"I didn't realize that there were people still not in control of their powers." Mark said shakily. At the time, he'd been so desensitized both by what he'd seen in Alphabet City and what he'd seen on the news reports about Mutants that he hadn't reacted initially, but now, realizing a young girl had created this, and could create things like this anytime and anyplace--scared him? "I mean---I know that control has to be learnt and that's why you make the kids practice, but for someone with a power like that just to--test it without telling anyone or going somewhere it's secure." He sat down on the grass and squinted up at Worthington in the dim light.

"What does she do? I mean what's her power? Creating nightmares or something?" He remembered something from Sentor Kelly and Dr. Grey's debate a few years back.

"The wrong person behind the wheel of a car can be dangerous."
"We do listens people to drive."
"Yes, but not to live."

It had raised a lot of issues at the time. Powers, like being behind a wheel all routed from the same basic principal. A person, in control of something bigger than themselves. And while anyone could drive a car, there was a test to make sure you were responsible enough to handle it. Shouldn't control of a mutant power be tested in the same way?
