The Unites Nations, New York City
Like the rising of the sun, the end of the world returned.
As it always had. As it always will.
Annihilation came in many forms for humanity, often disguised as a savior; but simply too extreme to justify their goals. But in each dark moment, those who would fight to the end stood tall.
Those who would oppose and refuse to allow the last chapter of the human saga to be written and lost to time, like an old book, collecting dust within a labyrinth of libraries.
A culmination of events had caused everybody on planet earth to combine their resources and take Iceland. Spawning a new empire, the legacy of which was still being written.
But now the inhabitants of planet earth would have to face a new threat - One from the stars, one unlike any other before....
....But humanity would not be ill-prepared...
...At least so the messenger hoped.
Five minutes prior to addressing the United Nations
The international community had been summoned to the UN headquarters by the new Chancellor of Iceland, the request legitimized by allies that X had amassed within the United Stations of America and other nations, the world unaware of what they were about to be told.
The Devil's Heir in this moment, may have been easily mistaken as an altruistic individual.
A man poised to inform the world of a threat out of nothing but survival and survival itself.
Alone, the late Supreme Chancellor's son knew that he could not defeat the Time Siphons, but together?
The entire might of the world, combined like they had done in toppling Iceland? A nation so powerful not even the world's last superpower, the United States of America could defeat alone, had been devastated beyond belief by the unmitigated power of Earth.
A mere glimpse of what dominance a combined planet held.
But X knew that given the chance offered in the wake of this invasion.... He would gambit the very fate of the world.
All, for his mutant bredrin.
The address: Prepare or Perish
The Maestro of Magnetism stood, overlooking the entire combined political weight of the world.
A few mere months ago and X was a relatively unknown entity. But now? A man with enough support and sobriety to address the globe.
The United Nation's had been convened. For what may be the most important discussion in human history.
Or the last.
"Excellencies, distinguished delegates, Mr Secretary General, ladies and gentlemen, today I will not start this address by historically stating what an honor it is to speak before you. The 71st session of the General Assembly of the United Nations is one of calamity, one of obligation."
His studious eyes glowered red, making sure to look into every camera, every eye -- His voice echoed through the room like a titan. "A session which will mark, not the first, but hopefully the second united front of humanity. We call this the United Nation's despite a senseless number of wars raging outside these prestigious walls. There is a threat coming from the stars, ladies and gentlemen, and only a united Earth may stand in it's way. We have done it before." Behind him a screen showed the images of Iceland. The fall of Iceland. X spoke. "And we must do it again."
But he knew, where he stood and spoke for power, other would scrutinize and speak of conspiracy. X was addressing the world, a combined world. Many had lots to lose in peace, power... Money. "Even without my gifts, I can sense the suspicion and doubt within your minds. Many of you would sooner hide than face the truth. But know this. A threat known only as the Time Siphons comes to enslave this world. Their reign of terror stretches across time and space and they bring with them an armada of mercenary warriors drawn from almost one hundred different races. They control the very fabric of time which we are bound by. We must prepare, and if we do not? We will perish."
At the conclusion of his introduction an array of documents, expertly presented and delivered to each person standing, sitting or merely residing within the room was offered. The documents were twelve pages long and filled with indubitable and conclusive proof that an alien force was coming to invade the earth. Both government and independent authorities commenting, renowned telepathic figureheads pointed in the right direction by X, allowed to access the insight which he had when sensing this threat. All data, combined, pointed in one single direction.
If only X had known.... That the Time Siphons, were already here...
