116 The Scarlet Witch

AN: (Story will be back at July 17th)


Beast's eyes widened as he saw a blur, smash into Kurt and blast him away. Before he could properly react, a silver haired youth came skidding to a stop in front of him wearing a black and silver costume.

Iceman was immediately on alert, the air around him dropping a few degrees as he prepared for a fight, while Beast went over to check over Kurt.

They didn't even have a chance to react and judging by the sudden attack their opponent was either a speedster or a teleporter.

He grimaced as he checked over NightCrawler's injuries. Kurt's body was filled with contusions and broken bones.

It almost seemed as if a high-speed vehicle had crashed into Kurt, his injuries consistent with a high-speed collision.

"Why the hell did you do that?! You could have killed him. You're supposed to be a mutant like us-" Was all he got out before Bobby 's eyes turned a pure white, as he blasted Ice at Pietro.

" No! Bobby stop!" Beast yelled out.

Quicksilver dissappeared from view, the attack hitting the spot where Pietro used to be.

In the blink of an eye, Pietro zipped up to Iceman and grabbed him around the throat, lifting him easily in the air as if he weighed nothing. Bobby glared into the speedster's eyes.

" Do you know how easy it would be for me, to break your neck?" Pietro threatened.

Bobby's powers went into overdrive, and even his body started turning into ice. " Go ahead, but you might lose a few fingers though."

Pietro quickly dropped him and started vibrating his hand, which was seconds away from being frost bitten. "Son of a bitch!"

Suddenly a woman clad in scarlet appeared in a shimmer, materializing very differently from Kurt's teleportation.

All eyes were on her, since she had a face that was quite similar to the silver haired speedster

" Pietro, who are those people?" She asked.

< They are your brothers and sisters my dear. > They all heard in their minds.

Sensing two other figures approaching her from behind, Wanda turned around to see who they were.

Storm was pushing the Professor's wheelchair up towards them, as she surveyed the scene around her, with worry on her face.

Her eyes fell on Kurt's injured form then on Beast's and Iceman's outraged looks.

Kurt had saved her life before, and the sight of him injured once again brought out memories she'd rather forget. Her mind went back to a time long forgotten, and her surroundings didn't help her in burying it. She's been anxious as soon as she found out they were going to Cairo.

It's this place where she lost everything, she ever held dear. When she was seven months old, she and her parents had moved to Cairo, Egypt.

At the age of five, during a conflict, a plane crashed into their home. They were ambassadors and many suspected the attack wasn't an accident.

Her parents were killed that day, but she survived, buried under rubble near her mother's body. She could still remember how her parents used their bodies to shield her in attempt to save her life.

This traumatizing effect left her with the severe claustrophobia that still afflicted her to this today.

It was only after hours, she had managed to escape the rubble of her shattered home with nothing but the tattered clothes on her back.

Homeless and orphaned, she was found by a gang of street urchins who took her to their master, who taught her the arts of thievery, where she soon became his prized pupil, excelling in picking both pockets and locks.

During her time in Cairo, she one day happened to pick the pocket of an American tourist.

The man proved no easy mark, however, as he was Charles Xavier, a powerful mutant telepath who used his abilities to stop the theft.

It was the day the Professor had found her, and took her with him to America after discovering she was a mutant.

She ended up finishing her education and became an instructor at the mansion.Where she was able to help young and lost mutants like she once was.

"Kurt…" Storm said. Her eyes fell on him, face going white. She rushed to his side and propped him up on her legs as best she could. She leaned down next to him to gently push the hair from his face.

The professor looked towards them and said. "Take him to the jet."

As Storm carried Kurt, and flew towards the jet. Wanda suddenly spoke out. "It's you."

Pietro looked towards his sister, " Do you know this guy?"

"Don't you recognize him? It's him." Wanda said.

Pietro's eyes widened in surprise, "That's right! Wait. You're a mutant too?"

At Charles' questioning look, " We were coming to America to see you, after our powers awakened. We saw you talking on TV about mutant rights. We didn't know where else to go, until... " Wanda explained.

" So are you guys here to recruit us?" Pietro interrupted eyeing their group. "Because, if you are. Sorry to tell you this, but you're a bit too late. Dad already did ."

Beast raised an eyebrow at that," Dad? "

Wanda rolled her eyes," Magneto."

At the sound of his name, the trio froze.

"Erik?" The professor whispered.

" Wait isn't that guy in prison?" Bobby blurted out, never having met the guy.

He had heard about him though, and how much trouble he caused the X-men back in the day, that is up until he lost his powers and got thrown in prison.

" Clearly, it seems much has happened, and Erik is no longer in prison. "Charles sighed.

He turned to look at them," So, you're Erik's children... "

Wanda scoffed," I wouldn't call him that, not unless the world ended. "

" I'm afraid that might become a reality sooner rather than later. "

Wanda was alerted to the sound of sizzling behind her as a blue light illuminated the surrounding. She turned and saw a man and a woman coming out of a portal dressed in peculiar garments.

Jean was wearing her burgundy trench coat with a black under suit made out of a vibranium/kevlar mesh. It was completely bulletproof and could stop high caliber bullets and absorb high energy blasts.

Several runes were also etched inside the burgundy coat making it fireproof, along with a few runes to boost agility, reaction speed and mental acuity.

Cypher was wearing his Endo-Sym Armor made out of Vibranium nanites bonded with his Symbiote. All powered by a Grav-Reactor core fitted inside a Vibranium shell.

Cypher cut an imposing figure, standing at a height of 7 feet, the Symbiote giving him the ability to increase his mass and height.

Freely able to shapeshift his armour to any configuration he desired, the suit included clawed fingers, arm spikes, and lacked visible eye lenses. The suit also had circuit markings all over it, which gave it an otherworldly feel.

The Symbiote responded to his thoughts and his mask came down.

He stared intensely upon her. "Wanda Maximoff?" he asked in a stern voice.

"Who are you?" she shot back while readying energy in her right hand.

He looked familiar to her but she couldn't think of where. If he was here for a fight, she would gladly oblige.

Cypher's magical senses were blaring at him, he could sense high levels of concentrated magical energy coming off of her. But, It was raw, untrained.

" I'm the one who put Magneto in prison and took away his powers. How did he manage to get them back by the way? I'm curious, since I was the one who deactivated his X-Gene." He said.

Peitro seemed agitated by Cypher's comments, and before anyone could react he ran up to Cypher.

The world around Pietro slowed almost to a halt, though he could see Cypher moving at a slow speed turning his head towards him, which was much faster than everyone else's non movement.

But how was he perceiving him?

He was going faster than sound, roughly at a speed approaching the speed of light.

Ever since he became a horsemen, his previous limits were gone. His only limiter his own stamina.

He tried to speed up even more, running towards Cypher to knock him out. As his speed increased, Cypher's movement seemed to slow down to a crawl, while Pietro was only a few feet from him.

(Cypher's POV)

I could precieve the moment, Quicksilver began to move...

I only had a scant few moments to react, his speed wasn't anything I could hope to reach.

Only the fact that my mind was akin to a Supercomputer and my own spidey sense, which allowed me to temporarily precieve such speeds and react to the threat approaching me.

Although I couldn't move at such speeds, there was still something I could do.

Thankfully all it took to control my Symbiote was a thought. And, as I saw his fist approaching. My face mask rematerilazed giving me enough time to see his eyes widen in shock.


"Pietro!" Wanda screamed, as he fell to the ground, holding his arm and howling in pain.


Wanda ran up to her brother trying to calm him down. He was screaming and cursing at me, while he held onto his arm that almost looked purvelised.

High-speed movement and Vibranium didn't mix well. Especially when the force of the impact was absorbed and reflected back onto his his arm. Breaking every single bone up to his elbow.

Normally, the energy would be absorbed and released on command, but somehow the bonding process between the Symbiote and the Vibranium nanites, caused the suit to react instinctively and release all the absorbed energy.

Wanda looked up at me as red strands of energy swirled around her. Her eyes started to glow red. " You hurt my brother!."

I sighed, " Technically he hurt himself, or did you expect me to just stand there as he pummeled me?"

She didn't seem to like my answer, judging by the red energy swirls surrounding her.

I was a bit wary, since strong emotions and magic could be an incredibly dangerous combination. Especially her brand of chaos magic. But, that didn't mean I was afraid.

" Bring it on Scarlet Witch." I challenged.
