Really, drop a pair of police cars and they decide they don't trust you with anything metal. Well, perhaps Sabertooth's killing all the security guards at the Statue of Liberty had influenced their thinking, but that hadn't actually been him. Perhaps the train car he'd peeled open. He'd wanted to get inside the car to take that girl with him. The door had been stuck. What else was he supposed to do?
Charles had been trying to figure out who on earth would be sending holiday cards to Magneto. He had decided to let Charles wonder about it.
He was an excellent builder, but lacked initiative and self confidence, and had a socially awkward tendency to eat small birds.
She had told Giles that she was a mutant, and he had found the perfect way to assure her that all would be well: he insulted the computer.
"I think I'm going to have to learn the hard way though, I doubt they'd let Erik out of prison so he could teach me the fine points of controlling my mutant power."
Family Tree Series, Lucinda
Logan returned to the bed and continued reading where they had found him. Sunnydale, California.
"My love for the cold and they got me in California? How the fuck did that happen?"
"What the hell are you?" growled Logan, obviously perturbed. Marie and the X-geeks had made him go soft.
"You worst nightmare, amigo." Said the first.
"What, you're the dancing purple dinosaur?" quipped Logan. He had once been roped into looking after the little toddler mutants with Marie one evening, and still had vivid memories of all the weird and disturbing TV shows the kids watched. Remembering that was almost as bad as some of his nightmares.
"I can see this is going to be a one sided conversation, so I'll finish now. But how do you feel about a short holiday?"
Jean perked up at the mention of a holiday, and nodded, but then looked up suspiciously. "This wouldn't happen to be a 'follow Logan and meet the family in the process' holiday, would it, Scott?"
Not that bricks and steel hold someone with an adamantium skeleton. Ten minutes of slashing, and he'd be out faster than Jesse James.
But it would be a waste of time, and it would mean Cyke would be right. He couldn't go anywhere without getting arrested.
The door shut, and Jack Harris went back to his alcohol dream. Strange, he thought, I could have sworn I had a wife a few minutes ago… and who was that big hairy guy?
Dragging the two technicians to the darkest corner he could find, Xander sat them back-to-back, and began to wrap tape around their chests, trapping their upper arms as he did so.
Be thorough. Said his mind.
Don't worry, I will be. He thought back.
The creature stood, and nodded to itself. Then it spoke, in a voice coarse from disuse. "Well done. You managed to get the guards away from here. Till next time." He growled angrily, sneered and took off down the corridor, hunched slightly, with a loping trot that was a common energy saving move throughout the whole animal kingdom.
"Well," said Xander to himself. "That was riveting."
Time Can Heal All Wounds, Paradigm Shifter
Her father was the only person that she'd ever met that would include mention of gutting someone in an attempt at reassurance.

“Let’s celebrate.” Xander said. “Let’s take a ride.”
“You don’t mean…? You’ve been hanging around Logan too much.” Marie replied but she agreed.
“I won’t. I’ll be taking my fiancé. By the way, I like you’re bike, Scott. Handles nicely round the turns at high speed, doesn’t it, honey?” Xander said with a smirk.
“Sure does.” Marie replied before they both swept out of the room, leaving stunned X-men behind.
“Not even I saw that coming.” Professor Xavier said.
“Knew I liked the kid.” Logan chuckled earning what he guessed was a glare from Scott, it was difficult to tell through the rose-quarts glasses.
Rogue's Hunter, Knifehand
“I won’t let you, Xander – it’s dangerous out there!”
“As if you’ve done anything to make it any less so – you refuse to take out the main danger, Angelus, and then screw up anyone’s chances of doing so when they have the chance. That alone makes you an accessory to murder, numerous murders, so if you don get de fuck outta my way, petit, I’m gonna make sure dat dis be de last mistake you EVER make, ne’cest pas?”
“Bah!” He threw the empty gun to the side and was surprised that, when it struck the wall, it exploded itself, sending concrete and stucco showering around him, “BOY! I thought this was supposed to be a fair fight.”
Harris stood, holding a large blue canister in his hand, a canister that was also glowing a vibrant pink color, “I said I’d even de odds, vampire – don’ remember sayin’ a t’ing ‘bout a fair fight, le mort.”

He studied her carefully for a moment before replying, “ I think you’d look great in some spandex get up. In fact, you’d be a real knock out; and considering your power, that could be your code name. Knock Out, the untouchable”
For the first time since the discovery of her powers, Marie actually laughed about them; it was a soft, amused sound that seemed to fill the room. “ Right, Ah don’t think so. You on the other hand could work wonders as Ordinary Guy, saving the world by night, and getting himself into all sorts of trouble by day. You could be like Batman without the money…or the car…..or the gadgets…”
