Uncanny X-Men #8 cover by Chris Bachalo
What on Earth would ever make you think I would join you? In the past in which I come from you are one of my biggest foes. It might be just a memory or memories to you, but it’s all so recent to me. I’d never join you, Magneto. Never. No matter who you are allied with now.
You have a lot to learn, Miss. Grey. You will team up with me, and you yourself will become far worse a monster than I ever was. But you continue to sit on your high horse and pretend that I might care about what happened in those days.
Besides, I bet you never thought one of your own would side with me and yet look at my team. Is Warren evil for siding with me? No, he simply chooses to fight for his freedom and a chance at survival. Sooner or later, you will see that I am right.
“I said, like, two things to you, ass.”
“Two words to many. And watch the language, we are adults. Try acting like one.”
“Where do you people keep coming from?”
“Listen, I want to keep this as cordial as possible. Things aren’t great, pal. They aren’t great for you. They aren’t great for me. Why don’t we leave the puffed up chests for another day? Give me tonight, and I promise we can beat the hell out of each other some other time.”
“You people? You are really just piling, Mister Barton.”
“I think you mean, when I beat the crap out of you. But alas this meeting was not on my list of things to do, Mr.Barton. I have no intention of having you waste my time any further.”
“I kinda like the change.”
“Welcoming to whom, Clint Barton? To those who aren’t being hunted down day and night just for existing?”
Welcome, Miss. Grey. Have you come to join the cause?
THERE WILL BE MUCH PAIN AND SUFFERING!
One of Howlette’s little sheep has lost their way. The little lie comes before Magneto. Why?
And then there was nine. The elders will fall and the children will follow.
And I don’t even have to lift a finger. How displeasing.
