to get Mutt on TV for an interview. Kent wasn’t able to ask Mutt because he had ran off. Kent decided that he should help subdue Juggernaut. He was now free to help out without being exposed as a mutant. He created a dome of electrical arc energy around the Juggernaut. He seemed to be in minor pain whereas most others would be screaming in agony under the energy bouncing back and forth inside the shield.

Juggernaut harnessed the raw energy of his magic and broke free of the Shadow bindings and the electrical shield. “AAAARGH!!! YOU PUNY LITTLE TWERPS!! GET LOST! NONE OF YOU ARE A REAL CHALLENGE FOR THE JUGGERNAUT!! I’LL END YOU ALL AND THEN KILL YOU CHARLES!!” Juggernaut yelled.

Juggernaut charged at Kent and punched wildly at him. However Kent protected himself with a shield. The sound of Juggernaut’s pounding on the shield sounded like he was hammering iron with a steel hammer. Kent wouldn’t be able to protect himself from the Juggernaut’s assault forever. “I… Can’t hold out any longer…”Kent said as he began to look tired and finally the shield shattered. Kent collapsed onto the ground exhausted.

The Juggernaut was about to finish Kent, lifting his large fist into the air. “I told you Silver Fox, I’m the freaking JUGGERNAUT!” Just then Colossus and Frenzy simultaneously punched the Juggernaut in the head sending him flying Backward.

“Sorry we took so long my friends. There were too many sewer mutants wanting to stop Colossus and Frenzy.” Colossus said.

Just as the Leviathan was closing in for the kill, a girl tackled him. The pair tumbled to the ground, but the Leviathan wasn't playing around. His claws found his their mark around her throat. He lifted her into the air, growled at her distastefully, and threw her from him. She wasn't the rock giant and she wasn't the boy with the stick, and she was in his way. This seemed to have displeased the giant, it yelled and ran over towards her, "Canaan! Canaan wake up! Are you okay? Canaan say something!" but all Canaan could do was look around before she passed out.

"Canaan!" The giant let out a deafening roar full of anger and pain, it turned to face the Leviathan, who lowered to all fours and once again, prepared himself to kill the monster. The giant charged, the earth around him began to tremble and crack, his arm began to regenerate; the earth once more becoming his armor. Tensing his legs the giant jumped high, his fists raised above his head and he brought them down, intent on crushing the Leviathan. Just then, the Leviathan felt a pulling sensation on his hind legs. He looked back and saw the boy with the stick, that he thought he'd discarded, reaching out towards him. As the giant fell on top of him, the Leviathan realized he wouldn't be able to dodge. He growled impatiently, attempting to get free. Thinking fast, the Leviathan jumped back, his movement aided by the pulling on his hind feet. A large crater formed where the giant's fists smashed into the ground, cracks began to form as the pavement broke away forming piles on top each other.The giant reached out towards the body of the girl the Leviathan had discarded, picking her up gently in his large arms and walking away; ignoring the Leviathan. The Leviathan no longer sensed fighting spirit. Killing unwilling and unprepared prey was worthless. It wasn't worth it if the prey wouldn't fight back.

The Leviathan, did however, turn his head towards the boy with the stick. It seemed he'd hampered him from attacking the giant, but he'd also saved him by providing extra backward propulsion. The Leviathan kicked off his shoes. The pulling sensation from earlier seemed to be coming from them, there must be something special about them. Regardless, the Leviathan sensed fighting spirit, and he wanted to see what it tasted like. He charged the boy with the stick, pouncing on top of him, and pinning him to the ground. The Leviathan growled softly, looking deeply into the boy's eyes. There was sadness there. He didn't want to fight for the glory of it, and he wasn't fighting to kill the Leviathan. It was a strange look, but it obviously didn't want to fight anymore. The Leviathan decided he could live. However, if he tried to hamper him again, the Leviathan could die. Scaring him away was his best bet. The Leviathan roared as loud as he could in the boy's face. If that didn't scare him away, he deserved to die foolishly.

The Leviathan leaped off of the boy, looking around for worthy prey. He saw a massive creature throw off bindings made of shadow and light. It was strong. It was, however, giving the multiple people it was fighting trouble, and deep, somewhere in his psyche, the Leviathan felt something pushing him towards the monster. He needed to protect the people there. He felt a deep bond with the group of people engaging that raging behemoth. He charged off into the battle. He was tired, and slowing down from his fight with the stone giant, but he felt a need, more pressing than hunger and survival, to bring down the behemoth in order to protect the people it was fighting. As he ran over to them, a pair of mutants punched the monster in the chest, sending him flying. The Leviathan changed direction, heading straight for the monster, who was now slowly getting up. Roaring his presence to the new prey, the Leviathan leaped into the air, pouncing on top of the behemoth and setting him off balance.

The Leviathan struck at the behemoth's head, pounding it with his fists and scraping it with his claws, but nothing seemed to phase it. It's head was odd shaped and hard, nothing was even wounding it. He appeared to have some sort of covering on top of him, bound in place by some odd mechanism. He kicked at it with his powerful legs, attempting to dislodge the cover and expose his real head. Just as he could feel the mechanism loosening, he felt a vice like grip enclose around his body. The behemoth's massive hands had found him, and were tightening very quickly, threatening to squeeze the life out of him. The Leviathan felt his body compress and howled in pain, clawing at the hands that held him and biting the soft flesh. He managed to get his knees underneath the monster's fingers and kicked out as hard as he could. At first nothing moved, but slowly, the grip loosened. The Leviathan roared in defiance, pushing against his bindings with all of his strength. Then, the Leviathan felt something change. The spines on his back and his horns lengthened, his scales thickened, and his canines grew. His claws became more jagged and wicked, growing longer and harder. The Leviathan felt his whole body strengthen, he pushed even harder against the monster's hands with renewed vigor, until the Leviathan was almost completely free of them. However, it seemed the contest of strength bored the behemoth, who reasserted his grip around the Leviathan's body in an instant and threw him. The Leviathan flew through the air until he felt something stop him. The air pressure from the speed he was moving made it impossible to move his tail and limbs to adjust his body mid-flight. He crashed into a building and blacked out instantly, his body exhausted, and his mind fading. The Leviathan's eyes slowly closed and he drifted off into sleep.

Annabelle sucked in a few breaths before attempting to stand, this time she was good for standing and not having her lungs break down.
She watched as Colussus and Frenzy managed to knock the Juggernaut off his feet, followed by an assault by the Leviathan, she watched him curiously, 'He's a little familiar?' She thought to herself, more of a question than a statement. She looked harder and recognised him as the one of the guys from the trees. 'He's an x-man?' She asked the Professor through her telepathy, not comfortable around the others made her anxious enough without her attracting there attention by speaking. 'I mean, he's a bit violent.' She looked to the Professor from the corner of her eye.
Annabelle looked at the mutant trying to escape from Juggernaut's hands, he needed to calm down. Annabelle went to use her empathy and make him calm but he was tossed into a wall. She took a step forward to try and help him but thought about it, 'Yeah better not. The last 2 times I got involved were not good.'

Alice

she had been waiting a long time to give pay back to them all of them, she laughed inwardly at how pathetic her counterparts new family was 'there all little weak children especially that one' focusing most of her attention at Juggernaut who actually managd to break through the two shadow clones that had contricyed him before. not that it mattered the two simply crawled out of Scott and Annebelles shadows at first as disgusting black blobs that slowing morphed into the image of Alice. they all wore their signiture mask and coat the one by Scott looked back at him sensing his unease at how it came to be the mask forming into a creepy smile before standing to its full 6'2 height and walking over towards their master.

So far their were 3 new shadow clones two stood by Alice and another one appreared behind Maxx and noticing the morlocks that chased her a smile formed on its mask as it took them down with ease before walking back to its master. each one taunting the Juggernaut as he fought Colousus and Frenzy. They all luaghed at his little tantrum about killing then all as well as callking them weak. that hit a berve in Alice and her 3 clones who shared a look with one another. "oh so you think your all high and mighty do you but guess what im The Black Reaper and today i think ill take your life." stepping back she nodded at the 3 clones "do it" who nodded back before they began to lose shape and began to mold together before falling back into Alice's shadow.

"you know the diffrence between me and Ace is that im stronger than her and its shamful to have my own shadow torn by an idiot like you so as a heads up when i want to my shadow is unstopable when i want it to be" a smile on her face Alice stood back as her shadow detached itself from her body and rose up becomeing 3-D in form. Juggernaut simply watched what this weak woman did before laughing at her "you stupid woman like your shadow cando anything to me" Alice chuckled darkly "thats not my shadow you idiot thats yours" pointing to his own which was now gone as it was drawn to Alice. the two merged and started changing shape and size then it stopped. What stood before them was something huge and terrifying; a second Juggernaut this one just as strong as the real one mabye even stronger since it merged with Alice. its entire features were black you could only see a facial features a smile on its face before tackling the Juggernaut.

Charles watched In great unease as Juggernaut rampaged. Ryan, Frenzy and Colossus were dealing with him while most of the others finished up handling the remaining Morlocks. Annabelle contacted Charles telepathically. 'He's an x-man?' She asked the Professor through her telepathy. 'I mean, he's a bit violent.' She looked to the Professor from the corner of her eye.

Charles replied telepathically, “Ryan has taken on a sudden change just now. He is generally very gentle but I believe his feelings and desire to protect those close to him brought on a new change in him. I am actually glad that he is holding nothing back, for to do so with Juggernaut is a great mistake.” Charles then empathically calmed a few of the rampaging Morlocks, making them return home.

Ace had snapped and Alice took over. She was creating many shadow minions. Scott was freaked out by this ability and deeply questioned whether or not Ace’s other half could be trusted as a moral part of the team or did Alice need to be subdued? Alice created a shadow minion of the Juggernaut from his own shadow. He was just as strong as the Juggernaut and or maybe stronger, its entire features were black you could only see a facial features a smile on its face before tackling the Juggernaut.

The Juggernaut was very angry. “How dare you think you can take me?! No damn shadow can beat the Juggernaut!!” Juggernaut jabbed the shadow replica a few times and lodged his large foot into the shadow replica’s torso causing it to launch skyward. Juggernaut puffed and looked around at those who were nearby. “Anyone else wanna give me a go? HUH?!” He wondered if the group was prepare to attack him at once. He wasn’t really worried due to his invulnerability but it might not be too easy for him with all of their various abilities focused on him.

Kyle looked onward at the Juggernaut and felt a little sorry for him. He had gained a big chunk of the Juggernaut’s mind when he absorbed his power so he now understood Mr. Marko’s pain. He was seriously lashing out on everyone. Kyle hovered next to Hideki and Philip he then swiftly flew toward Juggernaut stopping just short of him. “Mr. Marko, please stop this. I know what you feel about your parents and the Professor. Your father may have hurt you but your brother loves you. He wants to make things better for you both. Please just talk to him. Killing him won’t solve your problem, it won’t make you feel better.” Kyle pleaded.

Juggernaut for brief moment looked surprised. Kyle’s concern actually hit home with him. He quickly shook off his being flustered and puffed in anger again. “Don’t wanna hear it pretty boy!! I gotta score to settle with my little BROTHER so butt out!” Juggernaut shoved Kyle backward into Colossus.

Kyle collided with Colossus who reverted back to his non-metal state in order to soften the collision with Kyle a little. It would not be so good to collide with a seriously hard metal body. “Are you okay my friend? It was a brave thing to try to talk things out with Juggernaut, he’s such an angry thickheaded man.” Colossus said to Kyle while helping him to his feet. He smiled brightly.

Kyle replied, “Yeah, It’d be great to knock into you more often.” The two laughed and blushed about it.

While Juggernaut was distracted Philip whispered to Aidan, “Can you get me close to him?”

Aidan smirked and replied, “I can do just about anything lad.” Aiden then activated his power and spoke “You are on Juggernaut’s back and in position to unlock a latch on his helmet.” Philip then appeared on Juggernaut’s back. He quickly slipped a small time bomb under a latch. Juggernaut grabbed Philip and threw him into Stinger who stood not far away. The time bomb blew and the latch popped off of Juggernaut’s helmet. There was only one latch left near the front of his helmet. Just then the Shadow Juggernaut attacked the real Juggernaut once more and he was giving him a run for him money.

Pietro sat in the War room of the Xavier institute watching the monitors. The battle with the Juggernaut was going strong and the X-men had not yet been able to subdue the powerful man. Pietro was decided to stay behind and look after those that remained at the mansion. He didn’t want anyone to jump on the opportunity of thrashing the mansion while most of the formal X-men team was away. Pietro sat reclined in one of the War Room chairs with his arms behind his head propping it up. “Hmm… it looks like they got rid of those nasty little Morlocks, finally! That Callisto woman freaks me out too bossy… hehehe…” He chuckled. “I’m glad the institute somehow managed to get a video transmission through all of that interference! Else I’d have to dig through poppa Magneto’s DVD’s for a movie… God only knows what horrors I’d find!” Pietro joked.

Pietro at one point couldn’t help but feel like he himself was being watched. There was a ghostly and chilling presence in the room. He was unaware that agent six was watching him. He embraced himself and rubbed his arms as if he were suddenly chilled due to the eerie vibe the room suddenly presented. But just as it arose, the feeling faded. Pietro decided that he’d better check on the rest of the mansion. He zoomed from room to room surveying the atmosphere. He finally stopped by the holding cells where X-23 was kept. She was staring at him like a caged tiger.

“I don’t know why I thought coming here would make me feel any less creepy. Gosh I’m losing it!” Pietro said as he backed away from the cell. He then quickly zipped out of the room and back into the war room where he could see on the monitors that the battle with Juggernaut had made a new development.

At the scene of the battle, the shadow Juggernaut and the real Juggernaut swapped blows back and forth. The Shadow Juggernaut created by Ace was indeed stronger than the original by having combined the shadows of the others with Juggernaut’s shadow to surpass juggernaut’s power. Charles stood nearby worried at the way in which things were unfolding. Juggernaut no matter what refused to tire out. The shadows power began to wane, and eventually it became vulnerable enough for Juggernaut to land a well placed punch through the shadow’s torso. It’s dark and sinister face seemed to now be in an excruciating expression before it faded away.

“PATHETIC!! CHARLES, are you FINALLY done hiding behind these weaklings or are you finally going to step up and take your beating and death like a real man? I’d hate to have to get serious and wreck all your precious little students and friends just to get to you.” The Juggernaut taunted.

Magneto and Cain had heard enough and both were ready to attack the Juggernaut with everything they had. They lifted anything heavy and metal to hurl at Juggernaut. Their assault was still not strong enough to put the juggernaut down for the count. He simply slowly continued to stomp toward Charles, who stood next to Vincent and Philip, while hurling the metal away from him. Aidan could have been of far more help but chose to wait it out and see if Charles would beg him to do more. So far he was disappointed. The juggernaut, in a rage, threw a large hunk of metal that was forcing him to slow his pace back at Magneto and Cain. Their magnetic assault ceased.

Wolverine and Sabertooth lunged at the titan slashing at him in vain but were quickly smacked backward into a light pole [Logan] and a building [Sabertooth]. The Juggernaut roared and began to charge toward Charles. Kent placed up a quick barrier but Juggernaut had smashed right through it as he had gained far too much momentum. David shot a rocket at the Juggernaut but he emerged from the blast still steamrolling toward Charles.

Aidan decided to finally help and used his power to place Charles and Vincent a few more feet away from the Juggernaut. At this point the juggernaut was almost unstoppable. Fuyumi ran toward him, placing herself into his trajectory. He was prepared to plow right through the thin and pale Japanese woman but he received a surprise. Fuyumi phased out and pulled him down under the ground. She rose up from the cement unharmed and stepped away.

“He’s still coming. That won’t stop him for long.” Fuyumi panted.

The group heard a rumbling of the earth beneath them. The juggernaut was punching his way out of the ground and toward the surface. The concrete near Charles exploded and rose up the Juggernaut in an outrage. Hideki quickly tapped into the light energy stored into his body and achieved a feat he rarely before could utilize. He converted his body mass to light and at light speed appeared in front of Charles placing himself between the Juggernaut and the professor. His hands illuminated with light energy and he clapped them together in front of him to create a blindingly bright white flash. The Juggernaut couldn’t see a thing.

“AAAAAHHH!!! You little…. YOU Freakin’ BLINDED ME!!! OOO WHEN I FIND YOU I’M GONNA TEAR THAT PRETTY LITTLE HEAD OF YOURS OFF!!” Juggernaut exclaimed as he grabbed around.

The Juggernaut almost caught hold of Hideki but Aidan ran up a pulled the young man back toward himself. “That was a cute move lad, but cute could have gotten you killed. I’d hate to see such a bright student go to waste.” Aidan said Hideki with a flirtatious snicker.

Kyle flew swiftly and grabbed juggernaut. He used all of his might to pick the heavy man up and toss him toward Colossus and Frenzy who stood waiting to deliver Juggernaut a blow to the stomach making him double over. Colossus Grabbed Juggernaut’s arms and restrained him He was about the only one strong enough to do so. Frenzy leaped up onto Juggernaut’s shoulders and began to yank off the Juggernaut’s helmet. It was finally off. She hurled it into the distance far from the battle so he couldn’t quickly reclaim it. Frenzy then leaped off of Juggernaut.

The Juggernaut began to regain his vision and broke free of Colossus’ grasp. He grabbed Colossus’ head and slammed him down into the pavement in front of him. With his helmet off Charles and Vincent began to unleash a psychic maelstrom on Juggernaut’s mind. He screamed and yelled in anguish before he eventually collapsed. Charles and Vincent together managed to extinguish Juggernaut’s mental rages and brought him in to a normal state of mind and calmed him down.

The Juggernaut got up from the ground after about 5 minutes. “Oooo… my head splits. Brother… what the hell happened?” the Juggernaut held his head in confusion. He now felt bad for what he had done. The professor explained the situation and the Juggernaut agreed to temporarily take him into the mansion.

Alice

She had not been expecting The Juggernaut to punch straight through the shadow, despite the fact that she had fused everyone’s shadow with hers and the Juggernauts own. Alice doubled over, holding her stomach as she felt the pain that her shadow felt. She coughed up a little blood and fell to her knees, shaking her head Alice eye was no longer all black as the color began to recede, returning to its original color.
Ace
Ace was back but she let out a string of curses that would have made any sailor jealous. “You ugly damned Bastard the firkin Hurt! DAMMIT!” she snarled but her body hurt too much for her to move very well.

“Damn if she hadn’t intervened this wouldn’t have happened” she growled. Standing back up Ace suddenly went rigid when shadows began to return back to their original masters, but Ace’s now had a strange hole exactly where the Juggernaut punched her, including the Juggernauts own shadow. “Shit” as she lost conscious and fell forwards, right into her own shadow, and disappeared; only to appear besides where Logan was.

The others didn’t seem too pleased with the invitation of Juggernaut to the mansion. Xavier understood their feelings but Juggernaut was his brother and he much needed to make peace with him if at all possible. Things were, for a moment, slightly calm. The fighting had ceased yet agitation lingered in the air. The police and armed forces were headed toward the scene of the incident. Most of the morlocks had fled or were incapacitated. Calypso ordered those who could to retreat and carry anyone who wasn’t able to flee on their own strength away to the safety of the sewers.

Logan noticed Ace appear near him. He knelt down to make sure she was alright. She seemed to be in a good deal of pain. He could hear the sirens nearing them. The police would be there in a matter of moments. “We’d better get the hell outta dodge Professor!” Logan called to Charles.

Vincent touched his head to perform a mental probe of the minds in the nearby area. “The military is coming… A special force assigned as a countermeasure to mutants. They believe that we were in on the Juggernaut’s attack, that we intended to harm the city. Logan is right we must leave now.” Vincent said to the group, his tone seemingly calm.

Aidan, with a flirtatious grin on his face, softly and quickly stroked Hideki’s cheek with his finger and said, “Well Love, it looks like I should be taking my leave now. Tell Charles to take care of you well until I come to whisk you away for myself.” Aidan had seriously taken up a fascination and liking to Hideki, one to which confused and flustered Hideki. Aidan then turned to Charles and spoke, “Well Charles it’s been great fun but at last I bid you goodbye. Try not to get caught lad.” With that Aidan spoke a few words and utterly vanished into thin air using his power.

The armed forces came and began to attempt to set a perimeter up around the area. Cain was very upset with the situation. He began to use his telepathic abilities to communicate with the countermeasures group. “We were trying to stop this aggressive non-mutant’s attack on the city. We’ve done no one harm. Call your forces off now.” Cain was very serious in tone. Charles and Vincent knew that if the armed forces didn’t allow them passage Cain would indeed strike them down.

The armed forced replied, “You are to stand down mutant hostiles. Surrender yourselves to the house of mutant registration immediately! I repeat, surrender yourselves to the house of mutant registration immediately!”

A moment passed and no action was taken. Charles had begun to use his powers to telepathically cloak the entire team of mutants from the vision of the armed forces. “Let’s retreat now. Those of you that can make it to the blackbird head there for transport. Mutt Ant should be nearby and possibly able to drive a few back to the mansion. I will contact him telepathically and ask him for this favor. Kent also has a Vehicle and can take some to safety. We shall meet back at the mansion. We leave no one behind understood?” Charles communicated with the group telepathically.

Victor was curious about the young woman that had her hand on his cheeks as he woke up from previously being knocked into a nearby building. He hadn’t spoken a word to her yet. He was simply observing her. She was definitely a mutant but she didn’t seem like the physically advanced type like him. He began to smirk a little. “She’s pretty cute.” He thought to himself. He decided to make his way back to the Blackbird to head to the X-mansion. He turned to Annabelle and finally spoke, “Hey you coming on the jet or not?” He asked with a tilted head and a raised eyebrow.

One by one everyone made their way back to the X-mansion. No one seemed to have been caught by the armed forces. Vincent was able to persuade Cain to stand down and not attack the threatening humans. Cain hated the fact that they had to run away like they were the guilty ones. They were being pegged like villains, mutants who were pure evil, but they were in actuality good and trying to stop a magically enhanced human that was running amok. He didn’t like the world as it was, a world that Vincent, his counterpart had grown to accept.

When things settled down, Cain spoke to Charles, Vincent, Magneto, and Pietro. They all came to grips with who and what Cain was. Charles and Magneto accepted Cain immediately with joy and gladness as their new son just as they had with Vincent. Afterward Cain was approached by Philip. Philip had heard in detail about Cain from Vincent but was curious about a few things. Philip knocked on Cain’s room door.

Cain answered by opening the door with his matter manipulation abilities. He sat on his bed relaxing and motioned for Philip to enter. After the two greeted one another, Cain asked, “So what bring you here Philip.” He looked up at Philip with a genuinely bright smile. He was happy to see Philip the feeling was different than that he felt for others.

“I was curious about what was said in the talk with Vincent and the others. You said that you feel what Vincent feels as if they were your own feelings, like how he feels about the people Vincent cares about.” Philip asked hesitantly.

“Yes. That’s right.” Cain replied calmly. After a brief moment of silence Cain continued. “I suppose you’re wondering where you and I stand with each other huh? That’s a wise thing for you to want to straighten out Philip. I shouldn’t have expected anything less from my brother’s lover.” Cain chuckled a little.

Philip was still nervous. “Well?” Philip asked nervously. Speaking to Cain was like speaking to a new side of Vincent’s personality that had a different face and body. It made Philip slightly uneasy yet slightly flustered. He felt close with him yet very distant at the same time. It was indeed a strange phenomenon.

Cain replied, “I share most of the same feelings that Vincent feels emotionally and I understand him as if we were still the same being. In the case of you… like Vincent, I love you, romantically. When you’re in Vincent’s presence his heart flutters. My heart flutters just like his when you’re around me. He wants to do things to you, so do I. In fact, I’m telepathically calming myself as we speak so that my emotions don’t get the better of me a do something to you that you and I will regret. So yes, we are very strongly linked, Vincent and I. However, I will never act on my emotions for you. You’re dating my other half after all, not me. You needn’t worry, I won’t ever act on these feelings and eventually I’ll perfect controlling them, I hope.” Cain began to blush a little. He felt bad that he had to have this conversation with Philip and for making Philip worried.

Philip finally smiled as he began to feel relief from worry. “I see. I’m sorry Cain, it must be difficult for you to deal with.” Philip replied.

“For now, it’s a little challenging but it also feels nice. I like being in love, It’s like receiving all the pleasurable highlights of love without actually having to do anything. I feel like I’m cheating a little. Hahaha…” Cain chuckled.

Cain reassured Philip once more and he gave Philip a hug. The two parted ways and Cain decided to take a much needed nap. The events of the day played back through his mind. He remembered his frustrations, and joys. He was glad that Philip came. It put him at ease where he before felt a bit on edge.

Kent Van Pelt and Scott Summers

The doorbell to the mansion had rung. No one was around to answer right away. Kent Van Pelt happened to still stick around the mansion to speak to a few of his old friends and acquaintances at the mansion. He conversed with Scott in the living room. The two of them headed to the door to answer it. Scott opened the door and Kent was surprised to see Dr. Strange and another young man. Scott wasn’t very familiar with the man but Kent was. He had interviewed the Doctor once before when he was first starting out in his journalism career. Scott asked, “Hello, may I help you?”

Kent smiled, “Dr. Strange. It’s a pleasure to run into you again. I hope you remember me, I’m Kent Van Pelt. I interviewed you some time ago about your theory on supernatural phenomenon. What brings you here?”

Scott added, “You must be here to see the professor! I have to apologize. The school is in a bit of disarray due to a recent attack on the mansion. Repairs are underway but they’re still not 100%. I’ll show you to the Professor, just this way.”

Vincent Xavier and Philip Klein

Vincent then faced Ryan, turning away from the giggling Philip, and spoke. “So Ryan what’s up? I’m serious about that wine now, you want a drink? But don’t tell my father alright? Our little secret.” Ryan shook his head. "Thanks, but no thanks. As fun as that sounds," Ryan started. "I actually wanted to talk to Professor Xavier, but he's in a meeting. My... powers did something weird today and there's a good chunk of the battle that I can't remember. Since Professor X is busy, I figured if you had some time I might be able to talk to you, but if you and Philip are busy I can just leave." Ryan finished, gesturing to the door.

Philip quickly answered. “No worries Ryan, he’s all yours. Besides I should be letting him do some work for a change.” Philip rose off of Vincent’s lap. “I’ll leave you two to your devices. See you later.” Philip patted Ryan on the shoulder and exited the kitchen.

“Well exactly what have you been feeling lately Ryan. I noticed a drastic physical change in you earlier although most of it seems to have dissipated now. Tell me Ryan, What were and when did the changes occur? That information may help us figure out the cause of these changes and possibly predict other changes that may occur.

Juggernaut

Juggernaut sat in a guest room taking it easy. It was a bit strange to for a moment be on good terms with Charles. He did a lot of thinking about the past and his grudge against his brother. True it was not yet settled but he did feel slightly less angry about things. “Hmph, perhaps I should get a therapist now…” He commented sarcastically to himself. He couldn’t shake the feeling that something was wrong. Little did he know that the shadows were stirring and churning for him.

Matsuzaka Hideki, Kyle Jean-Claude and Piotr (Peter) Rasputin

Kyle and Peter had spent most of the afternoon together talking and swapping stories with one another. Kyle was interested in Peter in a different manner than he was in the others he flirted with. Peter was gentle and Kyle couldn’t help but be genuine with him. Peter, when he returned to the mansion with the others after the Juggernaut incident, saw the state of the building and decided to lend as much help as possible. He had a history with construction work and his powers made it a simple task for him. Kyle decided to help out as well. The human construction workers were astonished with the amount of heavy equipment Colossus and Kyle could carry.

Hideki happened to step outside of the mansion to talk to Kyle. “Hey there Kyle, Peter. Are you guys too busy? I wanted to ask you about something.”

Kyle replied, “Sure pal, Flare what’s up?” He and Peter then put down a bundle of heavy building materials they were carrying.

Hideki thanked the two and continued, “I have been wondering about that Aidan guy. I’ve only met him twice but each time I do he flirts with me and or makes a move on me. I wanted to know if you noticed it at all or not. You were present both times.” Hideki didn’t know how to feel about the situation but he needed an outside opinion.

Kyle replied, “You sure you didn’t ask me because I’m one of the biggest flirts here?” Kyle laughed and added, “just kidding. Though I do think that guy has some sort of odd thing for you. The first time he used his power on you to make you kiss him. The second time he sticks to you like glue and can’t stop flirting. He’s definitely sprung for some Matsuzaka…” Kyle teased.

“That’s what I thought.” Hideki replied.

Peter added, “Well my friend, how do you feel about this Aidan? Do you like him?”

Hideki was a little caught off guard by a sudden jump in his chest upon hearing that question. “Well… I don’t know exactly. He makes me feel nervous and a little flustered. But I doen’t know if it’s because I’m just uncomfortable or I’m actually into the weirdo. AHH… this is driving me bonkers!” Hideki face palmed.

“Don’t you worry my friend. This will sort itself out. You must simply give time a chance to do its job.” Peter reassured Hideki.

“You’re right. Thanks guys.” Hideki said with a smile. It did feel good to get that off of his chest. Before he turned to leave something else came to him. “Oh, also I’ve been getting this strange feeling that something is off around the mansion. Every time I pass a dark or shadowy area I feel agitated as if something were lurking about. Maybe I’m just paranoid.” Hideki looked worried.

“It’s probably nothing. Your just love struck and jittery.” Kyle teased. They didn’t know that Hideki’s power was reacting to the disruption in the shadows.

David North, Victor Creed, Stinger, Magneto and Cain

David smirked as he watched Memory stand up, cross her arms and step out into the dim light of the sewers.

"Oh boys, the age doesn't both me," she began flirtatiously as she began her walk in their direction the shoes were making little noise in space they were in. After a few seconds she reached them, stopping just around a meter away. "he's still got that pretty face." She smiled sweetly, with a hidden seduction beneath, before sauntering past them. Suddenly, Memory stopped and looked over her shoulder at them with a cheeky grin.
"Then again, with that age, I just hope everything still works as well as his pretty little face." She spoke slowly, her eyes trailing down his body to the top of the legs, focusing on a specific area for a moment, before returning to his eyes. Giving a quick wink, Memory continued on her way away from the men.

David’s smirk became a full blown smile. He was delighted to see that she seemed to enjoy his attention maybe as much as he enjoyed hers. He brushed a few strands of un-slicked hair back behind his ear and took a few steps closer to Memory. “Well now, how about you give me a thorough check up Miss Ashcroft? I’m sure everything would be in excellent working order and especially to your liking. Once we blow this little popsicle stand, I’ll reserve all the time in the world for you. Scouts honor.” David stood directly in front of Memory, intimately close.

Stinger giggled nonstop. It was all too amusing to her. She always considered David to be quite the slut but this was just too good. Watching him with this young woman was priceless. She had to admit though, Memory did make her feel a tiny bit self-conscious. She was so young, sassy and pretty. It actually made Stinger feel a tad bit old. Stinger quickly frowned and shook her head in annoyance trying to clear her mind of the voice saying she was getting older. Stinger could never shake her vanity and neither could David. He and her actually slept together once. Things were great physically but emotionally, it was sex and sex alone. Absolutely nothing emotional came out of that encounter. Stinger hoped that if Memory actually slept with David, that she either not get attached to him or that he is actually serious about her. The only thing Stinger said to the flirtatious couple was, “Well sweetheart, I’ll have you know North here is very much forbidden fruit. Know that well before you take that delicious bite.”

When Cain went to talk once more to Canaan she replied, "Unstoppable huh, no one’s unstoppable not even you X-Men-" she spat at him "-not even Terra" she said on a softer note. Letting out a sigh Canaan’s tail floated down to rest on the ground in defeat but she continued to glare at Cain. “I’ll let you help us this one time but once Terra wakes up were leaving” and with that Canaan leaned down, lifting up Terra holding him in her arms with ease. Canaan avoided eye contact with the others, her tail floated behind her like silk. At the last minute before she passed Memory her tail flicked across the older girls face, and then it trailed behind Canaan who looked as if nothing happened.

Cain was relieved that Canaan agreed to come along, even if it was only temporarily. He had faith that once Canaan and Terra experienced life with the X-men they’d understand Charles and Eric’s mission. Calypso watched the whole time in the shadows. Now that Canaan and Terra were actually going with the X-men she was angered enough to take action. She charged out of the shadows and commanded the group to stop.

“You surface dwelling X-scum, how dare you waltz down here and take your pick of our Morlock family as if we were tools at your disposal?! You’ve got some nerve!” Calypso yelled, standing behind the group. “And Canaan, I can save you a wasted trip. The X-men won’t accept you. Think about it? They wanted nothing to do with those they attacked a day ago on the surface did they?” Calypso’s voice carried a mocking tone. Her voice began to take a calmer tone, “This is a mistake Canaan. I’m not angry with you for going, but I am livid with these self-righteous pricks! I wouldn’t be a good leader if I didn’t try to stop them from taking you out of here. So as acting leader of the Morlocks, while the official leader Storm is still absent, I order every able Morlock to hunt them down and prevent the X-men from taking Canaan and Terra out of here! They are our family and we won’t lose them to these X-freaks!! NOW GO!!”

Calypso gave the order and the Morlocks attacked. Morlocks seemed to filter in from everywhere. The group was easily surrounded. Magneto turned to Canaan and snipped, “You wondered why we needed such man power? There is always a method to my madness young lady.” Magneto’s tone was that of a teacher. He and Cain knew full well that Calypso would never allow them to simply walk out of the sewers with two of her prized mutants. She did care for Canaan and Terra greatly but she would never willingly recognize that the X-men were better able to help them than she was.

Victor huffed, “I will never get used to being called an X-men… Fuck I might as well turn into that damned Wolverine.” He griped out loud to the group.

David laughed, “Well ‘Saber-ine’ at least you’ll get the action your blood boiled for.” He so enjoyed poking fun at Sabertooth.

Sabertooth growled, “North I swear I’m going to kill you in the ugliest way imaginable.”

David replied while drawing his guns from his holsters, “Aww… sorry Victor. Look baby I didn’t mean to hurt your feelings. I was just having a little fun. Please don’t be mad, stay up and keep something warm for me tonight~” David joked and promptly began to laugh mischievously.

Sabertooth could never remain pissed and keep an angry disposition with David when he pulled his notoriously gay jokes. “Damn it North!! I’m losing my fury momentum with you gaying it up over there! Shut-up and watch your girl’s back for Christ’s sake!” Sabertooth couldn’t fight the smile that crept across his face. David was truly the only friend Victor had.

David stood with Memory, “Hey love, stick with me alright. You’ll be fine. I’ve never minded a tight squeeze.” David said with a wink. He then unstrapped a pistol affixed to his thigh and gave it to Memory. “Here, I hope you don’t mind shooting sewer scum cause it won’t mind attacking you. Get my drift?” David hoped she knew how to use that gun and could bring herself to shoot someone.

Cain telepathically warned them all. “Do NOT kill anyone if possible. You can hurt but not kill. They may be hostiles but they are still our mutant brethren. If we murder today, we will lose the trust and faith of those we came to recruit as well as damage our chance at a united mutant-kind. Our goal is to escape. Let’s clear a pathway out with minimal bloodshed. I have faith in you all.”

Vincent Xavier, Abe Fuyumi

"I'll carry Jonathan, can one of you get the other?" Ryan asked, bending down and hefting the large Texan over his shoulder with much more effort than such exertions used to take. "Oof. Starting to miss my old strength." Ryan joked. "Hey Vince, mind shifting me back?" Ryan asked. He'd only just managed to get back to the way he used to be, but the current situation demanded the use of his strength. "It's ok. We can always try to get me back again later. Besides, I miss my tail." Ryan chuckled, a brave smile on his face.

Vincent nodded in agreement. “We will iron out time for sure to work on this later Ryan I promise.” Vincent smiled. “But you’re right, for now we need you at 100%.” Vincent and Ryan repeated the procedure they followed the last time in in a matter of a minute or two, Ryan way back to normal again. Vincent was glad that Ryan actually wanted to change back. That meant that he had accepted that part of himself. Ryan was now much better able to carry Jonathan than in his previous state.

“We need to get him up to the infirmary; running around this place is the last thing he needs at the moment. Plus Ace is up there locked in a room, I have the spare key somewhere in my office.” April said.

Vincent agreed. “April’s right. Alright then, the others need to be found and alerted. I sense that most others are aware of what’s happening. But a few aren’t. My Telepathy seems to be meeting with some interference. It’s not impossible to get through but still not easy. Looks like we’ll have to see to Jonathan first, and trust the other to see to Ace. I’ll try to get a telepathic transmission to Scott to rescue Ace. Let’s head up to Aprils office and get Jonathan and Six to safety.” The group headed upstairs from the sub-basement.

Matsuzawa Hideki, Pietro Maximoff, Logan, Frenzy, Kent Van Pelt, Jean Grey and Scott Summers

The group [Hideki, Pietro, Logan, Frenzy, and Kent] had found Scott and Jean in their bedroom, catching up after a long absence from each other. After giving the couple a moment, they all headed down the halls to seek out the new threat. Scott received a telepathic warning from Vincent. He turned to the group, “Everyone this is our objective, we need to rescue Ace from a locked room. Vincent believe she is unconscious. The creatures Flare (Hideki’s codename) and Quicksilver (Pietro’s codename) encountered were shadow creatures, according to Vincent. He ran into a large one. This might have something to do with Ace. We are going to check things out together, for now. Alright team let’s move.” Scott gave the command.

Jean smiled. She missed being a part of missions with the X-men. It was also refreshing to see Scott in action as team leader and commander. He was such the military man. Jean was not happy about the danger but she knew that all would eventually be resolved so she wasn’t worried. She was simply happy to be home with her husband and family. She then received a telepathic warning. “They’re coming! Many small creatures are approaching us!” Jean warned.

Many little shadowy creatures leapt from the darkness at the group. Logan ejected his claws and launched ahead of the others in attack mode. The creatures seemed afraid of the flash of light that was generated from Logan’s claws once ejected. However Logan’s slashes were not producing fruitful results. They seemed little effected by physical attacks. “What the hell are these little creeps?!” Logan shouted.

Jean telekinetically began to repel a few of the shadows. As they crashed into the walls they dispersed into pieces but soon rejoined themselves and were created a new. Scott used his optic blast and the brightness of the blast eliminated a group of little shadow creatures. Frenzy was in a similar situation as Logan. Kent used shielding abilities to defend Logan and Frenzy. Kent then converted his shield energy into a wall like force energy. The energy was bright and produced an electrical arch energy that made the shadows fritz out upon contact with it. Those touched became static-like and soon faded away. “Well that worked.” Kent said with a pleasant smile.

Logan patted Kent on the shoulder proudly, “Add a boy Anchorman! Once an X-men always an X-men.” He hoped that Kent would formally rejoin the team. It wasn’t often that Logan would openly acknowledge friendship, at least not out loud anyway. Kent blushed a little. He was a humble man that grew shy at praise awarded to him.

Quicksilver acted as a diversion. Moving swiftly and tricking shadow creatures into the line of fire. Hideki shot plasma blasts at the creatures, the brightness of the multicolored blasts destroyed the creatures easily but the energy of the explosive blasts destroyed furniture and other objects in the line of fire upon impact. He gave a pained expression, “Why are my powers so destructive…?!” Hideki groaned.

Scott took quick notice. “It’s light that most harms them! Hideki instead of fireworks, uses flashes of light energy, the brighter the better.” Hideki followed Scott’s instructions and the hall bagan to clear out quickly.

“Phew! I just hope light bright here doesn’t run out of batteries!” Quicksilver jokes. Scott rolled his eyes underneath his visor. He was of the serious sort and often didn’t get onboard with Quicksilver’s smug sense of humor. They group made it to the room where Ace was locked in. They were unsure of what lie on the other side.

Juggernaught and Charles Xavier

Charles could sense that something was amiss. His sleep wasn’t highly restful. He woke from a nightmare. In the nightmare a dark group of entities of various shapes began to swallow up the X-men and those in the mansion, First Juggernaut, then Ace, Charles was devoured next and he could feel each and every last member of the X-mansion being sucked into an eternal and life draining darkness. Charles shot out of his dream, only to hear a terrible cackle in the atmosphere. This demonic laughter echoed only in the shadows of the room. Xavier knew that this must have been related to Ace and Alice. But something was definitely off. He knew that if his dream was a premonition, his brother was in danger.

Charles then heard a scream, “HELP ME!” Annabelle screamed telepathically. He knew she was in trouble as well. He quickly hopped out of bed and grabbed his robe. He was shirtless except for his house robe that remained unfastened at the moment. He was glad to have regained the use of his legs. It was moments like this before where he wished he could quickly race to the aid of others on foot, now he could and he was grateful for the ability. A moment later Annabelle entered Xavier’s room. After finding him she stopped to catch her breath. "Professor, shadows are attacking the pupils and it's coming from someone called The Third Child, I think." She looked around the room. "One's here." She whispered and backed up against the desk, scared.

Charles replied, “Fear not Annabelle. We will get things under control. I sense the other are already alert. Together you and I make a formidable team. You must believe in your skills.” Charles reassured Annabelle.

A large shadowy figure rose from behind the desk. It loomed tall over them with slit eyes glaring. Charles immediately placed his fingertips on his head and concentrated with great focus. “Annabelle focus your psionic energy toward me as best you can.” Charles instructed quickly. He began to glow with a pink aura of psionic energy. “Psychic Maelstrom!!” Charles said aloud. The shadow creature shrieked and contorted in agony. Xavier knew that he wouldn’t be able to sustain this attack for long, even with Annabelle’s help.

Juggernaut sat in his room relaxed and watching TV. He seemed to have decreased slightly in size. He was physically slightly larger than the body of normal highly muscular man. Juggernaut’s magic enhancements allowed his to alter his size to a degree so that he’d fit into buildings without destroying doorways and knocking down walls due to his normally large frame. The TV’s light began to dim down considerably. “Wah? Don’t Xavier got enough cash to fix the TV’s around this dump? Geez I didn’t realize my little brother was a cheap-ass…” Juggernaut chuckled to himself.

The room grew darker than before. The shadowy areas in the room seemed to ripple violently. Juggernaut’s disposition became far more serious. He growled at the presence he felt. It was cold, dark and evil, yet it was familiar. “WHO THE HELL ARE YOU?! COME ON OUT YOU CREEPY LITTLE TWERP! You’re bullshit doesn’t scare me!” Juggernaut shouted. He then heard a crazed cackle surround him. He knew he was in for a fight but with who or what?

Kyle and Colossus

Kyle and Colossus had finished up helping out the construction workers that were fixing up the X-mansion. The workers had left the mansion grounds and headed home. They were all marveled at the strength Colossus and Kyle both possessed. They wished they could lift heavy metal like that, work would be completed far more faster. There were a few jealous and or fearful looks but they were soon turned around once they interacted with Kyle and Colossus’ charming personalities.

“God almighty I’m hungry!” Kyle exclaimed. He sat down on the grass outside the mansion. He was glad to be done with all the hard work. Colossus agreed.

“I am hungry too my friend. How about I treat you to dinner? You didn’t have to help me help the construction workers with the mansion repairs but you did. I appreciate that a lot. It was very sweet of you.” Colossus said as he shifted from his metal form.

Kyle blushed a little. “Ah… I outta lift more heavy stuff more often, maybe I’ll get asked out more.” Kyle said with a wink.

Colossus blushed fiercely, “Now now there is to be little need for you to be lifting heavy thing from now on. Leave that to me Kyle. I can’t have anyone asking you out, that is to be my pleasure to do the asking.” Colossus flirted shyly in reply. The two began to head off to town to grab something to eat. Then they heard an explosive noise come from inside the mansion, it seemed like their dinner date would have to wait.

All seemed to be returning to normal at the mansion following the shadow incident. Repairs for the damage caused by the Weapon-X attack were nearly complete. Magneto and the others had returned from their excursion through the Morlock tunnels. Cain, Cara, and Aidan had successfully escaped the House of Mutant Registration. Things seemed to become calm, however the world was still churning something unwelcoming for mutant-kind.

Hideki, Kyle, Peter, Vincent, and Philip

After a few days of normalcy and quiet, Hideki wanted to get out and hit the town. He rounded up Kyle, Peter, Vincent, and Philip after inviting a few others. They headed out to a dance club in the city. Things were bustling and energized. The music of the club was well noted for being like no other. The DJ was known for his mixes of songs that were most always new and unheard before to the public. People lined up around the building to get in.

“There’s a really long line. Are you sure we will be getting in to this place before the night is through?” Peter said as he looked over the long line. He placed his arm around Kyle and pulled him closer in a snuggling manner.

Hideki groaned in frustration, “Noooo~ I want to dance!! At this club with the awesome DJ!!!” Hideki was not enthusiastic about the possibility of not getting in.

Philip grinned and patted Hideki on the chest in a reassuring manner. “Hey, no worries we’ll get in V.I.P style. Vincent will see to that.” Everyone turned toward Vincent.

Vincent, using his Telepathy, got the bouncer to let them in ahead of all the line. Hideki’s spirits soared as they entered into the dance club. The music from the DJ seemed to come from the air itself, not any speaker. Vincent immediately zeroed in on the DJ as he worked the booth. “He’s a mutant. The music we hear is telepathically created. I can feel the psionic energy being projected into the atmosphere. His powers are amazing. It seems he can telepathically create whatever music he can imagine, and project that telepathy into the atmosphere.” Vincent said as he stood at the bar with Philip. The two conversed as they drank.

Kent Van-Pelt

Kent sat as his desk in his office, located in the city’s leading news network. He sat looking over the report he would announce that evening on the news broadcast. Things were pretty calm there was no negative report for the evening for a change, much to the management’s annoyance. The head of the network wanted headlines and striking news that this night’s coverage lacked, until now.

The department secretary knocked on Kent’s office door with an urgent document. “Mr. Van-Pelt. There’s a new headline tonight. Management wants you to report on this, top priority. You’re on air in about 30mins.” The secretary said before leaving out the office and down the hall.

Kent took a look over the report as he sat at his desk. His hand gripped his chin as he read the pages of information. His eyes focused in on the information in disbelief. Tonight the House of Mutant Registration will be announcing and mounting the beginning of routine surveys across the city. The governor has authorized the surveying of all public business establishments for the protection of mutant Kind by the House of Mutant registration. Kent was horrified by what he was reading. “This is nothing but an excuse for the H.M.R to weed out mutants and persecute them. I have to find a way to warn people not to fall for this trick.” Kent thought to himself.

Moments later, during the news broadcast, Kent gave the announcement and he also gave his personal disclaimer. “I have to say this, Ladies and Gentlemen watching this broadcast, please carefully consider this matter. I urge you to do your research on the H.M.R or any other organization before you throw your support behind it. Essentially this authorization for surveying is a witch hunt aimed at mutants. In my personal opinion, this is not fair or safe for your loved ones who might be mutants. Most importantly, let’s try to remember some of the basic principles our nation believes in, ‘One nation, under God, indivisible, with Liberty and justice for ALL.’ Let’s not forget that mutants are a part of this nation as well and they too deserve these basic rights. Thank you and goodnight.” Kent shuffled his documents as the broadcast ended. After they went off the air the producers were quite nervous and upset about Kent’s broadcasted opinions of regarding the H.M.R.


Logan

Logan stood in the war room with his back toward the entrance. One of the many televisions in the War room was switched onto the news broadcast Kent was currently giving. Logan stood with a beer in his hand watching as he shook his head. “Leave it to Van-Pelt to fight the good fight for mutants the politically correct way. I gotta hand it to him, Kent’s got balls pulling a stunt like that on national television.” Logan said as he took another drink of his beer.

Cain and Fuyumi also sat in the War Room with Logan. Cain huffed quietly, “Commendable. However I’d applaud him had he told the world that he is a mutant and stop hiding behind that politically correct farce of his.” Logan and Fuyumi both turned to look at Cain as he stood up from his seat. “I’m going to check on Cara. Logan, Fuyumi, you should get out and get some air. It’s a nice night out.” Cain said with a lighter disposition than a moment earlier.

Logan replied, “Nah bub, It’s nights like these that it’s best to stay in. The night may be nice, but the atmosphere ain’t right. I can smell it.” Logan said and then finished his beer before grabbing another.

Cain smiled, “Fair enough.” He replied.

Fuyumi also stood up and whimsically folded her arms, “Joanna, Wendy and I are going shopping. I should be on my way myself. If you’ll excuse me please.” With that Fuyumi gave a short polite bow and left the room.

Cain smiled even brighter as he watched the graceful thin Japanese woman float out of the War Room and down the hallway. “She never ceases to amaze me.” Cain giggled as he spoke to Logan. “Well I’ll be off as well. Night Logan.” Cain said as he patted Logan on the shoulder before leaving out.

Logan flashed Cain a quick smile in return, “Night Cain.” Logan took another sip of beer and pondered to himself. He was beginning to take a liking to Cain. He could see how he and Vincent were alike in some ways. A few moments later, Logan heard very quiet footsteps approaching him from behind.

It was Agent Six who reached out and tugged lightly at his sleeve, pinkish eyes always looking straight forwards with that same black stare and expression that never changed nor could it. Logan turned around with a curious raised eyebrow and looked down at Agent Six who was significantly shorter than him. He watched her then reached into the pocket of her dress and pulled out her notebook and pen and began to write something down. Logan said nothing as he waited for her to communicate with him. By this point he had turned to face her, his beer still in hand. After she was done, Agent Six turned her notebook around so it faced away from her. Logan’s direct whereabouts were unknown to her at the moment. With rather illegible words that looked more like chicken scratch than anything else it read;

Why haven’t you killed me yet. Most would have done so already if they were aware of those I worked with. So why haven’t you killed me yet isn’t that what all people do who wish for revenge to hark those who harmed them?

And then blinking Agent Six blinked once and with parted lips spoke the first word since her conversation (if you could call it that) with Jonathan, “why” her voice barely audible unless your hearing was as acute as the Wolverines.

Logan looked even more puzzled by Six’s sudden appearance and questioning. He took another drink and then let out a sigh. “Well kid, not everyone is hell bent on revenge. Hell, that egg sucking piece of gutter trash Sabertooth was working with Weapon –X too and I could rip his throat out, but I ain’t gonna despite the fact that he’s given me plenty of reasons to. Half of us wouldn’t be here in this mansion if Charles believed in offing those that have done wrong at some point or another. In that case Magneto would have been offed by the X-men long ago if we were that way.” Logan took another dink of his beer and then took a seat on the heavy metal war room table.

“Listen Kiddo. Weapon-X used you and hurt you pretty bad I gather. I know they did so with me. (Logan paused for a moment before continuing) Even after I escaped Weapon-X and betrayed, Sabertooth, Agent Zero and a few others, I was forgiven by Charles for hurting many people. He let me know that I ain’t a monster like Trask would have made me believe. I even consider REAL monsters like Sabertooth and David North old friends to a degree even after the horrible shit they’ve done to me. So evidently I might not be as bad as I could be. You don’t deserve death Six. You deserve a chance, and that’s why we ain’t gonna kill you.”

Logan

Logan picked up the note that Six had left behind and tried to read the nearly illegible writing. He finally made some sense of it and it was quite dark. He let out a sigh and sat the note down and took a large drink from his beer bottle while he looked back at the silly television commercial that played on one of the many war room televisions before the news broadcast returned re-airing the broadcast Kent had just given regarding the H.M.R.

April entered the War Room and spoke, “Good evening, Logan.” She said as she walked into the room taking a chair for herself beside Logan. “Not heading out tonight?” she asked as she looked up towards the screens.

Logan turned around and smiled. “Evening April. Nope, I feel it’s probably a better idea if I stay put tonight. I just got a feeling that things could go wrong if I go out tonight. Wanna beer?” Logan said as he motioned toward the second case of still cold beers that sat on the table. After a few moments, he handed April Agent Six’s note. “You’re a doctor, what do you make of this note. Agent Six left it and it’s pretty philosophical, which ain’t my cup of tea.” Logan took another drink of beer.

Victor Creed and David North

Victor had been bored around the mansion, but even he had to admit that live in the mansion was beginning to grow on him a little, though he’d never admit it out loud. After doing some weight training he decided to test out the mansion’s Danger Room equipment, he ran into David along the way. David seemed pretty idle and carried a book in his hands. He had previously been reading one of Professor Xavier’s books on the X-gene for research. Victor smiled and walked up to David, placing a hand his shoulder. “David! You’re just in time for me to check out this so called Danger Room, we were in earlier. Wanna come along? You’re one of the only few who can keep up with me, so this ought to be good.” Victor said with a smile that continued to grow larger.

David’s face frowned in a way that still showcased a smile. “I’m flattered that you asked me Victor. Why I’d follow you into the ends of the Earth.” David said sarcastically. He never passed up and opportunity to mess with Victor in a homoerotic sort of way, since Victor was such a manly guy.

They found their way to the Danger Room rather easily, since they had already been there bofore when they had attacked the mansion and kidnapped Vincent. The two went to the Danger Room doors but they were password and eye scan protected. The security settings were indeed tight for the danger room. As former members of the Weapon X program and not being X-men, Victor and David were denied access. David smirked, “I knew this would be the case but no worries. If Victor wants a Danger Room exercise David will see to it that he gets one. I should be able to hack this without too much trouble…” David said as he surveyed the hardware and the door.

Victor stopped him. “No need for you to go and malfunction their precious hardware. Guests should be destructive. Besides I’ve got an easy ticket into there.” Victor said with an almost sinister smile.

David looked curious and surprised. “Wow, I’d never thought I’d hear you say anything in regards to wanting to be a polite guest. The world is really coming to an end huh? And how do you intend to get in politely then?” David asked with a raised eyebrow.

Victor simply replied, “Logan.”

With that the two headed back upstairs in search of their old “buddy” Logan. They exited one of the halls leading out of the basement and came across Canaan who seemed to be standing in front of Agent Six, who was seated on the couch. Canaan was busy waving her hands in front of Agent Six’s unreactive face. Canaan looked quite confused. David, upon seeing the situation smirked and then rolled his eyes.

Victor’s face frowned up. “What the hell’s her issue?” He said as he looked the girl up and down.

“Clearly she doesn’t know about Six’s condition.” David replied rather plainly.

Victor slowly walked up behind the couch and loudly announced, “She either blind as blind can be or really good at not laughing as you make yourself look ridiculous.” Canaan had her attention focused so much on Six that she oddly didn’t notice Victor and David approach.

Magneto

Eric had left his office. He had been working with Pietro on some legal documents. Eric still wasn’t the most computer savvy man around so he enlisted his son’s help. However anytime the two are together a fall out is bound to occur. Pietro being as impatient as he is simply kicked Eric out of his office after minutes of fussing and fighting and began to type at high speed. The documents would be done in no time but even still Pietro refused to work while his father was present in the room. So Eric quietly left, which was exactly what he wanted, Pietro to type the whole thing for him.

Satisfied, Eric walked down the halls searching for something to do. There wasn’t seeming to be too much going on. Charles seemed like he might have been busy. However he did run into a familiar young woman. Eric walked up behind her with a warm smile planted on his face. “Dr. Coleridge! Welcome back!” He said warmly.


Cain

Cain left the War Room looking for Cara. Telepathically he tried to locate Cara and she had switched locations. He soon was able to pinpoint her movements. After finding her outside sitting under a tree smoking and drinking, he slowly approached her.
“Drink with me, Cain?” she asked as he approached her, holding the bottle up towards him.

Cain smiled smoothly and sat down beside her. “Sure. But how about we take this to the bar instead. My treat or at least my father’s treat, it’s his money I’m using. Hahaha” Cain said with a chuckle.

The two eventually went to a local bar and made smell talk. Cain couldn’t help smiling when he was with Cara. She sparked many emotions inside of him. He understood why Magneto was so close with her. “I’m really enjoying my time out with you. I hope you’re feeling better and okay to be out like this?” Cain asked.

As the two sat at the bar, the evening news cast was playing on several of the overhead televisions. The story regarding the mutant registration issue had just been announced and Cain wasn’t happy at all to hear it. However, a person at the bar was very vocal about his approval of the House of Mutant Registration. “That’s RIGHT!! We need this city combed through with a fine tooth comb. Those mutants shouldn’t be allowed to sneak up on us right! We have a right to know who they are and where they are!! Right guys!?!” The burly Caucasian male with dark brown hair said as he cheered and drank more beer. A few others joined in with his cheering. Cain became furious as he listened. He clenched his glass firmly in his hand.

Joanna, Wendy and Fuyumi

Joanna, Wendy and Fuyumi had gone out shopping at the mall. As Wendy’s shopping trips usually went she had a tone of bags. Joanna and Fuyumi only carried a modest load. They were just about done when they came across a slightly disturbing scene.

Wendy lead the group down the hallway of the mall, “Girls you sure you’re done?! I mean you barely bought anything? If you’re broke I can help out. I hate looking like a shopaholic!” Wendy said as she puffed up her lips.

Joanna smiled and giggled. “No Wendy you ARE a shopaholic. No thanks we’re done for the evening. Let’s head back to the car.”

Just then a scream echoed strongly throughout the tall mall hallways. A young woman was being chased by men in SWAT uniforms. She ran screaming for help but no one was bold enough to stop the three SWAT men as they charged after the young woman. Fuyumi quickly whipped around to see what was going on, her hair gently flowing in the air. “Do you all see that? This must be the result of what the news announcement mentioned tonight. Kent warned us didn’t he.” Fuyumi said as she watched the pursuit.

Joanna replied, “I don’t know what’s going on but we’d better help her. I don’t like those men running that poor girl down like that. It’s just uncalled for.”

Fuyumi replied quickly, “I got it don’t worry. Just meet me outside the mall. By those doors over there. I’ll bring the girl there.” She said as she pointed in a specific direction. Then Fuyumi took off running after the dashing group. She phased through several shops and was in the perfect position to intercept the sprinting young woman. As the young lady turned the corner Fuyumi dashed through the glass and phased both herself and the young woman through the floor. They traveled underground until they reached the mall doors where they met up with Joanna and Stinger.

“Wa-What just happened?! Are they still after me?!” The lady panicked.

“Calm down. You’re safe now. Miss Fuyumi here saved you. But would you kindly explain why those SWAT men were chasing you down like that?” Joanna asked calmly. The group began to walk away from the mall crossing trough the parking lot and headed for Joanna’s car.

“Oh thank you so much!” The girl said excitedly. “I was simply shopping when those men walked up to me and asked me to fill out a survey regarding a possible mutant status. I am a mutant and I watched the broadcast tonight so I did what Kent Van-Pelt suggested and didn’t sign it. I figured it wasn’t safe for me to do. Then after they began hounding me I ran away, I was scared. That’s when the chase began. I heard them yell that those that refuse to complete the survey would be taken in for questioning by the House of Mutant Registration for violation of Federal Act M-976. Thank God you showed up!” The lady explained.

“This is serious… ugh the feds don’t know when to quit do they?!” Wendy said as she dropped her bags in anger. “I mean a girl can’t even go shopping these days without a Hassel.”

“You should head home now. And know that is you ever need help, Charles Xavier and the X-men are always here to help.” Joanna said with a smile. She was now very comfortable and proud to be calling herself a member of the X-men.

After the young woman left, the ladies turned to one another. “Looks like we had better inform the professor about this. Just when things were seemingly getting quiet too…” Fuyumi said in a sad tone of voice.

Hideki, Kyle, Peter, Vincent, and Philip

As the night went on and the crowd danced to the music of the famous DJ, the party roared on. Suddenly one of the workers at the club approached the DJ booth and spoke into the DJ’s ear in a worried disposition. Philip noticed and got Vincent’s attention. “What’s going on over there?” Philip asked.

Vincent looked puzzled. “I don’t know but seeing that he’s a mutant I think I’ll eaves drop in on the conversation.” Vincent then telepathically listened in on what was being said. Blocking out several other voices he heard, he honed in on the DJ conversation.

“DJ Flow, man there are these SWAT guys at the door looking for you. They said something about receiving a tip off that you were a mutant and they wanna survey you man.” The club bartender said ina worried fashion. He was young and very hip looking.

The DJ switched to a standard track so he could focus on the conversation and not have to worry about interrupting the party by shutting off his power. “What did you tell them?” he replied nervously.

“I said that if they wanted to talk to you they’d have to wait until after the party ends and the club finished its business hours. This really looks serious man. You wanna make a run for it after your last set?” The bartender suggested. He didn’t want the DJ getting into trouble.

“Yeah sounds good.” The DJ responded.

Vincent stopped listening in and told Philip what was said. “This is not good. It seems those guys are after mutants. This is definitely the H.M.R. We’ve got to help him.”

A few minutes after Ryan left Dr. Xavier's office, just roaming the hallways, Ryan stopped. He felt the familiar touch of Dr. Xavier's consciousness against his own. He smiled. "I’m proud of you Ryan. It was a difficult situation and you handled it well. In fact, your strength helped you mother to be strong as well. You have your father’s focus and your mother’s passion. I am fortunate to have been charged with looking after a child such as you. I’ll let you be now. Take all the time you need. Oh, and I forgot to tell you, Vincent was looking for you earlier. He, Hideki, Colossus, Philip, and Kyle went out to a dance club and were looking for you but didn’t find you. Well, enjoy your evening Ryan." The professor said. Once he had finished, he backed away from Ryan and returned to his own thoughts, leaving Ryan with a smile on his face. "Thank you professor." Ryan whispered, more to himself than anyone else. At that, he turned back around and began to amble through the halls of the Mansion once more. He retreated to his room after a while, he needed to think.

~~~

Ryan was sitting in a tree. He'd decided that being up in the branches of a tree might help him think. THe fresh air was doing wonders for his mood, but he couldn't come to any sort of decision. He'd tried to get into the art room, as he felt a desire to paint once more, but he dropped it at the locked door. Ryan needed... he needed to unwind. Seeing his parents was more than he could handle. It was great that they loved him, they'd missed him, and they were serious about taking him back. It was all perfect. It was too perfect. He didn't know what to do with himself. It was too good to be true. Ryan looked down at his hands. They were still shaking. He scoffed at himself. "If I tried to paint now I'd just get random blobs of color all over my canvas. Maybe later..." He mused, trailing off at the end. Ryan shifted on the branch he was sitting in. He laid his head back against the tree and gazed into the sunset. It was getting darker, and Ryan still hadn't come up with a course of action. Then he remembered what the Professor had said. Ryan was invited to go out with Vincent and Hideki. Ryan chuckled at the thought. Hideki was always so bright and bubbly. If anyone could cheer him up, it was him.

That settled it. Ryan adjusted his sitting position for a moment before sliding off of the branch he was perched on. He fell to the ground, landing nimbly. He'd almost slipped midair, and landed on his head. Luckily, he'd used his tail to right himself and there were no head injuries today. Ryan smiled as he walked towards the driveway that lead to the city. Hopefully he could get into some mischief and get rid of his weepy mood. Allowing his body to revel in its bestial form, Ryan lowered himself to all fours and took off towards the city. It didn't take him long to get there at all. As he ran, he sniffed the air. It was harder, because he was moving so fast, but Ryan managed to pick up Philip, Hideki, Colossus, Kyle, and Vincent's scents. Ryan smiled. "My brothers. They'll know how to cheer me up." He quickened his pace.

~~~

After a few more minutes of running, Ryan had wound his way through the city streets to a dance club. Ryan sighed nervously. He'd never been the best of dancers, but he needed to do something to feel better, and heading outside his comfort zone was a step in the right direction. Just before he stepped into the line outside the door, Ryan slid into a nearby alleyway and shifted back into his human form. It took a little less time than before, but it still hurt just as much. Ryan shuddered at the pain, but soon it was gone. He dusted himself off and stepped around the corner only to be greeted by a horrible sight. SWAT team members were banging harshly on the door. They were barking orders at civilians to back away. The kept calling over and over for a man named DJ Flow. There was some commotion about the Mutant Registration acts and that's when Ryan lost it. He growled, stepping up to the door.

"Excuse me sir," an officer said curtly to Ryan. "This isn't a place for children like yourself. Go home now. We're here to arrest a dangerous mutant. It's for the good of the public." Ryan scoffed, grabbing the officer by the wrist. He didn't notice, as he was far too angry, but the man was squirming with pain. "On what charges?" Ryan barked accusingly at the man. "You don't know anything about him. You're just after him because he's a mutant, right?" Ryan said, getting louder and angrier with each passing second. "Well you know what? We're people too, just like you! We all deserve the rights laid down in our government's founding. If you're arresting mutants you should arrest all the house-pets too. It's basically the same to you, RIGHT?" Ryan snapped, finally he'd started yelling. He was losing his temper, and with it, his human form. His muscles bubbled and shifted. Black scales blossomed from his skin. His tail slithered out from his pants and his teeth and claws grew sharp. As he spoke again, his voice was raspy and mean. "Well, I'll tell you what! Here's a mutant who's had it up to here being told what he can and can't do! Let's see you try me on for size!" At that, Ryan roared, directing the full sonic assault into the face of the man he held captive. His bestial transformation was complete. He gripped the man by both shoulders, lifting him completely off the ground without batting an eyelash at the weight. Soon the other SWAT had their weapons trained on Ryan, and were ordering him to release the man, who'd fainted from the pain and fear. "Sorry Vincent," Ryan thought as loudly as he could. He was calling out to Vincent, who he could tell was just inside the door. His smell was very close. "I lost my temper and I think they're going to arrest me. What should I do? Should I run? I could lose them easily. Do I let them arrest me? I don't think I'll receive a fair trial, not after the mutant registration act was just passed."

Name: Alex Minho [alias: DJ Flow]

Ethnicity: Korean

Gender: Male

Mutant Power:

Telepath with the ability to produce psionic sound waves used to create music. This sound is not made from vibrations in the air but occurs in the mind. The psionic sounds can be produced at any frequency to create pleasant sounds or harsh screeching noises capable of driving the target into disorientation. Currently he is unable to read minds with his telepathy but he can block another from probing his thoughts by musically drowning out their telepathic probe.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Philip Klein, Hideki Matsuzaka, Kyle Jean-Claude, Vincent Xavier, Peter Rasputin


The club was in an uproar due to the disturbance at the front door of the establishment. Several swat members rushed into the club to apprehend DJ Flow. “It seems that whoever held them off at the front of the building is gone.” Vincent commented.

The swat members knocked people aside in the crowd and DJ Flow attempted to escape. Philip tossed a handful of marble sized time-bombs at the feet of the swat team. The glowing orbs caught their attention and exploded at their feet. They fell to the ground and the DJ ran past them toward the exit. Vincent, Colossus, Philip, Hideki and Kyle all followed behind.

One of the club goers that was an Anti-Mutant sympathizer realized what was happening and quickly took action. He turned to the crowd and shouted, “Hey they’re running from the HMR, they’ve got to be mutants!! Come on guys don’t let those freaks escape!! The man rallied several others into joining his cause and the group blocked the DJ and the X-men’s path.

Vincent and the group stopped. “Hey don’t hate on us guys. Jealousy never got anyone anywhere good.” Kyle said as clutched his fists and began to float a bit off of the ground, ready to attack.

Hideki smirked and flipped his pink vintage 90’s shades over his eyes, “Yeah bro, it’s time for some crowd control…” His hands began to generate sparkles as he prepared to fire at the opposition.

Vincent was appalled. “Have you two lost your minds? We’re X-men! We will not harm human civilians! Is that clear?” Vincent fussed at Hideki and Kyle.

Colossus shrugged his shoulders in confusion. “I agree Mr. Xavier, but how are we to be getting past our not so friendly friends?” Colossus asked.

DJ Flow looked back at the X-men, halfway turned but still keeping an eye on the angry mob before them. “You guys are the X-men huh? I’ve heard of you, I thought about joining your school once. You guys can’t hurt them, but I’m no X-man so your ideal little rule doesn’t apply to me.” DJ Flow commented and then touched his temples. He created sharp high pitched noises in the minds of those in their way. The other could not hear what those under DJ Flow’s telepathy could hear. The victims of DJ Flow’s psionic assault fell to the floor in pain and mental agony.

“I can’t hear anything.” Kyle commented.

Vincent replied, “Nor do you want to hear what they hear. Let’s go now. The Swat soldiers are getting up and it’s past time we leave.” The group, including DJ Flow, bolted past the staggering people and left the club. They all hopped in the X-van and sped off toward the mansion.

Once the group reached the mansion they all entered. Philip realized he hadn’t even asked the DJ if he wanted to come to the X-mansion or not. “I’m Sorry DJ Flow, I didn’t ask if you wanted me to drop you off somewhere before we returned here. I can drive you home if you want.” Philip said.

DJ Flow replied, “Please call me Alex, my name is Alex Minho. It’s late and I don’t much feel safe going back to my apartment while the government is after me. I mean, the bartender told me that those guys had a tip off that I was a mutant. Who knows if they know where I live?”

At that moment Professor Xavier approached the group. “You may stay here if you like Alex. I’m Professor Charles Xavier and this is my school for gifted students. I have been picking up a heightened level of mutant activity using Cerebro tonight. You also showed up in its files. You have a very unique gift Alex, with the right training, you needn’t fear for your safety. The X-men and I can help you.” Charles explained.

Alex felt at ease when he met the professor. “I think I’ll stick around for a while, at least until it’s safe. Until then I guess I can help out if you need it.” Alex replied.

Soon the group ran into Ryan, Annabelle and Jenifer. Alex (DJ Flow) was surprised to see Jenifer at the X-mansion. “Jenifer you’re here too?” He smiled, it was good to see a familiar face.

The professor had shook Jenifer’s hand. “It’s good to see Jenifer. I hope you feel we’ve taken good care of Annabelle.” After a few moments the professor explained what Fuyumi, Stinger, and Joanna had reported to him regarding the incident at the mall. “It seems that there has been increased discrimination against mutants by the government and the HMR. I want everyone to vigilant and try not to draw attention to your powers. I expect that we will also begin to see an increase of violence from both mutants and humans alike. We must remember that the X-men will strive to be a voice of reason in such times of chaos.” The professor explained to the group.


Magneto


“Where is the Professor, I would like to tell him of my arrival. As well as what has happened while I was gone.” Emily’s words came out a bit slurred

I believe Charles said he wanted to scan about using Cerebro tonight since he had some free time. He’s is most likely there. Earlier I had hoped that he and I could go out and get a bite to eat together but he’s a bit more of a workaholic than I am. We can go see him if you like. I’m sure he’d love to speak with you again.”

As Eric and Emily spoke casually he noticed Ace quietly approach the two. “Eric (giving him a brief nod then turned towards Emily) well it’s good to see you’re back Emily. And right on time too a lot of people are high-strung due to recent events so do bless us with that music of yours.” Patting Emily on her shoulder who smiled at Ace.

Emily smiled at the woman but then looked over towards Eric. “Who was that? I don’t think I know that woman. But would it be alright for me to play tonight is there anything you and the Professor think I should play?” she signed as well as spoke though not very loudly.

Eric chuckled a bit. “That’s Ace. I don’t know why she insists on wearing that clay mask about. Even Charles has trouble figuring her out.” Magneto joked. To most in the mansion, it was nice to see Magneto smiling and at ease. “It’s always very much a pleasure to her you play my dear. As for what to play… anything you like would be suitable. However if I had to choose, I’d say my personal favorite Sonata, Op. 72.” Eric smiled brightly, he was a true gentleman. When he wasn’t acting as a mutant dictator any woman could see his classy and gentlemanly appeal.


Logan, Sabertooth, David North, Pietro


Agent Six’s arm suddenly swung outwards one small finger pointed at Victors face. “Hush mutt, I can see” were her only words and they held no emotion to them.

Victor began to chuckle in a most sinister manner. “Who does that little bitch think she’s talking to?” He fought to speak through his laughter. Victor was surprised at the tiny mutant’s boldness as well insulted that she felt brave enough to threaten him.

David patted Victor on the shoulder. “Now now, watch your language. We’re in a school remember. Besides we have fun awaiting us. Take your frustration out through the right outlet.” He said with a smug smile as his hand slid from victor’s shoulder to his chest, formed a fist and gave him a light playful punch there. As they walked away he spoke to Canaan, “Later Tiger.”

A few moments later they arrived in the War room where Logan sat watching TV and drinking. “Logan… just who we wanted to see.” David said while smoothly striding over toward Logan. He playfully sat down on Logan’s lap and Logan quickly punched David in the kidney causing him to fall off to the floor. “AH!! FUCK Logan!! Ahhh…. Can’t you take a goddamn joke?! Oww… an adamantium fist to the fucking kidney….” David complained as he slowly stood to his feet. Had he not had a mutant healing factor he’d been seriously injured.

Logan replied with a playful smirk, “Well North, I can take a joke but given your track record I can never be too careful.” Logan winked at David and took another drink as he stood from the chair. “Alright you two, what do you want?”

Victor took a drink from one of the bottles Logan hadn’t yet touched. “We want to train in the danger room. We need you to open it for us.”

“Not without supervision you two don’t.” Logan replied taking another drink.

“Oh of course Logan. We want you to have a little sparring match with us. Gym equipment don’t fight back, and we’d ask someone else but David and I are afraid that we’d kill anyone else in a sparring match except you that is.” Victor replied with a grin.

Logan’s face lit up. “Well listen to you, ‘David and I’, you two have been around each other for waaay too long bub. Hahaha… Look I’ll do it but only because I’ve been itching for a chance to kick the shit out of you two lovebirds. Let’s go.” Logan replied and headed toward the Danger Room.

On the way there they ran into Pietro. “Hey what are you boys up to? It’s kinda weird seeing you three all chummy with one another. Really stop it.” Pietro joked, now walking with the group. After Logan explained the situation Pietro replied, “Oh… I’ve got to see this! I’ll operate the system from the control room. No worries my father taught me how to operate it all, of course we argued the whole time but whatever. However, won’t Cyclops flip a fat bitch over if he finds out?”

“You might be afraid of Scott I ain’t. I do, what I wanna do.” Logan replied and moved forward. They four entered the danger room and the fight between Logan, Victor and David was on.


Scott Summers and Jean Grey

Scott and Jean had went out on a quiet date. The two had seen a movie earlier and now they were finishing up dinner at their favorite restaurant. A member of the HMR had entered the restaurant and began to survey the patrons regarding their status. The owners could do nothing to prevent the survey due to government blocks on business countermeasures. “Jean this looks like trouble.” Scott said as he watched the representative approach their table.

Jean replied, “Scott I know exactly what that is and I’m not signing it.” She placed her cell phone into her purse in preparation to leave. Scott placed money down for the check.

“Excuse me may I have a bit of your time?” The HMR rep asked but continued on talking before Scott and Jean could respond. “I am performing a government issued survey regarding mutant status and registration. I’m going to ask if you would take a few moments to feel this out.”

“Umm… sure but I don’t have a pen on me. Honey do you have a pen in your purse?” Scott asked.

“Nope not at all.” Jean replied as she flipped open her small pocketbook to check superficially.

“Oh that’s alright I’ve come equipped with one.” The rep said with a big fake smile.

“It’s great to be prepared.” Jean replied in a snarky tone. She took the pen and clipboard and began to use her telekinesis to keep the ink from leaving the pen thus not appearing not to work. “It’s not writing. Uh oh…” Jean tried to hold back her smirk.

Scott looked down at his watch impatiently, “You know we really gotta go. Can you please hurry this up?”

“Funny this pen was just working. Well… let me ask a waiter for one, it’ll just be a moment folks.” The rep said nervously and hurried off to ask for a pen. Scott and Jean quickly left the restaurant and drove off in Scotts car.

“Gosh darn it. Why can’t we have one night out without hassle. I didn’t want to get caught up in any mutant human politics. I just wanted it to be me and you, watching movies, dining out, and making love. Mood killed…” Scott fussed in frustration as he drove them toward the mansion.

Jean giggled. “You really are more uptight since I left, Logan was right.” Jean replied.

Scott frowned up, “Logan said what? I knew I shouldn’t have encouraged you to skype with him while you were away. What else did the jerk say?” Scott was not very happy and he was embarrassed.

“Well he said you really missed me and that he could tell you needed to be close with someone you cared about a lot to make you feel better. And since I wasn’t able to be there, Logan was your next best friend although you’d hate to admit that.” Jean explained knowing Scott would get even fussier.

“What!? I did not!” Scott replied loudly.

Jean laughed aloud. “Your mind just said ‘oh shit… he picked up on that?’ so yes you did Scott. Look Logan told me you had even him worried with how much you started hanging about with him. You needed a friend, and Logan didn’t give you a hard time about it because he’s your friend too. I think your little bromance is cute.” Jean giggled.

Scott’s face turned red as he drove home. “Alright… alright It’s true okay. I missed you so much and It felt better to be around someone who… who understood exactly home much it felt to miss every second of Jean Grey when she’s not around. I hate to admit this but Logan is the only guy who knows how that feels.” Scott said in a calmer tone.

Jean grew silent as she was taken aback by Scott’s words. Logan’s affections for Jean were most always a taboo subject around Scott. Yet he was openly and honestly talking about it. This also made Jean fight to suppress her feelings for Logan. Jean loved Scott hands down, but Logan was a forbidden love for Jean, one she could never have. “I’m sorry for teasing you Scott. I understand. Logan didn’t mean any harm in what he said you know.”

Scott sighed, “I know. Looking back on it I should thank him for putting up with me huh.” Scott began to smile.

Jean replied just before she was about to get out of the now parked convertible, “Yeah I think Logan would greatly and silently appreciate that.” The two laughed and hugged as they walked into the mansion.

After Annabelle had introduced them, Jennifer spoke to Ryan. “Don’t worry, I near deafened you, you’re allowed to be pissed.” Jennifer shrugged with a lighthearted smile. Ryan laughed it off. "How could you have known my ears were highly sensitive? Just remember for next time, ok?" Ryan asked nicely, he smiled playfully.

Turning to Ryan, Ms. Ace lightly hit the back of his head. It didn't hurt too much, but she definitely let Ryan know what was on her mind. He pretended to rub it, as if it had actually hurt, and made an overly aggrieved face, his bottom lip hanging out as if she'd hit a puppy. “How many times do I have to tell you not to call me 'Ms.' in public. I’m not your teacher outside of the classroom; you make me feel old Tonto.” Despite her irritated words a slight smile formed on her face, glad that Ryan was alright. Ryan smiled, and laughed sheepishly. "Heh heh heh, Sorry, I won't do it again." He laughed. “I’d say sorry for the ride but I’m not that sentimental. Your teeth don’t bother me I’ve seen worse.” Ryan nodded. His apologetic attitude irritated some at the mansion, and endeared him to others.

One such mutant, Annabelle, smiled at Ryan when he reverted back to his human form. As she turned to look at something Ryan followed her gaze. It was Vincent and the others! Immediately a giant grin took over what was left of his face, Ryan bounded over to the group and tackled them, pulling them into a great big hug. "I'm so glad to see you! A lot happened today and I really wanted to be with you guys, and then..." Ryan said stopping himself and letting them go. He shyly took a step backwards. "I'm sorry about what happened down at the club you were at. They were going to arrest somebody inside just for being a mutant. It made me so angry... I... I just couldn't contain it any longer. I don't think I hurt anybody, but I'm sure I scared the crap out of at least one person." He chuckled sheepishly. "I didn't make too much trouble for you, did I?" he asked, looking to Vincent.

Just before anyone could explain the situation from their end to Ryan, Professor Xavier spoke up, warning them all of the incidents happening around town. He informed them of what was happening around the city, and it made Ryan angry. It was that same unreasonable anger that Ryan experienced down at the club. He shut his eyes and ground his teeth together. He balled his hands into fists. As much as he tried not to think about how stupid the HMR was, or what might happen to other mutants, he couldn't help himself. His ears began to lengthen and his eyes became slits. Scales began forming around his temples, and little nubby horns began to sprout there. His fingers slowly sharpened into claws and his canine teeth became longer. His eyes turned gold and then he noticed that several people had their eyes on him. He smiled shyly before reverting the process on his own. He slid his hands through his hair, which had returned to its not-so-shaggy state. "Sorry about that, I'm under control, it's ok." Ryan said reassuringly. Though he played it cool, Ryan was very worried. What about Memory and Jonathan, where were they on a night like tonight? What about Scott and Jean? They'd gone out together as well. Ryan hoped they were alright. As if to voice his concerns, Annabelle made herself known. “They’ll all be okay, won’t they?" she asked, telepathically. “There’s other schools and safe places, like with Miss Frost and the Morlocks.” Someone else spoke up, and alleviated Ryan's fears. Hopefully, no one else would have to suffer tonight.

Vincent, Philip, Hideki, Kyle, and Peter approached the group not long before Xavier informed everyone of the happenings around town. They saw the other congregated about and were relieved to see who was present. It seemed that anything was bound to happen tonight with out on the town and it was simply not safe for mutants. Vincent greeted everyone. “Evening all. I’m glad to see you all are safe and sound here. It’s a mad house out there.”

Ryan bounded over to the group and tackled them, pulling them into a great big hug. "I'm so glad to see you! A lot happened today and I really wanted to be with you guys, and then..." Kyle was glad to see Ryan but he was also vainly concerned about not messing up his model-esque hair style. Hideki was happy that Ryan was his jovial self yet sad that he couldn’t dance with them at the club like he wanted. Peter chuckled in happiness he liked Ryan’s vigor. Peter was a pretty positive guy and enjoyed being around those that were similar.

Ryan said stopping himself and letting them go. He shyly took a step backwards. "I'm sorry about what happened down at the club you were at. They were going to arrest somebody inside just for being a mutant. It made me so angry... I... I just couldn't contain it any longer. I don't think I hurt anybody, but I'm sure I scared the crap out of at least one person." He chuckled sheepishly. "I didn't make too much trouble for you, did I?" he asked, looking to Vincent.

DJ Flow replied, “The one under arrest was me. Thanks for saving me. You really helped me big time. I was freaking out back there.” He was grateful to Ryan for his aide.

After Charles’ explanation regarding the HMR’s activities, Ryan seemed to become quite upset. Vincent felt bad about all of this. He knew how he wished he could deal with the situation, with violence, but that way was the wrong way. He needed to remember to keep his feelings under control. Bad things were happening to mutants but the best way to overcome is to put your best foot forward and show the other side fairness and rightness. Once they open their eyes change will come. Vincent wished it was as simple as knocking a few bullies around and getting them to back off but this was far more complex and volatile a situation than that.

"Sorry about that, I'm under control, it's ok." Ryan said reassuringly. Vincent smiled at Ryan and placed a reassuring hand on Ryan’s shoulder.

Philip looked quite frustrated as well. He let out a rough sigh. “AHHH…. This is just so wrong! It’s things like this that make me wish I had not come to this country. Germany was bad but this is a completely different level.” Philip’s hand began to glow as he held on of his marble sized time bombs. He calmed himself and reabsorbed the energy before it detonated. He didn’t want to harm anyone nearby.

Charles then recommended that everyone try to take it easy in the mansion for the evening and avoid going out until he was able to do a probe of the city’s activities with Cerebro. Eric scanned the group with his eyes trying to get a check on who was there and who wasn’t. Scott, Jean, Logan, Pietro, Victor, David, Jonathan, Memory, Cain, Cara, Fuyumi, Wendy, Joanna, and Kent were all still not around. Charles reassured Eric. “Logan, Victor, David and Pietro are in the Danger Room although I am not the biggest fans of that particular combination of mutants being gathered there of all places. Fuyumi, Joanna, and Wendy are headed back from the mall. They should be back shortly. Scott and Jean just pulled up and are entering the mansion gates.

Just as Scott and Jean got out of the car, they encountered Cain and Cara. Scott turned to acknowledge the duo. “Ah Cain, Cara, It’s good to see you’re alright. You didn’t happen to have a run in with-” Scott was cut off by Cain.

“The Humans? Yes we fought a whole bar full of those monster homo-sapiens.” Cain replied trying to remain calm. He didn’t mean to put Scott and Jean off but tonight’s incident really angered him.

Scot arched an eyebrow, “Actually the term I was going to use was the House of Mutant Registration. However I see you have. We should inform the professor. It seems things are growing out of control about town tonight.”

Cain replied in a kinder manner, “He already knows so no worries. I’m glad that you and Jean are alright as well.” Cain gave a smile. He also once more grabbed hold of Cara’s hand, exchanging a glance with her. “You two should take it easy. Aren’t you still supposed to be on your date night?” Cain smirked.

Scott was quite surprised that he remembered from their earlier conversation. He seemed to notice Cain’s closeness with Cara. It was unusual for Cara to act so… submissive of sorts. Jean commented with a smile, “Indeed we are Mr. Lehnsherr. And it looks like we’re not the only ones.” Jean gave Cain and Cara a playful wink. “We should double date sometime.” Jean added.

Scott looked a bit nervous. He remembered the times when Cara flirted with him in a rather provocative manner. He was pretty sure she wasn’t serious and was trying to get a rise out of him, and she succeeded. Scott pretty vividly remembered the shadow mutant’s seductive touch on his body and how he almost gave into her wiles. Jean wasn’t blind to Scott’s experience and struggle with looking at Cara without being terrorized by that memory. However she was confident that Scott wouldn’t actually cross the line with Cara. They simply weren’t compatible. However if Cara was Emma Frost, Jean would worry some, but that was a different matter altogether. The Four entered the mansion and met with the professor and the others. Fuyumi, Wendy, and Joanna also returned to the mansion.

Meanwhile, in the Danger Room, things got quite heated in the fight between Logan, Sabertooth and David. Logan and Victor slashed at one another viciously, fists pounding each other into submission, bodies ready and raring to take such punishment, and keep going. David was almost untouchable taking pop-shots off of Logan, from the ground, walls, and ceiling, as he dealt with Victor’s brutal full frontal assault. “WHY YOU EGG SUCKING PIECE OF GUTTER TRASH!! You can’t have it out with me without your little boyfriend to hold your blood ridden hand huh? Fine by me bub!!” Logan retorted.

Victor replied in a sarcastic chuckle, “Well playtime is much more fun when you invite friends over Logan. You’d know that if you actually had any real friends.”

At that moment Pietro activated the Danger Room’s highest level of training exercises. The protocol however was altered to attack Sabertooth and David. An energy beam fired and connected with Victors back. Pietro taunted the duo from the control room. “Did I forget to mention that I was on Logan’s team? Oops~! HAHAHAHa…..”

“You little hyperactive traitor! What the hell do you think you’re doing?!” David replied angrily.

Pietro laughed maniacally, “Choosing the better side silly!! And I thought you were smart… I guess love really is blind huh North?”

David responded by pulling out a mini rocket and fired it at the control room window. The impact caused a huge explosion that made a boom that could be heard all over the mansion. The glass was nearly indestructible so fortunately for Pietro, he wasn’t hurt. Scott heard the noise and wiped around. “What the hell was that?” Scott asked.

“It came from the danger room.” Jean replied.

“Gosh can’t Wolverine ever stay out of trouble?” Kyle commented in a snarky manner.

“Look who’s talking Marvel…” Eric replied with a raised eyebrow. Kyle wasn’t the best for keeping out of trouble himself and everyone knew it.
