The Fury will catch you as you land, in a monofilament spider-web. Before you can escape, it will fillet the flesh from your bones… faster and more expertly than an angler guts his fish. You won't die, though I suspect you'll wish you could.
More importantly, you'll be useless to us.

Uncanny X-Men

Quote1 There were those among us who wanted only vengeance. They wanted the scales balanced in fire and blood, life for life! But the X-Men stood for something better. They never lost hope, no matter what. Because of them, Professor Xavier's dream -- of a world where normal and mutant could live in peace and fellowship, where there wouldn't be any distinction between them -- we'd all just be human -- never died. If you turn away from that dream, Kurt, you'll do more damage than you know. We may be doomed -- ours may be a lost cause -- but sometimes the way we live and die are more important than the simple fact of it. Give up now, and all those sacrifices -- in my world as much as yours -- will have been for nothing! Quote2
