THE GALLOWAY RESIDENCE WAS MORE THAN JAMES EXPECTED WHEN HIM AND NATASHA STEPPED OUT OF THE S.H.I.E.L.D TRUCK. The Stark buried his hands in his pockets as he stared up at the two-story suburban home, which would hold a family of mutants. James never believed that he would find himself in front of the home of a mutant; but then again, he never thought he'd meet one. Sure, his life was extremely complicated, but he never thought he'd meet mutants. There were stories about them that he had learned about from the news, so he could only hope that they weren't horrible.

Natasha glanced at the man as the two of them stood outside before she nudged him. He glanced at her and nodded his head slightly as the two of them began to approach the home. The Russian was the one to knock on the door, which was answered by the woman that they saw from the film. The woman that stood on the opposite side of the threshold had short dark brown hair and hazel eyes. She had a small scar above the tail of her eyebrow, but other than that, James couldn't deny that she was a beautiful woman.

"Hi, who are you?" The woman, that James and Natasha both knew as Lily Heaven-Galloway, the invisible woman. She rested her hands on the door as she glanced between the two S.H.I.E.L.D agents, wondering who the two people were on her front porch.

James took out his S.H.I.E.L.D badge and showed it to the woman, who reached for the badge and examined it as he introduced them, "I'm James Stark and this is Natasha Romanoff. We're agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, and we're here to ask you and your family a few questions."

The woman glimpsed at the badge in her hand, before back up at the two in front of her, "A Stark," She stated as she handed the badge back to him. "Never thought I'd meet another one of you. I'm Lily." She introduced herself, even though they already knew who she was. She stepped back and motioned for them to enter the home. "Please, come in."

"Thank you," James said to her and the woman gave him a kind smile and he and Natasha entered the home.

The house was a rather modern take on a Victorian era and it had just about everything a family needed. Lily led the two of them into a large kitchen, where two members of the family were already seated. James's eyes glanced over the father, Derek, and the younger daughter, Kaia. They both glanced up at the two S.H.I.E.L.D agents before the two of them took a seat at the table.

"Fawn! Where are you?" Lily called out for the oldest daughter, and it wasn't too long before both the shapeshifter and a blonde haired woman entered. The file on the blonde woman was a little outdated, but Natasha and James recognized her as the Aunt, and sister of Lily, Serena Heavens. Once everyone was seated at the table, Lily motioned to the two of them. "These are agents James Stark and Natasha Romanoff of S.H.I.E.L.D, and they're here to ask us a few questions."

"Or they're here to lock us up like they do with all of the other mutants," Kaia scoffed as she slouched in her seat, arms folded over her chest. "Seeing as Professor X isn't taking in recruits for his team of misfits."
