Just when things are looking shiny and happy, the storm clouds come in and the rain falls.
Reverend William Stryker came into a lives months ago, masquerading as the Dean of Discipline in our High School. The Reverend was a former S.H.I.E.LD agent and I quickly figured out the real reason he was here; to find mutants and to recruit an army.
He gathered together like-minded sheep, forming support groups for those who hated mutants or who had been wronged by them. From there he recruited strong and suitable soldiers, and with the financial support of the government and S.H.I.E.LD. built a camp in Upstate New York to train civilians into deadly soldiers.
We knew Stryker was a problem but we didn’t know to approach or if it was an immediate problem. As it turned out, it was.
Stryker captured my friends and I, right in the safety of our own school. Now I’m stuck in a prison cell of which the only reprieve I get is when I am brought into an interrogation room. There Stryker, and S.H.I.E.LD agents like Nick Fury, Carol Danvers and Clint Barton are trying to get me and I’m assuming my friends to reveal where Genosha is. They want to invade. They wanted to start a war.
I’m the only one of my friends who hasn’t been captured. I barely escaped Stryker and after some initial freaking out, I got Megan, Josh’s teleporter girlfriend, and came up with a plan to break my friends out. But first I needed the one help. I needed Magneto. Lucky for me, he agreed to help, bringing his posey of evil mutants with him.
But my friends and I weren’t the only ones attacked. Sentinels had bombed Xavier’s California Institute, killing countless students. Jean Grey sent the survivors, including Josh’s sisters and Lily’s brother, over to help break out the captured mutants.
I was going to rescue my friends. I was going to take down William Stryker. He tricked me this year. He manipulated me, befriended me, made me feel like he cared about me. I’m going to save my friends and I’m going to end him.
