Title: Family Reunion

Cover Description: Lex standing alone in a dark alley, he's covered in blood.

"Are you going or what?" Jubilee asks, clearly annoyed.

Lex sighs, "Yes, I suppose I am. She wanted to see me." He gets up and grabs his jacket.

"Alright, have fun." Jubilee smiles and kisses him.

"I'll try, but I'm not sure how I'm going to handle all this." He leaves and heads down to the garage.

"Where you headed, Lex?" Cyclops asks as he gets out of his car.

"To see my parents, I got a letter from them."

"Oh," Scott seems suprised. "I thought you didn't get along with them."

"Yeah, but I guess my mom doesn't blame me for what happened." Lex sighs. "And my dad has forgiven me."

"Well, have fun."

"Yeah, everyone keeps saying that…" Lex says under his breath as he gets into the car. He drives into town and gets on the highway. As he drives towards his former home he starts to think about things.

My life has really changed since the last time I was there. I had that accident on the subway, I should really find some way to make up for that…14 people died because of me. Then there was my stint with Magneto, I don't even want to think about that. The whole thing with the Hellions really made me think about things. All in all, I think that this whole experience has really helped me. Yeah…that's what I can tell them. Perhaps I shouldn't mention the subway thing…

After about a half hour drive he parks in front of an old apartment building. "Here goes nothing." he thinks as he gets out of the car. He slowly walks up to the door and knocks.

The door flings open and a rather short woman is standing in the doorway. "Alex!!!" She embraces Lex.

"Christ, Mom…you look…great." Lex is blown away at how much the plastic surgery has helped her. "I…I can't…"

"Don't say anything dear, just come in." She ushers Lex into the house and into the living room where there are cookies on the table. "Sit, we have so much to catch up on. GEORGE YOUR SON IS HOME!"

"So dad is here?" Lex asks quietly.

"Yes, he still loves you Alex. He was just upset…"

"Hello, Alex." Lex's dad says as he comes down the stairs. "It's good to see you, boy." He hugs Lex.

"Yeah, dad, it's good to see you too." He pauses. "I've been thinking, how did you guys track me down?"

"We saw you on the news after that thing with William Stryker." Lex's dad replies.

"Yes, and we had to write to you. It's so great to see you, Alex." His mother looks like she's on the verge of tears.

"Don't cry, mom. I'm glad I came down, I almost didn't." Lex smiles.

"So, Alex. Tell us what's happened since…then." Lex's dad says as he sits down next to Lex's mom.

"Well, it's been interesting to say the least. I'm on a team of other people, people like me. We've been going on missions and all sorts of things. The best part has to be my girlfriend, we've been together for a few months….she's pregnant."

"What?!" His mother asks, suprised.

"Yeah, mom. I'm having a baby." Lex smiles.

"Alex…" His father says slowly.

"Don't worry, Dad. I'm taking full responsibility."

His mother looks ashamed.

"Mom, really, don't be upest. I'm happy about it, I can't wait to hold my little girl."

"Well, Alex, if you're happy…I guess I'm happy." She smiles at him.

There's a knock at the door.

"Odd…we weren't expecting anyone." Lex's dad gets up and goes to the door. They hear him scream.

Lex jumps to his feet and runs to the door. His father is holding his shoulder, which is bleeding. There's is a woman at the door holding a sai, the other is in Lex's Father's shoulder. She pulls it out slowly and pushes past him.

"Who the fuck are you?" Lex yells.

"My name is Elektra, I'm the last person you'll ever see." She walks towards him slowly.

Lex runs to the back door, he won't have this fight in his parent's apartment. He bursts into the back yard, already absorbing heat to boost himself. Elektra walks out after him. "They can never make it easy," she muses.

Lex charges at her, taking her off her feet. "JUST LEAVE! I WON'T DO THIS HERE!" He screams.

"I'm sorry, but I'm getting paid to be here." She stabs him in the chest.

Lex pulls the sai out and throws it to the ground, he's dealt with worse. He punches her in the face as his parents enter the backyard. Elektra leaps behind Lex and grabs her fallen sai.

"Get back in the house!" Lex yells to his parents.

Elektra throws a sai at him, he dodges. It hits his mother in the chest, and she collapses. "Janine!" Lex's father yells as he catches his wife.

Lex turns to and punches her square in the mouth. She kicks him in the mouth. He punches her in the stomach, he can hear her ribs break. "I've had worse," she says as she slashes him across the face.

"You. Are. A. Bitch." Lex knocks her down and runs towards his mother. As he gets closer his father slowly shakes his head. Lex stops.

"She's…gone…" his father says through his tears.

"No…." Lex turns back to Elektra. "You…" Lex runs towards her. She catches him with a stab to the arm. Good, use up my durability. Lex slams her into a nearby tree, getting stabbed twice more in the process. At this point, his strength and durability are all but gone. He pins her to the ground, she struggles enough to use his remaining strength and knocks him off.

Lex stands up, bleeding from about 10 places. The slash on his face is bleeding all over his clothes. "I'll kill you." He sends a torrent of flame at her, but she dodges out of the way.

"I'm not that easy to hit," She's almost laughing at him.

"FUCK YOU!" Lex screams as he heats up her blood stream. Elektra falls to the ground as her blood heats up. Before Lex is finished with her, her blood is lieterally boiling. She's dead.

"Alex!" His father yells after watching his son murder Elektra. "This is all your fault…I never should have forgiven you! If you hadn't come back…."

"Fuck you…" Lex says simply as he walks away. He can hear the police sirens apporaching. He gets into his car and drives away, leaving his father to handle the cops.

Anyone who already read this, may want to read it again. I changed the fight scene.

Dude, killing Elektra is as useful as killing Jean Grey.

Less useful, even.

Well… has Elektra come back as often?

Not that anyone cares.

The amount of times a character can return is both inversely, and directely related to their popularity.

The less popular, the more likely nobody notices they are dead, and just writes them back in, the more popular, the less issues between death and reviving.

I'm trying to figure out what characters hit the middle ground for this theory.
