"Martian Manhunter? Why do you call yourself that?" I asked.

"Well, I'm from Mars for one thing."

"You mean Mars, Arizona?" Angel started rolling his eyes for some reason. I shot him a nasty look.

"No, the planet Mars. You know, next one out from the Earth."

I looked at the tall green man for a moment. Obviously he was still delusional.

"Can I ask you something?" Sage said to the Manhunter. He nodded. "If your weakness is fire, then why do you wear a costume that is just suspenders? You leave quite a lot of your skin exposed."

The Manhunter looked at Sage like she was from Mars. "I spend three hours a day in the Watchtower gym lifting weights to get my body this buff. Do you really think I'm going to cover it up? How would anyone know how great my build is?"

Sage looked over at Angel and he just shrugged. I was about to say something, I'm not quite sure what, when the alarm sounded that the X-Jet was landing in the hanger. I went to check it out.

Iceman, Beast and Shadowcat were just disembarking as I walked up. "So, did you slackers have a good time at Disneyland?"

"Oh dude, it was terrible," Iceman said. "There lines a mile long. Poor Hank was getting swamped for autographs everywhere we went. We only managed to get on Space Mountain like 3 times."

"Yeah, that's terrible," I said in my most sarcastic voice. I was about to chide them for going off to an amusement park during a major battle when I heard the front door bell ring. I'd have to save the leadership thing for later.

On my way up to the front door I bumped into Nightcrawler. "Zay Cyclops, did you book zee singing act for zee party tonight?"

"Why yes I did, Kurt. One of the hottest talents around."

"Zen I zink zee agency sent you zee wrong guy. Zee guy here iz a total lozer."

"They didn't send Justin Guarini?" I asked.

"Oh. You mean zis guy you booked on purpose? No, zhen zhey zent ze right guy."

Nightcrawler walked off shaking his head. What's wrong with these people?

I met Mr. Guarini at the door and showed him into the ballroom. Colossus, Gambit and Jubilee were already setting out the food there. Checking the kitchen I found Elixir and Dust mixing the punch.

Oh yeah, this is going to be a great party.
