Eric O’Grady in "And The Winner Is..." by Danial Carroll
PANEL ONE, WIDE
Wide view of a fancy function room filled with many round tables. At each table is a team/group of Marvel's heroes, all in costume. Popular teams such as Avengers and X-Men should be in the foreground, and lesser-knowns at the back. Somewhere in the middle are the Secret Avengers. There is Sharon Carter, Eric O'Grady, Black Widow, War Machine, Moon Knight, Valkyrie, and Beast, whose exclusion from the X-Men tables will make sense due to Schism.
CAPTION: The 50th Annual Superhero Awards
Captain America is standing on stage behind a podium. He is opening an envelope.
CAPTAIN AMERICA: And the winner of Most Heroic Size-Manipulator goes to...
Close up of Cap, smiling.
CAPTAIN AMERICA: Stature!
In the background we can see Cap shaking Stature's hand as she approaches the podium. In the foreground is the Secret Avengers' table. The crowd in between are cheering and clapping. Eric is looking to the stage with has his arms up in disapproval. The rest of the table are looking at him--Sharon is scowling.
SFX: CLAP CLAP CLAP CHEER CLAP WHOOOOO CLAP CLAP CHEER
ERIC O'GRADY: Are you serious?
ERIC O'GRADY: Boooooooo.
SHARON CARTER: Eric!
Close on just the group now. Eric has turned to face them.
ERIC O'GRADY: Seriously! What's she got that I don't?
WAR MACHINE: Morals.
BLACK WIDOW: A sense of decency--
PANEL SIX, WIDE
Extreme close up of Eric's eyes, looking extremely surly.
ERIC O'GRADY/COLD: You can stop any time.
