New Mutants IN SPACE!! Unlimited # 7

Cover Description: Sinister is standing next to a figure in a red full body costume. Curt is lying on the ground in front of them either, dead or unconscious.

Continuity note: This takes place a week before the team leaves for space.

Title: Speed Kills!

The book opens with Curt standing on a busy street looking both mad and scared. He’s got on street clothes with a backpack over his shoulder.

He thinks to himself. “What the hell is taking him so long? I’ve been standing here for almost an hour. Maybe I’ll get lucky and he won’t show up.”

Just then a limo pulls up. And the window closest to the street lowers.

“Hello Curtis”

The hairs on the back of Curt’s neck stand up when he hears the voice. It’s him. It’s


Curt gets in then notices a man sitting across from Sinister. “Who-? I thought you said you wanted to talk to me?”

Sinister’s eyes glow red as he says “Relax my boy. This is an associate of mine. Curtis, please say hello to Robert Baker.”

Robert disdainfully looks at Curt and says “Are you sure HE is up to it?”

Sinister smiles and replies “Don’t underestimate Mr. Camden, he’s an exceptional young man.”

“Look, you two, you don’t have to talk about me as if I’m not here, speaking of which, what the hell do you need me for? I agreed to your terms…a favor when you called…but let’s get this shit over with, so I can be done with you.”

The limo pulls to a stop in front of an office building. A doorman rushes to the door to open it. Baker gets to the door to exit then turns back “You will contact me when you have the items? I cannot stress how important this is to me!”

Sinister doesn’t reply, and Baker realizes he isn’t going to and leaves the limo. The doorman closes the door and the limo pulls off.

“Who the hell was that guy? And what does he have to do with you calling me?”

“I’ve already told you who he was. As far as what he has to do with our deal…well you owe me…and I owe him, so to speak. So you will do a favor for both of us. Then you can be “rid of me” as you so request. That is…if you still choose to.”

“Mr. Suggs, to the airport!”

“Airport? Wait, where are we going? I can’t be gone from the mansion too long….they’ll know I’m gone…ask questions…what are you trying to do get me expelled?!

Sinister smiles again, his teeth as always shimmering in the night, “My boy, relax you’ll be back in a few hours, trust me.”

The next scene opens up and both Curt and Sinister are in a laboratory. It is obviously one of Sinister’s. Mr. Suggs (Hairbag) is seen in the background carrying a small box towards Sinister and Curt.

Curt seems less afraid now, but still angry, “So you’ve dragged me all the way to Scotland, and I still don’t know why. And how do you manage to keep a jet like that at a commercial airport?”

Sinister starts pacing and doing the typical villain monologue “My, my, my you’re almost as impatient as Quicksilver. Perhaps it’s a speedster thing? Hmm….well my boy firstly, money makes anything possible. Through my various companies I am able to make use of various high tech inventions…including the plane that brought us here in just over an hour (Shhh! Comic book science!). Second, you’re going to help me attain artificial DNA of various mutants that I will in turn give to Mr. Baker.”

“Artificial DNA? What?”

Still pacing Sinister without turning back says “Yes, Mr. Baker want’s actual DNA but frankly, I don’t trust him. This DNA will give him most of the benefits he requires…but will remain unstable. That will allow me more control over his experiments”

Curt visibly frustrated yells “So what? I just go to the local DNA Bank and ask for all the mutant DNA then carry it back here?!?!?

Sinister turns now and laughs “No, you will carefully place this device” He holds up something about the size of an Ipod “into the mainframe. It will allow me to exactly recreate any DNA ever present at the facility you will be visiting. But first, because I care about your identity, you will wear this costume.” Sinister motions to Hairbag who drops a red costume onto a nearby lab table. “I was thinking you could refer to yourself as Speedkill. Has a nice ring to it don’t you think? Also, and not that I don’t have any faith in your abilities…but I’ll be providing you with a little “help” just in case.”

“Fine, you know what….never mind fine. Where am I going and what do I have to do. I’m tired and ready to get it over with!”

Again Sinister grins “Why, only the comprehensive mutant research facility. I believe you’ve heard of Muir Island?”
