Upon seeing the MUA cutscenes for the first time in a very long time, I was inspired to write a little something -- a "What If...?" of sorts. What if there were cutscenes for the EXG stages? Who would speak? Where would they speak? What would they say? So, I'll use this post to write these little dialogues. Hope you guys enjoy them.
NEW YORK CITY BRIEFING
Location: Sanctum Santorum
Nick Fury: "Team, as we've just heard, the Ancient One gave us a vision that the streets of New York City are being attacked."
Spider-Man: "Ah, it'll be nice to be back on familiar turf, web-swinging the streets, fighting bad guys, risking my life, and still being called a 'menace' by the press. I miss it."
Wolverine: "I usually don't mind getting into a scrap, but we better do this fast. We should be going to Latveria to find out what happened to Jeannie and the elf."
Storm: "I agree, Logan, but there are eight million people living in New York. We can't just leave the police and civilians to fend for themselves against the riots."
Elektra: "I recognize the red ninjas seen in the vision. They are an ancient Japanese sect of ninja called the Hand. I know them all too well..."
Wolverine: "Same here, darlin.' In fact, many years ago, Cap and I teamed together to take those psychos down."
Captain America: "I remember that. They were formidable back then, and they're likely just as formidable now. Whatever they are up to, it can't be good."
Thor: "Aye. There also appeared to be some armored gunmen in the vision. Who might those be?"
Spider-Man: "Yeah, those are mercenaries working for the Kingpin. I've tangled with them so much, some of my pictures for the Daily Bugle have their mugs in them, ruining the shots. Anybody know a good photo editor?"
Nick Fury: "If the Kingpin is involved, then this is far more dangerous than expected. Numerous lives are on the line, so time is of the essence, team. Get moving."
ASTRAL PLANE BRIEFING
Nick Fury: "Professor Xavier has informed us that the mysterious portal Black Widow was investigating is an Astral Gate. It will take you into the Astral Plane."
Storm: "I... I don't like this, Colonel. Visiting the realm of the Shadow King is not to be taken lightly. Why are we even going there?"
Nick Fury: "Xavier told me that the Shadow King holds special relics called the Orbs of Darkness. They will augment our special gifts, and we need everything we can to eventually stop Dr. Doom."
Spider-Man: "I don't know, Fury... Shadow King? Orbs of Darkness? All of this sounds like a horror movie, and we're the stupid ones in the movie who investigate and wind up dead."
Wolverine: "We've dealt with the Shadow King before, web-head. And if his relics give us an edge against Doom, I say we take it."
Captain America: "Is Uatu aware of this? He advised to go to the Skrull Homeworld to locate the Muonic Inducer."
Nick Fury: "He is aware and approves of it. He tells us Galactus hasn't started attacking the Skrull planet yet, so saving Lilandra actually bought you some time."
Captain America: "Is there anything else we should know about the Astral Plane?"
Storm: "Normally, only psychics and magic users can appear there, but that Astral Gate can allow non-psychics to enter. It is a realm filled with nightmarish monsters and ghostly creatures -- not unlike Mephisto's Realm from earlier. Also, we must not allow the Shadow King to escape that realm."
Thor: "Then, let us battle onward against this shadow fiend and vanquish our foes along the realm."
Nick Fury: "Good. Retrieve the Orbs without letting the Shadow King escape, and return back here pronto. Good luck."
Will add more over time.
