1.1: Interior, S.T.A.R. Labs. Metamorpho sitting on an examination table, legs dangling over the edge. Dr. Silas Stone, Cyborg’s lab-coat clad father, is standing in front of him, an iPad looking medical pad in his hands.
Metamorpho: Give it to me straight, Doc.
Dr. Stone: We’ve done everything we could. S.T.A.R. Labs has broken this down to the molecular level, and the prognosis is clear . . .
Dr. Stone: Your DNA can be spliced into anyone using nano-genomics, recode the rogue cells, and eliminate all human disease.
1.2: Metamorpho’s face, shocked in happy disbelief.
Dr. Stone (caption): “Metamorpho - you’re going to save billions of lives.”
1.3: Exterior, day, a beautiful park in Metropolis. It’s the unveiling of a statue of Metamorpho, arms akimbo, feet spread, the classic super-hero pose. Below, on a podium, the real Metamorpho is shaking hands with a Mayoral figure; Superman and Wonder Woman are standing off to the side, smiling and clapping. Dr. Stone and his team from STAR Labs are also on the podium, clapping along with everyone else. The crowd has their backs to the reader, also cheering.
Metamorpho (caption): And just like that, the Earth was done getting sick. Sure, people still died.
1.4: Metamorpho shaking hands with Wonder Woman while Superman looks on.
Metamorpho (caption): Not all of us can be immortal.
1.5: Metamorpho walking away from the reader, the crowd parting in his wake, some folks patting him on the back as he leaves his own party.
Metamorpho (caption): Everyone was calling me a “savior”, but they had no idea how many times I’d earned that title before . . .
1.6: Flashback, exterior, day. Metamorpho leading the team of old school 1980’s Outsiders, rushing headlong into battle, surrounded by laser beams and explosions.
Metamorpho (caption): As an outsider.
