CHRISTMAS! Presents! And an ICE-TREE to top it off. They're reveling in it...and in the HUMANS' adulation! While the world is filled with human and mutant monsters...who want nothing more than their destruction!
Money makes executive decisions. It's easier to handle at that level. The X-Men aren't just a bunch of costumed kids anymore, secretly operating out of a private school. We've lost that innocence,Storm. Our responsibilites are to the brand identity, and we need to insure a global aproach. We're operating on every front imaginable and we can't afford loose cannons screwing up the works, no matter how noble their intentions. We have a message to bring to the world and we won't tolerate the slightest deviation. The stakes are too high.
Our world has been distorted. Much like the one you just returned from. Its natural course has been interfered with. I must rectify that. The reality-bending witch Wanda Maximoff said 'No more mutants' and our people were devastated, reduced to less than 200 planetwide. In that moment the natural evolution intended for this world was shattered. I'm going to set this all right... I'm going to reset evolution.
Yes, but, you don't know why. Not really. Because I came here from the past, got stuck here, and I got a real good look at the nightmare that my life will become. And that is not exaggeration. That is fact. The story of me takes a horrible, horrible turn somewhere down the line. While everyone was focused on Jean and Scott, I did a little digging into me. And it's so bad. First no one would actually talk to me about me, which was unnerving... Then I met me. I actually met myself. And it scared the living Hell out of me. So I said to myself, the first legitimate chance I have at making me different... The first chance I get... I would take it. And I took it. This--This is my do-over. Can you relate to this, at all?
'Possibility. A word that can mean literally anything. But what makes us seek out possibility? What inspires us to say farewell to comfort... and seek out... more? Is it the opportunity to reach for the stars toward a common goal? Is it the chance to be the best version of yourself? Or is it merely natural to want the next big evolution? Whatever it is that's next -- let's discover it together. Hello, and welcome to X-Corp. We're Simply Superior.'
