Time for Action (Part 1) is the thirty-eighth episode of E-10: Horizons.
Lieutenant Steel's satellites have found a new island called, the Cipactli. Ethan has reason to believe this is where the Teotls are hiding.
[As the sun shone brightly on the screen, we zoomed down to the scene taking place on the streets of Merridale. An explosion sprung up from a nearby block, and we cut into the cloud of smoke where Ethan flew back.]
[Ethan fell into the road. A car driving towards him turned to the side and crashed into a lightpost. Ethan sat up and rubbed his head.]
Ethan: Ugh, man, I’m getting sick of running into those explosions…
Driver: HEY! [Gets out of car] What’s the big idea jumping into the middle of the road?
[Three pickaxe aliens ran towards the driver’s way and he ran away into the sidewalk. Ethan looked over to his direction, he turned over to the cloud of smoke as Vulkanus stepped toward him.]
Vulkanus: Well, Well. If it isn’t E-10. Here to foil my plans again!
Ethan: I mean how many times have I stopped you in the past year, like three…?
Vulkanus: Doesn’t matter. I’m not going to let you ruin my plans again, and this time I’m prepared! Behold!!!
[Vulkanus grabbed a golden rod out of his sash, which was strapped on his back. It formed into a staff with the top shaped as a V, while yellow electricity surrounded a crystal floating in the middle.]
Ethan: Uh, what is that?
Vulkanus: A state of the art quarterstaff, made out of taydenite and pure Synapian alloy.
Ethan: And is that supposed to scare me because?
Vulkanus: [Sigh] While I was digging, I found one of the rarest most stick fighting weapons in the galaxy. It can manipulate anything electronic, as well as shoot electricity, and like what you saw a moment ago, it can do this!
[Vulkanus’s staff surrounded Ethan in a green veil of energy, it lifted Ethan up in the air and threw him back into the ground.]
Vulkanus: I plan to sell this baby to the highest bidder off the black market, and I can’t have you getting in my way. So get lost!
[Ethan rubbed his head and groaned. The Omnitrix activated.]
Ethan: If you’re done monologuing…
[Ethan began turning the dial and switched from XLR8 to Zerox to Four Arms.]
Ethan: …I’ve got four fists with your name on them!
[Ethan popped up the core and raised his arm over the Omnitrix.]
Ethan: It’s Action Time! [Slams down]
[FOUR ARMS OMNI-SPLICER TRANSFORMATION: A green light flashed from Ethan’s chest as he appeared in a silhouette. The green light faded as he grew a pair of four arms as his body became covered in yellow electricity. The background turned yellow and covered with circuits. Then we zoom into Ethan in a spinning background as he span around while he raised his right arm out. He grew gauntlets on his hand. Then as he spun out, his back grew larger. We zoom out, facing the front of Omni-Splicer Four Arms as he clashed his gauntlets together, creating a bright yellow light.]
[Smoke clouded the area for a brief moment, as the fog cleared Four Arms had his arms raised as he had struck a pose.]
Omni-Splicer Four Arms: Ready when you are!
[Vulkanus ran towards Four Arms, as Four Arms charged toward him on all sixes. As the two prepared to collide fists with each other, every cut off into a white light.]
[We cut to a news van driving down the road and sliding to the side to create an immediate stop. A female reporter and a camera crew ran out of their vans and went live as Four Arms had his fists raised up.]
Omni-Splicer Four Arms: Ready when you are!
[Vulkanus turned the dial on his staff then ran towards Four Arms. Four Arms charged toward him on all sixes. As the two made their way to each other, their fists collided, but Vulkanus unleashed a massive energy blow from his staff which sent Four Arms back into the wall of a building.]
Omni-Splicer Four Arms: Ugh, I should’ve went for AmpFibian…
[Vulkanus walked over to him as Four Arms began sitting up.]
Vulkanus: Give up?
[Four Arms bashed the ground with his gauntlets, which created a tremor below Vulkanus until volts of electricity erupted from the ground and sent him flying.]
Omni-Splicer Four Arms: Not a chance! My shock braces and I can do this all day!
[We zoom into Four Arms’ face for a moment as he raised an eyebrow.]
Omni-Splicer Four Arms: Can you?
Vulkanus: [Groans] PICKAXERS! GET HIM!
[The Pickaxe aliens ran toward Four Arms as he clapped his hands together while they were charged with electricity. This created a shockwave and sent some of them backwards. Meanwhile the others ran toward him as Four Arms continued to clash them with energy blasts. We zoom out to the scene, as we cut out to a live feed of the battle. A news reporter stepped in front to report the scene.]
Reporter: Andrea Sawyer here live, giving you a full scoop of a battle between one of Merridale’s very own superheroes, “Quad Smack”.
[Four Arms was blown back in the background.]
Omni-Splicer Four Arms: That’s Four Arms!
Andrea: Versus another mysterious alien creature!
[We cut to the campus where various people were watching the broadcast on the television screens on campus, or on their phones.]
Andrea: In the past two years, the world has had its fair share of extraterrestrial creatures protecting its planet from harm, particularly in Merridale from other mysterious creatures that seem to be attacking for who knows what reason. From burning buildings to a fight currently taking place in the downtown square of Merridale! These mysterious alien superheroes have been there for Merridale for when people needed them most!
[In the background, Four Arms screamed and was sent back from a few feet. As people continue to watch the news reporter, Alice and Nikki are watching from a table in the cafeteria, while Terence was standing and watching it from one of the televisions hooked on the monitor.]
Andrea: We are being told the fight between this mysterious alien creature has escalated into Burberry Road! Officers have already begun evacuating the area to make sure no harm comes to its citizens. The question is will the fight escalate outside the square?
[Terence walked over to Alice and Nikki.]
Terence: I see Ethan’s having another fight out there with Vulkanus.
Alice: Well, yeah, it’s on every monitor on the campus.
[We cut to footage of Four Arms getting squished into the ground by Vulkanus’s foot.]
Nikki: Do you think Ethan needs backup?
Alice: I sure hope not.
[We cut back to the fight, where Four Arms was flung back, but he caught the ground with his gauntlets and slid back. Four Arms stood up as he took deep breaths.]
Vulkanus: You seem to be lacking energy today. Getting rusty on me, Tetramand?
Omni-Splicer Four Arms: Agh! Screw you, I have asthma, and usually my fights aren’t dragged out for this long!
[The Pickaxe aliens and Vulkanus laughed at him. This angered Four Arms.]
Vulkanus: Aw, looks like someone here is too weak to take me on. The poor little shapeshifter is having trouble breathing. Let me help you with that!
[Vulkanus raised his staff as he lifted a group of cars in Four Arms’ direction. Four Arms looked up and raised his arms out, creating a dome made of energy. The cars exploded onto the dome, and as the fog cleared, Four Arms cleared the dome.]
Omni-Splicer Four Arms: I’m going to find a way to beat you, and you’re going to hate it! [Talks to himself] I’ve just got to find a way to take that staff away from him. But how?
[Four Arms glared at Vulkanus’ armor, then looked at his gauntlets.]
Omni-Splicer Four Arms: [Talking to himself] Maybe if I manipulate my electricity well enough I can rip that suit right off him! Here goes nothing!
[Four Arms raised all of his gauntlets as electricity blasted out from his shock braces. It surrounded Vulkanus and lifted him into the air.]
Vulkanus: Hey, what’s going on?!
Omni-Splicer Four Arms: Giving you a taste of your own medicine!
[Lightning began to scatter around Four Arms’ Omnitrix symbol.]
Vulkanus: Agh, when I get out of this… I swear! I’m going to squash you with every drop of energy I’ve got left in my weapon!
Omni-Splicer Four Arms: Hah, like I’m about to let you pummel me into the ground again with that thing! Sorry, Vulkanus, but this fight’s over!
[The song shifted.]
[The electricity that was scattered around the Omnitrix surrounded his entire body. Four Arms screamed from the top of his lungs and dropped to the ground. Vulkanus was freed and was sent to the ground as well.]
Omni-Splicer Four Arms: What… what’s happening?
[Four Arms looked up and from his perspective, his vision turned hazy.]
Omni-Splicer Four Arms: Why is everything spinning?
[Four Arms’ Omnitrix and eyes flashed yellow as he screamed from the top of his lungs. Four Arms’ face began to change as his mouth grew wider. Hair formed from out of the back of his armor. As it flew out, it transformed into energy. Four Arms’ gauntlets transformed into mutated looking legs. Energy spikes were formed around his shoulders as yellow energy covered his veins. We cut to Vulkanus getting up and raising back up his staff. Vulkanus noticed Four Arms’ was laying on the ground, struggling to stand up.]
Vulkanus: I don’t know what kind of tricks you’re playing today, Wellington. But I’m through messing around!
[Andrea and her camera crew ran over to Four Arms.]
Andrea: Four Arms, are you okay? Four Arms?!
[Four Arms turned over to them, as he appeared to be a mutated version of himself. He snarled at them, to which freaked the camera crew out.]
Vulkanus: WHAT IS THAT?!
[Back at the Horizons cafeteria, Alice and Nikki audibly gasped as they saw the mutated Ethan. Alice covered her mouth while Terence took cringed and stepped back.]
Terence: That does not look right.
[Nikki nodded and ran out of the cafeteria. We cut back to the fight to where Vulkanus stood back a bit.]
Vulkanus: Ew, what are you supposed to be?!
[Four Arms screeched back in response.]
Vulkanus: Aw, whatever! Get him!
[The pickaxe aliens ran toward the mutated Four Arms. Four Arms fired an energy beam from his mouth and it sent the entire group of pickaxe aliens flying into the ground. This covered the area in smoke.]
[Four Arms screeched and rammed his way toward Vulkanus as he was covered in electricity. This sent Vulkanus flying back into a building, creating another cloud of smoke. The fog lifted, and it was revealed Vulkanus was covered in bruises and wounds, stuck to the wall.]
[Vulkanus fell to the ground as Four Arms gave out a thunderous roar. Four Arms noticed the news van parked nearby. Four Arms rammed toward it as he was charged with electricity. It sent the vehicle flying backwards, as the people trapped inside were screaming from the top of their lungs. Suddenly, the van was slowly being sent to the ground as it was covered in electricity. They looked over to notice Firefly was the one who set them down. Nikki flew down as she caught her breath.]
Nikki (Firefly): Phew, mama’s gonna need some painkillers when this is over.
[Nikki looked up to see Four Arms’ was squealing as he continued to ram over the pickaxe aliens. One of the pickaxe aliens looked up, and noticed the mutated Four Arms’ was standing before it. The pickaxe alien covered itself for cover, but before Four Arms could do anything, Nikki jumped onto him.]
Nikki (Firefly): Ethan, you gotta settle down!
[Four Arms squealed and tried to throw her off.]
Nikki (Firefly): C’mon Ethan, what would Alice think of this?!
[It caught Four Arms off guard for a moment as his eyes widened. Suddenly, Four Arms immediately smacked Nikki off him. Nikki was sent flying into the air until she caught herself in time. She looked down below to notice steam was coming out of Four Arms’ nose as he prepared to charge right at her.]
Nikki (Firefly): Uh oh.
[Four Arms screeched as he covered himself in electricity, then charged right toward her. Four Arms eventually was caught running in the air. Nikki’s eyes widened and she flew away to dodge the attack.]
Nikki (Firefly): Since when can Four Arms’ run in the air?!
[Four Arms screeched.]
Nikki (Firefly): It must be because of his Omni-Splicer… I’ve got to bring him down to Earth somehow…
[Vulkanus sat up to notice his Pickaxe aliens were staring at him. Vulkanus looked over to see Four Arms ramming into Nikki in mid-air as she continued to dodge the attacks. Vulkanus sat up as one of the pickaxe aliens handed him his staff.]
Vulkanus: Hey! You Tetramand freak of nature!
[Four Arms looked over as Vulkanus raised his staff in the air.]
Vulkanus: I never got a chance to thank you for the medicine!
[Vulkanus’s staff covered itself in electricity, it trapped Four Arms in a red crystalline structure, acting as an energy dome. Vulkanus used all his strength to send him into the ground until it eventually destroyed the lower half of his mechanical arm. Four Arms slammed into the ground and the area was covered in smoke. Four Arms reverted back into his Omni-Splicer with his arms laid out.]
Omni-Splicer Four Arms: Ugh…
[Four Arms became surrounded in a green light, and he changed back into Ethan. Nikki ran over to try and wake him up.]
Nikki (Firefly): Ethan, are you okay?
[Nikki wrapped her arm around Ethan to try and help him up.]
Ethan: Yeah… that could’ve gone better…
Vulkanus: I don’t know what’s going on with you, E-10! But the next time I see you, I won’t show you any mercy!
[Vulkanus and the Pickaxe aliens retreated. Before Ethan could try to reach out and stop them, he suddenly heard a small whirring sound; he looked down to see the core of the Omnitrix popping up and down as it was covered in yellow electricity. The song ended. We zoom out from the Omnitrix to see Ethan was sitting on a lab table inside the SACT base as A’taenda was checking over Ethan’s Omnitrix. Ethan had tubes surrounding his Omnitrix while another one was checking his blood pressure by a water bag. Alice, Hannibal, Terence and Nikki were standing beside him.]
A’taenda: Nothing yet. You know, you were supposed to check up with me two weeks ago!
Ethan: Sorry, but some of us have a schedule!
Alice: Take it easy, Ethan.
Ethan: [Sigh] You’re right.
Terence: So what was that freak of nature you turned into today? It reminded me of a more humanoid godzilla, only with four arms and less cool nuclear powers.
Ethan: I’m not sure.
Nikki: Do you remember anything that happened?
Ethan: No, one minute I was Omni-Splicer Four Arms, the next I felt like I got hit by a semi.
Hannibal: Dude, have you ever been hit by a semi?
Ethan: Yes, and it hurts a lot more than you think…
Terence: I’d like to imagine.
A’taenda: What happened today was no coincidence. When we first discovered your Omni-Splicers, I discovered there was something wrong with the updates I built into your new Omnitrix. That being the new core I built onto your device.
Ethan: Yeah, you also said there was some kind of genetic leak.
A’taenda: Correct. To this day, it’s still overloading from the sheer amount of energy that the old Omnitrix faced.
Alice: Wait, so the Omni-Splicers are overloading the Omnitrix?
A’taenda: The function that’s allowing it to happen, yes. Ethan, didn’t you already tell your friends about what was causing the Omni-Splicers?
Ethan: I thought I did? [Shrugs] It must’ve slipped my mind.
[The group gave Ethan a nasty glare.]
A’taenda: Because the genetic leak is overloading the new Omnitrix’s core. It’s allowing Ethan’s transformations to be mixed with the DNA of species of their homeworld. Your Omnitrix combats this by filtering the foreign DNA into an armor. I thought this process would’ve stopped by now, but apparently it’s too much for your Omnitrix to handle.
Alice: Like what?
A’taenda: Consequences like losing your train of thought and transforming your aliens into Omni-Mutated monsters! Ethan, I warned you there would be deadly consequences to this action. But no! You decided to say “No, let’s look into these Omni-Splicers! We could learn all sorts of cool things about them!”
Ethan: Hey, you were the one who was on board with the idea. Don’t just pin this out on me.
[A’taenda rubbed her eyebrows and took a deep breath.]
A’taenda: Ethan… I need to remove your Omnitrix.
[As A’taenda spoke, she removed the tubes off Ethan’s arm and Omnitrix. She placed bandages on his arm to heal.]
A’taenda: I can’t let you run around and use this function as a play thing. I’ve seen what happens when these things aren’t properly handled, and I can tell you it will only lead you to devastation.
Ethan: [Deep breath] Okay, but only after we’ve defeated the Teotls.
[Ethan stood back up as he adjusted his wrist.]
Alice, Hannibal, Terence, Nikki: What?!
Nikki: We’re really going to do this?!
Ethan: Yes, I said that last week I wasn’t going to stand by and let those gods kill any more innocent people. If we’re going to do this, we need to do this now, and while I still have my Omni-Splicers. [Raises Omnitrix]
[Lieutenant Steel entered the scene.]
Lieutenant Steel: I agree. Pardon the intrusion, but while I don’t agree with Ethan using his powers while they’re on the fence, I do believe we need Ethan at his full power if we’re going to put down these alien gods once and for all.
Hannibal: Put them down? Wait you mean we’re really going to-
[Lieutenant Steel, Ethan and Nikki nodded.]
Terence: And how are we supposed to do that? Like Steel said, they’re gods!
Ethan: I don’t know. I was barely able to take down Tlaloc the last time. But I know only my Omni-Splicers can do some damage to them, but only if we time this just right.
A’taenda: Ethan, you’re not suggesting to use my Omnitrix as a murder weapon are you?
Nikki: He’s not, but we have to do something to stop them. If you saw what me and Ethan saw that night, you would’ve been nauseous too.
Ethan: They’re not supposed to be here. If we were to trap them back in the seal, they would only come back in another five thousand years later just to be somebody else’s problem, and we can’t hold them in a containment cell. They’re too far gone, A’taenda. Right now the only way to stop them is to use the Omnitrix. The fate of the entire universe is on the line and I just don’t know what else to do.
A’taenda: Very well. While I don’t agree with your methods to use these Omni-Splicers to stop them, I can see why you have to do this. I’ll build you a stabilizer before you head out. Just don’t make me regret this, okay?
[Ethan nodded. A’taenda removed the tubes then jumped off the table.]
Lieutenant Steel: Meet me in the meeting room in 5.
[The song shifted.]
[We cut to Lieutenant Steel pulling up images of energy levels on the monitor.]
Lieutenant Steel: As you know, in the last 6 months, energy levels have been spiking up all over the planet. We have reason to believe it is the Teotls who are causing this problem, we also have reason to believe they can alter the weather.
Alice: We know, we dug into this about a month ago and we found out they were causing several natural disasters all over the globe. They each also had a pattern but we couldn’t form out what it is.
Lieutenant Steel: Correct. According to Ethan’s translations, they were using this to form an ancient ritual to awaken an island known as The Cipactli.
[Lieutenant Steel pulled up an image of the island.]
Ethan: Huh, I just thought they were doing this for fun.
Alice: [Whispering to Ethan] They probably already were.
Lieutenant Steel: We captured this on our satellite and found it on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. It’s detecting a large array of energy that we believe this is to be where the Teotls have been hiding out.
Hannibal: Alright, Well let’s go get ‘em.
Lieutenant Steel: Not so fast, if this is where they are hiding out, you are to report about any information you find on the island. Do not act or do anything rash. If it does come down to one of the five of you who run into Huitzilo or Tezca, we set up a homing beacon on your armor’s chest.
Terence: Ah, so that’s what this badge is for. I thought it was there for looks. Lieutenant Steel: It’s also to be used to scan for intel and information, and to function as a universal translator. [Glares] But none of you ever figured that out.
Ethan, Terence, Hannibal, Alice, Nikki: Aww…
Lieutenant Steel: Now suit up. We’ve got an island to investigate.
[The song shifted.]
[A bright white blinded the screen, as we cut to Ethan, Alice, Terence, Hannibal and Nikki standing aligned inside a dark green moving elevator with light green circular lights surrounding the room. Suddenly, different colored suits started to surround their entire bodies. Ethan’s was green, Alice’s was red, Hannibal’s was cyan, Nikki’s was purple, and Terence’s was orange. The suit surrounded Ethan’s torso. Alice looked at her arms as the suit formed around them. Terence raised his foot up as the suit finished forming onto him. Then, solid metallic armor began forming around the suits. Chest armor grew out Nikki. Shoulder plates appeared on Hannibal’s shoulder, and forearm plates formed after that. Hannibal flexed his arm. Metallic armor formed onto Alice’s shoe and she tapped her foot a couple times. We zoom out from Ethan as his armor finished forming, to zoom further out to reveal everyone was completely armored. Ethan raised his arms up and struck a pose. The elevator moved further upward as we zoomed into the group from above them.]
[We cut to the group leaving the elevators, now equipped in their G.L.E.E. armors. The song shifted.]
[Alice opened the door to one of the containment cells. We see red glowing eyes stare at Alice until it pops out, revealing to be Hypnotick as it licked her.]
Alice: I missed you too, girl. Don’t worry, you’re coming with us.
[The scene shifted to the garage outside as each of them climbed up the ramp that led into the airship. Before Ethan could step aboard, A’taenda called out to him.]
A’taenda: Wait, Ethan! Hold on.
[Ethan stopped and turned around.]
A’taenda: Your Omnitrix, if you would?
[Ethan bent over and raised out his Omnitrix. She attached a stabilizer to his Omnitrix.]
A’taenda: This should stabilize your Omnitrix until you get back.
Ethan: Thanks, this really helps a lot.
[Ethan ran up the ramp to catch up with the others.]
A’taenda: And don’t do anything I wouldn’t do! No, just don’t do anything foolish all together! Okay?!!!
[We cut to inside the airship as everyone else was all strapped up, Ethan sat down and put his seat belt on. Hannibal was piloting the ship, with Nikki sitting in the passenger’s seat.]
Hannibal: All set?
Hannibal: Okay, Lieutenant Steel gave us the coordinates, so let’s get this show off the road!
Hannibal: [Pressing the lever.] What? I thought it was funny?
[The airship slowly took off from the ground until it eventually lifted up into the air, then flew into the clouds.]
[As the airship went soaring through the air, we cut to Ethan watching the clouds move by, in a trance.]
[Ethan snapped out of it and turned over to Alice.]
Ethan: Ah! Alice?!
Alice: You okay?
Ethan: Yeah. Sorry, I’m just zoning out.
Alice: Are you thinking about the Teotls?
Ethan: Yeah… You know, this might be the last time we’ll ever have to encounter them. I’m just hoping the gods don’t….
[Alice pressed onto Ethan’s hand.]
Alice: Don’t worry, nobody’s going anywhere.
[Ethan pressed his other hand on top of Alice’s.]
Ethan: Yeah… Sorry, I’m just nervous, that’s all.
[Hannibal called out to Ethan while he was still piloting the ship.]
Hannibal: Well you better snap out of it soon, cuz we’re here.
[Ethan, Alice and Terence stepped out of their seats to take a closer look.]
[We cut to the clouds fading out to catch a glimpse of a large island from an upper point of view. We cut back to Ethan’s reflection as he glared down at it’s direction. The scene shifted to the airship landing on the beach. A ramp opened from below the ship as Ethan, Alice, Hannibal, Terence and Nikki walked down it. Alice whistled at the ship as Hypnotick phased from the back of the ship and flew next to Alice. Ethan grabbed an energy detector and noticed that the readings were spiking.]
Ethan: Whoa, the energy readings are off the charts!
Nikki: Well, we definitely know the Teotls are here now.
Hannibal: We need to be careful.
Terence: Yeah, this island could have anything, and I don’t feel like dying today.
Ethan: Then we better get a move on before the sun goes down.
[Ethan walked toward the forest as the others followed along. Ethan raised his arm with Diamondhead’s icon selected.]
Ethan: Diamondhead’s got this!
[Alice slashed through the bushes with her energy sword.]
Alice: I got this.
[Alice slashed through the next set of bushes then turned back to Ethan.]
Alice: Reserve your power, Ethan. We might need it.
[Ethan nodded. Hannibal, Terence and Nikki moved ahead of Ethan as he followed along. As Alice continued to slice through the bushes, Terence looked around and noticed a purple lizard with yellow eyes glare at Terence. Terence cringed, and noticed a red and blue striped snake slither toward him.]
Terence: Ew, are you guys seeing this?
Hannibal: Yeah, alien creatures on an alien island. Kind of expected that.
[The snake slithered onto Ethan’s shoulder. Ethan's eyes turned toward the snake and he jumped and screamed from the top of its lungs.]
Ethan: GET IT OFF ME! GET IT OFF!!!
[Ethan tried to shake the snake off him until he managed to throw it back into the bushes. Ethan tried to catch his breath and noticed everyone else was looking at him strangely. Terence tried to hold it together until he eventually bursted with laughter.]
Terence: Wow, Wellington. Can’t handle a little alien snake.
[A green and yellow snake sneaked over toward Terence’s right, and he jumped and screamed from the top of his lungs as he and Ethan held onto each other.]
Nikki: Get a grip you two! You might let the Teotls know we’re here!
[As Terence spoke, a hummingbird was watching them from the branches.]
Terence: Yeah well it’s hard not to freak out little alien things…
Ethan: That’s it. I’m XLR8ing through this forest!
[As Ethan began to turn the dial, Ethan stopped as he and the group reacted to the sounds of birds chirping. It appeared a group of hummingbirds began to surround the group.]
Hannibal: I don’t think they’ll let you.
Nikki: Oh, it’s just a bunch of birds. What are they going to do?
[The hummingbird’s screeched one by one. More fled into the scene and began flying toward the group. Alice created an energy dome, blocking the birds from attacking.]
Alice: Agh, there’s too many! I can’t see.
[A hummingbird appeared from the ground and stared at them.]
Terence: And there’s one coming from the ground!
[The each of them screamed as we cut to Ethan tapping the button off the Omnitrix, then slamming down.]
[GHOULSEYE TRANSFORMATION: As a green cloud of fog came out from Ethan’s mouth, we zoomed into his eyes as he shut them, then opened them back up as it appeared his eyes turned fully green. Pink markings surrounded Ethan’s body and chest. He raised his arms as they changed while chains surrounded his entire arms. Ethan spun in a circle as a black cloak formed around him. He finished spinning to the front as he had transformed into Ghoulseye. Ghoulseye laughed maniacally as yellow electricity surrounded the Omnitrix symbol. A white light surrounded Ghoulseye’s entire body as the background turned yellow.]
[OMNI-SPLICER GHOULSEYE TRANSFORMATION: We spin to Ghoulseye’s back transforming into yellow energy, and we cut to his foot transforming mid-way into a hove. The background faded as we cut to the Omni-Spliced Ghoulseye looking at himself.]
Omni-Splicer Ghoulseye: Ghoulseye?! So much for wind tunnels… [Turns to Alice] Oh Ali! Would you put the dome down for me?!
Alice: But they’ll kill us!
Omni-Splicer Ghoulseye: Just do it!
[Alice put the energy dome down as the hummingbirds surrounded the entire group. A yellow blast of energy surrounded the area as the birds went flying back. Ghoulseye went flying out of the energy as the hummingbirds followed him at sonic speed. Ghoulseye screamed as he unleashed another wave of energy, sending the birds back. In a yellow spinning background, Ghoulseye raised his arms back as his star summoned multiple arrows behind him. Ghoulseye became surrounded in an electrical aura, which formed in the shape of a horse.]
Omni-Splicer Ghoulseye: HIGH-HORSED RAGING ELECTRICAL… CHARGE!!!
[Ghoulseye launched all the arrows as an energy raging horse went flying towards the hummingbirds. Ghoulseye turned intangible, which confused the birds. The birds followed the raging energy horses as Ghoulseye flew down to the group.]
Omni-Splicer Ghoulseye: Hahaha! That'll do it!
Nikki: Uh, I don’t think so!
[A group of other exotic animal-like creatures stared at the group. Hypnotick turned to the aliens and hissed at them as it blew a red powder at the creatures. This made the aliens fall to sleep.]
Alice: Good girl!
[Suddenly more animals appeared from other directions.]
Terence: I don’t think Hypnotick can blow its sleeping powder in all directions!
Omni-Splicer Ghoulseye: We-ell, we better get moving!
[Alice jumped onto Hypnotick’s back and helped Terence on. Hannibal tapped his belt as his exosuit formed around him. Hannibal kicked off his rocket boots then went flying into the air. Nikki’s body became surrounded in electricity as she used the suits armor to run at a faster speed. Ghoulseye floated into the air and flew beside them. More exotic animals kept trying to spring over towards the group. Hypnotick, Alice and Terence phased through a group of squirrels and snakes trying to jump them.]
Terence: Not today!
[Nikki continued to run at quick speed. A vine sprouted out from the ground and Nikki tripped over towards the ground. Hannibal caught her fall and held onto Nikki as he continued to use his flight.]
Hannibal: I got ya!
Nikki: [Turns to Ethan] We need to lose these guys!
Omni-Splicer Ghoulseye: I see a tunnel, over there!
[They sped their way towards the cave. As soon as they made it inside, Alice jumped off Hypnotick to form an energy dome to block the entrance. The animals kept trying to break through the dome until they eventually stopped. The animals ran away and left the scene. Alice’s energy dome faded away until she collapsed. Ghoulseye powered down back to normal as Ethan helped her up. The song ended.]
Ethan: Are you okay?
Alice: I’m fine. Just exhausted.
Hannibal: Let’s take five.
[Hannibal took off his helmet as Nikki walked toward Hypnotick, noticing it had a cooler strapped to its back. They opened it and she threw one towards Terence. Terence sat down and took a drink.]
Terence: Man, I’m exhausted.
Hannibal: I’ll say. How are you holding up?
Terence: Fine, I’m just questioning why we didn’t pack any more equipment.
Hannibal: Well I packed my exosuit, Nikki has the Firefly suit inside her watch, Alice has Hypnotick and my Toolbox.
Terence: But what about me? I just got flashlights that shoot out of my hands! Not any good that’s going to do!
Nikki: Actually it just might. The energy readings are spiking even higher than they were inside.
[Nikki held her energy detector in the air, and they noticed the readings had increased.]
Terence: So what, you think they are in here?
[They heard two character’s laughing as it echoed inside the cave.]
Ethan: They just might. Alright everybody, you ready to do this?
Hannibal, Terence, Nikki: Yeah.
Alice: Although, I still need another minute to rest.
Ethan: No time! I’ve got ya!
[Ethan selected XLR8 off the Omnitrix’s playlist, then slammed down.]
[WILDMUTT TRANSFORMATION: Ethan raised his arm and orange fur rapidly grew from his hand to his face as his eye turned green. A green light surrounded the area and we zoomed out of Wildmutt’s mouth as he made a mighty roar. We zoomed out to Ethan as he finished transforming into Wildmutt. Suddenly yellow electricity began to surround the Omnitrix symbol until a white light surrounded his entire body.]
[OMNI-SPLICER WILDMUTT TRANSFORMATION: In a spinning background, golden armor suddenly formed around his chest. Wildmutt roared as his face changed as we spun out to a tail grew out of his back. Wildmutt spun back to the front as he let out another might roar, while the background faded behind him.]
[Wildmutt climbed below Alice as she shrieked for a moment to find herself on his back.]
Omni-Splicer Wildmutt: Ruff!!
[Wildmutt and Alice ran down the path. Hannibal followed them with his rocket boots. Terence then hopped on Hypnotick’s back.]
Terence: Come on girl, lets-
[Hypnotick sped over to follow them.]
[Nikki tapped her watch and in an orange light, she had transformed into Firefly, then flew after them. The group caught up with Wildmutt as they ran down the tunnel. The tunnel began to grow darker.]
Hannibal: We’re losing light! Terence!
Terence: On it!
[Terence raised his palms and flashed a white light, which surrounded the area with light. Meanwhile, the laughter grew louder in the background.]
Nikki (Firefly): Great work, Terence! We’re almost there!
Terence (Thoughts): Is that all I am to this group? A flashlight?
Nikki (Firefly): Hey! I see something!
[As the group sped down the tunnel, they appeared to be running down the ramps that led to inside a cavern. Wildmutt turned to his right to see the gods below him. Wildmutt snarled and noticed a hummingbird flying beside him. The hummingbird turned to it. Alice squealed in fright as Wildmutt spat a venomous blob out of his mouth. It hit the hummingbird as it fell away from the group. More hummingbirds flew beside the group.]
Hannibal: It’s those hummingbirds again!
Terence: Ugh, I hate those things!
[They began to peck at the group. Terence to his annoyance, he used the flashlight against the hummingbirds and he managed to blind them. Terence punched one out of the way. Hannibal began blasting energy bolts to shew them away. Wildmutt noticed a slide down below and jumped down it. Alice screamed, as the others followed them. Wildmutt, noticing a dead end, climbed onto the walls of the cavern and ran down them, then he slid off the ground to catch himself. The group had arrived inside the cavern as the setting was surrounded by a large blue light. Hypnotick flew down and Terence jumped off her. Hannibal and Nikki landed beside the group and walked over to Ethan and Alice. Wildmutt changed back into Ethan as Alice got off him.]
Ethan: You okay?
Alice: Yeah, [Gags] Just never do that again…
Nikki (Firefly): Is that them?
[We pan up to see Huitzilo and Tezca floating above them.]
Ethan: It’s them…
Huitizilo: Well, well. If it isn’t E-10 and his friends again. I’ve been expecting you.
Ethan: Really? I haven’t seen your face since we blew up your friend.
[Ethan had sneakingly tapped the beacon symbol on his chest.]
Ethan: By the way, how’s that scar I left you, Tezca?
Tezca: A lot better than what I’ll do to your face!
[Before Tezca could charge toward Ethan, Huitizlo stopped him.]
Huitzilo: Easy, Tezcatlipoca, he’s just trying to intimidate you.
Tezca: You’re right… Besides, he should know by now not to make a mockery of us. [Chuckles] I can’t believe you actually went ahead and came after us! After all, he got to witness what I did to his ex-girlfriend.
[Ethan clenched his fist, and Alice pressed on his shoulder before Ethan could act.]
Tezca: I can’t wait to get my revenge after what you’ve done to me. You’ve marked my body. You’ve made me hideous, imperfect! HOW DARE YOU INFERIOR LIFEFORMS SMEAR MY BODY WITH YOUR FILTHY DISGUSTING BLEMISH AND MAKE ME FEEL SUCH WRETCHED FEELINGS!!! I’m going to destroy all of you! … But first, I’m going to take my revenge on you! I think I’ll take your friends first, so you can suffer the same way I felt!
Terence: Yeah, like you’ve taken enough from us already?!
Terence: You heard me! Isn’t that what you did by taking Hannibal’s Grandmother’s life?! I know you did it! You knew she was falling ill so you used this as an opportunity to shut down her nervous system. You may have been able to make a fool out of everyone, but not by me. And you made sure it was all some kind of happy accident!
[Hannibal clenched his fist.]
Alice: Now is not the time to be doing this!
Terence: But he did do it! Don’t you see?!
[Tezca bursted into laughter as everyone turned over with frightened looks on their faces. Ethan’s face enraged, while Hannibal’s eyes shook in fright. Huitzilo turned over to Tezca.]
Tezca: Oh you know me so well, Terence Ramon. The look on all your faces… I can’t take it! Yes, I did take her life.
Huitzilo: I told you to only kill when it was necessary.
Tezca: Oh who cares, it’s just a human! What do they have to lose?! There’s seven billion more of them. Losing one won’t make a difference. Besides, I wanted to make sure they felt the same pain I felt when you all damaged my body.
Hannibal: YOU MONSTER!!!
[Hannibal blasted energy bolts from his palms. Tezca jumped over towards the bolts and absorbed the blasts. Tezca redirected the blasts and fired it with twice the power as the energy made impact onto the ground. Smoke surrounded the floor as Hannibal went flying into the air with his rocket boots.]
Hannibal: HOW DARE YOU KILL AN INNOCENT OLD LADY!
[Tezca increased his size as he grabbed Hannibal.]
Tezca: OH SHUT IT! SHE WAS AN OLD HAG, SHE HAD NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE!
[Tezca threw Hannibal back towards the group at sonic speed. Hannibal turned around and used the fuel from his boots to catch his landing.]
Hannibal: Alice, give me the Toolbox!
Alice: But Hannibal!
Hannibal: GIVE IT TO ME!
[Alice hesitated for a moment until eventually she threw it to him and Hannibal caught it. Hannibal flew back towards Tezca.]
Ethan: I need to stop this now!
[Before Ethan could do anything, Tezca snapped his fingers as zombies made out of stone and flesh came crawling from the ground. We cut to Ethan moving his head up toward the screen, then we zoomed out to him slamming down onto the Omnitrix as a green light surrounded the screen. The song shifted.]
[AMPFIBIAN TRANSFORMATION: In a green spinning background, Ethan raised his left arm as it changed into a tentacle. He raised his right arm, then did the same with his right, then repeated with an additional pair of arms. Three blankets went flying into Ethan’s body as eyes formed out of the top one. Then we zoom out as Ethan striked a pose, with electricity surrounding his tentacles and the Omnitrix symbol. A white light surrounded his entire body.]
[OMNI-SPLICER AMPFIBIAN TRANSFORMATION: Golden armor began forming around the Omnitrix symbol as it formed into a chain around his second blanket. AmpFibian’s face bloated up as a space realm appeared inside and changed, while clouds formed around the lower half of his face. He grew a pink helmet on the tip of his head, which sparkled with electricity. A gold bracelet surrounded his wrist as his palms transformed into yellow energy then waved around the transformation. We spin to the front of AmpFibian as he struck a pose while a green light blinded the screen.]
Omni-Splicer AmpFibian: TIME TO AMP THINGS UP!!!
[The song shifted.]
[AmpFibian unleashed a psychic wave which blew the zombies back. We cut to Alice creating an energy sword as she sliced her way through the zombies. Nikki fired multiple energy blasts to blow the zombies back, while Terence tried blinding others, then punching it. Hypnotick stuck its tongue out then threw other zombies back. We cut to Hannibal raising a lightsaber as he tried to slice through Tezca.]
Hannibal: AFTER EVERYTHING YOU’VE DONE TO US! AFTER SPENDING MY ENTIRE SCHOOL YEAR TO FIGHT YOU OFF AND YOUR HENCHMAN! OUT OF EVERYTHING YOU HAD TO TAKE FROM ME?! WHY DID YOU HAVE TO TAKE MY GRANDMOTHER AWAY?!
[Tezca caught through Hannibal’s blade and stopped him from moving.]
Tezca: …I thought it would be fun.
[Tezca flinged Hannibal and he swung back at sonic speed towards the ground. AmpFibian turned over to notice this.]
Omni-Splicer AmpFibian: I’VE GOT YA, HANNIBAL!
[AmpFibian flew toward Hannibal and caught him with a pink psychic bubble. Tezca gave him a nasty look and raised his palms. Tezca began to absorb energy out of the group. As AmpFibian sat Hannibal down, they each began to lose energy and AmpFibian powered down back into Ethan. Alice and Nikki each lost energy from their armor and powered down. Terence noticed he lost his as his palms weren’t shooting any light. The song ended. Tezca prepared to fire a large energy blast and screamed from the top of his lungs. Huitzilo grabbed his arm and stopped him.]
Huitzilo: Do not waste your energy out on them. Not yet anyway. We have other matters to attend to.
Tezca: Huitzilopochtli! These kids keep getting in our way for our chance to rule this world! We can’t let them continue to exist!
Huitizilo: While I agree these peasants have been in our way for too long, perhaps there is another way we can settle this.
[The group stood up with their armors working again as Ethan sat up.]
Ethan: What do you mean?
Huitzilo: You see, I’ve grown tired of playing this game between what you humans call it? Cat and mouse? So I propose we play a new game of mine that I’m sure will satisfy all of our needs.
Tezca: Oooh yeah, that does sound like fun!
Huitzilo: Tonight will be our last encounter. If you want to get to us and save your planet, you will exit this cavern and compete in my tournament. If you so manage to win, which I highly doubt, we’ll spare your planet and move onto the next. But if we win we’ll have your heads. After all, it would be boring to just kill you all in one fail swoop.
Tezca: Although, not like you will survive the trials that lie ahead. What do you say? You want a battle, Wellington? Are you and your friends willing to put your lives on the line to stop us once and for all?!
Ethan: Alright, we’ll do it…
Nikki (Firefly): Ethan!
Alice: Are you sure you want to do this?
[Ethan turned toward the group.]
Ethan: It’s not like we have any other choice. There’s no way we can beat them here. I’ve got a failsafe so I’m prevented from dying anyway. But you guys don’t, and I don’t want to see any of you get hurt like with what happened to Maria. At least this way it’ll buy us some time to think about how we’re going to do this.
Terence: Eh, our lives we’re already on the line anyway. I don’t see why not.
[Alice, Nikki and Hannibal looked at each other in concern. Ethan turned back to the gods.]
Ethan: Alright, Huitizilo. I accept your challenge! But under one condition, no tricks.
Huitzilo: You’ve got yourself a deal, shapeshifter.
[Huitzilo flew over to Ethan and shook his hand. Huitzilo flew back.]
Huitzilo: But we will have to separate you first.
[Huitizilo surrounded the entire room with wind and everybody went flying into the air as they screamed from the top of their lungs. Terence noticed the Toolbox in its lightsaber mode was floating in the air. Terence tried waving his arms in order to reach towards it. Terence caught it in his hands and placed it in his pocket. Then suddenly, everybody went flying into separate holes. Terence into one. Alice and Hypnotick into one. Then Hannibal into one. Then Nikki into one. And lastly Ethan into the middle. Ethan looked over at Huitzilo and Tezca watching from above.]
Tezca: We’ll see you at the top!
[They flew away from the scene and Ethan noticed where he was flying into. Suddenly the wind stopped and Ethan was floated safely to the ground.]
Ethan: Huh… I’m not dead?!
[We zoom out for Ethan to appear in a different cavern surrounded by a waterfall.]
Ethan: Well this is something...
[Suddenly Ethan heard a monster’s roar coming from nearby.]
[Ethan turned over to see the same group of zombies charging toward him.]
Ethan: [Turns to Omnitrix] Whatever you do, don't give me Wildmutt!
[Ethan popped up the Omnitrix core, then slammed down.]
[MINI-DIAMONDHEAD TRANSFORMATION: In a spinning green background, Ethan raised his arms as crystals began to form over them. Ethan spun around and diamond shards grew out of his back. Ethan spun to the front while the background turned yellow. He finished transforming and a bright white light surrounded his body.]
[OMNI-SPLICER DIAMONDHEAD TRANSFORMATION: Diamondhead spun around a couple times as golden armor began to surround him. Diamondhead raised his arm in the air as it transformed into an energy blade, blinding the screen with a yellow light.]
Omni-Splicer Diamondhead: Now that's what I'm talking about!
[Diamondhead raised his sword and slashed it towards the screen. We cut to Alice’s fight inside the cavern as she swung around the zombies with her energy rope.]
Alice: I am so [Swings] not being [Swing] some Teotl zombie’s chew toy! Hypnotick!
[Hypnotick sprayed a red powder and eventually the zombies fell asleep and collapsed into the ground.]
Alice: Great job, Hypnotick!
[Alice hopped on Hypnotick’s back.]
Alice: Let’s go!
[Alice and Hypnotick flew out of the scene as we cut to Nikki soaring into the air as a group of hummingbirds.]
Nikki (Firefly): Of course they would give me the hummingbirds as their challenge!
[Their hummingbirds tried to peck at Nikki’s shoulders but she blasted them off.]
Nikki (Firefly): Hey! Quit that!
[The flesh zombies appeared from the ground as they tried to grab Nikki.]
Nikki (Firefly): Agh! Hey, stop!
[They managed to drag her into the ground. The hummingbirds flew by the zombies as they tried to peck through where Nikki was located. Nikki sprung up and unleashed a shockwave that sent them back. Nikki stood up to catch her breath as she noticed the zombies were getting back up.]
Nikki (Firefly): Give me a break.
[The scene shifted to Terence’s end where he woke up and rubbed his head.]
Terence: Ugh, my head… those gods did not send me down so well.
[A zombie arm reached out from the ground next to Terence.]
[A group of zombie arms appeared one by one as Terence screamed and stood up.]
Terence: Alright you zombie clods! Let’s see if you can deal with what I snagged in my pock-
[Terence reached for his pocket to find nothing was there.]
Terence: Wait a minute, where’s the Toolbox?!
[Terence looked over to see the toolbox was where the zombies had awakened.]
Terence: Oh great…
[Terence took a deep breath.]
Terence: Okay. Relax, Ramon, you’re only doing this so you can get back with your friends and family. You’re not about to die here…
[Terence took another one and screamed from the top of his lungs as he reached out his palms, his flashlight blinded the screen and we cut to Hannibal’s energy bolt destroying the last of the zombies. Hannibal looked up at the ceiling to notice the exit was above.]
Hannibal: Don’t worry Granny, I’m going to avenge you.
[Hannibal’s rocket boots sent him flying towards the exit. We cut back to Diamondhead laying his arms on the ground as it created energy pillars. It sent a group of zombies backwards. Another zombie tried latching onto Diamondhead and he threw it back.]
Omni-Splicer Diamondhead: Agh, there’s too many of them!
[We shift to Diamondhead’s point of view where a group of zombies and hummingbirds were surrounding him at every turn.]
Omni-Splicer Diamondhead: Guess it’s time for me to lay out a few keys of my own.
[Diamondhead opened his mouth guard and began to shout.]
Omni-Splicer Diamondhead: SONIC ATTACK!!!
[A sonic scream surrounded the entire room as it sent many of the zombies and hummingbirds backwards. They eventually fell to the ground as each of ‘em were paralyzed and knocked unconscious. As the Omnitrix began to beep, Diamondhead began to catch his breath.]
Omni-Splicer Diamondhead: That should do it.
[Diamondhead transformed back into Ethan in a red light.]
Ethan: Now to step outside…
[Ethan looked up at the screen as it split into five directions. From the left frame it showed Terence struggling. From the second it showed Alice flying out with Hypnotick. From the middle it showed Ethan still staring at the screen. From the fourth frame it showed Nikki struggling. And from the right frame it showed Hannibal flying out of the tunnels. Eventually the scene ended and everything went black.]
TO BE CONTINUED...
[We shifted through various scenes where Terence was being beaten by Huitzilo's zombie army. Suddenly a bright yellow blast threw the zombies off him. The scene shifted to Hannibal having a private talk with Huitzilo in the caverns. We cut to Alice fighting a giant titan made of flesh. Then we cut to an Omni-Spliced Lodestar and Hannibal fighting Tezca.]
