Omega: The Series
by Scott Bennie

 

 

ESTABLISHING SHOT - EXT. EUROPEAN MONASTERY

1. MED SHOT: SANCTUARY

Itís a medieval church. Six monks in simple robes kneel on mats, in contemplation, facing an old SHAOLIN master.

2. CU: THE DOORS

The doors open. A SHADOWY figure enters the hall.

3. MED SHOT: THE MONKS

The monks, sensing the evil, rise to their feet, moving into an attack posture.

4. MED SHOT: THE SHADOWY FIGURE

The MONKS charge the INTRUDER, launching flying tackles at the SHADOWY FIGURE - and become skeletons when they come within 5í of the man and collapse to the ground in piles of bones.

5. ECU: THE DEACON

A brief glimpse under the shasowy hood. THE DEACON is smiling.

6. CU: HIGH PRIEST

Shock is on his face.

7. MED SHOT: High Priest

The HIGH PRIEST gets to his feet. He moves to attack.

8. MED SHOT: THE DEACON

THE DEACON spreads open his arms. The temple suddenly bursts into flames. A hand of flame grabs the HIGH PRIEST and he begins to scream.

HIGH PRIEST

(in burning pain)

Argh! Argh!

THE DEACON

Screams? From one of such a stoic order?

HIGH PRIEST

(fighting the pain)

You can go... to...

THE DEACON

Iíve already been there, father. How else could I bring you such a convincing facsimile of the place?

(beat)

Now, you may tell me where I can find the Bowl of Iscarion, and then Iíll allow you to die.

CUT TO:

ESTABLISHING SHOT. LOS ANGELES. PAN ACROSS THE LANDSCAPE to the hollywood sign

9. MED SHOT: OMEGA

OMEGA, in civilian ID, is standing on the sign with a paraglider (complete with omega symbol) strapped to his back, while waiting for a camera crew to finish setting up shop.

OMEGA

(impatient)

Címon guys, does it really take three hours to set up a shot?

People are ignoring the star of the production, busy with their mundane business. OMEGA tries to intercept CREWMAN, whoís carrying a 2x4 slab of wood in both hands.

OMEGA

Hey! You!

CREWMAN ignores him, walks past him. OMEGA looks frustrated. Another CREWMAN, carting a stack of scripts piled almost three feet high, scuttles past him in the other direction.

OMEGA (contíd)

(quickly)

Hey pal. I need to talk with someone!

SECOND CREWMAN

(muffled by the papers)

Not now.

The second CREWMAN walks past him. A third crewman, carrying a tray of food, also attempts to walk past him. TOMMY grabs him by the wrist.

10. MED SHOT - OMEGA and THIRD CREWMAN

THIRD CREWMAN

Hey!

11. CU - OMEGA

If looks could kill...

OMEGA

I got a question.

12. MED SHOT

THIRD CREWMAN

(intimidated)

Sure... No problem...

OMEGA lets go of the wrist.

OMEGA

Iíd like to know when weíre actually going to start filming this piece of... art.

THE CREWMAN wonders.

THIRD CREWMAN

Weíre not going to be able to shoot this thing until after the break.

TOMMY

(annoyed)

What break?

THIRD CREWMAN

Our half hour break. Union rules.

He walks away. OMEGA stands there agape. Long reaction shot. EMILY comes over, clipboard in hand.

EMILY

Isnít this exciting? Our first national spot!

13. MED SHOT - TOMMY turns around, seething with anger

14. REACTION SHOT FROM EMILY

EMILY (contíd)

(puzzled)

Tommy? Whatís wrong.

15. TWO-SHOT. TOMMY turns to EMILY, takes the clipboard out of her hand and throws it on the ground.

TOMMY

National spot? Well, see spot run.

OMEGA transforms into costume, chucking the cheezy paraglider, then in full god mode, he rises into the sky and flies away from the shoot. EMILY gives him a "but... wait" look. CHARLIE comes over to EMILYís side. EMILYís in full bimbo mode.

EMILY

Tommy! Where are you going? Come back!

She looks very disappointed. CHARLIE cranes his neck to follow his course.

EMILY

He took off! But we havenít even filmed the commercial!

CHARLIE

(sarcastically)

Lemme guess. They didnít serve him a latte.

16. PANORAMIC SHOT

OMEGA flies over the city

17. A closer view

OMEGA

(to himself)

Union breaks. What a load of stinking crud. What I need is some action...

18. CU: BANK.

An explosion is set, and a jet of fire comes from the doorway, billowing smoke.

19. LONG SHOT

OMEGA sees the explosion.

OMEGA (contíd)

...like that.

20. MED SHOT

OMEGA lands by the bank. He enters the building.

 

 

He notices a pack of men in medieval costumes looting it.

OMEGA (contíd)

Well, well. If it isnít the Royal Pains in my butt.

ROYAL GUARDSMAN

Omega!

21. One of the ROYAL GUARDSMAN fires an energy scepter at OMEGA. It bounces off him harmlessly.

22. OMEGA appears (via teleport) beside him, grabs the scepter, crushes it. He grins evilly as the guard reacts.

OMEGA

(parodying the ad)

Blaster scepter, serious bucks. Butt-kicking from Omega, priceless.

23. From behind, a pair of ROYAL GUARDSMAN shoot a TASER line from a pair of wrist devices into OMEGA. He grimaces - he feels it, but itís not hurting him THAT much.

24. OMEGA grabs the taser lines, ignores the electrical current thatís shooting into him, and swings around the line. Theyíre sent flying, and he finally releases the line like a bolo. The GUARDSMEN go hurtling into a brick wall in the side of an alley.

25. USING a parked car as cover, a squad of four agents fire heavy looking blaster pikes at OMEGA. Again, he notices the attacks.

OMEGA

Forget it dude. All the kingís horses ainít saving your sorry butts.

26. The symbol on OMEGAís chest glows, he spreads his arms wide, and an Omega symbol appears in mid-air just behind the agents. It explodes, and they (and the truck theyíre using as cover) are sent hurtling backward from the force of the fireball.

ROYAL GUARDSMAN

Heís making fools of us! Get him, now!

27. OMEGA grabs him.

OMEGA

"Get him now"? Thatís all? Not even "as Majestron commands"? Guys, youíre...

28. THE PRINCE bashes him from behind with a scepter. It makes a sickening thud.

OMEGA

...slipping...

OMEGA collapses into unconsciousness.

THE PRINCE

As Majestron commands, fall before me!

(beat)

....loser!

29. BLOOM walks out, a smile on her face, juggling the plate. She tosses it high into the air. A panicked PRINCE suddenly grabs the plate out of mid-air before it crashes.

THE PRINCE

Do you know how much that plate is worth? Are you completely insane?

30. BLOOM demurely steps backward, whimpering slightly as she does. She calmly grows a white rose blossom out of her left hand and begins to eat it

31. REACTION SHOT from THE PRINCE

THE PRINCE (contíd)

(sarcastically)

Of course youíre not insane... Whatever was I thinking?

32. TWO SHOT. BLOOM puts her hands on her hips in a bit of a sultry pose.

BLOOM

(slightly annoyed)

You interrupted my juggling. I was getting very good at it.

THE PRINCE

(irritated)

Fine, Iím sorry, whatever. Let us depart before the... peasant wakes up.

33. BLOOM bends down over OMEGAís prone body, strokes the OMEGA symbol on his chest.

BLOOM

(rambling)

Isnít this an Omega sign...

THE PRINCE

The pretentious brat probably canít even read Greek.

BLOOM

"Omega" represents "endings". I like endings.

34. A siren starts to ring in the distance. THE PRINCEís head cocks with concern.

THE PRINCE

(angry)

Bloom! Weíre leaving! Now!

THE PRINCE, plate in the other hand, pulls BLOOM away with a hard tug.

BLOOM

(whimpering)

But - but I donít know how he ends yet...

THE PRINCE pulls harder.

THE PRINCE

Címon!

Bloom smiles, forms another white rose in the palm of her hand, and blows it like a kiss.

35. Track the rose as it follows the air currents and lands on OMEGAís face.

36. MCU: OMEGA as he begins to stir.

OMEGA

Oh....

37. EMILY and CHARLIE rush to his side.

EMILY

Tommy? Are you alright?

CHARLIE

(sarcastically)

You know, for someone whoís such a bad dude, you sure get knocked out a lot.

OMEGA

Damn...

CHARLIE

So who was it this time? Supervillain? Mugger? Little old lady from Goldís Gym with a dumbbell in her purse?

38. ECU - OMEGA, eyes burning with hate.

OMEGA

No.

(beat)

Majestron...

CUT TO:

An establishing shot of MAJESTRONís court. SERVANTS go about their business. Zoom past the ASTROLOGER as he busily works away charting a horoscope on a computer screen. THE FOOL is practicing his pratfalls in a room full of banana peels, holding up his two puppets to comment on his acrobatics after heís tripped. The sound of laughter comes from the ROYAL GUARDSMAN in that room.

[NOTE to the Story Editor: Neither THE FOOL nor THE ASTROLOGER have speaking roles in this episode, these are just cameos to set up their appearances in later MAJESTRON episodes. No need to hire the voice talent.]

PAN into the central throne chamber. THE PRINCE waits impatiently, the plate in his hand. BLOOM goes over to THE DEACON, who surveys the scene in satisfaction.

THE PRINCE

(muttering)

Heís waited twenty years for this... youíd think heíd be here on time.

37. MAJESTRON, seated on the flying imperial throne, appears at the head of the throne room. Pause for enough time for a dramatic tag. Everyone gets on bended knee. BLOOM does a schoolgirl skip, and the DEACON has to persuade her to genuflect with a well-placed nudge.

HERALD

All hail to his most royal majesty! All hail to Majestron!

38. MAJESTRONís throne stops next to the PRINCE

MAJESTRON

Kings are not clocks, my son... we work to our own schedules.

THE PRINCE

(reluctantly)

Forgive my impatience, father.

MAJESTRON takes the plate without accepting the apology. The flying throne comes to rest on the big throne. MAJESTRON holds up the plate and smiles.

MAJESTRON

Now we come to a long anticipated moment. Deacon, when can the ritual begin?

DEACON

Tonight. The appropriate preparations must be made.

MAJESTRON

(sighing)

Preparations...

(beat)

These tedious methods are the reason why we so rarely resort to sorcery.

39. ANOTHER ANGLE

BLOOM

Will they be serving chocolate at this ritual?

DEACON

(quick aside)

No, child.

BLOOM

Drats.

DEACON turns to MAJESTRON

DEACON

I assure you, Majestron, the results will be worth the wait.

MAJESTRON

Of that, we have no doubts. Tomorrow will be a day unlike any the world has ever known.

40. PAN the minions. BLOOM is excited, almost gleeful. THE CAPTAIN OF THE GUARD stands with his arms crossed, holding the BLASTER PIKE, trying to look professional. THE PRINCE looks bored. THE DEACON has a slight, knowing smile on his face.

MAJESTRON (O.C.)

Tomorrow, the one thing that plagues our existence more than anything else on this planet shall be totally eliminated...

41. ECU - MAJESTRON

MAJESTRON (contíd)

...free will.

END ACT ONE

EXT - TOMMYíS OMEGA VAN. ITíS BEGINNING TO RAIN

CUT TO:

INT. OMEGA VAN. Lots of high-tech gadgets, and a few magazines. TOMMYís SITTING ON A TABLE, SHIRTLESS, A BANDAGE OVER HIS HEAD. HEís looking at a magazine sideways, itís obviously A CENTERFOLD.

42. EMILY grabs the magazine out of TOMMYís hands.

TOMMY

Em!

EMILY

I thought you only read this for the articles!

CHARLIE leans into the shot.

CHARLIE

Obviously Mr. Brave and Bold here was looking for clues.

TOMMY

Guys, itís a respectable magazine. Not to mention my personal property...

(aside)

Though I wouldnít mind a few of their phone numbers.

43. CHARLIE hands him a folder. TOMMY sits down in a big leather chair with an arrogant, athletic motion, and opens the folders.

44. TOMMY scans the folder.

TOMMY

(hums, finds what heís looking for)

Let me get this straight. The Royal Guardsman were using major league talent like the Prince and Bloom, and all they took was a piece of dishware?!

CHARLIE

The police think you scared them off.

45. TOMMY throws the folder aside.

TOMMY

Those two donít frighten. Ever.

The only way a plate would be that valuable if it were magical. And you know who that means -

EMILY

Not the Deacon again! If he tries to feed me to yet another dragon, Iíll...

TOMMY

(cutting her off)

Not going to happen.

(pause, heís thinking)

Now that plate, itís gotta come from somewhere. A mystical dish service of doom or something?

EMILY

But who would make evil tableware?

CHARLIE

(aside)

You guys ever watch Martha Stewart?

TOMMY

Charlie, see if you can find a match for the plate on the computer. Iím going patrolling.

CHARLIE

Letís see: weíve got the Deacon, the Prince, Bloom, and maybe even Majestron himself. Would telling you to be careful do any good?

TOMMY shoots him an "are you crazy look"

 

CUT TO:

INT. ROYAL GUARDSMAN PALACE. The throne room is a frenzy of activity. The DEACON and majestron are at a computer console, discussing things in the background. THe captain of the guard stoically stands watch.

BLOOM is dancing around the throne room, singing, lilies popping out of her hands as she sings in a bizarre parody of Fantasia.

[NOTE TO THE DIRECTOR: The song depends on whatever rights we can get; weíll rewrite this on set and rehearse with the voice actress.]

BLOOM

(singing)

Silly little lily wonít go home...

46. Keeping his eye on the empty throne, THE PRINCE sees itís empty and slowly moves his hand towards it to touch it. BLOOM suddenly dances in, knocks his hand aside, and offers him some flowers. She leans in and smiles half-innocently, half-seductively.

BLOOM (contíd)

Flowers for the grave, sirrah?

THE PRINCE

(threatening)

For your grave?

BLOOM

(happy)

Ooo!

(beat)

That would be very, very sweet!

She smiles broadly. We see her fangs and realize sheís a vampire for the first time. THE PRINCE knew this, but even knowing her secret, heís still a little sickened by it.

BLOOM (contíd)

It stand a little redecoration.

THE PRINCE visibly shudders.

Cut to MAJESTRON talking with the DEACON. The DEACON points out the image on a large computer screen.

47. REAR ANGLE: PRINCE AND DEACON

DEACON

We shall place the bowl on the cornerstone of this cityís first mission. When the light of the full moon strikes the bowl...

48. MED. SHOT - SIDEVIEW DEACON AND MAJESTRON

MAJESTRON makes a triumphant motion, then stops.

MAJESTRON

...it will fill itself with magic milk.

(beat)

That strikes us as a trifle ridiculous, Deacon.

49. ECU: MAJESTRON

DEACON TALKS AS HEíS REFLECTED IN HIS FACEPLATE

DEACON

This "milk" comes from the union of the moon and mother Earth herself. Anyone who tastes it shall be bewitched. And whoever feeds them the product of this enchantment...

50. TWO-SHOT, FOCUS ON MAJESTRON

BLOOM dances around them, scattering flowers. MAJESTRON is a little irritated. DEACON hides a slight smile.

MAJESTRON

...shall become their god.

(beat)

We think we could live with that.

CUT TO:

A dark and dismal warehouse setting in the evening. CENTER on the door. OMEGA BREAks it down with a vicious kick.

51. MCU: OMEGA

OMEGA

Already, Majestron, I know youíre...

52. PAN around the warehouse as OMEGA inspects it.

OMEGA (contíd)

...not using "Kingdom Come Storage and Shipping" as a front after all.

53. MCU: OMEGA

OMEGA ponders

OMEGA (contíd)

Whatever happened to the good olí days when the villains made it easy?

CUT TO:

MAJESTRONís THRONE ROOM.

54. MCU: THE PRINCE

THE PRINCE is grimacing in the foreground as a slightly out of focus MAJESTRON and THE DEACON converse in the background. His anger and frustration grows the longer the shot lingers. BLOOM dances back into the shot.

Rage builds in the PRINCEís face and he finally slams the throne with a backhanded punch and knocks into a wall.

55. MED. SHOT - THE PRINCE frustrated, faces MAJESTRON who senses rebellion in the air and is suddenly angry.

56. CU - THE PRINCE

THE PRINCE

Canít you see that theyíre playing you for a fool, father?

57. WIDER SHOT. MAJESTRON is getting pissed. Energy begins to build around his fist. THE PRINCE doesnít see it coming.

THE PRINCE (contíd)

We were born to rule! But now weíre been used as pawns by this... third-rate bogeyman!

The final word is cut short. MAJESTRON blasts the PRINCE with a wave of energy reminiscent of someone from DRAGON BALL Z. THE PRINCE is blasted backwards, through a wall, and then he goes tumbling into a courtyard with many flowers.

58. THE PRINCE, on the ground, groans. His costume is tattered and smoking. MAJESTRON steps toward him, his motion ominous and heavy.

59. MAJESTRON grabs the PRINCE by the collar and hoists him off the ground like a toy.

MAJESTRON

(controlled anger)

You touched our throne.

60. MAJESTRON hurls the PRINCE out of the courtyard with a mighty one-handed throw.

61. THE PRINCE picks himself off the ground, and, with as much dignity as he can muster, bows to acknowledge his fatherís supremacy, then flies away.

62. TWO SHOT, DEACON and MAJESTRON, observing the PRINCEís departure.

DEACON

What is that old saying, Majestron? "Spare the rod and spoil the child?"

MAJESTRON

You misjudge me, Deacon. This was no an act of discipline.

DEACON

You deliberately angered him?

(beat)

You are devious.

MAJESTRON smiles broadly.

CUT TO:

63. THE PRINCE, IN A FOUL MOOD, flying over the city

THE PRINCE

(to himself)

He treats the palace servants better than I. He treats the people who clean up his garbage better than I...

THE PRINCE takes his scepter and fires at a garbage bin.

THE PRINCE (contíd)

...well, itís about time he remembered Iím a Prince!

He blasts again.

THE PRINCE (contíd)

One step removed from a king!

Blasts again.

THE PRINCE (contíd)

I will be a king! And one day, I shall pluck the crown from the top of his head and sever it!

64. ANOTHER VIEW. We clearly see OMEGA behind the PRINCE.

OMEGA

(from behind)

I hate to interrupt a perfectly good Oedipus complex at work, but I owe you this...

THE PRINCE turns around. OMEGA clocks him.

65. MED. SHOT

THE PRINCE goes flying backward through the alley, into a garbage bin. He wipes himself off, gets to his feet.

66. An APPROACH SHOT, P.O.V. staying steady behind OMEGAís neck.

OMEGA flies in.

OMEGA (contíd)

Letís talk about daddy and his latest hijinks.

OMEGA tries to smash the PRINCE with a wild right cross. THE PRINCE blocks it with his scepter, pours green energy from it, and momentarily paralyzes OMEGA.

67. TWO-SHOT

The PRINCE smiles broadly.

THE PRINCE

Iíve got a better idea...

THE PRINCE builds up the energy in his scepter and lets OMEGA fly.

68. PAN to follow OMEGA

OMEGA tumbles into the side of a building, rises out of the rubble, spreads his arms wide, and the symbol on his chest glows. Little glowing Omega signs suddenly appear in clusters around him...

69. MED. SHOT of the PRINCE

The Omega signs materialize in all directions around the PRINCE. The PRINCE tries to ward them away with his scepter, only to realize theyíre intended as a distraction. OMEGA flies in grabs the scepter.

70. MED. SHOT OMEGA.

OMEGA holds the sceptre high above his head, ready to break it over his knee.

OMEGA (contíd)

Without daddyís little scepter, you ainít worth spit.

71. WIDER VIEW

The PRINCE makes a gesture, and suddenly the sceptre accelerates like a rocket, smashing OMEGA into a wall, and then a second time.

72. CU- THE PRINCE

THE PRINCE

Wrong, as usual, Omega.

73. - WIDER SHOT

The rocket brings OMEGA on a general vector toward the PRINCE. He lets go of the rocket, tackles the PRINCE and, sitting on top of him, begins to hammer the PRINCE with a repeated pounding of right hands.

OMEGA

Whereís daddy?

He continues to punch the PRINCE.

OMEGA (contíd)

If you hate his guts so much, tell me where he is!

OMEGA, breathing hard lets up for a moment. THE PRINCE spits on him.

PRINCE

Iíd never betray him to a peasant like you.

(emphatic)

Never.

74. REACTION shot from OMEGA. Thereís anger there, but he realizes the PRINCE is telling him the truth.

75. DISTANCE shot of the SCEPTER turning around and coming back for another pass at OMEGA.

76. MED SHOT: OMEGA. enough space to show the area behind him.

OMEGA notices the SCEPTER, quickly turns his head back to the PRINCE so he wonít be suspicious, and closes his eyes as he deliberately allows himself to be clocked by it.

77. ANOTHER ANGLE.

OMEGA is knocked forward, and slams hard into a wall.

78. MED. SHOT, THE PRINCE

THE PRINCE gets to his feet. The scepter flies back into his hand. As OMEGA struggles to his feet, he points the scepter at OMEGA and blasts him.

OMEGA

Aaargh!

79. MED. SHOT: OMEGA

OMEGA is knocked down, his costume is torn and smoking. He struggles back to his feet. THE PRINCE blasts him again.

OMEGA (contíd)

Aaaargh!

80. CU- the PRINCE

The PRINCE smiles with extreme confidence in his victory.

PRINCE

Stupid brat. Did you really expect to beat me?

81. WIDE SHOT

OMEGA struggles to his feet.

OMEGA

Go to... (Hell)

THE PRINCE trains a final blast at him.

OMEGA (contíd)

Aaaargh!

He falls down unconscious. THE PRINCE stands over him and smirks over his body, perhaps prodding it contemptuously with his foot.

PRINCE

I canít believe my father actually considers you a threat.

(beat)

Youíre barely even a nuisance.

82. ANOTHER ANGLE

The PRINCE flies away.

83. WIDE SHOT

EMILY and CHARLIE rush up to OMEGA

EMILY

Tommy!

EMILY puts his arms around OMEGA.

84. TWO-SHOT EMILY and OMEGA

EMILY (contíd)

Tommy, wake up! Címon Tommy, you canít let him beat you...

OMEGA feigning unconsciousness, canít suppress a smile. EMILY notices, and lets him drop. OMEGAís head hits the concrete hard; it bonks, but not comically.

OMEGA

(amused)

Heh.

85. MED SHOT

OMEGA slowly gets to his feet. EMILY, hands on her hips, scolds him as fiercely as she can.

EMILY

Tommy Champion, one of these days Iím gonna...

She pokes a finger in his chest. He says nothing, but grins.

CHARLIE

Uh, youíd better take a number, Em, because thereís a whole lot of people ahead of you in line.

86. WIDER SHOT

CHARLIE (contíd)

What are you smiling about? Princie-boy just beat the living tar out of you.

OMEGA

Sometimes you gotta lose the battle...

He holds out his hand. A hologram showing the PRINCE in flight.

87. CU: THE HOLOGRAM

OMEGA (O.C.)

...to win the massacre.

88. TWO-SHOT EMILY and OMEGA

EMILY

Youíre tracking him!

OMEGA

Fido wasnít about to tell me where Majestron is, so....

(pause)

You guys get the dish on the dish?

CHARLIE

Itís called the bowl of Iscarion. Some 16th Century Abbot made it.

EMILY

Itís said to control the hearts of man. Anyone who drinks of its milk...

 

89. ANOTHER ANGLE

OMEGA repairs his costume with a thought. A glowing horizontal line runs up his body, and everything below it gets repaired.

OMEGA

So this is one time milk donít do a body good.

(beat)

If I break the thing, what happens?

CHARLIE

I dunno. Itís gone five hundred years without even getting a hairline crack. For all we know, itís indestructible.

OMEGA

(smiling, aware heís mangling grammar)

Good thing Omega can destruct the indestructible.

CHARLIE

Seriously, man. Majestron and the Deacon are the two baddest bad guys on the planet. They could clean even the Protectoratesí clock.

EMILY

Youíre out of your league... anybodyís league.

OMEGA

Maybe youíre right.

(pause)

But I ainít about to let either of those maniacs control the heart of a German Shepherd, let alone a Man.

90. WIDE SHOT.

Fanfare plays as OMEGA takes off from the ground, circles for a few seconds, then heads away in a direction toward the camera.

CHARLIE (V.O.)

Em, whatís a five letter word for "fool"?

EMILY (V.O.)

Shut up, Charlie.

END ACT TWO

The exterior of a church. Itís elaborate, modern, with sweeping arches and one stained glass window with the virgin Mary. The cross has been removed. THE MOON IS RISING

CUT TO:

INT. CHURCH. THE STAINED GLASS WINDOW

91. MOONLIGHT STRIKES THE WINDOW.

DEACON

Now, the moon is in position...

 

92. CU: WINDOW

As the moonlight hits the hands of the Virgin Mary, drops of milk start to drip down.

93. ECU: Pan

The milk drops begin to fill the pan, making a loud splatter sound as they strike the dish.

CUT TO:

94. CU: MAJESTRON

MAJESTRON

And this is the way the world ends...

95. CU: THE WINDOW

The PRINCE flies through it.

96. MED SHOT

THE PRINCE lands. MAJESTRON looks annoyed. THE DEACON notices the reaction and is amused.

THE PRINCE

Father! Omega is defeated! He knelt before me and called me "master"!

DEACON

How very unimportant... compared to the ritual you just interrupted.

THE PRINCE

(suddenly realizing heís not done good)

But father... your enemy... Omega...

96. ANOTHER ANGLE

MAJESTRONíS anger builds. He levels his scepter and a blinding streak of light comes out and encapsulates the PRINCE.

PRINCE

(screams)

Aiiiie!

97. TRACKING SHOT

THE PRINCE is rocketed backward through the church wall, through both walls of an adjacent chapel, and finally comes to rest near the foot of a large cross. He twitches.

98. CU: MAJESTRON

Majestronís scepter is smoking.

MAJESTRON

We are most displeased.

(beat)

Now, where is my bowl?

95. MCU: The broken window.

A flying figure with the OMEGA suit comes flying through the hole.

96. MED. SHOT: OMEGA

OMEGA holds the bowl triumphantly, puts his fingers into it, and draws a milk moustache above his mouth. He grins obnoxiously.

OMEGA

Got milk?

99. PAN TO A SHOT OF OUR ROGUEíS GALLERY FACING OFF WITH OMEGA

MAJESTRON

You...

OMEGA holds the bowl off to the side as if ready to smash it.

OMEGA

One false move, your Majesty, and the bowl gets it.

100. TWO-SHOT, OMEGA and MAJESTRON

MAJESTRON charges. He tries to smash OMEGA with his scepter. OMEGA dodges the blow.

OMEGA (contíd)

Too slow.

101. WIDE SHOT

OMEGA sets in a combat stance. MAJESTRON attempts to blast him. OMEGA dodges, while MAJESTRON futilely tracks him and continues to miss with his blaster fire.

102. TWO-SHOT: THE DEACON and BLOOM

BLOOM

May I?

DEACON

Why of course.

103. ECU: BLOOMíS HANDS

BLOOMíS hands become vampiric claws.

104. TWO-SHOT: BLOOM AND OMEGA

BLOOM takes several swings at OMEGA

105. MED. SHOT: OMEGA

Giving the bowl a fair bit of topspin, he tosses it. It bounces several times off various parts of the church, whacks BLOOM in the back of the head. BLOOM falls, then the bowl returns to TOMMY, where he, spinning it like a top, balances it on one finger even as he holds it under the spot where milk is dripping.

106. MCU: BLOOM

BLOOM holds the back of her head.

BLOOM

Ooo... Iím seeing stars... and they arenít even bloody...

107. MED. SHOT OMEGA

OMEGA

Whoís next?

MAJESTRON blasts OMEGA from behind

OMEGA (contíd)

Arrragh!

MAJESTRON

I am...

108. MCU: MAJESTRON

MAJESTRON (contíd)

Next to teach you a lesson in humility.

OMEGA

Argh!

The blast ends. OMEGA is left on the deck. MAJESTRON points his scepter at the dish and a blue beam shoots out. It levitates and flies into MAJESTRONís hand.

109. TWO-SHOT: MAJESTRON and BLOOM

BLOOM

May I?

MAJESTRON gives her an annoyed look, and blasts her unconscious.

MAJESTRON

No.

110. LONG TWO-SHOT, LETTERBOX

DEACON

You had no intention of honoring our alliance?

MAJESTRON

The State has supremacy over the Church - and the State, cíest moi.

111. MED. SHOT OMEGA

MAJESTRON goes over to OMEGA, lifts him up by the hair (eyes visibly rolling in his skull) and pours milk from the bowl down OMEGAíS throat.

OMEGA

Ohhhh...

OMEGA looks at MAJESTRON

MAJESTRON

I believe youíd like the Deacon dead.

(beat)

Indulge yourself.

OMEGA

(bowing)

Yes, your majesty...

OMEGA nearly keels over

OMEGA (contíd)

I need but a moment to recover my strength, My Lord.

MAJESTRON

Of course...

MAJESTRON smiles, draws closer to OMEGA, who takes in several deep breaths.

OMEGA

Thank-you, master. Nothing will give me greater pleasure...

He suddenly grabs the scepter and turns it on MAJESTRON

OMEGA

Except this!

MAJESTRON screams, and tries to fight the pain. He advances on OMEGA, and almost reaches him, but OMEGA glows, channels his power into the scepter, and MAJESTRON canít fight his own power and Omegaís combined.

112. Track MAJESTRON

Heís blasted out several holes and comes to rest next to the PRINCE. His armor is short-circuiting.

113. TWO-SHOT: THE PRINCE and MAJESTRON

MAJESTRON and THE PRINCE struggles to their feet - then MAJESTRONís armor completely blows several fuses and he falls, his armor surrounded by a nimbus of electricity. MAJESTRON shakily raises his gauntlet.

MAJESTRON

Help me... my son...

114. CU: THE PRINCE

Linger as the PRINCE looks down on his father. After 8-10 seconds, he spits on him and turns and walks away without looking back.

CUT TO:

115. INT. CHURCH

DEACON

You coated your stomach. Candle wax? Pepto-bismal?

116. MCU: OMEGA

OMEGA grabs the bowl. He uses his power on it, then hurls it like a frisbee and tosses it out of the church and out of sight.

OMEGA

I reduced its weight to that of a pebble. With my strength, that throw should take the bowl well out of orbit.

117. TWO-SHOT OMEGA and THE DEACON

PAN while keeping them both in frame to emphasize the conflict.

OMEGA (contíd)

You never intended to ally with Majestron.

DEACON

Actually, the prospect was quite intriguing, Omega, and I had to entertain it. But no, in the black pit of my blacker soul, I knew he was...flawed.

OMEGA

Of course this was a big joke to you, right? After all, you donít do milk, you do blood!

118. MCU: THE DEACON

BLOOM gets close to the DEACON and sprouts batwings. They wrap themselves around she and the DEACON. THE DEACON smiles and shakes his head as he chuckles.

DEACON

My dear Omega, donít you know that milk is blood?

He and BLOOM vanish into thin air, leaving OMEGA with a horrified expression on his face.

CUT TO:

EXT - NIGHT, Los Angeles, on the roof of OMEGAíS PENTHOUSE.

119. MED SHOT- OMEGA

OMEGA, in his TOMMY duds, is tossing pebbles into the air and then using his powers to incinerate them before they can fall to the street below. EMILY and CHARLIE walk over.

EMILY

Tommy! You win!

CHARLIE

Yeah. That was the sorriest excuse for an Armageddon I ever saw.

OMEGA

It wasnít an Armaggeddon.

(bitter outburst)

It was nothing!

OMEGA kicks the bucket that contains his pebbles and then incinerates them all in a single spectacular burst.

EMILY

Wow.

CHARLIE

Anger management courses anyone?

120. ANOTHER ANGLE

OMEGA advances angrily on Charlie.

OMEGA

How about a humor management course, jerk!

EMILY gets between them.

EMILY

Easy Tommy...

(turns to Charlie)

You too!

121. MCU: CHARLIE

CHARLIE

No. Bring him on!

(aside)

I donít need to keep this head on my shoulders.

122. CU: EMILY

EMILY

Maybe you didnít score the big win. But you survived. And when youíre dealing with enemies like the Deacon and Majestron...

OMEGA

...giving them a second chance just gets people hurt. Or killed.

He angrily flies away.

123. TWO-SHOT EMILY and CHARLIE

EMILY and CHARLIE watch as he flies away

CHARLIE

I hate to admit it, Em, but Sunshine Boy has a point.

EMILY

I know... I know... But wouldnít it be good to be wrong just once?

FADE TO BLACK.

 

Okay, letís see if I get this straight

Not only does my life get to be turned into a shitty cartoon, and not only do I have to interact with characters whom I donít even fucking know and who were probably spawned by some marketing shitheadís half-baked focus group, you manage to turn two of the biggest assholes on the planet (as well as the bitch who murdered my girlfriend) into characters cuddly enough to pimp some goddamn Taiwanese mutant plastic action figures, just so you can boost some goddamn New York toy companyís quarterly profits! What did I ever do to deserve this shit?

Oh fuck it. Just send me the fucking cheque.
