Phoenix:
X-Men! No longer am I the woman you knew! I am life in carnage! I am Phoenix!

Wolverine:
Gruuu!

Cyclops:
Jean!

[X-Men and Phoenix face off]

Cyclops:
Jean! Don’t let it take you over! Fight it!

[X-Men vs. Phoenix]

Beast:
Professor, I’m afraid we’ve bleached the point. There’s nothing more we can do here. Jean is no longer in control.

Professor X:
She is not responding to my telepathic calls. Hunk, there’s something terribly wrong. It must be the Inner Circle. They’ve… they’ve done something to her.

Wolverine:
Jean is an Omega-Level Mutant. If she goes supernova, we’re all dead!

Cyclops:
No…Nooooo!!!

Storm:
Wait! Cyclops, what are you doing?!

Cyclops:
Jean! I know you’re in there!

Storm:
Jean, don’t do this…

Cyclops:
Please… please…

Jean:
Scott…

Cyclops:
Huh? Jean?

Jean:
It has to be done… you have to kill me…

Cyclops:
You know I can never do that!

Jean:
I’m a hanging by a threat. I can feel it taking over. Pardon me you like me…

Cyclops:
Don’t let them control you! You can fight them! I believe in you!

Jean:
I’m sorry…

Cyclops:
No! That’s just Mastermind’s talking! Please, don’t do this!

[Cyclops saw the visual of Emma Frost]

Cyclops:
Emma… Emma Frost! What the hell are you doing to Jean! Jean! I love you!

Storm:
What’s happening to her body?!

Wolverine:
Ugggh…

Beast:
She is powering up! We need to leave!

Cyclops:
Fight it! You have to fight it!

Jean:
I love you… I always will.

Cyclops:
Jean!!!

[Phoenix disappeared]

Cyclops:
Nooooo!!!

Mastermind:
[sneering]


The Return - 集結


Professor X:
When I created the Xavier Institute, I thought it would be a safe haven for those of us who are… different… those of us born with the X-gene. Some insisted we were the next step on the evolutionary ladder that our genetic gift somehow made us better. But those gifts also led to our kind being ostracized by the rest of humanity. I would hope the Institute would allow young Mutants of place to be themselves… somewhere to learn about their powers without feel a prosecution for the better man of the human and Mutant alike. The X-Men are… “were” my crowning achievement. Both faculty and part of my elite strike force believing in my dream with all of their hearts. They were so dedicated to making peaceful co-existence between man and Mutant a reality. But, look at us now. It’s been nearly a year since the Inner Circle tried to destroy us. Nearly a year since they almost succeeded. We lost one of our best and brightest that day. One of our family. A loss from which we yet to recover.

[In dream]

Children:
[Crying]

Professor X:
What is it, children? Now, come here every one. You’re scared? I understand. But please, don’t worry. Whatever happened in the past, no one’s going to hurt you here. I will keep you safe.

[Professor X saw a boy still crying]

Professor X:
That goes for you too. As nothing to be afraid of… Wait… I can’t read your thought! Why? Who are you?

[Professor woke up from the dream]

Professor X:
A dream… The same dream again and again.


Hisako:
Who’s there?! Where are you?!

[Cyborg injects virus to Hisako]

Sublime:
There we go.

[Hisako collapsed]

Professor X:
When did this happen? I see… No, I’m glad you called. In fact, I’m being waiting for a good excuse to reassemble the team. As soon as I can do so, we’ll look into it. Not at all.

[Professor X sends a message for X-Men members]


Man:
Pirates!

Woman:
What do they want?!

Pirates:
Put off and stop aside!

Man:
We were screwed… we’re all gonna die… that’s how these things always end…

Storm:
Excuse me, everyone. I got this.

Man:
Ugh… okay…

[Storm freezes over the pirates’ ship]

Storm:
You just don’t get between a girl and her cruise.

Passengers:
Yeah!

Man:
Oh! That was amazing! But you’re one of those X-Men aren’t you?

Storm:
May be.

[Calling]

Storm:
Excuse me… it’s about time…


[Academia]

Beast:
In short, as my research makes of it, it is possible to enhance the intelligence of the elastic invertebrate such as squid to the same level of that of the averaged human. Even a little… above averaged.

Students:
[Laughing]

Beast:
Perhaps I can best demonstrate my point by putting this microphone into the tank and so that he can speak with us.

Student:
Seriously? Talking squid?

Student:
The talks lasted this time!

[Calling]

Student:
They can take request?

Beast:
I’m afraid, I must leave early. So I’ll handle you over to my new teaching assistant, Mr. Cephlapone.

Student:
That squid gonna finish his lecture?

Student:
Hahahahaha…

Squid:
Calm down, every one. Now, well, well if… I have the Neuron Diplomat expect of call me to your intelligent. Will there any questions?


[Airport]

Announcement:
Flight one-eighty-one, Madripoor now board with the X-twenty-three.

[Security alarm]

Wolverine:
Oh, come on. What do you want?

Guard:
I’m afraid I’ll have to ask you to empty your pocket, sir.

Wolverine:
Listen, you’re not gonna find anything on me okay? Trust me.

Guard:
Empty your pocket into the trays or we’ll have to. Your pocket sir…

Wolverine:
Lady, the problem isn’t in my pants…

[Wolverine shows his Adamantium Claws]

Wolverine:
Okay, now you see them. Will good?

Guard:
Well, I…

[Calling]

Wolverine:
You’re in luck sister. I’m not gonna be taking that flight after all. Looks like I’m heading to New York.


Storm:
Hello, Charles.

Professor X:
Welcome home, Ororo.

Storm:
I’ve missed you.

Wolverine:
You know, if some of us in got things to do, Chack… I was supposed to in my way to Madripoor. So how’s it going? Still bold I see.

Professor X:
Logan. Welcome.

Beast:
I can’t tell you how happy I was to get your call. Which mean faculty meanings and dining hall food, Academia can’t get rather dull.

Professor X:
It’s good to have you all back again.

Storm:
But, where’s Scott?

Professor X:
It would seem he is not quite ready to return to us yet.


Professor X:
Last week, a teenage girl named Hisako Ichiki went missing in Tohoku, the north eastern part of Honshu Japan Main Island. The police have run into some… problems. So her parent contacted me.

Storm:
If they called you, Charles… Then does that mean the girl is…

Professor X:
Yes… one of us… Though she only exhibited her powers one time when she was very young.

Beast:
That’s unusual.

Professor X:
While the X-gene runs in her family, neither her father who is old friend of mine nor her mother have any Mutant powers. Never the less, their keenly aware that she does. I may fear that her disappearance might have something to do with that.

Wolverine:
Probably a runaway. Why don’t we just let the cops handle this?

Professor X:
The problem is… every detective who has been assigned to the case has met with the sudden untimely demise. That’s why no progress has been made.

Beast:
The obvious influence being that someone doesn’t want this girl found.

Storm:
Someone who’s hunting Mutants…

Professor X:
According to the girl’s father, there has been a surge in mutant activity in the aria recently. Furthermore, I even more puzzling I detect no such activity there when I use Cerebro.

Wolverine:
Huh. Big deal. Your gismo is probably just gotta warn out do headgear or something. Haha… And you ain’t get any younger yourself, Charley.

Storm:
Oh, glow up! Hagh…

Wolverine:
Keep your way gone. I’m just pulling this chain.

Beast:
Professor, are you suggesting that we should go to Japan ourselves? Look into the matter?

Professor X:
I find it very difficult to believe that everything that happening is merely the product of random coincidence. So, yes. I want the X-Men to go to Japan and find this girl.

Storm:
I agree something has to be done, Charles. But, what about Scott? We’re not the X-Men without Cyclops.


Wolverine:
Unbelievable… Don’t tell me you’ve been hanging out here this whole time. Where do you take it dump?


Beast:
There’s nothing wrong with Cerebro that I can find.

Professor X:
No other areas seem to be effected. All mutant activity shows up clearly. It’s only Tohoku with it comes at blank.

Beast:
Perhaps something or someone has cloaking the area preventing for being scanned.

Professor X:
Whatever it is, it may be connected to Hisako’s disappearance.

Beast:
Well, we’ll find out soon enough once we get to Japan.

Professor X:
Hummm…

Beast:
By the way, is it wise to send Logan to fetch Scott considering their rather bumpy history?

Professor X:
You’ll notice I may sure. Ororo went with him.


Cyclops:
I can’t fight anymore… you need a reason to fight, not lost mine.

Storm:
Scott, snap out of it. Who has said anything about fighting? We’re just going to look for a missing teenage girl.

Wolverine:
Immure boy wants to spend his life crying about something happened a year ago. Let him…

Storm:
Logan!

Wolverine:
Oh, come on. Listen to him will ya? For a self-pity. He’ll be useless to us anyway. Yacks, like he owns her but Jean meant nothing to the rest of us. Well there’s one thing I know for sure bob… Jeanie will die over again if she saw the way you’re acting.

Cyclops:
UGH!

[Cyclops’ Optic Blast hits Wolverine]

Storm:
Stop this!

Wolverine:
Hey Cyche! What I do? Hit the nerve? You know that might have stun a little bit more for my Healing Factor.

Cyclops:
You wanna feel real pain? Say her name again…

Wolverine:
Jean... GRUAH!

Storm:
That’s enough! Why do you have to be such a guy and pretending you don’t care?! Is it that hard to admit that you’ve been worried about him as the rest of us? Please, we have to find her. She is out there somewhere all alone. If we don’t find this girl, nobody will. There’re still people that need you, Scott. The X-Men need you. You know what’s what Jean would’ve wanted. Well, you know where will be.


Jean:
So beautiful… so far away… Strange to think that some of the stars when looking at them is their dead for thousands of thousands of years… and makes you realize where we stand. Just how small all our troubles are or a scheme of things. How incredibly brief our lives are. Live to try make the most of every moment because we were given so few of them.


Storm:
What is it?

Wolverine:
I recognize that smell anywhere.

[Cyclops appears]

Wolverine:
Well, well… it isn’t the guy who put his shoulder pants and tights back in fashion.

Cyclops:
Yeah, why I couldn’t miss admitting of your… witty ripper taint.

Wolverine:
Hagh…

Professor X:
The X-Men have received a call for a help and we answer every call, whether from Mutant or human. Right now, there’s a young girl in Japan who desperately needs us. Welcome back… to the X-Men.


Wolverine:
You sure you okay? It’s ain’t some crazy death wish is it, Cyche?

Cyclops:
Huh! Allows while you handle that bike of yours and you’re worried about my driving?

Wolverine:
Yeah, yeah…

<Preview>
