Human Torch - Light Up the World - J.D. Coughlan
Panel 1: Establishing shot of an icy wasteland on an alien planet. Maybe put two moons in the sky or something to show it's not Earth. It should look very cold and hellishly windy. There is a small group of travellers making their way through the snow.
JOHNNY (CAP): They say I'm the irresponsible one.
Panel 2: Closer on the alien travellers now. Wrapped up tight in arctic gear. One of them is stumbling over, the others look to him in alarm.
JOHNNY (CAP): That I'm only in this game for the fun, the fame, the girls.
Panel 3: The other travellers gather around their fallen comrade, helping him up. He gestures to them, "go on without me." Some of them look to each other in hopelessness. Even if they leave him, they may not survive.
JOHNNY (CAP): And, sure, that stuff's cool...
Panel 4: Same shot, but now there is a light shining down on them. They look to its off-panel source in awe. Some of the snow around them is beginning to melt.
JOHNNY (CAP): But if that's all I wanted, I'd just go on some crappy reality TV show.
Panel 5: Large. Johnny, in flame-on mode, hovers over the travellers, smiling.
JOHNNY (CAP): Truth is, helping people...
JOHNNY (CAP): Well that just warms my heart.
