INT. AREA 51 BASE

Bishop and Cable are inside of Area 51 running down corridors passing rooms…

CABLE
This way!

BISHOP
How do we know she really isn't the threat?!

CABLE
Gut feeling…

BISHOP
Say again?

CABLE
The enemy's not attacking the base, they're hitting our army! They just want the girl…there it is!

Cable punches the code in…the doors open to the holding cells…they run down to hall to where the girl is being kept…then…another door at the end of the hall opens…

JOHNSON
Cable…Bishop…what are you doing down here?!

CABLE
I think the girl can help us stop FREEDOM…

BISHOP
She's coming with us…outta the way!

Cable and Bishop run forward, but Johnson lifts up his hand and a bright, purple beam shoots out shocking Cable and Bishop. Cable fell back unconscious, but Bishop…

BISHOP
You shot the wrong guy…!

Bishop's hands light up and he shoots beams of energy at Johnson, pushing him backgrounds. But someone hit him from behind with a large shield. Bishop was out cold.

We look up from Bishop's body to see Heather Johnson standing over him in a dark uniform. The same energy from Shawn flowing through it. An updated, more powerful version of the FREEDOM uniform.

EXT. AREA 51 BASE - DAY

The FREEDOM forces were finally weakening. More aircraft and military forces from around the world had shown up on U.S. soil.

The X-Men had converged on Juggernaut.

But there was another fight in the distance. S.F. forces dropped Blob and Toad onto the battlefield. The two made their way to the perimeter.

The Blackbird flew overhead firing away at the two of them. Toad leaping out of the way and Blob picked up a piece of an armored vehicle tossing it at the plane. The Blackbird dodged the projectile and hovered near the ground next to armored jeeps.

Jubilee jumps out of the base of the Blackbird and hops into an armored jeep. She heads straight for the Blob, full speed…the Blob turns to see her.

BLOB
Come on…!

Part of the armored roof above her head opens, sliding back. Jubilee puts her feet in the seat, leaps up, the jeep passes under her.

Right before the armored vehicle hits Blob, Jubilee fires huge beams of plasma energy from her hands, striking the armored jeep. It explodes sending the Blob reeling back.

Toad leaps at her from behind, tongue extending, Jubilee quickly turns, fires more energy knocking him outta the sky. Then she begins firing at multiple targets as Beast rides up in an armored vehicle providing cover fire. Jubilee hops in, firing at enemy forces, Beast floors it, the Blackbird flies overhead back to the Area 51 base.

Most of the FREEDOM forces are focused on backing up Juggernaut, keeping the X-Men and other forces away as Juggernaut's hands are buried in a large cannon's foundation. The weight at the top begins to buckle the unstable foundation.

Wolverine is still on his motor-vehicle from the Japanese heading through the FREEDOM forces in front of Juggernaut right to him. He dials controls on the touch screen on his arm, then leaps onto Juggernaut's back, slashing away at the base of his helmet.

Juggernaut grabs him and begins to crush his body.

Rogue flies in carrying Colossus. He runs at Juggernaut knocking him forward, he drops Wolverine.

Rogue begins knocking him in the face. Juggernaut knocks her back.

Colossus hits Juggernaut twice, then an enemy's large energy blast knocks him back.

Archangel swoops in as he's carrying Psylocke and fires sharp projectiles at Juggernaut's helmet.

Psylocke creates a long, blazing psychic knife cutting at Juggernaut's helmet as they fly by. An energy blast knocks them out of the sky.

Juggernaut begins to charge at them, but a sheet of ice forms on the ground making him fall. The helmet is loose. Juggernaut grabs at it, then huge bolts of lightning rain down on him, an optic blast fires at him from Cyclops, and the plasma blasts from Jubilee finally knocks the helmet off.

Juggernaut grabs his helmet and begins to hold it down on his head when Colossus runs up behind him, grabs him around his waist, picks Juggernaut up, and bends backwards slamming Juggernaut on his head. The helmet cracks and falls away.

At last, Juggernaut's mind is unguarded, Jean Grey begins attacking it while behind armored vehicles, Cyclops guarding her along with other soldiers.

Juggernaut grabs his head, screaming…when he can't take it anymore, he falls unconscious.

A new wave of fighters come through, pounding the FREEDOM ground forces with bombs. A new ground team begins to pick up the X-Men from various areas on the battleground and they all head for the main entrance of the Area 51 base.

As they arrive, some of the soldiers begin to cheer all throughout the base, holding weapons in the air. Monitors throughout the base show different battlegrounds around the world as the enemy forces are retreating and being overwhelmed. World War III is coming to an end.

Soldiers and X-men are in the middle of being treated for their wounds.

Suddenly, the lights begin to flicker throughout the base. Everyone on various floors pause…beams of light-purple light dance across the walls sporadically…

GENERAL
(on his com)
Control room, where is this coming from?!

VOICE (O.S.)
Not sure sir…it may be underneath the base!

The base lights begin to break.

GENERAL
(on his com and towards those around him)
Lock and load! Move! Move!

The beams of light intensify, moving along the walls, now the floors.

Jean's eyes are closed, sensing…

JEAN GREY
Whatever it is Scott, it's coming towards us...!

CYCLOPS
Let's go!

The elevator doors leading down to the lower levels blow forward. A dark figure levitates above the ground coming towards them. He begins firing powerful beams of light, destroying vehicles on impact.

The ground forces begin to race back to the open area of the base as they return fire.

He has a force field surrounding him, bullets bounce off, energy blasts are absorbed. He levitates higher in the air, the ground forces below firing up at him, the air forces above him firing down at him. But he did not seem phased by their firepower. Although the air and ground forces have grown dramatically, they cannot get passed his force field. He is picking them apart.

INT. AREA 51 – UNDERGROUND

The huge doors at the end of the hall begin to crumble like paper. Then they fly down the corridor.

Forge looks around the corner, weapon in hand, then runs down the hall towards the main entrance to the holding cells.

As he reaches the entrance, an explosion blows the doors out, the force knocking him on his back.

He leaps up and runs to the entrance returning fire. More beams of purple light fly towards him. He dodges some, but one grazed his arm, spinning him backwards and to the ground.

Heather Johnson stands at the end of the corridor. Another beam of light comes directly for him, but hits a force field before striking Forge. Magneto is in the middle of the corridor, floating above ground.

MAGNETO
We don't have much time…!

He lands on the ground, holding out his arms, blocking the beams of light firing at him. But they come at such intensity his force field is beginning to fail.

MAGNETO
Hurry..!

Another impact hits the force field and Magneto falls back.

Forge fires at Heather. She leaps out of the way. Metal flies from vacant holding cells at Heather. She has to take cover.

Forge runs closer to Sarah's holding cell firing away. Heather returns fire. Forge leaps out of the way.

Magneto fires a beam of magnetism at her knocking her back.

Forge makes it to the console.

Magneto puts up another force field as he races towards Forge.

But Heather's weapon lets out a constant beam of energy that Magneto struggles to hold back…

MAGNETO
It's absorbing…my…!

Forge's hand hurries over the touch-screen looking for a way to unlock the door. The force field began to crack…

MAGNETO
I…!

The beam shattered the force field. Magneto and Forge fly backwards, but the power grid on the holding cell has dropped.

Heather is about to fire on Magneto and Forge again when Sarah Johnson stands in the entrance way of the holding cell, hand extending, lighting up.

Heather looks at her daughter, eyes wide. The lights on Heather's suit and weapons begin to vibrate and power down…the effects shock Heather and she falls to the floor.

SARAH
(races over)
Mom!...Mom!...

She lifts her up onto her knees.

MAGNETO
This is your mother?!

SARAH
Yeah..!

FORGE
You have the ability to shut their powers down?!

SARAH
My dad…I don't know…he's so strong…!

MAGNETO
We must go now…he'll destroy everyone…

SARAH
You're going to kill him?!

MAGNETO
He hasn't left us much of a choice!

Forge runs over to another console, going from screen to screen. The holding cells deactivate, Bishop and Cable exit them.

BISHOP
Magneto…!

MAGNETO
Thank Forge for finding a way to contact me. He can be very convincing…

CABLE
Kid, we need you top-side now…

SARAH
But I…

FORGE
You're the only one who can stop him…

SARAH
I…

BISHOP
Come on!

They run down the corridor towards the elevator. Magneto levitates and follows.

EXT. AREA 51 BASE – NIGHT (STORM'S INFLUENCE)

The ground forces are spread out. Aircrafts are scattered over the desert plane, burning. Another wave of fighters are passing by overhead, firing at Shawn Johnson, still unable to break his field force. He fires beams of light at them. They move evasively, some are struck, exploding in mid-air.

Jean Grey has taken cover behind armored vehicles holding Cyclops in her arms.

Blood falling from scars on his face and body from shrapnel. She cries. Near this place, Gambit holds Rogue close to him…she is unconscious.

The Blackbird is in the distance…crashed into the ground, smoke pouring from the rear of the plane.

Colossus is firing a weapon towards Shawn from behind tanks. Nightcrawler lays on the ground, not moving. Iceman and Psylocke lie on the ground. ShadowCat is holding Archangel on her knees.

QuickSilver is bandaging up wounds on Scarlet Witch as she grimaces in pain.

Jubilee is firing beams of plasma energy at Shawn while a medical team works on Wolverine who lying on the ground, not moving.

EXT. CALIFORNIA COASTLINE - DAY

The Pacific Ocean. A massive navy convoy made up of various countries is almost in position along the coast of California. A Navy General is on the phone.

GENERAL
This has to be done! Satellites are showing us this thing is in a fixed position, if we don't take him out now, who knows where he'll strike next!

CUT TO:

SLADE
General, there are people down there!

CUT TO:

GENERAL
You can't override the President "and" the other U.N. ambassadors! If this last wave of fighters can't take him down, we're gonna hit 'em with everything we've got!

CUT TO:

SLADE
You owe the X-Men time, that's the least you can do…!
(pause)

GENERAL
I have my orders…I'm sorry…

SLADE
General…!

The General hangs up the com-link and patches into another channel.

GENERAL
Make sure we have an accurate lock on the target!

Weapons aboard the naval ships adjust.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
