PANEL 1

Through advanced binoculars that Sage uses, an abandoned factory building is shown. It's night time.


SAGE (not shown)

COMPUTER, RECORD.


SAGE (not shown)

IT'S NIGHT TIME, AND IT SEEMS THAT THE GIRL AND HER ROBOT HAVE FOUND WHAT SEEMS TO BE AN ABANDONED FACTORY OF SOME SORTS TO REST FOR THE NIGHT.


PANEL 2

The advanced binoculars are now facing somewhere away from the factory and to Tess-1 who's outside walking around.


SAGE (not shown)

THE ROBOT, WHO'S ROAMING AROUND OUTSIDE THE BUILDING, IS NO DOUBT FOLLOWING IT'S PROGRAMMING TO PROTECT THE GIRL BY MAKING SURE THE AREA IS SECURE.


PANEL 3

The advanced binoculars are quickly moved to another area where some type of energy is shown, and inside the energy are two human-like forms. The advanced binoculars make a beeping sound because it detected the energy.


SAGE (not shown)

NOTHING ELSE SEEMS TO BE HAPPENING TO.... NO, WAIT. SOMETHING JUST CAME UP ELSEWHERE.


SAGE (not shown)

SOME SORT OF ENERGY HAS APPEARED AND THE READINGS I'M GETTING SEEMS TO INDICATE THAT THE SAID ENERGY IS STARTING TO BECOME MATTER WHICH WOULD REPLY THAT THIS IS SOME FORM OF TELEPORTATION.


PANEL 4

Same as panel 3, but the energy is gone and Motormouth and Killpower are shown.


SAGE (not shown)

TWO FIGURES ARE SHOWN, HUMAN-LOOKING, WHILE THE RED-HEADED MALE SEEMS TO HAVE SOMEWHAT ABNORMAL MUSCLE MASS. BIO-READING SEEMS TO SHOW THE MALE IS GENETICALLY ALTERED, BUT NOT A MUTANT, WHILE THE FEMALE SEEMS TO....


PANEL 5

The advance binoculars once again focuses on Tess-1 who walking towards Motormouth and Killpower's direction.


SAGE (not shown)

OH' DEAR.

PANEL 1

Motormouth seems very upset with Killpower. The factory building is nearby.


MOTORMOUTH (angry)

WHAT THE BLOODY @#$% WERE YEH THINKING?!


MOTORMOUTH (angry)

THOSE WERE @#$% VAMPIRES THAT YEH WERE MESSING WITH AND YEH DON'T @#$% DOG'S BREAKFAST WITH @#$% WALKING CORPSES!


KILLPOWER (somewhat child-like and nervous)

BUT MISTER WISDOM AND CAPTAIN BRITAIN ASKED ME TO DO IT IN PERSON. CAPTAIN BRITAIN!


PANEL 2

Motormouth turns around and points at the nervous Killpower.


MOTORMOUTH (angry)

LISTEN! WE @#$% AGREED TO STAY OUT OF OTHER @#$% “SUPER-HEROES'” MESSES TO KEEP OUT OF @#$% BARNEY RUBBLE THAT WE DON'T @#$% WANT, ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY HAD THAT @#$% REGISTRATION GOING ON WHICH IS WHY WE LEFT THE @#$% PLANET FOR A @#$% WHILST AFTER @#$% EXPOSING YOURSELF DURING THAT @#$% VAMPIRE FIGHT!


KILLPOWER (somewhat child-like and nervous)

WOW, YOU'RE REALLY GETTING INTO THE POTTY MOUTH THING MORE THEN USUAL.


KILLPOWER (somewhat child-like and nervous)

NOT TO MENTION THAT ALL THAT HAPPENED A MOUTH OR SO AGO.


PANEL 3

Motormouth looks around to see where she is.


MOTORMOUTH (angry and suspicious)

WHERE ARE WE?


KILLPOWER (somewhat child-like)

YOU KNOW, YOU SHOULDN'T REALLY TELEPORT WHEN YOU'RE ANGRY.


KILLPOWER (somewhat child-like)

IT MAKES IT HARD TO FOCUS WHEN STEERING.


PANEL 4

Motormouth is the main focus as she shows a facial expression of getting spooked.


PANEL 5

In front of Motormouth is Tess-1 who's doing nothing but looking down at her.


PAGE 3


PANEL 1

Motormouth does a sonic scream!

PANEL 1

Elsewhere, a mountain is shown.


THOMAS GRAVETON (not shown and word box)

HAVE YOU BEEN ABLE PROCURE THE INFORMATION BASED ON THAT ROBOT THE MEN FACED AT THAT JUNK YARD, MISS SANDMON?


MARY SANDMON (not shown and word box)

THANKFULLY FOR THE INTERNET AND PEOPLE WITH NOTHING BETTER TO DO, AS WELL AS A CERTAIN 1940'S PROJECT BEING DECLASSIFIED FOR A LONG TIME NOW, I WAS ABLE TO FIND A GOOD AMOUNT OF INFORMATION WITH MINIMAL EFFORT, INCLUDING A NAME PROFESSOR SCHUMANN.


PANEL 2

At the command center of the Forward Strike base, Thomas and Mary are having a discussion. View screens are showing old photos of the Tess-1 project which Mary has the remote for.


MARY SANDMON (serious)

I BELIEVE, SIR, THAT THE REASON THE ROBOT WAS FAMILIAR TO YOU IS BECAUSE OF THE NAME ON IT'S CHEST.


MARY SANDMON (serious)

DO YOU RECALL THAT INCIDENT WHERE A COSTUMED PERSON WITH A ROBOT WAS TRYING TO MAKE THE INSANE ATTEMPT TO DISMANTLE ALL THE NUKES IN THE WORLD?


THOMAS GRAVETON (serious)

ACTUALLY, IT'S ALL COMING BACK TO ME, IN FACT, I ONCE READ A NEWSPAPER ARTICLE ABOUT IT DEALING WITH CAPTAIN AMERICA AND ANOTHER COSTUMED HERO WHO TURNED OUT TO BE ONE OF THE X-MEN.


THOMAS GRAVETON (serious)

BUT HOW DOES A ROBOT MADE OUT OF 1940'S TECHNOLOGY BE SO AMAZINGLY POWERFUL?


MARY SANDMON (serious)

I BELIEVE MUTANT POWER IS INVOLVED, SIR.


PANEL 3

Mary uses the remote to change one of the view screens to show Jake in his holding cell.


MARY SANDMON (serious)

THE EXAMINATION RESULTS WE RECEIVED FROM THIS MAN WE APPREHENDED TURNED OUT TO BE ONE OF THE REMAINING MUTANTS.


MARY SANDMON (serious)

WE'RE NOT REALLY SURE WHAT HIS MUTANT POWER IS, BUT IT MAY PERHAPS BE LINKED TO THE UNUSUALNESS OF THE ROBOT.


MARY SANDMON (serious)

HE'S NOT VERY TALKATIVE UNLESS IT'S “COLORFUL” WORDS.


PANEL 4

Another view of Mary and Thomas.


THOMAS GRAVETON (serious)

IT'S INTERESTING THAT YOU BROUGHT THIS MAN UP, BECAUSE I FOUND SOMETHING INTERESTING WHILE READING THE REPORTS AND VIEWING THE VIDEO FEED FROM THE SOLDIERS.


PANEL 5

Mary's hand is shown handing the remote to Thomas' hand.


THOMAS GRAVETON (hand only shown)

THE DISCOVERY MAY PERHAPS GIVE US SOME ANSWERS THAT WILL PROVE TO BE USEFUL.


PAGE 5


PANEL 1

One of the view screens shows a still of Atelidae when she was at the junk yard and was about to be shot by the soldiers. It's through the soldiers' point of view.


MARY SANDMON (serious)

THE DEVIANT CHILD THAT WAS FOUND AT THAT JUNK YARD?


THOMAS GRAVETON (serious)

YES, NOW I WILL SHOW YOU ONE OF THE PRISONERS WE HAVE PROCURE IN ANOTHER MISSION.


PANEL 2

Another view screen, next to the Atelidae one, is showing a live feed of Zira who seems to be in an interrogation room where she is sitting and waiting. She seems unaffected by all this emotionally.


MARY SANDMON (serious)

YES, I DO NOTICE A RESEMBLANCE BETWEEN THE TWO, SIR, THOUGH I HEARD SOMETHING LIKE THAT IS RARE FOR THEIR KIND BECAUSE OF THE STATE OF THEIR GENE POOL.


MARY SANDMON (serious)

DO YOU BELIEVE THERE'S A CONNECTION BETWEEN THE TWO, A FAMILY RELATION PERHAPS?


THOMAS GRAVETON (serious)

THERE'S AN EXPERIMENT I WANT TO TRY TO FIND THAT OUT, AS WELL AS WHAT THAT MAN HAS TO DO WITH IT.


PANEL 3

Elsewhere in the base, a hallway, where two soldier are leading the hand-cuffed Jake somewhere.


JAKE (sarcasm)

SO, TIME FOR MY 2:00 APPOINTMENT AT THE TORTURE CHAMBER?


SOLDIER #1 (annoyed)

DON'T GIVE US ANY IDEAS.


SOLDIER #2 (annoyed)

JUST BE THANKFUL THAT THIS WILL BE PRETTY PAINLESS.


MARY SANDMON (not shown and word box)

AN EXPERIMENT, SIR?


THOMAS GRAVETON (not shown and word box)

ONE WHERE WE PUT THESE TWO IN THE SAME ROOM AND VIEW THEIR REACTIONS, LISTEN TO THEIR WORDS, AND HOPE IT WILL ALLOW US TO LEARN SOMETHING NEW WHEN IT COMES TO UNDERSTANDING THE SITUATION.

One of the view screens shows Jake entering the room that Zira is in.

PANEL 4

Back to Thomas and Mary. Banging noises from the door is heard through the speaker.


MARY SANDMON (serious and awkward)

COMPUTER READOUT BOX

IMPROVISE.

WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!


PANEL 2

Back at the Forward Strike base, Thomas and Mary are still looking at the view screen that is showing Jack and Zira. The two prisoners are doing nothing but sitting at each end of the table looking at each other. Both arms are crossed for the two, while Jake looks annoyed, while Zira acts indifferent to the situation.


MARY SANDMON (serious)

THEY'RE NOT EXACTLY DOING ANYTHING, SIR.


THOMAS GRAVETON (serious)

GIVE IT TIME, MISS SANDMON, SINCE IT'S OBVIOUS THAT THEY DON'T EXACTLY LIKE EACH OTHER WHICH MEANS ONE WILL SOON BREAK.


MARY SANDMON (serious)

MY BEST GUESS WOULD BE THE MAN.


THOMAS GRAVETON (serious)

AGREED. IT'S OBVIOUS THAT NONE OF THIS IS EFFECTING THE DEVIANT FEMALE AT ALL.


PANEL 3

In the room where Jake and Zira are in.


JAKE (annoyed and snooty)

SO WHY ARE YOU HERE?


ZIRA (indifferent)

FROM WHAT THEY BEEN TELLING US, THEY'RE TRYING TO STOP US FROM “TAKING OVER THE WORLD AND WIPING OUT HUMANITY”.


ZIRA (indifferent)

THEY HAVE BEEN ASKING US WHAT OUR PLANS WERE AND THE LOCATIONS OF OUR MILITARY BASES, BUT SADLY WE NEVER TOOK THE TIME TO MAKE THEM, WHICH REALLY IS SAD BECAUSE THEY OBVIOUSLY PUT A LOT OF EFFORT IN CREATING THIS ORGANIZATION.


PANEL 4

Another view of Jake and Zira.


JAKE (annoyed)

NONE OF THIS WAS IN THAT MESSAGE OF YOURS THAT I RECEIVED.


ZIRA (indifferent)

I CANNOT WRITE ABOUT THINGS THAT I DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT AT THE TIME.


ZIRA (indifferent)

AND SPEAKING OF KNOWING THINGS, OUR “HOSTS” HAVE REQUESTED THAT I ASK YOU SOMETHING IN PARTICULAR.


PANEL 5

The annoyed, and now awkward, Jake is the main focus.


ZIRA (not shown)

LIKE A ROBOT.


PAGE 11


PANEL 1

Back to the factory scene, Atelidae leaps through a window!


ZIRA (not shown and word box)

THEY THINK THAT YOU MADE THAT ROBOT FOR US AND BELIEVE THAT YOU'RE A TRAITOR WHO'S WORKING FOR US AS A MUTANT WEAPONS MAKER.

WHAT?!


ZIRA (not shown and word box)

I AM SIMPLY TELLING YOU WHAT THEY HAVE SAID.


PANEL 2

The wall that the window was part of explodes apart thanks to Motormouth's sonic scream!


MOTORMOUTH (angry and loud)

I'LL @#$% TEACH YEH FOR SICKING Y'R BLOODY ROBOT AT US!


ZIRA (not shown and word box)

FROM WHAT I WAS ABLE TO HEAR, AND THROUGH PERSONAL OBSERVATION, THESE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN GREATLY AFFECTED BY THE SKRULL INVASION AND BELIEVE THEY'RE PREVENTING ANOTHER ONE BY TAKING DOWN THE DEVIANT RACE.


PANEL 3

A big view of the factory building where one side is Motormouth seen through the hole she made and the other side where Tess-1 pushes Killpower through the wall towards the outside! Motormouth looks inside for Killpower. A hot rod engine sound is made.


MOTORMOUTH (annoyed)

YO, TEKRON! I'M GOING TO GIVE THAT BRAT THE BIGGEST @#$% SPANKING IN BLOODY WEAN DISCIPLINE HISTORY, SO.... OI! ARE YEH LISTENING TO ME?!


JAKE (not shown and word box)

BUT YOU GUYS AREN'T SKRULLS, HELL, YOU'RE NOT EVEN EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL.


ZIRA (not shown and word box)

TO THEM WE'RE CLOSE ENOUGH.


PANEL 4

Atelidae is making a run for it on all fours to get a distance from the craze British woman with the loud mouth!


ATELIDAE (nervous, annoyed, and though balloon)

THAT DOES IT! TESSY AND I ARE MOVING TO A STRANDED ISLAND WHERE WE WON'T DUMP INTO PEOPLE AND END UP IN LUNATIC FIGHTS!


ZIRA (not shown and word box)

BUT BACK TO WHAT THEY WANT, WHICH IS TO KNOW THE WEAKNESSES OF THE “WEAPON” YOU CREATED FOR THE DEVIANT CAUSE.


ZIRA (not shown and word box)

THOUGH I HAVE A FEELING YOU WOULDN'T KNOW ANY.


JAKE (not shown and word box)

WHAT'S THAT SUPPOSE TO MEAN?


PANEL 5

Tess-1 punches the ground in an attempt to get Killpower! A hot rod engine sound is made.


ZIRA (not shown and word box)

DESPITE WHAT YOU THINK OF ME, I DO HEAR SOME OF THE THINGS ATELIDAE SAYS, LIKE YOU HAVING THIS RULE THAT YOU AREN'T VERY GOOD AT FOLLOWING AND THAT SHE SOMETIMES NEEDS TO KEEP AN EYE ON YOU.


ZIRA (not shown and word box)

ALSO ABOUT A ROBOT THAT SEEMS VERY OLD AND HAD FALLEN FROM THE SKY INTO YOUR JUNK YARD WHICH SHE TALKED A LOT ABOUT AS IF SHE HAD STRONG FEELINGS FOR, AS IF IT WAS A PET OF SOME KIND.


PAGE 12


PANEL 1

Weapons start to come out of Tess-1! A hot rod engine sound is made.


ZIRA (not shown and word box)

HOW DO YOU HUMANS SAY IT? YOU WENT “OVERBOARD” WITH THAT ROBOT'S CUSTOMIZING, AND BECAUSE OF THAT, YOU WOULDN'T KNOW WHAT WEAKNESSES THAT SAME OLD ROBOT, NO DOUBT FOR ATELIDAE'S SAKE, WOULD HAVE BECAUSE YOU WERE TOO BUSY GOING OUT OF CONTROL.


COMPUTER READOUT BOX

IMPROVISE.


TESS-1 (machine voice)

ELIMINATE.


PANEL 2

The trigger happy crazy Killpower brings out his big league weapons!


KILLPOWER (happy with glee, crazy, and loud)

YEAH! GO FOR IT, MAN! GO FOR IT!!!


JAKE (not shown and word box)

N.... NO I DIDN'T.


PANEL 3

Atelidae decides to stop running!


ATELIDAE (annoyed and tough)

YOU KNOW, IF I'M GOING DOWN, THEN I'M GOING TO STOP RUNNING AND MAKE SURE SHE ENDS UP IN SO MUCH PAIN, THAT SHE WON'T BE ABLE TO ENJOY THE VICTORY!


ZIRA (not shown and word box)

JAKE, LONG BEFORE WE HAD OUR SERVANTS PROCURE YOU, WE HAD YOU CAREFULLY OBSERVED TO SEE IF YOU WERE RIGHT FOR THE EXPERIMENT AND ONE OF THE REQUIREMENTS WASN'T YOUR LEVEL OF MATURITY.


PANEL 4

Same as panel 3, but Motormouth is running past Atelidae in panic! Atelidae looks spooked to what she sees behind the woman!


MOTORMOUTH (panicking and loud)

SCAPA, YEH LITTLE BRAT! THOSE TWO IDIOTS ARE ABOUT TO GO YAMPY WITH THEIR BOOM MAKERS!


ZIRA (not shown and word box)

I KNEW THINGS ABOUT YOU LONG BEFORE WE EVER MET IN PERSON.


PANEL 5

Same as panel 5, but Motormouth is gone and Atelidae starts to run the same direction as the woman!


PAGE 13


PANEL 1

Atelidae and Motormouth are making a run for it, while behind them is a good amount of big explosions, but despite that, Killpower's madman laughter and the hot rod engine sound that Tess-1 makes are still able to be heard!


ATELIDAE (desperate and angry)

THIS WOULD HAVE NEVER HAD HAPPEN IF YOU DIDN'T ATTACK TESSY!


MOTORMOUTH (desperate and angry)

WHAT DID YEH BLOODY @#$% EXPECT ME TO DAE?!


MOTORMOUTH (desperate and angry)

YE'RE MATE LOOKS LIKE A KILLER ROBOT!


ATELIDAE (desperate and angry)

YOU STILL SHOULDN'T HAVE SHOT AT HIM!


MOTORMOUTH (desperate and angry)

AND WHAT IF HE ENDED UP @#$% SHOOTING AT ME?!


ATELIDAE (desperate and angry)

WITH A MOUTH LIKE YOUR'S, I'M SURE A LOT OF PEOPLE WOULD THANK THE KILLER ROBOT FOR DELIVERING THEM PEACE AND TRANQUILITY!


MOTORMOUTH (desperate and angry)

AH' @#$% SOD ORF AGAIN!


PAGE 14


PANEL 1

IT IS THE BEST PLACE TO BE IN ANY SITUATION.


PANEL 2

Where Thomas Graveton and Mary Sandmon are.


MARY SANDMON (serious)

SHE MENTIONED SOME EXPERIMENT, SIR.


THOMAS GRAVETON (serious)

YES, BUT THE QUESTION IS, WHAT KIND OF EXPERIMENT?


THOMAS GRAVETON (serious)

WHAT HAVE THEY CREATED, OR HOPED TO CREATE, AND DOES IT INVOLVE THE X-GENE SINCE THIS MAN JAKE SEEMS TO BE INVOLVED?


PANEL 3

The still of Atelidae on the view screen is shown.


THOMAS GRAVETON (not shown)

AND WAS IT A MILITARY EXPERIMENT TO BE USED ON HUMANITY?


THOMAS GRAVETON (not shown)

SO, NOW THEY HAVE YOU ALL LOCKED UP IN THIS PLACE?

ZIRA (indifferent)

PERHAPS.... BUT ALSO NOT EXACTLY.

THE REASON THAT THE OTHERS AND I ARE HERE.... AND ALIVE.... IS BECAUSE THEY FELT THEY HAD A USE FOR US.

THE TONE OF YOUR VOICE SEEMS TO INDICATE THAT THE CALL WAS SERIOUS.


MARY SANDMON (serious and a little annoyed)

ONE OF THE RESIDENTS (loud and panicking)

OH' MY GOD! WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE!


CAPTAIN McGREG (loud and frustrated)

WE'RE NOT HERE FOR YOU! WE'RE AFTER THOSE MONSTROSITIES THAT THREATEN YOUR WAY OF LIFE!


ANOTHER RESIDENT (loud and panicking)

SOMEONE CALL THE AVENGERS! ANYONE TO SAVE US FROM THESE MANIACS!

THOMAS GRAVETON (serious and a little depressed)

THAT WAS NOTHING LESS THEN A MIRACLE TO SOLVE.

MARY SANDMON (not shown and word box)

BUT I'M AFRAID IT DOESN'T CHANGE THE FACT THAT HIS TEAM HAS LOCATED THE ROBOT AND DEVIANT GIRL AND IS NOW HEADING TOWARDS THEIR LOCATION.


CAPTAIN McGREG (in charge and confident)

FORWARD, MEN!


THOMAS GRAVETON (not shown and word box)

GROAN” MAYBE THE ROBOT WILL SOLVE THIS ANNOYING PROBLEM BY BLASTING THAT IDIOT OUT OF EXISTENCE WHICH WILL SURELY MAKE ME FEEL BETTER.


MARY SANDMON (not shown and word box)

FILTHY MONSTROSITY!


PANEL 3

Captain McGreg is looking at the restraint Killpower who in the background.


KILLPOWER (angry)

HEY! DON'T YOU HIT THAT KID!


CAPTAIN McGREG (annoyed and in disbelief)

WHAT DO YOU MEAN DON'T HIT THAT KID?!


CAPTAIN McGREG (annoyed and in disbelief)

YOUR FRIEND HERE HAD BEEN HITTING THIS KID BEFORE WE EVEN GOT HERE!


KILLPOWER (angry)

YEAH, BUT THAT WAS A FIGHT!.... YOU.... YOU'RE JUST BEING AS BULLY!


PANEL 4

Atelidae is still on the ground and looks sad. Captain McGreg is standing above her. Motormouth, Killpower, and the soldiers are in the background.


CAPTAIN McGREG (feeling pride)

OH' BUT THAT'S WHERE YOU'RE WRONG, BECAUSE WE ARE FIGHTING, THIS THING'S KIND, BECAUSE THIS THING HAS THE POTENTIAL OF CAUSING ANOTHER INVASION LIKE THE SKRULLS!


CAPTAIN McGREG (feeling pride)

AND WE WILL FIGHT THEM UNTIL NONE OF THEM ARE LEFT TO EVER THREATEN HUMANITY TO BEGIN WITH!


PANEL 5

Motormouth is the main focus.


MOTORMOUTH (a little spooked and in disbelief)

EXCUSE ME FOR ASKING, BUT WHAT BLOODY @#$% LOONY BIN DID YEH ESCAPE FROM, FATTY?!

Captain McGreg's left side is shown.


CAPTAIN McGREG (annoyed)

YOUR OPINIONS MEAN “NOTHING” IF YOU'RE ON THE OTHER END OF OUR GUNS, SO SHUT YOUR TRAPS!


CAPTAIN McGREG (annoyed)

ONCE WE PUT A BULLET INTO THAT THING'S HEAD, WE'LL BRING IT'S CORPSES AS EVIDENCE.


CAPTAIN McGREG (thought balloon)

AND HOPEFULLY THIS WILL CHANGE THE BOSS'S MIND ON FIRING ME AND GIVE MY JOB BACK BEFORE ANYONE HERE REALIZES THAT THIS IS AN UNAUTHORIZED MISSION.
