groan "Hello Logan," I said with a sigh as I closed my laptop. No reason for Wolverine to see what I was working on. It would take too long to explain why I host a Vampirella fan site.
"You got a minute?"
"For my star player? Of course. What can I do for you?"
"Now that Wade's little game is over, you got to do the Amazing Mutant Race again."
"What?" I said with a start. "I'm not doing that again."
"You got to. You said once Deadpool did his thing, you would do another Race."
"No Wolverine. What I said was that I wouldn't do it while Deadpool was doing his game. Just to clarify, I also won't do it when he's not doing a game."
"Oh sure! You get to go off and do that cool Last Gladiator show, leavin' me an' Storm in charge a this school."
"Belive me Logan, if I had any idea you wanted to go, I would -"
"And last year you let non-mutants play! That little green fortune cookie an' the hot soldier chick won! They ain't even mutants! The title says Amazing Mutant Race! You owe me!"
"Logan, do you have any idea how much work putting on one of those things is? I really don't-"
"Damnit, Chuck, I'm the back-bone of this team! All these teams! If you don't do it, I'm gonna join the Avengers full time!"
"You wouldn't dare!"
The evil snarl on his face left me little doubt as to his resolve. " . . fine. I'll do another Race. But after the holidays."
"Fine. An' no non-mutants."
"No. The Race will be open to anyone who wants to play, mutant, human, alien or whatever."
"But it's the Amazing Mutant Race!"
"I'll have to think about that."
