IC: Beast (X-Manor)
“I think that is about enough excitement for the night,” Hank said stepping forward. “I recommend that all students go to bed now so you can open the rest of the presents in the morning,” Beast said.
IC: Romulus, Stranger (USMARIID)
Romulus watched as the USMARIID battle progressed, he saw the young sorcerer unleash purple energy blasts at some of the Cold-Bloods, knocking them back. The ancient mutant reached out with his telepathic powers.
It is I, Romulus. Your father’s oldest friend, don’t you recall me? Suddenly Romulus began to pour fake memories into Ares head. One such memory was that of Romulus walking with Ares' father talking. He also implanted a memory of Romulus patting Ares on the head as a small boy.
Ares fell to the ground and grasped as his head. What’s happening to me? Who are you! He shouted in his own mind. I’m with the Hellfire Club Ares, the faction your father joined before you died. Don’t you remember?
Ares saw himself as a young boy standing in the Hellfire mansion. His father walked over to him. “You can never tell anyone about this my son, the Avengers would try to remove me, they don’t see the truth, that the Hellfire Club is right for the world.” He said softly. “One day you will understand, and you will take your place at my side as a loyal member to the club.”
Why hadn’t Ares remembered these things until now? He had a strange sensation as if he was forgetting things, which was true since Romulus was secretly removing conflicting memories from his head.
Behind the crates, in the shadows you will find me, and you will learn the truth. Romulus sent Ares. Ares began to drift towards the massive crates, in the shadows he saw a hulking figure; the same one from his memories. Romulus.
Your father would have wanted this. Romulus sent Ares telepathically as his mouth twisted into a grin.
