We had no trouble finding Gaia. The She-Witch and her army of alien demons were massed along the broad double street of Park Avenue in mid-town Manhattan. As we descended into the unusally cold dark air, her soldiers moved as one to stand between us and the power mad Gaia. But they did not attack. They merely formed an inpeneterable wall that we could not pass. She seemed to be waiting for something.

The X-Men's eyes turned to Cyclops but clearly he was paralyzed by indecision. Pathetic. Before the rest of us could move to attack though, Magdalena and Henchman appeared seemingly out of nowhere, right next to Gaia. The lunged at her.

Not much could be made out thought the mist, but before we knew it, Magdalena was flung lifeless from the center of the demons and landed atop a large cross on the Saint Patrick's Cathedral grounds. Then Henchman went sailing high into the air, quickly disappearing over the skyscrapers.

As one we surged against the demons, the strength of their numbers held all of us at bay though. All of us except for Vegeta, the Prince of the Sayians. Their battle was as ferocious as it was brief. Within moments, with a blinding burst of tremendous energy, Gaia threw Vegeta into a nearby building and it collapsed down upon him.

Iceman managed to get around the demons with his ice bridge but right before our very eyes, Gaia somehow changed the molecular make-up of his body and he shattered into a thousand pieces. We were stunned, unable to believe what we had just witnessed.

Cyclops was the first to react, much to my amazement. With a tortured howl he unleashed a massive optic blast, carving a passage through the aliens. He charged forward, running straight at Gaia. With a twisted laugh and a wave of her hand, her fiery gaze dissolved his body into a pile of ashes.

After all our years together and our long rivalry, Scott was dead. Several X-Men tried to charge through the gap he had made. "STOP!" I yelled. "No one cross the line!"

I will not see any more of our team die needlessly. Clearly Gaia must die. We need a plan.

Oohhh, now you decide to think of a plan. Just a thought for next time, but maybe you should come up with a plan before you go into battle. Tends to work much better that way.

Or were you just waiting for Scott to turn into a firey pile of ashes?

I've got an idea... Sneak attack, +8d6. I've got a light saber so that needs to be some sort of a bonus, right?

Ok you need a plan and I got one. You need someone to act as bait, maybe you can get Scooby and Shaggy, they will go and mock Gaia then lead her into the abandon warehouse. When she enters Fred will turn on the fan and blow honey all over Gaia. Then Daphne can dump the feathers on her from above and Thelma will trip Gaia and tie her up.


When Prof X come back and takes her to Mutant jail, Gaia will yell "And I would have gotten away with it if it wasn't for you meddling kids and AOC brilliant plan."
