"Aw, c'mon!" Peter Parker erupted as he threw his spectacular and amazing hands in the air.

"Yer lucky I'm even playin', kid," Wolverine replied as he took a long drag of his cigar.

Doctor Strange sighed from the next room over, muttering something to himself just before the cigar vanished from Wolverine's mouth.

"What the fu—"

"It's in limbo now, Logan. It will go to much better use there than in my Sanctorium," the Doctor replied as he left sight of any of the other New Avengers.

"Just pick dare."

"You just want him to cut something off," Jessica Drew – Spider-Woman – chimed in with protest. "Again."

"Prove it."

"Fine," Wolverine submitted. "Dare."

"Cut your pointer finger off," Spider-Man quipped almost immediately.

"Proven," Drew rolled her maskless eyes as she and Wolverine exchanged glances. "Aw… don't do it!"

"Why don't you join in?" Jessica Jones asked over her shoulder from a nearby room, cradling her daughter as she looked to the father of her child.

Luke Cage looked over his own shoulder from the computer desk, "I can think of about a thousand better things t'do. That's why."

"Keep googling yourself and someone's going to trace it," she quipped.

"I am not googling myself," he replied as she rolled her eyes and went to put their daughter to bed.

Cage quickly closed the website with pictures of he and his former partner, standing to go join the game.

"You're a child."

"I am not."

"I don't know how Mary Jane puts up with you," Spider-Woman replied, picking up a magazine and flipping through its contents.

"Alright, Drew," Logan grinned. "Truth 'er dare."


"Now who's being childish?"

"For not wanting to play a children's game?"

Peter Parker perked up. "Well… yeah."

She smirked. "Dare."

"I dare you to quit playing this game and go find some ass to kick with me," Luke Cage grinned as he took a seat next to the three.

"Sounds nice," Drew sighed.

"You're such a bad mothah," Parker rolled his eyes at Cage. "Alright, Jess… I dare you to cut something off."

Wolverine smiled and Spider-Man felt like he'd won some sort of small victory. Spider-Woman simply ignored him, returning to her magazine. "Did you hear about Brad and –"

"Fine," Spider-Man interrupted her, "we won't play. I just thought it'd help pass the time."

Logan pulled out a pack of cigarettes and lit one up. "It wasn't so bad."
