Defenders of Etheria- A New Ongoing Series.
Hi, I'm new here. Anyway, I wrote this prologue script for a planned ongoing series that takes place 200 years after the original series. It's basically a mashup of New Adventures and the He-Ro concept Lou Scheimer came up with. Anyway, enjoy.
Featuring: Cap'N Diamond-Eye, Teela [Secondaries: Webb, Rivet-Head, Statixx, Magmus, Skeletor]
Writer: Joker95. Artist: TBD
Summary: A group of Space Pirates come across the co-ordinates for a wormhole that leads to Greyskull. Hijinks ensue as Cap'N Diamond-Eye sets a chain of events in motion.
Panel#1: [We see the exterior of Castle Greyskull]
Cap'N Diamond-Eye: [Speech Bubble] At last, we're here.
Panel#2: [We see Cap'N Diamond-Eye, along with his crew-Webb, Rivet-Head, Statixx and Magmus- teleporting on the land bridge between Greyskull and the mainland]
Cap'N Diamond-Eye: [Confident Speech] 'Tis been several hours since we left Primus, and now we've arrived at our destination. Rivet-'ead.
[Half-panel, Rivet-Head is holding what looks like a rocket launcher on his shoulder-
Cap'N Diamond-Eye [Speech Bubble] Make us an entrance. We 'ave a 'special' meeting with the owner of this rock
Panel#3: [Rivet-Heat pulls the trigger, firing the rocket launcher]
Panel#4: [the rocket hits the drawbridge, resulting in a large explosion that doesn't damage the Castle's walls, but unhooks the drawbridge]
[Half-panel, the drawbridge collapses, leaving the castle wide open]
Panel#5: [Cap'N Diamond-Eye, seeing an oppourtunity, unsheathes his twin-bladed weapon before turning towards his underlings]
Cap'N Diamond Eye: [yelling] "Avast, Mutants o' Primus! Tonight, we take this forsaken castle and all of its' riches fer our own! Fer fortune and evil!
[Half-Panel, the other pirates unsheath their weapons before running toward the Drawbridge to seize this rare opportunity.]
Panel#6: [Inside the Castle, we see a familiar face sitting on the Sorceress' throne-it's Teela, wearing the Snake headdress.]
[Half-panel, we see a close-up of Teela's face, showing surprise when she senses an intruder inside Castle Greyskull]
Panel#7: [In the halls of Greyskull, Cap'N Diamond-Eye comes across an empty room.]
Panel#8: Statixx: [Sarcasm] Wonderful find, Captain.
[Half-panel, Cap'N Diamond Eye snarls at Statixx]
Cap'N Diamond-Eye [Speech Bubble] Watch yer tone, Statixx. It just so 'appens we've come across the right place.
Panel#9: [Teela hurries down the corridor, snake staff in hand as she shows desperation]
Teela: [Thought caption] I just hope I'm not too late.
Panel#10: [Cap'N Diamond-Eye sees a faint glowing light from across the room.]
Cap'N Diamond Eye: [pleased] Foller that glow.
Panel#11: [Teela suddenly arrives at the empty corridor.]
[Half-panel, she spots the glowing light, before rushing over to the glow.]
Teela: [shocked] No...no, no, no!
Panel#12: [After following the glow, Cap'N Diamond-Eye arrives at the glow's source; a dark purple seal adorned with the Mark of Greyskull-the Iron Cross on He-Man's Belt-]
Cap'N Diamond-Eye: Airachnos.
[Half-panel, Airachnos approaches the purple seal, carrying a weathered scroll as the Mutants watched with glee]
Panel#13: [As Airachnos reads from the scroll, the purple glowing light goes dim].
Airachnos: [In a trance] Ancient spirits of evil, heed my call. Let these fragile walls of Greyskull fall.
Panel#14: [Suddenly, Teela arrives, wielding the staff in hand as she confronts the Pirates]
Teela: [Horrified] What have you done?!
Panel#15: [Cap'N Diamond-Eye sees Teela before brandishing his cutlass, smiling a toothy grin.]
Cap'N Diamond-Eye: Ah, ye be just in time, old one.
[Half-Panel, Teela brandishes the staff before readying herself to strike]
Teela: Child, you have no idea what you have unleashed. An evil far older than the cosmos, and one that cannot be tamed by the likes of you.
Panel#16: [A close-up of Diamond-Eye's face conveys that he knows full well what he's unleashed-and doesn't care.]
Cap'N Diamond-Eye: [smiles darkly] Aye, be be right, hag. Fer I've discovered somethin' more powerful than mere trinkets.
Panel#17: [Suddenly, the vault slowly begins to open, as two red eyes peer out from the void, just as the other Pirates watch in awe]
Cap'N Diamond-Eye: [Speech Bubble] Do not try t'sway me from this path. With this evil being freed, I can rejoice as he tears this world asunder. I imagine 'e would too.
Panel#17: [a yellow skeletal hand gripped one side of the door, pulling itself free from the void]
Cap'N Diamond-Eye: [Speech Bubble] Th' days of Greyskull are over, wench. No longer shall I have te stomach the knowledge that my ancestor will remain cooped up in limbo. Now...
Panel#18: [A full-page spread depicts the creature that has been freed from its' imprisonment-Skeletor.]
Cap'N Diamond-Eye: [Speech Bubble] Long live...Skeletor.
