That was Cyclops talking. He drones on like a blithering idiot. Why on Earth Xavier ever chose him as the leader of the X-Men I will never figure out. Under his watch the school was completely destroyed. The grounds are in ruin. Cities all over the planet are burning in destruction. The forces of Gaia have leveled unspeakable damage and all Cyclops can do is babble on like the incompetent he is.
The biggest disgrace is that the X-Men are having their big battle plan meeting in the conference room at the Motel 6. I should go back to Cairo.
"Hey everybody!" Elixir shouted with far too much enthusiasm as he burst into the room. "They just interrupted Jane and the Dragon to announce that Gaia is in Washington! She's like totally destroying the place. "
All eyes turned to Cyclops. He was frozen in panic.
"Well let's go get her!" Iceman shouted. "We can either talk her down or take her out!"
Cyclops looked around nervously. "Has anybody seen Magdalena? I mean she's kind of in charge."
"Yeah, I think she's with Henchman," Wolverine chuckled. Nightcrawler and Colossus started snickering. Simpletons.
"Oh great," Cyclops cried in despair. "What are we suppose to do now?"
Then he turned towards me and fell to his knees. He raised his arms high in the air in praise. "Oh mighty goddess Storm, please give me guidance!"
At least that's what he should have said. Worm.
I turned to Elixir. "Who interrupted the show?"
"SHIELD! They're sending a heli-carrier to pick us up!"
"Good. Then we go to confront her," I said.
Within moments we were on board the carrier headed for Washington. The ship was tracing Gaia's unique energy signal. Fred the Fox, Gaia's annoying pet rat was bouncing around as if he had eaten too much sugar.
"Damn," said Warbird. "The signal has changed. She's in Manhattan!"
The carrier turned us around and soon we were flying through the darkened skies of Manhattan. There before us was Gaia and a large contingent of her forces.
"Alright people, stay together!" that buffoon Cyclops called out. "If we do this by the book, we should all come out of it ok!"
