Quentin Quire rolled his eyes as soon as Ms Guthrie turned around to accentuate a word choice in the Dickens passage she was reading from. He'd been bored stiff the whole hour, having already lifted any interesting insights Husk might have about the subject
from her mind before the class even began. Usually he got admonished for that, but Rachel Grey seemed to be otherwise focused this afternoon. As a result, he got to sit in a room with 30 mindless drones, his 'fellow students' and listen to a hillbilly girl
act like she knew about literature, otherwise Wolverine or Captain America or Giant Man or someone would lobotomise him. Because he dared to speak out, to disagree, to tell the truth and, with a little telepathic... nudging, convince the rank and file to join
He turned and took in the one good thing about the new Jean Grey School. Idie. The heat manipulating girl had a curious self-loathing that should've disgusted Kid Omega, but her beauty outshone that. By which he was perfectly willing to admit that he was overlooking
her issues because she was hot in ways other than her powers! Which got him thinking. If sex could even warp his own immense, focused intellect to bypass it's normal logic, maybe the stuck-up fascists who ran things were the same. Maybe his revolution should
focus on the social, not the political change that was needed!
Later, Quire snuck into Hank McCoy's lab, having pilfered the codes and disarming protocols from a sleeping Toad. It was common knowledge than Beast was an Avenger, but didn't go on 'official' missions for them, which had piqued Quentin's interest. At first,
just because it was a sign of government interference and obstruction, but then because he reasoned a scientist of Dr McCoy's calibre must be needed on covert missions to examine sensitive materials. The kind that might make the coming change easier to affect.
And then he saw it. A sliver of something he'd read about. Not as impressive as having the whole thing, but with his own prodigious mental powers behind it... A shard of the Cosmic Cube, splintered off when Bucky Barnes was returned from his conditioned fugue,
would be just the thing. All he had to do was reach past the forcefield and... take it!
His fingers closed around it before the silent alarms went off, and his skin buzzed with the raw power...

ES, I keep trying to pick up the weekend on Sunday morning, but work and such keeps me from working on Rubber Queen. You did guess who I was going to have WW marry
ESchorcho - 10/17/2014 8:20 AM
Going along with CorruptionCentral's theme, I would say the best choices for WW to marry would be Ares, Cheetah or Circe. GAV, do you need me to do anything with Rubber Queen?

GAV: For Wonder Woman I would like to see polar opposites as spouces... Cap & Red Skull, Dr Psycho & Cersi, Reed and Doom. People that want to kill each other but can't act on it due to the contract

If I were to put in a Wonder Woman thread for Waking up in Vegas, who do you guys think she should marry?

Jazze are you going to do something about Waking up in Vegas? Because so far you are piling the women and doing nothing to them. How about their reactions to the ring? I bet it would be more interesting if they had a chance to act.

I've just put up a new chapter for Gwen Stacy: Supervillainess hope you guys are interested. Also I'd be great to see the Buffy in stepford storyline continue.

Spider-man: Supergirl, Oracle, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, Spoiler, Black Canary, Powergirl, Starfire, Huntress, Wonder Woman, Lashina, Cat Grant, Zatanna, Vixen, Raven, Black Bat or Wonder Girl
