Astonishing X-Men 2 After Xavier: The Age of Apocalypse
This issue was primarily about the attempts of the team to save
innocent humans from culling at the hands of Holocaust, the 'son' of
Apocalypse. However, there was a scene where we learned a lot
about Blink, and her relationship with someone who was only barely on her side
in our world...Sabretooth! He calls her up to a hill
overlooking Chicago, and here is the result...
Blink:Please. Please PLEASE please don't ask me. You want me to
teleport you to him, don't you? You're asking me to help you commit
...You're the one who rescued me from Abyss [a horseman of Apocalypse] all
those years ago.
...Sabretooth:"Stupid is not fighting. It's givin' up. Clarice, I
need ya to send me to Holocaust, so I can take one last poke at 'im. Then
I need ONE other thing.
Sabretooth:After he takes me out--and make no mistake, he will--I need
ya t'kick his b--- all the way back to h---...and tell 'im 'THAT was for
Victor Creed!' Can ya do that for me, pup?
[Before Blink can send him off, however, Rogue tries to intervene.
Clarice uses her power as she did in our world to knock out Rogue.]
Sabretooth:Ya displaced her for what--a fraction of a second?
Blink:She'll be fine in a minute. You'll... be GONE by
Blink:Thank me, Mr. Creed...by coming home.
It appears that Sabretooth dies in his fight with Holocaust, but both
of them actually survive to begin another chapter...
