When she tried to defend herself about Jean and Charles, he started to laugh. It started as a light giggle deep inside, which he tried to hold back. Instead, it grew larger and larger, until he right out laughed in her face. "You did everything you could? You are confused, Ororo. I'm not mad because they are gone. I am angry because no one had the guts to kill Jean when they had the chance."
Once Scott realized the true danger with Jean, he would have killed her. No questions. But before he got the chance, she removed him from the equation. He blamed Storm and Charles for not stopping it before it got to the point it did. "It doesn't matter. Without Charles, this school won't last another year. Especially with the bang up job you have been doing."
"I don't care what reason you thought there was for letting Erik into the school. It was a poor decision. And as far as this Dr. Essex? Really, we just let anybody in here now? You don't seem to know anything about the man, and why the kids are gone as well." He laughed a little louder than before, but continued. It wasn't funny, but he couldn't believe she was so naive. "If you think bumping up the security is gonna keep everyone safe, you are an idiot. Our enemies can blow a hole the size of Texas in our walls."
"As far as the kid...I still think it is stupid to send a young girl out to fight for you. What have the X-men been doing? Are you reduced to one man teams of a girl who may or may not be a clone of Logan? Really, Storm, you are running this place like a mutant day care." He was leaning more towards the idea of Charles keeping them in check. Storm was very capable before Charles died. Now she seemed to be throwing ideas at the wall and seeing what would stick.
"Logan is so pissed off at you, he is living alone with Rogue. I went to talk with him. He refused to come back unless you weren't in control." He moved closer to his old friend. The laughter was gone now, as he glared down at her. "But that was always your problem, wasn't it? You can't stand to think you aren't in control of everything. That's why you took over, that's why you let Magneto live here, and that's why you are sending a little kid out to fight for you. Go ahead and try to tell me I am wrong."
