X-Men 5: The Day of Futures Past
“Time is infinite, fleeting. History is rigid like stone, but time is as water, constantly in motion. Nothing n this world is set. What is and what will never be all depends on the smallest of actions. Time travelers come and go, like time they are always in motion. Their actions could turn lifetimes into not but days of futures past.”
New York City. Approximately 30 years in the future:
A hooded young girl silently ran through dark and desolate streets, passed broken store windows and the remains of ruined cars, some of which were still burning. She held a case tightly to her chest as she looked back over her shoulder to see light gleaming off eyes that watched her from the alleyways. She heard a loud booming roar from overhead. She looked up in terror to see the fearsome sight of three Sentinels flying overhead. They landed around her, blocking her off. She looked in terror as one of the Sentinels spoke in a cold mechanical voice “Halt Mutant. We are aware that you are carrying a contraband item and are in violation of the Manhattan Island Penitentiary curfew. Hand over the item and report to the nearest detainment center or we will be force to terminate your life with extreme prejudice.”
The mutant girl smiled and raised an arm. Suddenly the Sentinel that had just spoken was hurled backwards into a building, which collapsed on top of it. It rose to its feet with a girder sticking from its chest, and exploded. The other two were about to open fire on her and aimed deadly looking energy weapons at her, when one of them began sparking. She looked away quickly as the head exploded, causing the Sentinel to spin and fall as it fired. Its blast struck the other Sentinel, sending it backwards. As it was about to stand the girl raised her hand and two buildings on either side of the street collapsed on top of it. The girl shook her head and saw that her hood had fallen off, revealing her short red hair. She turned back to the Sentinel whose head had exploded to see the form of a middle-aged woman with brown hair with streaks of grey rise from the remains of the Sentinel.
The red haired girl smiled at her friend “Thanks Shadowcat, but I had them.” Shadowcat, which is the codename of Kitty Pryde, shook her head “Rachel we have to hurry, Forge needs those parts now!” Rachel nodded as they rushed off into the night.
They later entered a dilapidated looking building and entered a hidden elevator, which exited into a complex looking lab. Rachel laid the case on a table near an elderly looking Native American man with a mechanical arm and leg. As she did, an extremely old man rolled up to her in a wheelchair and spoke with a raspy voice “Did you find it child?” Rachel nodded “Yes Erik, I did, Forge has it now.” The ancient Mutant closed his eyes and quietly said “Good. Soon this nightmare will be over.” Kitty pushed his wheelchair out of the way and turned to Rachel “Poor man. He was once Magneto, one of the most powerful beings on the planet, now he is just a husk. Broken, like everything else in this world.”
Forge grunted as he installed a component into a seven-foot tall metal archway. He closed a service door on it and it sputtered to life. He turned to Rachel and Kitty “Well Kate, if Rachel is successful, none of this will ever have happened. I hate to send you back kid, rather go myself, but we can’t go back because I don’t know if there being two of me of two Kate Pryde’s may cause a temporal anomaly. So it’s up to you kid.” Kitty turned to her friend “Remember everything we have taught you. We will be sending you back just before Trask’s death. You have to stop Gambit from killing him.”
Rachel nodded and walked up to the portal “This is it, isn’t it? I’ll never see any of you again.”
Kitty nodded as she brushed a grey hair from her face “Good luck Rachel.”
The aged form of Magneto rolled over to them “Good luck child and tell your parents when you see them that I am truly sorry for everything I did.” Magneto said.
Forge looked at Rachel “Ready kid? And remember this is a one way trip and this tech might not stand a second trip so you’re on your own back there.”
Rachel nodded “I have to. All of our hopes and our species depend on it.” She looked down at the ground as a tear rolled down her cheek “I love you all and I hope I succeed, even though it means we will have never existed.” She said as she raised her head and stepped into the portal.
Now, New York City:
In a dark alley, a homeless man looked up in fear as bright bolts of energy began sparking around him he ran screaming as a young redheaded woman appeared from the air and landed roughly on the concrete. She looked around herself confused. She stood and vomited on the ground. She wiped her mouth with her arm, stumbled over to a discarded newspaper, and checked the date “it worked.” She mumbled to herself as she saw the headline “BOLIVAR TRASK MOVES TO GENOSHA TO OVERSEE SENTINEL PROGRAM” She stood and stumbled out into the street mumbling “Got to find the X-Men. Gotta get to Muir Island.” Rachel stumbled down the street and got on a bus that was boarding.
As the bus pulled away, energy began sparking in the alley again, this time no living creature came through though. This time a fearsome metallic creature came through; it was a rather bulky robot about seven feet tall. It landed on the ground and scanned the area “Target not detected. Initiate infiltration mode.” With that, the robot’s body began to shift, the metal almost dissolving as it collapse upon itself. Eventually it changed into a man wearing a simple black shirt and a leather jacket. Nimrod then walked out into the street.
Gambit looked over his shoulder as he ran through a sewer tunnel, he glanced around him in panic at the dead bodies of the Morlocks, and he looked again and saw that they weren’t just the Morlocks, but the X-Men were among the dead. He heard a dark laughter behind him “Do you think you can run from me Gambit? You may as well run from yourself. We are alike you and I.” the deep voice said with a sinister laugh. Gambit turned and looked down a tunnel that was pitch black. Gambit pulled out a playing card as he screamed, “You ain’t nothing like Gambit! NOTHIN!” he screamed as he threw the card down the tunnel, rather than explode, the glowing card just blinked out. It was replaced with a set of glowing red eyes and a laugh. Gambit backed away as the terrifying form of Mister Sinister walked out of the tunnel. Sinister laughed, “You know your mission tomorrow will end in disaster. You know that I await you on Genosha, you know death awaits you.” Gambit pulled out a whole deck of cards and charged them “You don’t own me, not anymore!” he said as he threw all of the cards at Sinister, the cards exploded in a flash, filling the tunnel with dust and smoke. Gambit heaved a sigh of relief until he heard a laugh “Ha ha ha! Own you? I am you!” Sinister said as he lunged from the smoke towards Gambit.
