As Atlas Crumbled -RT November 16

 

We are all born company men in a country where the government is scared of its own people.
The company educates you.
The government helps you to find your place.
The company protects you from the lies of the rest of the world.
The government determines the line between human and Mutant.
The company regulates the Mutants.
The government ‘deals’ with the Mutants.
The company keeps you safe.
The company will always keep you safe…
So what happens when one of the pillars that the American government rests on shrugs the burden of compliance from its shoulders and lifts the ideals of freedom, equality, and hope instead?

“Humanity isn’t evolving into something new, it is returning to something more Ancient than we remember being.” Carson Beckett – ICMSE 2004

In the mid 20th century the world stood still and watched as one man destroyed an entire army without killing a single man.
He was the first known mutant.
Parts of the world heralded him and his kind as the future of humanity, some parts tried to wipe them out and some enslaved them. But this story isn’t about that war but what came decades later…
