"It's been nice knowing you," I said to Dust. "My only regret is that I didn't get to kiss Oneida."
Just as Apocalypse started to fire at us, a brilliant ruby beam of light slammed into his chest and sent him flying backwards. He landed hard on his ass.
"Cyclops!" Dust shouted.
Apocalypse started to get up but a second red blast hit him. In an instant, Colossus was on top of him, grabbing his arms and pinning him. I reached over to Dust and laid hands on her. She quickly recovered from Big Blue's attack.
Cyclops ran up to Apocalypse. "What the hell are you doing?" he demanded.
In response, he threw his elbow back in Colossus's mid-section. Then he whirled around and smashed him hard in the face. Peter was stunned. Apocalypse turned to Cyclops.
"I have been sent on a mission. To destroy this school."
With that he quickly raised his arm, swatting Cyclops to the ground. He pointed at the school and deadly streams of pure energy lashed out, blasting into the side of the school. Thunderous explosions filled the air. Smoke and debris went flying everywhere.
Things weren't looking good.
