The Purest Of Pain: Chapter 2
Note: This is my first ever fanfic I would like you to
read it and tell me how bad it is so I can learn to
write as good as the rest of you. Oh and this is the
response to the challenge to show Cyclops in a darker
image. I'm really a Cyke fan and normally would not
portray him this way.
Disclaimer: none of these characters are mine they are
Marvel's and God knows I'm not making any money off of this.
“I defeated you once before Scott Summers and I shall do it
again.” Ororo states with authority and a shaken confidence.
“Very well you shall be granted this opportunity but at my convenience
not yours.” He states with the arrogance of an already victorious
champion. He and his new minions then vanish. Logan gathers her to join
the other X-Men to regroup and they flee in shock.
“Oh, and remember my dear Ororo, Madelyne is not here to help you this
A lot of questions arose on the way home in the blackbird. What has
happened to the man they once knew as their leader? How did he make his
new team vanish? Does he have new powers? What about Jean? These are all
questions that raced through their heads. Cable did not know what to
think. Storm was obviously in disarray. Logan was calm as usual. X-Force
and Gen-X went back to the mansion just as clueless as any. Although
there was one man who seemed more hurt, distraught, and angered than
anyone. His name Warren Worthington. This man was his friend. This man
also took his first love from him by marrying him and now killing her.
To infuriate him more the one he affectionately called Slim has taken
his new love as his own: Betsy Braddock, Psylocke.
The plane just landed and the X-Men were in the War Room. when a
distress call went out over the Astral Plane.
“X-Men help Cyclops has…………….”
Cable jumped up, “I know that voice, it is….was the Shadow King.”
“So you try’n ta tell us dat’ lil’old Scott Summers killed the
Shadow King, you crazy mon ami,” Gambit contributed.
“That would explain Betsy holdin’ that Psychic Knife like she was
ready to pounce,”Logan chided in.
“The truth is we just don’t know what is going on,” Kurt added.
“I just can’t picture’im doing sumthin’ like this without bein’
influenced by someone.” Rogue stated with ever so much hope.
“I KNOW WHAT”S GOING ON, AND IT MUST BE STOPPED NOW!”
There eyes lit up as they saw Warren Worthington barge into the war room
in full uniform and to everyone’s amazement he was again laced with
“Warren, what is this revelation of your old wings?” Storm said
speaking for the first time among tears for her fallen teammate.
“You all forget I was created by Apocalypse in a way, I shared a
connection with him. I know what happened to Scott.”
“Well, quit stallin’ sugah and spill your guts,” Rogue anxiously
“What??????” they said in unison.
“Nothing. Scott has always had these tendencies he just never had the
power or the confidence in himself to carry them out. That all changed
when he killed Apocalypse.”
“That’s right Scott killed Apocalypse and used us as a sham to make
his ascension to high lord seem like it was induced by the incident and
we would go easy on him. Scott has now inherited the power of each
member of the Twelve, he has reached the state Apocalypse only dreamed
of. Scott wants nothing in his way to cloud his judgement which is why
Jean lays dead. The rapport the share is now dead using his powers he
single handedly killed the Shadow King therefore resurfacing the love
Betsy shared for him in the past. For this he will die. And he will soon
for if we don’t stop Scott before he grasps his powers Ol’ Fearless
will have nothing to fear and THE WORLD WILL BE HIS”
