IC - Cerberus - New York:Usually, Cerberus avoided crowds and chaos. The black-hooded vigilante had arrived on scene in time to see an X-Man float down from a skyscraper, eat grenades and gunfire, before being blasted into the ground by a chaingun, and a braceload of missiles from an Apache. Thankfully, he had taken great care to stay concealed in the midst of the excitement.The vigilante put away his cellphone, having caught some of the exchange with his camera. He'd heard the X-Man boast about refusing to register, and even managed to catch him getting mauled by every marine on the ground. "Wikileaks will love this." He frowned and watched as a shock seemed to ripple through the crowd below. The young man leaned carefully against his hiding spot, out of sight, face concealed by a scarf. "The underground news community is exploding. First, a riot ripples through the square. Then a rocket had blows up the Fox News chopper. Then, the President is snatched like a kid at a playground. Then, someone blows up the President's 1%er dinner party. Then, the President appears in Washington, and gets decapitated on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial by the leader of one of the most notorious terrorist groups on the planet." Followed shortly by the announcement of a New World Order by a crazed retro religious man, and the execution of both Quicksilver and the other terrorist by lead. "What the ****." "It doesn't make any sense." Cerberus rubbed the bridge of his nose, closing his eyes and scowling. "There's too much going on here to be a coincidence. There must be some bigger picture here." He massaged his temple quietly, as he watched the soldiers and heroes below fall into shock. "Who profited from this improbable set of circumstances?" His violet eyes grew grim. "And who's gonna take the fall?"
