The Simpsons - Radioactive Man Begins - J.D. Coughlan
Panel 1: A young child, 9 or 10, lying on the floor of a cave, having just fallen. The cave is lit only by some barrels marked with the "radioactive" symbol, giving off a faint glow. The child shields his eyes.
CAPTION: "What do you fear?"
Panel 2: A man, the now-adult Claude Kane from the first panel, stands shirtless in a dojo, surrounded by men in radiation-proof suits, preparing to attack. Kane wields two glowing green rods.
CAPTION: "If you devote yourself to an ideal..."
Panel 3: Close up of Kane's hand as he puts on his glove. Note that his entire costume should be "Nolanised."
CAPTION: "If you make yourself more than just a man..."
Panel 4: Close up of Kane snapping together his utility belt.
CAPTION: "...you become something else entirely..."
Panel 5: Large. We see Kane in his full Radioactive Man suit for the first time. He looks bold, but broody.
CAPTION: (Large) "A RADIOACTIVE MAN!"
Panel 6: Slim but wide panel. Radioactive Man's silhouette stands atop a building, lit by the "Radioactive signal" in the sky behind him.
CAPTION: Coming this summer: RADIOACTIVE MAN BEGINS.

I love the wide variety of direction this week has taken thus far, and I think your script does the best job of making that point thus far - it's a script that's completely thematic and appropriate, and yet does it by ignoring the Simpsons clan entirely to instead focus on playing with perhaps the franchises premier fictional comic book property.ReplyDelete
Bravo, Mr. Coughlan. Well done.
