SCENE: "SUPER DEAD MAN"

(In darkness, a huge blast is heard and a cry of pain and then a huge crash like something hit the ground.  Lights come up on a small crater with a superhero lying in the middle of it.  People rush out to see.  A shocked lady is standing with half a leash next to the crater)

GEM
What in the holy high heck happened here?

HANK
Is that?

GEM
It is!

HANK
That super hero guy?  The one we keep hearing about in the news?

WINNY
My... my...

(She bursts out crying)

GEM
Did he land on your dog?

WINNY
Uh-huh.

GEM
You poor thing.

WINNY
My... my Boopsie!

(Gem hugs Winny)

HANK
He must have fallen down from pretty high to make this size crater.

GEM
I hear he's strong.  Maybe it's just cause he's strong that he made such a big hole.

WINNY
And crushed my Boopsie!

HANK
I wonder what he was doing up there?

(Sidekick runs in)

SIDEKICK

No!!!!!

(Sidekick dramatically falls at superhero's side)

GEM
Hey, you know what happened?

WINNY
Why did he fall on my doggy?  That was a registered Chow Chow.  She won prizes.  But not any more.

(Winny cries)

SIDEKICK
Have some respect lady?  This was the Earth's greatest hero!  Do you know how many times he saved this planet?

HANK
Nope... no clue.

GEM
Can't recall.

SIDEKICK
You're kidding right?  You don't know about the aliens?

HANK
Aliens?  Really?

SIDEKICK
Or the asteroid?

GEM
Must have missed that on the news.

HANK
You watch the news?

GEM
Entertainment Tonight... The Daily Show... Late Late Show... those count.

SIDEKICK
No!

HANK
I love the Late Late Show.

GEM
That skeleton is hilarious.

(HANK and GEM laugh, hold out their right arms and shake their right hands limply)

SIDEKICK
What is wrong with you people?!

WINNY
Can't you see we're upset?  Have you no respect?  It's not easy losing a pet, is it?

SIDEKICK
This wasn't a pet!  He was the best thing that ever happened to this planet... and now... he's...

HANK
Toast.

GEM
A hero pancake.

HANK
Hero speed bump.

SIDEKICK
Stop it!

GEM
Touchy touchy.

WINNY
So you're affiliated with this person?

SIDEKICK
Yes.

WINNY
Then you will be hearing from my lawyer!

SIDEKICK
What?!

WINNY
Your associate killed my prize dog and now I demand justice.

SIDEKICK
Why do we even bother?  You people make me sick.  The one person who kept you safe from all the dangers in the universe and all you can worry about is your stupid dog!  And make jokes!  Why did he even bother saving you people.  You all deserve to die!

(They all look at Sidekick in shock.  They are all quiet for a bit.  A police officer enters in a hurry)

WINNY
Thank goodness, officer.  You must arrest this person!

(Officer points gun at Sidekick)

OFFICER
This the killer?

SIDEKICK
No!  I'm his sidekick.

OFFICER
Sidekick?  What's that mean?  That slang for something.

(GEM and HANK snicker.  Officer smiles like he made a good joke)

SIDEKICK
Come on!  This is serious!

WINNY
I would say so.  Officer... this person killed my dog.

OFFICER
What?  Is this true?

SIDEKICK
Isn't anyone worried about a mighty hero is dead here?

OFFICER
Not if he killed some dog, I'm not.  That's animal cruelty.

HANK
And hunting without a license.

GEM
Dog-a-cide!

SIDEKICK
No! No! No!  He's the good guy.  He saves people.

OFFICER
There's no excuse for animal abuse.

SIDEKICK
I... what?!  No!

OFFICER
You part of this?

SIDEKICK
Me?

WINNY
That's his partner.

OFFICER
Partner in crime?

SIDEKICK
I can't believe this is happening.  You're all a bunch of stupid, idiotic imbeciles!

OFFICER
Who you calling stupid?

SIDEKICK
That's it!  I'm done being a hero!  I quit!

(Sidekick rips off mask, throws it down on super person in crater and stomps away)

WINNY
Aren't you going to arrest anyone?

OFFICER
I don't think I can cuff that one in the crater.  Not sure I see an arm left.

WINNY
What about the other one?

OFFICER
I suppose I could.

WINNY
Quit supposing and do it!

OFFICER
Geez lady.  Fine.  I'm going.

(Officer exits after Sidekick)

(Evil laugh is heard. Mezmero enters in a cool looking villain uniform with a helmet covering his face. Darth Vader type breathing comes from his helmet. Hank and Gem are impressed)

HANK
Now that's impressive.

GEM
Totally.

MEZMERO
I know.

(He flips open or removes his helmet and does an evil laugh again. Hank and Gem are so impressed they clap)

MEZMERO
Please... Control yourselves.

GEM
Sorry... You're just so...

MEZMERO
Handsome? Awesome? Amazing?

HANK
Cool!

MEZMERO
Of course.

(Sidekick runs in a yells)

SIDEKICK
No! Not Mezmero! I should have known you were behind this!

GEM
Isn't he impressive?

SIDEKICK
He's pure evil!

MEZMERO
You say the sweetest things.

SIDEKICK
But good should win in the end. Evil can't win. That's impossible.

MEZMERO
Get used to it, kid. Can't you hear the winds of change?
(Mezmero does a heroic stance and farts. Gem and Hank laugh.  Sidekick waves hand at the smell)

SIDEKICK
Evil!

(Mezmero does an evil laugh)

(Officer enters and Sidekick screams and runs away. Officer  chases Sidekick)

(GEM and hank go up to Mezmero)

GEM
Can we get a picture with you?

MEZMERO
Certainly.

(They do silly poses with him)

HANK
Thanks! These will be awesome on tweetface.

MEZMERO
Be sure to tag them with #mezmeroisevil that will link it to my fan club.

GEM
Sure!

HANK
Bad guys are so cool.

(Gem and hank exit. Mezmero stands over super dead man)

MEZMERO
I finally did it. I finally beat you. And all I had to do is NOT reveal my evil plan. Why do we villains always do that? Why do we have this strange need to tell you all our devious plots before we do them? That always gives you time for that last minute save... That last minute effort that gets you through... Or perhaps we reveal some flaw in our plan you are able to exploit. Not this time. This time it was kill first, gloat later. This is so much better. I get to brag now. Bragging is so much better than revealing the plan. Time for a victory dance on your grave!

(Mezmero does a dance around super dead mans hole in the ground. A kid, DAVID, enters)

DAVID
Stop that!

(Mezmero stops)

MEZMERO
What's wrong kid?

DAVID
Show some respect, creep.

MEZMERO
Beat it kid. I am having a moment. You're harshing my buzz.

DAVID
You are a bad bad person.

MEZMERO
Yes.

DAVID
And you killed a very great man.

MEZMERO
Great? A great pain in the asteroid.

DAVID
He was trying to help the world. You were trying to destroy it.

MEZMERO
Too late kid. No one cares. All they see is how amazing I am. It's all about appearances. No one remembers an old hero the minute something new cool and interesting comes along. He's yesterday's news... And tomorrow's garbage.

(Mezmero laughs at his own joke)

DAVID
Stop that!

(DAVID sprays something at Mezmero. Mezmero coughs)

MEZMERO
What was that?

DAVID
Pepper spray.

MEZMERO
No!

(Mezmero coughs... Has asthma)

MEZMERO
Where's my inhaler?

DAVID
Not so tough now huh?

MEZMERO
You... You...

DAVID
Yes?

MEZMERO
You're... Evil...

(Mezmero dies and falls in to hole with super dead man)



DAVID
Never take off your helmet dude. Your only weakness. Everyone knows that. You all have a weakness don't you. Some fatal flaw. Super dead man's was a rare Amazon frog poison that every bad guy always seems to dig up. Yours was breathing... Yet you always take off your helmet... Talking is every bad man's weakness. The more super you are, the harder you fall.

(Picks up Mezmero's helmet)

DAVID (CONT.)
Evil huh? Mezmero called me evil. Perhaps we are all a little evil... Battling the good inside us...which side of me won... Did I do the greater good? Does the end justify the means? Or was what I did just as evil?

(Sidekick runs in)

SIDEKICK
You did it!  You stopped Mezmero!  Way to go kid!

DAVID
Beat it loser.

(David puts on helmet and leaves)

SIDEKICK
Geez.  Who are you?  Emo-boy?  What's your power?  Are you sadder than a speeding bullet?  Able to depress people in a single bound?  You're like opposite that evil clown villain.  Hey, you could defeat him.  That's a great idea.  You should do battle.  Hey!  Don't you need a sidekick?

(Sidekick follows David off.  Officer enters out of breath.  Tries to call out after Sidekick but bends over unable to speak.  Officer sits by the hole.  Finally can talk again after a bit)

OFFICER
What a mess.  That's the problem with you supers.  Always leaving a super mess for us to clean up.  Things were so much simpler before all you supers arrived.  Seems like when you're all fighting, things get a whole lot worse.  Would those villains really be messing so much up if they didn't have one of you super guys to beat?  Do you supers have to break so much to get the bad guy.  Good vs. evil used be about detecting stuff and solving the mystery.  Now it's about blowing things up and who can leave the biggest hole in the ground. Give me a few good police officers any day of the week.

CLOSING MONOLOGUE

ALIEN
In the end, what kind of heroes do we desire?  Ones who become better than us or ones we can become?  There are heroes all around us, doing things every day to make our lives a little better. These heroes are normal people with no super powers but are super in other ways. So what path will you chose?  Will you be an ordinary hero who makes a small difference in the lives of those around you?  Or will you settle for nothing less than extraordinary.  But would you chose to be super good if it meant you would unleash something super bad upon the world?
