Quote1.png In the end, it was not your legendary fairy tale "goddess" who overthrew Apocalypse.

Quote1.png Drop the accusatory tone, Gambit. I haven't even touched him yet. All I've done is make him remember -- make him feel -- all the pain he's caused every person in his long, misspent life.

I thought it only fitting to allow him to experience it firsthand. Quote2.png
--Nathaniel Summers (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Then that's that. The world's saved. Stryfe's dead. We all live to see another day. Do we have any problem here, gentlemen? Quote2.png
