bird. He was a nerdy-looking guy with dark rimmed galsses and a
serious case of male pattern baldness. He akwardly balanced a baby
carrier in one arm, and a diaper bag in the other but quickly tried
to pass them off to his son, who was still frozen by Creed's
Simon was the next to get a close look at the giant mutant. Without
hesitation, he took Lehnsherr by the arm and pulled him aside,

the fucking note.' "Roy!" his father shouted from inside the
elevator, "Remember your mother's no..." the door closed on him
