      >at least inform her of the good her service will have rendered. It
      >will prevent the next war, the last war really for out kind. Should
      >the humans win, I have no doubt mutants will be exterminated like
      >vermin as Jews were in the last world war. Prevention of such a
      >thing is certainly something to be proud of.
      > I can still recall the stench of burning flesh, vomit and
      >excrement contained in an area of perhaps three square feet. The
      >long lines entering the showerhouse, without a living soul coming
      >out. Days filled with backbreaking labor and no food. The hatred
      >for our kind etched on the Goose stepper's faces as they stood guard
      >at their posts and randomly shot at anyone crossing their path. I
      >have carried those memories for all these years and I have the
      >distinct impression that such suffering would be brought upon
      >mutantkind as humans turned a blind eye to the past. If all it takes
      >is one life to stop that, then so be it.

      >and would in fact be disappointed should he fail to track us.
      >Sabertooth, Toad and Mystique have all been itching for a good brawl
      >for awhile now. Would hate to disappoint them. Victor certainly does
      >like to fight, and should the one they call the Wolverine accompany
      >the X-Men, I believe he will get his brawl. It is unlikely that they
      >will kill each other, as they are both super healers. However should
      >that come to pass, it would have been their own choice, which is the
      >most dignified way to die.
      > Being martyred is also a most honorable death. The girl may
      >not see that, but I will assure her that mutants will look up to her
      >in awe and be thankful for her sacrifice for centuries to come. It
      >really isn't all that different than fighting for Charles really.
      >Dying for a cause if necessary. Rogue's death will be on a much
      >higher level as it will be for the good of mutantkind.

      >freedom to live and of course the freedom to be accepted are all

      >your death will certainly not be in vain. You are the key too

      >will be magically solved?"
      > "Well not quite. Once the world leaders have been mutated,
      >they will go back to their countries and fight against registration

      >puzzle?"
      > "Not at all dear girl. You are the reason for the puzzle to
      >exist. Without you, there would be no hope for any of us."

      >rash actions cost more than we all can afford really. Mystique
      >posing as Senator Kelly should buy us some time. But I feel a sense

      >cowardice closes in on our kind. Unfortunately, my actions were seen
