The battle was growing heated. Kodiak was hell-bent on killing me. The X-Men stood in a line between me and him. I could see that some outside force was having an influence on him, but I wasn't able to sever it. The connection was elusive. I would need some time to get a clear grasp of whatever bond it was that had enslaved Kodiak. He wasn't going to be giving me that time.

Cyclops howled in rage. Kodiak had destroyed his new sports car. I was actually glad to see that Scott had gotten angry. Before Fade's efforts in toughening him up, Scott would just have gone fetal at this point. Instead he was unleashing his full-force optic blast at Kodiak.

The best efforts of the X-Men didn't seem to be slowing the feral savage Kodiak down much, though. As he made his way through my troops back towards my office, there was a strange knock on the remains of my doorway.

I spun around to see a young man dressed in a brown button downed short-sleeve shirt and matching shorts. "Delivery for Professor X!" he called out.

"Just leave it!" I shouted back to the UPS man.

"Sorry, you got to sign," he replied, hurrying over to me with an outstretched pen.

With a sigh I took it and signed his form. I quickly tore open the envelope and found this inside.

Oh it is, Henchie. Hence the words "remains of my doorway." You will be getting the bill any day now.

What, I didn't do anything. It was Reed, it's all his fault.
