Milestone – Against, If Not With – MK Stangeland, Jr.

(5 Panels)

Panel 1: TV screen image, a newscast. On the screen is a BLM-style protest of the worst kind.

TV NARRATION: …the protests grew more violent last night, with little sign of letting up.

Panel 2: TV image, same newscast. Rioters attacking a store.

TV NARRATION: Property damage has grown unchecked as the worst of the protestors run rampant and criminals seek to take advantage of the unrest.

Panel 3: Two-part panel, one with a TV newscast of ICON trying to subdue the looters who are destroying and stealing property, the second showing ROCKET trying to do the same thing.

TV NARRATION: While local heroes Icon and Rocket have attempted to minimize the damage, both have been overwhelmed by the sheer number of looters and rioters, especially as they both appear to be trying to avoid attacking those who aren’t committing any criminal acts.

Panel 4: TV image of a reporter trying to get an interview or soundbite from ICON, but with ICON trying to push on and ignore them in the interests of helping control the situation.

TV NARRATION: While Icon was unwilling to agree to an interview, he did offer this comment:

ICON: I’m not here to stand with or against the protestors. I merely seek to uphold the law and protect the innocent.

Panel 5: A protest leader, who is more than happy to give his time to the camera. He doesn’t look happy.

TV NARRATION: Not all were happy with this Icon’s refusal to take a stance on the issue, however.

PROTESTOR (1): Icon and Rocket are nothing more than SELLOUTS!

PROTESTOR (2):  If they really cared, they’d be out here with us and taking a stand against the crimes and oppression that are perpetrated against the innocent every day!

PROTESTOR (3): Mark my words, they’re both slaves of a system that wants nothing more than to keep us down!
