Chapter 11

“Sinister has manipulated the failsafe Apocalypse placed in me to suit his purposes,” Death said.* “Does he suspect us?”

“No matter, he’s just taking out an insurance policy.”

“I cannot betray him.”

“You won’t have to. I’ll continue as we planned.”

“You don’t have the stomach for it.”

“You’d be surprised at the lengths I’d go to...What I’m willing to sacrifice, for love or for hate.”

“But you do not have my power...the power to defeat him.”

“You haven’t see me when I’m at the top of my game.”

Death’s silence was laced with doubt.

“Do you want to be a slave forever?” the bodiless voice asked.

After several long moments, Death asked: “What does it feel like, to be free?”

“I suppose we’ll find out together.”

(*See X-Men #186, Apocalypse says he’s placed an Achilles Heel in Death’s flesh, should Death try to betray him.)
