James Kingston




Location: Banner Residence
Skills: N/A





James gave Mistique a deadpan stare as she murmured about improvising. The whole damn operation had been improvising. He sntached the phone out of the air, irritated. This would have gone better with less people initially and ways to communicate but why plan. He held the phone up to his ear, putting on a much more pleasant voice than he felt capable of.

“Dr. Banner. It’s a pleasure to finally speak to you.” James spoke conversationally. “We need your help and Lance was polite enough to offer us a way to reach you. See, we have a problem only you can help us with and we can’t leave until its solved. I’m sure Lance, being your research assistant, could help us figure some parts of the puzzle out but I doubt he’d last as long when he eventually failed. Why don’t you come home and we can discuss this over a cup of coffee? I’d love to resolve this civilly if you allow it. Lance and his little friend will probably appreciate it too.”

Niah Bautista





Location: Red Guard Mobile Unit - Sydney, Australia
Skills: N/A


Niah kept the sigh of relief inside as she was freed from the earth that Novikova had encased her feet in. What was Novikova thinking? She put her hand on her shoulder. "That was quite a ploy, but Abercrombie has them under her control now. Would have been good to know they were going to be here when they were." She let her hand drop back to her side and shook her head slightly. "This definitely could have gone way smoother if she had been allowed to come in the first place. Even as an Inhuman her power is invaluable." She hated how saying that made her feel. Abercrombie was invaluable, and Niah knew that if the world were a bit kinder to Inhumans or if Abercrombie were a mutant she wouldn't have any of the issues that currently held her back.

"Let's get them on the ship though. That way Dr. Banner has to come to us." She said this quiet enough that the conversation Kingston and Banner were having wouldn't be disturbed. She grabbed Lance and started to lead him out of the house and to the ship. "Get the girl." She said to Maria, her shoulders tense. At least the kid wasn't even trying to fight her.

Richard Laine & Ayita Dyrkin


Location: LeBeau Casino - New Orleans, Lousiana





Richard smirked after Bobbi as the woman walked away. She was a treat and with a body to kill in more ways than one. Ignoring the disgusted look his sister shot him, he couldn't ignore her thoughts. "You do remember we agreed those who work with us are off limits?" Apparently he was smart enough to think of future ramifications. Well wasn't that a horrid revelation? He shrugged absently in response to his little sister. Pushing himself free of his seat, the Armani suited owner of Lux sighed and ran a hand a hand through his hair as he followed that wickedly graceful body into the training room.

Ayita had padded into the room after her brother with a disapproving frown. Her amber eyes begging Gambit to work it the other way around. Oh, she liked Bobbi well enough but Richard knew better than to be angling for her seriously and she damn well could pick up from his insistence that was exactly what he was doing. "Why are we sparring? Rather, why is he sparring? He tosses people out of the club for causing a ruckus regularly." The younger Dyrkin pointed out with a slight whine to her voice and a great deal of annoyance on her face. She had a book to read after all.

That got Richard's attention and made his steps hesitate. Ayita didn't whine, oh complaining was one thing. But whining? Glancing at the younger of the siblings, he earned himself a glare of reproach. "A little spat is a spat, my dear sister. A spar however? That is a work out and Bobbi is far more difficult than those half wit drunks." He flashed the said woman a charming smile before removing his suit jacket with a certain care, his vest following. Rolling up the sleeves of his dress shirt the night club owner looked amused at Bobbi and beckoned a 'come at me' motion. "Worried I'll get hurt? Or you will lose?"

"I'm fighting Remy." Ayita pointed out in annoyance, mimicking her brother as she tossed her hair over her shoulder. "You'll heal. I'll lose." The facts were already there. She didn't have to like them however. Especially not with Richard being a bit strange. "Personally I hope she wipes the floor with your smug smile. God know your ego could be taken down a peg or three. Thousand." Pushing Richard from her mind she sighed as she began to circle about Remy with her own staff. Noting them himself, Richard plucked two knives.

Carolina Reed


]Location: The Palace - New York City, New York
Skills: N/A





Carolina looked over towards her wife laughed slightly and shook her head a little bit. "I don't think that would be a really smart idea though." She said as she leaned in and gave October a loving kiss as she continued to dance a little bit more and nodded. "We just need a little bit of a flare to the party is all I can always be the goddess of mischief." She said as she watched Annie and Wanda dancing a little bit as she started to think a little bit on how to start messing with the guests.

Carolina eyed Pietro and Flynn as well for a moment then over towards Wanda wondering if she'd like to mess with her siblings first. "We could mess around with Prince Pietro or Prince Flynn, it would be pretty entertaining. I always used to mess with my sister's things back when we were younger. It was always so much fun to annoy her back then." Carolina said, she hadn't really spoken to Cass at all today either and started to wonder how she was doing now as well she did miss her sister and knew that she was always busy with the Red Guard as well.




Cassandra Reed


Location: Red Guard Mobile Unit - Sydney, Australia
Skills: N/A





Cassandra stood there as she watched Tinley work her magic as she watched Lance dropping his phone onto the ground, and Mystique going over to picking up the phone and tossing it over towards James. Of course she gave it to the one who made some more trigger happy comments and leaving the team behind to inform them. "Do not make him Hulk out." Cassandra said towards James as she walked more into the room as she watched Niah going over and escorting Lance back over towards the Quinjet. She still did not like the idea of having to work with this team. She needed to get Novikova, Bautista, Smith and Abercrombie away from them as soon as possible. But she knew that at least Niah and Maria weren't themselves and would need some convincing.

Cassandra watched Novikova and Sapphire getting into it a little bit and made her eyes roll and shake a little bit, she needed to talk to Novi as soon as possible. "Cut it out you two, we have the kids now we just have to talk to Banner." Cass said as she looked over at the other members of the team as Maria went to escort Runa away now as well. She then looked over towards Novikova once more again. "I need to talk to you in private when you can."




Maria Smith


Location: Sydney, Australia - The Banner Residence
Skills: N/A





Maria was still a little bit confused as she looked towards Novikova she still wasn't sure whether to think that her plan would have worked or not. But she trusted her girlfriend enough to know what she was doing, as soon as she was freed she clenched her fist a little bit and glared at Sapphire. She was about to say something when Novikova spoke up first which made her take a step back a little bit as Agent Reed came up and spoke up. She then looked at Niah when she asked her to help move the girl to the quinjet and sighed a little bit and nodded. "I'll see you in a little bit." Maria said towards Novi and gave her a quick kiss.

She then walked over towards Runa and grabbed her arm rather tightly looking at her Tinley's mind control was working somewhat, but she wasn't sure if the girl would fight back or not. "Try and not do anything stupid, you and your boyfriend wont be hurt, i'm taking you to him." Maria said as she started to make her way over towards the Quinjet.

Michelle Diggby

Skills: N/A





Michelle flicked the safety back on and holding it by the stock, let it swing down to her side pointed at the floor. Tinley had successfully defused the situation and Novikova's impromptu plan wasn't needed. It was a relief that she didn't need to discharge the shotgun and nobody got hurt.

Michelle knew that they weren't out of the woods yet, the boy had called his father, an understandable move, and he would no doubt be on route to our location. In Michelle's mind there were three scenarios, Kingston's calm and authorative tone would communicate to Banner that he should show up in the mindset to negotiate or the Hulk was already on route, in which case, they might already be in huge trouble. The Hulk's impressive land speed massively reduced the window they had to get prepared in and the Hulk's surprising air mobility meant even the jet was at risk being dismantled midflight. Any inkling that Hulk was on his way meant the captives needed to be out until we could reestablish communication with Banner.

The last scenario was what kept Michelle anxious, what could Banner achieve on his drive home? Michelle thought to keep these concerns to herself however, no need unnecessarily hurt morale.

What next? We just had to wait for now, securing the captives was being taken care of, Kingston had the open line, Michelle was reluctant to go back outside but somebody had to secure the perimeter and she was the one in the "I work in security" cap. She sighed and quit messing with her eyelid, the job was the job.

"I'll go watch the road an' radio in when Banner shows."

And with that she followed Maria and the magical girl back into the heat.

Maximillian Gray

Location: The Palace: New York City, New York.
Skills:





As time ticked, and his nerves began to get the better of him, Max had decided he needed to take action. His eyes slowly moved across the room from left to right, right hand gently pressed beneath his lower lip in a thoughtful pose. Too many people around. Of all places why did it have to happen at the kings party? Magneto's party. Max thought to himself while he attempted to examine the situation his was in, contemplating a series of ways to go about this predicament he was presented with. I could spotlight her and then me? No, too flashy and would draw everyones attention. Maybe I could make tiny wooden penguins around her? Ugh stupid, what would that even mean? Ok, what if I just attempt to telepo- no, that may be seen as an attempt or threat.

Max snapped his fingers as an idea finally clicked that he may be able to work with. Shrugging his shoulders back to propel him off the wall he was leaning on, he now stood straight, eyes on the target. He cupped one hand over his mouth as if he was whispering a secret to someone, yet no sound came out. After about a minute he was finally able to finish it off, wishing that some of his powers wouldnt take so long, but still happy they worked better in this new world. A whisper was now present in Wanda's ear, one only she could hear.
It would appear I'm not the only one who knows this world is false Wanda Maximoff. I would very much appreciate a chat.
As soon as he felt she had heard his message, Max began to create a long scarlet chiffon ribbon. It started at Wanda's position and began to stretch and flow towards Max, leading her to him if she cared to follow it.

Antoinette McCarthy


Location: The Palace: New York City, New York.
Skills:




Antoinette was too busy in her world dancing with Princess Wanda to hear October’s alarming comment about fire starting. That of course, would not be a very brilliant idea. She smiled at Wanda’s giggle. It was almost like a fairy’s laugh. Or what Antoinette presumed a fairy’s laugh would sound like. She twirled the Princess around again before a strange red ribbon appeared. What on earth? It seemed to form right next to Wanda and lead a path through the crowd.
”It seems, someone has already beat us to the punch Carolina. Let us follow it!” Antoinette latched onto the ribbon and skipped along beside it and danced under it as she moved across the room to find where it ended.
She stumbled across Max and cocked her head to stare at him. It seemed he had conjured the thing out of thin air. Some sort of material manipulator. Antoinette wasn’t fully certain.
”What an interesting way to draw someone’s attention,” Antoinette noted as she stared doe-eyed at the man she had never met before.

Her attention on Gambit and Rogue were brief as they discussed Mary. This information and news were uninteresting to her. There was always something going on with the twins and unless any of it was particularly juicy Bobbi could not care less. Instead, she watched the small chat between Ayita and Richard. This turned out to be equally as boring. She was ready to get down to business. Her body was aching for a battle.

She nodded, swinging the hammer up onto her shoulder as she turned her gaze upon the reptilian shifter. "O'course I can take 'im. Question is, can Ri-shard take me?" she said playfully. She placed her free hand on her cocked hip as she watched him carefully remove his suit jacket. It certainly took all types to make up a successful thieves guild, didn't it?

Allison Andrewss

Skills: N/A


Allison stared at Guin as she explained the situation, wondering if it was a smart move to tell her grandpa apparently. If Guin trusted him, then maybe she could too? But she was in new territory and these were new people in a new situation. "Oh ok, I guess we're just spilling all the beans then. Well, first off, hello, Allison, nice to meet you." She introduced herself.

"So I guess I'll say what I already told Guin. This timeline or reality or whatever we are deciding to call it is not the reality I know. Same people, same abilities, but a whole different way of doing things. For example, mutants haven't taken over the world where I am from. They exist with humans and, while tensions are high, there is some amount of peace there. And we have a team that goes and battles and saves the world now and again. Guin is there, Pietro too, and myself along with a few others I know I have seen here. So either I am truly going mental or we are all here in a new reality and some of us remember the real one while others do not and now I have a headache."



Tinley Abercrombie


Location: Red Guard Mobile Unit - Sydney, Australia
Skills: N/A


Tinely had eyed the scene well enough to know there was more going on here. Novikova also was not the best liar. Or she had experience with her lying before. Either way, something was up and if Novikova knew, like her, that this was not where they should be, then perhaps there was a reason. She heard Runa's thoughts and shared her own. "First off, not a sorceress. Second, I know Novikova and you were talking before about something and she seems to trust you. I will hold on to you for now, but the moment I release you and your boy you need to understand I am on your side. I do not know what is going on in this world, but I am willing to help. I have no loyalty to these people if this is how they treat others not like them."

She glanced at the others, catching Novi's eye with a slight wink, hoping the girl understood her meaning that she had an extra ally should things go south. She had no qualms about fighting back, especially against Mystique. Lord knows the woman deserved to be punched in the face, even if this was an alternate timeline or some such nonsense.

Tinley followed the others closely, still holding on to both of them. If something needed to happen, it needed to be soon.



Anastasia Reinhardt

It seemed she would be dancing a battle with Rogue. She knew her powerset well enough to know to keep her at a distance. "Well all right then. Sounds like a treat. I won't hold back now though. I have something to prove." She walked through the training room to a point where they had some space in-between the others. She bowed gracefully.

"Now how to go about this? Powers are not off limits you said, but did you want to try hand-to-hand first or no holds barred. I don't want to hurt you, you know. Gambit would surely kill me if I ruin that pretty face."

"I do not know what it is that you are talking about. Other reality? False worlds? Sounds like you belong in the loony bin," came Wanda's response to Max, but no one else seemed to have heard her speaking that to him.

She glanced over at Annie when she went to follow the red ribbon of sorts, and she couldn't help but chuckle, who in their right mind would make that sort of thing if they only wanted to converse with one person? It made no sense to her, but that didn't matter all too much, as she decided to go along with what Annie was doing and followed along the ribbon. "It certainly is an interesting way to get someone's attention, though you can't help but wonder if they were only trying to get one person's attention."

There were two figures at the party who blended in with the crowd rather easily, but unlike those around them, they were uninvited guests who had snuck inside of the palace. The Human Resistance had their resources, so it wasn't too difficult for them to slip on through. Now, that they were there, who was going to be their target? "So, we can't target the king, that would be suicide straight off the bat, and both of the princes could easily kill us in seconds too..." Alexander Jakobsen said, his voice barely above a whisper as he spoke to the woman who was with him.

Jade Cornish shook her head slightly at him. She had her arm hooked around his as she surveyed the scene at the party, knowing what had to be done. They had already thoroughly discussed this. Unfortunately, the ideal target was nowhere to be seen. "She isn't here," she whispered quietly, as she picked up a glass of champagne from one of the waiters and smiled at him, before taking a sip.

"Well then sounds like we'll have to improvise a bit then..." he responded, his eyes scanning around the room, trying to pick out a new target. His gaze instantly went to two people, Princess Wanda and Queen Miranda. "So best targets look to be Princess Wanda or the Queen... At least at the first glance... Wanda is surrounded by a group of people it would seem at the moment..."

Jade turned, giving him a kiss on the cheek and lingering for a moment. "Don't use names. Telepaths could be anywhere," she whispered to him. It was a good thing that he was cute. However, she checked the box marked single and she intended for things to stay that way. She didn't need a man to hold her back. She then took his hand. "Let's get out of the crowd, dear?" she asked, tugging him over towards the edges of the party.

"True, very true. Let's get out of the crowd," he said, giving her a smile as he followed her to the edge of the party. He was still scanning the room as he walked with her towards the edge of the crowd, and he saw someone else who wasn't too far away from them. Miranda was still by the wall, where Max had essentially left her to go wander off and do who knows what in her mind. She was just leaning against the wall, watching the party.

She spotted the Queen and gave Alex a bit of a nod. They had discussed how exactly to do this before, so she imagined that he would be fine with the routine. She would distract the target and he would execute the plan from behind, following the pair of them fleeing. "I'd like to go greet our Queen - excuse me," Jade said, before approaching Queen Miranda and giving her a curtsey, only to intentionally trip and fall forward onto the woman.

"Oh, don't worry, it's fine, are you alright?" Miranda asked her, catching her slightly. Alex moved slightly around her, looking at Jade with a slight smile as he pulled a knife that was specifically designed for this sort of thing, as it had a plastic handle and a glass shard for the blade. He kept it hidden in his sleeve as he moved to the other side, and as Miranda had turned to see if Jade was alright, he stabbed the blade into Miranda's back, twisting it slightly to cause more damage, before yanking it back out again, and Miranda fell to the ground.

"I would recommend we leave now," he said simply, grabbing Jade's arm and pulling her away from where Miranda was now.

However, any hope for a clean getaway that they may have had was quickly thwarted, as someone noticed what had happened and yelled out, "The Human Resistance is here!"

This caught Magneto's attention as he saw Miranda on the ground bleeding out and barely breathing. "After them!" he yelled out, his eyes flashing with anger as several people took off after Jade and Alex now. A few others from the crowd had gone over to where Miranda was and were attempting to stop the bleeding, but the knife had cut deep into her body, and it wasn't stopping any time soon.

The instant his father had yelled about going after the Resistance members, Pietro had taken off after them in hopes of catching them, though the odds of the pair out racing him were slim. Flynn had gone over to his mother in order to try and stop the bleeding until more help could potentially arrive. Out of everyone in the room, not a single person could just transfer regenerative healing or something to another person, and it was not going to make things any better.


Howard listened to what the two were saying, nodding his head slightly at their words. "Nice to meet you, Howard Stark. As for what you are describing, it does seem to be a bit far fetched, however, there could be some truth in your words. Either you are going insane in some form, or what you are describing is the truth. And based on how you appear, I am more inclined to believe the latter. Let's see what we can find out about this situation," he said as he stood up from where he was and headed down to the lab area. "Your parents went to a restaurant not too long ago, it'll be a little while until they return Guin."

Guin however would receive a telepathic message in the meantime from Pietro. Guina, someone just tried to kill my mother...





Rogue chuckled slightly, looking at Anastasia, "Ya sure do talk a lot don't ya? Anything goes is perfectly fine with me, unless ya want to do hand to hand, cause warning, I can't stop my super strength very easily when I throw a punch, so ya could just end up being thrown across the room by accident or somethin'."

“Less talking, fille.” Gambit said instantly, before he pulled a pack of cards out of his pocket. He then proceeded to throw three cards at Ayita right off the bat, and two of them hit her with enough force to send her stumbling backwards, while the last one missed her.

"What he said about it, let's get this started," she said to Anastasia, before she started hovering in the air, and charged right at her.


Chrysi shot a glare at Casper, her eyes shifting to red as she smirked at him. Something moved in her jacket sleeve, and suddenly she had a knife in her hand, "Killing people with knives is a bit on the messy side, but... It also is a lot more fun," she said simply, twirling the blade a bit. Hearing her words, Jack whirled around, and was about to charge at her when someone else came outside and shoved past him.

"I've got this," Mary said softly to him as she moved, and right before Chrysi was able to even try and stab Casper, she had gone over and blocked her arm when she had raised the blade. "You really should learn not to do anything to anger her Casper..."

"Hey there Goldilocks. What? Did you get kicked out of the room too? Thought you were the good one who always did what you were told to?" Chrysi said, and Casper was close enough to see Chrysi's eyes flash with anger, that was directed not towards him any more, but towards Mary instead. She flipped her arm around and slashed Mary's arm, causing her to stumble backwards, and it was bleeding fairly badly. "You and I also know which one of us would win in a fight, honestly I can't help but wonder why you are even around, you are way too nice to even be around and you know it!"

Jack glanced over at his brother, before he raced over to Chrysi as well, who looked like she was going to stab Mary again. He had no clue what his brother had been going on about, but he did know that Chrysi was a certified serial killer, and Casper had just been defending him. Managing to avoid Chrysi slashing at him, and being really glad that he was wearing long sleeves, and wrapped his arms around her, knocking the knife out of her hand and restraining her.

"Let go of me if you want to live," she grumbled, glaring at him.

"Yeah, not happening."

Mary took the moment to knock the blade further away from Chrysi and she stood up off of the ground, her arm was still bleeding pretty badly and she was using her other hand in a futile attempt to stop the bleeding.





"You need to watch your mouth Novikova," she snapped in response, glaring at her. She didn't care much for her, but thought nothing of it really now, they had more important things to deal with.

"Put my goddamn son on the phone, NOW." Banner snapped instantly at James, virtually ignoring what he had said. Though it was obvious that Banner was definitely not in the mood to talk about anything at all.

Tinley would be able to notice one thing, and that was that Lance was starting to try and fight back against her control. He wasn't able to break free from it, but it was becoming a bit more difficult to keep the control going. When Niah led him to the quinjet, he didn't say anything, just going along with her onboard of the ship. Since Shelly was looking around, somewhat, she wouldn't be able to see anyone coming, though that could be a good or bad thing.

However, there was one person who had broken free from Tinley's control, and that was Runa. Tinley would be able to feel Runa fighting her and eventually break free from her mind control.

"You can talk to him over on the jet, since we need to see about getting out of here," Mystique said simply towards James, before she left the house and headed onto the quinjet.

"You know, it would be interesting to have to fight the Hulk..." Sapphire mused, keeping a bubble of cold air around her as she walked outside as well.

"That might sound like a fun thing, but trust me Clarke, it definitely isn't." Wolverine grumbled as he exited the house and went into the jet.

Guin Stark


Location: Stark Tower - New York City, New York (Outfit)
Skills: Telepathy (Mental Link)
Guin glanced back at Allison, realizing that Allison probably didn't trust her grandfather. "Gramps can keep a secret," Guin reassured Allison. She didn't think too much more about Allison not having a lot of familiarity with Howard Stark - she didn't usually bring people home to meet her grandparents and since her family was practically all human, they weren't invited to the mutant only parties that King Erik liked to throw. Her father and grandfather mostly were in the spotlight for their work in the robot fights, since they were champions in the field. Oh, and of course the fact that they manufactured weapons for the Crown - that brought in a fair bit of publicity too.

As Allison talked, she had to wonder - if this was just a new timeline, then where had the split been? Her mind snapped to the war that had brought King Erik to power - the Human Mutant War. Had the humans won in the reality that Allison was used to? She had to wonder what a world with humanity on top would have looked like. Would the vocal human minority be a better and more accepting majority in that world? Would there be peace?

"Ah, cool. What about Grandma?" Guin asked, following Howard down to the labs and motioning for Allison to come along with her. She figured there was a good chance that her grandmother was watching television in her room or had already gone to bed. She wasn't as much of a night owl as the rest of them were. However, once they got into the lab Guin stopped in place and put her hand to her head. She didn't need to do that in order to focus her powers, but it was more or less her signal for I've got a telepathic call coming in.

"...Someone just tried to assassinate the Queen," Guin informed Howard and Allison. Her eyes were watering slightly, as she was decently close with Pietro's mother. ... Is she going to be okay? she asked Pietro softly through the mental link. She didn't want to know who did it - well yes she did want to know but she more of was hoping to find out that Miranda would make a full recovery. What happened? Guin asked, wiping her eyes on her arm.

She wasn't even thinking about getting the machines ready to perform the tests on Allison and all at the moment.

Casper Theriot


Location: Outside - New Orleans, Louisiana
Skills: Mediumship
"Seriously? What are you, a Stephen King character? Or a cliché from a Simpsons Halloween special?!" Casper couldn't help but ask, a bit flabbergasted with the way Chrysi was acting. Everything she said and did just struck him as someone's impression of a serial killer on television. He had met some horrible and twisted people in his life. Some of them at rehab, some of them at jail whenever he was temporarily thrown into a cell when they found him high. Chrysi just seemed unbelievable to him, like someone straight out of a comic book.

Ben, of course, was a little more concerned with the fact that she had a knife. "Cassie, you and Jack should get out of here," Ben recommended, as Mary ran on over. Casper then stared at Mary, not too surprised that apparently in this world, he had pissed off the homicidal ginger before. He had a special talent for pissing people off. It reminded him a little bit of a purifier he had ran into outside of a ColdStones once - Casper had nearly ruined that entire situation again by taunting the guy.

Casper took a few nervous steps backwards, as Chrysi cut Mary and spat off some more lines that he couldn't believe a real person would ever say. "Jackie, no!" Casper then snapped, suddenly lunging forward to try to take over for his brother. He didn't want him restraining a serial killer or anything! Sure, he was pretty certain his brother was a super villain in this world, but he didn't want him to get hurt. His hands started to feel like they were buzzing and they were covered with a blue light, as suddenly Ben became visible to everyone present.

"Uh... What the hell?" Ben muttered, before he shook his head slightly. Tentacles came out from the middle of his body, wrapping around Mary, Chrysi, and Jack and holding them far apart from each other in order to enforce a time out. "Cassie how are you doing this?"

"I-I don't know!" Casper exclaimed, his hands still surrounded by the weird blue light.

"...Well don't stop doing it!" Ben then added.

Dominika Novikova and Runa Blake


Location: Banner Residence - Sydney, Australia
Skills: N/A
Novikova glanced back at Niah for a moment. Tinley was her friend in the real world, meaning that this cause was going to be hers here. It was a way to repay her. She knew that most people assumed that she would just set the world on fire for Sparky, since Sparky was her best friend - but her team were her friends too. She had learned that lesson the hard way. She wasn't going to let the others on her team get burned. "Don't say even, Bautista. You're better than that - you're not a mutant purist," Novikova told the forensics expert. She didn't like that Bautista just grabbed Lance like that, but she didn't know any better. She didn't know that Lance was really Sparky, their friend.

She rolled her eyes at Cass as she told her to stop fighting with Sapphire, trying her best to keep up that appearance to distract from anyone realizing she hadn't been faking that betrayal. However, it was a bit pointless to roll her eyes. It was practically impossible to tell from behind the ruby red shades she had to wear, shades that kept her powers from being constantly triggered whenever she looked at someone. Unlike her earth powers, she couldn't control her dimensional energy perception. "Alright Reed," she acknowledged the request to talk to her, before returning Maria's kiss. At Tinley's wink, however, Novikova's attention was completely redirected.

Did Tinley remember? She couldn't help but find some irony here. The person she had kept a huge secret from in the real world, now she was maybe one of the few people that Novikova could trust... She was certain that Tinley was mentally cackling about it as well. She purposefully walked a little bit more slowly, waiting for Abercrombie to more or less catch up to her, before heading to the jet. "Agent Kennedy would've enjoyed this weather," she said, waiting to see Tinley's reaction. If Tinley knew about Jim, then that would be proof...

Meanwhile, Runa was burning up inside with rage. She heard James' comments and added him to the list of people who she wanted to kill - in this reality or the real one. It didn't matter if he was behind this nightmare or just another person trapped inside of it. If he was a monster here, then he'd be a monster in the real world too - even if he pretended otherwise. Her breath hitched slightly as one of the agents led Lance towards the jet. Another agent then started to lead her there and Runa mentally added her to the kill list as well. She'd remember their faces. She didn't trust a word coming from their mouths about how they wouldn't be hurt.

She let Maria lead her to the ship, deciding to save the mental rebellion energy up for a more opportune moment. There was someone behind them, but she wasn't going to turn around to look at them. She also couldn't help but be more focused on the information that was whispered into her mind. The mind controller was telling the truth. There was then another development, as she felt the woman's control over her mind cease. However, she figured that the woman would still be able to hear her thoughts. "...I am sorry for threatening you," Runa first thought. "...If you search his bedroom, I have some magical artifacts stored there, including a sling ring."

She still didn't really know why this was happening. "Why is this happening to us?" she then thought.

Max heard Wanda speak back to him, telling him how she was oblivious to what it was that ge was talking about. Of course she was, why wouldnt she be? It's so much easier to lie about being in a false world when you're right at the top, she was somebody and clearly had what she wanted in this new universe, reality? Timeline? Not that he could complain either, his life was equally amazing here. Fans adored him, people didnt dispose him or find him to be more of a liability than he was worth. Moments later a small girl approached him with Wanda in tow. He began to wonder if it was worth setting the world back into order. "An interesting way for an interesting man. My names -" suddenly someone began screaming that the Queen had been attacked, the selfsame one who threw him into this new adventure.

"Introductions can wait, suppose I should make myself useful and catch those bastards." Max stepped off from the group and began to search the crowd, looking for the ones responsible. He may not know if he would fix reality yet, but he owed it to this realities Queen to capture her assailants. However the commotion worked for the oposers as there was hardly any trace for him to follow, that is except for the guards tailing after them. Perfect Max placed his hands down by his side and his eyes began to glow their cosmic glow "Aguf" the swirls manifested into nothing. Great, now his powers didnt want to work either? On foot then. He began to run towards the direction that the guards were running, in hopes to help out in some way.

James Kingston




Location: Banner Residence -> The Quinjet
Skills: N/A





James nearly clicked his tongue in irritation but kept his composure. He had an open line and the woman was just casually speaking. Why not mention where they planned to move his son and his human distraction too? Maybe they could hire one of those skywriting planes and write their holding area’s address on it too. James did send Agent Darkholme a glare once her back turned but he refocused quickly. He had little to no time until Banner shut down any chance of discussion… Well, maybe that wouldn’t be such a bad thing. Twist it as an overreaction to a simple home invasion and blame the lack of additional oversight. Then, they’d at least have additional funding for the project.

But that wasn’t the job. And to do it, he needed Banner reasonable. The only way to do that was walking up the ramp right now.

“One moment Dr. Banner” James walked out the house, walking as quickly as he could to catch up with the Banner child as he entered the ship. “I have Lance right here, Dr. Banner. Lance would love to discuss the details of a meeting once you agree to it.” James stopped next to the boy, waiting until the Doctor agreed before passing the phone over. James pulled his weapon out, ready to fire on Lance in case he tried something or it messed up. One could only expect so much from an inhuman after all.

Carolina Reed


]Location: The Palace - New York City, New York
Skills: N/A





Carolina looked over towards Annie for a moment seeing her best friend had noticed something and then noticed the strange red ribbon appearing in front of Princess Wanda. She didn't really have anything else to do right now and looked over towards her wife and gave her a loving kiss on her cheek. "Lets go check it out as well." Carolina said as she started to make her way and followed shortly behind Annie and Princess Wanda. She gave the weird boy a strange look, wondering why he had suddenly made a line of red ribbon to get her attention, as she looked at both the three women who were with her. "It is a little bit weird to get someone's attention but cute in a way as well." Carolina said with a smile.

She then stopped as she heard someone yell as she looked over and noticed Queen Miranda had gone down, she looked over towards October for a moment. "Lets go see what we can do." Carolina said as she looked over towards Annie and Wanda as well seeing as Max had ran off to try and catch the people who had attacked her, and quickly made her way over towards Miranda seeing that Flynn was there as well. There was a lot of blood as she quickly tried to apply pressure onto the wound. She wasn't sure what she was doing but looked over towards October who knew more about the human body than she did. "Is there a way to stop the bleeding?" Carolina asked her.




Cassandra Reed


Location: Red Guard Mobile Unit - Sydney, Australia
Skills: N/A





Cassandra started to watch as one by one members of the team started to leave, she closed her eyes and sighed softly to herself they had some free time to talk now at least a little bit. Seeing Tinley winking at Novikova, she gave her a slight nod as she started to match Novi's pace towards the Quinjet. Right now it was just the three of them that knew about the real world, or reality whatever you wanted to call it. She looked towards her fellow agent she knew what she did was to try and save the two kids which was what she was going to do as well and try and help Bruce as long as he didn't Hulk out on the three of them.

When Novikova mentioned Agent Kennedy she relaxed a bit more, only the members of the team knew what had happened with him as she looked over towards her. "To bad he was a HYDRA mole, but yeah the snake head probably would have loved the warm weather here." Cassandra said to Novikova so that she knew that she was on her side. "What do you know about all of this? I only know what happened in our reality and not this one, Tinley is on the same boat as me to. Logan knows about both worlds, so we can trust him as well." Cassandra whispered towards Novi as she walked to the Quinjet.




Maria Smith


Location: Sydney, Australia - The Banner Residence
Skills: N/A





Maria smiled when Novikova returned the kiss, and started to make her way over towards the Quinjet she was half expecting Runa to fight and struggle against her. She continued to make her way over there until they were now inside as well and made Runa sit across from Lance, and sat down next to the girl. She didn't like the idea of having to use them as bait but they didn't really have much of a choice now at this point. As Maria made sure that Runa didn't do anything stupid she set her bow back down, and looked at the others as they started to come back noticing that Novi and Cass were a bit behind.

She then looked over at Agent Kingston as he made his way inside holding the phone over Lance and then looked over towards him, hoping that the kid wouldn't do anything stupid either. "Just try and not make him Hulk out at all on any of us, that would turn out really bad." Maria said hopefully the kid would take the hint as well to.

Location: The Palace: New York City, New York.
Skills:




Antoinette smiled at Princess Wanda and beamed as she saw her friends had followed on the little adventure too. There was a sudden disturbance in the room that caused everyone to pause in their conversations and turn around. Antoinette got no indication that something was amiss so when she saw what everyone was looking at and that the Queen had fallen, Antoinette was shocked. Everything seemed to zero in on the Queen and immediate crowd around her. Noise became muffled and Antoinette almost felt like she could feel each particle of air along her skin as she went into shock. Then there was movement around the Queen and running. At that change of pace, things snapped back into focus and Antoinette grabbed onto Princess Wanda’s hand and used her own little body as a shield for any other threat; however, whoever committed the heinous crime was already fleeing with a crowd right on their heels.
Carolina and October were already moving towards the Queen. Antoinette looked back at Wanda and loosened her tight hold on her hand. She assumed Wanda would want to go to her mother’s side. Antoinette didn’t even know what she would do if she lost either one of her parents. It was unimaginable. Her eyes softened and she moved out of the way.
”Shall we go to your mother or get out of here?” Antoinette presented either option, not sure what the Princess would want to do but made sure she understood that Antoinette would follow her with either decision.

Niah Bautista





Location: Red Guard Mobile Unit - Sydney, Australia
Skills: N/A



Niah was confused by Novikova's remark. "Mutant purist", in a way Niah was. She had to be to have gotten as far as she had. Niah definitely believed non-mutants had their place and their uses though. Abercrombie was a perfect example of that. Niah also believed that non-mutants deserved better. Was that what Novikova was asking about? She wanted to ask Novikova what she meant but now wasn't the time or place. Something was different today and Niah couldn't place her finger on it.

Niah sat Lance down and sat beside him. He had such a blank look on his face. She tried to hide her concern as it flashed through her own thoughts, Niah covered the look with a frown that she turned to Kingston. Worried about what he was saying to Doctor Banner and what the response would be. She did not want to have to fight the Hulk. Niah checked that her ICER was there, just in case.

Michelle Diggby




Location: Red Guard Mobile Unit - Sydney, Australia -> Quinjet
Skills: N/A





The landscape shimmered, wavy patches of refracted sky obscured where the sky met the dusty vista. Michelle tried to imagine what it would look like if The Hulk did come bounding over the horizon; if he was truly as ferociously fast and powerful as the system said he was he would simply surface out blue in a single bound, breaching majestically like a great green dolphin of certain hospitalisation. The scoul, the rippling muscle tissue, the clenched fists, the effortless, graceless impact on the environment.

Terrifying? Awe inspiring? Michelle couldn't make up her mind except that it was about time to get out of the sun.

Everyone appeared to have filed back on to the jet in swift fashion, a quick check through the windows at the front of the house confirmed this. Michelle's short and uneventful vigil was over, and picking up her feet, she skipped back to ramp. With one final check, Michelle slammed the ramp close button with the same energy she'd slam Ellen Page. As the golden sunlight finally yielded to the closing of the jet's exterior, she was bathed in the softer, bluer artifical light of the fluorenscent tubes over head. Michelle was desperate to remove the body armour, but things were pretty tense in the aisle of the Quinjet. Tinley's mind control was going to wear off eventually and when it did, it wasn't obvious they'd continue to co-operate. Despite the perspiration, the body armour would stay on and in case things got messy, she'd keep the loaded gun too.

Michelle took a seat, placing the shotgun across her lap. She felt sufficiently safe with Kingston brandishing both phone and weapon at Lance. This had to be pretty scary for both of them, Lance and his sorceress friend, but they'd come round in time and realise that none of us wanted it to escalate to this point. Their lack of faith brought us here.

Allison Andrewss


Location: The Palace - New York City, New York (Outfit)
Skills: N/A


Allison was starting to get a bit annoyed with everyone questioning her sanity, even slightly. She understood, it was just aggravating. Still, Howard seemed to believe her in the end. "I'm telling the truth! I don't know who all is here from my world or time or reality or whatever you want to define it as all I know is that we are here for some reason. I really want to go back there, but I am unsure how to." Though, she had to admit, did she want to go back. Sure she didn't enjoy knowing that just because she was a mutant it meant she got higher status and humans were seen as lower beings, but Oshea was here.

No, she knew it wasn't real. Even if her heart felt and hoped it was. Before she could continue, Guin seemed to struggle with something, and she told about what happened back at the party they just left. She fought a mix of feelings. She wanted to leave and go back to her time, this all wasn't real, but at the same time, could she just abandon something like this? "What do you want to do Guin? I mean, I know I'm asking a lot out of you, but if you want to go back and see if she's okay I can come with if you want." Part of her wanted to just tell Guin this all wasn't real, but she knew better. It felt real, and that was all that mattered.



Tinley Abercrombie


Location: Red Guard Mobile Unit - Sydney, Australia
Skills: Mind Control


As Tinley walked along with Novikova, she picked up the hint the girl was throwing around. And it made her feel good knowing she had someone else here who realized what was going on. "Agent Kennedy would have. I agree. Can't help but feel betrayed that he's off somewhere else though, huh?" Tinley hoped that was hint enough she understood what was happening.

She still held on to the boy, but Runa was following along and believed her. "I do not know why this is happening. For some reason, some know this is not what it seems while others are unaware. I intend to find out and I am willing to work with you and everyone else to find the truth. Also, could you maybe see if your boyfriend can calm down? I will speak to him, but we don't need him getting antsy." Tinley then moved into Lance's mind. "Hold on, I know you are angry but calm down. I will provide you with answers when the time is right. The girl with you, I have released her from my hold and she is working with me and a few others. If you can hold on a bit longer, you will learn the truth, I promise."

She got the sense the boy figured this was all real and he was confused about Maria's comment about his father and "hulking out". So hopefully her comment satisfied him to calm down a bit.



Anastasia Reinhardt

Anastasia could only grin. Perhaps she did talk a lot. "You're right, mon ami, talking is done. Now is the time for action." Anastasia prepared herself. She had never had a physical altercation with someone, but she knew the basics at least. She was not strong and probably could not hold her own if it came down to it, so what means did she have?

She moved her hand forward to catch Rogue as she tried to run at her, stopping her. She waved her hand in a swiping motion, moving the girl way with force across the room. She did not hold back. This was training, after all. "Was that good enough for you?" she asked the girl. She was kind of hoping she didn't hurt her too much. But also part of her enjoyed inflicting pain.

"I'm going to go after those who harmed my mother, you I think would be better off going to see if she is alright..." Wanda said to Annie, before she took off at a run of sorts towards the direction Max had gone.

October had gone over to where Carolina and Flynn both were. "Do not worry, my Queen. I'm a mortician - and while you would make a lovely corpse, it is not yet time for your new adventure." she said, before she managed to use her power to cauterize the wound and stop the bleeding.

"Thank you... I would have tried that but my powers are known to go a bit crazy at times..." Flynn commented, letting out a bit of a sigh of relief that October had stopped the bleeding.

Alex had a hold on Jade's arm as he was quickly dragging her along a bit to get to the nearest exit in order to make their get away, however, there was one major problem that managed to stop them in their tracks. Specifically, a certain speedster was in front of the closest exit, and he was looking right at them. "Yeah, wrong way," he muttered under his breath as he dragged her towards a different exit.

"Alex, we should split up," Jade recommended. She figured that they had a chance of one of them getting away from this, but likely not both. The speedster was staring them down and others were chasing after them as well.

"Alright..." he said, letting go of her arm, before making a split second decision to head back towards where Pietro was standing, after giving Jade a smile as he turned away from her. Soon, he disappeared into the crowd, and to the point where he could see Pietro, and he knew that Pietro could see him.

"Good luck," Jade told him plainly. He was a good friend of hers as she headed in the opposite direction of him. She couldn't help but wonder why he had decided to go towards the exit the speedster was at. That was suicide.

"Your grandmother is resting currently, likely watching a movie or something in our room," Howard responded with a bit of a shrug.

I don't know, Flynn is by her right now, I went after the ones responsible for hurting her, came Pietro's response to Guin.

"...My bets is that assassination attempt was orchestrated by the Human Resistance, I don't think anyone else would even attempt that right under the king's nose. So, what do you want to do Guin? We have everything here to do the scans of sorts to see what can be done, or see what your friend Allison here remembers. Unless you want to go back to the Palace, I'd suggest we get started. The Palace is likely in a bit of chaos right now..." he said, nodding his head slightly at what she said, before he pulled out a few pieces of equipment that would let them scan Allison's brain to determine what was going on with her head.

Currently, Howard believed what Allison said, and it wouldn't surprise him if someone actually managed to do something like that. He was wondering how it was that she remembered this "other" reality, and why it didn't seem like anyone else did.





Rogue smirked slightly at Ana, clearly enjoying the sort of fight. "Good, thought this would be a bit one sided all things considerin'. This'll be fun, that I do know, so let's go, talkin' durin' a fight is not how you do things round here." With that last comment she charged at her again, and this time managed to land a punch in Ana's face, knocking her backwards and down onto the ground.

"This definitely will be fun," she added as she started hovering above the ground.

“Ya know mes amis, come to think of it, Ayita can spar with her frère. I’ll take on Bobbi, think that’ll make things a bit more interesting n’est-ce pas?” Gambit said, looking over at Bobbi now. Ayita nodded her head simply, before she and Richard started sparring against one another, leaving Bobbi to go up against Gambit.


"Uh, hey Casper? Or I guess kind of Ben really, mind letting go of me?" Jack asked, clearly not at all surprised by what his brother was doing. He was trying to get free a bit from Ben's grip, but it was not very easy, even with him trying to use his powers to get free.

Mary wasn't really trying to get free, more of just managing to free her arms from Ben's grip so that she was able to at least apply some pressure to her arm, but the hand that she had covering the injury was covered in blood. The bleeding didn't seem to be slowing down or stopping either.

"Another reason to at least let the two of us go and not the psychopath is because she needs some bandages for that arm Casper..."

"Let go of me you drug addict!" Chrysi snapped, fighting to get out of Ben's grip as well. Unlike the other two, she was actually having some slight success at it, and was nearly free, and right now, she was glaring at Casper, her eyes flashing with anger and the ground around them started shaking. Vines shot up from the ground, breaking through the pavement as it went charging at Casper.

They stopped only about an inch from Casper, as Mary was using her own powers to stop Chrysi, but in doing so she ended up removing her hand that had been applying pressure to her injury, holding it out to stop the vines, just barely. They'd twitch every now and then as the two were fighting over who was controlling them. "That's enough Chrysi..."

"Shut up Goldilocks, no one asked you."




"What part of put my goddamn son on the phone NOW do you NOT understand?!" Banner snapped at James, and it was clear that he was not calming down or relaxing at all. It also was becoming even more apparent that he was not in the mood to talk to James at all, considering this is the third time he's asked to talk to Lance, and hasn't said much of anything to James.

Lance flinched slightly when James pointed his weapon at him. This definitely was not something he was used to dealing with. His eyes flickered over towards Maria, a hint of confusion evident on his face from the words she had spoken about Banner. What in the world were they talking about? Hulk out? What did that mean? None of this was making sense, but he did hear his father's voice on the phone, as he was basically shouting, so others would be able to hear it as well. This was new to him too, he'd never heard him that angry ever in his life. "W-W-What are you talking about? What's going on?" he sort of stammered out in response to what Tinley had said.

"Thought we established that we don't want him to Hulk out?" Sapphire commented, looking over at James, having heard Banner's words on the other end. "At this rate he'll Hulk out and probably be able to rip us to shreds or something."

"Relax Clarke, not like we can do too much right now about it," Mystique responded with a shrug.

"Alright Raven, how about we actually think to do something at the moment. We've got a normally unused facility here in Australia, we can move the pair there and keep an eye on them or find a way to talk with Banner there, so we aren't just sitting around doing nothing," Wolverine cut in, looking over at the others. He was coming up with at least an idea, and this way those who do have some memory of the real world could see about talking about what to do now.

Then, on the other end of the phone, James would be able to hear what sounded like a scream of sorts, the phone hitting the ground, and then the line going dead. Sounds like the thing they feared happening just happened. The Hulk was loose and heading straight for them.

Guin Stark


Location: Stark Tower - New York City, New York (Outfit)
Skills: Telepathy (Mental Link), Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Investigation
Guin could sense Allison's growing irritation, but she wasn't in the headspace to empathize too much with her. There had been an assassination attempt on her fiancé's mother, someone Guin was rather close to. Even if Allison was somehow proved right, that didn't make any of this less real to her. Even if it was all just happening inside of their heads, it was real - even Dumbledore had said as much in the Harry Potter books.

She bit her lip slightly, hearing Pietro's responses. Her hands shook. Do you want me to come back to the Palace? she inquired. No Guina, stay there where it is safer, I don't want to risk these guys still being here when you return and don't want to risk you getting hurt. Guin nodded slightly, it was a bit of a force of habit. Okay. I'll be here with my grandfather. Be careful, okay? Okay, don't worry, I see one of the ones responsible right now. ....Kill the bastard. He might get a public execution tomorrow.

Taking a breath, Guin shook her head at her grandfather and Allison. "No, let's get those tests done. If the Human Resistance is there, it's not safe anyways," she replied. They were already down in the lab and she went and got everything set up for the brain scan. It essentially looked like a standard set up for an MRI - a giant open tube of sorts that Allison would be able to lie down and stick her brain inside. Guin fetched a small vial of a dye and injected Allison with it. "We're going to do a PET scan to eliminate some possibilities, I just injected you with a dye that'll allow us to do that. Of course, we're doing an MRI as well and... Gramps, anything else you want to look at?" Guin asked.

She didn't really know what to think about Allison. She knew that she could do another telepathic sweep of her brain, but she trusted the scientific tests more. If Allison was telling the truth, then there were troubling implications. Would she be able to trust any of the members of the Royal Family? Was this reality better or worse than the one they had before? She felt like she'd need a degree in philosophy in order to sort out the moral dilemmas that Allison's claims brought on.

"When you're ready, lie down and keep your head still. Do not talk," Guin instructed her friend.

Casper Theriot


Location: Outside - New Orleans, Louisiana
Skills: Mediumship
"... They can see me," Ben muttered, astonished and not sure if he believed it. As a ghost, he didn't dream, otherwise he would have chalked all of this up to a nightmare. Maybe Casper had found a way to share his dreams with him? No, that didn't make sense, Casper had never been able to do that before... but then again, he also hadn't been able to channel Ben into the real world. Casper had turned the intangible tangible.

"Jackie does not seem nearly as stunned as he should be," Casper informed his friend. It must have been normal for him to be able to do this sort of thing in this world. His arms were shaking a bit from the effort, but the blue glow didn't leave his hands and Casper had zero idea how to turn these things off! It was a bit strange, hearing Jack try to negotiate with him. Usually, this sort of talk was reserved for whenever David and Val went nutty and there weren't enough inhibitors around. Then there was the cliché serial killer, yelling at him and calling him a drug addict. At least it was true.

"Hey Ben, I have an idea," Casper said, after Mary dealt with the vines.

"Yeah?" Ben asked, turning his head to look at Casper. He still had his tentacles wrapped around the other three.

"...Hulk smash?" Casper suggested. While he hadn't ever met the Hulk before and neither had Ben, they both had watched plenty of YouTube videos. There were tons of them featuring the Hulk going crazy and flinging things around. Ben seemed to get the idea and he released Jack and Mary. Hopefully Jack would be able to get the nice, yet still slightly cliché, Strawberry Shortcake seeming woman to safety.

Ben let out a bit of a scream and Casper gave him a look, before the ghost started flinging Chrysi around like a rag doll. He was trying his best to knock her out, but the ginger wasn't down for the count just yet. "...Well, there was bound to be some technicality difficulties, but you got this Ben!" Casper cheered. He figured if Ben didn't succeed, Chrysi would try to kill them all again.

Dominika Novikova and Runa Blake


Location: The Quinjet - Sydney, Australia
Skills: N/A
Runa's heart skipped a beat, seeing James' weapon pointed at Lance. Loki had to be behind all of this, in some shape or form, she was certain of it. Who else could do something so cruel and twisted? She silently cursed the God of Mischief, swearing to bring him to Asgardian justice once this was all resolved. Her hands twitched slightly as one of the agents raised the lamp, closing the quinjet, but she didn't perform any magic. "If Lance is shot or otherwise harmed..." Runa let the threat trail off. "My uncle, Loki, he may be responsible for this... This smells of one of his tricks, but his magic should not be this strong as to warp an entire realm..."

Maybe Loki had obtained the Reality Stone - Runa could see that working, giving him the power to do this. However, she had to wonder why he would set up a world like this. Was it to punish them all, by twisting their greatest desires into the darkest nightmares? She supposed it could be him, but she knew that her uncle desired a crown. He would have made himself King of the Nine Realms. But who else could it have been, if not Loki?

However, the agent had asked her to try to calm Lance. She didn't like the idea of moving towards him, when the one agent had his gun pointed at Lance. Against her better judgment, Runa walked slowly over to Lance and took his hand, giving it a squeeze. It was the most she could do and if the agents freaked out over it, well, the not-sorceress could explain she had made Runa do it, in order to keep him calm.

Meanwhile, Novikova was digesting what Cass told her. She had to put her disappointment in Niah's moderately anti-human and anti-inhuman sentiments aside. Wolverine was like her and he remembered both worlds, both realities - while both Tinley and Cass only knew the original reality. She had to assume that everyone else here was clueless. Tinley's response to her statement further confirmed what Cass had told her. Thankfully, no one here had the ability to hear thoughts beyond Tinley, meaning she could keep this information private.

"Agent Kennedy will get his," Novikova agreed. "Though... Agent Abercrombie, I did see something you would appreciate when I looked at the boy. I saw an amusing other life for him - one where he was a female engineer named Theresa." That was Sparky's real name. She didn't know who here could be trusted, but everyone knew that she had the ability to see alternate lives of an individual, giving her gazes into the different universes in the multiverse. Only Tinley and Cass would understand the implications of that statement. If Lance and Sparky were the same person, then since Lance Banner existed in their original reality, it meant that either he or Sparky had to have come from a different universe.

How that fit into all of this, Novikova had no idea.
