The divergence here starts when a young Ororo in Cairo attempts to pickpocket an honorable thief by the name of Herman Hassel. Recognizing her skills and feeling the need to teach his skills to the next generation, Herman explains the concept of honorable thieving to Ororo, telling her the stories of Boxcar Bertha, Queen of the Hoboes, and Jack Black, who wrote a book on his exploits as a thief. He then says that he is returning to New York, and asks her where she's going. Ororo says she was planning on going to central Africa, but now wants to go to New York too. When Herman asks for her name, she says "Jack Black?", causing Herman to laugh.


The next day, Marie asks Jack if she had found a red gem during that heist, saying that even mutants like the X-Men are searching for it. Jack is dismissive of the X-Men, thinking of super heroes as part of the elite that step on the downtrodden.

Meanwhile, the X-Men search Herman's room while he hid in a trunk. They find the gem and retrieve it, leaving Herman in the trunk until Jack and Marie return. After seeing the terrified Herman relate his story, a furious Jack flies off and attacks the X-Mansion. She fights the X-men, stopping when Professor X arrives, as she refuses to fight a cripple. He apologies for frightening Herman, but says that the gem was needed in a battle for the fate of the Earth.

"Oh yeah?" challenges Jack. "Whose Earth?"

Well, it's nice to see a timeline wherein it's just one person's life who is altered significantly.

"Oh yeah?" challenges Jack. "Whose Earth?"

At a guess, the one you're standing on. The X-Men tend to be more literal than metaphorical when they say things like that

Well if they wont I wont.

*Imagines a version of Tribute that replaces Jack Black with Storm, Kyle with Kitty Pryde, and The Demon with The Shadow King

Storm: Well needless to say, the beast was stunned, WHIP CRACK WENT HIS STUMPY TAIL, and the beast was done. He asked us "*Snort* Be you angels?" And we said "Nay, we are but Mutants, ROCK!"
