...Mightier Than the Sword
A Fan Fiction Archive
[this is an alternate future for the comic book universe, I am a hardcore X-men & Spider-man fan, and have tried to keep references to past comic events to a minimum... In this future, the UN ratified a movement to destroy all nucleare weapons in all countries so as to avoid any threat of nucleare disaster.

Many came. From all over the earth they came, and his ranks swelled.

Bullets deflected off the side of the truck carrying their prisoner, one caught a soldier in the cab, and he screamed in pain. Wolverine and Peter were off the Humvee in a flash, Peter felt metal fibers course through his muscles, which now rippled under metallic skin. Logans claws slid out of the back of his hands, shining in the sunlight. Mutants stood in the roadway, many of them, all wielding machine guns in addition to whatever powers they possessed. Peter and Logan were amidst them like twin whirlwinds of fury, and all the two of them could feel was heat and sweat and noise and blood.....................[(authors note) I selected all the characters available, but this story is about all the X-men, and not all of them were options.]
