« Yay. »

"Joseph!"

I try to keep his blood hard enough to keep the spikes from getting in too deep. I try to keep up my attack, but it's much harder.

And then he vanishes, and I redouble my efforts to choking them out by oxegen depravation.

Osmosis's Sentinel uses his Greg like powers to lower his center of gravity and make the wind much less effective.

Having no powers, Blind can't even see anything currently. So instead, he calmly sits on the ground.

In actuality, he's waiting for a Sentinel to get near. If one did, he'd shoot it.

Rogue says to Damien, "I was just going on best guess. The files got destroyed before we could get much than a glance at them. All we know is that Sinister is working on something called Bio-Sentinels…whatever the hell that is and he had a stockpike of unlabelled genetic material."

Uh… new tack.

I can shift to wind at the drop of a hat because air is, like, everywhere. If I'm somewhere where there's no air, I have bigger issues. I figure, though, what else is everywhere?

Well, considering I can see, light would be one thing.

I try that, making an attempt to feel for it and shift into it. If I succeed, I blast the sentinel in front of me.

Rogue says, "IF they were just clones and the sort, they aren't really alive." Rogue holds up her hand, "And I don't want to get into a big debate about that, thank you very much. But, this was just pure guess work. I have no idea."

Within a few minutes, the Sentinels are all gone. Rogue appears in front of them all, "Nice work guys…Ah guess you're all looking for an explanation here…"

"More than just think. Sinister kidnapped Mystique a few weeks ago. A few of us tried to track her down and came across one of Sinister's "genetic storage" facilities in Colorado. We found notes talking about Biosentinels. The stuff was encoded, and Sinister destroyed the base before we could take any of it, but based on what we've seen of Sinister in the past, with the Mutant Growth Hormone and that whole Splice mess, anything is possible."
