Powers - Work's a Beach - P. A. Nolte
1/ A monitor. Three aquatic villains stand amid sand dunes with waves crashing softly behind them. Civilians in swimsuits and other summer clothes scatter in panic.
Walker (OP): They did what?
Jeffreys (OP): Just walked onto the beach. Out of the ocean. Started making demands.
2/ The top of Jeffreys' head. He's one of the forensics for the Powers division. Detectives Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim hover behind him watching the same video.
Walker: Demands? Like what? What's he saying?
Jeffreys: Keeps asking for The Unholy Diver.
3/ Deena gives Walker a smirk. Walker tries to ignore her.
Pilgrim: Not a friend, huh?
Walker: Where'd this footage come from?
4/ Jeffreys has swiveled around in his chair.
Jeffreys: Some kid with a cell phone. You know the drill.
Jeffreys: Hell rains down and he goes for the viral video.
Jeffreys: Gotta love it.
Pilgrim: Do you?
Walker: Where are they now?
Jeffreys (OP): Who?
Walker: These guys. The-- What'd you call him?
6/ Back to the monitor.
Jeffreys (OP): Commodore Kraken. Guy on the left calls himself The Urchin. The lady is something... baroness? Amphibibaroness? Something dumb.
Walker (OP): Where are they now?
Jeffreys (OP): Oh, you're gonna love this...
