Krullians- You ask, should we be more evolved? Do you not command your own pets to do tricks? Destroying your world to us is no more than destroying microscopic organisms in a Petri dish!

Panel 3

We see Brother Earth angered.

Brother Earth- So I have no power on this planet?

Krullians- we are aware you become inhumanly strong and invulnerable when standing on the Earth. We will allow your power to continue while standing on Mars.

Caption 1- Seconds before the famous hoisting of the flag, Iwo Jima let a teenaged Japanese soldier go, Izanami the wife of Japans most powerful mythic god saw this and interviewed giving the soldier extraordinary powers!

Panel 4

We see Armor Man

Caption- To explain Armor man's origin we need to take a look back at a series of events that not only gave Armor Man his powers, but Poseidon, Mercury, and many others!

Page 9

Panel 1

We see many gods in battle, a different version than existing versions of Thor, Zeus, Hercules, Apollo, Horus, fighting some unknown alien gods.

Caption 1-In contrast to the myths that are told, the mythic gods really are from the planet Olympus, the elder gods Zeus, Jupiter, Odin, Ra, and Izanagi took Earth wives. had children, and welding the space born galactic energy gave all of them powers!

Caption 2- An alien gods -Earth gods war broke out, and many notable gods such as Thor, Zeus, and demi -gods like Hercules did not survive!

Panel 2-*

We see Kronos, grey battle armor, two large horns sticking out of helmet. Looks like he has a football helmet face mask, one with extra bars, under them a dark plastic like sunglasses, you can't see his face, a lot of red trim on armor. He's running sword through unidentified god.

Caption- Kronos was an elder ruling over his own planet, but that wasn't good enough for him, he craves war is what many believe.

Panel 3

4 elders seen giving Solar Squadron power, wrecking everyone even Kronos, putting a stop to everything.

Caption- Then what some call the council of Asgard would intervene. The surviving elders would be brought home to stand trial for blasphemy, for posing as deities. Kronos would escape justice!

Panel 4

Poseidon scratching head, some other gods standing around puzzled.

Caption- these children of the elders had been lied too, taught they were gods, now they are given a choice to go to Olympus, or stay, but as mortal men, to live among the mortals as their equals, most stay!

Page 10

Panel 1

Armor man seen*

Caption 1- He was an archeologist :thumbs:on a dig in Rome, this is were he would find the armor of the long dead mythic god Mars!

Caption 2- Mars was Jupiter's favorite son. He even gave him an armor that absorbed galactic energy making him stronger than his siblings, or cousins. Still he met his doom at the hands of Kronos, but when Professor Samuel Howard dons the armor it gives him tremendous power!*

Panel 2

We see man, I think of a scarred Jason Stratham(i.d tattoo under eye, numbers and bar code), one eye whited out, scar up and down that side of face. He has green body armor, bdu camouflage pants, black army boots....green gloves,cut off at fingers, military belt with pouches, beige trench coat. One side of coats inside is open and he's reaching into it, his hand inside a dimensional portal, crackling light blue energy seen around his wrist.

Caption - We see a new V.L member.....Surplus!.....He is a soldier from another time, sent back to control zombie infested zones. He was a super soldier in an apocalyptic time, captured by androids and brainwashed and turned into a human hunter, given a jacket that what ever weapon he thinks of, guns, knives, grenades, rocket launchers, martial arts weapons ,futuristic weapons, whatever, he can reach into a dimensional portal in his jacket, and bring out that same weapon!

Panel 3

We see him pull out grenade surrounded with crackling light blue energy.*

Caption 1- He was deprogrammed by the human resistance. The evil android Metallicon believed that zombies who were just a minor nuisance to the battle tested humans of his world, would overwhelm the humans of the past, so he sent back zombie infestations to certain areas around the globe.

Caption 2- Surplus was sent back to control the zombie infestation, but in his time away from that he aides the V.L.

Panel 4

We see split panel in three. Semi-automatic is a black man with go tee. Red mechanical eye that gives him super sight. Black uni and black leather trench coat. We see him put magazine in opening under forearm, opening you can see some machinery, arm part machine and flesh, then we see machine gun barrels pop out from top of forearm, again an arm of flesh and machinery.

Caption- Semi-automatic is another soldier who aides Surplus and his fight, and now is another new member of the V.L!

Page 11

We see Reserve, Latin man. Scarred face, braided hair , desert storm camos, tan body armor. Whole page depicts his power. He pulls glowing door handle from utility belt, next he puts it on ground and it makes glowing outline of door. Next we see him open door. Next he goes down stairs and we see him enter armory, with supply of all kinds of different weapons, then we see him back on ground stacked with an arsenal of weapons.*

Caption 1- Reserve, another super soldier. First he was given a super steroid that helped him become stronger at amazing rates, then another pill that would allow him to learn dozens of martial arts in months, that would take someone many life times!

Caption 2- Android scientists also dabbling with magic and the supernatural gave him the magical handle that gives him access to an always freshly stocked up armory!*

Yeah, ran out of characters on origin of New Olympians and their opponent. Mercury saw a group of unarmed teenagers help out on a mugging. After the death of Ra, he was left in charge of his powerful staff by the elders, being also able to teleport through space, he hid it on a barren planet. But in a special case used it to give the teens powers. Powers of deceased gods and demi'gods. Brief description....kid Hercules is a A/A teen with dreads, and go tee, red and gold armor with chains across chest, and wrapped around forearm. Gold lion belt buckle.

Night Child can control bats. and rats and turn into them, her weakness is a stake through the heart, and she can't see her reflection in a mirror, but if the stake is removed she will regenerate. Bloodstalker is the only one who needs blood, Vampyr lad can turn into mist, among other powers, can't eat garlic!....their leader wears synthetic skin because he can't be in the sunlight, one other weakness is he must be invited in to your home, or he'll get violently ill!....Scott

Derrick White and Glenda B. Jinks Co created Surplus....my friend in a cargo warehouse who used to show me his wizard magazines.....
.originally copyrighted in 2000, I added more and copyrighted it in 2009, never got form back.....just a mystery if they ever got it. In 1988 first version of prehumanoids form never came. can't find it on net either. My wife added some cool ideas to Surplus. One is he throws out futuristic land mines that have some kind of machine like screws, and screw into the ground in front of zombies. That would look cool I think.....thanks for reading.....Scott

Lots of things wrong here. Check out Bolts and Nuts on ComixTribe and read up about classic comic script panel descriptions. You've quite a few rungs on the ladder to climb before your scripts are in a format which makes them easy for other writers to read.

Alternatively, buy one of the books which explains comic formating. Brian Michael Bendis, or the DC Guide to Comics.

Hope that helps!

Sam, great to hear from you, you have commented on more than one occasion, it gives you a lift, that someone cares, and is trying to help. I could be wrong, want to complete the Battle on the red planet, then check out Comix.Tribe, and those books you recommend. Study, then put up a sci-fi story I been working on, hope I show some improvement by then. Thanks again....Scott.....

Don't know who it was, but thanks for the thumbs up on Armor Man, was happy to see that, and that somebody enjoyed the story. I originally thought of that about twenty years ago. Thought a normal man donning the battle armor of a mythic god sounded cool, but why would that give him super human power? Took me awhile to come up with that.....Scott

Hi Scott, I can see that you've put a lot of work into designing the characters and their backgrounds here.

I just had a few thoughts for you if that's OK.

1. I suggest that you put your character descriptions in a separate character profile document. This would allow you to focus on actually telling the story in your script rather than describing your characters.

2. You are unloading a huge amount of information onto the reader in a relatively short space. It might be more enjoyable for the reader if you reveal this information more slowly - drip feed it as your story progresses. If you withhold information at the start in the right way - it could create a hook to entice your readers into turning the page and finding out more.

3. Maybe instead of revealing the Krullians at the very start, you could have them transport the super teams without warning and deviously trick them into fighting each other. Then you could reveal the evil master minds of the conflict right at the end? Just a thought.

Anyway - I'm still relatively new to comic script writing so please feel free to ignore.

I do recommend ComixTribe though - I'm still reading through the Pouch Of Nuts section on there myself.

Good luck with your endeavours :).

Artloader, hey, thanks for taking an interest in me, and the story. That's actually not a bad idea about the separate character profile document, I do load a lot of characters in. I'm hoping people are picturing the characters, like with Dark halfs demonic warrior characters, I can picture them. Yes, the Krullians being more of a mystery would have been a better idea, excellent point. Yeah, like you I'm new to this as well, despite my age, 51. I used to send a lot of characters, to comic book companies, Marvel, D.C, and Archie mainly (some independents), just sketches and brief outlines of the origins. Not a recipe for success, well, not even a possibility now. Jim Shooter sold some characters to D.C in the 60's, that's the only story I have ever read about that. Yeah a controversial guy, but probably a genius, working for D.C as a teenager, wow! .....Scott

08-25-2016, 06:54 PM
Artloader if you get this, can't seem to post on Captain Mothstorm. I like it, can't critique it like those guys, just don't have the knowledge, but from a fans perspective, It was entertaining. I especially like the magic green moths!....Scott

Golden Arrow (name from public domain) Vengeance League N.Y.C member, was in the Olympics for archery. The greatest marksman ever known. He became depressed after there was no way to turn pro, and turned to drinking. He was a homeless man recognized by Vulcan Lad, the kid helped him clean up, then gave him a purpose, giving him a gold crossbow and golden Indestructible arrows all forged by Vulcan himself (know deceased), just one of many weapons left in Vulcan's armory. The arrows can penetrate any known substance, steel, ect...., and most super humans seemingly indestructible body armor. Crossbow attached to right forearm (originally copyrighted in 1987, Sharp Shooter).
