When the door to my office banged open, it sounded like an atom bomb had gone off. An elephant in heavy boots stomped across the floor towards me. A terrible wailing erupted from the beast that almost knocked me out of my chair.

"Charles, have you been drinking again?" the elephant asked.

My eyelids fluttered as I tried to focus on the shapee before me. After a moment I said, "Oh, Maggie. Well, I may have a had, um, a few blinks but that doesn't mean I've been drinking."

"Blinks? You're drunk!" she said with a laugh.

"I'll have you know it takes more than . . a few little drinks . . to get me drunk."

"Well there is an empty bottle of cognac on your desk. That would be enough to get you drunk."

"If I were drunk, my dear, could I do this?"

"That certainly is an impressive skill my love, but there is a very serious crisis that has to be addressed."

"Oh there's always some crisis. Crisis is the routine. Why do you think I drink?"

Maggie just rolled her eyes. "I just have two words for you. Dark Phoenix."

That certainly got my attention. The surge of adreline helped to clear my head. "What's happened?"

"Oh, so now you care? Well I'll tell you, Jean as been taken over by the Dark Phoenix again and she has gone on a rampage."

"I've been seeing the signs but I just chose to ignore them. Blast! Where has she gone?"

"That's the thing we aren't quite clear on. The Cuckoo Sisters seem to think she might be after Trunks but Gaia said she was after a Jedi."

"A Jedi?"

"Yes. They are a powerful alien religious order that maintains peace in a far away galaxy."

"Far away? Well that's relief. She can't really hurt us then."

"Charles! We can't let Jean destroy people, even if they are aliens. Gaia has followed her through a wormhole. We have to do something!"

I let a long sigh. "I know. I was just kidding." After a moment's thought, I snapped my fingers. "I think I know just who to call for help. The Starjammers."

Awww she's not coming me? Pffft! And I thought I was in for a good fight. I guess I won't even get a chance to use my..... insurance policy in this timeline.

My son There is confidence, then there is stupidity. I think you should stop goading the Dark Phoniex

I don't trust these Starjammers they have a Summers on them. I would have gone for the Legion of Superheroes.

Well, we do hope they can help.

Miss Grey is awful powerful.

Especially when aided and posessed by the Dark Phoenix.

This should get interesting.

Rarely do I agree with Deadpool, yet I am compelled to in this case. Go with the Starjammers only if you want to hang out with a boring dud.
