The advent of the nuclear age may have accelerated
the mutation process. Individuals with extraordinary
abilities may already be among us. Thank you very much. MacTaggert, you really think
that some crackpot scientist is going to make me believe in
sparkly dames and vanishing men? You just bought yourself a one-way
ticket back to the typing pool. This meeting is over. Please sit down,
Agent MacTaggert. I didn’t really expect
you to believe me, given that all you could think
about during my presentation was what sort of pie they were
serving in the commissary. It’s apple pecan. I haven’t been entirely honest
with you, love. I’m sorry. You see, one of
the many spectacular things my mutation allows me to do
is that I can read your mind. I’ve seen this before
in a magic show. Are you going to ask us to think of
a number between one and 10 now? No, Agent Stryker.
Although, I could ask you
about your son, William, who you were thinking about,
which is very nice. But I think I’d rather ask you
about the Jupiter missiles America are currently
placing in Turkey. He’s a goddamn spy. You brought a goddamned spy
into this facility! How’s that for a magic trick? Best I’ve ever seen. I want them out of here. And locked down until I can
figure out what to do. My facility is off-site. I’ll take them. I can’t believe this. You’d
think the director of the CIA would have a little
more composure. We should be going
after Shaw right now. But instead, he’s out there
worrying about the wrong mutants. What are we going to do, Levene? Levene? Levene,
what’s wrong with you? Absolutely nothing. I’ve just frozen him for a moment
because I’d like to talk to you. It’s good, isn’t it? I’m as interested in this
Sebastian Shaw as you are. If you still want my help, meet me on
the third floor of the parking garage. I’ve always known that there
were people like you out there. I’ve been the laughing stock of this
agency for years, but I knew it! You are going
to love my facility. That’s going to have to wait.
Why? Agent MacTaggert has
a lead on Sebastian Shaw, and if we don’t move now, apparently,
we’re going to lose him. What?
Not only can he read minds, he can communicate
with them as well. Moira and I have just had
a lovely conversation. Yes, we did. That is incredible! But I cannot take you anywhere else
without permission from upstairs. Like to see one more magic trick?
Okay. Get in the car.
Good idea.
