"Okay X-Men, today we will be training in the Danger Room," said
Scott Summers, also known as Cyclops as he looked around the ready
room at his team, no his family. "The purpose of these exercises is
to work on our strengths, as well as our weaknesses; of fighting
independetly and as a single, cohesive unit."
Next to Cyclops was Storm, her white hair constrating her dark skin.
She was wearing her traditional uniform, black trimmed with white and
a cape that was connected by bands on her wrists. Crouching next to
her and holding her hand was Nightcrawler. Unlike the rest of the team
(with the exception of Chamber) Kurt Wagner could not "blend in" with
normal society; as he had blue skin and a tail. Where on the rest of
there uniforms there was white trim, his was red, "Just one more way
to be different" Kurt thought to himself. He looked at Storm and
thanked God she and Jean had found him in Boston, he had found
someone who would love him as he was, and a family that would do the
Next to Kurt were Iceman, Rogue, and Wolverine. Logan looked calm,
almost peaceful, a cigar hanging from his mouth; though the team knew
it was the calm before the storm(pun intended) as his berserker rage
was well known. Rogue had inadvertently touched Chamber a few weeks
ago, and now had the ability to fly, which meant there were even more
gifts that young Jonothon Starsmore had not yet discovered himself.
Bobby was holding Rogue's hand, he had recently started working on
turning his entire body to ice, much like Colossus did with his
Completing the circle was Chamber, Colossus, and Banshee. Starsmore
had a yellow trim on his uniform, with no wrapping and a hole in the
uniform covering the body cavity from the bottom half of his face to
his chest his psionic energy had created when it mainfested. The
energy flowed freely giving the room a blue glow. Colossus, unlike
the rest of the team only had the pants of the uniform with a vest,
both black, trimmed with white. He had already activiated his
mutation, the steel covering his body gleaming like silver. And
finally, Banshee had a uniform similar to Logan's along with a cape
like Storm's that had white lines running down the black material.
The team entered the Danger Room and Professor Xavier was up in the
control room. "My X-Men, so much has changed recentlyl Jean passing
away, Kurt, Sean and Jonothon coming to the school," But the dream is
still here as we are." he thought to himself. - Remember to
concentrate on your objectives in training, work together - he told
Various holograms and mechcanical devices came at the X-Men,
seemingly all at once, but they were a team. They immediately split
off into teams: Scott, Rogue, and Kurt in one, Bobby, Colossus and
Banshee in the second, and Jon and Logan and Storm in the third.
Rogue, Storm and Sean immediately started flying, taking some of the
robots' focus off the ones on the ground, Sean's sonic yell breaking
some of the robots to pieces, Storm frying them with lighting or
throwing them into walls with high speed winds, and Rogue flying
around and Kurt porting in and out of the targets reaches, just
distracting them long enough for Cyclops or Chamber to blast them, or
Iceman to freeze them in place. When they were frozen in place,
Colossus would crush them, and Logan would dice them with his claws.
This training went on for minutes, then hours, the team was starting
to dwindle down, but they kept on fighting. One thing none of them
would do is go down with out a fight.
Finally the exercise ended. The team was both physically and
emotionally drained, but they were enthusiatic; they had their
teamwork down almost perfectly. Charles Xavier looked on his team
with pride, they are my X-Men, we who fight for ones who hate and
fear them. - That's enough for today, team now get some rest as I
believe most of you have to either give or take final exams
tomorrow. - Charles told them.
Each of them had different thoughts as they left the Danger Room, but
one thing was uninamious in their minds; that no matter what
happened, they would face it together, as a team and as family.
