Re: News & Discussion Thread - Part 1
I don't know what draft you're talking about, but the version I read was pretty much Barry Windsor-Smiths Weapon X come to life, and they did ground it a fair bit. Making him born in the 50s instead of the mid 19th century, reducing him to only serving in Vietnam, cutting back on the number of mutants, no Team-X. Really, the only two bits that were "out there" was the Blob, and the fact that Weapon 11 was a squadron of clones.
Everything else seemed like a great prequel to what we saw in X-2.
"The smell was something he was born with. A curse, the smallfolk said. The gods had made him stink so that men would know his soul was rotting. Ramsay’s mother appeared at my gates to demand that I provide a servant for my bastard, who was growing up wild and unruly. I gave her Reek. It was meant to be amusing, but he and Ramsay became inseparable. I do wonder, though... was it Ramsay who corrupted Reek, or Reek Ramsay? ”
