Wayne Manor Scott returned Clark's handshake as he spoke. "Oh, Mr. Xorn - Kuan-Yin Xorn, he's an instructor at the Xavier Institute. Brilliant man, very kind and polite, if a bit off-putting to some on account of the mask. I wouldn't want to speak for him, but I think he's very comfortable there, very happy. Some...connections of ours were able to get him out of a Chinese prison two years back. They had him hooked up as a power source." Jimmy's brow furrowed. "Wait, how does that eve- you know what, I don't want to know. I'll take your word for it on it being a bad thing." Lois held a similar expression. "A power source? Not to presume, but it's fairly obvious Mr. Xorn isn't exactly, well...your run-of-the-mill homo sapiens." Scott nodded. "You're right. Professor Xavier is the leading voice of mutant rights these days, so of course he lives and works with mutants on a regular basis. Mr. Xorn's mutation is an exceptional one, but it's exactly that, a mutation. At the end of the day, he's very much human, like you or I," Scott allowed a grin before continuing, "it just happens that Xorn shines far brighter than the rest of us; only natural when your head is a star." Before Clark could react, though, a quizzical expression came over his face for an instant. Lois nodded. "Huh...so...that speech..." Scott laughed. "It's a lot to take in, I'll give you that. Speech should be starting any moment now, actually - it should be a good one. Come by the podium after, I'll see to it you get to speak with the professor." And with another smile, Scott Summers made his way to the podium as those assembled began milling about for the best view of things. But Clark had other things on his mind.
