X-Men test – part 2

More of the ol’ X-Men script sample as sent to me by a long-gone X-ed.

Now’s a good time to mention, I know nothing about these two new characters Dr. Reyes and Marrow. Neither was terribly likable, but I did my best. As far as the former of the two, I had NO clue what the Doc could do. The plot had no details (nor did the Internet at the time) save for something about a forcefield (mentioned in the previous X-post) but that was it. On the second page below, the final script indicates some other power—some kind of empathic ability it seems. But it’s unclear, and I just avoided any reference to her powers in my script sample as a result.

I seem to recall that I was asked to send this as well, so perhaps I was mistaken in my last post…I guess  I was asked to dialogue 5-10 pages or something. It was a while back, it’s hard to recall.

So, with much ado about nothing, here’s more of X-Men 70 by Keith

NOTE:
I’ve color-coded my script, to show, visually, how  I extrapolated info from the plot.
BLUE TYPE = LINES DIRECTLY FROM STORY PLOT
WHITE TYPE = COMPLETELY NEW LINES BASED ON CONCEPTS IN PLOT
RED TYPE = LINES SIMILAR TO THOSE SUGGESTED IN PLOT
