"Time travel is stupid." Santo declares looking around at the 'future', if they can even believe Colossus's sister about that much. No one in their little group so much as spares him a glance, much to his disappointment. They've been here for over an hour and he still doesn't get why. "Time travel is stupid." He repeats.

This time it works. Magik stops walking and turns to face him. "Just because you are too idiotic to comprehend the complexities of time, space and dimensional variants, that does not make it stupid." She flicks her hair and if it weren't for her eyes narrowing slightly, Rockslide wouldn't have any idea she cared what he thought of the concept. But as it was, he felt very satisfied.

He's about to reply, a smart (and planned) remark on his tongue, but then stops and steps back. Their 'team leader' gives him her most soul-chilling smile at his surrender and continues walking.

She doesn't need to know the only reason he stopped was because Victor was standing behind her making all kinds of 'cut it out' gestures with his arms. His friend smiles gratefully and falls into step with him as they continue walking.

"Time travel is still stupid."
