Text from scene above:
Narration: London: The secret headquarters of MI-13 (the Department of the British National Intelligence Directorate responsible for enhanced human affairs)...
[Pete Wisdom's uses his mutant super power to hurl his "hot knives" from his hands. The three energy bursts strike their targets: mock-ups of Wolverine, Elektra and Nick Fury. In the wake of "M-Day," in which nearly all of the world's mutants were de-powered by the out-of-control power of the Scarlet Witch, Pete Wisdom tests his powers under controlled circumstances at the agency he works for.]
Constance (MI-13 agent): Love your targets, Peter.
Pete Wisdom: Wish fulfillment, my love. What's your evalutation?
Constance: You'll be pleased to hear, Wisdom, that your "hot knives" remain as formidable a power as ever. That makes you one of the few enhanced agents left.
[Farisa, a woman wearing a Muslim head scarf interrupts their conversation. Farisa is holding a folder with papers in one hand, and a holo-projector in the other hand.]
Farisa: And as a consequence, very much in demand.
Pete Wisdom: What's up, Farisa?
Farisa:Orders. You're to brief the Director, the Prime Minister - and finally Buckingham Palace.
Pete Wisdom: Thank goodness I wore my clean tie.
[Farisa activates the holo projector in her hand and holds it up close to Pete Wisdom. The holo projector displays an image of British national superhero Captain Britain.]
Farisa: And then you're to find and contact Captain Britain. His country needs him, Peter.
