Plot

[The camera shows a bunch of soldiers running down a street. They are wearing ancient forms of armor and the city is ancient looking. The camera cuts forward to a man running away from them. He cuts down a back alley and then enters a hut. A woman is standing across from him.]

[Woman]: Did they follow you?

[Man]: Yes, but luckily I lost them...

[Woman]: And did you get it?

[He takes out the Mirror of the Stars.]

[Man]: Yes, I did... soon, my journey will be complete. Soon, I will take my place at the throne...

[Woman]: Good luck...

[Man]: It's not time yet...

[Woman]: What?

[Man]: There's something I need to do first...

[Woman]: What is it?

[Man]: I need an heir...

[Woman]: Show me your real face...

[The man takes off his mask revealing himself to be Rigon.]

[Rigon]: I don't like to be in this form around you...

[Woman]: It doesn't bother me much...

[Rigon]: Once I'm through with that hero he will pay for what he did to me!

[The camera cuts to Sci, sleeping in a bed at the barracks of the Plumber base in Fellson City. He is twisting and turning until he eventually jumps out of bed and blasts fire in front of him.]

 
Fellson City
April 29, 2014, 6:03 AM EDT

[Sci]: Who--

[He looks around and then blasts the burning wall with a current of air. He jumps back onto the bed and lays down.]

[Sci]: The pain... the misery... It won't go away... There's just too much going on... The Invasion... The Sages... The Sword... The Prophecy... AGH!

[He leans forward and then jumps up and flips his bed.]

[Sci, enraged]: I WISH I HAD LET THE WALL BURN! I WISH I HAD LET EVERYTHING BURN! I WILL MAKE EVERYTHING BURN

[He blasts fire all around him. The smell of smoke and Sci screaming is loud enough to wake Paper. He notices Sci rampaging through out the room.]

[Paper, shouting]: Sci! It's Rigon! What happened!

[Sci, enraged]: YOU! YOU ARE THE ONE WHO BROUGHT ME INTO THIS?

[Paper, trying to remain calm]: What did I do?

[Sci, enraged]: YOU WANTED ME TO STAY ON YOUR SIDE! I WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER OFF JOINING THE ELITE! SO I THINK I WILL!

[Sci blasts fire at Paper, but he avoids. The fire blasts set Paper's bed on fire.]

[Paper]: DUDE! Look at what you're doing! You need to stop this!

[Sci looks at Paper and then the flames on his hands go out. He falls back and faints but Paper catches him. The door opens and Hornbok, Future Paper, Future Toon, and Relgo walk in.]

[Future Toon]: Oh my...

[Relgo]: They're getting worse...

[Future Toon and Relgo run over to Paper and Sci. Hornbok and Future Paper follow slowly behind.]

[Paper]: Is the attack called off?

[Hornbok]: No, we need to attack today, but unfortunately, we can't risk bringing Sci. If Rigon controls him when he's that close to the Elite, we may never get him back...

[Paper carefully places Sci on an empty bed and then takes a few steps back before sitting down.]

[Future Paper]: And remember, Fear said that before you go, he wanted you to pass his trial...

[Relgo]: Our plan is falling apart...

[Hornbok]: We'll need to make a minor change in plans then... Paper, Sci, and Future Paper, you will stay here. Everyone else, and I mean everyone else, all the Magisters, all the other recruits, present and Future, Ben Tennyson and his team, and any other ally we can find, is going to the Academy. If we're not going to bring two of our strongest men, then we're going to make sure that we have enough to make it up!

[Theme Song]

[The camera cuts to Paper, Sci, Future Paper, and Fear in the main room of the base.]

[Fear]: Are you ready for your trial?

[Paper]: Yes.

[Fear]: I'm assuming you remember how this works?

[Paper]: Yeah, spiritual plain, body can't be moved, yeah... Can we go....

[Fear]: Right away...

[Fear grabs Paper's hands. They instantly arrive on the Spiritual Plain.]

[Fear]: Let us begin...

[Fear begins to walk in one direction as Paper follows. After a moment, a dark tentacle reaches through the floor and drags Fear underneath. Paper stops in his place.]

[Paper]: Fear...?

[Paper turns around and finds another tentacle behind him. He quickly turns around and begins to run. Tentacles reach through the floor and try to grab at him, but he dodges everyone.]

[Paper]: Wait, this is the trial of fear...

[He stops in place, and just as one of the tentacles is about to grab him, there is a violent shaking and everything begins to turn dark.]

[Paper]: What?

[There is a loud noise and Paper puts his hands on his head. He falls over.]

[Paper]: What's happening?

[The camera cuts to the base. The Sentinels have arrived. Rob has thrown Paper and Fear's bodies against the wall.]

[Future Paper]: We have to protect the bodies!

[Sci]: Right!

[Sci creates a wall of fire in front of Paper and Fear. He blasts fireballs at the Sentinels but the all avoid and blast red energy at Sci. He jumps at Rob and kicks him back. Water runs in and tackles him to the ground. Future Paper fires arrows at Bink, but she avoids. She blasts red energy at Future Paper but he avoids and then kicks her in the face. Rob grabs him from behind and throws him to the ground. He runs over to Sci and punches him in the face. The three sentinels walk over to the fire near Paper and Fear, but after a moment they turn away and leave the base.]

[Sci, waking up]: Where'd they go?

[Future Paper]: The Elite must be in the final steps of their invasion... They would have tried to kill Paper...

[Sci]: Final steps? Already?

[Future Paper]: Yes! They're about to set up The Grid.

[Sci]: What's that?

[Future Paper]: The Grid is a planet wide security system that includes a force field that lets stuff leave, but only lets somethings enter. It also includes a network of transportation throughout the underground.

[Sci]: There's something you're not telling me, though...

[Future Paper]: I never thought it would come to this, but another thing the Grid does, is control a robotic army that the Elite can use to make sure that no one tries to rise up. Once the Grid is connected to four locations and is activated, the robotic army can then be controlled and the whole world gets placed under lockdown by it. The army won't let anyone out of their homes...

[Sci]: Why'd they design it that way?

[Future Paper]: They didn't. The Grid is an ancient method used by the likes of the Incursions, at least during their prime. It must have cost them a lot of money to find a Grid small enough to place on the Earth...

[Sci]: No, but why does it have to connect to four locations?

[Future Paper]: I don't know, but I do know that destroying the attachments at those four locations will cut off defenses to the fifth pod, which acts as the central unit, allowing it to be attacked and destroyed. There's no way we can destroy all four before they're able to repair one of them...

[Sci]: What if we knew where they were be placed and we stopped one of them.

[Future Paper]: That may work... But we have no idea where they are being placed...

[Sci]: But we have three Sentinels that do.

[Future Paper]: Great, let's get started then...

[Sci and Future Paper run off in the direction of the Sentinels, leaving Fear and Paper behind. The camera cuts to two ships flying through space. After a moment, the camera cuts to inside one of them, where most of the recruits and Magisters are waiting to arrive at the Villain's Academy.]

[Hornbok]: This is it. The moment of truth. A victory today will ensure the safety of the Earth...

[Brian]: But it won't end the war... We know it won't...

[Hornbok]: Today is only about saving the Earth... we can worry about the galaxy another time... Once we arrive at the Academy, we will need to sneak in and make sure that everyone is where they need to be. Now does everyone remember their locations?

[All]: Sir, yes sir!

[Hornbok]: Once the lobby, the tower, Lucifer's office, and the balcony are all secure, Ben's team will move in and begin the assault. They may try to call for help, but as long as we follow these guidelines it will never reach them.

[There is a beep and a screen with Ben Tennyson's face appears on it.]

[Ben Tennyson]: We've arrived...

[Hornbok looks past the screen and sees the Villain's Academy in the distance.]

[Hornbok]: Then let's get started...

[The camera shows the two ships landing. All the recruits, Magisters, and members of Ben's team get out. Future Toon stays on the ship.]

 
Villain's Academy
April 29, 2014, 12:19 PM EDT

[Hornbok]: Aren't you coming...

[Future Toon]: I'm not feeling too well, besides, I think I'll just protect the ship...

[Hornbok]: Alright...

[Toon]: I know we say this a lot, but this is our most important mission so far... Let us make it a good one...

[Toon, Aevan, Jack, and Slick run off in one direction, Nick, Sub, Zon, and Ivada in another, Brian, Cassie, Nar, and Relgo in another direction, and Will, Ben, Hornbok, and Kruto in the last direction. Ben's team stays and waits.]

[Ben Tennyson]: Once we get the signal, it's hero time!

[The camera cuts to Toon's group. Toon, Aevan, Jack, and Slick are running down the hallway. They haven't encountered any guards yet.]

[Aevan]: Place feels empty, doesn't it?

[Jack]: I doubt it is...

[A door in front of them opens and a bunch of Forever Knights and Salimorian Soldiers enter the hallway.]

[Jack]: Told you...

[Jack sends large bolts of electricity at the Knights and Salimorians. He avoids a punch from one Knight and then kicks it and knocks another one over. He charges through a bunch and then gets zapped by a Salimorian's energy baton. Aevan launches his shadow and takes out a bunch of the soldiers but then two knights jump at him and fire blasts out of their gun at him. Another knight jumps at Aevan and knocks him against the wall. Toon sends a fire cloud down the hallway. The knights and Salimorians put up their shields to block it, but some still get knocked back. Slick jumps at the soldiers and crushes them against the wall. Toon roundhouses one, lands and then rushes to attack another.]

[Toon]: This is fun and all, but we have to keep moving...

[Jack]: Toon's right... We have to get to the upper floor and reach the balcony.

[Aevan]: Then's let's try this....

[Aevan launches his shadow again and takes out the rest of the Knights. The few remaining Salimorians fire their blasters at the recruits but Jack jumps and blasts electricity at them. Three of them fall down, but the other two keep blasting. Toon jumps and bounces off the wall before kicking one in the face and tackling the other.]

[Slick]: And everything behind us is clear?

[Jack]: Look's like it...

[Slick]: Then let's try and find the balcony...

[They continue to walk forward down the hallway until they reach a staircase. At the staircase, they find some Knights but Aevan launches his shadow at them and quickly takes them out. They head through the door and up the stairs. They arrive at a room with two transparent, automatic sliding doors. They walk up to the doors and they open automatically. They head through and find themselves on the balcony.]

[Slick]: Here we are...

[He takes out his communicator.]

[Slick]: The balcony is secured...

[Toon]: I wouldn't be so sure about that...

[He points to a large army of Knights and Salimorians entering the balcony. They prepare for a fight as the camera cuts to Nick, Sub, Zon, and Ivada. They are running up a flight of stairs.; They eventually make it to a top and enter a long hallway.]

[Nick]: Lucifer's office should be at the end of the hallway.

[Ivada]: And the operation is making good progress overall. Slick and his team just arrived at the balcony.

[Sub]: But we're probably going to find some guards, right?

[Zon]: Hopefully. I'm in the mood to be some guys up..

[Voice]: Oh you won't be beating us up...

[Nick]: I know that voice... ANCY!

[Rex, appearing: And don't forget little old me!

[Rocket, appearing]: Or me!

[Ancy]: Shall we begin?

[Ancy turns his hands into swords and charges at the recruits. He slashes his swords at Nick who jumps back and avoids. He sends a steady stream of acid breathe at Ancy, but he shields it with his swords. Nick runs at Ancy and slashes with his claws before being knocked back by Ancy's swords. He extends his wings and charges at Ancy, picking him and taking him with him as Ancy tries to knock Nick's hands away. Meanwhile, Sub and Ivada are fighting Rocket. He is blasting charges of kinetic energy at them while Sub blocks with an ice shield. Ivada forms an ice sword and slashes it at Rocket, but he kicks Ivada onto the ground.]

[Rocket]: Too easy...

[He blasts more kinetic energy at Sub, who blocks with another ice shield. He jumps over the shield and then kicks Rocket in the face. He throws punch after punch at Rocket as he forces him backwards. He eventually forces him into a wall and then freezes him to it. The camera cuts to Rex fighting Zon. Rex forms the Smack Hands and tries to grab Zon, who is currently a vulpimancer. Zon jumps away from Rex and avoids a punch before pouncing on him. Rex picks him up and throws him behind him. He gets up and forms the Slam Cannon. He grabs a large chunk of the ground and fires it at Zon. He avoids and turns human. He starts to blast green energy at Rex until Rocket throws Sub at him and knocks them both to the ground. Zon and Sub go back to back and throw attacks at the villains they are fighting.]

[Zon]: Best fight ever...

[Sub]: Agreed...

[As they throw their attacks the villains, the villains attack them. Ivada gets up and blasts Rex and Rocket with ice. Ancy rams him as a bicycle, but then Nick tackles Ancy to the ground. Ivada gets up and avoids a punch from Rocket. He grabs Rex's punch and throws him into Rocket behind him. He covers them in ice while Sub covers Ancy in ice.]

[Nick]: Talk about an intense fight...

[Ivada]: Agreed, but it looks like Lucifer's office is all but secured...

[Sub]: Which leaves only one question... Where's Lucifer?

[Ivada]: I bet he's in the Academy somewhere...

[Ivada takes out his communicator.]

[Ivada]: Office secured...

[Ben Tennyson]: Good...

[The camera cuts to Ben and his team.]

[Ben Tennyson]: I just wish that Relgo and his team were having the same luck...

[The camera cuts to the lobby, which is fairly close to where Ben's team is. Brian, Nar, Cassie, and Relgo are unconscious on the floor with Lucifer and a large group of Knights and Salimorians standing across from them.]

[Commercial]

[A soldier walks up to Lucifer.]

[Soldier]: Sir shouldn't we take them with us?

[Lucifer]: To where, Earth? Earth is exactly where we don't want them... We need them as far away from the Earth as possible...

[Soldier]: Of course sir, but, where are we taking them?

[Lucifer]: Don't you worry about that. I know exactly where they should go...

[Be he looks up at Hornbok, Kruto, Will, and Ben running up the stairs in the tower that's base is the lobby.]

[Lucifer]: But first there are 4 other easy targets to get rid of...

[He begins to run up the stairs. The camera cuts to Will, Ben, Kruto, and Hornbok. All of the sudden, Lucifer jumps out in front of them.]

[Hornbok]: Lucifer...

[Lucifer]: Hello Hornbok... Good to have you back with the living...

[Hornbok]: I was never dead...

[Lucifer]: But you were the Black Knight, weren't you?

[Hornbok]: That's over with... We've got the upper hand now; the balcony and your office has already been secured...

[Lucifer]: But the lobby wasn't...

[They look down and see the recruits who were in the lobby unconscious on the ground.]

[Hornbok]: That's what you think...

[All of the sudden, the camera cuts to the lobby. The recruits and Relgo jump up and begin to fight their way through the soldiers. Brian turns into a gorilla and throws soldier after soldier into the wall. Three Knights blast their guns at him but he swipes his hand, knocking all of them to the side. Nar takes out his katanas and begins to slash his way through the soldiers. He bends the metal on the wall and traps a bunch of the soldiers in it. A knight kicks him from behind but he flips around and kicks them in the face. He slashes his swords at another knight. Cassie absorbs the energy from a soldier's baton and then blasts energy blasts at other soldiers. She kicks one but then gets kicked by a knight into the wall. Relgo jumps up and then punches his way through a bunch of soldiers. He makes a bunch of plants come out of the ground and trap even more soldiers. While they continue to fight, the camera cuts back to the top of the tower.]

[Lucifer]: Impossible...

[Hornbok steps forward and punches Lucifer in the face, knocking him down a flight of stairs. He jumps up and blasts magic attacks at Hornbok. While Hornbok fights Lucifer, Kruto, Will, and Ben run past him and get to the edge of the hallway leading to Lucifer's office. Kruto takes out a communicator.]

[Kruto]: Tower secured...

[Ben Tennyson]: And Slick's team has finished fighting off a large army at the balcony. The office is secured, so we just have to wait for Hornbok and his team to finish down here.

[Kruto]: Sounds good...

[The camera cuts to Ben Tennyson. He turns to the members of his team. They are Gwen Tennyson, Kevin Levin, Max Tennyson, Rook, Ester, Blukic, and Driba.]

[Ben Tennyson]: Alright, we're almost ready for Phase 2. Get the bomb ready...

[Rook, Blukic, and Driba head onto the ship to get the bomb. Hornbok runs up to Ben Tennyson.]

[Hornbok]: The tower is secure...

[Ben Tennyson]: Alright guys, it's hero time!

[The camera cuts to Sci and Future Paper back on Earth. They have followed the Sentinels all the way to Washington, D.C. They are running down the street. The Sentinels are far in front of them.]

 
Washington, D.C.
April 29, 2014, 5:07 PM EDT

[Sci]: Could D.C. be one of the four locations?

[Future Paper]: I'm pretty sure the locations were D.C., Siberia, Australia, and Brazil, with the center pod being located under the Mediterranean Sea.

[Sci]: Okay, well what do the pods look like!

[Future Paper]: They are round disks large enough to surround an entire city. Somewhere near the center there would be a central unit and a tower connecting to the apex of the pod.

[Sci]: Think they would try and put that right on top of the White House?

[Future Paper]: yes. the central unit is approximately the same size as the White House...

[Sci]: Then we better beat them there...

[Sci slows down and puts his arm in the air. He turns around and looks down the street.]

[Future Paper]: What are you doing?

[Sci]: Calling a taxi...

[A taxi stops in front of them. They get in.]

[Sci]: 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, please...

[The car drives off and they eventually pass the Sentinels on their way to the White House. They turn down a street and after a few more turns they arrive in front of the White House. The SWAT Team has been called in and a few Salimorian ships can be seen inside the fence.]

[Sci]: We're too late...

[Future Paper]: No we're not...

[Future Paper runs ahead of him and jumps over a barrier of fences the SWAT team made.]

[SWAT Lieutenant]: Hey, where do you think you're going?

[Future Paper doesn't respond. He bursts forward and jumps the fence to the White House. He takes out his bow and fires an explosive arrow at one of the ships, blowing it up.]

[SWAT Lieutenant, into his communicator]: We've got a runner...

[There is a reply that cannot be heard clearly.]

[SWAT Lieutenant]: Roger that...

[The camera cuts to Future Paper. He fires more explosive arrows at the Salimorian ships, blowing them up. He puts his bow away and sashes forward. He bursts through a door and then suddenly jumps to above the average human speed, as opposed to earlier when he was running at average speed. He bursts down the hallway and enters the oval office. He finds Ra'ol Set and a bunch of Salimorian soldiers surrounding the President and the Secret Service.]

[Ra'o Set]: Who are you?

[Future Paper]: You're worst nightmare...

[Ra'ol Set]: I don't have time for games. Tell me who you are and you will survive for now...

[Future Paper takes out his bow and aims it at Ra'ol Set.]

[Future Paper]: I'll give you a hint. I'm not from around here...

[Ra'ol Set]: Paper... I'm sad to see you back from so far in the future... It means you survive...

[Future Paper]: But no one else does... I've already changed parts of the time stream...

[Ra'ol Set]: Well we've had a nice chat, but I have higher priorities...

[Future Paper]: Like what...

[Ra'ol Set]: The death of the President...

[He raises his hand and aims a blaster in the palm of his hand at the President.]

[Ra'ol Set]: Put you're weapon down, and he may survive...

[Future Paper doesn't move.]

[Ra'ol Set]: Then his fate has been sealed...

[Ra'ol Set fires his blaster, but an earth wall appears in front of it and blocks it. Ra'ol Set looks around and then eventually gets hit by a boulder that crashes through the window behind the President. The Secret Service grab the President and take him out through the window as Sci jumps in and throws a large fire could at Ra'ol Set. Future Paper finally fires his exploding arrow at Ra'ol Set. It explodes and knocks him through the wall. Future Paper rushes at him and punches him but Ra'ol Set grabs his fist and throws him to the side. Sci blasts an air current at Ra'ol Set, but he avoids and jumps up.]

[Ra'ol Set]: The President is gone, so I am, too...

[He disappears.]

[Sci]: Come on, we have to head back outside...

[Sci helps Future Paper up as they run back outside. They eventually make it outside and find the SWAT team fighting the Sentinels. 10 Salimorian ships in a circle are carrying a large dome.]

[Future Paper]: That's it! That's the dome!

[Sci]: We have to get out of here...

[Future Paper]: Let's go...

[Future Paper picks up Sci and speeds forward. He zooms forward all the way until they have made it to the top of a hill overlooking the city. Future Paper puts Sci down. The camera cuts to the ring landing in a large circle around the city. After a moment, the pod is seen landing on the White House destroying it. Airforce One is seen flying away as the tower begins to extend out of the pod. The tower reaches a maximum point and the dome begins to generate. Airforce One gets out just as the dome fully generates, sealing off the city. The plane raises in altitude and then flies off into the distance.]

[Sci]: Now we have to head back to the base...

[Future Paper]: We don't have to rush, remember. Anything can leave, but entry is controlled with a passcode.

[Sci]: Still, Fellson City is not safe anymore... Nowhere on Earth is safe anymore...

[Future Paper]: Come on, let's get walking...

[The camera cuts to the Villain's Academy. Ben Tennyson and his team are in the lobby, fighting the Salimorian and Forever Knight army. Kevin Levin absorbs the metal wall and punches two Salimorians. Gwen fires mana bolts at a bunch of Forver Knights. Max takes two pistols and fires them at more Salimorians. Ester jumps and kicks one and then avoids a punch from another. Rook, Blukic, and Driba enter the room with a large bomb.]

[Rook]: We've got it!

[Ben Tennyson transforms into Gravvatack and forces all the Salimorians and Forever Knights away. They all fall to the ground.]

[Ben Tennyson]: Set it up, and quickly, we don't have much time...

[They place the bomb in the center of the lobby. Rook opens a panel and Blukic jumps in and flips a switch. Driba tosses him a small chip. Blukic plugs it into the bomb. Wires start coming out of the bomb and begin running along the floors, up to the wall and all up the tower.]

[Blukic]: That should do it...

[Driba]: Yes it should...

[Max Tennyson]: Then we need to get out of here...

[Ben Tennyson]: Set the bomb for 10 minutes. Everyone should be back by then...

[The camera cuts to the balcony. There is a beep at Slick's communicator.]

[Slick]: Head back to the lobby? Okay, right away...

[He turns to the recruits.]

[Slick]: Come on, we have to get out of here...

[He and the recruits run in the direction of the lobby. They eventually arrive and find all the other groups of recruits and magisters except for Hornbok.]

[Zon]: Wow, guess they never did call for help...

[Relgo]: Wait, where's Hornbok?

[Ivada]: There!

[Ivada points to high up in the tower. They see Hornbok still fighting Lucifer.]

[Kruto]: Hornbok, we need to go!

[They see that the timer still has two minutes left on it.]

[Lucifer]: Oh no, you're not leaving.

[He kicks Hornbok, but Hornbok grabs his foot and throws him back. Hornbok jumps off the tower and then lands and runs over to the ship. he gets on and finds the other Magisters and recruits.]

[Relgo]: Let's go...

[The ship with Ben's team on it takes off, but the Plumber's ship stays for a moment. The camera cuts onto it.]

[Nick]: Why aren't we taking off...?

[Toon]: The ship won't start...

[Cassie]: Well, get it started... and fast...

[Toon]: I'm trying...

[The camera shows the timer on the bomb. It shows 10 seconds. Toon presses some buttons on the ship. 7 seconds. Toon flips a switch and then puts the transmission into drive. 5 seconds. He steps on the accelerator but it doesn't respond. 3 seconds.]

[Toon]: We're doomed...

[The camera shows the timer going down to 0 seconds. The bomb explodes, lighting the Academy on fire. The ship gets engulfed in the explosion.]

[Commercial]

[The camera cuts to Paper and Fear on the spiritual plain. Paper is sitting down and Fear is standing next to him.]

[Paper]: I feel terrible...

[Fear]: Your body has been moved in the physical world. Nothing else has happened to it, now can we continue...

[Paper, standing up]: I guess...

[Fear]: Then let's get started...

[Fear walks off.]

[Paper]: Wait!

[Again, Fear gets grabbed by a tentacle.]

[Paper]: Okay, this has happened before...

[he turns around but does not find a tentacle reaching at him. He turns back around and finds a tentacle in front of him. He pauses for a moment and then immediately turns around and begins to run. He avoids tentacles that reach out of the ground at him but eventually gets tripped by one. He crawls along the ground before getting up and then getting tripped by a tentacle.]

[Paper]: No, get off me...

[More tentacles grab him and begin to pull him down, but they can't get him through the ground.]

[Paper]: I'm... fine?

[He looks around and seeds that the tentacles have stopped, but they are still grabbing him.]

[Paper]: What?

[He pauses.]

[Paper, to himself]: Snap out of it, Paper, this is a test of fear. I'm just afraid of the tentacles... They're not even that scary looking...

[Slowly, the tentacles bring him through the ground. Paper lands on the ground of the Spiritual Plain across from Fear.]

[Fear]: Congratulations, now, what did you learn from this test?

[Paper]: To not be afraid of everything...

[Fear]: but...

[Paper]: But to always think about the situation first...

[Fear]: Come on, we have to return to the physical world...

[The camera cuts to Paper and Fear jumping up in the physical world. They exit the base and look around. Fear is sitting on Paper's shoulder.]

[Paper]: So where did they go?

[Fear]: Maybe they went in the direction of that.

[He points up in the sky. A wave of energy goes across it. Paper looks in the direction of the wave and then takes out his Plumber's badge.]

[Paper]: That's the direction of.. oh no...

[Paper runs accelerates forward in the direction of the wave.]

[Fear]: Where are we going?

[Paper]: Washington, D.C.

[He continues to run forward. He weaves in and out of traffic and eventually makes it out of the city. The camera cuts to Future Paper and Sci walking towards Fellson City.]

[Sci]: Wait, is that?

[They spot Paper speeding towards them]

[Future Paper]: Paper?

[Paper slows down and stops just in front of them. Fear jumps down to the ground.]

[Paper]: Mind explaining what happened?

[Sci]: The Sentinels attacked and we followed them to D.C., but we couldn't stop them from placing a pod down on top of the White House and activating a The Grid...

[Paper]: The Grid?

[Future Paper]: We'll explain on the way, but for now, we have to get off the planet...

[The camera cuts to the explosion at the Villain's Academy. Toon is unconscious in the captain's seat of the ship. All the recruits are unconscious but for the most part the ship has not been damaged on the inside. All the windows are intact, but the ship is a little bent on the outside. Hornbok slowly brings himself to his feet.]

[Hornbok]: Well the bomb worked... But not as we expected...

[He walks over to Toon and shakes him awake.]

[Hornbok]: Hey, think you can fly us back to Earth?

[Toon]: If the ship will work, then yes?

[He presses some buttons and in a moment the ship takes off.]

[Toon]: Well what do you know?

[Hornbok]: What do you bet it was sabotaged?

[Toon]: But why who?

[Hornbok]: It could have been mental sabotage... by Lotin...

[Toon]: True...

[Relgo, getting up]: Glad to see that everyone's okay...

[Hornbok]: That could have been a whole lot worse...

[Relgo]: Any word on the other ship?

[A screen appears on the front window with Ben Tennyson on it.]

[Ben Tennyson]: Finally... We were getting worried... What happened?

[Toon]: Mental sabotage by Lotin most likely...

[Ben Tennyson]: But no one was injured?

[Hornbok]: Most of them are still unconscious, but it looks like everyone is okay...

[Ben Tennyson]: Okay, talk to you soon...

[The screen disappears.]

[Future Toon, waking up]: We're... alive?

[Relgo]: Did anyone come to the ship while you were the only one here?

[Future Toon]: No... I would have seen them... Unless they were invisible...

[Relgo]: So our threat was either Lotin... or invisible.

[Hornbok]: It was likely Lotin...

[There is silence for a few moments. Toon eventually notices another two ships moving towards them. The screen reappears with Ben Tennyson on it.]

[Ben Tennyson]: Guys, I have bad news...

[The camera cuts to three spaceships floating in space. The camera cuts onto one of them where all the recruits, Magisters, and member's Ben's team, even Paper, Sci, Fear, and Future Paper are meeting.]

[Hornbok]: Now explain to me what this grid is again?

[Future Paper]: The Grid that created a force field around the Earth. It is connected to four locations, Washington D.C., Brazil, Siberia, and Australia. Once the power is shut off from all four of those, the central unit, under the Mediterranean Sea can be destroying, shutting down The Grid.

[Sci]: Now another thing the Grid does is control a robotic army that will prevent the people of Earth from rising up. There are now billions of robots on the Earth. They are patrolling every street corner, every back alley, and every underground tunnel. If they catch you out of your homes, they will kill you on sight. As far as we're aware, much of the Salimorian and Forever Knight army has been sent off to other planets...

[Hornbok]: Can we get through the force field?

[Future Paper]: Not without a passcode. It shouldn't be too hard to go to Salimore and find it though...

[Hornbok, after slamming his fist]: I've made a big mistake...

[Ben Tennyson]: We all have, don't blame it on yourself...

[Hornbok]: There is nothing we can do...

[Future Paper]: We could always...

[Hornbok]: We could do anything... But there's no way we'll get it done in time... As of today, the Plumbers have lost...

[The camera cuts to a castle on Salimore. The Elite is meeting in the throne room.]

[Lotin]: And now we wait... The Plumbers have no where to go, and even if we knew where they were we wouldn't stop them.. It would just be a waste of time...

[Ra'ol Set]: With the Earth under our control, the invasion will now focus on the rest of the galaxy.

[Lucifer]: We did however lose the Villain's Academy...

[Lotin]: A small price to pay...

[Blitz]: What about the sword?

[Arthur]: I'm not concerned with finding Rigon's sword. We can let the recruits find it for us...

[Blitz]: The only reason they are trying to find the sword is so that once they find the Hero's Sword, they can permanently destroy Rigon's sword...

[Viper]: But Virton says he knows where the Hero's Sword is, correct?

[Lotin]: Correct... Chemestris, now that the Sentinels are perfected, when will they be ready for bulk production?

[Chemestris]: It's already started... A full team of Sentinels will be ready by tomorrow...

[Lotin]: Then every thing is going perfectly... Rigon... when you do arrive... we will be ready... And we will control your power...

[The End]
