Those bastards won't get away with this!!

As I sat in my plastic chair moving the bits of green goo around my plate that the jailers at the Vault call dinner, I pondered the delicious ways I would get my revenge against that mongoloid, Joe Fixit. Who does he think he is attacking me in my home base? That brute is lucky that he caught me by surprise, otherwise I guarantee he would be dead right now. That would show him. The rumor is his attack was a work for hire. After I kill him, I must find out who paid him to hit me.

No wait, first I'll find out who paid him. Then I'll kill him. Yes, that sounds right.

I went back to thinking about all the different ways I would destroy Fixit. Suddenly a sound behind me woke me from my reverie.

"What are you smiling at Magneto?" said a gruff voice.

I turned around and saw Colonel Nick Fury of SHIELD with two guards standing at his side. Or is he General Fury now? I was about to say something insulting when Fury suddenly dropped to the floor. His leg spun around kicking out the feet of both guards next to him. As they fell, Fury reached out and grabbed their weapons - plastic energy guns. Before they knew what hit them, he had zapped both guards. Then Fury changed into Mystique.

"So if you could do that all along, why did you make Xavier rescue me several months ago?" I asked.

"I like to make good people do bad things," she answered. "Keeps them humble."

"Well he could certainly use some of that. Now then, what's your plan for getting me out of here?"

"Haven't you ever seen a James Bond movie?"

A light bulb appeared over my head and glowed to life. I stripped off my prison garb and put on one of the guard's uniforms.

"Not that I'm not grateful, but I thought we were on the outs. Why the rescue?"

"A certain Dr. Rao has developed a so-called "cure" for mutations. She's unveiling it this afternoon at a public press conference in Manhattan."

My face went pale. I knew those genetic hate-mongers would come up with something like this eventually. How dare they! The arrogance . . like we need curing!

"And the rest of the Brotherhood?" I asked coldly as we headed to the exit.

"Sabertooth and Master Mind are already in position. And we have a rather special ally." A mischevious smile played on Mystique's lips.

"Who?"

"Dark Phoenix."

Victory will be mine!
