Overlooking the city of New York Spiderman stands on the edge of a skyscraper. As he stands there he feels his spider-sense tingle, but before he can react he feels himself traveling through time and space. He appears in a building. Where he is unsure, but he sees three people in front of him. Magik in the middle Warpath on the left and Revanche on the right. As he stands to his feet Magik begins to talk.

Spider-Man I have brought you here so that you may help us with a problem we are having. Jason Stryker has been experimenting with terrigen, and we are afraid that he has discovered a way to weaponize it. We asked Wolverine to check it out, but since she has not returned we need someone who we know can trust. You have fought beside us before, and we ask for you to do it again. The plan is for me to teleport you into Miami so you Warpath and Revanche can try to find out what the Purifiers are planning, and discover what has happened to Wolverine.

"Greetings Spider-Man," James said nodding towards blue and red clad young man. I am sorry that we we're not able to give you more notice. I like your sense of color." James laughed indicating his own blue and red costume.

[Mental communication to Magik & Warpath] "He looks like Deadpool..."

Revanche had never fought besides Spiderman, in fact she'd barely heard much about him... except from the Daily Bugle newspaper.  They called him 'A menace', 'a criminal', 'a vigilante', and other less kind terms.  Mutants didn't get good press either, so maybe Spiderman was doing something right.  Whatever.  Revanche would make up her mind after the mission.  Speaking of the mission, saving untold numbers of people would go some of the way into balancing out her karmic debt... and the whole Styker family was a blight that she would be delighted to cut out.

"Obviously I am Revanche.  Since you operate more freely than us, what have you heard about Terrigen activities?  Magik seems to think you have some relevant... skills."

From the slight frown on her face, Revanche seemed a little unconvinced.  Her crossed arms also indicated a guarded demeanor (which certainly wasn't exclusive to Spiderman).  But her blue eyes had a hungry look to them, relsihing what was about to come.  Currently Revnache was wearing boots, blue jeans, a white tank top, and an open black motorcycle jacket (that looked well worn).  Nothing was personalized with unnecessary ornamentation.

Appearing suddenly in the secret base Spider-Man looks around at the assembled X-Men and sighs heavily.

"You know Illyana, most people just call or send an email."

Despite his annoyance at being plucked from the city Spider-Man couldn't really be upset, for one thing he knew how much the mutants had gone through moving from one crisis to the next and for another, they were some of his closest friends in the mask and tights set. He had worked with the X-Men before and with Wolverine more than most since they both joined the Avengers. If the X-Men needed him, Spidey couldn't refuse.

He gave Warpath a thumbs up.

"It's good to see someone around here learning some fashion sense."

He cocked his head at Revanche.

"I know it's nasty stuff. For a few it's like hitting the superpower jackpot, but for most it's a death sentence. It wouldn't take much for Stryker to turn it into a weapon and if he has we have to stop him before he can use it."

"I suppose that's close enough.  To weaponize this Terrigen, Stryker will need a lab or access to medical gear, where would you start looking?  Shaking down Purifiers seems like the slower option, one I'd prefer to skip if possible.  The more time Stryker gets playing scientist, the worse it will be... for everyone."

Her words were delivered with a 'no nonsense' attitude, along with a clenched fist.  As for Stryker making a weapon of mass destruction or creating super soldier purifiers, both were very bad options.

"What are our transport options, Magik?  And do we have anything that can destroy the Terrigen safely?  Blowing it up might not be a good idea..."

Revanche was already thinking about contingencies and options.

Spider-Man thought for a minute. He hopped up onto the wall and settled into a kind of crouch.

"We could try asking SHIELD if they have any information on them but Stryker is probably smart enough to keep his operation hidden. It might be easier to track the Terrigen itself. The Inhumans keep a pretty close eye on the supply and if some has gone missing we might be able to pick up a trail there. We can take your fancy jet to New Attlian and see what we can find out."

He pauses.

"You do have a fancy jet right?

"Thanks," James replied, "I don't always dress like this but when we're 'post to be going on a mission I wouldn't want to be recognized." He looked rather ruefully down at his giant frame. "Lots of four hundred pound seven foot two Indians running around."

"Do we have a jet?" he asked Revanche sotto voce.

We have a jet, but my teleportation can easily get you in and out. I will give each of you a com with a button on it. If you need to escape hit the button and I will come and get you. We know the base is in Miami. I can drop you off in the same spot I put Wolverine. We have already secured it, and that way you will at least start off in safe. territory.

"I do like the idea of asking the Inhumans about missing Terrigan, that could save a lot of running around, but I'm not familiar with New Attlian... where exactly is it?  And are any of us on good terms with them?"

Revanche didn't really pay attention to inhuman news, save when it directly affected her comrades.  She was totally fine with a teleportion to Miami, but could an Attlian side trip be managed too?  Or maybe there were other alternatives...

"If we could find a Miami based inhuman or get a conference call to New Attlian, I'd be satisfied with that."

No Inhumans Magic objects shaking her head. Stryker has decided to embrace some of the inhumans into his ranks. Says it's a sign from God that mutants are the true evil. That God gave humans a chance to fight back.  With inhumans and terrigan.

Revanche raised an eyebrow at the Inhuman-Stryker link.  As far as revelations went, it was a significant game changer... with a 'lot' of dire consquences.  She looked to Spiderman and shrugged.

"Well, it was a good idea... until we added Inhuman sympathizers into the mix.  We need to shut Stryker's operation down ASAP.  And if he has Inhuman allies, we should be prepared to face them in battle.  What are our rules of engagement, Magik?"

If not for her psychic weapon, Revanche could wrack up bodycounts that would make X-Force proud.  She'd been raised as a killer and those skills were so ingrained that Revanche had to control herself to avoid 'relapses'.  But as long as antimutant sentiment (and other supernatural threats) existed, she'd never be out of a job.

"Is there anything else we should be aware of... or strive to uncover?  I'd like to borrow some of those reinforced belt canisters from the armory.  If the Terrigan can't be disposed of, at least we can take it with us... and I don't want it leaking in my pockets." 

She smirked.

Try not to kill that many. We don't want the humans to hate us more than they already do. Then again if it's you or them feel free to kill them. The main goal here is Wolverine. Finding out what happened to her. After that we need to find this weapon and either stop it from being finished or destroy it. You can take the belt canisters. Is there anything else the three of you need? If not we should think about getting on the move. We don't want to give the purifiers any extra time.

"You sure you can get us there at the right time?" Proudstar asked Magik quietly. "No offense to your abilities but I've been to hell, I don't want to go back. And I seem to remember some difficulties with traveling to the future or the past."

Jame's broad brow furrowed for a moment, "Although, I could change a couple little things about eighteen hundreds. Small changes really..."

She rolls her eyes at you. I know. Time travel is a last resort. I'm just going to drop you off where I droped her off. Not at the same time I dropped her off. If that doesn't work, or if she is already in trouble, then we go ahead and change time.

Sorry realized my orignal message sounded like time travel, but that wasn't the intention.

"I'll be right back..."

Excusing herself from the conversation, Revanche padded off to the armory to collect some things.  The canisters (and a belt to wear them upon) were quikly taken, but she took a moment to see if there was anything else worth borrowing.  Guns & explosives she ignored... but a hidden knife, smoke grenade, and tracking bug were taken.

All in all, Revanche was only gone for a little while before she rejoined the group.

"I need to grab some civilian clothes. I know I stand out more than anyone here but I like to be able to say I at least tried to blend in," Proudstar said.

James jogged softly down the hall to his locker and grabbed a satchel. He packed as quickly and neatly as he could adding a couple candy bars and a water bottle.

He returned to the room and asked Magik quietly, "Okay, I'm ready." As he spoke he unconsciously brushed the hilt of his right-hand knife with his forearm.

Spider-Man double checked his web shooters while the others got ready.

"We aren't going to kill anybody. Stryker is taking advantage of those people. The three of us can handle anything the Purifiers can throw at us. No one has to die today."

As the heroes assembled to be teleporter Spider-Man gave Magik a jaunty salute.
"Beam us down Scotty."

>> from Miami: Purifier Town

Relief showed upon her face after the teleportation and Revanche found somewhere to sit.  She'd been running on adrenaline since the fight and now that all the excitement was over, she felt a little drained.  It would pass in a minute or two, however.

"I'm not entirely sure... I was holding back some Purifiers while the others affected a rescue of an unknown person.  We think it was a mutant.  Then the building just started falling in on itself without warning.  If I wasn't separated from the others or had more time to evacuate, I wouldn't have needed to withdraw.  Thank you for that, Magick... you saved my life today."

Shooting the blonde spellcaster a grateful smile, Revanche stretched her limbs and began a series of breathing exercise.

"We hadn't even reached the church, which we suspected housed the Terrigan and Striker himself.  Prior to the rescue, we had remained undetected.  Just before you pulled me out, it sounded like a third party was engaging the Purifiers in a firefight.  I don't suppose you can observe what is going on?  You can deploy me wherever I'm needed..."

Relief floods Magik's face. Ah thank goodness. I was worried that the others had met their deaths. After a quick pause Magik continues. Any technology that we had been using to keep an eye on things went blank over Miami. I'm going to assume that's our third party's doing because if the purifiers could do something like this, I bet they would have already done it.  A, well work friend of mine in shield has shared some of his information, and we believe that Doom has sent his robots to siege the church. We can only assume he too wants the terrigen for his own use. Unfortunately without vision on miami I would be hard pressed to teleport into a safe place. I wouldn't want to leave you exposed. Fortunately I have another idea. My friend in shield has sponsored a team that will go to Doom's castle to tear down his plan from the inside. I can teleport you onto the shuttle that holds that team. Hopefully your skill set will be able to allow us to stop him from using the terrigen in any deadly ways. If you are interested in doing that I can teleport you in when you're ready. Right as you start to answer Magik interrupts. Sorry, but um is there anything you learned about Wolverine? I'm just worried Stryker already killed her.

"The others have experience on their side and tenacity, it will surely see them through.  I just hope they don't waste time looking for me... I didn't get time to announce my withdrawal."

As matters turned to the Doombots, Revanche frowned.  She didn't know much about Dr Doom, except that he was a much feared dictator.  Whatever he had planned for the Terrigan would not be good for Mutants (or humanity).

"I'm available, Magick.  You can rely upon me to represent our cause, especially where Terrigan is concerned.  These robots will prove resistant to my standard fighting style... so I'll dash down to the armory again."


Taking her leave, Revanche marched down to the armory and began looking through all the gear stored within.  A sword capable of penetrating robots was what she sought, whether it was technologically enhanced or just constructed from something that was harder than steel.  And this time she took some Plastic Explosives (and timers) for demolition work, slipping them into an empty belt canister.  A few minutes later, Revanche returned to Magick for another teleportation.

"Ready.  Do I need any passwords to identify myself as friendly to these others?  I'm sure they will at least hear me out, after I mention what is happening in Miami."

Don't worry. I will join your friends shortly. We have a ship right outside of the city. After dropping you off I will teleport there and then I will go to your friends. Hopefully we can stop Doom's plans here before he can claim the Terrigen. As you move to get a sword you are disappointed to discover that none of the swords look like they will do the job. As you return you see Magik holding a sword out to you. Take this. It is from my own collection. I believe you will find it suitible to your coming task. As for your arrival on the ship my friend will inform his group before we join them. She waits and then hears a beep from her waist. They are ready. With that she holds out her hand to you. As you grab she says. Good luck. Make our kind proud.

Move to the Battlecarrier thread.

Revanche took the sword and tested its weigh and balance.  It was indeed a fine weapon, one that she hoped to return to Magick in one piece.  She sheathed it.

"This is a great honor, my thanks."


And then she felt herself disappearing again
