It's been a busy week for X-men fanfiction! With X-men Supreme Volume 1 nearing an end I'm pushing my efforts as far as they will go. This series has already turned out better than I could have hoped for. I'm very excited to bring it all together in a memorable way that will do justice to all things X-men. The Uprising arc really picked up steam with the last issue. It's going to pick up even more with this next issue! The battle against Magneto, Cameron Hodge, and the sentinels is about to take on a new and unexpected twist! Some answers will finally come out and some secrets will be revealed. It'll all set the stage for the end of X-men Supreme Volume 1: Mutant Revolution and set things up for X-men Supreme Volume 2. You can find an extended preview of the next issue below. Enjoy!
Also, I updated the pics section of my website. Another new panel has been completed by a very kind artist named Brian Brinlee for Issue 2: Enter the Wolverine. Enjoy!
“We have to get them out of here! They won’t last long at this rate!” said Marvel Girl.
“Are you kidding? I’m not leaving until I get a shot at that prick, Hodge!” yelled Rusty.
“Yeah!” yelled a collection of other prisoners.
Even among the injured, the sentiment was the same. Many wanted a chance to repay Hodge for the suffering he inflicted on them.
“I know you’re all eager to fight back. But it’s not worth risking so many lives!” said Cyclops strongly, “There are too many injured and there’s a chance Hodge has additional forces waiting in the wings!”
“What gives you the right to say what we do with our lives?!” exclaimed Rusty.
“Whoa, calm down, amigo,” coaxed Rictor, “They saved us all. I think they deserve the benefit of the doubt.”
Rusty muttered a curse as he fell silent. That same sentiment resonated as well. The X-men saved them all when they were facing certain death. That leant them credibility at the very least.
“I’m hoping you’ve got a plan here, Cyclops,” said Angel.
“Our plan is the same as the Professor’s,” said the X-leader, “We just have to buy him enough time to get to Hodge.”
“How long will that take?” groaned Rogue.
“I wish I knew,” said Cyclops, “But until we get word from him, we protect as many lives as possible! With any luck these robots won’t get any smarter.”
“Looks like we’ll have plenty of chances to test them, One-eye!” said Wolverine as he looked up towards the top of the dome, “We got more commin’ in for round two!”
“More?!” groaned Kitty, “Hodge must have made these things in bulk!”
They watched as another dozens sentinels flew in through the holes in the dome made earlier. They all set their sites on them and the hoard of mutant prisoners behind them. Cyclops placed his hand on his visor as the rest of the team prepared for another fight.
