Charles Xavier II and his crew are in gloat mode. You know what gloat mode is right? That is the mode you go to when you know you've won.
I'm reminded of the line in the movie Young Guns: "There's many a slip between the cup and the lip". In this case the slip comes from a vampiric Storm.
And just like that 'gloat mode' becomes premature.
Once again with the references. In the fantasy epic Malazan Book of the Fallen when armies fight a key decider is the strength of the mages on both sides. In this battle it's the strength of the psychics.
Thankfully, Xavier junior isn't as strong as Daddy. And on that note, I think that if ever Xavier has a kid who is not a jerk or twisted in some mental way, it's probably going to be the end of the Marvel universe.
Magneto is a definite heavy-hitter on the side of the original X-Men.
While the fight is going on Jean slips out to go and find the Professor. And find him she does.
Back in the fight, Beast shows brilliant form against Old Man Deadpool.
The original X-Men push for the victory by - and this is an understatement - 'summoning reinforcements'.
In classic villain mode, Xavier II vanishes with is team and threatens to come back.
And now we have the original X-Men reunion.
Welcome hugs and greetigs give way to plans for the future.
Xavier II and company have another encounter with Magneto.
