Panel 1: A Flying ‘DOOM CASTLE’ sits in the air not far from a ye old style city.
LORD VILLAIN (1): (From Castle) Muah ha ha!
LORD VILLAIN (2): (From Castle) Once the city of Rigor falls, what can stand between me and the conquest of all cities beyond it?!
LORD VILLAIN (3): (From Castle) FIRE THE CANNON OF DESPAIR!
Panel 2: A beam of energy fires from the castle toward the city. The beam is made up of dark, foreboding, energy, but it stopped before it can hit the city by a brightly lit barrier of light and counter-energy.
SFX: (From dark energy) DESPAAAAAAAAAAAIR!!!
Panel 3: LORD VILLAIN, looking down from a balcony on the Doom Castle at the beam of despair as it’s blocked by the energy barrier.
LORD VILLAIN (1): What?!
LORD VILLAIN (2): What is the meaning of this!?
LORD VILLAIN (3): I demand an explanation!
Panel 4: Inside RIGOR, where SIR HEROIC and GOVERNOR FLYNN stand on top of a building watching as the beam of despair continues to hit the energy barrier.
GOVERNOR FLYNN: You’ve done it, Sir Heroic! We’re saved!
SIR HEROIC: All in a days work, Governor!
Panel 5: GOVERNOR FLYNN continues to converse with SIR HEROIC.
GOVERNOR FLYNN (1): So how do you plan to stop Lord Villain and his Cannon of Despair for good?
SIR HEROIC (1): Uh…I don’t actually have a plan for that yet.
GOVERNOR FLYNN (2): What?!
SIR HEROIC (2): I was mostly focused on saving the city and figured I work out the next part later.
Panel 6: SIR HEROIC places a hand on GOVERNOR FLYNN’s shoulder as he puts on a look of determination.
SIR HEROIC: But I’m sure that if you and the citizens of this town hope for a solution to present itself hard enough, it’ll be more than enough to keep this Shield of Hope operational until I’ve figured out a solution to the problem!
