On the X-Men plane, Storm sits down to talk with Nightcrawler, a young mutant and devout Catholic whom she and Jane Grey had recently tracked down in the midst of a rash of attacks on those with mutant powers.
Nightcrawler: You and Miss Grey are schoolteachers?
Storm: Yes. At a school for people like us, where we can be safe.
Nightcrawler: Safe from what?
Storm: Everyone else.
Nightcrawler: You know, outside of the circus, most people were afraid of me. But I did not hate them: I pitied them. Do you know why? Because most people will never know anything beyond what they see with their own two eyes.
Storm: Well, I gave up on pity a long time ago.
Nightcrawler reaches out to touch Storm’s face.
Nightcrawler: Someone so beautiful should not be so angry.
Storm: Sometimes anger can help you survive.
Nightcrawler: So can faith.
