    "Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking," the voice says from the speaker overhead. "We're about to make our final approach into Orlando, so please observe the seatbelt and no-smoking signs. It's a pleasant 82 degrees on the beach, so be sure to get out and enjoy the sun, and thank you for flying with us today."

    "So there really is just a human in the front of this piloting it?" Atlas asks nervously, adjusting the baseball cap that hides the cluster of computer jacks on his scalp as the flight attendant walks by, making sure everyone follows the captain's orders. "There's not a computer or something running things?" he asks when she passes.

    "The plane has an autopilot that does most of the work," Megan explains, always eager to show off her knowledge, "but yes, there is a human component. Ours is named Mike."

    "And there aren't any antigravity thrusters or anything on this? We're just... flying through the air?" he says, looking out at the bright white clouds under the wing of the plane.

    "No antigravity," Megan agrees with a smile.

    "And the ocean... we can actually swim in it? There's no toxic waste or mutroids?"

    "Yes!" Sam says exasperatedly, flopping around in her seat to look back at the young man in the baseball cap. "Geez, doesn't anyone in the future know how to have fun?"

    "Ixnay on the uture-fay, ummy-day," Clarissa hisses, nodding at the young boy across the aisle who seems to be taking an interest in the teenagers' conversation.

    "Mommy, that guy has a computer head!" the boy says, pulling on his mother's sleeve.

    "That's nice, dear," the woman replies without glancing up from her romance novel.

    The year is 1995, and anti-mutant riots are sweeping the nation. Fearing what might happen to you if your true nature is discovered, your parents have enrolled you in Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, where you can learn to harness your amazing gifts, or at least be isolated from those who fear and hate you. But for now, it's summer vacation, and Aino, Sam, Megan, Clarissa and Atlas are headed for Disney World!

    "You know, it's a good thing Atlas can fool the metal detectors into not going off," Sam whispers to you as the five teenagers and Sam's mother debark into the crowded terminal, surrounded by hordes of tourists in Hawaiian shirts, Bermuda shorts, and sunglasses. "I don't think we'd be able to talk our way out of an 'Excuse me sir, why do you have more electronics in your head than Darth Vader.' And it's not like Clarissa would be any help," she says, elbowing you as she points out the blonde girl attached to Atlas' arm, explaining all the components of late 20th-century American airports. "She's been mooning over him the whole flight. I mean, he's like way too old for her, you know? He's gotta be at least seventeen."

    "I don't know why I let you talk me into bringing him along," Sam's mother says, overhearing the last bit of your conversation. "I thought this was going to be a trip for just us girls!"

    "Mooooo-oom," Sam whines. "I told you, he's an orphan! And he has no place to go except hang around the school with the Professor for a week while we're gone! Plus, he's never even been out of New York before in his life! Oh, hey, we need to get him a swimsuit!"

    "Plus we're the only people he knows for the next hundred years, right?" Megan whispers from your other side, smiling.

    Suddenly, someone collides with you, knocking you backward as your suitcase slips from your hand and bangs against the tiled terminal floor!

    "Oh dear, I'm terribly sorry, miss," the man says, reaching by you to retrieve your suitcase. As Sam helps you back to your feet, you realize he was on the same plane as you and your friends - and if you didn't know better you could swear he'd been watching you during the flight as well!

    "Aino?" Sam asks after he hands your suitcase back and walks away past you. "Everything OK?"

    What now, mutie?

    Feel torn about Clarissa having so much fun with Atlas.

    Also, Atlas is -such- a code name. He needs a real one, like 'Charles'. Oh yeah, and check to make sure you've got all your stuff and grin to the strange man and say 'yes'.

    "What's wrong, forgot your underwear?" Sam laughs as you brace your suitcase up against a bench and pop it open. "You *did* bring a swimsuit, right? Ohmygosh, do you think Atlas can even go in the water, or do you think his head is gonna get all rusty and short circuit?"

    "Geez, Sam, could you put a lid on it for ten minutes?" Megan asks, receiving a nice wet raspberry for her trouble. "Ewww," she says, wiping the front of her top dramatically. Hey, what's wrong, did something get broken?" she asks, peering over your bent-over back with concern.

    "Girls, let's go, we're going to miss our ride to the hotel!" Sam's mom calls, turning around to realize that the three of you aren't next to her anymore.

    "Well, whatever's the matter we can take care of it later, right?" Sam asks, as Clarissa laughs loudly at something Atlas says.

    check pockets and suitcases for bugs AND for our wallet. We just walked into Tourist Central. Even if he was on the flight with us doesn't preclude him from being a pickpocket.

    I'm assuming we've already handed off that vintage pic of Johnny Storm, and our Penguinel Battle Armor is safely stowed back in our room in the Mansion, along with the 2099 wrist-computer. Let McCoy have fun playing with that, brushing up on 100 years of biology, physics, and technology.

    "What do you mean, a bug? Oh wow, like a spy thing?" Clarissa whispers excitedly once you're all piled into the shuttle van and rolling through the palm-tree-lined streets of Orlando. "Ohmygosh, first you're like, traveling through time and hanging out with Johnny Storm and now you've got like, international espionage stuff going on! Thanks a billion for that again, by the way."

    "Um..." she pauses, frowning at your suitcase. "Well, I don't s- wait a minute." With that she pops it open and sticks her hand in, rummaging around and pulling up a tiny piece of metal, no larger than the head of a push-pin! "Here's your problem," she says, holding it up to reflect the bright Florida sunlight across its silvery surface. "But how did that guy get it all the way inside your suitcase without opening it?"

    "Maybe he's a mutant," Sam whispers, making sure her mother is preoccupied talking to the driver from the front seat. "Maybe his superpower is planting spy cameras in teenage girls' bikinis!" With that the girls erupt into shrieks of laughter, which Atlas can't help but join in on. "Hey, Atlas, what can you tell about this?"

    As he takes it from her fingers and examines it closely, Megan asks "So what's your real name, anyway? Aino's just been calling you Atlas since she brought you back with her."

    The young man looks up, confused for a moment, then looks out the window at the palm trees racing by. "I - I don't really have another name. I'm a degen, you know?" He looks around at the blank faces staring at him and says dryly "You don't know."

    "Anyway," he says, looking away again, "Whatever happened before Stark-Fujikawa bought me, I don't know. As far as I'm concerned, I've always been Atlas," he says, handing the tiny electronic component back to Clarissa.

    "Oh, kids, here's our hotel!" Sam's mom says with delight as the fifty-story building looms into view up the block ahead of you.

    "Charles...Atlas?" he asks, as he sticks his arms out to the sides helplessly, not sure what you're doing until you're already embracing him. "Is that some kind of twencen reference that I'm not getting?" he says, to the smirks of you and Megan.

    "I don't get it either," Clarissa says, throwing an arm around him and sticking her tongue out at you behind Charles' back jokingly.

    "So who's Johnny Storm?" Charles asks as you all walk out of the hot sun and into the air-conditioned lobby.

    "Nobody!" Clarissa says defiantly.

    "That's not what you said when you were shrieking and rolling around on the floor after Aino gave you that picture," Sam says, poking her in the back and crying out with laughter as Clarissa breaks her hold on Charles to chase after Sam.

    "Girls, get back-" Sam's mother begins to say, before giving up and plastering on a big smile for the clerk at the front desk.

    "Hey, there's a hot tub in the bathroom!" Megan calls from the other room.

    "Atlas, you'll have to sleep on the couch in my suite, I'm afrai- what, you girls are calling him Charles now?" Sam's mom says, exasperated. "Girls, he's not a puppy, you can't just rename him! And Atlas is a perfectly nice name, dear," she says to him. "Very regal."

    I say we stow the bug in a safe or freeze it in a time bubble out of sight. We probably should tell the academy about it though.

    As the others all file out of the room into the hallway and race toward the elevators in a thunderous commotion, Sam stays behind while you dial the Mansion's number from the hotel room's phone. A moment later, you hear Ms. Grey's voice say "Hello," but as you start to speak she continues with "You have reached the Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters. Please leave a message and someone will return your call as soon as possible-"

    "Nobody home?" Sam asks. "Well, leave it here, then. They already said it wasn't transmitting anywhere, right?"

    With that you and Sam join the others for a well-earned afternoon montage of frolicking on the beach!


    Atlas' first hot dog!

    Sam running through a crowd of seagulls and sending them flying into the air!


    Clarissa teasing Megan about keeping her shirt and shorts on!

    Atlas' second hot dog!

    The seagulls returning to harass Sam!

    Atlas trying to recover his baseball cap from one of the birds!

    "Hey, Aino," Sam says, paddling up to you as the two of you bob in the warm Atlantic water. "Look, it's that guy from the airport again!

    As she points, you squint into the bright afternoon sunshine and scan your eyes across the crowd of bikini- and brief-clad beachgoers, when suddenly you catch sight of a man standing near the surfboard rental shack in a three-piece suit and tie - the same man that ran into you in the airport earlier!

    "incidentally, do you like ice creams? I'm kinda in the mood for a banana split"

    Make him/it spill EVERYTHING! Otherwise, where did we *exactly* find this pin? Maybe he doesn't know anything and this was placed by the X-mansion so they know we didn't get to bump uglies with some agent from an Eroge game who will bring the Antichrist forth this land!

    The man does an about-face and begins reading the menu of the Snax Shack next to the board rental hut as you approach, nervously listing off the names of ice cream flavors out loud: "Raspberry, Peach, Strawberry, hmm-"

    "Yaah!" he shouts when you begin addressing him, knocking a surfboard propped up against the side wall of the rental hut over. As he stoops down and rights it, he points his finger at you a few times and sputters "You know, you have a remarkable ability to make things more difficult for me!"

    He leans up against the counter of the Snax Shack and takes off one shoe, pouring a trail of sand out of it. As he does so, he suddenly finds Sam and Clarissa in his face!

    "Hey pal, what's the idea of stalking Aino, huh? You some kind of Sentinel lackey or what?"

    "Excuse me, I don't have anything to do with-" he starts to say before looking at you and sighing. That instant, the two girls halt motionless, as does everything around them!

    A glowing rectangle the size of a doorway suddenly appears in the wall of the rental shack, and beyond it is too bright to see!

    "Would you please step into my office for a moment? There's something we need to discuss."

    As you step through the glowing portal with the mysterious man in tow, you find yourself in-


    Just... an endless expanse of white, reaching out in all directions around you! The glowing portal hangs in the air, unsupported by anything, and as your stomach begins to drop out from under you, you catch sight of a chair floating motionless in front of you and grab for it!

    The man in the business suit, meanwhile, simply strolls into the room as if there was ground under him, and plants himself behind an ordinary 20th-century office desk!

    The two of you sit without speaking for a moment in the vast empty non-space, as he taps something into the computer on his desk and frowns. "You know, I was hoping to keep you from having to deal with this directly, but you've been making things really difficult for all of us. I'm under a lot of pressure from the folks upstairs to wrap this little time/space collapse business up as neatly as possible, and that involves keeping an eye on the parties involved," he says, waving a ballpoint pen, "You among them," he continues, "until we can be sure that everything is largely back to normal."

    This is a very good point.

    If there's anything that our recent adventures have taught us, it's that cavalierly entering strange glowing gateways in the fabric of reality is a great way to get stuck outside of your home timezone for the next half-dozen issues. If everything right now is frozen, then there's no reason why we can't talk business here. And there's ice cream here, which is a good thing to have when undertaking any serious conversation that about time manipulating issues.

    "Er, well, this is just one office. The rest of it is really quite busy."

    "The TVA exists outside of the timestream, to answer your question," he says. "We monitor timelines, keep track of when they diverge, that sort of thing. Let me tell you, we were all quite worried about the ramifications of that collapse! My neck was really on the line about that one, but then you pulled through marvelously! That Master Mold, on the other hand..." he shakes his head.

    Hey, this is coming out of nowhere, but can Clarissa and Atlas communicate with each other telepathically? Seems to me that if they both have a target-limited form of telepathy, and it's directed at the same target, their minds might be on the same "wavelength", so to speak. At the very least, they could probably use Atlas' headputer as an intermediary.

    "Oh, yes, of course you can still use your powers. As they are, there's nothing about them that can affect the timestream. If that changes, you might hear from us again," he says, frowning and glowering at you for a moment before smiling. "Kidding! But you will hear from us again if this happens again in your timeline's future."

    To be honest, I think Aino should probably be a bit afraid of using her powers at this point. She DID end reality as she knew it through them, and did get quite a few people killed...

    Also, we should ask to see Dr. Ricards and company/our parents/anyone else we care about and saw on the trip, just to make sure they're okay. This is relaxing, yeah, but what Aino went through had to have less immediate effects. (Got most of the FF killed, however necessarily...)

    "I don't think I can take much more of this sun," Atlas says to you wearily, wiping his brow as you all shuffle back up to the hotel. "There's a lot less pollution in this era!"

    "Yeah, Clarissa, maybe you should give him mouth-to-mouth resuscitation!" Megan giggles.

    As the night goes on, he's never far from sight, watching from a distance like a guardian angel, and as you ascend to the highest point of the roller coaster and look from Mobius far below you to the girls in the car in front of you, the fireworks begin to explode in the night sky.

    There's a simple explanation for the confusion, SuperFan, one Mr. Mobius would be happy to clear up ad nauseam! Mutant Quest takes place in a timeline other than the 616 universe, so even though we might see some familiar faces from more weighty continuities, this also gives us some leeway to have a little fun outside of the standard canon!
