Plot

 
Plumbers' Academy
January 6, 2012, 1:19 PM EST

[Sci is sitting in the dining hall of the Academy. None of the other recruits are sitting around, but there are a bunch of other students in the room. Another panel shows a male and female student sitting together. The male is sitting on a table and the female is sitting in a chair facing the table next to him.]

[Male]: And then I was like... Oh, no, if you were a better fighter, you would have won, if you were fighting a weakling...

[The female rolls her eyes and then chuckles a bit.]

[Male]: Look at that recruit sitting all alone... Doesn't he have any friends...?

[Hearing this, Sci gets up and walks over to the Male and the Female.]

[Sci]: Wanna say that to my face?

[Male]: I didn't mean it kid, I'm just saying why are you sitting all alone? I know you have friends...

[Sci]: I don't appreciate you barging into my business....

[Male]: Kid I like how act...

[The male stands up.]

[Male]: Name's Argo... this is Heria.

[Heria]: Nice to meet you, too.

[Argo]: What do you say we just talk... alone...

[Sci]: Um... sure, I guess... I don't have any more classes today...

[Argo]: Then we should be good, let's go...

DarknessPanel1

[They walk out of the dining hall and head down the hallway.]

[Argo]: First got here in 2009, September, actually. Been here ever since, making it my fourth year... Next year I finally get to go on missions and stuff... I'm not part of the special team... I have more training, harder classes, and more work...

[Sci]: Believe me, I have many more problems than you may think... I mean, yeah, we don't get a lot of outside work and our classes are easy. Training's probably the same and actually it's probably more difficult too.

[Argo]: What do you do? I mean, you're human, so what could your powers be?

[Sci]: I control water, earth, fire and air. The four main elements...

[Argo]: Cool, but a little boring... My powers are a bit cooler...

[Sci]: What are they...?

[Argo]: I don't want to show them....

[Sci]: Can you tell though?

[Argo]: I've got a bunch, actually... I'm super strong, a master magician, but my best power is turning into a cerebrus. Then I can breathe fire... I'm also great with swords...

[Sci]: Dude, those are awesome powers...

[Argo]: You think... Yeah, they are, it's just that usually when I tell people they realize who my dad is...

[Sci]: You've got an evil father, too?

[Argo]: No way, who's yours?

[Sci]: Sorry, I have to...

[Argo]: Wait, four elements, human... Impossible, you aren't...

[Sci]: What?

[Argo]: RIGON? You're the son of Rigon?

[Sci]: Yeah...

[Argo]: That makes you my enemy... I am a son of Virton... the hero that defeated Rigon...

DarknessPanel2

[Argo jumps up and kicks Sci in the face.]

[Sci]: Woah, I don't want to fight... I'm on your side...

[Argo]: You may be on the side of good, but my father switched sides long ago!

[Argo kicks him again and then throws a magic blasts at him, knocking him into the wall.]

[Sci]: Fine, be that way...

[Sci blasts a bunch of fireballs at Argo, but he avoids them and kicks Sci back. Sci jumps forward and blasts a current of air in Argo's face. He jumps back and blasts more magic blasts at Sci. He kicks him and then punches him before jumping at him and knocking him into a wall.]

[Argo]: Enough of you.

[Argo jumps and roundhouses Sci, knocking him out. He drags his body into a closet and then closes the door before running off.

DarknessPanel3

[A few hours later, Sci wakes up in the closet and looks around.]

[Sci]: You've got to be kidding me...

[He jumps up and bursts through the door. He looks around and then runs off.]

[Sci]: You couldn't have gotten far, Argo...

[He runs down the hall, turns down the corner and heads down a flight of stairs. He makes it to the barracks section and slows down.]

[Sci]: He's probably not here... If I were on the Academy, and going to do something big, where would I go? The gym?

[Sci stops and then bursts forward.]

[Sci]: He must be in the gym...

[Sci turns a corner and eventually enters the gym. He finds Argo working on a strange device.]

[Sci]: What do you think you're doing?

[Argo]: I'm destroying the Academy.

[Sci]: Why now? You've been here for almost 3 and a half years... Why now?

[Argo]: Because I just received this device... A Dark Void Generator...

[Sci]: That doesn't sound good...

[Argo]: For you maybe...

[Argo blasts magic attacks at Sci. He avoids and then forms a water whip and whips Argo across the floor. Sci jumps at him and then punches down but Argo rolls out of the way.]

[Argo]: Nice trick...

[Argo jumps and tackles Sci. He flips over and then makes a sword appear in his hands. He spins and slashes the sword, missing Sci by a few inches. Sci jumps and kicks Argo, knocking him back, but he slashes and knocks Sci into the wall.]

[Argo]: We're done here...

[Argo runs back over to the machine. Sci chases him, but Argo wins the race and activates the machine.]

[Sci]: NO!

[Argo]: Say hello to a Dark Void...

DarknessPanel4

[A portal begins to generate out of the machine.]

[Sci]: Mind explaining to me what a Dark Void is?

[Argo]: A pocket dimension... The Academy is going to get sucked in, and then the dimension closes, never to open again...

[Sci]: If only you got trapped on the inside, too...

[Argo]: Well, that won't happen...

[Suddenly, Sci tackles Argo to the ground.]

[Sci]: We're staying right here...

[Sci grabs Argo's arms and forces him towards the portal...

[Argo]: You'd get trapped, too... The portal is too strong...

[Sci]: Maybe, but at least it would prevent Rigon from returning...

[He jumps into the portal with Argo. They land on a rocky surface. The sky is purple and there are asteroids floating around everywhere. The portal is still open.]

DarknessPanel5

[Argo]: As long as it doesn't run out of power we should be fine

[Sci]: Truce until we get out?

[Argo]: Fine, truce...

[Sci]: If we just hop along the asteroids we should be fine....

[Sci jumps to first asteroid but almost falls off it.]

[Sci]: I said should...

[Argo]: You're doing it wrong...

[Argo jumps and lands perfectly on the asteroid. He begins jumping from asteroid to asteroid as Sci follows him.]

[Sci]: Wait up...

[Sci begins to go faster but as he jumps on the last asteroid he almost falls off. Argo reaches down and grabs his hand. He pulls him up onto the asteroid.]

[Sci]: Thanks... THE PORTAL'S CLOSING!

[Sci knocks him to the side and jumps through the portal. Argo jumps through just as the portal closes.]

DarknessPanel6

[Argo]: Nice try...

[Sci]: Wait, how come it didn't destroy the Academy?

[Argo]: I didn't turn it up to full power...

[Sci]: So...

[Argo]: I'll just recharge it and try again... After I take care of you...

[Sci]: Like that would ever happen!

[Sci forms two fireballs and blasts them at the machine. After a moment, the metal begins to melt and eventually the machine falls apart.]

[Argo]: MY MACHINE! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?

[Sci]: I melted it...

[Argo]: You haven't seen the last of me!

[Argo runs off.]

DarknessPanel7

[Sci]: Where's he going to go...

[Sci walks out of the gym. He sees Hornbok walking towards him forcing Argo in front of him.]

[Hornbok]: Explain... Now...

[Sci]: Argo is the son of Virton... He tried to...

[Hornbok]: Virton... Impossible...

[Argo]: Well, I am...

[Hornbok]: You're staying at the Academy then. We'll keep close sights on you, but we can't let you leave... We'll convince you to join our side...

[Sci]: Now mind explaining to me who Virton is...

[Hornbok]: You will meet him when the time is right... He was the original hero of the prophecy, the hero who defeated and sealed away Rigon. But he's changed since then... Now, if you'll excuse me, I must be going...

[Hornbok walks off.]

[Sci]: So are you going to stay?

[Argo]: Yes... I have my reasons, but don't think I'm actually your side... I'm riding the fence in between good and evil, waiting for someone to tip me to one side...

[Sci]: That someone being Virton...

[Argo]: Perhaps...

[He walks off.]

[The End]
