Part One Origins
Long ago in a land forgotten by time. A small child is ignored by his tribe. Always
given the scraps and leftovers, the child goes without. As he grows
older he becomes a great hunter and gatherer. He always takes care of the small
and weak first. Giving them the greatest portions.
One day while hunting, he sees the strangest tiny green man. The tiny
green man ran away once spotted. The man is compelled to give chase. He
chases the tiny green man for days and weeks, which eventually become months.
One day in a cold arctic environment, the tiny green man stopped running. The
unnamed man grabbed him. Before he could do anything else the ground began
glowing and shaking. Eventually sinking into a brightly lit cavern.
The unnamed man sees hundreds of tiny green men dressed exactly alike.
Before he can question any of them a spirit appears before him.
"YOU HAVE BEEN CHOSEN!!!!"
"Chosen for what strange spirit?"
"You have been chosen to be the avatar of a new day. An avatar of
"What is Christmas?"
"That is not for you to know yet. But eventually all the world will celebrate and a
being such as yourself will be needed."
The unnamed man knows this must be madness. But somehow he trust the spirits
words, and as he accepts the truth in his heart he is transformed.
His hair and beard turn as white as the snow that surrounded him earlier. He
grows several inches in height. His once lean stomach becomes gargantuan.
His animal furs change into a fine red suit with white fur lining, with black gloves
Soon the tiny green man comes forward.
"Now you realize my purpose. Our equipment sensed that the one was in your
area. When you managed to keep up with me for all those miles, I knew you were
that one. We are the elves, and we live to serve you. Behold your chariot."
With a flash of golden light a mighty red chariot appears in the room. It is lead by
a mighty team of nine Rein Deer. At the front a Rein Deer with a glowing red
beacon for a nose.
The spirit once again speaks.
"While once you were a man, now and forever more you are SANTA
Where there is a great good.....
How did he arrive in this wasteland? His entire life he was driven by greed. The
overwhelming desire to have everything. To take the biggest piece of Mastodon
meat for himself. To horde all the furs and food for himself.
One day he felt a premonition that there was a land filled with all the food he
would ever want. Fearing he would have to share the bounty he did not tell the
tribe. Instead he took out in the dead of night. Traveling for months in one
Now he is in a land of death and despair. He is wasting away. His once ample mid
section is now gone. He lays in the desert dying. But before death can grant him
the oblivion he desperately craves, a fire is started.
Soon it consumes him, but he is not burnt. A dark figure appears before him.
"A great force for good has been born. The scales of fate will not allow such an
imbalance to exist. You are a man rotten to your core. Filled with a cancerous
greed that will destroy everything you touch. You will be the vesel to right this
"I care nothing for imbalance!!! Give me death!!!"
"You have no choice human."
A black mist surrounds the man. He grows several feet in height. He is garbed in
a black and red fur suit. His blond beard turns coal black. He feels a great power
within him. A power that drives him to destroy and consume.
Tiny stone men surround him. They present him with a chariot made of fire and
brimstone. Lead by a squadron of Deer Skeletons. Their eyes blood red and
consumed by a ravenous hunger.
"Come forth my Xanta Xlaws, Come forth my Destroyer of Christmas!!!"
Prelude to Christmas
After accepting the sacred responsibility of being the avatar of Christmas, Santa
Claus began his training. His job was to spread good will among men. Giving gifts
to children and the helpless. With these tiny acts of kindness, men would begin to
act on their own.
The tiny green men are known as elves. From what he has gathered, they
originally came from another planet. Their ship crashed on Earth after being
attacked by a race known as the Helves. They set up a base in the North Pole
where they made contact with the spirit who calls himself Master Christmas.
They were tasked with finding a man worthy of the mantle of Santa Claus. Now
the man trains. He learns the full scope of his powers. How to command the Rein
Deer and maneuver his sleigh in any conditions. He learns to access the true
power of Christmas and even combat. The Elves are hesitant to say why.
Now he is told to make a list of naughty and nice. Santa inquires what happens to
the naughty children. He is told they are given nothing. This bothers Santa. He
believes no child is truly naughty. He wonders if there was a way to truly
motivate them to be good, for goodness sake.
It is now Christmas Eve, he is to give all the children Christmas presents. His run
over Asia goes smoothly. But over Africa, Santa Claus sleigh is attacked. It was
struck by two projectiles of Coal.
He sees a man dressed in an outfit similar to his, except it is red and black. The
man is gigantic in height, but extremely thin. His beard is black as night. Santa
realizes he is in for the fight of all time.
Santa shouts with a voice that could command a squadron of Rein Deer.
"Evasive maneuvers!!! RUDOLPH FIRE!!!!"
The Rein Deer with his nose so bright, uses it to fire a concussive blast of
crimson energy at the Brimstone sleigh and undead Rein Deer. The undead Rein
Deer are shaken by the attack. Giving Santa his chance to tackle his lanky
doppleganger, knocking him from his sleigh.
As Santa and Xanta fall to the Earth below they exchange thunderous blows that
rattle the heavens themselves. Finally crashing to the ground leaving a massive
crater. Santa Claus faces his enemy.
"Who are you?"
"I am your shadow. I am the wickedness in the hearts of man. I am XANTA
Xanta Claw sends a massive black fireball at Santa.
He is surrounded by a red energy field that deflects the blast.
Santa knows he must end this fight soon. He sees the tall, thin Xanta. Everything
about him gives off an aura of death and despair.
Santa puts his hands together and they begin to glow with a swirl of red and green
Xanta mimicking Santa puts his hands together and a black and red light shines.
The two tidal waves of energy collide. They are evenly matched, with neither
side giving an inch. Around the world all children can sense the
battle raging. Who will survive... Who will be the face of Christmas?
Santa continues pouring out his energy to fight off Xanta's Claw's energy attack.
But he is beginning to waver. He is pushed back inch by inch, as Xanta's black
tidal wave of energy grows larger. Santa will not win this day alone.
At Santa's Base in the North Pole, the ancient alien race known as the Elves
watch with fear and trembling.
"There must be something we can do. Some way to help."
A glowing form belonging to the spirit that empowered Santa Claus appears.
"Yes there is a way for all of you to aid my avatar."
"Master Christmas?!? Surely you can stop the evil one."
"No my powers on this plane are now limited. Quickly create a link with the
children of Earth. They must help Santa before it is too late. "
Around Earth little boys and girls view Santa's plight. They watch him attempt to
turn back an overwhelming onslaught.
"Boys and girls, we are the Elves. Santa needs your help in this battle. The fate
of Christmas is at stake.'
One tiny boy in England speaks to the roof as his parents question his sanity.
"But what can we do? We're just kids."
"You can be good, for goodness sake. Your good energy will empower Santa."
Around the world every child releases the goodness in their hearts. Even the
naughty children give.
Soon Santa who had been driven to one knee stands up. His hair grows longer
and glows a brilliant white light. The sleeves on his uniform tear away revealing
bulging biceps and his eyes now pure white.
Xanta quivers in fear. He pours his remaining energy out. Absorbing every ounce
of ill will mankind has. But it is nothing compared to the goodness inside of
"What, what are you?"
Santa grimly smiles.
"I AM THE HOPE OF CHRISTMAS!!! THE LIGHT OF GOODNESS!!! I AM
THE ONE YOU FEAR!!!! I AM SUPER SANTA!!!!"
Santa powers up fully and annihilates Xanta with his energy blast. Nothing is left
of Xanta but dust.
Around the world children cheer. Parents chalk the event up to excitement over
Christmas presents. The tale of a battle between good and evil the result of an
over active imagination. But the kids know better and have pleasant dreams.
In the North Pole, the Elves cheer wildly, as Master Christmas fades away. Santa now powered down and exhausted, meets his loyal Rein Deer. Who successfully fought off their own demonic doppelgangers.
He gets aboard his sleigh weary but determined to finish his job.
"Now, Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer,Vixen and Rudolph!
"On, Comet! On, Cupid! On, Donder and Blitzen!"
The Sleigh disappears in a blink of light. Its destination, Christmas.

Bronco has not been able to land a blow on the Soldier of Light. Light is more
powerful than he expected. But Bronco is determined and refuses to quit.
"Bronco Shooters, Horse Shoe Mode!!!!!!"
He connects his Bronco Shooters at the handle and fires. But the
Soldier of Light deflects it with his halo.
Bronco charges at the Soldier Of Light. The Soldier expects Bronco to
fire again, but instead he leaps into the air and fires at the ground in front of
the Soldier kicking up dust.
Bronco's Lasso appears in his hands and he wraps it around the Soldier
"Mr.Light you gotten all tied up."
Bronco cinches up on the Lariat and whips Soldier of Light into the ground.
"You will pay for this......"
The Emblem on Soldier's chest glows and fires a energy beam at Bronco, which
the yellow Horse Power swiftly dodges.
"NO!!!! THE RIGHTEOUS WILL NOT BE EMBARRASSED!!!"
The Energy Halo above the Soldier's head grows larger and Bronco's Lariat
tears as the Soldier of Light fires energy from his emblem recklessly. Some of
the beams cause civilians to be injured.
Bronco stands up, a bit shaken from the barrage.
"Look at you Light!!! You say you want to help!!! Have you helped those people
Soldier of Light takes a step back.
"no.... no.... I did not....."
The Light appears to the Soldier.
"The wicked will attempt to confuse the righteous."
A blast from the Bronco Shooter hits Soldier of Light.
The rest of Horse Power gather around Bronco.
"Lets form the Horse Power Combination Power Blaster!!!!!"
Sergent Sargent limps over.
"We have to Sarge."
"No the Horse Power Combination Power Blaster can't cut it with this guy."
"Then what do we do?"
"Well I was saving this for your Christmas present but..... Summon
the Horse Cannon!!!!"
Horse Power instinctively get in position to hold the Horse Cannon on their
"Alright boys take the Horse Shoes on your chest and insert them in
Clydesdale standing behind the cannon inserts his Horse Shoe in the Red Slot.
Mustang inserts his Horse Shoe in the Green Slot.
Stallion inserts his Horse Shoe into the Blue Slot.
Bronco is last and he inserts his Horse Shoe in the Yellow Slot.
Together the four Horse Powers and Sergent Sargent yell.
"HORSE POWER HORSE CANNON FIRE!!!!"
The Light whispers into the ear of the Soldier of Light.
"You see they seek to use brute force to destroy you. You must match them"
The Soldier has been charging up the Halo in his hands. It glows and
crackles with energy, having grown to in size.
"I SHALL END THIS FALSE IDOLS!!!!"
He throws his Halo at the Energy Beam fired from the Horse Cannon. The two
forces clash causing a shock wave that knocks down all but Horse
Power,Soldier of Light and Sergent Sargent.
The massive energies struggle for dominance.
"C'mon team. Grrrr...... Can't let this hypocrite beat us."
The Horse Power team puts more of their personal energy into the blast. Pushing
it toward the Soldier.
The Light pushes her Soldier onward.
"You must not allow the defilers to destroy me."
The Energy halo above his head glows larger and brighter. His energy stops the
Horse Cannon blast from advancing.
The Soldier of Light pushes forward.
Bronco gives even more of his energy to the Cannon. Tapping into his
armors life support system.
The Horse Cannon blast grows more intense pushing the Soldier's Halo back at
him. He begins to doubt.
"How can a false idol fight like this..... If the power of true conviction can
overcome anything? How is it I have not triumphed?"
With each doubt the Soldier's Halo is pushed even further back to him.
"Do not doubt my Soldier."
"But why? why did you send me to attack these men? Why do you not give me the
power I need?"
The Horse Cannon pushes the Halo closer and closer until finally the tremendous
energy hits the Soldier of Light.
Professor Necro watches as his project falls apart.
"Dear SkeleGun. I believe you are needed."
Soldier of Light stands up. His cape and uniform torn to shreds. His energy
halo is gone and his Halo weapon is broken in two.
He stands up determined to fight.
"I...I am fighting for the right thing. true conviction."
Suddenly Horse Power are hit by the bone shrapnel cannon of SkeleGun. He has a
squadron of Necronoids accompanying him..
They surround the Soldier of Light. Ready to defend him.
The Soldier is hurt. Seeing these demonic creatures defending him,
takes away his last ounce of conviction. Soldier Of Light runs away.
Horse Power would pursue him, but they are occupied with SkeleGun and the
In a world seconds yet an eternity away. Professor Necro smiles. Once again
SkeleGun is confused.
"Forgive me Professor, but why are you smiling? Your Soldier of Light was
defeated and I failed to stop Horse Power. I only narrowly avoided destruction."
"SkeleGun it has been far too long since I have had this much fun.
Soldier of Light is but one part of my plan. He will return soon enough. True conviction always triumphs."
The rec room of Liberty Corps base. The Horse Power team celebrates with their
Liberty Corps teammates.
David Foster takes a sip of his Kaboom cola.
"Guys this was a rough one. Sarge you got it worse than any of us. Do
you want to get checked over by Triage?"
"No David. in fact I feel pretty good."
Romero Sanchez looks dejected.
"Whats the matter Sanchez?"
"Sarge I feel stupid. I kept thinking the Soldier could be negotiated
with. But in the end he was no different than SkeleGun."
"Romero you're not stupid. You tried to do the right thing. You
thought he was a good man and wanted to save him. Only thing you did wrong was thinking he could live up to your standards."
Horse Sense PSA
In the storage shed in the backyard of a suburban neighborhood.
"What are we doing in here Jimmy?"
"Look what I found Billy. My dad had it hidden behind his power tools."
"That's right Billy, Bikini World magazine, the Rio Edition."
"should....should we look at that?"
The kids look at one another and exclaim.
"SOLDIER OF LIGHT!!!!"
"What you kids are holding is poison. It will rot the spirit and the mind."
"My dad reads it."
"Let me show you a preview of where your father's foul spirit is
destined to go."
The Soldier shines a light upon the kids showing them a vision. The kids are
A police siren suddenly wails, and The Soldier of Light anxiously leaves.
The kids stand whimpering.

"HORSE POWER!!!! Come out and face me!!! Match your power against my light!!!!!"
The Soldier of Light is being filmed by a camera crew from the station where he tapes "Remmy and Friends". He is now surrounded by a crowd of gawkers.
The gates to Liberty Base open and a squad of Grunt Patrolmen walk out. The Grunt Patrolmen walk up to the Soldier of Light. They have no fear of the figure in Teal and Gold. Grunt #44 speaks.
"Soldier of Light by the authority of Liberty Corps, you are under arrest."
The Soldier smirks.
"Is that so?"
The Grunt Patrolman is dropped by a right cross. The other Grunts take out their plasma rifles and fire. The Soldier of Light deflects the blast with his Halo. He prepares to retaliate when.
It is Sergent Sargent and E-Unit.
"At last you face me."
Soldier of Light gets into a defensive position.
Romero Sanchez steps forward. Sergent Sargent puts his hand on his shoulder.
"What are you doing Romero?"
"Please Sarge, I have to try."
"Alright Sanchez, gonna let you call your own play on this one."
Romero walks up to the Soldier of Light.
"Soldier we are not enemies. We want the same things. We want to help people. You have not done anything unforgivable."
The Soldier hesitates. This man is being reasonable. Perhaps there is another way.
Romero offers his hand.
"The business's you destroyed can be rebuilt."
The light shines upon the Soldier though no one but him can see it.
"The devil will approach you wearing the face of an angel."
Romero feels good, he reached the Soldier of Light. While he shakes his hand, he feels the grip tighten. The Soldier of Light knocks out Romero Sanchez
David Foster is angry. He, Zane Dresden and Brutus Roberts take out their Horse Buckles.
"HORSE POWER CHARGE!!!!!"
Blue, Green and Red energy consumes them as they transform into Horse Power.
Stallion steps up.
"You wanted a fight Soldier of Light? You just got one!!!"
The three Horse Powers take out their weapons and attack. Clydesdale the Red Horse Power takes out his Horse Hammer and swings it at the Teal and Gold figures head. The Soldier catches it in his Halo and throws him at Mustang, who narrowly dodges his partner.
He runs at the Soldier and in a flurry of movement, attacks with his Mustang Daggers. The Soldier blocks and parries each thrust with his Halo. He executes a picture perfect back flip. The emblem on his chest glows and fires a ray of energy into Mustang. Driving him into a wall.
Stallion slashes him in the back with his Stallion sword.
"Coward, you attack me from behind."
He throws his Halo at Stallion who sidesteps it. The Halo returns harmlessly to the Soldier Of Light's hand. Stallion is back on the attack. Each swing of the sword having expert precision. The Soldier dodges most of these strikes but not all of them. Some get thru and wear down his resistance bit by bit.
"You're very powerful Soldier. You would have made a great ally. But fighting you, I see you lack the training to properly utilize your power."
Soldier of Light is infuriated by the arrogance of the false idol. He fires a blast from the Halo Emblem on his chest, but Stallion deflects it with his sword. As he continues running at the Soldier, his sword glows blue and directly hits the Teal and Gold figure.
The Soldier of Light is wounded but not out.
"You may have more skill than me. But I have conviction and that will always TRIUMPH!!!!!!"
The gold cloth wings on his back come to life and the Halo above his head crackles with an impressive display of power. He flies into Stallion with a blinding speed. Hitting him with several slashes of his Halo. Stallion falls to the ground and Mustang and Clydesdale rejoin the fight.
Using teamwork they surround the Soldier of Light. Clydesdale makes three direct hits with his hammer. Mustang makes precise slashes with his daggers. But it is not enough. The Soldier catches Clydesdale with a punch to the gut. Dropping the Red Horse Power to a knee. With tremendous speed he sweeps the leg of Mustang.
Suddenly he is hit by a high intensity laser blast. It is Sergent Sargent with his laser bayonet.
"Sergent Sargent... You have no powers, what do you expect to do to me?"
"Like you said Light. A man with true conviction will always triumph."
Sergent Sargent shifts his Laser Bayonet into sword mode. The Soldier of Light takes to the air on his wings and at a blinding speed attacks Sergent Sargent.
He turns around expecting to see the Sergent knocked out. Instead he is standing with a big smile on his face.
"Missed me Light."
"I will not miss twice."
He charges at Sergent Sargent only to indeed miss twice. Sergent Sargent hits him in the stomach. The Soldier of Light is hurt. How did a regular person hurt him. He hits the Sergent with a backhand knocking him down. He pulls him back up and headbutts Sergent Sargent.
"You will pay for embarrassing the righteous."
But Sergent Sargent refuses to fall down. The Soldier Of Light takes his Halo and prepares to finish him off.
"HORSE POWER CHARGE!!!!! BRONCO!!!!"
It is the Yellow Horse Power. He has regained consciousness and is mad as a hornet.
"Have it your way Light."
Thursday, October 6, 2011
Romero Sanchez is uncomfortable with this. But Sergent Sargent asked him to go
down to the TV studio where Soldier Of Light tapes "Remmy and Friends"
Music stores that sell MegaSkank albums have been destroyed. Just like
the alcoholic beverage stores. Sarge and the rest of E-Unit are investigating.
Romero was sent to the studio hoping to find the Soldier Of Light.
Romero looks around at the studio. He sees the Remmy puppet. It looks like a
felt basketball with ping pong balls for eyes. He looks over and sees the Mr.Claude
puppet. It is an elephant wearing a old time baseball uniform.
"Sir can I help you?"
"Yes sir, I'm Liberty Corp Elite Agent Sanchez. I would like to speak to the
Soldier of Light."
"Well Agent Sanchez, I'm afraid the Soldier of Light is not here."
"This is where he tapes Remmy and Friends?"
"Not exactly sir. You see the Soldier of Light gives us permission to use his
likeness on the show. The Soldier on Remmy and Friends is an actor."
"Can you tell me how to contact him?"
"Afraid not sir. the Soldier contacts us."
"Thanks anyway Mister?"
"Hicks, Chuck Hicks."
Chuck Hicks is having a panic attack. Horse Power is looking for him.
Going after MegaSkank in public may have been a mistake. The worst thing is he told a lie. Chuck Hicks has never told a lie in his life, until now.
Maybe he was wrong to do these things. Yes alcohol is bad. But did he have the
right to destroy those stores. That was someone's lively hood. Perhaps he was
wrong to destroy those music stores. MegaSkank is vile poison. But but.....
A bright light hits Chuck Hicks.
"Is your faith wavering my Soldier?"
"N...no It is... I am."
"You wonder if you have been doing right?"
"First your current form shames me. Change."
Chuck Hicks brandishes his Halo and holds it above his head and transforms into
the Teal and Gold form of the Soldier of Light.
"Would you feel guilt if you foiled a robbery?"
"No my light. But...."
"Would you feel guilty if you saved a life?"
"Then why do you feel guilty for destroying poison and its dealers?"
"I do not know...."
"Feel no shame my Soldier for I know why."
"Why my light? Please guide me."
"You have fallen victim to the most dangerous poison of all. The kind
that poisons the spirit."
The light creates an image showing the exploits of Horse Power. Showing them
using brute force to destroy their enemies. Showing both young and old alike
showering them with adulation above all things, above all others.
"Do you see my Soldier. They are false idols. They poison the spirit.
They weaken faith, they weaken even me."
"I understand my Light, I will never be weakened by such poison again."
"You can triumph my Soldier. The source of their power is rooted in
darkness. But it can be destroyed."
"How will I find it my light?"
"Trust in your Halo. For it will guide you to it."
Romero Sanchez returns to Liberty Corps base. He wishes he had news for the
"Any luck at the TV Station Romero?"
"Nothing Sarge. According to the producer, the Soldier on the show is
just a guy in a suit."
"Do you believe that?"
"No I don't..."
"What's wrong Romero?"
" I agree with a lot of the things he says. He went after the dealers. I don't think destroying all the Alcohol in Lawnvale has made the town worse, and I think MegaSkank are vile pigs."
"Yeah well whether you agree or not there is a right and a wrong way
to do things.
You don't just destroy one option so people have no choice. It is not
what we stand for. I know it is not what you stand for Sanchez."
"I think we can reason with the Soldier of Light. We can make him an ally."
Thunder Thief walks into the room.
"Yeah that's a great attitude. Look how well it worked for me."
"Why is he not in a cell?!"
"Cool your jets Wagon Train. Since I got the regulator belt on, I'm powerless.
They got me on the honor system."
"This is what I'm talking about!! A creep who hurt our friends is walking free and we are fighting someone who is basically on our side."
"He is not on our side. You were at that concert. You know what he was
going to do, if we did not arrive in time."
A Grunt Patrolmen runs into the room.
"Sergent Sargent, Agent Sanchez, the Soldier of Light is outside and has a film
crew with him. He is challenging Horse Power."
Wednesday, October 5, 2011
The Liberty Corps has been hard at work for the last several days.
Attempting to figure out what destroyed every alcoholic beverage store in Lawnvale Ohio.
Even the alcoholic beverage sections of super markets and convenience stores
have been vaporized.
Sergent Sargent is holding a meeting with the members of E-Unit along with Courtney Hendrix and her brother Curt Hendrix.
"Men we have been looking at this case from every angle. Eye witness reports
are all the same. They were given a warning to leave and then a flash of light
destroyed the store."
Courtney Hendrix asks
"Have the Science Bulbs been able to turn up anything?"
Curt Hendrix answers
"The only lead we have gotten is that the traces of energy are
similar to the energy given off by Professor Necro's Black Light and your Horse Buckles."
"What does that mean?"
"I don't know Courtney."
"Sarge I have tickets to MegaSkank and since we don't have any good leads..."
"You want to go to your Rock and Roll show, instead of staying at the
base, is that it Zane?"
"Well uh yeah."
"You can go. But keep your communicator on you at all times."
"You got it Sarge."
The Soldier of Light kneels in front of the gleaming light. He knows
it is wrong to feel prideful, even in doing good work. But he is unable to help himself.
"You feel satisfaction with what you have accomplished?"
"Yes my light. I have destroyed the poison."
"Yet still they poison themselves."
"How can that be?"
"They poison their minds with the foulest of music."
The light creates an image of a musical group. The Soldier indeed
knows of them. They are called MegaSkank. The group is composed of Three men and a woman.
One of the men has hair down to his knees and wears lipstick. Another
dresses in tight leather and has a mohawk. The last man has multicolored hair. The female dresses in a way the Soldier is uncomfortable even describing.
The Soldier of Light hears their lyrics and sees them on tee shirts and lunch
boxes at the schools he appears at. They poison the minds of children . Yes the
Soldier of Light knows what must be done.
In the Necromizone, a place worlds from our own, yet seconds away if one knows the
correct path. Professor Necro closes the projector he has been using
to speak to the Soldier of Light.
SkeleGun approaches with hesitation. SkeleGun owes Professor Necro everything.
He was chosen of all the NecrOgres to become the first NecBorg. So he would
never question this man without due cause.
"Professor Necro this confuses me."
"Why do you say that dear SkeleGun?"
"I do not understand why you play these games with an Earther, when your goal is
to destroy Horse Power."
Professor Necro looks away longingly.
"My recent attempts to destroy Horse Power and claim the Oblivorex have failed.
From the Grease Monster to the Atomic Bear to the debacle with Thunder Thief.
This time I decided to use an Earther of pure heart and spirit. Give
him a totem of power and let his mind shape it. I will eventually lead him to destroy
Horse Power. His faith will empower him."
"But why such an indirect path Professor?"
"Because sometimes the fun is in the journey."
"Forgive my insolence."
"If you do not ask questions, how will you ever learn?"
The Super Band MegaSkank plays its number one hit "We are the Skank"
"Drop outta school and tell your Mum to flip off!!!!! Listen to us, Megaskank
band Number One!!!!!"
Zane Dresden has looked forward to this concert for months. MegaSkank is his
favorite band. He loved they're first album "Bowel Movements in the Key of
Zane was a little uncomfortable seeing so many kids here, but their
parents are with them at least.
"Okay now listen here. This is a single off a or new album. We call it "Nuts to
As the band begins to play a bright light destroys the amplifiers. A
teal and gold figure floats down to the stage on cloth wings.
He takes the microphone and begins to speak.
"Ladies and gentlemen I apologize for ending this concert prematurely. But this
type of music is poison. As dangerous for your mind as drugs and
alcohol are for your body."
Jeremy St Samuels has heard enough. As the lead singer of the premiere Sludge
Rock band on the planet, he demands a certain degree of respect.
"Hey!!!! Hey you, ya green bucket of gizzards. Nobody interrupts MegaSkank. I
got a half a mind to bop you in da shnozz you wimp!!!"
Jeremy takes a swing at the Soldier only to see the Teal and Gold
figure catch the skinny singer's fist.
"You are no better than the dealers who were poisoning these people."
He tosses St.Samuels aside. Security has run on the stage and pulled
out their weapons.
Zane takes this as his cue to intervene. This could turn very
ugly, very fast.
"Zane Dresden, Liberty Corps. You security guards stand down."
The guards look unsure.
The guards leave the stage.
"MegaSkank you guys are going to call a rain check on the Lawnvale concert."
"Yuh right like Uh'll ever play this stink hole again. It's always sumthin. Last time it was a bloody nuclear bear. This time this sanctimonious fish monger. I can't even find a brew in this dump of uh town."
"I am not done talking to these people about right and wrong."
Soldier of Light holds his halo as if he plans to attack Megaskank.
"So we are really going to do this?"
"Horse Power Charge!!!! Mustang!!!!"
Zane Dresden is overtaken by a Green light changing him into Mustang. The
Green Humanoid Horse Robot.
Soldier of Light takes a defensive stance.
"Fine with me."
Mustang charges at him. Only for the Teal and Gold figure to leap over
The Green Horse Power turns on a dime, before he can go back on the attack, he
is hit by the Halo of the Soldier of Light. The Halo returns to the
hands of its owner. He dropkicks Mustang into the fleeing audience.
Mustang summons his Mustang Daggers. The Soldier of Light walks toward
his foe until he is hit in the chest by two beams of energy. It is from the
augmented sidearms of the Yellow Horse Power, Bronco.
He is not alone. It is the entire Horse Power team.
"I put in a distress call, the second you started your little speech."
Sergent Sargent helps Mustang up.
"Good work containing the threat, until reinforcements arrived."
This is completely wrong. The Soldier of Light did not come here for a physical
altercation with Horse Power. He came to spread the word of light and
destroy the poison.
He holds his Halo above his head and has it emit a light
bright enough to blind even the advance sensors of Horse Power. In the few seconds it takes for the teams vision to return, The Soldier of Light makes his escape.

Courtney Hendrix is sitting on David Foster's couch watching Television. She is watching the latest episode of Remmy and Friends. Originally it was a low rated public access show. But recently it has become a national sensation. The popularity is all due to the Soldier of Light. Who host the show along with two puppets named Remmy and Mr.Claude.
"What is wrong Remmy?"
"Gee Soldier of Light, I can't tell you."
"You must trust your friends Remmy. No problem is so terrible, a friend
"I broke Mr.Claude's Mini Golf trophy."
"Remmy that is not so bad."
"Yes it is. Because I told Mr.Claude, Miss Tiff broke it and now they
are in a big fight. Boo,hoo,Boo,hoo....."
"Do not cry Remmy. What you did was wrong. But telling me was a good start. Now lets tell Mr.Claude what you did."
David Foster comes out of the kitchen with a pizza.
"Courtney how can you watch this?"
"Oh David it's just a nice little kids show."
David Foster stares into space for a few seconds. He does not know why the
Soldier of Light bothers him. He did help Horse Power drive off SkeleGun.
"Oh sorry Courtney. Been lost in thought lately."
"I talked to Curt today."
"And what did your brother want?"
"He wanted to know if I was ready to return to work. The Science Bulbs
are short handed at the moment."
"Every division is short handed at the moment. After that mess with Dr.Howard
becoming a Living Larva and transforming you and the entire base into
"I'm ready to return to work David. My injuries are healed and there don't seem
to be any lingering effects from being transformed. Dr.Howard is the one in a
"We just want to be sure. Personally I'm kind of attached to you."
The station manager walks onto the set of Remmy and Friends. Two of the
puppeteers stand up to stretch and the Soldier of Light walks toward
Bill Sumpton and shakes his hand.
"Another great show Soldier of Light. Ratings have never been
higher. We have sold the show into national syndication."
"Have you scheduled the clothing drive for the Homeless?"
"Scheduled for Saturday. Will you be there?"
"Certainly Bill, certainly. Now if you will excuse me, I have urgent business."
"Hear me Soldier of Light for your work is not done."
Soldier of Light knells in a darkened room in front of a gleaming
light. The light has a soft soothing feminine voice.
"What else is left to be done?"
"The people, they are poisoning their bodies."
The Soldier of Light is now standing upon a rooftop. He watches as a skinny
disheveled man sells a bag of powder to a wealthy man in an expensive suit.
He leaps to the ground. Punching the skinny disheveled man in the jaw. In a fluid motion he spin kicks the wealthy man in the ribs, dropping him to his knees.
He takes out his Halo and destroys the drugs.
He wakes up the disheveled man.
"Friend you are going to take me to your source."
Thus begins the Soldier of Light's crusade against drugs. Over several days he
destroys every illicit drug in the city of Lawnvale. Imprisoning the
dealers and putting the fear of light into the users.
Sergent Sargent sits in the Liberty Corps Rec Room with Zane Dresden
and Romero Sanchez. He is reading the Lawnvale Times Bugle.
"Soldier of Light shuts down third cartel."
"Sarge why do you look so worried?"
"I'm not worried about anything Zane."
"Is it because Soldier of Light gave you the cold shoulder?"
"Sarge I don't feel right about this Soldier of Light guy myself. But
for now he is doing good."
"Maybe you're right Sanchez."
"You have done well my Soldier. But still they poison themselves."
"But how my Light? I have destroyed every illegal drug in the city."
"Illegal!! You concern yourselves with man's law. There are other ways
to poison ones body that do not burden Man's Law."
"I understand my light."
Brutus Roberts is walking to Lawnvale Spirits and Beverages. He does
not drink alcohol, but he wants to buy some beef jerky and the S&B is
close to his apartment. What he sees shocks him. The S&B is now a pile
The owner, Mr.Kim has obviously been crying.
"Mr.Kim what happened?"
"Oh Mr.Brutus I do not know. At 3 am I get a phone call telling me to
come outside. I walk out, see flash of light and my store is gone.."
Brutus Roberts takes out his communicator.
"This is Brutus Roberts. Need a squad of Science Bulbs down on 5th
avenue. The S&B was vaporized and I suspect it was nothing human."
"All available Bulb squads are in other parts of the city."
"The S&B is not the only store that has been destroyed."
Brutus Roberts returns to Liberty Corps HQ immediately.

GP: What eventually ended up on screen?
SS: A character by the name of the Soldier of Light. He did not have many overtly religious references. But looking back, it pushed the bounders for a kids show in the 80s. He was this character who was granted super powers, but instead of fighting villains. Would lecture regular folks about being immoral and worshiping false idols.
GP: Did the show get in trouble over the episode?
SS: There was some squawking from the affiliates. The problem was not with the stations themselves. But you know they sell air time to Tee Vee preachers. They kicked up some dust.
GP: What ended up happening?
SS: We took it out of rotation. It would air occasionally. I got to watch it a few years back on VHS.
GP:Was it in good condition?
SS: Yeah it was in pristine quality. Glen you might find this interesting. Overdog (Sergent Sargent's former wrestling protege) actually has every episode on tape.
You Pray Hello, I Pray Goodbye
Sergent Sargent and Horse Power have been battling the Necronoids for three
hours. Aided by the Necborg known as SkeleGun, the creatures are more formidable than ever before.
They are uncertain what the point of this attack is. It is far from
Liberty Corps HQ. It seems to just be a pointless rampage in the center of town.
SkeleGun transforms his arm into a rocket launcher and fires a missile at City
Hall. Mustang using his super speed, intercepts the blast.
Sergent Sargent runs to the Green Horse Power.
"You alright kid?"
"Yeah Sarge, just a little shaken up."
Three separate squads of Necronoids have isolated Bronco, Clydesdale and
Stallion. SkeleGun transforms his shoulder into a Chain Gun and prepares to
finish Sergent Sargent and Mustang.
"Cease your villainy at once evil one!!!!"
All eyes look up to the roof of Lawnvale Bank. They see a figure in a teal
skintight armor with gold trim. He has an unusual looking gold
cape. As if it were the cloth wings of an angel. A halo of gold energy hovers above his head. SkeleGun grimaces.
"Necronoids, destroy this fool!!!!"
The Necronoids fire energy beams from their Robo Eyes at the
mysterious figure. But he leaps to the ground avoiding the deadly blast. The
Necronoids now swarm the individual. But he takes them down with the elegance
and class of a ballerina, mixed with the viciousness and power of a Bengal tiger.
Despite the Necronoids being taken down in seconds, SkeleGun
is undisturbed. He shifts both of his hands into machine guns.
Before he can fire upon the mysterious man in teal, the man forms a Gold Halo in his hands. Like a world class Olympian, he throws the Halo at SkeleGun, severing both of his hands.
"This is not over Horse Power!!!"
The familiar black door of light takes SkeleGun and the Necronoids
Sergent Sargent offers his hand to the figure in Teal.
"You pulled our fat out of the fire. We appreciate it....."
The stranger walks past Sarge to greet the media covering the battle.
"You have no more to fear from evil. Not so long as the Soldier of Light shines
The Horse Power team have gathered around Sergent Sargent. The hinges on
their helmets open, revealing their bewildered faces.
Thunder Thief sits in his recliner looking very amused. He has just
finished his lobster dinner.
"Why do you look so happy?"
"Sarge I have plenty of reasons to be happy. I live in relative luxury. This
regulator belt your Science Bulbs created turned off my powers. So even if
I'm a Regular Joe, I'm not living in agony. Plus tonight I got to see
you and Horse Power clowned by that Soldier of Light goon. Life can be pretty sweet sometimes."
"Don't forget the only reason you are in this one bunk Marriott, is because
you have inside knowledge about this "Professor Necro". Got any idea why he had SkeleGun and the Necronoids attack the downtown area?"
"Not a clue, from what Ol'Rumpelstiltskin told me, the only thing he cares about is getting his "Oblivorex" back. Would not make sense to attack City Hall. Maybe its a red herring or something."
Sergent Sargent looks very annoyed. He did not want to cut this deal
with Thunder Thief.
After he was arrested during that business with the Heterocera, Horse
Power learned Thunder Thief had been in contact with the mysterious villain who
was responsible for the Necronoids, Greasetrap, Braionic and Thunder
Thief's power upgrade.
Thunder Thief is not stupid. He used this information to get put in a
cell that makes most penthouses look like shacks.
"What do you think Sarge?"
"I think you should shut up."
Sergent Sargent starts to walk out of the cell.
"Oh Sarge tell Laura I'm ready for my massage now."
Sarge fights the urge to punch Thunder Thief and leaves.
The Necromizone, a world that is both a universe, yet mere steps away from our
Professor Necro looks out into the Ocean of Bleakness, when Skelegun appears.
"Sir I apologize for my failure."
"Oh dear SkeleGun, you have nothing to apologize for."
One Week Ago
It is One AM and Chuck Hicks walks the streets of Lawnvale Ohio. He has
been walking the streets for hours. He was kicked out of the Soda Stop
at 11 PM.
Now he walks the streets holding a crumpled pile of paper in his hands. He holds
his crumpled hopes and dreams. He remembers the scene at the TV Station.
"Chuck I like you. I really do. But Remmy and Friends is losing ratings every
"But Mr.Sumpton, we serve a higher cause than just getting ratings. Besides with
this new character, I guarantee Remmy and Friends will get ratings."
"Chuck we do serve a higher cause. But we also have to keep the doors to the
station open. Besides I don't see how you wearing some cheap super hero costume
would get bigger numbers. Chuck I did not mean it to sound like that."
"but my comic pamphlets with him. They they were popular."
"Chuck we can't do it I'm sorry. Your last show is next Friday."
With that Chuck Hicks walked out of K-Pub and went on his milkshake bender.
One thing he notices no matter where he goes is Horse Power. They are all over
the city, posters on the street, TV reports, newspapers and magazine covers. Is it any wonder they are
not interested in his characters? With Horse Power around, who cares about things like real character and morality?
He sees the Burger Barn is still open. He walks in and sees a raucous
party. Well he supposes there is nothing wrong with a harmless celebration. It
appears to be non alcoholic after all. He walks up to the register.
"One Apple Pie milkshake please."
"Sure thing buddy. Here its on tha house."
"What is the occasion?"
"Oh you didn't hear? Horse Power took down that radioactive bear. What wuz it
called, oh yeah Grizzly Atoms. I tell ya buddy, shows real heroes still exist."
"horse power...horse power...."
"You alright pal?"
"horse power.....horse power......HORSE POWER!!!!!!"
Chuck tosses his half finished milkshake at the Horse Power Pinball game.
The Burger Barn clerk punches Chuck in the stomach and throws him out.
"I ain't callin da copz on accounta my bein in such a good mood. But don't come
Chuck lays on the curb wondering how things could possibly get worse when he
runs behind Burger Barn. The combination of too many milkshakes and being
punched in the gut is too much. As he heaves out a days worth of binging, a light
shines on him.
It is a soft feminine voice that instantly eases Chuck's stomach.
"Chuck Hicks you have been chosen."
He looks up, tears in his eyes.
"Yes my child accept your gift."
Chuck Hicks opens his hands, as a Halo is presented to him.
"With this you can meet your potential and save the world."
The halo emits an energy that swirls around Chuck. Transforming him into a Teal
and Gold figure.
"Beware evil doers of this Soldier's Light."

The Heterocera stands triumphant over the now cocooned Thunder Thief. As the
monster roars in triumph he sees Horse Power coming for him. They are flying in
their Hover Power Chariots.
It takes to the air, to fight Horse Power one last time. If It can not transform
them, they will be destroyed.
It does not notice Thunder Thief's Cocoon being struck by lightning.
Stallion gives the order.
"Alright Horse Power, lets bring the Horse Power Hover Chariots together to
form the Horse Power Chariot Maximus."
Stallion's Blue Hover Chariot forms the front of the Chariot Maximus.
Mustang's Green Hover Chariot connects to the rear left of Stallion's Chariot.
Bronco's Yellow Hover Chariot connects to the rear right of Stallion's Chariot.
Clydesdale's Red Hover Chariot lands on the rear of Mustang and Bronco's Hover Chariots.
Together the team shouts.
"HORSE POWER CHARIOT MAXIMUS ONLINE!!!"
The Heterocera does not back off from the awe inspiring site of
It tries to rip Chariot Maximus apart. But finds it is just as impenetrable as the Horse Power armor. Now the monster has taken to striking it. Each blow damages the Merged Hover Chariots. But Stallion is unshaken.
"Chariot Maximus Horse Cannon FIRE!!!!!"
The eyes on the Horse Head on the front of Stallion's Chariot fires. Wounding the Heterocera's chest.
Chariot Maximus circles the sky and prepares another strike. Stallion
again gives the order.
"Now lets finish off the Heteriocera with the Horse Power Chariot Maximus
Combination Power Blaster!!!"
Clydesdale takes out his Horse Hammer and places the handle into the
front of his Hover Chariot.
Bronco joins his Bronco Shooters at the handles and sends it to Clydesdale to
plant on the head of his Horse Hammer.
Stallion tosses his Stallion Sword to Clydesdale, who places the Sword on the
Mustang is last. He throws his Mustang Daggers to Clydesdale, who places the
Daggers on top of the hilt of the Stallion Sword.
Together they yell
"HORSE POWER CHARIOT MAXIMUS COMBINATION POWER
The laser blast hits the Heterocera square in the chest. Sending it
crashing to the ground.
The cocoon of Thunder Thief draws upon more and more electricity. It causes a
black out in three states. Meteorologist are unable to explain the
sudden thunder storms in the area.
The Heterocera is in great pain. It is not only the pain of being struck by the Horse Power Chariot Maximus Combination Power Blaster. No it is a new pain. A pain similar to what Thunder Thief inflicted upon its Xenomoth babies. But the monster senses this new pain is also what saved its life.
With a new sense of power, the Heterocera strikes the Horse Power Chariot
Maximus. The blow is powerful enough to separate the mighty craft.
"Okay how the heck did Heterocera survive that?"
"That's a good question Clydesdale. Lets reform Chariot Maximus and find out."
"No way Bronco. Systems will need at least an hour to reset."
Heterocera is now shrugging off laser blast from the Hover Chariots. With its
power growing ever greater. Horse Power notices the monsters appearance
changing. Its wings larger. Its antennae longer. All the while crackling with electricity.
During the heat of battle, they had not thought to question what
became of Thunder Thief. They assumed he had been killed by the Heterocera. But now they know the creature trapped him in a cocoon and was using its symbiotic bond with it to become more powerful.
"Guys we need to get to Thunder Thief's cocoon and cut him out."
Heterocera sends Mustang crashing to the ground with a single swipe.
Next it flies hundreds of feet into the air and crashes feet first into Stallion and Bronco. Clydesdale takes his hammer and prepares to go out fighting.
When both he and the monster are distracted by a massive explosion. It is
Thunder Thief. He has freed himself from the cocoon.
Heterocera is hit by a massive feedback from this. His excess power is draining away.
Clydesdale knows he can not afford to let the Heterocera escape. He also knows
that Horse Power can not stop Thunder Thief alone.
"Bronco, Stallion, Mustang, can you get your Hover Chariots airborne?"
Stallion answers first.
"Yeah but just barely. You got a plan?"
"I do and it will take out both Thunder Thief and Heterocera."
Clydesdale blocks the Winged Monsters path of escape and fires a laser
at it. It heads in a new direction. But is blocked by Mustang. There is now only one path of escape. It goes in the direction of Thunder Thief.
The monster knows if it can cocoon Thunder Thief again, it can reclaim its lost power. It flies closer and closer to its prey. It has to fire the stream of silk at just the right moment.
It is Horse Power. They fire lasers into the back of the Heterocera, sending it
crashing into the fully charged Thunder Thief. Finishing the creature for good.
Horse Power run toward the fallen smoldering monster. They see Thunder Thief
with a big grin going across his face. Most of his body is covered in
Thunder Thief collapses to the ground.
The team open the hinges on their helmets at the same time and share a look of
This Xenomoth? It does not remember its true name. What it was before the
Larva. It knows it is frightened. Instead of fighting Thunder Thief it fled Liberty Base. It is caught in a door of black light. It does not know where it is. It is frightened by this new place. It sees a man in a tattered robe. His flesh half rotting.
The man places a decaying hand on top of the Xenomoth's head.
"Poor creature. You have nothing to fear for you are home."
Horse Power barges back into Liberty Base fully armed and prepared for
war. But they are surprised by what they see. It is Dr,Hendrix and
Private Bedlam and they are caring for the Xenomoths.
Stallion opens his mask and walks toward them.
"Dr,Hendrix what is the situation here?"
"I was able to find a cure for the Living Larva. When we
came up from the sub basement labs, we saw the cocoons had hatched. But luckily the creatures were unconscious. So Private Bedlam and I began administering the vaccines."
The team hears a cracking sound. They see a large cocoon opening.
"Why did you not apply the vaccine to that cocoon?"
"I..I needed to run more test."
Sergent Sargent falls out of the cocoon. But he is unchanged.
Horse Power runs toward their fearless leader.
"So you boys stopped Madame Butterfly."
"That's right Sarge. But why weren't you transformed?"
"Hmm.... just lucky you boys stopped Heterocera in time. Is that Thunder Thief
"Its a long story Sarge. We can talk about it in the morning. Right now we just
want to get some sleep."
"Y'know Bronco I think I've had enough rest for one day."
Horse Sense PSA
Billy and Jimmy are heading home when they see that a power cable has landed in
a swimming pool.
"Uh oh Billy somebody could get hurt. Lets get that power cable out of
Mrs.Nelly's swimming pool."
"Jimmy we could get hurt."
"Don't worry Billy we'll use these metal poles to fish it out."
As the boys near the cable. They see a horrific sight, It is a humanoid
moth. The creature collapses in a heap.
It is the head doctor of the Liberty Corps Medical Unit. She shot the
monster with a tranquilizer dart. Med Grunts load the creature into the Red
"Boys never try to fish a power line out of a swimming pool with a metal pole.
Instead inform your parents and have them call the Light Department."
"Wow thanks Triage."

http://www.facebook.com/PlanetVictatorThe Heterocera looks at the human. He is covered in cuts, burns and crackles with electricity. It then looks at the Xenomoths, its babies laying on the ground broken and beaten. Instinctively it knows Thunder Thief is the one responsible.
The Heterocera is a creature of instinct. Its only goal is to create offspring. Transform the humans into higher lifeforms like itself. Every time a Xenomoth feels pain, the Heterocera feels pain. It aches deeply inside. It is why it abandoned the fight with the Horse Powers. It must protect its babies.
It stares at Thunder Thief with an intense focus. Distracted briefly by an unhatched cocoon created by the Xenomoths. It wonders why it feels no connection to this cocoon.
"So looks like I drew the attention of King Bug itself. Ugh,huff, grrr. Doesn't matter, You'll break as easily as your kids did."
Thunder Thief stomps a prone Xenomoth in the back causing it to howl in pain. This is enough for the Heterocera. An inhuman roar comes from its mandibles.
It flaps its enormous wings creating a hurricane wind in the Hangar. Clydesdale, Mustang and the Xenomoths are swept up in it. But Thunder Thief stands his ground. Drawing upon more power and putting himself in more agony.
The Heterocera flaps its wings even harder. Now Thunder Thief has dug his fingers into the Hangar's cement floor. The monster flies into Thunder Thief at full speed, sending them both crashing thru the Hangar wall.
With Thunder Thief in its claw it flies into the sky. Thunder Thief draws more electricity into himself and breaks the monster's grip. He leaps to the creatures face and punches it in what passes for an eye. The Heterocera screams and throws him to the ground from 500 feet in the air.
Thunder Thief is already in so much pain, he does not really feel it. He opens his eyes and sees the monster has continued flying higher and higher. It suddenly stops and begins to fly toward Thunder Thief at full speed.
The Heterocera gets closer and closer but before he can crash into Thunder Thief, he is hit by a tremendous volt of electricity. Greater than anything the Xenomoths felt. It knocks the monster down.
"Heh...Argh....Ugh.... Got you..."
The Heterocera leaps back to its feet and wraps Thunder Thief in a cocoon. If it were not a creature of instinct, The Heterocera would be cackling in triumph.
"What was that?!?"
"I do not know Private Bedlam. The base is on back up generators."
"I can't stay down here any longer. I have to go fight that Larva thing."
"I'm tired of you ordering me around sir. "
"Please Private... Mark I need you to be safe. You are so important to this organization. I can't risk you being killed at this juncture and you would be killed. I'm so close to finding an antidote to the Larva virus. But I can't finish if I have to worry about you."
"Alright Doctor, I'll trust your judgment."
Private Bedlam looks at the floor, feeling ashamed at his inaction and Dr.Hendrix returns to his work.
Clydesdale and Mustang have finally gotten to their feet. The tornado created by the Heterocera had nearly knocked them out. They survey the damage and check on the Xenomoths. These creatures are their friends and co workers. They are unconscious but not severely injured. At least the ones not attacked by Thunder Thief.
"Where are they Clydesdale?"
"Looking at this place maybe they destroyed each other."
"Sensors say they're about sixty miles away in the North Haven City limits."
Mustang runs toward the Blue and Yellow Horse Powers. They returned to Liberty Base in pursuit of the Heterocera.
"You got a plan to stop that monster Stallion?"
"Clydesdale for all we know, Thunder Thief killed the Heterocera. In any case I do have a plan."
"That's good because sensors say Heterocera is returning to Liberty Base."
"Alright team lets summon the Horse Power Hover Power Chariots and finish this battle."
Stallion, Bronco, Clydesdale and Mustang take to the Chariots and fly toward a final confrontation with the Heterocera.
Monday, September 26, 2011
"What are you glue pots so upset about? I fried a couple of bug monsters. You
afraid I did it better than you could?"
Mustang charges into Thunder Thief. Hitting him with a series of punches.
Thunder Thief hits Mustang with a volt of electricity that gets thru his Green
Horse Power armor.
Clydesdale swings his hammer at Thunder Thief who catches the hammer with one
hand. With a crackle of electricity, he visibly winces as he throws
Clydesdale into the Hanger wall.
Clydesdale knows something has changed. Thunder Thief even at his strongest
has never been this powerful. Not powerful enough to run over two Horse Powers
at the same time. His power is not the only thing that has changed. He
is covered by severe electrical burns. His hair is fried and his costume in tatters.
Thunder Thief sends a volt of energy into Clydesdale. There is another thing.
Each time he uses his power, it puts him in visible pain. It is almost
like he is not immune to his own powers.
Clydesdale uses his hammer as a cane and pulls himself to his feet. He walks
toward Thunder Thief who increases the force of his energy beam. As Clydesdale
nears his foe, Thunder Thief screams as he unleashes a torrent of energy great
enough to power Lawnvale for five years.
Satisfied he has defeated the Red Horse Power he goes to finish him
off. Right now he does not care about finding the Oblivorex. Horse Power has
humiliated him one time too many. Tonight he'll make them pay one by one.
Thunder Thief feels a sharp pain in his lower back. Mustang hit him with his
daggers. Such a blow in the past would have been enough to finish him. But
Thunder Thief has changed in ways Mustang could never imagine. He swiftly turns
around and grabs the Green Horse Power's face. Sending millions of volts into
him. If not for his armor Mustang would be no more.
Thunder Thief is surprised when he sees the Xenomoths have recovered. They go
to attack again. Covering him in a swarm. If Thunder Thief were feeling like
himself he would fire another volt into the Xenomoths and escape. But he is not
feeling like himself. He is in agony. His head is throbbing, his skin
is burning and his limbs ache.
He smashes his fist into one Xenomoth, cracking what passes for a
skull. He sends twin bolts of thunder into a pair of Xenomoths charging him from each side. He breaks the wing of a moth that attacks him from behind.
He throws his hand into the air and begins collecting electricity. He
intends for his next attack to be his last. Each bit of power puts him in more pain which makes him more determined to do this. As he nears maximum capacity.
He is tackled by Clydesdale and Mustang.
The battle with Heterocera is near a stand still. The Stallion/Bronco
Sword/Shooter Combo Blaster failed. It has recovered and is now battering
Bronco and Stallion. It is taking every bit of power in their arsenal
to keep the Heterocera occupied.
It has Bronco it its grip. The creature is frustrated that Horse Power seems
immune to being cocooned. They can be entangled by the silk that creates
the cocoon, but they will not transform. It has a new strategy and that is to tear
the protective armor off of them. Stallion charges at the Heterocera only to be
pinned to a wall by cocoon silk.
Bronco struggles more and more but it is to no effect. Suddenly the Heterocera
starts howling in pain. It drops the Yellow Horse Power and drops to one knee. It looks to the sky and flies off in a blur. Stallion uses his sword to free himself.
"Bronco did you see where he is heading?"
Thunder Thief throws Mustang and Clydesdale off of him. As he stands up,
he kicks a prone Xenomoth in the side. Clydesdale hits Thunder Thief
in the stomach with his hammer. He follows with a right cross only for it to be caught. Mustang mule kicks Thunder Thief in the back of the head. Knocking him
Thunder Thief responds by dispersing the electricity he collected in every
direction. Even dispersed the energy overwhelms Clydesdale and Mustang.
"Huff.....Huff......Huff ...Grrr......ugh.,.... There that is the end of it. I'll find Stallion and Bronco.....Huff.....argh..... After I find the Oblivorex and get my powers fixed."
Before he can begin his search, the Heterocera crashes thru another
section of the ceiling. It knows immediately Thunder Thief is the
source of his pain.
Friday, September 23, 2011
Thunder Thief walks the Liberty Base grounds. Each step puts him in a
great deal of pain. Instinctively he knows this is how he will find the Oblivorex Crystal. The closer he gets to the crystal, the more pain he is in. He wonders why he keeps searching.
"I will tell you why you continue searching."
"Necro? How are you talking to me?"
"Thunder Thief you should know not to question my power. Communicating with
you psychically is a mere parlor trick."
"How bout you explain why every time I use my powers, it feels like I'm being
"I've been betrayed in the past by Earthers. You are particularly strong willed. Your powers will put you in intense pain with each usage. The only cure is the Oblivorex crystal. Once you find it, you will be immune to your powers again."
"You double crossing little..... ARGGHHHHH!!!!!!"
"Find the Oblivorex, then you can exact your vengance."
Professor Necro's astral form disappears and Thunder Thief continues his search.
Stallion and Bronco fly their Horse Power Hover Chariots at full
speed. Being far away from Liberty Base the Heterocera is easier to find. It has
attacked the High Plaza district of Lawnvale.
"Stallion why is the Heterocera attacking High Plaza?"
"I get you, the Heterocera is still a moth. So it went
to the biggest light it could find."
"The problem is lots of civilians are out shopping."
As they near High Plaza, they see the Heterocera is wrapping people in cocoons.
Each Xenomoth hatched increases its power. The Lawnvale Swat Team is
attempting to subdue the creature. But unsurprisingly even the highest caliber
bullets are having no effect.
The Heterocera tears a wall off of the High Plaza Pizza Putz and throws it
at the brave officers. That would be the end of them, if not for a yellow beam of
energy fired by Bronco's Horse Power Hover Chariot. Stallion's chariot hovers above the Lawnvale Policemen.
"This is a Liberty Corps Operation. Remove the non cocooned civilians from the
As the officers round up the civilians. Stallion and
Bronco attack the Heterocera.
Clydesdale and Mustang have reached Liberty Base. Thunder Thief has left a
path of destruction.
"Should I go scout ahead Clydesdale?"
"No we need to stick together. We have no idea what has happened to Thunder
Thief. Those cocoons were hatching when we left. I don't think
Sarge could survive a fight with whatever came out of them."
Mustang takes that as a cue to go, but with surprising speed, Clydesdale stops
"Look I'm worried about Sarge too. But you running ahead and getting beat up
will not help. Go ahead and get your brains beat in, but I'm not going
into this fight alone."
Stallion and Bronco launch their attack upon the Heterocera. Bronco
dives out of the Horse Power Hover Chariot on top of the monster. This time they are going to keep the fight close to the ground. The giant monster tosses Bronco aside.
Bronco takes out his Bronco shooters and joins them together in Horse Shoe
mode. Firing several shots at the creatures wings. Stallion follows by
slashing the face of the Heterocera. It howls in pain and attempts to escape. But The Horse Power Hover Chariots on autopilot block its path.
Cornered it attacks Stallion and Bronco. Scooping them up in each hand, it
smashes the Blue and Yellow Horse Powers together. Falling to the ground,
Bronco goes for his Bronco Shooter only to be stomped into the pavement.
Stallion leaps at the Heterocera's face, only to be caught by a fresh stream of
The creature has Stallion trapped and prepares to bite his head off,
only for a blue laser beam to scorch his hand. It is Stallion's Horse Power Hover Craft. Stallion scrambles to meet Bronco and form a new strategy.
"We cannot take this thing alone."
"Remember how you and Clydesdale took out Braionic?"
"The Bronco/Clydesdale Hammer/Shooter Blaster?"
Bronco takes out his Bronco Shooter already in Horse Shoe mode.
Stallion places his Stallion Sword on top of the Bronco Shooter.
"HORSE POWER STALLION/BRONCO SWORD/SHOOTER BLASTER
A powerful bolt of energy is fired at the Heterocera. The creature is
compelled to meet the energy head on. They collide sending it into High Plaza Tower.
They see the creature laying on the ground unconscious and covered in rubble..
"I think we got it."
The creature burst free of the rubble and howls.
"Of course we didn't."
Thunder Thief has entered what he thinks is the Liberty Corps Hanger.
It is very dark and covered in what looks like cob webs or white cotton candy.
With each flash of electricity he sees something that would be horrifying for a
He sees what looks like a tribe of humanoid butterflies. They surround a giant
cocoon. Almost like they are expecting their first child. Obviously
something bad has happened at Liberty Base. But that is not Thunder Thief's problem.

"Heh they won't let me leave. I'm the world's sexiest bug zapper."
He powers up and the Xenomoths attack.
He uses brute force on three of them. Smashing them into the ground. The rest
decide to attack as a unit.
"I don't.....Grrrr have time for this."
He releases a charge of electricity that drops the remaining Xenomoths.
"You better pray they are still alive."
It is the Green and Red Horse Powers.
