"I'm sorry for appearing so dramatically, Professor," said Gaia. "I know we had a plan and all to find out Pokey's true goals, but things just got too weird for me. I just had to get out of there."
"Why, what happened, my dear?"
"I . . I found out that Pokey is my . . brother." Gaia's head hung low.
"What? That's impossible."
"I saw the DNA test results, too," Jean said. "They clearly stated that the two of them are siblings."
"But how can that be?" I asked. "Apocalypse was born in Egypt . . 5,000 years ago!"
"The fact is, I don't really know much about my origins," Gaia replied. "I was trapped with the Universal Amalgamator for what seemed like an eternity. But there was really no time there. It was like it's own dimension."
"I understand but . . Apocalypse's sister!"
Everyone stood around silently for a few moments. Then Emma spoke up.
"You do realize it's entirely possible Pokey was just faking those test results."
"But why would he?" Gaia asked. "He already thought I was working for him as a Horseman. What would it gain him?"
"Why just to screw with you, my dear. He is a sadistic creep, you know."
"None of that matters now," said Quicksilver. We all turned to look at him. "That bastard is after my sister, the Scarlet Witch. We have to stop him!"
