Fan Fiction / Re: Explorers of the Unknown: The Asteroid of Doom
« on: April 15, 2014, 09:24:06 PM »
Thanks. :)


Explorers of the Unknown: Asteroid of Doom part two

Page 1

Panel one:  A shot of the Explorer monitor as a picture of Blaze Blossom is recapping what is happening. Next to her is a mini screen of the asteroid heading to earth and underneath that mini screen is another with the earth being destroyed.

Blaze Blossom: This is Blaze Blossom, CIA operative and liaison to the Explorers of the Unknown.

Blaze Blossom: And from what you have just informed me, a giant asteroid is suddenly, from out of nowhere, is streaking towards us and in less than three hours, earth will be annihilated.

Panel two: A shot of The Explorers as they are sitting at their table. Red is up front as he is talking directly with Blaze. To his left is Gismo and to the right is Angel and Wheels who glare at Blaze Blossom while Squint is behind them, leaning in his chair as he makes a comment that riles them up. Near the end of the table are Nitro, F/X, and Spike who roll their eyes at the girls. Squint is going on with his science and Red decides to interrupt him and get him back to the business at hand.

Squint: You forgot the part where you were Red’s ex-girlfriend. But good exposition nonetheless.

Angel and Wheels: Grrrr

Gizmo: Actually, earth would be broken up and from my calculations would end up becoming an asteroid belt around the moon a mere few decades after—

Red: Right. All life on earth would end.

Page 2:

Panel one: A shot of Nitro as he is laying out several explosives (mini-minds, dynamite, grenades and various other c-4s and ect as he piles up his massive amount of weapons he seemingly dug out of his pocket to illustrate his point) as the other members of the Explorers turn towards him. Spike looks on in amazement. while F/X begins to wheel  his chair away from Nitro.

Nitro: Hey, I say we load up on nukes and we shoot skeet. I’ll volunteer my service and even contribute to the cause!

Panel two: Gizmo begins to explain to Nitro what is wrong with that plan as Nitro as everyone turns on Nitro’s idea.

Gizmo: I’m afraid that is not feasible.

Nitro: It’s very feasible! You point and shoot and listen for the kaboom!

Panel three: A close-up on Gizmo as he explains what is wrong with Nitro’s plan.

Gizmo: To start, the calculated mass and density factored upon the time of impact would have little to no effect on the outcome we have in place.

Gizmo: And even if the .000012 % chance that the asteroid miraculously breaks up, large portions would still impact earth and the resulting air pressure would scorch the western hemisphere and the environmental impact would result in—

Panel four: Nitro begins to place his explosives back into his pocket as F/X and Spike look on in relief. F/X is beginning to wheel back towards Nitro. The ladies are now moving closer to the monitor while Squint has fallen asleep.

Nitro: Fine, Gizmo. I get it. Bad stuff still happens. Just say that for us layman, will ya?!

Monitor: At least someone is throwing out ideas!

Red: Actually, I think I we might have something…

Page  3

Panel one: A shot of the monitor as Blaze Blossom is overjoyed as Red begins to blush from Blaze’s compliments. Angel and Wheels look on in anger as both have a vein in there forehead popping up.

Blaze Blossom: Oh, Red! I knew that I—er, the world could count on you! I’ll leave this up to you, but I will need a debriefing, maybe on a more private channel?

Panel two: Angel reaches over and presses a button to the monitor to shut it off as Blaze is last seen looking on with surprise. Red is taken by surprise while Wheels nods approvingly at Angel. Gizmo raises an eyebrow in confusion while F/X, Nitro, and Spike walk over and chuckle to each other. Squint is still asleep.

Angel: If you want to be social, start a twitter account! We’re The Explorers of the Unknown, and we have to save the world!

Panel three: Angel has placed her head at Red’s chest as she flirts with him to Wheels’ frustration. Red blushing turns to Gizmo who tries to hide a snicker.
Angel: Now, Reddikins, what is your plan?

Red: Er, um, right…

Panel four: Red with Angel still clinging to him is talking with Gizmo as Gizmo seems exasperated with what Red is proposing. Wheels is trying to pull Angel off of Red to no avail. F/X is raising his hand to get Gizmo’s attention.

Red: Giz, remember that secret project of yours you have been working on…?

Gizmo: Egads, Red! I’ve just yesterday completed it and the main hypothesis propionates I have engineered still need weeks and weeks of strict testing until I can safely assume--

F/X: Uh, Gizmo…?

Page 4:

Panel one: Everyone turns to F/X as F/X has his left hand up in the air and into a fist while his right hand is palm down and lowered to his chest.

Panel two: F/X fist is lowering to hit his palm. Gizmo adjusts his glasses as he focuses on F/X.

Panel three: F/X’s fist hits his palm.

WHAP

Panel four: Gizmo is alarmed as F/X motions with his arms like a giant explosion is happening to show that they really don’t have much of a choice as they’re doomed anyway. All the other Explorers, save for Squint, who is still asleep look at and stare at him hoping he gets the point.

Gizmo: !!

Panel five: Red and Gizmo are leading the way as they seem to be running at the reader. Gizmo is pointing ahead to show he fully understands what F/X was getting at. Wheels and Angel follow behind as they both smile at Gizmo. Nitro is patting F/X across his back and gives him a giant thumbs up for his performance. Spike is wheeling Squint in his chair as Squint is stretching his arms and letting out a giant yawn.

Gizmo: Ahem, I think a field test isn’t out of the question.

Red: Good to hear.

Squint: Yaaawwn. We finally saving the world…?

Spike: Pretty sure.

Page 5

Panel one:  All of the Explorers are standing in front of two mechanical doors reading LAB 06 as they wait for Gizmo to punch in the right access code on a panel just to the right of the doors. Angel is talking with Squint as Squint shrugs his shoulders. All the other Explorers are watching as Gizmo begin to enter a code into a panel to open the high tech door guarding The Explorer Lab. Wheels is looking right over Gizmo’s left shoulder. Nitro is leaning against a nearby wall as he waits impatiently. Spike picks lint off of F/X’s cloak that he just noticed.

Angel: Get enough beauty sleep?

Squint: Got a mirror?

Wheels: Gizmo you are amazing!

Gizmo: Um…th-thanks.

Panel two: Wheels looks over Gizmo’s shoulder and the number code he is pressing as she raises an eyebrow as something catches her eye.

Wheels: Wait…

Wheels: Is that my birthday?

Gizmo: Oh. Um. You see…when you factor in the possible number sequence and--

Panel three: Gizmo has the doors open as the Explorers look inside to see a 50 foot robot as they all react in shock. The robot is painted red and yellow. The right hand has been replaced with a Mega Man like blaster. The robot looks similar to one used by Myron Pepperdinkle in the last Explorers story Archie published.

Gizmo: Hey, everyone! This is our giant E.B.R.S. !! Let’s talk about that!!

Caption: Explorer Battle Robot Suit to those nonfans of acronyms.

Yeah. It was only for an issue, but I liked it as it gave him more of a personality trait then smart guy.

And I was just adding hints on future villains. If I do any more stories. And it's done. I just have to proofread, maybe add more detail...and put in Explorer names when I wrote in the Archie names by mistake. :)

Page 14

Panel one: A shot from inside of a scope as the sight is set on a big foot like creature, a skunk ape, in a tree. The skunk ape is around three foot tall with black and white fur. It looks scared out of his mind as it has no place else to hide.

Caption: Florida. The Big Cypress Swamp.

Caption Skunk Ape. Small smelly Big Foot.

Hunter: Boys, looks like we get the smelly critter treed good.
 

Panel two: A shot of the hunter ( about 6’6 and 380 pounds) as he is wearing overalls and has his rifle pointed at the skunk ape. Next to him are two of his redneck friends. One (Chet) is tall and gangly and is wearing a worn out ballcap and a Goose Gallery shirt where a goose is wearing camouflage gear. The other (Jed) is slightly more in shape than Chet and has stringy blond hair. He is decked out in camouflage from his clothes to his painted face. Chet is pinching his nose shut from the smell the skunk ape is eluding. We are in the swampland of Florida in a small patch of trees and bushes with only a small clearing ahead and behind the hunters. The trees start out with large trunks and go smaller and smaller until it forms a dome over the area with small bits of light shining through.

Jed: Reckon if’n this smelly monkey is real, then maybe that guy in the funny costume might actually have the money he promised us!

Chet: To think, Johnny, we take it back alive to The Collector, we’ll get double the pay!

Panel three: Johnny leans into his rifle as he prepares to pull the trigger as the skunk ape vainly tries to hide in the branches of the tree.

Johnny: Hmph. Dead’s easier to haul back—might even smell better that way, too, for all we know.

Panel four: A rope suddenly wraps around the gun and is yanked from Johnny’s grasp and is pulled back away from him.

Off-Panel: So, this Collector doesn’t do his own collecting. Too bad. After hearing how he targets rare species, I was hoping to have a few choice words with him.


Panel 15

Panel one: The group of hunters turn around as they are shocked to see who interrupted their hunt.

Johnny: No! It can’t be! These parts isn’t supposed to have your type setting your feet in it!

Panel two: A shot of Red Andrews and Angel Lodge from over the shoulders and heads of the hunters. Angel is in a fighting stance as she prepares for a fight. Angel's attire is slightly different as she is now wearing 3/4 black pants. Red has the rifle in his hands as he tucks his rope back into his belt as he grins at the hunters confidently.

Red: Sorry. But when Red Andrews, Leader of the Explorers of the Unknown, receives word that a rare species is being threatened, I will walk through Hades barefoot to stop it from happening!

Angel: And Angel Lodge, martial artist and heiress, is very cross at certain riff-raff for making her miss a luncheon the state senator has prepared for her father!

Angel: …plus a nice beach with my boyfriend would beat this swamp that is just killing my hair strands…

Panel three: Angel turns to Red as she points at her face. Red tries to smile as big as he can as he nods his head.

Angel: Red Andrews, I hope you appreciate all that I put up with! I can feel my pores showing!

Red: I do, and they’re not. You’re perfect.

Red: I promise that we’ll have a nice romantic evening. Just the two of us. No interruptions.

Panel four: Johnny is grunting as he apparently doesn’t like being forgotten by the Explorers. Chet and Jed are talking with one another as they come to an agreement.

Chet: Hear that, Jed? That’s why I don’t want a girlfriend! Too high main-e-nence!

Jed: Reckon that’s right.

Johnny: Hmmmph.
   
Page 16

Panel one: Johnny is pointing a finger at Red Andrews as Jed and Chet slink behind him. Red and Angel turn back to the hunters and are serious again.

Johnny: You should stick with getting cats out of  trees for little kids, hero. Me bagging that misfit will have me set for life!

Panel two: Red Andrews breaks the rifle across his knee as Angel looks on impressed.

Red:  No. It’ll make you an idiot who helped with the extension of a species.

CRRAAK

Angel thinking: Sigh. He’s cute when he’s riled up.

Panel three: Johnny begins to charge the two Explorers as Chet and Jed begin to race towards the tree to get the skunk ape.

Johnny: Heck with this! I’ll hold off these two! You get that thing out of that tree however you can!

Jed: Reckon that’s a plan.

Page 17

Panel one: Red motions for Angel to go on ahead as she runs straight at the charging Johnny.

Red: Angel, could you please take care of those two? I’ll handle him.

Angel: Fine. But it would be nice to go up against a foe with some decorum and class.

Panel two: All seen in one panel as Angel runs, leaps over Johnny, does several flips in the air and lands on her feet in a crouching position in front of Chet and Jed as they stop dead in their tracks.

Angel: Tell me you insufferable cretins…ever been touched by an angel? I won’t be able to send you to heaven--

Panel three: Angel Lodge lands a leaping uppercut that knocks out Jed as Chet tries to strike Angel in response.

KRAK

Angel: --But I can knock you into next week!!

Chet: Oh yeah, gal!?

Panel four: Angel Lodge grabs onto Chet’s arm and swings around his back as she prepares to put him in a head lock.

Panel five: Angel Lodge hits Chet with a barrage of punches right at his nose in one swift motion.

Pow Pow Pow Pow Pow

Panel six: Angel Lodge let’s the dazed and defeated Chet fall face first onto the soft ground as she wipes her hands clean of the entire fight with a sanitation cloth as she sighs to herself. The skunk ape is climbing down from the tree as it has hearts over its head as it turns its head to look at Angel

Chet: …Two Tuesdays back ta back?…hope his week is a new Swamp Men show….

WUD

Angel: I swear, my entire service staff doesn’t deal with as much trash as I do!

Page 18

Panel one: Johnny begins to throw a punch at Red as Red feints to his left and begins to bend over to reach for Johnny’s right leg.

Johnny: Fine! I’ll take care of you, then the girl, and then the monkey!

Red: I have a better idea.

Red: First I dodge.

Panel two: Red picks up Johnny as Johnny has his right leg bent in the air  and lifts the much larger man off the ground.

Red: Then I take advantage when you’re unbalanced….

Panel three: Red grabs hold of Johnny’s right arm as he swings him towards the fallen hunters and Angel Lodge as she is carrying the skunk ape in her arms as she uses a free hand to hold her nose.

Red: Now I use leverage—

Johnny: WHOA!

Panel four: Red swings Johnny onto his hunter friends as he lands with a loud thud near the still unconscious Chet and Jed. Angel Lodge begins to approach Red as she seems pleased with him as she continues to hold her nose.

Red: --And let momentum and gravity take over from here!

Angel: Nice moves, Mr. Soldier of Fortune.

Page 19

Panel one: Red looks over at Angel as Angel now is holding the skunk ape by the hand and leading it to Red. The skunk ape gleefully walks along side her.

Red: Should I be jealous?

Panel two: Angel leans in close to Red as she smiles at him.

Angel: No. You’re less hairy and smell much better.

Panel three: A close-up as Red and Angel are as close to possible to kissing.

Red: Lucky me.

Panel four: Red pulls back as his wrist band and Angel’s wrist band goes off. Red’s disposition goes back to being serious as Angel looks on frustrated. The skunk ape is puckering his lips and pointing at himself.

Red: An Explorer alert! We’re needed back at Explorer Mountain ASAP!

Angel: Hmmph!

Panel five: Red runs ahead as Angel leads the skunk ape along as she talks with it much to its confusion. In the background we can see a cloaked figure in a full body high tech costume with a C on his face plate as he looks at the Explorers with great interest.

Red: No time to take the skunk ape to Preserve Island! We’ll have to take him with us!

Angel: So…would you be open to a bath? Maybe some deodorant? A shave?

The Collector: Extraordinary is this Red Andrews and his Explorers of the Unknown. My benefactor was right. They will provide me a good bit of sport.


Page 20

Panel one: Red and Angel are entering the Explorer meeting room as Red rushes in and Angel is carrying the skunk ape in her arms. Nitro is leaning next to the door as he notices the skunk ape. Squint is trying to cover his nose as the stench of the skunk ape is coming right at him. Sitting down at the Explorer red and yellow table is F/X who is looking over various magazines for face disguise ideas and taking notes and making diagrams. Wheels gets out of her seat next to F/X and runs up to Red as she is overjoyed to see him. Hanging in front of the room is a monitor. The only Explorer not present is Gizmo.

Nitro: What, we getting a mascot now?

Squint: YLRRK! It suddenly smells like my old high school gym locker!

Red: Okay, we’re all here so where is Gizmo and—

Wheels: Red! I heard about Florida!

Panel two: Wheels hugs Red as Red looks confused at what to do. Angel looks on with  twisted lips and a look of disapproval as the skunk ape looks on.

Red: Um, it was nothing, Wheels….

Wheels: You’re just being humble! I wish I had been there with you!

Panel three: Angel hands the skunk ape over to Wheels as she begins to lead Red away from Wheels as he shrugs his shoulders to the reader. Wheels sticks her tongue out playfully at Angel.

Angel: I’m sure you do. Here. I got you your own boyfriend.

Wheels: Try finding me a new best friend next time.

Gizmo off-panel: Ahem.   


Page 21

Panel one: Gizmo is in front of the monitor as it lowers to his side as it shows a display of a giant asteroid blazing towards earth. Gizmo adjusts his glasses as the rest of the Explorers begin to sit down. Squint is still holding his nose as he looks a the monitor, F/X is stacking up his magazines and research to the side, Nitro is rolling a piece of dynamite on the table in front of him as he’s already bored. Red sits in between Angel and Wheels. Angel leans her head on to Red’s shoulders as Wheels and the skunk ape look on jealously. Spike seems entertained by the work Gizmo has presented.

Red: Gizmo, what’s the emergency?

Spike: Say that’s a meteor, isn’t it, little buddy?

Gizmo: Not quite. Let me explain, Spike…

Panel two: Gizmo goes off topic as he acts like a teacher lecturing a high school classroom as he happily begins to go over the difference between a meteor and an asteroid.

Gizmo: The main difference between an asteroid and a meteor is location.

Gizmo: When a small planetoid is in space—as you can see here—it is an asteroid but when it enters the atmosphere it becomes a meteor and upon impact upon the ground a meteorite.

Panel three: Gizmo feels embarrassed as the majority of the Explorers look at him with different expressions. Angel glares at Gizmo for wasting her time. Red has his elbows on the table and his chin resting in his open palms as he waits for Gizmo to get back on point. Wheels rolls her eyes and smiles as she is at least appreciative of Gizmo’s effort if not the timing; the skunk ape has fallen asleep in her arms. F/X has gone back to reading one of his magazines. Nitro is continuing to roll the stick of dynamite on the table only glaring up at Gizmo. Squint is trying to stay awake as he taps his upper jaw with his hand. Spike actually seems interested as he looks on wide-eyed like a kid who just received a gold star on a paper.

Spike: Learning is fun.

Red: Good to know. But the emergency, Giz…

Gizmo: Er, um, heh, yes—

Page 22

Panel one: Gizmo is standing in front of the monitor as it now shows the asteroid breaking up by bits in the earth atmosphere as it shadows over Riverdale.

Gizmo: Recently, the Explorer satellite link-ups picked up a 300 foot wide asteroid on a direct collision course for Earth with Riverdale being the center of impact!

Panel two: All Explorers begin to stand up as the seriousness of the asteroid causes them to snap to action. Wheels sets the skunk ape on the meeting table as it stretches its arms as it wakes back up. Nitro lets the stick of dynamite nearly fall to the ground before he reaches down to grab it.  Gizmo is moving towards the rest of the Explorers as he uses his hands to motion with to demonstrate what he is saying to them.

Gizmo: With the abnormal speed and the angle of entry adding to the temperature and the kinetic energy, upon impact the end result will be-- 

Panel three: A shot of the monitor lighting up in bright red, yellow, and orange explosion to show that the earth would be destroyed as The Explorers look on in horror. Even the skunk ape is shielding his eyes with its hands. Gizmo looks on sadly as he continues.

Gizmo: The total destruction of Earth.

Gizmo: Explorers, by my calculations, we are merely three hours away from Doomsday.

Squint: Huh. Guess it doesn’t matter I forgot to set the DVR for Seat of Kings now.…


TO BE CONTINUED...for a few hours anyway.

I like the weird wavy hair cut. I mean, it makes you want to see him get punched by Moose even more. Perfect for the character. :)

And there's no shame in sharing a hair cut with Shemp. Shemp was awesome and gets disparaged unfairly. Now Curly Joe! That's the worse stooge! :)

Page 6

Panel one:  The setting is Pickens Park as another crisis is in process A seven foot tall nearly five hundred pounds of pure muscle masked wrestler is holding up a three hundred pound man like he was a rag doll as various people scatter and run away from the behemoth. The wrestler—Man Mountain Monster—is wearing red and black tights with a red mask with a fang design as if it were about to clasp closed over his eyes. He has a bushy beard that goes all the way to his hairy chest. In the background we can see that the statue of General Pickens has been smashed into debris by Man Mountain Monster.

Man Mountain Monster: They say Man Mountain Monster is too dangerous for professional wrestling! They say Man Mountain Monster is too vicious, too uncontrollable! 

Panel two: Man Mountain Monster puts the man face to face with him as the man looks like he’s about to cry as he is scared out of his mind as Man Mountain Monster yells right at his face, spit covering the man’s face as MMM yells.

Man Mountain Monster: WHAT DO YOU SAY?!!

Panel three: The man answers as he tries not to cry as Man Mountain Monster looks over at the reader with an angry snarl

The Man: …I don’t like professional wrestling…!

Panel four: Man Mountain Monster hurls the man with as much velocity as possible as the man is screaming as he is coming at the reader.

Man Mountain Monster: YOU’RE GONNA NOT LIKE IT A LOT MORE!!

Man: AAAHHHH

Page 7

Panel one: The Man is about to hit a tree when a muscular figure leaps into action.

Muscular figure: Duh, thank goodness for all my stunt work and training—

Panel two: The red and white suited man catches the man as the man’s body covers up Spike’s face from the reader.

Spike: --And that I happen to like walks in the park!

Panel three: We still only see up to the chest of Spike as he begins to put the man back on his feet.

Spike: You okay?

Man: Yeah, barely. That masked guy is nuts he—

Man: Wait a minute! You’re one of them Explorers! You’re—

Panel four: The man points at Spike who is now in full view for the reader as Spike politely smiles back as he tries to be humble.

Man: You’re Spike! Stunt man and the muscle of The Explorers of The Unknown!

Spike: Shucks, I’m just an average Joe in a suit that magnifies his strength by ten!

Page 8

Panel one: Man Mountain Monster begins to charge at Spike as Spike softly pushes the man aside with one hand as he prepares to do battle with Man Mountain Monster. Man Mountain Monster is foaming at the mouth and his legs and feet are powerful enough to dig up dirt and rock as he rampages ahead. Man Mountain Monster has both of his hands clamped over his head as he prepares to double axe handle Spike into the ground.

Man Mountain Monster: Outside interference! For that, I’ll knock your head outside of this time zone!

Panel two: Spike grabs each one of Man Mountain Monster’s fists as he strains and is pushed back several feet and his feet dig into the ground as he tries to keep his footing steady.

Man Mountain Monster:  GRRAAAAHHH

Panel two: Spike begins to push back at Man Mountain Monster, much to Man Mountain Monster’s surprise.

Man Mountain Monster: Wha--?!You blocked the Two Fists of Eternal Pain and Torment??!

Man Mountain Monster: No one is stronger than Man Mountain Monster!! No one!!

Panel three: Spike is beginning to lift Man Mountain Monster over his head to body press him.

Spike: Funny thing about saying you’re the strongest or something like that…

Panel four: Spike slams Man Mountain Monster to the ground, creating a small crater in the shape of Man Mountain Monster’s body.

Spike: Someone just a bit better comes along and puts you in your place!!

THWAM

Page 9

Panel one: Spike is standing over the unconscious body of Man Mountain Monster as he lets out a sigh of relief. Spike’s wrist band begins to alert. Several people in the park are gathering around the combatants. Several have their phones out and taking pictures. Two women are blushing as they gaze at Spike. The man who had to put up with MMM’s treatment is making faces at the unconscious masked wrestler.

Spike: Holey Moley! Wresters sure are temperamental actors!

Panel two: Spike is talking into his wristband as he holds it up to his mouth.

Spike: Something wrong, little buddy?

Wristband: And how! Make your way back to Explorers Mountain! I’ll elucidate the particulars of our dilemma!

Panel three: Spike begins to run out of Pickens Park as the people in the park cheer him on. The two women sadly wave goodbye while a six year old boy is in front of them and is pretending to be Spike as he strains to lift a small tree branch over his head.

Spike: Uh-oh! The bigger the words I don’t know, the bigger the trouble!

Page 10

Panel one: A shot of Las Vegas with various Casinos. Various neon lights and signs have various Archie characters like Super Duck and Cosmo and whatever character you’d like. The focus of the panel is on The Red Circle Casino with a neon red flashing circle. On a nearby sign a heading reading: SQUINT, MASTER ESCAPE ARTIST AND NITRO, DEMOLITION EXPERT!! In small writing under their names it reads: Later two guys with a tiger. We can see that people are beginning to pile into the casino in droves, nearly causing a riot as various men and women push and elbow one another.

Caption: Las Vegas after running up a tremendous tab and exceeding gambling debts…


Voice inside of casino: Ladies and Gentleman, not only do we have two of the world famous Explorers of the Unknown…

Panel two: A shot of inside of the casino stage area as the seats are filled to the point some people are sitting on the tables, to the anguish and frustration of some VIPs. On the stage is the casino owner wearing blue and black sparkling suit and paints attire. To his right is Nitro and Squint, who is chained up from his shoulders to his ankles. Behind the two is a large safe  roughly as tall as squint with the inside showing various explosives implanted inside along with various explosives on the outside as well. Squint is indifferent to the danger as he yawns. Nitro is casually tossing the remote to the explosives in his right hand and back carelessly. The casino owner has a microphone in his hands as he motions and poses to ham it up for the crowd.

Casino owner: …But you are about to witness a stunt where the certainty of coming out alive is next to impossible!!!

Squint: Yaawn!

Nitro: Talk, talk, talk, talk! Let’s get to the boom boom boom!

Panel three: Squint begins to hop into the safe with a smile on his face as Nitro playfully twiddles his fingers to mock goodbye. The casino owner is motioning towards the two as he explains the act.

Casino owner: Not only is the outside of the safe covered with explosives, but the inside as well~!!

Casino owner: Squint only has a minute to escape from the Vault of Doom before Nitro detonates his explosives! Imploding this large safe into something you could put into your pockets!

Page 11

Panel one: The Casino owner is still hyping everything as Nitro eagerly anticipates when he can unleash his explosives. Nitro is tapping the red button on the remote, but not enough to push it down to show how anxious he is to show off his artillery skills

Casino Owner: Can he do it?!! Will he survive!!?

Panel two: The Casino Owner whispers over Nitro’s shoulders as he covers the mic with his hands. Nitro grins as he replies.

Casino Owner whispering: This isn’t really that dangerous, is it?

Nitro: We’re not putting a cherry bomb in a mailbox here!

Panel three: Nitro looks at his wristband as it begins to give off the Explorers Alert.

Nitro: Huh. Guess we’re going to have to wrap this up a early like.

Panel four: Nitro presses the button as the vault begins to implode as all the explosives go off from outside and inside

VRRROOOPPPHHH

Casino Owner: What are you doing!?  He wasn’t even in there for five seconds!!

Page 12

Panel one: The smoke begins to clear as the Casino Owner looks down in horror. Nitro looks down with a toothy grin, proud of his work.

Nitro: Heh. Look at that! Am I good or what!

Casino: Good?!! You’re a murder!!

Panel two: The casino owner motions down at the safe as it has now been imploded to a small smoldering metal cube no bigger than a thimble.

Nitro: Personally, I love it when things blast apart, but there is an art to imploding something.

Nitro: And you can always just blow that up later if ya feel like it!

Panel three: The Casino Owner is beginning to panic as is everyone else in the room as they are running around and have no idea what to do. Nitro is reaching down to pick up the metal cube.

Casino Owner: Someone died on stage! My license!! Am I an accomplish!!? What do I do?!

Nitro: Tell the next act to come out. Me and Squint just covered our debts in spade!

Panel four: Nitro is juggling the scorching hot metal cube as he runs out of the room. Inside of the stage area we can see the casino owner has fallen to his knees in sadness while two magicians with white lions look on in confusion. The tiger is sniffing the air and licking his lips like he smells something delicious.

Nitro: Hot potato! Hot Potato!

Page 13

Nitro is casually tossing the hot metal cube with his right hand as he is near a bar where a familiar long nose person is sitting with a cup of soda right next to him along with three plates contain various food stains and chicken bones. In the background we can see several old ladies playing slots. One old lady looks disappointed as her winnings are only a few coins.

Nitro: Figured I’d find you stuffing your face.

Panel two: Nitro flicks the metal cube into the soda cup as causes the soda to sizzle.  The person/Squint begins top pick up the cup as he still plans on drinking from it.

Nitro: There ya, go! A souvenir for ya, Squint!

plink

Panel three: Squint is sipping from the soda cup as several people look on in astonishment as they are seeing what happened on the stage in a flat screen TV hanging up over the bar. Next to the stool is the chains Squint was tied up with.

Squint: Thanks. But I would have rather have kept my ice cold soda pop, Nitro.

Panel four: Nitro points at his wrist band as the alert is stilling flashing as Squint casually puts his glass cup back down with only the metal cube remaining inside as he begins to stand up and lick his lips as he imagines enjoying nice food later on. The old lady who just won the few coins is walking away as just behind her, another old woman’s slot machine is gushing with coins.

Nitro: I’d rather we get going! I got a feeling that we’re going to be up against something big. And I can’t wait to turn that something big into small bits of nothing!


Squint: Hope you’re right, my combustible compadre. Because the bigger the threat, the bigger the victory party we’ll have after the day is saved.

Page one:

Caption: At the outer edge of The Milky Way Galaxy.


Panel one: A shot of a scout ship as it begins to set off a tractor beam into a nearby asteroid field. The ship is spiral shaped with two massive propulsion engines to the right and left side of the ship that is losing power. The tractor beam is coming out of the tip of the space ship. At the bottom of the ship an opening is let out for various triangular space probes to reenter.

Inside of scout ship: Conqueror Lrak this is Scout Ship 45Z reporting.

Inside of the scout ship: Our search in this desolate region of the universe has only identified one known planet in the nearby galaxy as inhabiting sentient life--

Panel two: Inside of the space ship we see a blue skinned alien wearing black and purple space armor with similar looking crew kneeling down at  a distorted hologram of a larger four armed, seven foot tall alien with a dog like appearance. Lrak looks on with all four arms crossed over his massive chest as his eyes glow bright red that somehow overpower the grey and blue hologram. Exact details of Conqueror Lrak are hidden by the blue and grey lighting of the hologram. Inside of the scout ship we see various panels and high tech computers that are just barely running thanks to the tractor beam use.

Alien: Lord, given how far away this one planet is from the empire and the time and energy it would take to travel…and our ship is already running low on power …

Alien: …May I recommend that…

Panel three: Conqueuor Lrak turns his head slightly as he shows off his fanged teeth smiling wickedly as his answer as the other alien cowers and lowers his head as he shakes.

Alien: Y-yes…

Alien: Yes, Conqueror Lrak. The challenge of worth shall begin at once--

Panel four: A close-up on a nearly 300 foot wide asteroid being repulsed by the scout ship as it shatters much smaller asteroids and space debris as it rockets at astonishing speed as it heads out for the targeted destination giving off heat and green repulse ray energy.


Inside of battleship: Prove your worth to be conquered by surviving, blue and green planet of the terrains….

Inside of battle ship: …For the challenge to your champions comes now!!

Panel one: A high angle view of Explorer Mountain as it surrounded by a forest and a nearby lake.

Caption: Explorer Mountain. Riverdale, USA. Earth.

Gizmo inside: Computo, security scans and global alarms detect nothing?

Explorer Supercomputer inside of the Explorer Mountain: Confirmed, Creator: Gizmo. Scans show no immediate threats. Systems operating at 100%.  Begin monitoring remote orbital satellites?

Gizmo: Please do as I finish…YES!

Panel two: Inside of Explorer Mountain’s control room as Gizmo is just now closing a panel to the Explorer Super Computer as he looks over at his Explore Wristband. The super computer itself is oval shaped with various 3D icons representing the individual Explorers. Red Andrews is represented with the color red rope, Angel with pink wings, F/X with a camera, Nitro with a stick of dynamite, Wheels with a car, and Squint with a motorcycle. Gizmo himself is represented by a brain with glasses on. The super computer has a map of the United States showing where each Explorer is by icon. Red and Angel are in Florida, Wheels and F/X are in Riverdale, Spike is in Riverdale not too far off, as is Gizmo only his is below the other two icons, Squint and Nitro are in Las Vegas.


Gizmo: The warning alert in the Explorer wrist bands are performing at optimal level and with the adjustments to the security protocol and new transference module, the unique signal each wristband constantly emits can be used to home in on each Explorer securely!

Panel three: Gizmo is wiping his brow with a handkerchief as he looks up towards the Wheels and F/X icons on the monitor as he obviously would rather be with them (more specifically Wheels).

Gizmo: Sigh, maybe next I’ll invent a software to help socially awkward geniuses communicate with girls….

Panel four: The entire control room of Explorer Mountain goes bright red as Computo, the Explorer Supercomputer, and various alarms around Gizmo activate. On a monitor is a simple showing of the universe with a dot rocketing past Jupiter and heading directly towards Earth. Gizmo presses a button on his Explorer Wrist band as he rolls up his sleeve.


Computo: DANGER! Space probe 25 stationed on Jupiter’s 22nd moon orbit has detected approaching threat!! Immanent Doom Probability calculating.

Computo: Calculation: Total destruction of Earth 99.9 percent

Gizmo: By Jove, I might not get the chance!

Page 3

Panel one: A shot of Riverdale First National Bank as police have lined up their cars and set up barricades to keep the crowd isolated as they monitor the bank. In the crowd we can see various reporters and camera man as they report live on the scene.

Inside the bank: Arggh! How did all of these cops show up!?

Panel two: Inside of the bank, three ski masked wearing robbers holding laser guns are in the center of the bank as civilians and bank tellers are lined up, sitting on the ground. In the middle of the civilians is an old African American who is winking at the eight year old boy next to her to try and show him that everything will be fine. One mask robber is heading for the old lady to pull her up. Near the first bank robber are five bags of money with various dollar bills poking out of one bag.

Robber two: We should have known this job was a bust when that new guy O’Brien never showed! Probably ratted on us!

Robber three: Yeah, well, I say we get what we got—

Panel three: The third robber begins to grab at the old African America lady as she sneers at him.

The third robber: --And we take us a hostage and get as far as we can get! And I say age before beauty!

Panel four: The robber pulls his hand up suddenly as he has pulled off the old woman’s white hair/wig as his eyes go wide in alarm.

Old lady off panel: And I say, you need to respect your elders!

Panel five: The bank robber is hit with an uppercut from the old lady that knocks him off of his feet. We can see just enough of the fist to show that it definetly doesn’t belong to any old lady.

Old lady off panel:  For obvious reaons!

POW

Robber Three: URK!

Page 4

Panel one: The bank robber lands unconscious to the ground as the other bank robbers rush to him. To the right of the panel we can see the dress the lady was wearing beginning to come off, landing right next to a white haired wig as various hostages look on with shock. The boy smiles from ear to ear as he recognizes who is saving them.

Robber 1: Wow! That’s a tough grannie!

Robber 2: That’s not an old lady! That’s one of the Explorers of the Unknown! That’s—

Panel two: F/X is standing up as he adjusts his cloak and peeling away the old lady face make-up as he greets the robbers with a confident smile.

F/X: F/X!

F/X: Master of special effects, disguise, and illusions amongst my other talents!

Panel three: F/X squints an eye as his voice changes to an irish accent.

F/X: Iffin’ ya known me talents, I might have been more then a look out, me bucko.

Robber two: That—That voice! That Irish accent! That’s O’Brien!

Panel four: The robbers point their laser guns at F/X as presses a crest on his cloak and begins to disappear from sight to the amazement of the hostages. Save for one hostage who tucks his head between his knees.

Robber one: Well, smart guy, we’ve got our weapons set right on you.

F/X: Then I better not be seen.

Panel five: The robbers twist their heads ever which way as F/X is throwing his voice all around the room, confusing them as they begin to stagger and become unnerved. One voice seems to be coming from a bank teller as she clamps her mouth shut with both hands.

Roof: Now where am I?

Just above bank teller: Nope.

To the right corner of the bank: Here’s some advice: Throw your guns down or I’ll throw you around more than I’m doing with my voice!

Page 5

Panel one: The robbers begin to run out of the bank as the shadow of a net is beginning to cover them as they leave and look back behind them. Each robber has a sack of money in their nonlaser gun holding hand.

Robber two: Forget this! I’d rather blast my way through the cops than deal with a guy like that!

Panel two: The net falls and wraps around the bank robbers as F/X reappears just in front of the robbers as he looks up in the sky.

F/X: Can’t have that.

F/X: And there are worse things out here for you—

Panel three: A shot in the sky as the Explorer Jet is beginning to uncloak. F/X waves a hand to signal a job well done. Various officers and people in the crowd look on in awe. Inside of the jet we can see Wheels blushing as she can’t help but smile.

F/X: --Like the master piloting skills of the lovely Wheels Cooper!

Wheels: Hi from up high.

Panel four: Wheels is looking at the monitor in front of her as she talks with F/X through her own wristband. On the dash of the jet is a picture of an eight year old Wheels in aviator gear as her parents stand proudly next to her. Next to that picture is one of Red Andrews. On a nearby monitor just to her left is an Explorer Alert with the icon of Explore Mountain flashing.

Wheels’ wristband: Say, how about we give the people a bigger show? Maybe a swoop and loop the loop?

Wheels: Sounds like a kick, but we’ve got an Explorer Alert Epson!

Panel five: The Explorer Jet is zooming off in the distance as we can see a rope ladder extended out as F/X begins to climb on it. The officers are arresting the robbers. The police are dragging out the unconscious third robber who is still seeing stars from his thrashing. One police officer is looking at the high tech laser gun of one of the robbers. Another is pointing a brand on the laser gun that shows a steel bar door with a halo above it


Officer: Where are these low rent punks getting this high tech artillery..!?

Officer two: And what’s this logo here all about?

All About Archie / Re: I guess Life With Archie is ending?
« on: April 08, 2014, 11:59:31 AM »
So he dies in both universes?

7
I don't think so. I mean, he can get on the stool and he comes back when he left no matter how long he was in the other dimension.

I think the main conflict was Slimey Sal (representing big food chains) trying to take out the last small competition (Jughead's Diner) left.

8
Actually, I liked the first issue. The rest...yeah, that's when things went down a bit. :(

9
Yeah, there are a ton of problems with Jughead's Diner. One thing that comes to mind was the supporting cast. There were around eighteen of them and it took two or three issues before they all were named.
I mean there are way more problems, but that's the first one that springs to mind.

Thanks. :)

Page 19

Panel one: Both girls get up and walk towards the bars as Black Mantle begins adjust the tin star pinned to his chest.

Black Mantle: I got that out of the way early this morning as I was working up plans for the wedding!

Betty and Veronica: WEDDING?!

Panel two: Black Mantle  is talking with the girls as the both look at him with disgust. Veronica is sticking a finger at her mouth like she was trying to throw up while Betty glares at Black Mantle.

Black Mantle: I decided that with all the loot I’ve gotten, now would be the perfect time to settle down in my own little town with my own little wife and raise a family of outlaws.

Betty: If you think either one of us will marry you, then you’re out of your mind!

Panel three: Black Mantle motions like a noose is around his neck as he uses his free hand to point at the girls who become alarmed at their situation. Betty and Veronica gulp as they image a noose around their own necks.

Black Mantle: Hey, give me your hand in marriage, or I’ll give you a noose around both your lovely necks!

Panel four: Black Mantle taps his finger to his chin as he tries to decide which girl he wants as his bride. Both Veronica and Betty’s eyes widen in worry.

Black Mantle: Tell you what. First one to step forward, gets the honor of being Mrs. Black Mantle!

Panel five: The girls begin to fight and struggle as they each try to push the other forward. Veronica is grabbing Betty by her ponytail and has her left arm  while Betty has her left leg wrapped around Veronica’s and is pushing Veornica’s head forward with her right hand. Black Mantle looks on angrily as he’s just been insulted with neither girl wanting to marry him willingly.

Betty: Ow! Ronnie! Let go my hair!!

Veronica: Betty, you better not scratch my face!

Page 20

Panel one: Black Mantle stomps his right foot hard on the floor and yells at the girls as they stop and look over at him.

Black Mantle: That’s enough!

Black Mantle: Just tell me the worse thing about yourself!

Panel two: Betty and Veronica, both of whom have their hair out of place and clothes wrinkled reply.

Betty: I have buffalo breath.

Veronica: I’m a self absorbed rich girl.

Panel three: Black Mantle is waving goodbye as he begins to leave out the door. Veronica is banging her head against the bars of her cell in frustration. Betty wipes sweat of her brow and gives a sigh of relief that it’s not her.

Black Mantle: Rich girl it is! I’ll have Midge work out the arrangements and we’ll have the wedding in a week or two.

Panel four: Veronica is pulling at her hair as she is becoming unhinged at her situation.

Veronica: Why!? Why do you poke fun at me only being rich?! Couldn’t you point out something else!? Like my weight?!

Betty: Well, for just bread and water you have been looking a tad bit….

Panel five: Veronica suddenly puts a hand over Betty’s mouth and is shooting daggers at her with her eyes. Betty looks like she’s about to cry from how tight Veronica has clamped her hand around her mouth.

Veronica: I don’t think you want to finish that sentence.

Betty: Uh-huh. Nvphh.

Page 21

Panel one: Black Mantle is outside the jail as Nick St. Clair and Chunk are talking to him. Nearby an elderly woman with dirty all over her dress is clutching her injured, hunched over back as she shakes a fist at Black Mantle

Nick St. Clair: We gathered up nearly all the money in town, boss.

Chunk: Heck, we own every brown sugar grain of this cookie of  town!

Black Mantle: That’s what I wanted to hear.

Panel two: Black Mantle is pointing at the two to leave as he gives them orders.

Black Mantle: Now I want you two to go out and spread the word that Riverdale is open for all desperados, outlaws, ne’re-do-wells, liars, cheats, and thieves.

Panel three: Chunk and Nick St. Clair look at each other in confusion as Black Mantle twists his muscle between his index finger and his thumb as he smirks.

Nick St. Clair: Won’t they just cause trouble?

Panel four: Black Mantle points at his head to illustrate his intelligence as he conveys his scheme.

Black Mantle: There’s a reason I’m the leader of this gang, boys!

Black Mantle: Now, listen up; I’m only going to tell you once.

Panel five: Black Mantle rubs his hands together as he sneers.

Black Mantle: Why keep going to town to town to rob when we can have outlaws come here!

Black Mantle: Riverdale will be a safe haven for anyone hunted by a tin star…for a hefty fee of course!

Panel six: Nick St. Clair and Chunk are riding out on their horses as Black Mantle pumps a fist in the air as several nearby children stick their tongue out at him.

Black Mantle: Hah! I’m going to marry a trophy wife, run my own territory, and be surrounded by all my evil, evil peers!

Black Mantle: Never going to Sunday school is finally paying off!
 
Page 22

Panel one: The Solo Sheriff and Jughead are beginning to ride up a hill. Strapped to Goldie and Hot Dog are various containers of water.  On the hill is sign pointing straight up and  reads: A LONESOME DOVE with a sad dove perched on top of the sign holding a small little sign reading:  I WANT A FRIEND. Archie is twirling a squirt gun that is dripping with water as he looks ready for action. Jughead is using his squirt gun to give Hot Dog a drink.

Solo Sheriff: We may have been held up a few days by that prairie dog migration--

Jughead: ---Not to mention bathroom stops.

Solo Sheriff: --But now we’re finally read to save Riverdale!

Panel two: The Solo Sheriff and Jughead stop at the top of the hill and stare down in complete shock at what they see off panel. The Solo Sheriff’s wrists goes limp as his grip on his squirt gun loosens.

Solo Sheriff: Gulp. Jughead, I don’t think we brought enough water.

Jughead:  H-how much did we need?

Panel three: A shot over the shoulder of the Solo Sheriff as we can see that there is a toll booth just in front of the entrance of the newly christen Mantledale (As shown by a giant sign hanging over the entrance to town with a cartoon Black Mantle waving his hand to welcome outlaws) as a line of outlaws (most wearing outlaw masks) stretches for miles and goes even over the horizon as Vic stamps the hand of a outlaw and motions for him to enter Mantledale. Behind Vic is several money bags of tolls that he has already collected. Jughead exhales as his lips form an “O” as he sees how bad the situation is. Hot Dog is holding his nose as he is picking up a horrible scent.

The Solo Sheriff: THE ENTIRE RIVER!!!

Jughead: …I haven’t seen a line this long since the last Wild Bill chili bean contest of some years back.

Hot Dog: Yuck! And it smells even worse!!

Archie's Friends / Re: any stories with Tony Topaz?
« on: April 03, 2014, 09:30:59 PM »
I honestly don't mind if minor characters like Jughead, I just don't like it when Jughead seems to respond or loses his normal cool.

Still, looks like we have a story where a bunch of the new characters get a chance to interact with the classic characters, so it looks like a fun story. :)

Okay. I'm going to finish the first part this week. Explorers of the Unknown story next week, and then part two of this story in two weeks. I think. :)

Page 11

Panel one: The Riverdale townspeople are all out in the center of town as they look on in shock and fear as Black Mantle and The Red Bandana Gang, still mounted on their horses address the new regime change in Riverdale. Mayor Lodge, Betty, Veronica, and Pop Tate are in front as Raj, Chuck, Nancy, Mr. Weatherbee, Ms. Grundy, and various others are behind them.

Black Mantle: Sad news, folks. Sheriff Archie had himself an accident and came down with a sudden, terminal case of unalive…

Black Mantle: Luckily, you have someone as handsome and charismatic as me to run things with my own personal deputies.

Panel two: Betty and Veronica begin to walk towards The Red Bandana Gang as everyone else in town begins to take a step back.

Veronica: You filthy horse thieving cowards! If you’ve done anything to Archie--!

Betty: You can’t just take over our town! We’re a tight knit community, and we’ll fight you tooth and nail!

Panel three: Black Mantle points behind the girls. Nick and Chunk are bumping shoulders as they laugh to one another. Moose is using his bandana to wipe dirt off his face as Midge motions with her face cheek that he’s missed a spot. Vic looks over at Moose and Midge and shakes his head at the two being nice.

Black Mantle: Ahem.

Panel four: Betty and Veronica turn around to see that the entire town has dashed into various buildings, hiding in alleys and one cowboy has dug his head into the sand like an ostrich. At a water trough one cowboy is under the water using a straw to breathe through.

Betty and Veronica: !!!

Panel five: Betty and Veronica turn back and have their arms folded at their chests as they both refuse to give up.

Betty: Fine! But it only takes one person to make a difference and there are two of us!

Betty: What say you to that!?

Panel six: Betty and Veronica are in a jail cell as they both sit on the bed. Betty is crying on Veronica’s shoulder as Veronica tries to console her. Out the prison window we can see that the sun is beginning to set.

Betty: Sniff Sniff. Did they really have to laugh that hard, that long…?

Page 12

Panel one: Veronica looks out the barred prison window as the sun begins to set as Betty begins to wipe away a tear.

Betty: And our Archie, what if they really did…

Veronica: They didn’t! I know that Archie Andrews is out there and will save us!

Panel two: A high angle shot from the cliff as we can see Archie’s prone body on the ground as Jughead and Hot Dog begin to walk towards him.

Jughead: This is exactly why I don’t climb a step ladder unless I have a pillow right underneath.
Hot Dog: You don’t do most of anything. But pillows are nice.

Panel three: Jughead kneels down in front of Archie as the ground is cracked underneath him. Archie is slowly beginning to raise his head up. Hot Dog begins to sniff Archie over.

Jughead: Hey, you dead?

Panel four: Archie determinedly raises his head as it is badly bruised

Archie: I’m not dead…

Archie: …And I’m not happy..!

Panel five: Jughead stands up and looks up at the cliff as he has both hands just above his closed eyes as examines how it must have been for Archie to fall off the canyon. Archie’s head flops back down as he begins to lose consciousness. Hot Dog draws his face back in a worried look as he stands over Archie.

Jughead: Yeah, that fall doesn’t seem like it would be that much fun.

Archie: I could tell you all about it…when I wake up….

flop



Page 13

Panel one: A shot of Archie’s face as he is just coming to as he has a rock as a pillow and just at his head is a bowl of water, towels, and left over bits of food in a plate. Just at the edge of the right corner of the panel we can see a small stream close by.

Caption: A few days later…

Archie: Ohhhhhh had this horrible dream of being tricked by Black Mantle and pushed off a cliff and then there was this Native American who searched my pockets for candy…

Panel two: Archie sits up as we can see he has a dirty blanket with a tag reading: Hot Dog covering half his body. At the stream is Jughead, now wearing war paint and a headdress with a  bird resembling a coo coo clock’s on his head as it is on a spring and going every which way, as he fills a small flask with water. Hot Dog is licking the water just in front of where the flask is.

Jughead: It would have melted in your pockets and gone to waste.

Panel three: Archie is sitting up as he points at Jughead’s face as Jughead just notices.

Archie: What’s up with the crazy war paint and bird?

Jughead: Oh, this?

Panel four: Jughead begins to dunk his face in the stream to wash the paint off as the weird headdress and bird flows away as an eagle swoops down to grab it in its talons.

Jughead: Sorry. I just got some more supplies and they were having another Black Mantle Appreciation Day party.

Jughead: 12th one this week.

Archie: Black Mantle Appreciation Day!!?

Page 14

Panel one: Jughead has his face cleaned up as Archie is fuming as his face is bright red and steam is shooting from his nostrils.

Jughead: Yeah. Black Mantle and his gang have taken over the town, locked up your girls, and they like kicking tumbleweeds at small children for yuks.

Jughead: But the food’s pretty good.

Panel two: Archie looks over a Jughead as he seems to remember him. In the background is a picture of Lil’ Cowboy Archie giving Lil’ Indian Jughead a plate of food as puppy Hot Dog looks on begging for scraps.

Archie: Say, you look like that Indian kid I met when I was younger and I gave food to when he was starving!

Panel three: Jughead sits down next to Archie

Jughead:  I am He-Of Long-Nose-And-Bottomless Stomach…but you can call me Jughead. And that day you became my kemo sabe, my best friend.

Archie: Wait…

Panel four: Archie points a finger at Jughead as Jughead fakes confusion.

Archie: Didn’t I loan you money for a burger last week that you were supposed to repay the next day?

Panel five: Jughead places his hands on each of Archie’s shoulders as he smiles at him. Archie turns his head to the reader as he sighs.

Jughead: Kemo sabe also means “He who always gives and never collects back.”

Archie: Imagine that.

Page 15

Panel one: Archie stands up as he dusts himself off. Jughead begins to stand up as he goes into his pockets.

Archie: I need to go back and save the town. But not as Archie Andrews. No. I will come back as a symbol of justice to strike terror in the Red Bandana Gang and liberate Riverdale!

Jughead: I think I can help with that….

Panel two: Jughead holds up a domino mask.

Jughead: Here. The bank was hosting their annual pie eating contest and was being robbed at the time. This became the grand prize.

Panel three: Archie is now wearing the mask as his golden stallion Goldie races up behind him and kicks in the air as a single beam of light shines down on Archie like a spotlight. Jughead and Hot Dog are both clapping as they are impressed by the awesome scene.

Archie: Henceforth, I shall be known as—THE SOLO SHERIFF!!

Page 16:

Panel one: The Solo Sheriff points at Jughead as Jughead is taken by surprise. Goldie nods approvingly.

Solo Sheriff: And you can be my faithful Indian sidekick, Jughead.

Panel two: Jughead backs away as Hot Dog follows in kind.

Jughead: Whoa whoa whoa. These moccasins are not made for sidekicking! I was your nursemaid, wasn’t that enough?!

Panel three: The Solo Sheriff and Goldie begin to walk away as The Solo Sheriff takes Goldie by her reins and fakes leaving as they both wink at each other. Jughead and Hot Dog’s eyes light up.

Solo Sheriff: Too bad. Being my sidekick would be like becoming my new deputy. And that jobs mostly sitting and sleeping and getting paid for it,

Solo Sheriff: Plus you get free room and board and a tab at Pop Tate’s Soda Saloon and--

Panel four: Jughead races up to The Solo Sheriff and places an arm around him. Hot Dog races beside Goldie and gives it two things up. The Solo Sheriff smiles ear to ear as his plan worked.

Jughead: Hey, if my kemo sabe needs me, I’ll be there for you, Arch.


Page 17

Panel one: The Solo Sheriff is on Goldie as Jughead is riding Hot Dog beside him. Jughead is sitting Indian style as Hot Dog struggles with the weight.

Jughead: So what’s the plan, sheriff my sheriff?

Hot Dog: Brother! Some people sure take advantage of “man’s best friend”!

Panel two: Archie responds to Jughead as he motions towards his empty gun belt.

Jughead: We going to ride in, guns blazing?

Solo Sheriff: What guns!? This a children’s story!

Panel three: The duo have stopped on their trail as an intersecting trail has a long line of prairie dogs crossing. Next to the trail is a prairie dog crossing sign. Hot Dog looks on impatiently as he now has to carry Jughead even longer.

Solo Sheriff:  But we need something to fight with. Maybe water pistols?

Caption: Just call them “squirt guns” and I think it’ll be cool.

Panel four: The Solo Sheriff smiles down at Jughead as Jughead pulls out two squirt guns.

Jughead: Luckily, I have a kid sister!

Archie: Super! We’ll just travel to the nearest river, load up on ammo, and we’ll come back and save Riverdale!
 

Panel five: The Solo Sheriff and Jughead look on as the prairie dogs are now doing a conga line as they are slowly moving forward

Solo Sheriff: And if we’re lucky, we might get there before our first gray hairs!

Jughead: This is why you never give anything cuddly something for them to take advantage of.

I'm willing to compromise. :)

15
I actually like newer version Sabrina. Especially her aunts. :)

Trula Twyst, Ginger Lopez, Midge, Samantha Smythe and Ethel (prefer the older version, but as long as she's not the whiny, annoying version I'm cool)

Honestly, I don't really hate any character.
