Anyway, I was planning out our victory celebration when - oh, you see we X-Men like to have a grand fete after we've completed some monumental triumph. Defeating Mephisto on his home turf certainly qualifies.
Anyway, while I was in the amidst of securing the entertainment, a received a package by special courier. Though the envelope had no return address, it was post-marked from Hacknor. I knew immediately what it must be. Eagerly I ripped the it open and out fell my own personal invitation to -
Last Gladiator Standing. Truth be told, I had been looking forward to this for awhile. I hadn't had much interest in attending last year's competition - that sort of thing really isn't my sort of thing - but to my surprise I really had a lot of fun.
Of course my life was quite different back then. The Magdelina and I were involved in a rather serious relationship. We got to spend a lot of quality time together. Then of course I rushed off the save the galaxy and she hooked up with a want-a-be super-villain. Ah well.
I also met some rather interesting people at last year's games. I think it's open to anyone, by the way. If you're interested in playing, just let Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator know.
The other great advantage is getting to be free of the X-Men for awhile. I think I may just travel to Hacknor early.
