EXT. AREA 51 BASE - NIGHT

Stragglers from the previous wave attack Shawn sporadically, still with no effect.

A new wave of fighters is on the horizon and begin firing upgraded weapons from the Japanese at him. The lasers bounce around his shield and he returns fire knocking planes out of the sky.

Suddenly, his force field weakens, lasers begin to break through, striking him, he falls to the ground…

JOHNSON
Sarah.

Sarah stands behind him, a small force field surrounding her. Shots from the air force come down in waves. Shawn charges his energy which heals his wounds slowly, but surely. He raises his force field again as he glares at Sarah.

SARAH
Dad, you have to stop!

JOHNSON
You don't run things here young lady!

SARAH
Why are you doing this?!

JOHNSON
Don't you see Sarah?! Look at us! We have the power to control this world for generations to come!

SARAH
I don't want control…!

JOHNSON
(walks toward her)
I can teach you how to use your power Sarah…you're already stronger than I was at your age…

Sarah backs away as he gets closer.

SARAH
(holds out her hand)
Stop!

JOHNSON
(pauses)
Are you going to let them kill me?

SARAH
No. But if you're going to destroy the world…
(pause)
I don't want to be here to see you do it.

Sarah drops her force field as aircraft fire beams down at them. She is hit multiple times and falls back to the desert ground.

JOHNSON
(screams)
NNNNOOOO! Sarah!

Shawn runs to her and sends charges of energy to her body, but Sarah is rejecting it.

JOHNSON
What are you doing?!
(pause)
Heal yourself! Sarah!

Heather is seen running towards the two of them and falls at Sarah's head…

JOHNSON
She's not letting me heal her!

HEATHER
Sarah, sweetie…don't…do this..!

Sarah's eyes barely open.

SARAH
(she looks at her dad)
Promise me…

JOHNSON
What?!

SARAH
You'll stop fighting…

JOHNSON
Use your powers to…!

SARAH
Promise me!

Shawn looks at Heather, who's in tears.

HEATHER
Shawn…!

SARAH
I love you…

Sarah's head leans back and her eyes close.

Shawn's head looks towards the sky as he screams, blasting a huge bolt of energy through his eyes into the sky.

The ground forces have surrounded them…blue smoke from flares lifting into the sky. The air force have stopped firing without Shawn, Heather, and Sarah noticing…time seems to go in slow motion.

From his head first, his altered form fades away on down to his feet. He is regular Shawn Johnson again…holding his daughter, his wife holding both of them.

The medical team has come from the inside of the base. While the military teams take Heather and Shawn, putting special cuffs on them, the medical team moves in and places Sarah on a gurney.

JOHNSON
Sarah! Use your power! Use your power!

INT. AREA 51 BASE – INTERIOR

The medical team rushes Sarah to the elevator. Along the way, medical personnel try to attach machines to her, but they all blow out from charges released by Sarah's body.

NURSE
What else do we have?!

SOLDIER
Take her down to the 20th floor!

Once there, a staff was in place next to a machine with glowing lime green light flowing inside. They hooked wires to her and her body began to absorb the energy rather quickly.

The lights inside the room flickered on and off until the machine was drained. Everyone stood by…waiting…but Sarah lay still. Silence. Sarah's body jumped just a bit as a beam of light-purple light zipped across her face. Then more beams of light until it began to bounce across the room and the medical team had to leave the room.

INT. AREA 51 BASE - UNDERGROUND

Shawn and Heather Johnson find themselves in the same holding cell their daughter was in earlier. Shawn is still bound, hands behind his back. He and Heather sit on a long, white bench, extending from the wall…

HEATHER
I envied you Shawn…I wanted power too. But I'm not a mutant. I don't have any special abilities…! You gave me something…as close as I'll ever get…

JOHNSON
Nothing else mattered Heather. Nothing! I saw…what I dreamed about…to be the most powerful…

Shawn pressed his lips together…Heather slid next to him putting her arm around him.

JOHNSON
But Sarah…

INT. AREA 51 BASE

We move through the hall to see soldiers being treated. Some even flashed a smile or two.

Further down the hall in another large room the X-Men are together again. Professor Xavier lays in a bed, hooked to machines, giving a faint smile to Storm, who is bandaged up, as doctors walk away.

Cable is being bandaged up by a military doctor, while Bishop stands nearby looking at new gadgets presented by Forge.

Jean Grey lays in a bed smiling and crying. Cyclops, though scarred, embraces her as they look at a monitor she is hooked to. Beast points out stats on the screen as the baby can be seen alive and well within her womb.

Psylocke stands next to Archangel smiling as she bandaged his arm. She is already bandaged up.

Iceman sits on a bench, holding his head as ShadowCat lays on his outside shoulder.

Colossus stands over Nightcrawler, who is hooked to machines. Nightcrawler sits up in bed. He and Colossus embraced hands.

Rogue and Gambit, like normal, sit together. Gambit's arm around her shoulder, her arm around his waist. Faint smiles, but teary-eyed.

Jubilee has begun helping Wolverine take bandage wraps "off" his arms. Underneath, he is perfectly healed.

Shawn and Heather are smiling and crying, her arms around him. They look at a projection screen on the cell door to see Sarah's face smiling cheerfully. She quickly blows them a kiss and military personnel escort her down the hall.

EXT. AREA 51 BASE - DAWN

We ascend through the remaining floors of Area 51 and appear outside to a sunrise, mountains in the distance.

Magneto, QuickSilver, and Scarlet Witch are embraced together in a "group hug". Magneto begins to back away and levitate into the air. Above the horizon, the huge form of Avalon is seen.

EXT. OUTER SPACE

We quickly ascend higher and higher into the sky until we see above the Earth. No missiles flying or flashing of light this time.

CHARLES XAVIER (O.S.)
The world has survived yet another war. Because the abilities of the human and mutant race were conquered by something even more powerful…
(pause)
Love.

We see the astronauts of the space shuttle as Xavier speaks, cheering and hugging inside. Then we turn to look out over the Earth into space towards the sun.

FADE OUT.

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