NARRATOR

In our last episode, Mighty Moe and Thunder Girl track down Luscious the Black Tigress.

LUSCIOUS

Look Mighty Moe & Thunder Girl, I don't want to fight you two. And I'm sorry about your car hood, I was just trying to make a dramatic entrance. As a matter of fact I'll even get it fixed, with my new super salary!

Luscious laughs.

MIGHTY MOE

There's no way you can be a real super hero with a villainous laugh like that.

LUSCIOUS

Come on, don't be poor sports about it. I didn't break any laws now did I? Plus we already signed the contract and everything, so let's just drop it, because if this turns ugly, believe me you will regret it.

THUNDER GIRL

Is that a threat, Black Tigress?

LUSCIOUS

Call it what you want, but if you lay one hand on me, you'll be assaulting an officer of the law, and that my dear, you don't want to do. 

MIGHTY MOE

Look here you curvaceous--

THUNDER GIRL

No, she's right. We have no recourse.

Luscious receives a call.

LUSCIOUS

Hold on a second.

(into phone)

Hello Commissioner, how can I be of service?

COMMISSIONER (V.O.)

Black Tigress. We need you. The Third National Bank is being robbed. My money's in there.

LUSCIOUS

Copy that Commissioner. On my way. 

Luscious hangs up the phone.

LUSCIOUS

Sorry kids, gotta job to do. 

Luscious leaves as fast as she came. Laughing all the way.

MIGHTY MOE

Do you realize we're unemployed?

NARRATOR

Now for Episode III.

FADE IN:

INT. COMMISSIONER'S OFFICE - DAY

Mighty Moe and Thunder Girl are sitting in the Commissioner's office, looking board.

THUNDER GIRL

So you got anything else we can do around here, you know, filing, data entry? Hey, you need that trash can emptied?

COMMISSIONER

No, it's already empty. Thanks anyway. 

MIGHTY MOE

How about your car? Want us to wash it for you? I'll even vacuum it for you.

COMMISSIONER

No, I just had it detailed yesterday. But I do want to thank both of you for all your dedicated years of hard service.

MIGHTY MOE

Dang-snap-it, it's not fair!

COMMISSIONER

I'm sorry, but it's not like you were getting paid in the first place.

MIGHTY MOE

But she sure is, dang-snap-it!

COMMISSIONER

Look I'm sorry things ended up this way, but it's done. I signed the papers. Luscious is in, you two are out. 

MIGHTY MOE

We're bored out of our wits. We have nothing to do anymore. 

COMMISSIONER

Okay, go ahead and empty the trash can.

THUNDER GIRL

So how has Luscious The Black Tigress been doing on her new job, may I ask?

MIGHTY MOE

Better than us?

The door swings open. A police officer pokes his head inside.

POLICE OFFICER

Sorry to disturb you Commissioner, but Luscious The Black Tigress just rounded up the entire Seventeen Deep Cartel, you know the one we've been trying to capture for the last--

COMMISSIONER

(trying to get rid of him)

Yes yes, I know which cartel you're talking about. Thank you.

The door closes.

MIGHTY MOE

How did she... We've been after that gang for--

COMMISSIONER

I don't ask, she won't tell. And frankly I don't care as long as we get results, by the book of course.

THUNDER GIRL

If you don't ask, how do you know she's going by the book?

A bit of silence in the room.

COMMISSIONER

I know I haven't known her long, but I trust her. She's getting results we haven't seen in five--

THUNDER GIRL

(upset)

Years? Thank you for your time Commissioner. We'll see you...

(loss of words)

At some point.

MIGHTY MOE

Yeah, and empty your own trash.

Mighty Moe and Thunder Girl exit.  Door slam.

COMMISSIONER

I hear Metropolis is hiring.

DOOR SLAMS.

EXT. CITY STREETS - DAY

Mighty Moe & Thunder Girl stand outside the Commissioner's building.  Street noise.

THUNDER GIRL

I don't like any of this, something doesn't smell right.

MIGHTY MOE

Sorry, I had tuna for breakfast.

THUNDER GIRL

Not that. I'm talking about Luscious The Black Tigress. She just swoops in, takes our jobs and then has the nerve to do it better than us.

MIGHTY MOE

She did fix our car like she said she would. Look, at the hood, you can't even tell where she landed--

THUNDER GIRL

I don't care about all that. We need to get our jobs back.

MIGHTY MOE

So what's the plan?

THUNDER GIRL

First we gotta get something to eat. I'm starving?

They walk to a hot dog stand.

THUNDER GIRL

Hey Donna, how you doing today?

DONNA

(bland)

Okay.

THUNDER GIRL

Wish we could say the same. Ha ha.

DONNA

(bland)

I've got a line forming here. How can I help you?

THUNDER GIRL

Oh, right. Can I get a super dog with the works?

MIGHTY MOE

I'll take the same.

DONNA

That'll be twelve-fifty.

Thunder Girl and Mighty Moe laugh.

THUNDER GIRL

You want us to pay?

DONNA

That's right. It's twelve-fifty, or no super dogs.

MIGHTY MOE

You're serious?

DONNA

Dead serious.

THUNDER GIRL

What's going on? Since when did you start charging us?

DONNA

Since we got a new crime fighter, Luscious the black--

THUNDER GIRL

Please, don't say her name. We know  who she is. You know what, Donna, keep your stinky dogs.

Thunder Girl and Mighty Moe walk away.

DONNA

They're super, unlike you two!

MIGHTY MOE

Can you believe that? She used to be a really nice person. Now she's treating us like yesterday's meatloaf.

THUNDER GIRL

Now that we're not saving the city from crime, thugs and wrong-doers, I suppose everybody's going to want us to pay? Oh how quickly they forget. 

MIGHTY MOE

Dang-snap-it! 

THUNDER GIRL

What's wrong Mighty Moe?

MIGHTY MOE

I just got a text from our landlord. He wants us to start paying rent.

THUNDER GIRL

Dang-snap-it! Looks like we have to find The Black Tigress on an empty stomach.

MIGHTY MOE

To the Mighty Thunder Mobile!

INT. MIGHTY THUNDER MOBILE - MOVING - DAY

Sounding like a super muscle car of the future, the Mighty Thunder Mobile rolls down the street.  FUNKY MUSIC PLAYS over the bus, people, skateboarders and street nosie.

MIGHTY MOE

Where do you think she could be?

THUNDER GIRL

I don't know, just keep driving. 

MIGHTY MOE

We'd better find her quick, we're running out of gas. 

THUNDER GIRL

Hey, turn the music down for a minute.

Music off.

MIGHTY MOE

What's up?

THUNDER GIRL

Why don't we use the Mighty Thunder car computer to run a check on Luscious the Black Tigress to see why she's not fighting crime on her planet anymore.

MIGHTY MOE

Good idea. Why didn't I think of that?

We here buttons being pushed and old Star Trek-like sound effects as the computer does its thing.

THUNDER GIRL

Ah-ha. Just as I thought.

MIGHTY MOE

What does it say?

THUNDER GIRL

(reading)

It says Luscious The Black Tigress', real name Ethel Jurgons, one of many super heroes who protected the planet Gray Pu-Ponda. But was stripped of her super permit because of her uncontrollable gambling and her outstanding debts.

MIGHTY MOE

Bingo! 

THUNDER GIRL

Either she forged her paperwork or she had none to begin with.

MIGHTY MOE

Looks like she pulled one over on the Commissioner.

THUNDER GIRL

There's more.

(reading)

She was not banned from the planet for her unlawful deeds, but rather fled.

MIGHTY MOE

So she's on the run. A fugitive.

THUNDER GIRL

And it's up to us to bring her in. Step on it.

The car's ENGINE ROARS... then begins to putter, coming to a stop.

THUNDER GIRL

Don't tell me we're out of gas.

MIGHTY MOE

Looks like we have to find her on foot.

THUNDER GIRL

Wait! There she is, over there!

MIGHTY MOE

Let's go!

Mighty Moe and Thunder Girl hop out of the car.

THUNDER GIRL

Hod it right there Luscious!

LUSCIOUS

Ahhh. Still in town I see.

MIGHTY MOE

We know you...!

(distracted)

Daaang. Is that a new skin suit.

LUSCIOUS

Yes. You like?

MIGHTY MOE

Yeah, looks nice and tight on--

Slap.

MIGHTY MOE

Owe!

THUNDER GIRL

Stay focused... on your job, Mighty Moe.

MIGHTY MOE

I was just--

THUNDER GIRL

We know you're a fugitive from Gray Pu-Ponda.

LUSCIOUS

Nice work. So what.

THUNDER GIRL

So we're bringing you in.

LUSCIOUS

Just you and the googly-eyed boy?

MIGHTY MOE

Hey, watch your full lips, lady.

THUNDER GIRL

Let's see just how good you are.

LUSCIOUS

You're challenging me?

THUNDER GIRL

That's right. Winner gets the job.

LUSCIOUS

Well you see, I already have the job. What else you got?

THUNDER GIRL

You can have the car.

LUSCIOUS

You're putting up the famous Mighty Thunder Mobile?

THUNDER GIRL

Yes.

MIGHTY MOE

No. That's out of the question. 

LUSCIOUS

I accept your challenge Thunder Girl. 

MIGHTY MOE

No. No way.

THUNDER GIRL

Well let's get it on.

FIGHT MUSIC PLAYS

MIGHTY MOE

Did anybody just hear me? I said it's a no-go!

THUNDER GIRL

Sorry Mighty Moe. You know the rules, once the fight music starts, it's too late to back out.

MIGHTY MOE

Yeah yeah, I know. Now kick her big butt!

The battle begins.  We hear PUNCHES, KICKS. 

MIGHTY MOE

Get her Thunder Girl!

The fighting continues with more SWISHES, SWIPES, GROANS AND PAIN.

THUNDER GIRL

Not bad, Luscious. You must want that car pretty bad.

LUSCIOUS

I do. I do. And I'm also tired of your ugly face!

THUNDER GIRL

We're going to send you back to your planet.

LUSCIOUS

Oh yeah? I'd like to see that.

MIGHTY MOE

Yeah! Now rip her top off, Thunder Girl!

THUNDER GIRL

Will you shut up!

LUSCIOUS

Kind of hard to tell who he's really routing for isn't it?

THUNDER GIRL

You shut up too.

More fighting.

LUSCIOUS

You're not as young as you used to be.

THUNDER GIRL

Yeah, but I'm not a fugitive.

LUSCIOUS

Take this.

Luscious sprays dust into the air.

THUNDER GIRL

Ah! My eyes.

LUSCIOUS

You challenged me, but you weren't prepared for my dust particles.

THUNDER GIRL

Where are you?

LUSCIOUS

Right here!

Luscious lands a blow to Thunder Girl.  Luscious laughs.

MIGHTY MOE

Thunder Girl!

LUSCIOUS

People tend to underestimate the effectiveness of dust in the eyes, until it happens to them.

Luscious laughs.

MIGHTY MOE

Use your wet wipes.

We hear Thunder Girl tear open a package of wet wipes and use them.

LUSCIOUS

Thanks! That worked! Now, back to you. "Lucius."

We hear a LOUD THUNDER CLAP.

LUSCIOUS

Ahhh!! My ears!

THUNDER GIRL

Now who's ugly?! Huh?! 

LUSCIOUS

What?!

THUNDER GIRL

Are you going to crawl on the ground all day like the rat you are, or are you going to resign with a little respect?

LUSCIOUS

Neither.

MIGHTY MOE

(suspicious to himself)

What is she doing? Look! She's trying to get to her left over chitterlings!

We hear another LOUD THUNDER CLAP.

LUSCIOUS

Okay stop! Please Stop!

MIGHTY MOE

Yeah, she's had enough! 

THUNDER GIRL

I'm starting to wonder who you were routing for, myself.

MIGHTY MOE

You Thunder Girl, of course. Now I'm gonna search her to see if she has any gas money.

SLAP.

INT. COMMISSIONER'S OFFICE - DAY

Thunder Girl, Mighty Moe and the Commissioner are having a meeting.

COMMISSIONER

Great job Mighty Moe & Thunder Girl. I hope you accept my sincerest apology. I didn't plan for any of this to happen. 

THUNDER GIRL

Of course you didn't, Commissioner.

COMMISSIONER

Well, the Gray Pu-Ponda police beamed her up a little while ago, so we won't have to worry about her anymore. Welcome back.  Both of you.

MIGHTY MOE

Thanks Commissioner Jordan. 

COMMISSIONER

Once again, this city is in good hands, thanks to...

MIGHTY MOE

Mighty Moe!

THUNDER GIRL

And Thunder Girl!

FADE OUT.
