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.
