Project X: The Birth of Wolverine- Caliban's Story
My name is Caliban. If you want to know why I'm here. Then Caliban knows this much because I can't take it anymore. The other mutants are being tortured by this mad scientist named Dr. Nathaniel Essex. Yes, Caliban knows him well, and I don't like him. He was evil, and he told me that I have to track down other mutants in the world. Caliban does not like the job. But there was no choice. I was captured years ago, and taken by mad scientists of Project X. But the facility that I'm in right now, is entirely different. It's called Neverland.
Neverland is a place that houses mutant prisoners such as me, and others that Caliban knows. I know their powers, and where they are now. Caliban can smell them, and feel what they are doing. The torture was too much. I want to escape. But there was no escape.
I was in the cell alone, and hungry. The guards had given me food a few days earlier. They spit at me, and had said, "Hey Caliban! What does Caliban like to eat?" They laughed, and made fun of me. Caliban does not like humans, who make fun of mutants such as me. I was tired, and didn't say anything to them. Caliban wants to sleep.
Before I got captured by Project X, I have worked with Division X, a government agency that recruits mutants in order to save the world. Caliban likes the job, and a former CIA agent named Malcolm Colcord hired me in the 1950s, and he was the Director of Division X. Now, the year is 1963, the time of John F. Kennedy's assassination. I was sent out to track down other mutants, who can't control their powers, or use their powers for evil. There was one time, I have come to some widow's house for a visit. The woman had secrets that most other women doesn't know. It was a lovely neighborhood. I wore shades to prevent the sunlight from hurting my white skin. I also wore a black suit just like my employer at Division X. And Caliban doesn't want trouble from humans, thinking that I'm different. Malcolm told me, that I had to keep myself undercover, and not cause any harm to fearful humans. They don't understand anything about mutants. Not yet. So I left it at that.
The boy was only 10 years old, and he showed his own powers at an early age. He was in trouble, because the widow's husband had died in World War 2, and now she has some abusive boyfriend living with her, and hitting her, almost everyday. By telling her life story, I thought the boy was also getting hit by the bad man. But it looks like he wasn't hurt. Not at all.
"Does your family know that your son has powers? I have asked her. "How long has it been?" Ever since her widow's husband died, she was pregnant at the time, and her family helped her around the house, and taking care of the child's needs. At that time, she didn't know that her son was a mutant. The term "mutant" wasn't used often, because she didn't know what it meant, or hadn't known about it. She only said this, "My son was different from other children." She just used the word, "different." I also asked her, "Did he have any friends?" She shook her head, and then cried. I didn't do anything to comfort her. Caliban couldn't do it, for she may think that I'm might be dangerous too, just like her son. But she already knows that I'm different because I have told her so.
I have spoken to the boy, while his mother went to make tea in the kitchen. He looked so young that Caliban couldn't imagine at a young age, that he would display such powers. He can reconstruct molecular matter of any object, like fixing things. He accidentally broke a toy, once or twice and made it new. His mother didn't have to sent the toys to a repair shop. I sat down with the boy, and smiled.
The boy didn't smile back. He just played with his toys. He was quiet, and maybe sad. Caliban knows this much. I know what he was like, and what he's doing now. But Caliban does not know what the boy thinks. I can feel the pain, of how life can be different for mutants. I was the same.
The bad man had returned home. He was drunk. I waited in the car. Caliban hates him. I will do something, but not kill him. Malcolm had said, "No, Caliban, you can't kill humans or mutants unless they're too dangerous. Either way, just try and apprehend them. If things get out of hand, kill them. Otherwise, don't. Do you understand?" Yes, I have understood my employer very much. He was nice and treated me well, when he found me on the streets, ever since I was a young child. I was happy. Caliban was happy.
But Caliban was not happy to see this drunk man, arriving at the widow's house. He shouted at the door, saying bad language that even Caliban does not understand. I got out of the car, and came closer to him. The drunk man turned his head around, and saw me. The night was dark. I didn't had shades on. There was no need for it. I don't know if the bad man notice my strange appearance. Other than that, he was just drunk. So I stood there, waiting for his reply.
"Hey! Who are you, and what are you doing here?" I didn't reply back to him. When he came closer to me, he stopped, and said, "Jesus... What are you?" His eyes were bloodshot, and he blinked several times. I can tell he drank too much at some bar, even though I can't really tell of what humans do. But humans like the drunk man was bad enough that I did not want to know. Caliban was glad about it.
"You must leave them," I said. "Or else..."
"Or else what, you freak?" The drunk man said. "You better get out of here. Or I'll call the cops. Do you hear me? Scram!"
I held his hand, and twisted it. He cried out in pain. Yes, Caliban has the strength of a man, who can beat a person up. It was the only way not to kill the bad man. I thought that could be it. But the bad man used his other hand to raise a gun from the back of his pocket. I tried to kick the gun away, but the man backed up a little, and fired a shot. I was hurt. Caliban feels pain, and noticed the blood on the arm. It was not bad, but if he shoots again, Caliban is no more.
The shots woke up some of the neighborhood, and the families were coming out of their houses, and shouting, "What the hell is going on here?" Caliban does not like the sound of this. The drunk man said, "It's that freak! He's trying to kill me!" But I said to them, "No, I only want to save the widow's life, and came here to help her son. The other humans didn't believe me. They argued, and then said, "Somebody call the cops!" The widow finally arrived, and the son also woke up. The widow didn't say anything. The drunk man told her, "Look what that freak did to me! LOOK!" Yes, the widow had looked and then stared at me, as if I'm the monster.
"Jesus Christ!" One of the neighbors said, and covered her mouth. The other human said, "Look at him. What is he?" I didn't say anything. I went back inside my car, and drove away. Caliban failed the mission for the first time.
Division X was a big agency. There were a few mutants working for the government, and I was glad that Caliban wasn't the only one. I had the bad feeling that most human agents would look at me differently. But I guess that I was wrong. They have treated me well.
A man named William Stryker just came out of Malcolm's office, and stared at me. Caliban did not know what he was thinking. After all, he was human. But Caliban can tell he's somewhat bad. I have heard stories about his own son being a mutant, and that Stryker didn't want to talk about it.
"You must be Caliban," Stryker said. I just nodded. He shook hands with me, which I never wanted to do. But I did it for respect. Caliban knows that something was wrong with this man, but I cannot tell. Caliban wished he knew about him.
"Well then," Stryker said. "I must be going now. It's nice to meet you, Caliban. I will see you again." He smiled at that, and left. Caliban was glad that the man left. I came to Malcolm's office, and asked him about Stryker.
"Stryker has been a good friend of mine," he said. "He and I went all the way back." Yes, he have told me, war stories about how Stryker saved Malcolm's life from the Germans. Stryker was one brave man, but Caliban still does not trust him.
Malcolm knew that I did not like Stryker at all. He said, "He's a good man. Trust me. I know it's hard to meet someone like him. But he knows what's best for Division X." I didn't ask him about his son. I left it at that.
I also told Malcolm about the mission. I thought he might be disappointed about the news, but Malcolm said, "That's okay, Caliban. Even agents make mistakes. I don't know what to tell you. But I had to make sure if you can handle this kind of situation. Humans will fear mutants someday, Caliban. You will have to face that fact. And there's probably nothing you can do about it."
I was angry that I couldn't save the widow's life from the bad man. However, when I came back to the house, the woman had killed the drunk man, and for that, she was arrested by the police. She couldn't take anymore of the abuse. And the mutant child was being taken care by her mother's family.
I didn't want to face the widow, as she's being taken by the police. I was mad to see that this has happened. Why didn't she contact the police for being abused? And she only defended herself, and her son. Does anyone in the neighborhood know about it? But one of the neighbors said that the drunk man just walked into the house, and the woman shot her, with his own gun. Just like that.
I have decided to quit Division X, and told Malcolm about it. He understood my feelings, and that I had to leave the agency for good. I said farewell to him, and my former partners. Caliban will not come back.
It was rainy in New York City. I traveled all the way from the countryside of America. It was the time of hippie revolution. Hippies smoked pot, and dance naked around the streets. They camped, and smoked a lot. One hippie said to me, "Hey man, you wanna smoke?" I said, "No, Caliban does not smoke. He wants to find a place to stay." He kept on smoking, and then said, "Okay, you can stay with us. No problem. Right guys?" He looked at the other hippies, and they just nodded their heads, seeming dizzy. Then the man looked at me closer, and said, "Hey man, what happened to your skin?" He has just noticed my appearance. Yes, he was stoned. I said, "I was born with a rare skin condition. You wouldn't understand." The guy didn't say anything much after that. He just smoked, and then had sex with some woman on the grass. I sat there, enjoying the view of New York City. There wasn't much sunlight, so I feel fine. It was peaceful.
I stayed at some rented apartment, where the party kept going on and on. It was a large building, and its owner became angry of the noises, that were disturbing the other occupants. I told the owner, "I don't party with them." And he said, "Sure, Sure. Whatever." He was a bald and obese man. He looked at me closely and said, "Man, you look sick. What happened to you?" I sighed, and didn't say anything back. I want to leave. Caliban does not like this place.
There was one time, I almost had sex with some woman. She was so stoned that she didn't care what I looked like, and have sex with. I said, "Caliban does not want to have sex right now. He's in a bad mood." The hippie woman didn't say anything back. She just laughed as if Caliban said a joke to her. I don't say jokes. I was still in a bad mood because there was no good place to go. All I see is smoking pot, having sex, and drinking a lot of booze.
In the night, I drove alone, leaving the hopeless hippies behind. It was good to leave. But I still wonder where I have to go. I ended up in some bar, wanting to drink. Does Caliban drink? I don't know, but I will try it.
I ordered the drink. The bartender looked at me for a while. He must be thinking, What the hell is he? And what is he doing here? There were other people looking at me. Caliban does not want trouble. I just want to drink, but it taste awful. Caliban does not like it.
I closed my eyes, and then slept for a while. Then I woke up, and felt that there were two mutants on the bar. I looked at them, drinking their beers. Caliban had a bad feeling about this. Whoever they are, they may not be friends at all. They must have come for me. I laid the cash on the counter, and was about to leave. But the mutant named Logan stopped me. He said, "Hey bub, what's up? You're goin' somewhere?"
I didn't reply back to the wild mutant. I know his powers, and what he can do. The other wild mutant, who had long blond hair, stared at me, while drinking his beer. He said, "The guy asked you a question!" He burped.
"You betta watch your manners, Vic," Logan said. "It's disgusting." Victor Creed laughed and said, "And you don't burp? Gimme a break, will you? You don't tell me what to do, Logan. Do you hear me? So shut the hell up!" Logan shook his head, and then looked at me. He said, "Don't mind him. Come sit down, and let's talk."
"What do we have to talk about?" I said to Logan. "Is it important?" Logan looked at me with his fierce eyes, and drank the rest of his beer. He slammed it on the table. The other customers jumped, including the bartender. Logan said, "Listen, pal. We don't have time to argue. So why don't we just chat for a while. Okay? You gotta problem with that?"
I sighed, and decided to let them talk, and see what they were up to. On the other hand, Victor Creed was still staring at me. He burped again, louder than the first one. This time, Logan had not said anything about it.
I sat down, and waited for Logan to speak up. After a while, he said, "You know Stryker?" I was stunned to hear that name. I did not know what else to expect. But there it was. I nodded and said, "Yes, I know him." Logan ordered another glass of beer. A young waiter arrived at our table, trying not to look at us, as if he was afraid. I can tell by the look on his face. But my appearance scared him the most. He was shaking all over.
"Hey kid, watch that drink!" Logan said. He grabbed the glass from the waiter's hands, before it spilled. The young man gulped, and left us immediately.
"Are you going to tell him, Logan?" Victor said. "Because we haven't got all night. Stryker is expecting..."
"Just shut up!" Logan said, interrupting his partner's words. He sipped his beer, and looked at me. "Okay, bub. Here's the deal. You come with us, and we'll take good care of ya." He sipped the beer again. "So whaddya say?"
I thought for a while, and decided not to come with them. But it looks like that kind of thing won't happen. Because Logan knew that look, and shook his head.
"I'll give ya a warning, Caliban," Logan said. "I know who you are. So don't play hide and seek. Okay? You betta come with us, or we'll have to drag your butt outta here. You hear me?"
"What do you want with me?" I said. I had to know what these two mutants want me for. Even the man known as William Stryker, who had sent them after me.
"We'll tell you, once you come with us," Victor said. "Just listen and be reasonable. There won't be any problem. Right, Logan?" He grinned.
Logan didn't say anything to his partner. He drank the rest of the beer, and got up. "Okay, pal. Let's go." He threw some cash on the table. I followed them, and looked back at the bar. Everyone stared at us.
And here I am, Caliban the prisoner of all mutant prisoners. I have tracked several mutants for years now, and they were captured because of me. I felt guilty. But there was no choice. I was forced to do the job, so that scientists of Project X can experiment them, or even use them for other evil purposes. Dr. Essex had finally come to my cell, and said, "Ah, my favorite patient. You're next." He smiled at me.
I was held in chains and followed by two security guards, behind me. I wanted to get out of this place. I hit the guard backwards, and managed to run away. The other guards shouted, and one of them shot a dart at me. I felt unconscious. I couldn't even move. Dr. Essex said, "You must know that you can never escape from my facility. I'm in charge here. So don't think you can escape, and save your friends. Or escape alone, that is." He laughed.
He brought me into a laboratory. Caliban does not like this room. The guards strapped me to a bed, which I can't escape. Dr. Essex placed something inside my brain, and said, "I will perform a surgery on you later. But first, I need to control your body movements." I have never felt so helpless in my life. Whatever was going to happen to me, Caliban might be dead.
I woke up. At first, I didn't know where I was. Then I realized that I was still being held in the same laboratory. Then I looked at myself and saw a naked body on the other side. My own body got separated from me! And I'm speaking thoughtfully from my own brain! What could this mean? I did not know. Caliban is afraid. My body was encased inside an isolation tank, and I could see it all the way from here. I shouted to Dr. Essex angrily. He heard me, and said, "Don't worry, Caliban. You're safe and sound. But I'm afraid to tell you that your brain is separated from your body at this point. We'll be doing several tests to see if this experiment works. That way, you don't have to go out, and track the mutants all over the world by foot. It's much easier for you." The mad scientist looked at some notes on the pad, and continued, "Your brain will be hooked with the largest computer in the world. And..." He stopped, looking at my lifeless body, and then at my brain. He said, "Your name will not be Caliban anymore. You shall be called Cerebro."
Holy crap! What a surprise! You didn't see that comin', did ya? SNIKT!

Marvel Genesis: Wolverine- The Sinister Files, Part 6- Natural Selection
After receivin' the visions, I woke up from the drizzlin' pain that I neva had before. Even the others have gotten up, and it looked like they hadn't a clue of what the hell was goin' on. Dr. Hill said that she had also received the visions, even the rest of the X-Force.
I got closer to the old man, and found out that he was still sleepin', and this time, his aging had been reversed. Dr. Hill was right. The formula did work, but it gave him some powers. I sure didn't wanna think about it.
"Is everyone alright?" Dom said. "Jesus! What was that?"
"I dunno, Dom," I said. "But I think Dr. Hill knows the answers. Whaddaya think?"
Dr. Hill was quiet for a while. She only stared at Nick Fury, who was young again as before. His eyes were still closed, but only time will tell, when he was gonna wake up.
"I think it was the visions, Logan," Warpath said, answerin' for the female egghead. "Yes, I know this, because my people have said the chosen ones of the tribe, had visions of the future."
"You mean the ones we just saw now?" I said. "What about Nick Fury?" Warpath looked at the old man, and then said, "Well... He may have seen it. It seems he can transmit those visions onto us, so we could also see them. It's possible." Christ! All those visions that we had before. Now, we'll have to deal with them later, when Nick gets up.
I went back to my quarters, and Dom followed me. We had sex for a while. But then, I couldn't sleep. Because I was still thinkin' about the old man, and what he did to us. Maybe, he didn't mean it that way. But now that he was alright, his white eyes could be the problem. I think it could help us to prevent future disasters or somethin.' I don't know. I hope Nick Fury is gettin' better.
I went back to Sinister's journal, and decide to read his last entry. This is where Sinister had hired his new Marauders, and how they managed to kill the Morlocks.
April 14, 1971
At last, I have managed to steal the secrets of Project Rebirth. But something dreadful has happened. A well-known gamma physicist named Dr. Brian Banner had unleashed a dangerous being from another dimension, called the Negative Zone. William Stryker had hired him to find out if there were other worlds existed, and that Romulus wanted to know about it. But the experiment went awfully wrong, and all the soldiers, and the entire staff of Project X were completely wiped out by the creature itself. Project X was dismantled at that time. I escaped, and have tried to contact the Team X personnel at all costs. But they were nowhere to be found. Even William Stryker didn't answer my calls. I have planned to move into another Project X facility, located in Brazil. But it will take an amount of time to reach there. I'll have to find some transport.
April 15, 1971
I was still roaming the woods, finding my way out, and tried to find some shelter. it started raining. At this time, I couldn't continue working on my experiments. It was crucial that I had to survive at this stage, because whatever Dr. Banner had unleashed from another dimension, was bound to come after me. I probably may not able to destroy it.
As unlucky as the other scientists, I have witnessed a being that I hadn't seen before. Yes, it was monstrous, and that could lead to my demise. The monster was green, and it shouted like a wild animal. I didn't know what it was, but it seemed to be coming my way. I had to hide myself, and hoped that it doesn't find me.
Whatever this creature was, I had the feeling that it came from the dimension, that Dr. Banner had opened the portal a while earlier. He had theories, that you could find possible worlds to live in, in case if Earth had lost all the adaptability of its atmosphere, and that humans might die off. It was a silly theory, and I had to laugh at that thought.
The creature finally noticed me, and it roared. It jumped on me, and smashed the ground. Luckily, I got out of his space, because his large feet would have crushed me. I unleashed my force blasts at him, but there was no effect. He kept saying words like "HULK SMASH!" over and over again. And then he punched on the ground, with his large hand, which made it shook like an earthquake. I almost fell down through the crack. I just couldn't believe it. Such raw power!
I thought of getting this creature's DNA sample. But how could I do it, when the creature was so angry, and loud enough that he could destroy me. I didn't want to face that possible fact. I ran away from the green creature. He kept following me, and then stomped on the ground again. I fell down, and he finally got me. I tried to reach the creature's mind, and found out that Dr. Brian Banner was still alive!
It was not possible, but it did make some sense. Somehow this green creature, who came from the other dimension had been fused with Banner's body. I tried to get away from its grip. But the creature was too strong for me. It was crushing me. I couldn't breathe.
Then the Hulk creature threw me away like a rag doll. I thought he was going to kill me. When I got up, I saw the creature, trying to control himself. He was moving around, and not sure what he was doing. I have reached the creature's mind again, and realized that Banner was trying to get out of the creature's body. This was my chance.
I came closer to it, while the Hulk creature was crying out in pain. I decided to insert the mind spore inside it's brain. But the creature had noticed me, and roared angrily. He punched me on the ground, and when I got up, he raised me high, and tore me apart.
April 18, 1971
I was found by the survivors of Project X. Dr. Cornelius was there. He said that some green creature had killed everyone at Project X. But he wasn't sure about William Stryker and his Team X personnel. I told him, "Yes, I know." I was still alive, despite my body being torn in half. I thought I could have died at this point, after what the Hulk did to me. But I have survived, thanks to my Sinister Effect.
I was taken to the underground, where Dr. Cornelius put me on bed. He and the other scientists attached my body, and it took a couple of hours to do so. I had to rest for a while, and think of what I can do with this Hulk creature. But Dr. Cornelius had seemed to read my mind, and said, "I know what you're thinking, Dr. Essex. But now, it's not the time to look after this damn thing. We must make haste, and move on towards other important matters." He said that he had planned to go to Canada. But I told him, I won't be coming with him, and where I was going.
"Ah yes," Dr. Cornelius said. "I wish I could come with you. But no. I must stay here for a while, and go back to Project X. There might be other survivors, even Logan. Who knows?"
Yes, Logan. I haven't thought about him for a while. I think he might be still alive, even for the other mutants. I hope...
April 21, 1971
I was back into full shape. Now, I was given the transport by Department H, whose goal was to hire superhuman beings. I thought I could go there, but I had the idea that my experiments could be dangerous for them to notice, even this man called General James Hudson. I heard that he was a tough man of military intelligence, and I didn't want to face him, knowing that I would hate the man that much.
I came to Brazil, where a bunch of tourists were walking around, and seeing the beautiful scenery of South America. I had no intention to experiment on these people. But I had ideas where to get the mutants from. Here, I have met a Native American mutant, who had been hired to kill important figures in South American history. His name was John Greycrow also known as Scalphunter. He also had the healing ability, as much as Logan and Victor Creed. But he had a different power at his disposal. He can assemble weapons in any form that he wished. I have heard that he sold dangerous weapons on the black market. "There were lots of money in it," Scalphunter had said. He didn't want his mutant ability to go such waste. It was understandable at that point, which Scalphunter wanted to stop killing for a while, and lay low until it was necessary to kill again. Maybe, he got tired of it already. Who knows? But his healing factor gave him an advantage over his enemies. So Scalphunter had no fear of hunting his enemies down.
The reason for his code name, was that he had removed scalps from his fellow American soldiers during World War 2. For that, he was tracked down by the Americans themselves. But he had gradually escaped from them, and also had to kill them, with a number of his new toys.
Scalphunter shook hands with me, and we decided to hire other mutants to join our group. Yes, they would become my new Marauders in time.
May 3, 1971
In Vietnam, we hired Arclight and Scrambler to join our group. Earlier, they have been given the tasks of infiltrating an American army camp, and destroyed their base of operations. We heard that these mercenaries were dangerous enough to kill anyone on their path. Their powers were useful, and these two Asian mutants didn't take mercy on their victims. Arclight had worn a suit of armor that enhance her mutant abilities. She had the power to bring forth the shock waves by either clapping her hands or using several punches. It was loud enough to hear such a drastic thing. Whereas Scrambler can disrupt any system with a single touch. This Korean mutant was responsible for disrupting the American base, while Arclight had destroyed the American soldiers. I could use Scrambler to disrupt superhuman or mutant powers of various individuals.
May 5, 1971
We traveled to Germany, where Blockbuster and Harpoon were sent to kill Neo-Nazi soldiers in the 20th-century. Of course, the Germans had failed the Second World War, which was why they attempt to strike back against America for their failure. Now, the Americans have learned their existence, and that they had sent both mutants to do the job. Blockbuster was a German mutant who had great endurance, super strength, and durability. He didn't mind killing his own people, and then there was Harpoon, who turned out to be an Inuit. His power was to charge objects with bio-electric energy, and use them as projectiles. It was pure handiwork.
May 9, 1971
We came to Somalia, where an American businessman attempted to sell weapons on the highest bidder. Scalphunter said, he had known him before, and the businessman used him for the services. But Scalphunter didn't want to work with him. However, the Americans had found that the rich man made business dealings with the Somalian army. So they sent both bloodthirsty mutants such as Prism and Riptide to apprehend them, including the businessman himself. Prism had a crystalline body that can absorb light, and amplify energy attacks. But his weakness was physical attacks. It was the fact that anyone could hit him with a punch on the face, as long as that man was strong enough to do so. As for Riptide, he can transform his body into a whirlwind. From this state, he can shoot shuriken-like weapons onto his victims.
May 12, 1971
It was this time, that I had to search for both female mutants. Yes, Raven Darkholme also known as Mystique, and former member of Team X had ongoing missions that involves top-secret assassinations. After all, she was a shape-shifter, and nobody could recognize her. Meanwhile, Scalphunter hired a mutant strip dancer named Vertigo from a club, where she uses her powers to induce her customers to sleep, and have sex with them.
May 15, 1971
We have gathered around the table, and discussed our plan to eradicate the Morlocks, that I have found them, living under the Manhattan sewers. Yes, I was able to pinpoint their exact location by using Caliban's brain. After all, Caliban was a mutant who can detect other mutants, and I had to perform an operation on him, years before. I have sent the Marauders to go there, and finish them off.
May 20, 1971
The Marauders came back to me, and reported that all the Morlocks were dead. Nobody had survived the massacre. Yes, I have seen them through my eyes by inserting the mind spore within Blockbuster's brain, and been notified about the results. Scalphunter gave me the DNA samples of the dead Morlocks. I can use them for future use.
Yes, it was brutal enough to kill the Morlocks in such an old fashion. But I had to do it. The Marauders had been working for me, almost everyday to see that I can get what I've always wanted. This is my last entry. And I shall hide my journal, which no one can find it. Hopefully...
Christ! This guy needs to be dead. He sure was one helluva crappy egghead. If I can find him that is, I'll have to kill him for good. That way, no one can eva get hurt. I felt sorry for the Morlocks though. It was painful to hear it again, comin' from this crappy journal. But at least Marrow was still alive. She was found later by Department H after the Morlock Massacre. Now that I've finished reading the journal, it's time to throw it away in the trash bin, so that I didn't have to look at it again.
I came back to Nick's quarters, where the old man stood there, looking at himself. Yea, it was the glass window alright. The weird thing was that he didn't have the eye patch anymore, because of the Sinister Effect, and that his injured eye got healed. Nick looked back at me, and then sat down on the chair. He seemed so different now, that I can't get to know what really bugs me, because Nick became young again, and not only that, he had been given some psychic powers. It was weird to see him this way.
Nick said, "Did you see the same thing? Because the others, who were in the medical room, have also seen them."
Yea, I knew somethin' like this would happen. Eventually, I told him the same story. But Nick had said that he had not seen these visions for himself. It looked like he can only transmit these visions to a person nearby, while he was in some sorta trance. That's what Warpath told me, before I came back to meet Nick again. I guess that's how it goes.
"This is serious, Logan," Nick said. "I had Tony Masters recorded every detail about these visions, so we can study them later. We don't know for sure if these visions, that I have sent, were real. But we have to prepare for anything." He closed his eyes, probably relaxin' for a while and then said, "Now, I need some rest. You can leave."
"How do you feel by the way?" I asked him, wantin' to know if the old man was really feelin' alright.
"I'm okay, Logan. I have to thank Dr. Hill for saving my life. If it wasn't for her decision, I would have been dead by now. It was risky though."
Yea, I know how that feels. It seems that Nick had to deal with his newfound power now. Only time will tell, if he is gonna have another vision, or the same visions again, as long as nobody else sees them nearby or Nick puttin' himself in a trance-like state. I went outside his office, wonderin' if we eva gonna find out if these visions were true or not. Just like the old man said, we'll have to prepare for anythin', no matter how bad it seems.
