After I had just deleted my umpteenth e-mail promising phenomenal profit returns for some penny stock I had never heard of, I came upon a message that sent a chill down my spine. A really, really cold chill. It was from Cassandra Nova.
For those of you who don't know, I have a sister. Had a sister. Have a sister, apparently. A twin sister. I've actually killed her twice now but it looks like she's back again. Sigh. While I appreciate that we can always get Jean or Colossus back fairly promptly when then get killed, it seems the bad guys get to come back too. And my sister is bad. You don't think I would have killed her twice otherwise, do you?
The first time I did her in was actually when we were both still in the womb. I was barely sentient so I don't think I can really be blamed for that one. I could just feel how evil she was so I used my psionic powers (my little baby fetal powers) to do her in. She was still-born but she quickly recovered.
The second time I killed her was after she had launched a genocidal attack on mutants. She murdered thousands of us. In case I didn't mention it, she is evil. So I shot her. Six times. She was definitely dead. But once again she quickly recovered. That's how it goes in my world.
After our last battle we had managed to trap her consciousness in an alien named Stuff. Apparently she escaped and is now coming back to haunt me.
Unless . . (quickly checks the calendar) . . blast! April 1st has already passed. Ok, so it's Cassandra Nova, my evil and incredibly powerful twin sister. I suggest you all seek shelter now.
