Charles: "Did you have fun on your date…"
She smiles: "I did...What do you think of me marrying Kurt…"
Charles smiles, "Really mother…I like him and Cain…I always wanted a brother…" There is a loud screeching sound in Charles' head and he hears voices.
Sharon: "My poor son are you having headaches again?"

Sharon: "Cain! What are you doing…"
Charles: "Nothing momma we are just playing…"
Sharon: "I asked you a question…"

Cain: "Ha! You can't afford it anymore…"

Three months later Sharon has fallen ill and Kurt has the run of the house. "I want to me see my mother!" Charles says.
Kurt: "Your mother is fine…" Charles hears his thoughts: ("Soon all that money will be mine... and I will be back in business…") "I assure you she is getting the best care…"
Charles: "You're a lier… You just want my mother's money…I heard you say it in your head…"
Kurt grabs Charles and drags him to his room, "I was just thinking that…How in the hell did you…You little freak you're a mutant…If you repeat that non-sense I will report you to the MRD. (Mutant Registration Department…)"
The butler: "May I help you?" He asks answering the door.
Man at the Door: "Howard Stark to see Mrs. Xavier…"
Butler: "Go around the back sir…If he sees you…I will let you in the secret passage…"
Kurt: "Neel…who was that?"
Butler: "Someone trying to sell insurance sir…"

Howard: "And you as well…"
Sharon: "And what are you up too…"
Howard: "The Germans have invaded Poland and I am off to Manhattan top secret government stuff…I stopped by to see you… Your husband was a good friend and I would hate to see his wife get hurt by a Con artist…"
Sharon coughs, "What are you talking about?"
Howard sighs, "You need to read this…I pulled some strings to get it…" As she reads he speaks, "Your husband, Kurt, and me were working on a project called supersoldier…Your new husband was selling secrets to the Russians…All his assets were seized by the government…The department of justice couldn't prove any of it, so they bankrupted him…He is after your fortune…I paid Neel to make sure that bastard wasn't trying to poison you…" She started crying, "I'm sorry Sharon…"
She dried her eyes, "I need you to get my lawyer I want to rewrite my will…"

He clears his throat, "I Sharon Xavier Marko of sound mind and body do hereby leave to my beloved son Charles Francis Xavier…Xavier Manor, my entire fortune of one point five billion dollars and all assets…To my beloved husband Kurt Marko and his son Cain Marko…I leave these letters to be read in private… I leave to the children's hospital the sum of one million dollars…Farewell my beloved son…" The lawyer hands them both their letters, but Cain tares the letter up.
Cain: "I don't want that shit…"
Kurt: "Cain control yourself that was your step-mother…" He looks at the lawyer, "What is in here?"

As he balls the letter up both Charles and the Lawyer are standing behind him. "I know what the letter said… Don't try to contest it… You will loose Mrs. Xavier and I have seen to that!"
Charles looks at the lawyer: "Leave me alone with him…"
Kurt waits until the door is closed, "I know all about you freak…" Cain is watching, "So if you give me a couple million, I'll keep my mouth shut about you being a mutant…"
Charles smirks: "You won't be saying a word…"
Kurt grabs the side of his head and falls to his knees, "What the hell are you doing to me?"
He hears Charles inside his head, ("You will forget that I am a mutant… You will leave this house and never return… You will not contest the will… and you will never do this to another woman again now leave…") With a blank stare on his face Kurt leaves.
Cain rushes in, "I saw what you did to my father…and I swear I will find a way to get back at you…"
Charles: "All I have ever been to you was a brother, but all you and your wretched father saw was dollar signs…"
Cain: "I will see you again…"
As Cain leaves the house his father calls out to him but he ignores him they argue and Cain punches his father in the face declaring he is going to the army and never coming back. As Kurt stands there watching his son leave he is grabbed from behind by German agents and taken to Germany.
Schmidt is sitting in his office when Eric is brought in, he addresses him in German: "Ah… Eric welcome come in please…I apologize these Germans they are so ignorant…The perfect race indeed…blue eyes, blonde hair…Ha…true perfection lies within the human cells…evolution…Would like some chocolate?"
Eric: "Nein heir doctor… I would like to see my mother…"
Schmidt sighs: "Evolution is the key…It has made you and me the people we are yes?" Eric hunches his shoulders, as Schmidt places a coin on the table, "This is not a gate, its just a small coin…Will you please move it…"
Eric points his hands at the coin in an attempt to move it, but nothing happens. "Sorry heir doctor, but I cannot…"
Schmidt: "Oh well…" He rings the bell, "…The Germans have their methods for results…" He says as two soldiers bring Eric's mother into the room. Schmidt opens the drawer on his desk and removes a gun. "I will count to three and if you don't move the coin by then I will shoot her…One…" Eric looks at his mother and tries to move the coin, but nothing happens. She tells him everything will be alright, "Two…" The coin remains idle and Eric takes another look at his mother. "Three…" Schmidt pulls the trigger.
Eric looks at his mother's now lifeless body, "Nien…" He whispers, the bell on the desk balls up like a peace of paper. "NIEN!" Eric screams pointing his hands at the cabinet behind the desk. It crumbles under the weight of some unseen power, and he turns on the soldiers who don't know what to do, they scream as their helmets are crushed over their heads. The next room behind the glass wall is torn to pieces by Eric's power. All the metal objects are bent and twisted as they are levitated in the air. "NIEN!" Eric screams the whole time.
"Well done my little Magneto…We unlock your power with anger…You and I shall do great things together…"
