    X-Men: The Series

    Episode 101- “Hated”

    By: owen_2006_294 and Boba_Fett_123

    FADE IN:

    INT. PRYDE HOUSEHOLD-DEERFIELD-DAY

    A 15-year old girl, KITTY PRYDE, enters her kitchen. She is a little below average height, her long brown hair back in a ponytail. She goes to grab a soda from a fridge.

    KITTY PRYDE
    Mom, I’m home!

    Voices are heard from the living room. One belongs to Kitty’s mother, TERRI, while the other two are not familiar to Kitty.

    TERRI (OS)
    Katherine, can you come out here for a minute?

    KITTY PRYDE
    Sure, Mom.

    Setting her soda on the kitchen table, she enters the living room.

    INT. LIVING ROOM

    Terri sits with a man and woman, each in their early twenties.

    KITTY PRYDE
    Whatever it is, I didn’t do it.

    WOMAN
    You’re not in any trouble. My name’s Jean Grey. (she motions to the man next to her, wearing ruby sunglasses) This is Scott Summers.

    Kitty slowly walks over to sit on the arm of a chair.

    TERRI
    Would you like something to drink, Mr. Summers?


    SCOTT
    A glass of water, if it’s not any trouble, ma’am.

    Terri smiles.

    TERRI
    Miss Grey?

    JEAN
    No, thank you.

    TERRI
    I’ll be right back.

    She goes into the kitchen.

    KITTY PRYDE
    So if I’m not in any trouble, what are you doing here?

    SCOTT
    We’re here to offer you a place at our school. Xavier’s School for Gifted Children.

    KITTY PRYDE
    I’m…not really all that gifted. B+ student, really.

    JEAN
    Not like that. There are people who have special powers, due to their genetic makeup. They can be any kind of powers—telepathy, pyrokinesis, weather manipulation.

    KITTY PRYDE
    You mean mutants?

    SCOTT
    Yes.

    JEAN
    But you need to forget everything you’ve heard about mutants.

    SCOTT
    We’re not all evil.

    KITTY PRYDE
    You guys are mutants.

    JEAN
    Not just us.

    KITTY PRYDE
    I’m not a mutant!

    JEAN
    Your mother tells us that you get headaches sometimes. That you find yourself suddenly in a different room.

    KITTY PRYDE
    I—I don’t believe you.

    She turns to Scott.

    KITTY PRYDE
    Why don’t you take off your glasses?

    SCOTT
    I can’t.

    KITTY PRYDE
    Why not?

    Jean smiles.

    JEAN
    (telepathically)
    Because if he did, the solar energy those glasses are holding back would punch a hole in your house.

    Kitty’s eyes widen.

    KITTY PRYDE
    Okay. You were just talking in my head.

    JEAN
    Telepath. Believe us now?

    KITTY PRYDE
    The…the whole headache thing has been happening for a while, now. Am…I’m a teleporter?

    SCOTT
    No. It’s more like you can walk through walls.


    KITTY PRYDE
    Oh. Cool.

    Terri comes back in.

    TERRI
    You told her?

    JEAN
    Yes. She’s taking it very well.

    Jean smiles at Kitty.

    SCOTT
    You’re going to let her come with us?

    A communicator beeps at Scott’s side.

    SCOTT
    Excuse me. Jean will explain everything, Ms. Pryde.

    Scott exits.

    EXT. PRYDE HOUSEHOLD-DAY

    Scott holds the communicator to his ear, like a cell phone.

    SCOTT
    Professor?

    XAVIER (V/O)
    Scott. Have you gotten Katherine yet?

    SCOTT
    Just about. What’s the problem?

    XAVIER (V/O)
    The Sentinels have followed you.

    A look of panic falls over Scott’s face.

    SCOTT
    What about the others?

    XAVIER (V/O)
    Apparently, the Sentinels haven’t noticed them yet. Though Magneto may have.
    SCOTT
    We’ll be gone in ten minutes.

    XAVIER (V/O)
    Good luck.

    Scott hangs up, re-enters the house.

    INT. LIVING ROOM

    Scott stands behind Jean.

    SCOTT
    I’m sorry, Ms. Pryde, but if it’s at all possible, we need to leave quickly.

    TERRI
    What’s wrong?

    JEAN
    Sentinels.

    She looks up to Scott.

    JEAN
    It’s the Sentinels, isn’t it?

    Scott nods.

    TERRI
    Those things from the news?

    KITTY PRYDE
    They’re here for me?

    JEAN
    They’re here for all of us.

    SCOTT
    She’s in danger here, Ms. Pryde.

    TERRI
    Please, keep her safe.

    Kitty looks to Terri.


    KITTY PRYDE
    I’m going to this school?

    TERRI
    It’s for the best.

    Fighting back tears, Terri hugs Kitty.

    TERRI
    Be careful.

    KITTY PRYDE
    Will I see you again?

    TERRI
    Of course you will.

    Kitty turns back to Scott.

    SCOTT
    You ready?

    KITTY PRYDE
    Uh-huh.

    They exit the house.

    EXT. PRYDE HOUSEHOLD-DAY

    On the lawn is the Blackbird, the X-Men’s personal jet.

    KITTY PRYDE
    Whoa. How did I miss that?

    Jean smiles.

    JEAN
    You didn’t. It just got here.

    The ground rumbles.

    SCOTT
    No, not now…

    KITTY PRYDE
    What is it?

    A house across the street explodes as three Sentinels come right through it. They are 18 feet tall, silver, with glowing violet eyes. Dangerous.

    SCOTT
    Jean, get Kitty on board!

    One of the Sentinels raises its hand toward Scott.

    SCOTT
    Go!

    Scott rips off his glasses, a wave of energy pouring from his eyes and knocking the Sentinel back into the other two.

    The jet starts up. Putting his glasses back on, Scott jumps on. It takes off.

    INT. JET

    Kitty sits down. A man speaks from the shadows, startling her. WOLVERINE.

    WOLVERINE
    Where next?

    EXT. LOS ANGELES-DAY

    Establishing shot.

    INT. MALL

    A 16-year old Chinese-American, Jubilation Lee (JUBILEE), runs through the mall, pursued by two Rent-a-cops.

    She quickly runs past a man, face concealed by a cowboy hat, and a black woman with long white hair.

    MAN
    That her?

    WOMAN
    That’s her.

    They watch Jubilee run into the distance, pursued by the security guards.

    The woman looks at the man, shaking her head.

    WOMAN
    Logan, why do you insist on wearing that thing?

    WOLVERINE
    What? I was trying to be inconspicuous.

    WOMAN
    It’s not working. Let’s go.

    They quickly follow the guards.

    INT. HALLWAY

    Jubilee quickly runs down an empty corridor, and out the door.

    EXT. ALLEY

    She soon realizes it’s a dead end.

    JUBILEE
    You gotta be kidding me!

    She turns and quickly tries to grab the door before it closes, but misses. The door locks her outside.

    Jubilee begins to pace back and forth, nervously.

    JUBILEE
    I’m not going to panic. It’ll be fine. I’ll explain to them that I didn’t steal anything. It’s all one big misunderstanding, that’s all.


    VOICE (OS)
    What is a big misunderstanding?

    Jubilee turns to see a tall, muscular man walking toward her.

    JUBILEE
    Nothing.

    MAN
    What is wrong?

    Jubilee doesn’t speak.

    MAN
    Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Piotr Rasputin. You are Jubilee?

    Jubilee nods.

    PIOTR
    I was sent to find you. You’re not in trouble.

    JUBILEE
    Easy for you to say.

    PIOTR
    Are you in trouble?

    JUBILEE
    Big time. A couple of security guards saw me blow up an arcade machine, which totally wasn’t my fault, like that even matters to them, and so they chased me like, halfway across the friggin’ mall, and then I get down here, all over a complete accident—

    Jubilee stops.

    JUBILEE
    Sorry. Sometimes I talk too much.

    PIOTR
    Everything will be fine. I can protect you. My leader wants you to join his cause.

    JUBILEE
    “His cause”? What are you, in some kind of cult, or something?

    He laughs.

    PIOTR
    No.

    He stops in front of her.

    PIOTR
    He wants you to join the Brotherhood of Mutants.
    Suddenly, the door opens. The man and woman, Wolverine and STORM, walk out. Piotr turns to them.

    PIOTR
    I am sorry, my friends. You are too late.

    WOLVERINE
    Whatever, Colossus.

    STORM
    It is her choice to decide whether she wants to come with us, or with you.

    PIOTR
    But if she chooses me, you would put up a fight, da?

    Wolverine pops his claws.

    WOLVERINE
    Got that right.

    STORM
    Logan!

    Wolverine leaps at COLOSSUS. Colossus turns to organic steel as Wolverine is airborne, and swats him away like a bug, sending him flying into a dumpster. The dumpster is dented a bit. Logan stands up, cracks his neck, and charges again at Colossus. Colossus grabs Wolverine and runs and smashes him into the wall. Storm runs over to Jubilee.

    STORM
    Miss Lee, please trust us when we say we are not the bad guys here.

    Jubilee stands in shock as Colossus and Wolverine continue to fight. Storm grabs Jubilee by the shoulders.

    STORM
    Please, will you come with us?

    Jubilee nods. Jubilee and Storm wait until the right moment and rush past the battle that is still going on. A SNIKT echoes as Logan’s claws sheathe underneath his skin, once again. He lets out a feral scream as he pushes Piotr with all of his might backwards, smashing into the dumpster. Jubilee stays behind for a couple more seconds. Piotr grabs Logan by the head and head butts him, sending Logan a little bit off balance for a second. Then, he grabs Logan and throws him into a chain-link fence. Fatigue begins to set in as Logan’s movements are beginning to slow down. Jubilee watches in horror, as Piotr grabs Logan and prepares to do a final move, that could possibly kill Logan.

    JUBILEE
    No! STOP IT!! Leave him alone!


    She screams and grabs Colossus, shocking him with her “fireworks”. He loses grip on Logan, who falls to the ground for a second. Colossus knocks Jubilee aside, then passes out.

    Logan slowly gets up. Storm runs over to him, and he puts his arm over her shoulder.

    WOLVERINE
    Kid’s got spunk, ‘roro. I’ll give her that.

    His healing ability begins to work, and soon the bruises caused by Colossus begin to vanish.

    STORM
    Logan, we have to get out of here.

    Jubilee begins to stagger from exhaustion and falls backwards, fainting. Logan runs and catches her and stands up as he carries her in his arms. He looks over at Piotr, who is not in his metal form any longer, and knocked out for the moment.

    WOLVERINE
    Let’s go.

    Logan, carrying Jubilee, and Ororo quickly exit the alleyway.

    EXT. ALLEY-CALDECOTT, MISSISSIPPI

    A 16 year old girl, ROGUE ADLER, is running down an alley from a crowd of people. She ducks behind a dumpster and watches as the crowd passes it. She lets out a sigh.

    ROGUE
    That was too close…

    Suddenly, a hand shoots forth and grabs her by the arm, dragging her out from behind the dumpster.

    ROGUE
    NO! Let go of me!

    MAN #1
    She’s right here.

    He signals to the rest of the crowd.

    Rogue tries to pull away from the man. As she struggles to get free, one of her gloves slips off. She’s able to break free for a second. The man grabs her hand again, this time grabbing the ungloved hand.

    ROGUE
    No!

    The man begins to show signs of fatigue and exhaustion. Then, he lets go and falls to the ground convulsing. It’s almost like a fish out of a water, the way he keeps shaking non-stop now. A WOMAN, instantly, rushes to the man’s side and checks for his pulse. The woman lets out a sigh of relief, at the fact that there is a pulse. It’s there but it’s becoming very faint.

    WOMAN
    Someone call 911!

    Rogue walks backward.

    ROGUE
    Ah didn’t mean to! It was an a-accident!

    Another MAN steps forward from the crowd and points at Rogue.

    MAN #2
    She did this!

    Rogue, regaining her senses, turns and runs away from the crowd once again. Five guys run after her and overcome her. Two of them grab Rogue by her arms.

    ROGUE
    (crying)
    No!

    MAN #3
    Shut up!

    He backhands Rogue, dragging her over to the crowd, then backhands her again, sending her to the ground. Rogue stays there with tears running down her cheeks. A figure walks out from the shadows. It’s an 18 year old man, REMY LeBEAU (GAMBIT), with dark brown hair and red eyes. He’s dressed in dark brown pants, with a black collared shirt, underneath a long dark brown trench coat with fingerless gloves on his hands. He begins to shuffle a deck of cards in his hands.

    GAMBIT
    I think ya’ll should leave the lady alone.

    One of the five guys take a step towards him, while the rest of the crowd stays back.

    MAN #2
    Why’s that? You ain’t from around here; why should we lissen to you? She killed a man!

    GAMBIT
    You’re right, I’m not from ‘round here. But I don’t think ya’ll know for sure if that man’s really dead.

    MAN #3
    Well, you should know that in this town, we’re the judge and jury.

    MAN #4
    Tha’s right, Cajun. And we hereby convict this lady of murder!

    GAMBIT
    An’ what are you gonna do to her?

    MAN #2
    We’re gonna lynch her.

    GAMBIT
    Right. An’ that’s ‘cause she’s a mutant, right?

    MAN #4
    Never said that. But yeah, that ‘bout covers it.

    GAMBIT
    (stepping back)
    You see, where I come from, no one treats a lady like that. We Cajuns treat the ladies wit’ respect.

    Gambit winks at Rogue.

    GAMBIT
    You’re free to come wit’ me, chére.

    Another man walks into the alley behind Gambit. He’s dressed in a pair of dark brown pants with a trench coat. This is HENRY “HANK” McCOY (BEAST), named so for the fact that he is covered in dark blue fur.

    HANK
    I agree with the lad, gentlemen.

    MAN #3
    You two are gonna stop us?

    Gambit and Hank look at each other for a moment, then they look back at the men.

    GAMBIT
    Tha’s right.

    BEAST
    I’m afraid we will. But, of course, we don’t have to do this the hard way. You could just let the girl come with us. It’s really up to you.

    Gambit’s still shuffling the deck of cards in his hands as he waits for an answer.

    MAN #4
    Well, we’re not gonna let that happen!

    One of the five men charges at Gambit while another charges at Hank. Gambit takes another step back and throws one of his cards. The card explodes in mid air sending the man flying backwards. Hank jumps into the air and kicks his man backwards.

    MAN #5
    Get ‘im!

    Hank smirks.

    BEAST
    I’m afraid your friends have deserted you.

    The man spins around. Everyone else has vanished.

    GAMBIT
    Still feelin’ lucky?

    The man takes off the other direction.

    BEAST
    So ignorant. Whatever happened to Southern hospitality?

    Gambit smirks.

    GAMBIT
    Dunno ‘bout you, but Gambit still got plenty of that.

    Gambit reaches down to Rogue.

    GAMBIT
    Here, chére.

    He helps Rogue to her feet.

    ROGUE
    (blushing)
    Th-thank you.

    Gambit puts his arm around her.

    BEAST
    You’re safe now. We’re taking you with us.

    Gambit, Rogue, and Beast exit the alley.

    EXT. SKY

    The X-Jet takes off.

    EXT. XAVIER SCHOOL-DAY

    The X-Jet lands beneath the basketball court. Everyone gets out.

    INT. MANSION-FOYER

    The new mutants sit down with BOBBY DRAKE.

    KITTY PRYDE
    They get you, too?

    BOBBY DRAKE
    Yeah, yesterday.

    PROFESSOR CHARLES XAVIER enters the foyer. The X-Men go to stand behind them.

    XAVIER
    Welcome. I am Professor Charles Xavier. You are here, partly to learn how to use your abilities responsibly, in order to better humanity. But you are also here because your lives are threatened. Kitty, you were attacked by Sentinels when Scott and Jean came to get you.

    Xavier looks at each of them.

    XAVIER
    These Sentinels have been prowling the country for a week, hunting and killing mutants. You are only the first of many that will need saving.

    Suddenly, a loud blaring rings through the mansion.

    CYCLOPS
    The War Room!

    XAVIER
    No need. It’s Magneto.

    INT. WAR ROOM

    The X-Men enter.

    XAVIER
    It’s just as I feared. Magneto and the Brotherhood are attacking Washington, D.C.

    JEAN GREY
    How did you know, Professor?

    XAVIER
    Magneto and I have a unique psychic bond, Jean. I could sense it when he went there. I’ve been expecting this since the Sentinels showed up. Magneto could not take something like that so likely.

    CYCLOPS
    But he’s been underground for so long. Why now?

    XAVIER
    Why not now? Magneto is hoping to make a statement. I fear there is very little we can do to stop him succeeding now.

    WOLVERINE
    Then what are we sittin’ here yappin’ for?

    Cyclops smiles.

    CYCLOPS
    X-Men, suit up.

    INT. READY ROOM

    The X-Men each don their uniforms, black leather with different color piping for each member. Beast wears a jacket and pants, rather than a jumpsuit, and no boots. Gambit wears his trench coat over his jumpsuit.

    EXT. X-MANSION

    The X-Jet takes off.

    FADE OUT.

    TO BE CONCLUDED…

    X-Men: The Series

    Episode 102- “Feared”

    By Boba_Fett_123

    FADE IN:

    EXT. WASHINGTON MONUMENT-EVENING

    MAGNETO and his BROTHERHOOD OF MUTANTS attack the Washington monument. Magneto and POLARIS use their powers to send telephone poles at police. MYSTIQUE simply starts shooting at them, and TOAD uses his extensive martial arts skills to take on three of the police officers. COLOSSUS uses his brute strength to pummel them.

    MAGNETO
    Look at this! They send the Sentinels after us, and yet still their police try to arrest us!

    POLARIS
    This is getting old, Father. You promised me destruction.

    Magneto smiles.

    MAGNETO
    And I shall give you destruction.

    Magneto rises from the ground, spins to face the monument.

    MAGNETO
    I’ve been saving up for this.

    Magneto stretches out with his arms, straining a great deal. The ground around the monument begins to crack and split.

    EXT. SKY OVER MARYLAND-EVENING

    The X-JET zooms toward Washington.

    INT. X-JET

    CYCLOPS pilots the jet, JEAN GREY in the copilot’s seat. Behind them are WOLVERINE, GAMBIT, STORM, and BEAST. Storm points.

    STORM
    Look!

    GAMBIT
    Damn. This guy’s got style.

    Even from their altitude, the X-Men can see Magneto attempting to remove the monument from its foundations.

    CYCLOPS
    We gotta stop him. Jean, can you do anything?

    JEAN GREY
    Not something that big.

    CYCLOPS
    Storm, give us snow.

    STORM
    Coming right up.

    Cyclops looks back to Wolverine.

    CYCLOPS
    Wolverine, you and Gambit ready to do a jump?

    WOLVERINE
    Thought you’d never ask. Let’s go, Gumbo.

    Wolverine and Gambit get up, remove parachutes from over the hatch.

    JEAN GREY
    I’m opening the hatch now. Get ready.

    GAMBIT
    Always ready, chére.

    JEAN GREY
    You’re clear! Go!

    Wolverine and Gambit jump out of the plane. Wolverine yells to Gambit.

    WOLVERINE
    Scared, Cajun?

    GAMBIT
    We don’t scare in N’Orleans, Logan!

    Wolverine smiles. They plummet to the ground, activate their parachutes.

    EXT. WASHINGTON MONUMENT

    They land several hundred yards from where Magneto is.

    WOLVERINE
    Gonna have to run for it.

    It begins to snow.

    GAMBIT
    Let’s make this quick, then, non?

    They sprint to the monument.

    Ahead of them, Magneto is nearly finished.

    POLARIS
    Father! Above you!

    MAGNETO
    What?

    Beast lands on top of Magneto. The X-Jet hovers just feet above. Beast and Magneto fall to the ground.

    MAGNETO
    Ah, the X-Men. Arrived in the proverbial nick of time, I see.

    BEAST
    As always, Magneto.

    Cyclops, Jean, and Storm arrive on the scene. An optic blast catches Polaris off guard, knocking her down.

    Mystique joins Magneto.

    MYSTIQUE
    The blood traitors have arrived, Erik. What do we do them?

    MAGNETO
    You are merely an obstacle, Cyclops. But now, not even Charles’ precious students will stand in my way.

    CYCLOPS
    We’ll see about that.

    Cyclops fires a blast at Mystique, but she dodges it, flipping over him and sticking a gun to Jean’s back.

    JEAN GREY
    Nice try.

    Spinning around, Jean telekinetically sends the gun several yards away. She kicks Mystique squarely in the stomach. As Mystique falls, however, Toad leaps into Jean, knocking her down.

    Wolverine and Gambit join Cyclops, still confronting Magneto.

    MAGNETO
    Ah. You’ve brought everyone, I see.

    Magneto outstretches a hand. Wolverine levitates from the ground.

    MAGNETO
    You’re the weakest one up against me. You know that, don’t you?

    Wolverine snarls.

    MAGNETO
    Against me, you’re nothing!

    With a flick of the wrist, Magneto sends Wolverine flying yards away, right into the monument. Gambit fires a card at him, Cyclops an optic blast. Magneto stumbles back.

    CYLCOPS
    This isn’t the answer, Magneto! You know that!

    MAGNETO
    They’re not playing by your rules anymore, Mr. Summers! Or maybe you haven’t noticed the silver executioners marching across the country. You haven’t rescued every mutant, you know.

    Magneto looks away, anger filling his face.

    MAGNETO
    Two of my children are missing. For all I know, they’re dead.

    EXT. STREET

    Storm and Beast are confronted by police officers.

    STORM
    Listen to us! We’re here to stop this!

    One of the officers points a gun at the two.

    POLICE OFFICER
    Stand down!

    BEAST
    We’re not the ones you want!

    STORM
    We are the X-Men. We are here to stop Magneto from destroying this city. Please, let us help you.

    POLICE OFFICER
    We know what you are.

    He lowers his gun.

    POLICE OFFICER (cont’d)
    The Sentinels are on their way.

    EXT. WASHINGTON MONUMENT

    Jean and Toad continue to spar. Toad proves much to agile for a hand to hand fight, but Jean manages to telekinetically knock him onto the ground. Repeatedly.

    TOAD
    Ah! Knock that off!

    JEAN GREY
    You first.

    She lets him go. He falls to the ground. Rather than surrender, he snaps his tongue out, catching Jean around the ankle. She falls.

    EXT. SKY

    Six Sentinels fly through the buildings of Washington, landing on the monument grounds.

    EXT. WASHINGTON MONUMENT

    Magneto looks to the Sentinels.

    MAGNETO
    And the farce continues.

    He faces Cyclops.

    MAGNETO
    Tell me, Scott: Who is wrong in this picture?

    Wolverine trudges back over.

    WOLVERINE
    You’re both wrong. This violence ain’t gettin’ us anywhere fast.

    MAGNETO
    Have it your way. But the way I see it, there’s one easy way to stop these monstrosities.

    Magneto knocks them both aside. He gestures emphatically, and the monument is unearthed. He sends it flying into the Sentinels. Only two dodge it; the rest are destroyed on impact.

    EXT. STREET

    The police and Storm and Beast look over.

    POLICE OFFICER
    Look out!

    The group of police scrambles. Beast grabs Storm and leaps to safety as the wrecked Sentinels (and the Washington monument) skid to a halt in the middle of the street.

    The police approach Magneto.

    POLICE OFFICER
    Open fire!
    They begin shooting.

    EXT. MONUMENT SITE

    Magneto shakes his head.

    MAGNETO
    Fools.

    He holds out his palm. The bullets stop before him. Magneto shouts to the police.

    MAGNETO
    I can let these fall to the ground.

    Two or three of the bullets fall.

    MAGNETO
    Or I can send them right back at you.

    A bullet speeds back, hitting one of the officers in the forehead.

    MAGNETO
    The choice is yours.

    The police officer looks around at the others.

    POLICE OFFICER
    Drop your guns.

    They do. Magneto smiles.

    MAGNETO
    A wise choice, officer.

    The bullets fall to the ground.

    MAGNETO
    You see, Scott, I can be reasonable.

    Cyclops, Wolverine, Beast, and Storm join Magneto.

    CYCLOPS
    You have a hell of a way of showing it.

    WOLVERINE
    We’re still takin’ you down tonight.

    Magneto laughs.

    MAGNETO
    I’m sure you will. But my point, I fear, has already been made. That building represents the laws of this country. They’ve forgotten what it means to be lawful, and now the monument is gone.

    STORM
    And an innocent person dead.

    MAGNETO
    We all make sacrifices, Storm.

    EXT. MONUMENT GROUNDS-ELSEWHERE

    Gambit joins Jean in the fight against Toad. Toad picks up a fragmented lamppost and uses it to spar with Gambit, who uses his staff as defense. Toad tries to use his tongue again, but Gambit grabs him.

    GAMBIT
    Hold him still for me, Red.

    Jean reaches out toward Toad, freezing him.

    GAMBIT
    Hope you enjoy this, mon frére.

    Gambit charges Toad’s tongue. Jean winces. Toad wails, the shock sending him flying back several feet. Mystique runs over to him, extending a hand.

    MYSTIQUE
    Get up.

    TOAD
    Cajun bastard.

    MYSTIQUE
    Indeed.

    EXT. MONUMENT GROUNDS

    Jean and Gambit join the rest of the X-Men. Magneto rolls his eyes.

    MAGNETO
    You’re all together, I see.

    Polaris steps to Magneto’s side.

    POLARIS
    What about the other two Sentinels?

    The Sentinels have regrouped, and now approach the X-Men and what’s left of the Brotherhood.

    MAGNETO
    We eliminate them, my dear.

    Magneto addresses the X-Men.

    MAGNETO
    You’ll forgive me, Cyclops, but I’m going to presume to give orders.

    CYCLOPS
    Not on your life.

    MAGNETO
    Try me. Polaris and I will take the one on the left. You all can do what you like with one on the right.

    CYCLOPS
    Fine.

    Magneto smirks. He and Polaris ascend into the air, approaching the Sentinels.

    Wolverine pops his claws.

    WOLVERINE
    Let’s rip it to shreds.

    The X-Men charge the Sentinel. It stands at three times the height of Cyclops, the tallest of the X-Men.

    WOLVERINE
    You know what to do, Beast.

    BEAST
    Certainly, Logan.

    Beast scoops up Wolverine, and tosses him into the Sentinel. Wolverine latches on to its head, and digs his claws into its “brain”. Cyclops barrages its midsection with optic blasts, while Jean holds Wolverine steady with her telekinesis. Storm hovers around its midsection, ready to zap it on Cyclops’ word.

    Magneto and Polaris merely rip their Sentinel apart limb from limb. Colossus continues to fight them as well.

    POLARIS
    Look at how they work together, Father.

    MAGNETO
    It is their greatest strength, Lorna.

    Magneto removes the Sentinel’s head.

    MAGNETO
    But even that is nothing compared to our strength.

    POLARIS
    They will prove versatile opponents.

    MAGNETO
    The Sentinels will not be seen after tonight. Not for a long time. We will strike again when the time is right, and nothing Charles can do will stop us.

    Polaris smiles evilly.

    Back with the X-Men, the Sentinel is very nearly beaten. It begins to topple.

    CYCLOPS
    It’s down, Storm! You and Jean steady it!

    Wolverine leaps down, rolling to a stop.

    Storm’s eyes go white, and she manipulates the wind to blow the Sentinel out of harm’s way. Jean keeps it steady.

    CYCLOPS
    Good work, people.

    Magneto and Polaris stride over.

    MAGNETO
    Congratulations, X-Men, though that probably took slightly longer than it needed.

    POLARIS
    We do appreciate your assistance. If only we could work together on a more regular basis.

    CYCLOPS
    We don’t work with you, Polaris.

    MAGNETO
    We will always be here, Scott.

    JEAN GREY
    And we’ll always be here to stop you.

    POLARIS
    Noble thoughts.

    She turns to Magneto.

    POLARIS
    Let’s go, before more humans arrive.

    EXT. SKY

    As though on cue, several SHIELD transport planes arrive over the monument grounds. NICK FURY parachutes down.

    EXT. MONUMENT GROUNDS

    Taking advantage of the surprise, Jean disables both Magneto and Polaris, using telekinesis to pin a tree over both of them. Colossus is gone.

    Magneto grimaces.

    MAGNETO
    Of course. And when did you contact Commander Fury, Miss Grey?

    JEAN GREY
    Long enough ago that it didn’t matter what you did here tonight.

    MAGNETO
    Impressive.

    Nick approaches Cyclops. The PRESIDENT is with him.

    NICK FURY
    Nice job, Slim. Coulda done without the property damage, but seein’ as it’s not your fault…

    Nick calls over his shoulder.

    NICK FURY
    Get the plastic boys down here. We’re carting these two off.

    He turns back to Cyclops.

    NICK FURY
    Shouldn’t there be three more?

    CYCLOPS
    They got away.

    EXT. STREET

    Mystique, Colossus, and Toad look on from behind the wrecked monument.

    TOAD
    Shouldn’t we be helping them?

    MYSTIQUE
    And get ourselves arrested, too? No. Erik planned for this. We’re more use to him on the outside. When the time’s right, he’ll tell us.

    COLOSSUS
    In the meantime?

    MYSTIQUE
    We recruit.

    EXT. MONUMENT GROUNDS

    Nick turns to the President.

    NICK FURY
    Mr. President, excuse my French, but even SHIELD is gonna have one hell of a time coverin’ this up. Not too many ways to explain the Washington monument blocking traffic on Pennsylvania Avenue.

    PRESIDENT
    We’ll come up with something.

    The President turns to Cyclops and the X-Men.

    PRESIDENT
    Mr. Summers, is it?

    The President extends his hand. Cyclops takes it.

    CYCLOPS
    That’s me, sir.

    PRESIDENT
    You have my gratitude for your actions tonight. I can’t speak for the whole country, strangely enough—but I know that I can sleep easier knowing that there’s a few good mutants out there. That if these people try something, you’ll be there to stop them. And it means a lot to me.

    STORM
    And the Sentinels?

    PRESIDENT
    Consider them a thing of the past. I’ll be making the executive order first thing in the morning recalling the Sentinels.

    He chuckles.

    PRESIDENT
    Don’t worry. In government speak, that means we called them off five minutes ago.

    Cyclops grins.

    PRESIDENT
    Normally, we have a thing about vigilantes…but you can consider yourselves exempt as long as I’m around. I ran it by with the proper authorities, and they’ve agreed to keep from arresting you on sight.

    The President turns away.

    PRESIDENT
    We’ll be looking to you folks in the future. Keep up the good work.

    Nick approaches Cyclops.

    NICK FURY
    I guess that means no cover up. Congratulations—you people really were here tonight.

    Nick turns away.

    NICK FURY
    I’ll keep in touch.

    As he leaves, Magneto and Polaris are put in plastic planes, and flown away.

    Cyclops turns to the rest of the X-Men.

    CYCLOPS
    All things considered, this went pretty well.

    BEAST
    Agreed.

    JEAN GREY
    Guess it’s time to head back. We’ve got a bunch of kids to look after now.

    GAMBIT
    But the Sentinels are gone. They don’t gotta stay wit’ us anymore.

    STORM
    If only that were true.

    WOLVERINE
    Think about it, Cajun. Just ‘cause the President called off the Sentinels, don’t mean they magically go away. And even if they do, we still gotta worry about the people who made ‘em.

    CYCLOPS
    Those kids aren’t safe at home. I imagine Professor Xavier will be bringing a lot more in over the next few months.

    STORM
    It is our duty to protect them.

    JEAN GREY
    They’re the next generation.

    WOLVERINE
    They’ll turn out alright.

    EXT. SKY

    The X-Jet takes off.

    EXT. TRISKELION

    A SHIELD jet lands outside Triskelion, SHIELD’s high security prison complex, especially reserved for super villains.

    INT. TRISKELION

    PROFESSOR CHARLES XAVIER, now in a plastic wheelchair, is pushed by a SECURITY GUARD into the non-metal wing of Triskelion. He passes Polaris’ cell. She sits cross-legged in the middle of the floor, reading.

    Xavier enters Magneto’s cell. Pachelbel’s “Canon in D” plays softly, a recording. Magneto is silent, sitting with his back to the entrance. His eyes are closed.

    CHARLES
    Erik.

    Magneto does not move.

    MAGNETO
    Hello, Charles. Come to gloat?

    CHARLES
    What would I have to gloat about? The last thing I wish to see is you imprisoned. And despite appearances, you won last night.

    MAGNETO
    So you do realize what has just occurred.

    CHARLES
    The President is a good man. But the others are not. And they often prove to be more important. They understand exactly how far you will go.

    MAGNETO
    And how far is that, Charles?

    CHARLES
    Too far.

    MAGNETO
    Miss Grey gave quite the rousing speech last night. The X-Men will, “always be there stop me.”

    CHARLES
    Jean is a bright girl.

    MAGNETO
    It’s a pity that our lives parted ways so long ago, Charles.

    CHARLES
    Indeed it is, Erik.

    MAGNETO
    I suppose two stubborn old men cannot be expected to change their ways.

    CHARLES
    I should think not.

    Magneto finally turns around.

    MAGNETO
    Then I think there is nothing left to be said. They won’t keep me here forever, Charles. Mystique will get me and my daughter out.

    CHARLES
    I have no doubt of that. But as Jean said, I will be here to stop whatever it is you’re planning.

    MAGNETO
    This has gone past diplomacy, Charles, and you’d do well to accept that. My way is all that’s left.

    CHARLES
    That, then, is where we part ways.

    MAGNETO
    If it must be so. Goodbye, old friend.

    CHARLES
    Goodbye, Erik.

    The security guard enters the cell, and wheels Xavier out.

    FADE OUT.

    THE END

    very very nice... are the two stories linked together? I'm wondering this because after Jubilee passes out, she is no longer mentioned. Does she arrive at the mansion with Kitty and Iceman?:confused:

    Like owen said, it's a two part pilot. Jubilee got lumped in with "new mutants" in the last scene in episode 1. Oops. I promise she's there, though. Look for the next eppy sometime soon.

    X-Men: The Series

    Episode 103- "Crawling"

    By: Boba_Fett_123 and owen_2006_294


    A young 16 year old guy, BOBBY DRAKE (Iceman), is playing basketball with another New Mutant, JOHN ALLERDYCE (Pyro). They’re both dressed in a pair of shorts and a basketball jersey. Bobby checks the ball to John.

    BOBBY
    You ready?

    John checks the ball back.

    JOHN
    If you’re ready to lose.

    BOBBY
    Cocky much?

    JOHN
    No, just better than you.

    BOBBY
    Fine. Next point wins, then.

    John shrugs.

    JOHN
    Your loss.

    Bobby checks the ball. Out of the corner of his eye, he notices that some spectators have arrived. Then he notices KITTY PRYDE standing next to JUBILATION LEE and ROGUE ADLER. Bobby speeds down the lane and attempts a crossover. He glances over at Kitty again. Within one second, he loses balance and wipes out. John scoops the ball away and shoots a three pointer for the win. John helps Bobby up.

    JOHN
    What’d I tell you?

    John looks over to Kitty.

    JOHN
    Your head’s not in the game, that’s the problem.

    BOBBY
    I know.

    He looks in Kitty’s direction and smiles.

    JOHN
    Just go and ask her out already, Iceman.

    He pushes Bobby gently toward Kitty.

    JOHN
    I bet you a month’s dish duty you won’t do it.

    BOBBY
    Make it laundry too and you got a deal.

    John scoffs.

    JOHN
    And smell your rank socks?

    He looks back to Kitty.

    JOHN
    Yeah, like you’ll do it anyway. Deal.

    They shake. Bobby turns and walks over to Jubilee, Kitty, and Rogue. Jubilee and Rogue notice Bobby coming over.

    BOBBY
    Hey.

    JUBILEE
    Hey. That was a good game. At least, until you wiped out. That wasn’t because you were paying attention to something else, was it?

    Bobby laughs nervously and scratches the back of his head.

    BOBBY
    Uh…no.

    He smiles.

    BOBBY
    Is it okay if I borrow Kitty for a minute?

    Jubilee and Rogue take the hint.

    ROGUE
    Actually, Jubilee and ah have a to finish a project for…

    Rogue draws blank. Jubilee quickly finishes.

    JUBILEE
    Art. We have to finish a project for art.

    KITTY
    We don’t take art.

    ROGUE
    Maybe you don’t.

    She takes Jubilee by the arm.

    ROGUE
    We’ll see you guys later.

    They quickly leave. Kitty looks around awkwardly.

    KITTY
    So.

    BOBBY
    Yeah.

    They walk toward the mansion.

    BOBBY
    Uh…do you have any plans for tomorrow.

    Kitty blushes.

    KITTY
    No. Why?

    They both stop walking.

    BOBBY
    Well, uh…I was wondering if, maybe, y’know, you’d like to…go out. Or something.

    Kitty’s face begins to turn a bright red now.

    KITTY
    Sure.

    BOBBY
    Okay. Great.

    His watch beeps.

    BOBBY
    Ah…Miss Grey’s gonna kill me for being late. Again.

    He quickly looks up at Kitty again.

    BOBBY
    So, I’ll talk to you later.

    Kitty nods.

    KITTY
    Yeah.

    She watches as Bobby runs into the mansion.

    INT. GIRL’S DORM

    Kitty sits on her bed looking at a couple of magazines. She hears a knock on her door.

    KITTY
    Yeah!

    She turns the page in her magazine as Jubilee and Rogue enter.

    JUBILEE and ROGUE
    Hey.

    KITTY
    What’s up?

    Jubilee flops onto Kitty’s bed, and Rogue hops into a bean bag chair in the corner of the room.

    JUBILEE
    So?

    KITTY
    So what?

    JUBILEE
    So, what did Bobby say?!

    Kitty shrugs.

    KITTY
    I dunno. We didn’t talk that long.

    She becomes much more interested in her magazine, her cheeks turning pink.

    ROGUE
    He said somethin’. Lookit her face.

    Kitty groans.

    KITTY
    If you really must know, we’re going out tomorrow.

    ROGUE
    About time.

    She picks up a magazine as well.

    JUBILEE
    Did he say where?

    KITTY
    No. We’ll talk later. He was late for Red’s class.

    Jubilee and Rogue exchange significant glances.

    KITTY
    What?

    ROGUE
    Nothin’.

    Kitty tosses the magazine aside.

    KITTY
    Alright, enough about me and Bobby. What’s up with you and Remy, Rogue?

    Rogue’s head jolts up from the magazine.

    ROGUE
    Nothing. Absolutely nothing. He’s too old for me!

    JUBILEE
    And that’s why your face is bright red, right?

    Rogue throws a pillow at Jubilee.

    INT. HALLWAY

    Bobby walks down the hallway after class. JEAN GREY follows him.

    JEAN GREY
    Bobby? Can I talk to you for a minute?

    Bobby keeps walking, in a daze. Jean shakes her head.

    JEAN
    (telepathically)
    Bobby. Can I talk to you for a minute?

    Bobby jumps.

    BOBBY
    Holy--!

    He turns.

    BOBBY
    Sorry. Takes some getting used to.

    JEAN
    For how often I need to wake you up in class, you should be well used to it by now.

    Bobby looks down.

    JEAN
    Are you feeling okay?

    BOBBY
    Yeah. Just thinking.

    JEAN
    Well, you were “just thinking” for forty-five minutes back there. What’s up?

    BOBBY
    Uh…I kinda have a date tomorrow.

    JEAN
    Hmm-mmm. Come with me.

    They walk down the hall.

    INT. GARAGE

    SCOTT SUMMERS works on his motorcycle. He stops as the door opens, and looks up to see Jean and Bobby.

    SCOTT
    Hey, Jean.

    JEAN
    Hey, yourself.

    Bobby looks out of place.

    JEAN
    (telepathically, to Scott)
    Mr. Drake has a date tomorrow, Scott.

    Scott looks at Bobby and smirks a bit.

    JEAN
    (telepathically, to Scott)
    Since you didn’t ask me ‘til you were twenty, I figure you remember enough about the first date to help him.

    The smirk goes away.

    SCOTT
    Hey!

    Jean smiles.

    JEAN
    I’ll leave you two boys to talk.

    She exits the garage. Scott looks at Bobby and gets up from his knees.

    SCOTT
    You have a date tomorrow?

    Bobby shuffles his feet.

    BOBBY
    Yeah.

    SCOTT
    Well then, between you and me, the hard part’s over.

    BOBBY
    Well, I guess…But I have no idea where to take her.

    SCOTT
    Movie and dinner?

    BOBBY
    Everyone does that. I want this to be special.

    He stops for a second.

    BOBBY
    Where did you and Miss Grey go for your first date?

    SCOTT
    Life or death battle with Mystique.

    Bobby’s eyes widen.

    SCOTT
    Life here’s not exactly normal.

    BOBBY
    No kidding.

    SCOTT
    Well…the circus is town. You could always try that.

    BOBBY
    The circus?

    Pause.

    BOBBY
    Were you ever a normal kid?

    Scott is taken back by this question.

    SCOTT
    Sarcasm. Nice. You got any better suggestions?

    BOBBY
    I guess not.

    Bobby turns to leave.

    SCOTT
    Hey.

    Bobby turns back around.

    SCOTT
    Who’s the lucky lady?

    BOBBY
    Oh…Kitty. Kitty Pryde.

    Scott nods.

    SCOTT
    Well…off you go.

    BOBBY
    Thanks for the help.

    SCOTT
    Any time.

    Bobby leaves.

    EXT. CIRCUS-EVENING

    Bobby and Kitty walk toward the circus tent.

    BOBBY
    She blushed?

    Kitty smiles.

    KITTY
    Yeah. She kinda has a thing for him.

    BOBBY
    Wow. He’s gotta be a lot older than her.

    KITTY
    No, he’s only eighteen. Rogue’s almost seventeen, so…really, not that big a deal. But he’s an X-Man, and it kinda weirds her out, I guess.

    On the way to the tent, they pass a game booth. Spotting it, Bobby grabs Kitty’s arm.

    BOBBY
    Come on.

    He leads her over to the game.

    The carnie running the game sets three balls on the countertop. The game is a typical carnival game, where one knocks down a pyramid of bottles, and wins a prize.

    CARNIE
    Knock down the bottles, win your choice.

    Bobby places three quarters on the counter, and grabs the first ball. Short. He tries again, but misses by a hair. Kitty touches his arm.

    KITTY
    It’s okay if you don’t win.

    Bobby looks at her a second, then picks up the final ball. Hiding his hand from the carnie, he freezes it just a bit, then throws it. He knocks down all the bottles. Kitty smiles.

    Gesturing to the stuffed animals behind him, the carnie says:

    CARNIE
    Any one you want.

    A decent sized purple dragon catches Kitty’s eye. She points to it.

    KITTY
    That one.

    The carnie hands her the dragon. Taking the dragon in one hand and Bobby’s hand in the other, she leads Bobby back to the circus tent. She turns and hugs him.

    KITTY
    Thank you.

    BOBBY
    So what’re you gonna name it?

    Kitty looks at the dragon for a second, thinking, then looks back to Bobby.

    KITTY
    Lockheed. His name’s Lockheed.

    BOBBY
    Lockheed? That’s original.

    KITTY
    Thanks again.

    She leans over and kisses him on the cheek. Bobby smiles and puts his arm around her.

    BOBBY
    You’re welcome.

    They enter the tent, passing a poster with a picture of a demonic looking performer on it, with the text “THE INCREDIBLE NIGHTCRAWLER”.

    INT. CIRCUS TENT

    Kitty and Bobby take their seats. The lights go down, and a spotlight appears in the center ring.

    RINGMASTER
    Ladies and gentlemen, children of all ages! I give you…the Incredible Nightcrawler!

    The spotlight swings up high, near the ceiling, where stands the seventeen-year-old KURT WAGNER. His skin is dark blue, his eyes yellow. A tail protrudes from the back of his red and block costume. He waves to the audience, then leaps to the a swing in the center of the tent.

    RINGMASTER
    And now…remove the nets!

    Several CREW MEMBERS take the nets away. Kurt takes a deep breath, and swings from one swing to the next. He grabs a third with his tail, then swings upward. He falls, fast, nearly hitting the ground.

    Then he disappears. The audience gasps, then applauds as he reappears on the platform from which he started, bowing deeply.

    Suddenly, the tent tears below Kurt, as a large fat man and several carnies enter the floor. The audience claps at first, until the man, the BLOB, knocks out the ringmaster and takes his microphone.

    BLOB
    Lissen up! This is the Blob, and his circus gang! We’re comin’ around, and we want all the money and jewels you got!

    BLOB’S CARNIES file through the stands. Bobby nudges Kitty.

    BOBBY
    (whispering)
    Let’s go.

    KITTY
    Right.

    They quickly get up. One of Blob’s carnies swings the spotlight over to them.

    BLOB
    What’s this? Some punk-ass kids think they can get away?!

    Bobby and Kitty spin around as carnies approach them from both sides. Suddenly, Kurt teleports in between them, grabs them both, and teleports away again.

    BLOB
    Hey! Where’d they go?!

    EXT. CIRCUS TENT-EVENING

    Kurt, Bobby, and Kitty reappear outside the tent.

    KITTY
    Omigod. What just happened?

    When Kurt answers, a light German accent is detectable.

    KURT
    I’m sorry to have startled you. I didn’t want you to get hurt.

    BOBBY
    You…you’re a mutant too, aren’t you?

    KURT
    Yes. I joined the circus to hide from people who…

    KITTY
    Who what?

    KURT
    In my hometown, Munich…people thought that I was a demon. They tried to kill me.

    KITTY
    Oh my God, that’s awful.

    KURT
    So…if you know what mutants are, then are you mutants, too?

    BOBBY
    Yup.

    KITTY
    Uh, guys? The time for talking may be over.

    She points to the Blob, who is now approaching.

    BLOB
    So, some mutie kids tryin’ to escape. My pals can handle the baselines in there, but I wanna take you guys out ‘specially.

    KITTY
    “Muties”? Are you kidding me?! No one could be that enormously fat without being a mutant!

    Bobby touches her shoulder.

    BOBBY
    Whoa, down girl.

    BLOB
    What did you say to me?!

    Blob charges at Kitty, who runs right toward him and phases through him.

    KITTY
    Oh, gross!

    BLOB
    This is gonna be fun!

    Bobby shoots a jet of ice at the ground under Blob’s feet. Blob trips and falls, shaking the ground.

    BLOB
    No fair!

    Blob gets up. Kurt teleports onto his back and covers Blob’s eyes with his three-fingered hands.

    KURT
    Peek-a-boo!

    Blob reaches up and tosses Kurt away. Kitty runs up behind him and tries to push him. Blob turns and laughs at her.

    BLOB
    Nothing moves the Blob!

    KITTY
    No kidding.

    Bobby speeds by on an ice slide and scoops Kitty up.

    BOBBY
    Not where you wanna be.

    Kitty kisses him on the cheek.

    KITTY
    Thanks.

    Suddenly, wind whips around everyone.

    KITTY
    Storm!

    Jean Grey and ORORO MUNROE descend from the sky. Storm’s eyes burn white as she manipulates the weather around her.

    STORM
    Blob, is it?

    The wind pummels Blob, threatening to move him. Soon, snow and hail join it, pelting him. He grimaces, but remains firmly planted in place. Jean extends her hand and concentrates hard. Slowly, Blob lifts a half inch off the round. It is enough. Storm’s winds send him flying yards away, crashing into a nearby booth.

    JEAN
    Bobby! Freeze him!

    Bobby extends his hand, and ice restrains Blob to the ground. Jean sits, visibly strained.

    JEAN
    Well, that’s that.

    She smiles weakly at Bobby and Kitty.

    JEAN (cont’d)
    You guys are way too old for chaperones, you know that?

    Kitty smiles bashfully.

    KITTY
    We were kinda holding our own, don’t you think?
    Ororo steps next to Kitty and puts an arm around her.

    STORM
    That you did, Kitten. I’m very proud of you. But, try to stay out of trouble until you’re better trained.

    BOBBY
    No arguments there.

    Jean gets up and goes over to Kurt.

    JEAN
    What’s your name?

    KURT
    Kurt Wagner. Here, they call me Nightcrawler…but I’m not sure I’ll have a job, now that they know I’m a mutant.

    KITTY
    Wait a minute—Storm, there’s people in there still! Blob’s guys are robbing them!

    JEAN
    Don’t worry, Kitty—we took care of the first.

    ORORO
    Blob’s men have already been arrested, while you were out here fighting Blob.

    BOBBY
    Wait—then that means…

    JEAN
    I said you were too old for chaperone, Bobby.

    She claps him on the shoulder.

    JEAN
    You guys did good.

    She turns back to Kurt.

    JEAN
    Kurt, you’re welcome to come back with us. Storm and I teach at a school for people like us. For mutants.

    Kitty lights up.

    KITTY
    You could come to school with us! It’d be great!

    BOBBY
    And there’s a definite shortage of male students. John and me’d be happy to have you around.

    Kurt smiles.

    KURT
    How could I refuse?

    KITTY
    So, uh…how did you guys get here?

    STORM
    The jet’s around on the other side.

    BOBBY
    Great. For a second I thought we were walking back to Westchester.

    The X-Men all walk away.

    FADE OUT.

    THE END.

    X-Men: The Series

    Episode 104- “Brilliant”

    By: Boba_Fett_123

    FADE IN:

    EXT. ORORO’S GARDENS-NIGHT

    It is misting outside. ROGUE ADLER and REMY LEBEAU walk, hand in hand, through the gardens. Rogue’s hand is gloved.

    REMY
    This is nice.

    ROGUE
    Yeah.

    They stop. Remy leans in for a kiss. They come close, each one’s breath visible. Rogue suddenly pulls away.

    ROGUE
    No…ah can’t, Remy.

    REMY
    I’m not scared, chére.

    ROGUE
    But ah am.

    Rogue turns away.

    ROGUE
    Ah wish ah could touch you, Remy. But…the first boy ah kissed went into a coma for three weeks. An’ that was only a few months ago. Ah almost killed a man the day you rescued me.

    Remy comes closer, pulls her toward him.

    REMY
    Maybe you can control it?

    ROGUE
    Ah know ah can’t.

    She breaks away and turns.

    ROGUE
    Ah’m sorry, Remy.

    She walks away.

    INT. XAVIER’S STUDY

    PROFESSOR CHARLES XAVIER sits at his desk, fingers forming a steeple at his chin. Lost in thought.

    EXT. TRISKELION-DAY-YEARS AGO

    Establishing shot.

    INT. TRISKELION

    NICK FURY pushes Xavier down a hall. They arrive at…

    INT. JUGGERNAUT HOLDING AREA

    …and come to a stop.

    FURY
    Here we are. Strong enough to hold the Hulk.

    He looks down at Xavier.

    FURY
    Sure you want this?

    XAVIER
    It’s the only way to stop him, Nick.

    FURY
    Agreed. Didn’t think you saw things that clear, is all.

    He claps Xavier on the shoulder.

    FURY
    Got a new respect for you, Chuck.

    In the cell, CAIN MARKO, SHIELD codename “the JUGGERNAUT”, is chained to a wall, howling in anger. Fury leaves.


    XAVIER
    I’m sorry, Cain. I wish I could do more for my brother.

    Cain glares at Xavier.

    XAVIER
    But you never did want my help, did you?

    Xavier turns and wheels himself out of the room as Cain struggles against his bonds.


    INT. XAVIER’S STUDY-NOW

    Xavier sits in silence.

    INT. GIRL’S DORM

    Rogue enters. KITTY PRYDE, BOBBY DRAKE, and JUBILATION LEE all look up. Jubilee sits in the bean bag chair, while Kitty and Bobby sit on Kitty’s bed.

    JUBILEE
    So, how’d it go?

    ROGUE
    Awful.

    KITTY
    What? Why?

    Before Rogue can respond, there’s a knock on the door.

    JUBILEE
    Come in!

    The door opens, and JEAN GREY enters the room. She looks sternly at Bobby.

    JEAN
    Mr. Drake, would you care to tell me what time it is?

    BOBBY
    Uh…

    He looks at his watch.

    BOBBY
    …no, not really, no.

    JEAN
    Uh-uh. For future reference, rooming with a teleporter does not mean you can sneak into the girls’ dorm after curfew.

    Bobby gets up.

    BOBBY
    Sorry, Miss Grey. G’night, Kitty.

    Bobby walks past Jean, who pulls his ear as he walks past.

    BOBBY
    Ow!

    JEAN
    Good night, girls.

    KITTY
    Night, Miss Grey.

    Jean leaves. Bobby is still in the hallway.

    JEAN
    Bed. Now.

    From behind Jean: BAMF!

    Jean turns to see KURT WAGNER materialize behind her.

    KURT
    Bobby, you—oh. Miss Grey.

    JEAN
    Caught you red-handed.

    Kurt puts on a most guilty look. Jean shakes her head.

    JEAN
    (telepathically)
    Boys.

    She continues to shake her head as she walks away. Kurt prepares to teleport the two of them away.

    JEAN
    (telepathically)
    Go back the normal way, boys.

    Bobby turns.

    BOBBY
    It’s in a whole ‘nother wing.

    JEAN
    (telepathically)
    Do it. I’ll know if you don’t.

    Bobby and Kurt begin to walk.

    JEAN
    (telepathically)
    Hey! You are aware that I’m a telepath, Mr. Drake?
    Since I’m doing it right now? Watch your thoughts.

    Sighing profusely, Bobby and Kurt return to their dorm.

    INT. GIRL’S DORM

    Rogue climbs into bed.

    KITTY
    Really, Rogue, what happened?

    ROGUE
    He tried to kiss me.

    JUBILEE
    Oh, horror of all horrors, Adler. A hottie totally wants to make out with you.

    Rogue glares at her.

    JUBILEE
    Sorry.

    ROGUE
    These powers suck. Ah wish ah could just get rid of them.

    KITTY
    Don’t say that.

    ROGUE
    What? Ya’ll can touch people, no problem. Me…ah’ll never be able to touch anybody. Ever. Know how that feels?

    Kitty gets up.

    KITTY
    No.

    Kitty phases, then touches Rogue’s arm.

    KITTY
    And neither should you.

    Rogue puts her hand through Kitty’s arm.

    ROGUE
    Oh ma God. Ah can’t believe it…

    KITTY
    See…maybe there’s other things you can touch, too.

    Rogue smiles.

    ROGUE
    Maybe. Maybe one day ah’ll even be able to control ‘em.

    JUBILEE
    Mm-hmm. And when you can, you better be all over that Remy, ‘cause if you’re not, I will be.

    Rogue laughs.

    ROGUE
    Shut up, Jubes!

    INT. BOY’S DORM

    JOHN ALLERDYCE sits watching TV as Bobby and Kurt enter.

    JOHN
    Snagged?

    BOBBY
    You can say that again.

    JOHN
    I’d love to. You got caught.

    BOBBY
    We get it, John.

    JOHN
    Told you: you guys are way too goody-goody to pull something like that off.

    KURT
    I’m no goody-goody!

    John scoffs.

    JOHN
    Okay.

    He flicks his lighter.

    JOHN
    When you guys’ve been through half of what I have, then we’ll talk.

    BOBBY
    ‘Cause you’re so tough.

    John looks at him.

    JOHN
    Guess you’ll never know.

    He turns off the TV, then gets up.

    JOHN
    I’m going to get some food.

    KURT
    But Miss Grey will be patrolling the halls now!

    JOHN
    Like that’ll stop me?

    John leaves. Bobby looks after him.

    BOBBY
    He’s gonna get himself into trouble one day.

    INT. XAVIER’S STUDY

    Xavier picks up his phone.

    XAVIER
    You said Commander Fury had a message.

    FURY (V.O.)
    This is Fury.

    INT. FURY’S OFFICE

    Fury sits at his desk, feet propped up, smoking a cigar.

    FURY
    You’ve had us on hold for so long, you caught me comin’ in for the morning shift.

    XAVIER (V.O.)
    I apologize…

    INT. XAVIER’S STUDY

    XAVIER (cont’d)
    …but you know that there are only two reasons you’d be calling me in regards to Triskelion. Neither is pleasant.

    FURY (V.O.)
    You ain’t kiddin’.

    XAVIER
    So, which is it?

    FURY (V.O.)
    Well, it ain’t Magneto. He’s still safe and sound in his plastic dollhouse.

    INT. FURY’S OFFICE

    FURY
    It’s your brother. Cain got out tonight. Not sure how. Figured you could use a heads up.

    INT. XAVIER’S STUDY

    XAVIER
    Indeed. I’ll wake the others. Thank you, Nick.

    EXT. MANHATTAN-NIGHT

    Establishing shot.

    EXT. RUNDOWN BOARDING HOUSE-NIGHT

    One of the lights is on. A woman’s silhouette is visible.

    INT. BOARDING HOUSE

    MYSTIQUE stands by the window. On the couch are TOAD and COLOSSUS. Standing off to the side is Cain Marko.

    MYSTIQUE
    I kept up my end of the bargain, Marko. Though I doubt you need much incentive to go after your brother.

    Cain grunts.

    MYSTIQUE
    So eloquent. Go. The X-Men can’t know that we’re still active—you, on the other hand…well, they have no idea that you’re with us. Though I’m sure that twit Fury has warned Xavier by now.

    COLOSSUS
    You don’t think I should go with him?

    MYSTIQUE
    No. We can’t play our hand too early. Everything needs to be exactly right for this whole thing to work.

    She turns to Cain.

    MYSTIQUE
    You know what to do.

    Cain nods, then turns to leave.

    INT. XAVIER’S STUDY

    CYCLOPS, Jean Grey, STORM, BEAST, Gambit, and WOLVERINE enter the study.

    CYCLOPS
    What is it, Professor?

    XAVIER
    I have something very important to tell you all. A secret that I’ve kept for far too long. You see…I have a brother.

    EXT. THE XAVIER MANSION-HALF A CENTURY AGO

    A young Charles runs around under the watchful eye of his mother, SHARON. KURT MARKO joins her off-camera, and a young Cain stands at his side.

    XAVIER (V.O.)
    My father died when I was a boy, and it wasn’t much after that when my mother was remarried to one of her colleagues, Kurt Marko. Kurt had a son from a prior marriage named Cain.

    CYCLOPS (V.O.)
    So he’s only your stepbrother?

    XAVIER (V.O.)
    Yes, though the distinction matters little.

    Kurt turns to Cain.

    KURT
    Cain, why don’t you go play with your brother?

    CAIN
    That kid ain’t my brother. He ain’t even related to me.

    Sharon places a hand on Kurt’s shoulder.

    SHARON
    It’s alright, Kurt. He’s just having trouble adjusting.

    INT. CAIN’S ROOM

    Kurt throws Cain over the bed and beats him with a belt.

    XAVIER (V.O.)
    Though I was never meant to know, I soon discovered that Cain was abused by his father.

    Young Charles opens the door. Kurt stops and turns to him.

    XAVIER (V.O.)
    For my mother’s sake, he dared not treat me the same.


    INT. XAVIER’S STUDY-NOW

    XAVIER
    Out of fear, I kept the encounter a secret. I realize now that I could not have been more wrong. I did more damage by keeping silent than Kurt could ever have done to me.

    STORM
    What happened to Cain?

    XAVIER
    As it turned out, Cain was also a mutant. He grew to an extremely large size—all muscle, nothing like the Blob that you encountered—and developed super-strength. Kurt’s abuse had psychologically damaged him, and he became violent.

    At first, it was just small things, theft and such. I always thought I could save him, but Cain would never have it. He began to resort to murder. It was then I realized that there was only one way to rectify my mistake, and I called Commander Fury.

    Xavier locks eyes with each X-Man.

    XAVIER
    Until tonight, Cain was safely locked away in Triskelion.

    WOLVERINE
    He escaped?

    XAVIER
    Yes. And I fear he is on his way here. Cain placed his hatred for his Kurt onto me, for reasons I’ve never entirely understood. He’s dangerous.

    The wall behind Xavier’s desk crashes in. Cain charges through, stopping just behind Xavier.

    CAIN
    And he’s here!

    The X-Men all take a battle ready stance.

    INT. KITCHEN

    John enters the kitchen and goes over to the fridge. He hears a loud BANG!

    JOHN
    What the hell?

    INT. XAVIER’S STUDY

    Cain towers over Xavier. Wolverine pops his claws.

    WOLVERINE
    You wanna tussle, bub, you’re gonna have ta go through me!

    CAIN
    Go ahead, runt!

    Wolverine howls and leaps toward Cain, who simply swats him away and into a bookshelf. Cyclops tries to blast him, but his beam bounces off harmlessly. Cain charges through the X-Men and crashes through the door.

    Jean begins to get up from the floor.

    JEAN
    (telepathically)
    Kids!

    INT. GIRL’S DORM

    Rogue, Kitty, and Jubilee become alert.

    JEAN
    (telepathically)
    Get into the Danger Room!

    INT. HALLWAY

    Gambit and Beast chase after Cain.

    GAMBIT
    This should stop him.

    Gambit pulls out an Ace of Hearts and charges it. He flings it at Cain, and it explodes upon Cain’s back. Cain turns.

    CAIN
    That tickled.

    BEAST
    Cain, listen to me—

    CAIN
    Maybe you ain’t heard, furball—they’re callin’ me the Juggernaut now.

    BEAST
    --whatever problem you have with your brother, it can be reasoned! There’s no need for all this destruction!

    CAIN
    Then you just don’t know me, huh?

    Cain rushes Gambit, who leaps over him. Beast slides under Cain, tripping him. Cain falls with a loud CRASH!

    INT. HALLWAY-FURTHER DOWN

    John steps into the hallway and sees Cain, Gambit, and Beast down the hall. Jean runs out of Xavier’s study and sees him.

    JEAN
    John! Didn’t you get my message? Get into the Danger Room, now!

    JOHN
    I can help fight this guy!

    John begins to run toward Cain. Jean extends her hand, and John stops in his tracks.

    JEAN
    Turn around now, or I make you. Now is not the time to play hero, John.

    John glares at her, immobile.
    INT. DANGER ROOM

    The girls join Bobby and Kurt in the Danger Room.

    KITTY
    Where’s John?

    BOBBY
    I dunno. He went out for food.

    The door opens again. John enters.

    BOBBY
    John! What’s going on?

    JOHN
    Some big guy smashed through Xavier’s office.

    Silence.

    KURT
    So…that happens a lot around here, then?

    INT. HALLWAY

    Beast flies back into a wall, leaving a sizeable dent. Wolverine charges Cain from behind, claws first. Cain shouts out in pain. Wolverine withdraws his claws, and Cain turns and punches him out.

    Storm steps into the hall, and a gust of wind rushes through the hallway. Storm’s eyes go white.

    CAIN
    Huh?

    STORM
    If you will not be reasoned with, then you will leave.

    The lights flicker out.

    STORM
    It’s up to you, Cain.

    Suddenly, flashlights pierce the darkness.


    VOICE
    Everybody down!

    Cain turns to see Commander Nick Fury with two SHIELD SOLDIERS.

    FURY
    Where’s Xavier?

    Xavier wheels out of his office.

    XAVIER
    Here.

    CAIN
    That’s enough…I’m gonna—hey!

    Cain tries to move, but he is stuck in place.

    CYCLOPS
    Jean…?

    Cyclops turns. Jean leans against the wall, sweating and panting, her arm extended.

    JEAN
    Hurry, Nick…I don’t know how long I can hold him.

    FURY
    (to soldiers) Cuff him.

    The soldiers apprehend Cain and begin to take him away. Cain shouts over his shoulder:

    CAIN
    This ain’t over, Charles! You can’t hide behind these guys forever! You an’ me, one on one—s’only a matter of time!

    FURY
    Yeah, yeah.

    He turns to Xavier.

    FURY
    A word in private?


    XAVIER
    Anything that needs to be said, can be said in front of my X-Men.

    Xavier smiles faintly at Scott.

    FURY
    Alright, then. We’re thinkin’ that this wasn’t an accident. Someone sprung Juggernaut. There’s a short list of people who’d wanna do that, an’ SHIELD’s goin’ through it as we speak.

    INT. MAGNETO’S CELL

    MAGNETO sits, in silence, eyes closed, in his plastic prison.

    FURY (cont’d, V.O)
    But Triskelion’s supposed to be impenetrable. Something’s fishy. The idea of someone springing someone from that place makes me nervous, an’ I don’t scare easy.

    Suddenly, Magneto’s eyes open. Slowly, faintly, a smile comes to his lips.

    FADE TO BLACK.

    FURY (cont’d, V.O.)
    Something’s coming, I can feel it. I just hope we’re ready for it.

    XAVIER (V.O.)
    As do I, Commander. As do I.

    THE END.
