Plumbers' Academy

[Bink and Ben walk into Hornbok's office.]

[Ben]: You called us down?

[Hornbok]: Yes, I did. I have a special mission for the two of you...

[Bink]: Why us?

[Hornbok]: I drew names out of a hat... deal with it...

[Ben]: So where are we going this time?

[Hornbok]: Gaea Incorporated, a, thankfully former, division of ChemiLabs, a company that has been known to be part of illegal operations in the past. Gaea Incorporated is now it's own company...

[Bink]: What do they do?

[Hornbok]: They do a wide variety of things, but their main project is the development and improvement of interstellar travel. They were going to release a new line of spaceships a few days ago, but they delayed the release because they have been receiving threats.

[Ben]: By whom?

[Hornbok]: That's what I want to know... We can beam you there easily... Just get in those pods...

[Hornbok points to two pods in his office. Bink and Ben get in the pods and beam to Gaea Incorporated.]

Gaea Inc.
January 16, 2013, 11:42 AM EST

[Bink and Ben are walking down the halls of Gaea Incorporated.]

[Bink]: Maybe it's the Elite... I mean if they separated from ChemiLabs and ChemiLabs was part of illegal operations, then wouldn't the Elite possibly connected to them and want to stop Gaea Incorporated...

[Ben]: Perhaps...

[They head down the hall and enter a room full of computers.]

[Ben]: Wait, this says here they are launching today...

[Worker, entering]: Hey, what are you doing here?

[Bink, showing her Plumber's badge]: We're with the Plumbers, now, what can you tell us about the interstellar ship release...

[Worker]: It was scheduled for 4 days ago, but we were receiving threats, so we delayed it to today. Security is amped up and we are expecting some sort of attack.

[Ben]: We can help...

[Worker]: Then follow me...

[Ben, Bink and the Worker run out of the room.]

RootsPanel2

[Worker]: You head for the supercomputer, I have to go to a spot check of something...

[He turns and runs off. Ben and Bink turn to face him.]

[Bink]: But we don't know where the supercomputer is...

[Ben]: We can find it...

[They turn around and find a spirit looking figure floating in front of them.]

[Figure]: Hello...

[Bink]: You look familiar...

[Figure]: You don't... Now give them to me...

[Ben]: Give what...

[Figure]: The rings... I want the rings...

[Bink]: Rings... What rings.. Wait, the rings the Zon and Brian found?

[Ben]: Must be...

[Figure]: You have them, I know you do...

[Bink]: Where'd you hear that?

[Figure]: Lotin... I heard from a man named Lotin...

[Ben]: That's it! We're getting out of here!

[Ben runs off and Bink follows. The figure blasts blue energy blasts at the recruits knocking them down.]

RootsPanel3

[Figure]: No one gets away from me?

[Bink]: Can you at least tell us who you are?

[Psyki]: My name is Psyki and that is all you should know at this time...

[He kicks Ben in the face. Bink blasts magic blasts at him and he avoids. He jumps in the air and kicks Bink back. She fires more energy blasts at Psyki, but this time he absorbs them and fires them back, knocking her across the hall. Ben jumps up and charges at Psyki. He jumps and flies past him before turning around and firing sonic screams at him. He knocks him over but then Psyki blasts blue energy blasts at Ben, knocking him down. He gets up and turns around only to see Psyki knock him over and then head past him.]

[Bink, getting up]: Ben, get up, we have to follow him. He's probably going to the supercomputer to try and shut it down...

[Ben, getting up]: But if he wants the rings, why does he need to shut down the supercomputers...?

RootsPanel4

[Bink]: He obviously made a deal with Lotin. If shuts this down, Lotin will help him find the rings...

[Ben]: But what about the Ringmaster?

[Bink]: He's either working with or against the Ringmaster. I doubt Lotin or the Elite are connected though. They are probably just helping out...

[Ben]: Well either way we have to stop him... Let's go...

[They run off in the same direction as Psyki and eventually get to a door.]

[Ben]: I think he went in here...

[Bink]: We have to be ready for him...

[Ben]: Let's go!

[Ben kicks down the door and the two recruits jump through. The supercomputer is in the room but there are only some workers in the room. Psyki is not in the room.]

[Bink]: So he's not here...?

[Figure]: Who's not here?

[Ben]: Who are you?

[Figure]: I am Hom, the CEO of Gaea Incorporated... I'm assuming you are the Plumbers that Hornbok sent over...

[Bink]: He called?

[Hom]: He did... We were expecting some sort of...

[The lights go dark.]

[Hom]: Attack...

RootsPanel5

[Psyki appears in the room and knocks the CEO into the wall. Bink and Ben suddenly jump into action. Bink blasts magic attacks at Psyki, knocking him back, but he begins to destroy the computer as he avoids the recruits' attacks.]

[Ben]: He's not going to fight us unless he needs to. All we need to do is protect the supercomputer...

[Bink and Ben jump in front of the supercomputer and watch Psyki destroy all the other computers. After a few panels, Psyki eventually heads over to the supercomputer.]

[Bink]: Wait, now I know where I've seen you before. Ben, remember Hypnos and Tempos?

[Psyki]: You mean my brothers?

[Bink]: Knew it...

[Psyki]: Yes, they did tell about a failed attempt to reclaim the rings... Now out of my way...

[He knocks the recruits to the side and begins to destroy the supercomputer. Bink blasts magic attacks at Psyki while Ben blasts sonic screams at him. He begins to slow down until he eventually turns to the recruits.]

[Psyki]: I'll find them on my own. You obviously don't have the rings so I'm not helping anymore...

[Psyki flies off and then disappears.]

[Ben]: That was weird...

RootsPanel6

[Bink]: But good...

[Hom, walking over]: Thank you for all your help... You saved our project and our company...

[Ben]: Thanks your friend Hornbok... He was the one who sent us here...

[Hom]: I'll be sure to do that...

[Bink]: Now tell us something... tell us about ChemiLabs...

[Hom]: Gaea Incorporated is a former division of ChemiLabs, but ChemiLabs, run by the evil scientist Chemestris, has been known to conduct illegal operations, so we split from them... Whoever hired someone to stop our project is likely working with Chemestris...

[Bink]: Thanks... But we have to go now...

[The two recruits walk off.]

[Ben]: Why'd you ask?

[Bink]: Because now we know all that he knows, and we also know that he doesn't know too much...

[Ben]: And is that a good thing?

[Bink]: It sure is...

RootsPanel7

[On the next page, Bink and Ben are talking with Hornbok.]

[Hornbok]: So Hypnos, Tempos, and Psyki are all brothers, and they want the rings, but we're not sure if they are working with the Ringmaster, right?

[Ben]: Correct?

[Hornbok]: And we know that Lotin wanted Gaea Incorporated to be eliminated because it broke off from ChemiLabs runs by Chemestris, so that connects Chemestris to the Elite...

[Bink]: Wait, yes, it does...

[Hornbok]: We're becoming smarter... faster... It's exactly what we've been teaching you...

[Ben]: No need to prove it to us...

[Hornbok]: But that does leave one question... If Psyki met with Lotin, then does that meet Lotin is still out there and possibly conducting operations in private...

[Bink]: He must be...

[Hornbok]: But that is a problem for another day... Today, we watch the launch of the Gaea Incorporated Fleet...

[The last panel shows Bink and Ben exiting as Hornbok turns on a monitor to watch the launch.]

[The End]
