By the way, you might be interested to know your own psych-evaluation came back without a hitch. I thought it was appropriate to mention. -Laura
May 19th, 09:05AM TO: Bureau Director Marston FROM: Dr. Laura Varady, Genomex Psychiatrist RE: Gabriel Ashlocke. Sir, As you can imagine the recent takeover has left many Genomex employees on edge. I for one, however, think that freeing the mutants is exactly the direction we should have taken. Of course I am somewhat disturbed about Mason Eckhart's fate, but feel it is a semi-positive sign that Mr. Ashlocke did not simply put him to death. Psychologically, this act gives me hope for the young man now in charge. Speaking of which, Mr. Ashlocke has requested that I give him the customary psych-evaluation this afternoon and then forward my results to your office. Again I find this encouraging. He phoned me himself and was extremely polite. Not a monster or tyrant at all. I do not believe he is out to destroy mankind in any way, shape or form (as Mason often suggested he would). Gabriel's chief concern appears to have been for the welfare of his fellow New Mutants. Now that they are safe, he seems to want to attend to Genomex business as usual. While most of my co-workers are dreading their scheduled interviews with this unique specimen, I am looking forward to mine. I have no doubt I'll be able to reason with him and learn just how the awakened mind of a four-category New Mutant works after twenty-five years in stasis. It should be enough material to fill a book. Perhaps I'll write one when this is over. Laura
