"Spelly's got that covered," said Xavier.  "but I just have to smile and nod when she explains it."

"Very well," Dr. Harrison said as he rolled over to the wall and place the chemical in a wall safe.

"Cool," said Xavier.  "And thank you.  For everything.  Uh, I guess I should get going for now?  But call me if you need me, all right?"

"Sure," said Xavier, and he headed back to the others.  He'd learned something, but the mystery grew deeper...

"Yeah, it was kind of a reunion thing," said Xavier.  "We've got some history.  Also, television lies about how long testing like that takes.  But we found out what it is-- it's some kind of mutagen."

"Really? That's weird. Do you still think the two attacks are linked? I've never heard of someone trying to link magic and science," Spell Slinger said.

"I'm not sure," said Xavier.  "The critters looked kind of the same, though, you know?"

"Do you mean anyone with magic?" Xavier asked.  "Or just anyone?  What do you have to do to make them?"

"Well, there are plenty of spells that would let you make something like that," Spell Slinger said. "I'm not sure on the science front."

Xavier considered that.

"...it might be that they want the mutagen to make more creatures," he guessed.  "Or maybe mutate the ones he's got?  But that sounds pretty dangerous."

"It does, but I'm still confused. You can do that with magic, why would they need this stuff?" Spell Slinger asked.

"How hard is the magic?" asked Xavier.  "And how tough are those critters?  I've seen lots and lots of things created by weird science, and some of them are really, really tough."

"Basic ones aren't too hard. The ones we fought would need someone close to my level of skill," Spell Slinger said. "You could further augment them with magic, bu tit'd take some work."

"Maybe they want to combine the two?" guessed Xavier.  "Make 'em with magic, then mutate 'em into something bigger?"

"Like a sorceress on the same team as an alien robot?" teased Xavier.  "But either way, yeah, it's something weird.  Or is there any way to cast a spell using something like mutagen as an ingredient?"
