Logan Cale: Max, the thing about freedom... it's never free.
Joshua: Alec, I'm so glad to see you.
Joshua: This is Gem. She's having a baby.
Alec/X5-494: Oh, so naturally you thought of stopping by Jam Pony in broad daylight.
Normal: My golden boy's a mutant.
Alec/X5-494: We prefer "genetically empowered."
Normal: Take me Jesus.
Mole: Careful what you wish for.
Max Guevara: Whats that?
Alec/X5-494: It's a hole in my body made by a bullet.
Max Guevara: Been there,done that. Check the news.
Max Guevara: They screwed this whole thing upon purpose to escalate the situation.
Alec/X5-494: Yeah, well it worked.
Max Guevara: Where are we gonna go? I can't stop anyone from leaving, but I'm through running and hiding and being afraid. I'm not going to live my life like that any more. Aren't you tired of living in darkness? Don't you want to feel the sun on your face? To have a place of your own where you can walk down the street without being afraid. They made us, and they trained us to be soldiers, to defend this country. It's time they face us and take responsibility, instead of trying to sweep us away like garbage. We were made in America and we're not going anywhere. So they call us 'freaks'. Who cares? Today I'm proud to be a freak. And today we're gonna make a stand right here. Who's with me?"
Female Newscaster: Terminal City is a twenty block no-mans land here in the heart of Seattle, closed, ten years ago, after a massive toxic spill. It is without power or water. And it is a felony to go beyond this security fence right behind me. Terminal City is far from empty. It is home to rats, stray cats, a few homeless humans and according to many reports an ever increasing number of trans-genics. Some of them far from human. Local citizens have begun setting up flaming x-es, like this one, outside the fence as a warning to the trans-genics inside.
Max Guevara: Go for Max.
Joshua: Little fella. Little fella, everything's gone sideways. It's-It's FUBAR. There be people screaming. And-And Gem is trying to keep her legs crossed so the baby won't pop out.
