  2. The Reluctant Superhero
  3.  
  4. (Station Square Technical College--Breezeway)
  5.  
  6. (Kyle is reading a "Music Man" comic book)
  7.  
  8. (Somebody snatches the comic right out of his hand... it's Trent!)
  9.  
  10. Trent: What's this...? "Music Man"?
  11. Kyle: I was reading that!
  12. Trent: Feh! Comic books are for babies and nerds!
  13. Kyle: Ah, tell it to Marvel!
  14.  
  15. (Trent scoffs and drops the issue on the ground and walks away)
  16.  
  17. (Later, Trent walks home)
  18.  
  19. Random Narrator: Little does Trent know, a large truck carrying several dozen drums of chemicals has lost control!
  20.  
  21. (The truck starts maneuvering erratically, a drum of chemicals breaks loose from its fittings and crashes on the pavement next to Trent. Trent gets splashed with aqua-colored liquid)
  22.  
  23. Trent: Ugh! What is this stuff?
  24. Kyle: Trent?
  25. Trent: What're you doing here?
  26. Kyle: I'm going home-- What happened?
  27.  
  28. (He sees the busted drum: it's labelled "Radioactive")
  29.  
  30. (Tails' Lab)
  31.  
  32. (Tails is scanning Trent, who is standing in a large cylinder in his underwear. A camera-like device rotates around the cylinder)
  33.  
  34. Kyle: Tails, Angie? What's the deal with Trent?
  35. Angie: Well, the chemicals only affected him, they won't harm us.
  36. Sonic: How did that affect Trent?
  37. Tails: Well, as incredible as it may sound. The chemicals enhanced his abilities. He's also developed new abilities.
  38. Rouge: What does that mean?
  39. Angie: It means, in short, that Trent has superpowers.
  40.  
  41. (Angie opens Trent's cylinder)
  42.  
  43. Shadow: Awesome! Now he can be a superhero!
  44. Trent: What are you talking about?
  45. Tails: Well, according to the scanner: his strength has increased ten-fold, he's impervious to bullets, he can shoot freezing bolts from his eyes, has X-Ray vision, he can shoot lasers from his fingertips, and his breath has the strength of a Category 4 Hurricane.
  46. Sonic: Sweet!
  47. Trent: Are you making this up?
  48. Tails: Enter the simulation room, and I'll let you practice.
  49.  
  50. (Trent goes in)
  51.  
  52. (A shooting range, akin to one seen at a carnival, complete with moving targets)
  53.  
  54. Trent: How do I shoot?
  55. Tails: Why're you asking me?
  56. Trent: Uh....
  57.  
  58. (Trent extends his right arm. He sticks out his index finger and thumb and aims at a target like a gun)
  59.  
  60. Trent: Fire!
  61.  
  62. (Nothing happens)
  63.  
  64. Trent: Shoot! ...Bang! ...Zing! ...Byooo! *Shrugs in frustration* Why isn't it working?
  65.  
  66. (Trent flicks his hand downward, finger still extendeded, then... a bolt of energy flies, fitting the target)
  67.  
  68. Trent: Huh?
  69.  
  70. (He does this again, it works)
  71.  
  72. Trent: Oh.
  73.  
  74. (He does this several times, taking out all the targets)
  75.  
  76. Trent: Ha ha!
  77.

  80. (Living Room)
  81.  
  82. (Trent's lying on the couch)
  83.  
  84. Joey: Okay, now you've got all your superpowers down pat. Now you can be a superhero!
  85. Trent: Forget it, just because I have superpowers doesn't mean I'm going gallavanting around Station Square in tights. I'm not gonna be a superhero, heck, I'm not even gonna be a supervillain!
  86. Pine: Be a superhero!
  87. Trent: No!
  88. Shadow: You'll fight for Truth, Justice, and Honesty!
  89. Trent: Phhh! Who believes in that stuff anymore? ESPECIALLY in the States!
  90. Sonic: You could get a comic based on your adventures!
  91. Trent: You can forget about it!
  92. Kyle: *Whispers into Trent's ear* You'll meet girls!
  93. Trent: I'M IN!
  94.

  98.  
  99. Trent: Name, name, name...
  100. Knuckles: Veren?
  101. Tails: Huh?
  102. Knuckles: It sounds cool!
  103. Trent: Nah!
  104. Knuckles: Xeron? Arex?
  105. Rouge: Good-Man?
  106. Knuckles: Come on, Rouge, that doesn't sound very cool.
  107. Sonic: Man Man!
  108.  
  109. (Everyone blankly stares at Sonic)
  110.  
  111. Sonic: A lot of superheroes have "Man" in their name!
  112. Trent: That's no good!
  113. Shadow: Think, Shadow... I got it! Laser Man!
  114. Kids: Laser Man?
  115. Shadow: He can shoot lasers from his fingers and stuff!
  116. Trent: "Laser Man"? That'll work!
  117. Amy: Now you need a costume!
  118. Trent: Forget it! I AM NOT wearing tights and a cape!
  119. Shadow: Who said anything about that? We'll just make a mask for you!
  120.  
  121. (Dramatic spinning transition)
  122.  
  123. (Trent is wearing a black and dark purple mask, hiding the hair, nose, and ears. Only the chin is exposed. On the forehead of the mask is an orange-gold "L" with white outline)
  124.  
  125. Tails: Now for a wardrobe!
  126. Joey: Will you wear this?
  127.  
  128. (Joey holds a red overcoat one hand, a pair of red pumps in the other, and has a red hat on his head)
  129.  
  130. Trent: I AIN'T WEARING A DRESS!
  131. Joey: Come on, nobody'll expect an old lady to kick their butts! It's the perfect disguise!

  133. Tails: Well, maybe some kinda casual clothing!
  134.  
  135. (Dramatic spinning transition)
  136.  
  137. (Trent is wearing blue jeans, a white t-shirt, and a leather jacket in addition to the mask)
  138.  
  139. Trent: Now this is what I'm talking about!
  140. Rouge: Now what?
  141. Kyle: We'll put him to the test! We'll find a crime!
  142. Pine: How'll we do that?
  143.  
  144. (Dramatic spinning transition)
  145.  
  146. (The kids, Trent, and Kyle are sitting around listening to the radio. Generic teen dance music is playing--think sixties sitcom-style teen party BGM)
  147.  
  148. (Trent's already looking annoyed by the music)
  149.  
  150. Trent: Oh, end already! This same song's been looping for over an hour!
  151. Kyle: Actually, WE'VE been listening for an hour. THE SONG's been playing non-stop since the late 1950's!
  152. Trent: Who in their right mind would do that!?
  153. Kyle: American TV studios making sit-coms.
  154.

  166.  
  167. Trent: Come on! Fly!
  168. Tails: You can't.
  169. Trent: WHAT!?
  170. Tails: It's not one of your superpowers.
  171. Trent: You mean I'm ten times stronger, I can resist gunfire, shoot lasers from my fingers and eyes, but can't even fly!?

  188. Sheriff: Who the heck are you!?
  189. Trent: I'm Laserman, and I'm here to save the day.
  190. Sheriff: Kid, you can't just put on a mask and just say you're a superhero!
  191.  
  192. (Trent goes toward the bank)
