Superhero Support Group Part 4 Hang Up My Cape comedy skit script for actors

PART 4
Superhero Support Group by D. M. Larson



PART 4 - Hang Up My Cape

(The Doctor enters with another superhero.)

DOCTOR
You'll never have to worry about flying again.

CAPER
I guess it's time to hang up my cape.

DOCTOR
Stay off the rooftops. Or we'll have to have another session.

CAPER
I'm done.  Please.  I promise.

DOCTOR
Very well.  No need to schedule a followup then.

CAPER
Please.  Never again.
DOCTOR
Next!

(Catchick stands.  Dogboy grabs her arm but she hisses and pulls away.)

CATCHICK
Look.  I want to be able to go the beach without getting the urge to use the bathroom.  I want to go swimming again.  I am tired of all those naps.  Please doctor.  Take me next.

DOCTOR
Walk this way.

(Catchick follows Doctor off.  Caper starts to go but Smack grabs him.  Shade comes out.)

SMACK
The doctor took your powers!

CAPER
I think so.

SHADE
Try flying.

CAPER
No, I promised.

SHADE
Get on that chair and try.

CAPER
I don't want to go back in there.  I promised never to fly again. I won't do it.  Please don't make me. It was horrible.

SMACK
What did the doctor do?

CAPER
I can't say.  It... it was too terrible.

SHADE
Get on that chair.  I must know if she really took your powers.

CAPER
No.

SHADE
Do it or else.

CAPER
Or else what?

SHADE
I'll haunt you until the day you die.  You know I can be pretty scary.

CAPER
The doctor is scary.  You're just super annoying.  Fine.  Then you'll let me go?

SHADE
Of course.

(Caper gets on a chair.  They watch and Caper jumps and falls.)

CAPER
There.  Happy?

SHADE
The Doctor did it.  She really can take our powers.

(Smack grabs Caper.)

SMACK
Let's try the window to be sure.

(Smack throws Caper through a window.  He sticks his head out.  Caper screams.  Then there is a thud.)

SMACK (Cont.)
Nope. Can't fly.

DOGBOY
Did you have to do that?

SMACK
Yes, yes I did.

SHADE
We had to make sure his powers were really gone or if it was the temporary power jam of being near the doctor.

(Dogboy looks out window.)

DOGBOY
But still... did you have to do that?

SMACK
He landed on that old lady.  He'll live.

DOGBOY
What about the old lady?

SMACK
Good point.
