X-men Supreme Begins Today

Happy New Year true believers! The time has come! A new era is dawning and a new Marvel Universe is being born. Today on the first day of this new year, X-men Supreme has begun. On both my fanfiction account and my main website, the first issue of the first volume has been posted. For any of you X-men fans or fans of superheroes in general, I hope you check it out! Here's a quick sample of the first issue:

“Professor?” said Scott Summers as he stepped in to greet his mentor.

“Yes Scott. Come in,” he said kindly.

“I just came to let you know that she’s here.”

“Excellent. Let’s not keep her waiting then,” said the Professor, wheeling himself away from his desk.

Riding in his wheelchair, he followed his eldest student towards the elevator. This was an exciting time for his institute. The X-men had matured a great deal since the formation of the team. The time was now ripe for expansion. And today they were set to welcome a new member.

“So what’s this new teacher like?” asked Scott as he and his mentor rode the elevator down to the ground floor, “Hank’s been talking about her a lot.”

“Yes, he’s been corresponding with her for nearly six months. She’s a graduate student fresh out of college and I’ve been looking forward to her arrival. I believe she will make a fine addition to the institute.”

“What about her joining the team?” asked Scott, “Did Beast tell her what we do outside the classroom?”

“Yes, she is well aware of our extracurricular activities so to speak. But that has done nothing to dissuade her. She seems very much enthused about using her powers to make a difference.”

“Think she’ll feel that way after a round in the Danger Room?” said Scott.

Xavier let out a light sigh as the elevator reached the ground floor. The duties of the X-men were not to be taken lightly. Living in a world that was weary and untrusting of mutants was a challenge in and of itself, but trying to do good when they faced so much scrutiny took a special kind of spirit.

“I would hope she is not put off by the more challenging nature of our work,” said Xavier as they wheeled down the hall, “With the way things are we could use all the help we can get.”

“You make it sound as though we’re a handful, Professor,” joked Scott.

“Oh it’s not you I’m worried about. It’s the ever-increasing complexity of our task that concerns me. But that’s why we need allies and Ororo Munroe is the perfect woman for the job.”

“How do you figure?”

“Because I’ve seen what she’s capable of. She has the capacity to do good with her powers. She just needs an opportunity.”
