X2 Revisited... and revisited...
Will anyone back me up in saying that Jason Stryker is actually Mastermind? I've heard it suggested that he is Proteus or Legion or some amalgamation thereof. Here's my proof:
* Mixed eye color
The argument for Legion/Proteus, though, is also good:
It would be easiest to say that Jason Stryker was an amalgamation of Mastermind, Proteus, and Legion, but that's too easy--kind of like saying that Rogue is really Rogue/Jubilee. I'd prefer to believe that Jason Stryker had either Mastermind or Proteus/Legion in mind when he filmed the kid, but the watered down many-mutant is probably closer to the truth. Getting to the bottom of this will probably require that I pull the boxes from the closet and reread my X-Men collection. For now, though, I'm going to sign off: My girlfriend is coming into town and we're going to party like it's your birthday, sip Bacardi like it's your birthday, and we don't give a f*ck cause that's your birthday. (It's no one's birthday but it is a vacation.) I'll be back around on Monday.
