Re: Returning to the Hospital.
Xavier waited for the police to arrive.  He didn't know how easily this new metahuman would recover, and the last thing he wanted to do was fly off and then have his foe awaken.

"Hands in the air!" one of the approaching officers said, pointing his gun at you.

"Hey, man," said Carapace.  "Take it easy.  This guy is the one who was blowing everything up-- just ask somebody, all right?"

"Keep your hands in the air until the situation is sorted out," the cop said.

"Look, man, I'm going to do that, but that's because if you shoot at me when I fly away, your bullets would probably hurt some bystander," sighed Xavier.  "You can't hurt me with a gun like that, OK?  This guy was shooting blasts that blew up walls and cars, and he didn't hurt me.  All this armor isn't just for looks, you know."

...Besides, flying away would be a fairly slow process.

"Can you vouch for him," one of the cops asked a nearby paramedic.

"Yeah, he helped stop the guy that was rampaging."

"Sorry about that," the cop said. "Had to be sure, y'know."

"That's all right," said Xavier. "Call me Carapace.  Do you need me for cleanup here?  I don't think you need me to testify about what happened, but I don't know exactly what you do need."

"We have the Rebuilder squad coming in," the cop said. "You don't have to worry about it."

"Okay, good," said Carapace.  "I'm sure I'll see you around."

And he flew off... a very short distance, just far enough to get out of sight so that he could change back, and rejoin the chaos in the hospital.

"I need some help here," Jason said when he saw you, motioning to a patient strapped to a gurney that'd been knocked over.

"On it," said Xavier.  Even not transformed, he was rather strong, and with impressive stamina.

"This is freaking nuts," Jason said. "This isn't the kind of city that usually gets this kind of craziness."

"Yeah, well, it can happen anywhere, I guess," said Carapace.  "Guess we're gonna be stuck with it, too."

"I'd just hate Silver Hills to end up like New York or something," Jason said as he continues to help various patients.

"I sure hope not," said Xavier.  "There's enough trouble around here without that... so what's the deal with the plant we pulled Explodyman from, anyway?  What do they make there?  Did we ever get any kind of MSDS1 on that stuff?"

"Food additives if you can believe it," Jason said.

"Guys, I heard something big," Sara said as she came up to the two of you. "Rumour has it that the plant doesn't have any info on what was in the tank."

"...I guess I don't have to believe it," said Xavier.  "Since they don't know.  But man, remind me to avoid whatever snacks that place makes.  Don't want to think about what might be in them!"

His grin turned serious.

"...Crap, that's not a joke, is it?"

"I'm not, do you think it was a supervillain plot?" Sara asked.

"Damn it, this is exactly why I left New York," Jason sighed.

"Plot?  No idea," said Xavier.  "Doesn't have to be one.  Sometimes, accidents, even really bad ones, just happen.  But this might be one of the really bad ones.  Who do we talk to about this stuff?"

"I'm not sure. One of the head doctors? The police?" Sara asked.

"I'll try the cops as soon as we're clear here..." said Xavier.

And once everyone had been admitted, he did just that, heading for the nearest police officer.

"Something I can help you with?" a detective scribbling something down on a pad and paper asked witout looking up.

"Yeah, just checking on one thing," said Xavier.  "That guy who was blasting everyone?  Got that way into falling into a vat of some food additive.  Do we know if that stuff's getting into food?  Because they can't document what it actually is, and that might be really bad, you know?"

"Come again?" the detective asked. "Damn, first thing I'm hearing of this."

"It's true Detective Larson," a uniformed officer said walking up. "We just got word of it about five minutes ago."

"You got to tell me these things sooner! I want the plant closed down and put a call out to stop all trucks from these as well!"

"Right away," the cop said before running off.

The detective grumbled some nonsense as he went back to writing.

"...Okay, if you don't need me, I'm going back to finish up with the wounded," said Xavier.

...but if he wasn't needed for that, perhaps he'd look for a few trucks.
