"Hey," said Xavier.  "I gotta hit the john.  Be right back."

He slipped out through the crowds, looking for a place he could transform discretely.

There was an empty stairwell nearby...

Re: The Stadium.
He headed there at once, transforming as soon as he was clear.  (His ability to see in all directions was a nice help there.)  From there, to the air-- and after the flying figure.

...But not quickly.  He still wasn't a very fast flier.

Re: The Stadium.
The figure wasn't moving very fast either and you were able to catch up to it easily.

Re: The Stadium.
"Hey!" called Carapace.  "What's going on?"

He hoped he wasn't coming across as hostile.  That certainly wasn't his intention.

"Uh, hi," said Xavier.  "And... welcome to Earth?  You can call me Carapace... do you mind telling me who you are, and what you're doing up here?"

"Hello, I am Drone #32156 and I am here to warn the people of Earth that the Thallian Empire is planning to invade you in the year nineteen seventy-six," the metal man said.

"Ah," said Carapace.  "Well, thank you very much for the warning.  But, well, that was nearly forty years ago.  I think the invasion's pretty well wrapped up by now."

"Is it?" the drone asked. "How odd."

"Yeah, I think I heard something about it in class once," said Xavier.  "They invaded, we beat them, that was that."

"This is beyond the parameters of my programming," the Drone said. "I have no idea as to what to do now."

"Well... did you have another purpose, in some larger way?" asked Carapace.  "I guess you could always help keep guard here."

"No, it appears that my programming did not include what came afterwards, it appears that it was expected that I would be destroyed in the battle," the Drone said. "Though your suggestion is interesting. How would I go about that?"

"Well, you could do what I do," said Carapace.  "Help protect people from criminals and natural disasters and things like that."

"Cool," said Xavier.  "Hey, this might take some explaining, and I've got to be in two places at once.  Can we set up a meeting in a few hours?"

Re: The Stadium.
Xavier thought fast.  The list of options was limited, and he truly regretted not having a real superhero base for the first time.

"There's an empty warehouse about four miles that way.  If you wait on the roof, I'll meet you there in two hours."

"I shall see you then," the Drone said as he flew off in that direction.

Xavier returned to the stadium, retracted his armor, and went back to his seat.

"So, what did I miss?" he asked.

"Nit much, just a couple of touchdowns!" Jason said. "We might be back in this!"

"About time," said Xavier, and he returned to instructing the players on the finer points of football, which of course required enough volume to be heard at the distance from the seats to the field... like most of the rest of the audience.

Re: The Stadium.
Unfortunately, the Prospectors just got into it to make it look a little more respectable. The game ended 28-14 for the visitors.

"Ah, damn it!" Jason sighed.

"At least we got on the field," sighed Xavier.  "Oh, well.  Next time.  Let's head back."
