Thunderbird: I was wrong, I should have saved him. I'm starting to think the X-Men maybe made a mistake choosing me to be part of the underground
Dreamer: Johnny, you can't think that way! I know you want to live to who your father was, but you are doing all you can.

Dreamer: You were chosen for a reason. The X-Men said a war is coming!
Thunderbird: They didn't say we'd win.
