1. INT. THE PIT - LIVING AREA - Day 1. 0900
LYRIC is having fun with A ROBOT!
Robot robot robot!
CHRONAL enters, gorgeous beast.
You finally managed to make a robot!
Yes he did!
Why did you give it Cloudburst's voice?
I am a robot.
I am going to the shops to show off my new robot.
2. INT. THE SHOPS - Day 1. 0930
LYRIC and ROBOT are having a lovely day. They both have ice creams.
This is the best robot day ever.
I am a robot. Mm, this ice cream's lush.
I tried making ice cream once. Tripped over my words and made a big splodge.
What's a splodge?
Oh, robot. You have so much to learn about humans.
A PERSON appears! She is dressed in a coooool crimson costume! Maybe it's a superhero?
She holds out her hands!
And Lyric is pulled to the ground! Almost as though gravity itself had increased lots! OMG!
Oh no! A supervillain! Activating super robot powers.
Dark clouds gather above -
A lightning bolt strikes -
But the person absorbs the energy, instead of being comically electrocuted!
Robot is sad.
The person holds out her hands again -
And robot is sucked towards her -
And she punches poor robot in the face!
I win round one. I'll be back later.
And the person is gone! Wow! What a supervillain!
3. EXT. THE PARK - Day 2. 1000
AMITY and OVERLOAD are on the swings.
CAPTION: "The following day ..."
What if she wins next time?
Has Fountain Girl ever won?
Yes, once! It was 1994.
I think you're probably safe, then.
Okay. Your turn.
I've forgotten the rules.
Oh, is this a game? I thought we were just talking!
Suddenly, a PERSON appears! She is a supervillain! We met her before, remember?
Oh, hey, you were mean to my friend! And his robot!
Yeah! Robots have feelings too!
Uh, this one does.
The supervillain holds up her hands, pointing towards Overload -
No no no! Don't make me fight. Ms Glass says I mustn't.
Overload is sucked towards the supervillain -
And then thrust away with incredible force!
Crash! The see-saw will never be the same again.
Mate, I get that you're a villain and everything, but do you need to be such a bully about it?
Amity frowns -
And the supervillain HOLLERS!
Oh, cool, I won Round Two. I can't wait to tell Animalgaman.
Maybe he'd like to meet at some sort of medical facility that specialises in Overload's bones.
4. INT. THE PIT - LIVING AREA - Day 3. 1200
The furniture in the pit is arranged as an obstacle course - row of chairs, balanced pyrmids of tins, big tinsel webs.
SHIFT on one end, WRAITH holding the stopwatch.
Ready, steady ...
A SUPERVILLAIN appears! Shift's face falls.
Time for the semi-final.
Wraith becomes invisible -
But his light is drawn towards the supervillain -
And the room goes dark!
There's lots of grunts and shouts and punchy sounds.
The light returns, and Wraith has been taken out, and Shift is missing.
Round three to me.
A BAT flutters down from the ceiling and becomes SHIFT.
No, hang on, that doesn't count. I didn't get a chance to do anything.
The finale is at midday tomorrow. I call on Chronal to face me at Battle Field. The terms of combat - his wife is to stay away.
Oh, lame, she broke the tinsel web.
5. EXT. BATTLE FIELD - Day 4. 1200
CHRONAL is ready & extremely talented. AMITY, SHIFT, WRAITH, LYRIC and ROBOT are gathered to watch.
The SUPERVILLAIN appears!
I am not late.
I have perfect timing!
We'll see about that.
The villain holds a hand towards a distant tree -
Which uproots -
And shoots towards Chronal.
I can see why you didn't want Finesse here.
Chronal freezes the tree in time.
She'd be livid at that sort of behaviour. Replant it.
The villain holds another hand towards Chronal!
The tree shoots towards him -
Knocking Chronal to the ground!
What have you done to me?
He runs towards the villain -
Speeding up as he does so -
The villain holds up both hands -
And Chronal suddenly stops.
I am SUPERNOVA.
Chronal fights the freeze, struggling to get closer.
You think time matters to me? I eat time for breakfast.
Chronal is released -
But he's exhausted -
And falls to the ground.
Amity steps forwards.
I defeated her before.
Supernova holds a hand towards Wraith -
Appears to suck darkness out of him -
And the darkness engulfs Amity.
It's me against Chronal. Time versus space. Alright. I will give you one free hit.
She stands still, arms outstretched behind her.
Chronal stands -
And blasts her with, um, time blasts. Yeah.
But they have no effect.
You're completely immune.
SUPERNOVA (suddenly cheerful)
Excellent. Well, that's all I needed you to check. I'll be heading off now.
What?! You were using him for a check-up?
Oh, no. Certainly not. There's a lot more to come from me.
She grabs Chronal's wrist.
Chronal is too weakened to struggle.
It's been a real pleasure meeting you, Chronal. I look forward to the rest of our lives together.
Behind Supernova, a six-foot wormhole opens.
She steps inside -
And it closes.
