The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all of the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "save us!"...
...and I will look down and whisper "no".
Political killings? No, someone is killing costumed mutants, and Magneto wants to know who.
There's something missing in Erik Lehnsherr's life, in this monochromatic hell he lives in, and it's there, just beyond his reach, a dark shadow turning it's back against him, and although the simple memory continues to elude him Erik finds the man...beautiful.
Just that azure gaze is enough to remind him of his mistakes, the innocent people that paid for his crimes, and he falls back into his black and white world.
