Gaia and her team have returned from the Astral Plane after confronting the Shadow King. Everyone returned intact, more or less, but Shadow King is still at large. Obviously something is going to have to be done about him. First I want to get Magneto on his way, though. I certainly don't trust him but with Leech in the mansion, I am unable to use my telepathic powers to find out what he really wants and why he won't return to Avalon where his Brotherhood of Mutants are currently residing. At least I was able to get him out of the school for a couple of hours today.

Kitty Pryde discovered that the Smiling Baby Hitlers were playing a concert at the Westchester Civic Center tonight. This is the band that Pyro is playing with. He was a former student here but left to join the Brotherhood, as chronicled in the X-Men 2 movie. When Eric found out, he insisted on going. I reminded him that he hates loud vapid punk music. He responded that he wasn't going for the music but rather to confront Pyro.

We arrived at the concert just in time for the last song. Kitty insisted on coming with us and bringing Leech along. That, of course, defeated my entire purpose of going with Eric, which was, of course, to read his mind and find out what he was up to.

After the show, while Kitty chatted up the security guards, Eric, Leech and I went backstage to the dressing room. It was just as well that Leech was along, I thought for the first time, because Eric had murder in his eyes. I convinced Eric to let me try first with him.

"Hello John," I said to Pyro as he pulled off his purple afro wig.

"Yo', Professor X! Wass up!" he shouted at the top of his lungs. "Hey, Mags! How's it hangin'! Uh, hey man, that kid don't look so good. He's kind a green, you know?"

"That's alright," I answered, "Leech is suppose to look like that. I think. Anyway, that's not why we are here. John, I don't know what this silly music thing is all about but you are still enrolled in my school and it's very important that you complete your education."

"Hey man, Jim Morrison dropped outta high school. He did all right with this "silly music thing."

"Yes, and now Jim Morrison is dead. Do you see a connection?"

"What, you sayin' that if I drop outta school I'm gonna die? Then I say - Rock and Roll, man!"

"Now John, I don't think you are -"

"How on Earth could you name your band after that monster!?" Magneto exploded, cutting me off. "Do you have any idea what he did to my people?! To my parents?!"

"What? You mean that Hitler guy?" Pyro asked.

Magneto's face was turning bright red. He was shaking as he yelled, "Do you even know anything about the Holocaust!?"

"What, you mean that glowing energy dude in the see-thru yellow armor?" Pyro answered.

Then Eric turned to me. "What the hell are you teaching the children at your school, Charles?"

"Well, we focus more on the sciences and super-powered combat. I suppose we don't put quite enough emphasis on all -"

"That . . that . . that is totally irresponsible!" Eric shouted.

"Hey, chill out man," Pyro chimed in. "In the name he's, like, smiling, you know. And he's a baby. It's, like, um . . ironic, you know. I think that's the word."

Eric looked long and hard at Pyro and then shaking his head, turned and walked out. There was obviously nothing more I could do so I followed him. On our way back to the X-Van, Kitty bought one of the Smiling Baby Hitlers CD's in the lobby.

Magneto does have a point, unless of course the Smiling Baby Hitlers aren't actually named after that Hitler.

Actually Im kinda siding with Magneto on this matter. Pyro has been with the Brotherhood for some while before starting this band. In that time he should have learned, as if he didnt already know about Hitler, was a part of the cause of all of Magneto's problems with humanity.

Segregation of people because of what religion they are, skin color, different abilties, has always and will always be WRONG. I think Magento had the right to be mad at Pyro. I hope it all works out for him and that we hear what the heck is going on with the Shadow King.

And this is the problem with Magneto. His points seem so reasonable. And the next thing you know you've joined the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants and are trying to destroy all the humans.

Pyro has gone very Retro. Perhaps he should have been on the group Earth, Wind and Fire?

Well I must admit, Pyro's new style is rather odd. But it works for him I suppose. I feel for poor Eric. It was just dreadful that his underling would name a band after Hitler. Just as well, Eric throws thing entirely out of proportion. It amazes me they have yet to tear eachother apart.

Well don't I feel like the odd man out, dears. I am the only one here that has yet to get a blog. I suppose that is the curse of running an internation enterprise. Never enough time to tell of my life.

Poor Emma, I didnt know that you ran a international enterprise. That is actually pretty awesome of course that does hurt that you have to power to read minds and change their opinions, though I do hope you dont wear your uniform around the office (would make for an intersting Halloween costume next year).

If you actually do decide to throw up a blog around shoot me a line and ill help with the HTML code if you so desire. Of course Prof X can do it as well as I can but he might be busy should you choose to make a blog.
