EXT. VALLEY FOREST – CONTINUOUS

A SMALL BALL OF WHITE LIGHT materializes.

The wind increases and the trees around the light begin
to shake.

The small light grows into a large swirling mist.

The leaves snap off the branches and the trees uproot
and fly towards the mist.

The trees and leaves disintegrate when they hit the
mist.

The area around the mist is cleared of all trees.

The swirling mist gets brighter and rotates faster.

BATTLE GIRL, mid twenties, long black dreadlocks, gold
tiara, Pandora’s Box chained around her waist, is a
black woman dressed in a black/gold body suit and boots.

           Battle Girl, Battle Girl and the
           Staff of Power; tattoo on her skin,

                      CLEVER (V.O.) (CONT’D)
         An elemental woman with a body that
         rocks; chains around her hips hung
         a chatterbox,

         She held in her hand, the Staff of
         Power; an elemental woman, a
         beautiful black flower,

         With eyes of almond, she could see
         the danger; an evil, evil presence
         with a dark, dark anger,

         With creative energy and radiant
         light; Battle Girl knew it was time
         to fight.

                      BATTLE GIRL
         This may be earth’s final hour,
         but I would rather die in battle,
         than to be enslaved forever!

OF ITHACA.

EXT. ITHACA, KINGDOM OVER THE RAINBOW – DAY (FORTY YEARS
AGO)

A majestic rainbow along with cosmic storms and solar
winds enter the planet’s atmosphere.

The rainbow is twisted into rollercoaster-shaped ribbon
bands, which makes up the cloud formation.

The rainbow’s ambient energy provides the eternal life
force, seasons, elements, and nutrients for all life
forms.

Nature is in perfect harmony with itself. This is the
home of the immortals. There is a social structure among
the plants and animals.

During the rainy seasons, the first sign of life appears.
Animal embryo seedpods incubate underground, free
themselves from the soil and blossom open.
                                                           4

The cool plasma pond liquid is home to aquatic creatures
that swim by teleporting themselves.

New species evolve rapidly when animals touch each other.
Exotic creatures and giant flutter flies roam carelessly
through the sky.

When the winds come, each plant makes its own harmonic
music.

Children gather in class to learn how to control their
immortal powers. Each has different powers from the
other.

They learn how the rainbow is the source of their
immortal life and unique powers.

Women and men gather in separate groups. The women learn
about inner strength, transformation of power, and battle
strategy.

The men learn how to understand energy and how to become
a complete warrior.

All immortals are groomed for their future. Graduates of
these classes are given high rank within society and the
emperor’s family.

The thin skyscraper towers are adorned with beautiful
golden lanterns. Each lantern is decorated with diamonds
and rubies.

The Emperor’s Palace is at the heart of the kingdom.

EXT. THE HEAVENS – COSMOS

LUCIFER, eyes embedded deep into his forehead, is a red
angel dressed in a white robe. He is God’s most trusted
archangel.

GOD entrusted his angels with an ancient prophecy that
was sealed in a GLOWING GOLDEN GLASS SCROLL. The scroll
is a piece of fabric from God’s robe.

The ancient prophecy foretold of an immortal a child who
would take his rightful place as God’s most powerful
archangel.
                                                           5

LUCIFER’S P.O.V. – LOOKING AT THE GOLDEN GLASS SCROLL

He steals the Golden Glass Scroll and flies to Ithaca.

INT. ITHACA (FATE’S MOUNTAIN LAIR) – DAY

FATE, black goatee beard, muscular, is dressed in a
silver body suit, cape and boots.

FATE’S P.O.V. – THROUGH WINDOW TO ITHACA BELOW

The people of the kingdom go about their daily activity.

                       FATE
          Fools! Do not they know they have
          the power to conquer the universe?
          They sicken me.

Lucifer materializes in the shadows. His devilish red
eyes glow.

                       LUCIFER
          Immortal, I have a proposition for
          you.

Fate turns around.

                       FATE
                (startled)
          Go on winged-one.

Lucifer shows Fate the Golden Glass Scroll.

                       LUCIFER
          The sight of this foul thing
          disgust me, and I need for you to
          be its caretaker.

Lucifer places the scroll in Fate’s hand.

Fate takes a closer look at the scroll.

                        FATE
          What is it?

                       LUCIFER
          Uh uh uh, curiosity kills the cat.
                                                           6

A BLACK BOX with a golden spiral lock materializes in
Lucifer’s hands.

                       LUCIFER
          In exchange for your loyalty, I
          offer you this!

Lucifer opens the box to reveal the BRICK OF FOREVER. The
SMALL WHITE GLOWING SWIRLING MIST gets larger.

                         FATE
          What is it?!

Lucifer raises his hands and the glowing mist levitates
in the air and enlarges.

A MONSTROUS GOLDEN BRICK ROAD seeps out of the mist.

                       LUCIFER
          Let’s take a walk shall we?

They walk on the golden road and into the glowing mist.
The brick road vanishes behind them.

EXT. DIMENSIONS OF TIME AND SPACE – THE UNIVERSE

They reappear in another dimension of time and space.

                       LUCIFER
          Witness the power of the Brick of
          Forever! By shear will, it does my
          bidding.

Lucifer and Fate travel to the other side of the universe
and visit strange planets. They penetrate the heart of
pulsar stars and red giants.
They delve into the time continuum of black holes and
white dwarfs.

They watch as matter is destroyed and recreated in
spatial reality and unreality.

                       LUCIFER
          I command you!

The Brick of Forever destroys galaxies and solar systems
and rebuilds them within a blink of an eye.
                                                         7

INT. ITHACA (FATE’S LAIR) – DAY

They reappear in Fate’s lair, and Lucifer closes the box.

                       LUCIFER
          And this will be my gift to you.

He places the box in Fate’s hands.

                       LUCIFER
          Oh yes, just one small little
          precious favor.

Lucifer whispers his despicable request in Fate’s ear.

                       LUCIFER
          Kill all of the children in Ithaca.

Fate’s hypnotic stare makes Lucifer smile.

EXT. THE HEAVENS – COSMOS

God holds judgment on Lucifer for breaking the ancient
secret. Lucifer and his followers are cast out of heaven.


INT. BRICK OF FOREVER – COSMOS

Fate walks into the realm of the Brick of Forever and
uses its power to create a thousand soldiers.

FATE’S P.O.V. – LOOKING AT ITHACA THROUGH THE MIST.

                       FATE (O.S.)
          So long have I waited, and now the
          time of reckoning is at hand.

EXT. ITHACA’S CITY– DAY

Fate’s army attacks the golden city.

                       FATE
          Kill all the children and imprison
          the rest! Attack!

Fate’s army pillages and plunders.
                                                           8

immortal dressed in a black armor. A golden heart adorns
the left chest plate.

Fate’s army attacks the EMPEROR’S GOLDEN PALACE.

Thousands of his soldiers invade the palace walls by
using huge black diamond battering rams to break down the
golden gates.

The Royal Guard Captain raises his golden hand-held ram.

                       ROYAL GUARD CAPTAIN
          In the name of Emperor Ronam!

One hundred of the Royal Palace Guards march down the
golden steps to intercept Fate’s soldiers.

The Royal Guard’s awesome fighting skills and magic
powers even the battle and press back Fate’s army.

Fate, standing in his black diamond chariot, watches as
his soldiers are slaughtered by the Royal Guards.
The Royal Guards surround Fate’s chariot and point their
weapons at Fate.

                       ROYAL GUARD CAPTAIN
          In the name of Emperor Ronam, you
          are hereby placed under arrest for
          high treason!

The royal guards line up in formation, open up a pathway
that leads to the palace steps, and kneel.

The emperor walks out of the palace doors. He walks down
the steps and up to Fate’s chariot.

                       EMPEROR RONAM
          You will be executed in shame!
                                                           9

Fate stares at the emperor, looks up at the sky, and
raises his hands. Fate laughs hysterically.

The Brick of Forever materializes on the left side of
Fate’s chariot. The white swirling mist emits dark clouds
and lightening bolts.

The royal guards back up from Fate’s chariot.

Fate sticks his left hand into the white mist and raises
his right hand.

                       FATE
          Killing you myself would be such a
          bore. Brick of Forever, a million
          more!

A million soldiers materialize around Fate, Emperor
Ronam, and the Royal Guards.

GOLDEN BRICK TENTACLES emerge from the Brick of Forever,
wrap around Emperor Ronam and his royal guards,
transforms them into stone and squeezes their bodies into
dust.

Destiny screams.

Fate looks up into the palace window and stares at
Destiny. Fate laughs.

The Brick of Forever glows brighter with each inflection
of Fate’s chuckle.

INT. ITHACA (FATE’S MOUNTAIN LAIR) – CONTINUOUS

Destiny, unconscious, is suspended in air over a black
egg-shaped cocoon. The cocoon is filled with black
liquid.

Destiny faces downward toward the cocoon. Two eyes open
up on the surface of the liquid.

                       FATE (O.S.)
          Destiny, you belong to me.

Liquid tentacles slither out of the cocoon, wrap around
Destiny’s body and pulls her down into the liquid.
                                                          10

                       ETERNITY
          Come child, we must leave this
          place.

                       DESTINY
          There is something I must do first.

INT. ITHACA (FATE’S CHAMBER) – CONTINUOUS

The enclosed chamber walls are layered with skulls and
sharp daggers. A stone gargoyle sits embedded in the
north wall.
There are no windows. The only light comes from the
illumination of the Golden Glass Scroll.

Destiny quickly takes the glass scroll out of the
gargoyle’s claws.

Destiny, Chaos, Eternity escape Fate’s lair.

throughout the gargoyle’s body.

The gargoyle falls dead to the floor.

Eternity enters the chamber.

                       ETERNITY
          Chaos, we are too late to save our
          son. Destiny is pregnant, and we
          must find refugee before Fate
          comes.

                       CHAOS
          No! The murderous dog must feel
          death’s pain... and I know, I know
          what will cause him much agony!
Chaos teleports out of the room.

          Death awaits you demon!

He takes the sword and teleports away.

EXT. FATE’S LAIR – DAY

Fate and Chaos fight with swords.

                       FATE
          One thing is to wield a sword.

Fate stabs Chaos’ right leg. Chaos falls to his knees and
drops his sword.
                                                          12

Fate slaps Chaos to the ground and stands over him.

                       FATE
          The other is to know how to use it.

Fate summons the Brick of Forever.

                       FATE
          I banish you from this realm
          immortal.

Choas is pulled into the Brick of Forever’s mist.

                      CHAOS
          Nooooo!

Chaos disappears.

Fate picks up the Sword of Sadness and teleports to DARK
WORLD.

INT. DARK WORLD’S MAGIC MOUNTAIN CAVE - NIGHT

The Brick of Forever materializes. A golden brick road
emerges out of the mist. Fate walks out with the Sword of
Sadness.

                       FATE
          This should keep you out of my hair.

Fate flings the sword into the air, and it suspends
against the cave’s wall.

                       FATE
          Earth must die!

          Father, I miss you so much.

                       EMPEROR RONAM’S GHOST
          My child, you cannot stay on earth
          for too long. The eternal clock for
          immortals will cease to exist here.

                       DESTINY
          But what can I do father?

                       EMPEROR RONAM’S GHOST
          Fate plans to destroy earth. But
          there is one who can defeat him.
          This is what you must do.

The ghost tells her the plan and disappears.

                        DESTINY

          will do nicely.

Eternity waves her hand, a golden basket appears on the
river bank.
Destiny places her son in basket.

Eternity touches both of the baby’s palms.
                                                          14

                       ETERNITY
          Be of good heart little one. In
          memory of Epoch, I bestow upon you
          the heavenly symbols of the Ancient
          Prophecy of God.

The newborn’s palms glow. Eternity removes her hands.

Destiny opens her baby’s palms.

                       DESTINY
          The Phoenix of Fire.

                       ETERNITY
          It is his destiny and fate to bare
          these marks.

Eternity cast a mystic seal over the basket.

A golden tear from Destiny’s eyes drops into the river.
The blue water changes to a gold.

          Well, I have been keeping
          myself busy and...

One of the stain glass windows above the front doors is
shattered.

SOUND EFFECT: GLASS BREAKING

The glass falls over the fountain.

A rock hits the floor and slides to a stop at Father
Jame’s feet. The priest picks up the rock.

Clever, Father James, and Friar Lee open the front church
doors.

They see the children running away from the church.

Sunlight shines through the broken window and down on the
fountain.

Father James turns around and walks toward the fountain.

                       FATHER JAMES
          It seems, the angels of God have
          delivered us a divine message from
          the windows of his soul.

Father James places the rock into the fountain’s anointed
water and walks away.

Clever stands at the doorway looking at the children.

                      CLEVER
          Darn kids.
Friar Lee walks over to the fountain and picks several
pieces of the black stain glass out the water.

                       FRYER LEE
          These will do nicely.

He puts the glass into his belt’s waist pouch.
                                                          18

EXT. CLEVER’S BACK YARD – CONTINUOUS

Clever’s four sons pull him down on the grass. They all
tussle, and Imani sits on top of Clever’s stomach.

                       IMANI
          Daddy, do you love us?

                       Clever
          Imani, I will love you boys
          forever.

                       JABARI
          Then let us play in the forest.

Clever laughs.

They start back tussling.

INT. CLEVER’S BARN – CONTINUOUS

Friar Lee is filing grooves around the edges of two small
pieces of stain glass.

Clever walks in, lies down on the hay and drifts off to
sleep.

Later, Clever wakes up.

CLEVER’S P.O.V. – LOOKING AT FRIAR LEE

Friar Lee is meticulously at work shaping wire around the
two pieces of glass.

                       CLEVER
          What are you doing?

                       FRIAR LEE
          I’m making something for you.

He finally finishes and gives the STAIN GLASS SPECTACLES
to Clever.

                         FRIAR LEE
          Try this on.
                                                         19

                       CLEVER
         What is it?

                      FRIAR
         Put it on your face.

Clever puts them on and looks out the barn window.

                      CLEVER
         Amazing! Simply amazing. Thank you,
         but how did...

                      FRIAR
         ... I know? I see you squinting
         every time you recite your poems in
         the king’s courtyard.

                      CLEVER
         I know where they’ve hidden the
         eyes of eternity and heaven’s
         intrinsic light. At the stroke of
         midnight like the galactic eyes of
         God looking down upon me, I know.

                      FRIAR LEE
         Where in God’s universe do such
         words you speak are born?

                      CLEVER
         I do not know good Friar. I simply
         do not know.

                      FRIAR LEE
         God’s tongue is your gift my son.
         It has gained you great respect
         and fame throughout the kingdom.

EXT. ITHACA – CONTINUOUS

ACRYLON, grotesque face, long-nose, skinny, is a black
immortal male dressed in silver and black armor. He is
Fate’s spy.

Destiny and Eternity have gathered a small army to oppose
Fate.
                                                20

                      ARMY GENERAL
         Your Highness, Fate’s army grows
         stronger each day we wait.

                      DESTINY
         There is only one way to defeat
         Fate, I must trick him into
         endowing a mortal with the very
         power he wields.

Acrylon instigates unrest among the generals.

                      ACRYLON
         Are we immortals to stand by and
         let our very lives rest in the
         hands of a mere mortal? Destiny is
         mad if she believes man can stop
         the power of Fate. We should lay
         down our arms and join Fate’s
         campaign to purify the universe.

The generals look at Destiny.

Eternity holds a knife to the Acrylon’s lips.

                      ETERNITY
         Shut your treasonous mouth! Let us
         hear no more of your blasphemy, or
         I will relieve you of your dark
         tongue!

Destiny walks toward her army generals.

                      DESTINY
         You know, as well as I do that
         once Fate gains the power that he
         seeks, there will be death
         awaiting us all.

The army generals shake their heads.

                      ARMY GENERAL
         Destiny, we will stand by your
         side and follow you into battle.

Destiny teleports away.
                                                         21

INT. FATHER JAME’S CHAMBER – NIGHT

A wooden desk sits in front of a stain glass window. A
metal cross hangs on the opposite wall.

Destiny materializes in front of Father.

                       DESTINY
          Father, seek out a mortal that
          walks the earth with eyes stained
          with glass. Fore, these are the
          Eyes of Eternity. He will weep of
          a tearless song and will dream of
          darkness in a land paved in gold.

Destiny hands Father James the golden scroll.

                       FATHER JAMES
          My lady, this is madness. How can
          such a man be found? This task you
          ask of me is impossible to fulfill.

                       DESTINY
          Have him deliver the scroll to the
          king. You have five days Father,
          five days. On the sixth day, Fate
          will be your madness.

EXT. MEDEIVAL KINGDOM- (3rd DAY)

The clergy search the villages.

                       FATHER JAMES
          I have used up my resources. Such
          a man does not exist.


EXT. VILLAGE ROAD – (4th DAY)

Father James receives the king’s theatrical play
invitation.

Clever drives Father James to the King’s palace.

Friar Lee sits in the back of the wagon entertaining
Clever’s sons.
                                                        22

                       CLEVER
          Why so sad, dear Priest?

                       FATHER JAMES
          I search for a man that does
          not exist. Time is running out.

                       CLEVER
          Have faith Father, have faith.
          Hopefully the king’s play will
          uplift your troubled heart.

EXT. KING’S PALACE COURTYARD – CONTINUOUS

KING ROHTUA, sixty years old, blood brother to Father
James, is a black man dressed in red and gold royal
clothing.

QUEEN NILREM, fifty-five years old, is a black woman
dressed in a pink and gold gown.

The court yard is filled with guest and visitors.
Everyone is enjoying the extravagant play with its weird
backdrops and mysterious costumes.

Fryer Lee, Father James, Shaka, Najee, Jabari, and Imani
sit in the audience.

Father Jame’s head is down.

Grand music is played in the Final Act. The curtains
open. Clever, dark glass spectacles on his face, stands
on stage dressed in a long black coat, shirt, pants, and
boots.

A dark painted backdrop with a forest scene, large
omnipotent moon, and a golden brick road captures
everyone’s attention.

The audience becomes silent.

Father James raises his head.

FATHER JAME’S P.O.V. – LOOKING ON STAGE

Clever stands with outstretched arms looking to the sky.
                                                        23

                      HIGH PRIEST
               (whispering to himself)
         Destiny’s Decree.

Tears flow from Clever’s eyes as he recites his poem.

                      CLEVER
               (voice resonating throughout
               the courtyard)
         While Walking the Brick, the Brick
         of Glory; a dilemma, a dilemma in
         this strange, strange story,

         Sat a strange moon up in the sky;
         that haunted Clever Clever as he
         walked on by,

         From out of the forest, searching
         for home; Clever heard a woman,
         with an enchanting song,

         His eyelids closed from the Song
         of Weep; and Clever Clever fell,
         into a dark dark sleep,

         Clever Clever dreamed the dream of
         dreams; about a land of darkness,

         where evil reigned supreme,
         Once upon a lullaby, way up high;
         sat a sad, sad moon up in the sky,

         Where rainbow reason and rainbow
         right; cockatoos nestled and birds
         of light,

         There’s a land dreams enlightened,
         enlightened, enlightened; a place
         where time has surely forgotten.

The king and queen watch the performance.

                      QUEEN NILREM
         My lord, what does the young man
         speak about?
                                                         24

                       KING ROHTUA
          Me thinks it is not what he speaks
          about my love, but whom he speaks
          to.

                       QUEEN NILREM
          Why sire, he speaks to his king.

                       KING ROHTUA
          Yes, but when will his king answer
          him? When will he answer?

                       QUEEN NILREM
          My lord, it is now you who speaks
          in riddles.

                       KING ROHTUA
          Madam, I am not that vain to think
          Sir Clever is addressing me. Nor do
          I hold pretense to think that I
          have the power to answer him.

                       QUEEN NILREM
          He is a mystery.

The audience stands and applauds Clever’s performance.

Father James makes his way through the crowd, walks on
the stage and hugs Clever.

                       FATHER JAMES
          My son! I have found you at last.

                       CLEVER
          Father, I have always been here. I
          have always been by your side.

INT. FATHER JAMES’S CHAMBER – (4th NIGHT)

Father James sits behind his desk and opens a small
wooden box.

                       FATHER JAMES
          My son, why do tears fall from your eyes
          when you recite your poems?
                                                       25

CLEVER P.O.V. – LOOKING AT HIS PALMS

The Phoenix birds transforms into the starlit night sky,
space and then the cosmos.

                       CLEVER (O.S.)
          With a heightened sense of
          Discernment, shaped and molded by
          an environment and society that has
          engulfed and entrapped me,

          Unable to command the cosmic forces
          of my universe, here I stand! A
          Galactus snared and bound by man’s
          rule which feeds on the very core
          that sustains life, my eternal
          spirit,

          Like a butterfly that transcends
          its earthly bounds, I too thirst;
          yet sealed into a cocoon that is
          glass-fashioned into a cast system
          is my fate,

          A man voyaging through time itself-
          searching for the answer to his
          question. A sentient being endowed
          with super ability, but stripped of
          the catalyst to unleash cosmic
          power,

          Am I the inescapable result of
          trilogies long ago? But what if I
          am me- A Hero of Antiquity.

The cosmos transforms back into the Phoenix birds.

                       CLEVER
          Father, my poems take me away to
          distant worlds. They cleanse the
          very core of my essence, and they
          are my secret prayers to God for
          redemption.

Father James hands Clever the scroll.
                                                       26

                       FATHER JAMES
          Then you are truly the one she
          seeks. Our kingdom is in great
          peril, and you are chosen to
          deliver it to the king.

                         CLEVER
          But, why me?

                       FATHER JAMES
          It is your destiny and your fate,
          and these you cannot question. But
          most importantly my son, I believe
          it is the will of God. The answer
          that you seek is here. Now go.

INT. CLERGY MEN’S MEETING CHAMBER – CONTINUOUS

FATHER BAIN, early fifties, bald head, is a black clergy
man dressed in brown monk’s clothing.

He plots to kill Clever.

                       FATHER BAIN
          Brothers, why should Clever
          be chosen to deliver the scroll.
          Are we not worthy of this task?
          Have we not more tenure in the
          priesthood than he. He makes a
          mockery of us all. I say he needs
          to be taught his place among us!

INT. CLEVER’S HOUSE (CLEVER’S ROOM) - (5TH DAY)

Clever sleeps in his bed, and the palms of his hand began
to glow. He wakes up and finds the glass scroll missing.

                       CLEVER
          Oh no! Where is it?

Clever hurries to Friar Lee’s room.

                                                          27

                      CLEVER
         Did you see my scroll?

                        FRIAR LEE
         What scroll?

They hear a voice coming from the boy’s room.

INT. BOY’S ROOM - CONTINUOUS

Imani, with Clever’s spectacles on his face, holds the
scroll in his right hand and points it towards the

as he imitates his father.

IMANI’S P.O.V – LOOKING AT THE DOOR

Clever and Friar Lee open the boy’s door.

CLEVER’S P.O.V – LOOKING AT IMANI

Clever picks Imani up and kisses him on the forehead.

                      CLEVER
         Give me that.

Clever takes the scroll and his spectacles from Imani.

                      IMANI
         Aah daddy! You’re always
         spoiling our fun.

                      CLEVER
         I must hasten to the church. Take
         heed to the Friar’s words. Behave
         while I’m gone and don’t go playing
         in the forest.

The boys look at each other.
                                                       28

                 (pointing)
           Brother Clever! We can reach the
           the king’s castle faster if we go
           through the forest!

The men ride into the forest.

                                                          29

CLEVER –

and Father Bain are last two alive.

                        FATHER BAIN
                 (stabs Clever in his
                 right side)
           You should have stayed on stage
           poet!

Clever counter-attacks with his sword and stabs Father
Bain in the heart. Father Bain falls off his horse and
dies on the ground.

Clever holds onto the reins and becomes unconscious. His
horse carries him down the road.

EXT./INT. KING’S FOREST ROAD/GOLDEN BRICK ROAD/ENCHANTED
FOREST/STRANGE WOODEN COTTAGE – LATER

KING’S FOREST ROAD

A SWIRLING WHITE MIST materializes. THICK GOLDEN LIQUID
flows out the mist, covers the road and soaks into the
ground. The mist spreads out into the forest.
A thunder storm starts. Clever’s horse wanders through
the mist.

GOLDEN BRICK ROAD

The liquid rises back to the surface and changes into
GOLDEN BRICK PAVEMENT. The horse rears terrified and
whinnies.

Clever loses his grip on the reins, falls off his horse
and onto the golden pavement.

The horse runs away.

ENCHANTED FOREST

Destiny appears and sings her SONG OF WEEP.

GOLDEN BRICK ROAD

Clever, waking up in a puddle of water and blood,
staggers to his feet.
                                                         30

                       CLEVER
          That beautiful sound.

He wanders aimlessly down the golden brick road.

                         CLEVER
          Where is it?

Clever walks off the brick road and wanders deep into the
brush.

OUTSIDE STRANGE WOODEN COTTAGE

Clever makes his way through the forest brush and to the
doorsteps of a cottage. The cottage’s sides are merged
into the trunks of two enormous trees.
Clever opens the cottage’s door and staggers inside.

INSIDE STRANGE COTTAGE

The door closes shut, and Clever collapses on the floor.

Destiny’s magical song forms a protective blue barrier
around Clever’s body. The barrier secures him to the
floor and heals his wounds.

OUTSIDE STRANGE WOODEN COTTAGE

Destiny’s song forms an indestructible barrier around the
cottage.

Destiny vanishes.

EXT. SKY – CONTINUOUS

The Brick of Forever appears. The golden brick road comes
out of the mist. Fate walks out and raises his hands.

                       FATE
                (shouting)
          Tornado of Terror, heed my dark
          ploy! Send the winds of terror!
          This mortal destroy!

SOUND EFFECT: WIND AND THUNDER
                                                          31

The clouds turn dark and spin into a rampaging tornado.
The tornado snaps off the top of the two trees, uproots
them and propels the cottage up into the dark clouds.

Large pieces of debris smash into pieces as they collide
into the cottage.

SOUND EFFECT: DEBRIS SMASHING INTO PIECES

The cottage disappears into the dark thunder clouds.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          While suspended in time,
          unconscious and unable; Clever was
          taken by a whirling wild tornado,

          This was not an ordinary storm;
          mystical, mystical magic began to
          form,

          Caught in a vortex he could not
          discern; ecstatic, ecstatic and the
          house did burn,

          Out of reality and out of touch;
          fire without heat there was no such
          luck!

Fate sees the cottage has not been destroyed.

                       FATE
                (vexed)
          Meddling witch!

Fate banishes the cottage to Dark World.

                       FATE
          From the nights of decadents,
          into your mouth I do hurl!
          Banish Destiny’s champion to
          Dark Dark World!

Fate vanishes.
The tornado pulls the cottage into its dimensional time
portal vortex.

Destiny’ face appears in the clouds.

          What’s that?

They run towards the direction of the scream and find
Battle Girl lying unconscious.
                                                       34

The boys stand over her.

                         IMANI
          Who is she?

                         JABARI
          Is she hurt?

Shaka picks up the Staff of Power.

                       NAJEE
          See if you can wake her up Shaka.

The golden scrolls begin to glow.

                         IMANI
          Look! Ooooh.

The scrolls float to each boy and magically open in their
hands.

The boys look at each other.

                       NAJEE
          What does yours say Jabari?

                       JABARI
          With the stare of darkness and the
          power to attack. I call upon the
          power of the quizzel, quizzel cat.

Imani points at Jabari.

                       IMANI
                (teasing)
          Meow! Meow! You’re a Quizzel Cat, a
          Quizzel Cat!

                       JABARI
          Imani, stop playing around and read
          yours.

                       IMANI
          With wisdom and cunning and
          Eternity’s Ten. I summon the power
          of darkness and sin.
                                                         35

          This doesn’t make sense.

                       SHAKA
          Eternity and Chaos, the reasons of
          time. I call upon the power, Jamair
          be mine.

                       IMANI
          Jamair? Now who the heck is he?

                       SHAKA
          What does yours say Najee?

                       NAJEE
          With the power of Chaos, a plan to
          attack. I call upon the universe
          to carry me on its back.

Shaka squeezes Najee in his stomach.

                       SHAKA
          How can the universe carry you on
          its back?

Najee pinches Shaka on the ear.

                       NAJEE
          Like this.

The scrolls tattoo themselves on each boy’s chest, and
their bodies burst into golden sunlight.

Shaka transforms into JAMAIR.

Jamair, fourteen years old, dressed in Arabian clothing,
is a golden boy wearing glowing cross pendant.

Najee transforms into UNIVERSAL MAN.

Dark N’ Love, eight years old, is a golden boy dressed in
Arabian clothing with energy bands radiating from his

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          A glow of wonder, a glow of light;
          Golden Age Heroes to even the
          fight,

          Four boys of man of pain and girth;
          The sons of Clever, the protectors
          of earth,

          Two appeared with the power to
          attack; the other the universe
          carried on its back,

          The fourth one came like lightning
          from a hat; he awoke from his sleep,
          Like a Quizzel Quizzel Cat,

          There they stood, six minus ten;
          his four forever, the Forever Men.

The four lace scrolls shoot golden rays at the Staff of
Power.

THE STAFF OF POWER -

glows, floats out of Jamair’s hand and shoots cosmic fire
at Pandora’s Box.

Pandora’s Box opens.

CHATTERBOX, soul-energy girl of light, flies out of
Pandora’s Box.
                      CLEVER (V.O.)
          Their combined powers formed a
          lock; a secret hidden door to
          Pandora’s Box,

          Into the cube and into her box;
          Battle Girl’s soul and infinite
          locks.
                                                          37

Chatterbox merges with Battle Girl’s body.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Two souls merged, infinite might;
          a wonder, a wonder, a forever
          light.

Battle Girl, body radiating with green, gold, and red
light, opens her eyes and stands up.

                      CLEVER (V.O.)
          Warrior of battle, locks of twirl;
          her body transformed, Forever Girl,

          Forever Men and the Girl of Light;
          warriors created to even the fight,

          I seek and audience! I require a
          band! Serve me convicts and prepare
          this land!

The golden road seeps out.

BO PEEP, large pregnant demon-rat, lead out on a long
chain leash, crawls from the spiraling mist.

Bo Peep looks around and opens its mouth.

SOUND EFFECT: LOUD CREATURE SCREAM

Bo Peep starts walking down the brick road.

A hand holding the leash appears out of mist.

Four shadowy figures walk out of the mist. SLICK, JILL,
GORIAN, and the PIPER OF PERIL stand on the brick road.

Gorian holds the leash.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Out of the darkness and out of the
          mist; four shapes appeared with a
          dreary, dreary twist,

          As the mist dissipated and the fog
          took shape; evil dark magic came to
          this place,

          Convicts of morality, a squad of
          goons; watch out earth and give
          them room,

          Heralds of Galactus, warriors of
          Fate; four troubled souls, paroled
          by hate,

          Their plan was wicked, that would
          give birth; a despicable plot to
          impregnate the earth,

                                                          39

                      CLEVER (V.O.) (CONT’D)
         One had a spoon with a dreary,
         dreary bowl; one had a bucket
         that was made of gold,

         One had a pipe, the pipe of
         deceit; a little fat rat,
         that they called Bo Peep.

Jill, dragging a skinny teenage boy, walks out in front
and steps off the brick road.

                      CLEVER (V.O.)
         Her name is Jill and she’s a pill;
         she slaughtered poor Jack up on the
         hill,

         Jill, Jill, an evil girl; sent by
         Fate to destroy the world,

         Then she smiled and counted to ten;
         and summoned her magic with an evil
         grin,

                      JILL
         One, two, three, four, five, six,
         seven, eight, nine, ten.

                      CLEVER (V.O.)
         To gain eternal power, power
         untold; she drowned poor Jack in
         a bucket of gold,

Jill sticks the boy’s head in the bucket of gold liquid.
The boy struggles for a second and finally stops moving.

Jill summons JACK THE RIPPER.

                      JILL
         Arise from the crypt Jack! Arise
         from the gold! Drown these poor
         mortals, as I did your soul!

JACK THE RIPPER, spirit-demon dressed in fifteenth
century clothing, wielding his Blade of Damnation,
emerges out of the dead boy’s body.
                                                         40

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          So out Jack came, a pickled dill;
          from the realm of brimstones, to
          kill, kill, kill!

                       JACK THE RIPPER
          I’m not from the nursery, and I
          don’t feel well! I’m Jack the
          Ripper from the pits of hell!

Slick places the beans in the bowl and stirs them with
the golden spoon.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          He placed the beans in the Singing
          Gore; the Phantoms of Famine came
          to the door,

          He stirred his spoon, his spoon of
          gold; demons of darkness screamed
          from the bowl.

SOUND EFFECT: DEMON SCREAMS

Slick scatters the glowing beans on the ground.

CURSED MAGIC BEANS -

take root; gruesome-looking vines grow and spread for
miles in every direction.

EXT. GARDEN OF HELL - CONTINUOUS

Jack the Ripper flies around summoning the Soul-Serpent.

                       JACK THE RIPPER
          Bean stalk, bean stalk in the sky!
          With the soul of a serpent, way up
          high!

          With the beans of terror in my
          hand, and the recipe of darkness at
          my command!

          Please do, please do, please do
          tell! Come out, come out from the
          garden of hell!
                                                         41

The vines began to RAPIDLY TWIST TOGETHER and GROW
towards the sky.

Jack the Ripper flies up and around the growing vines.

Demons start to sprout out from the vines’ blossoms.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Out came a sprout from the womb of
          birth; and delivered the demons
          unto the earth.

The twisting vines start to morph into a massive
serpent’s body.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Out from the earth and out from the
          dirt; the shape of a serpent, with
          fangs of hurt.

The growing vine morphs into a giant scaly snake-head.
The snake’s mouth opens and its fire tongue slithers out.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Serpent hide tough, tough as pork;
          out from his mouth came a sharp
          fire-fork.

One large eye appears on the snake’s head.

                         CLEVER (V.O.)
          The taller it grew, way up high;
          the bean stalk captured the
          serpent’s eye.

          So the bean stalk grew and then
          went bold; a Dark Disciple of times
          of old.

Jill pours the liquid gold on the vines, and the
serpent’s claws morph into long spears.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          She watered the garden with the
          pail of tears; and the serpent’s
          claws became long-sharp spears.
                                                       42

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Their combined powers formed a
          lock; a secret hidden door to
          Pandora’s Box.

Chatterbox emerges out of the golden box and swirls
around Battle Girl.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Out of the cube and out of her box;
          Battle Girl’s soul and infinite
          locks.

Battle Girl recites another poem.

                       BATTLE GIRL
          Away from the yard! A journey of

Cosmic flames burst out of the Staff of Power and

EXT. GARDEN OF HELL - CONTINUOUS

PHANTOM OF DOOM, time traveller, wears a big long hat,
is a spawn of the Piper of Peril.

The Piper of Peril plays his flute and dances on the
Soul-Serpent’s branches.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The Piper of Peril, creditor of
          gloom; collector of souls, danced
          under the moon.

The Piper of Peril transforms into the PHANTOM OF DOOM
and flies down to Bo Peep.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The Piper of Peril, a wicked tune;
          down from the bean stalk, the
          Phantom of Doom,

          With the power to make you take a
          nap; a traveler of time with a big
          long cap,

          He stole Death’s formula while
          Death did sleep; laws of time and
          it did keep,

Bo Peep open its mouth.

The Phantom of Doom takes out a vile from under his hat
and pours the black liquid into Bo Peep’s mouth.

                       CLEVER (V.O)
          The ripple of time, he took from
          his hat; and poured it into the big
          fat rat.

Bo Peep’s stomach starts to move.
                                                       44

                       CLEVER (V.O)
          Little Bo Peep didn’t lose his
          sheep; in his stomach they did
          sleep.

Bo Peep stomach opens up, and FOUR APOCALYPTIC JADED-RAMS
crawl out.

                       CLEVER (V.O)
          Out from his stomach, he gave
          birth; out they came to destroy the
          earth,

          Four jaded rams of significant
          evil; out they road, this unholy
          upheaval.

Gorian raises his hands to the sky.

          Fire from the heavens and fangs of
          focus!

Fire shoots down from the sky and hits the four
rams.
The fire morphs into demon horses, and the four rams
mount them and ride off in different directions.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          They road their horses fierce and
          mean; rams of darkness and fiendish
          fiends,

          Four corners of the world and they
          didn’t stop; a race against time
          and infinity’s clock.
                                                       45

EXT. MOUNTAIN CLIFF - CONTINUOUS

The Forever Men fly off to stop the deadly rams.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          They had to stop them, they had to
          meet; the boys of forever, battle
          and defeat,

          A map in need to navigate the land;
          they had to stop their evil plan,

          One flew north, east and west;
          navigate south to do their best.

EXT. SKY – CONTINUOUS

The Brick of Forever appears, morphs into BRICK TENTACLES
and snares the Forever Men.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Fate saw his plan would be given a
          twist; he had to stop them on his
          list,

          With one billiard shot he did hold;
          he imprisoned the boys in his
          dimensional road,

                       FATE
          Where are you going boys? I’m a
          pro. I’ll knock you down unto the
          floor,

          With the ripples of time and the
          names of old, seal these mortals,
          forever road!

The Brick of Forever MERGES the Forever Men’s bodies into
the brick road.

The Brick of Forever disappears.

                                                          46

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Hope is gone this day tomorrow; a
          world of doom; a world of sorrow.

The rams bury themselves halfway in the ground, and their
bodies burst open.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The rams were free to taint the
          earth; they planted their seeds,
          and they gave birth.

FIRST JADED RAM

Trillions of Rodents crawl out.

SECOND JADED RAM

Trillions of flies come out.

THIRD JADED RAM

Trillions of locus fly out.

FOURTH JADED RAM

Trillions of snakes slither out.
 An infectious plague spreads across the world.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Sickness and darkness spread
          through the land; Fate had
          unfolded his evil plan.

Humans, animals, and plants began to die around the
world.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Like a comet of fire from out of
          space; came Clever, Clever, Clever,
          through a three-dimensional gate,

          A meteorite shower, a flying Trojan
          horse; no navigating system, a
          collision, collision course,

          Like a comet of fire to the land of
          hate; came Clever, Clever, Clever,
          from out of space,

          The wind was furious, the sky was
          dark; the house lit up heaven like
          a giant, giant spark,

          Towards a dark empire, towards a
          dark world; came Clever, Clever,
          Clever and the house that swirled.

The cottage smashes through the mountain.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)

          the hand of god upon the eastern
          slopes.
                                                          48

INT. WITCH’S CASTLE CHAMBER – CONTINUOUS

MIB, black nails, long black hair, beautiful face, is a
Wicca Witch dressed in a long black tattered dress is
preoccupied deciphering the TABLETS OF STONE.

Torches illuminate the animal and human skulls that stick
out of the chamber walls.

STRANGE COTTAGE

crashes through the MIB’S chamber and pins her against
the wall. Green blood oozes out of her chest.

Mib slowly closes her eyes and tightly clutches the stone
tablets in her left hands.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Smite, smite, smite, crashing
          through the hall; the house nailed
          the witch against the evil wall,

          Was this the will of destiny or the
          cruel trick of fate; to put him on
          a world where there was so much hate.

Clever staggers out of the cottage’s doorway.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Smoke filled his lungs, dizzy and
          bothered; stumbling out of the
          crash and this she did holler.

                       MIB
          Vile acid blood seeping from my
          heart!

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Clever, Clever, terrified at this
          ghastly wicked art.

Clever checks Mib’s pulse.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          His heart made of gold, he checked
          her dying pulse.
                                                          49

Clever tries to pull the tablets out of her hand.

Mib OPENS her EYES and grabs Clever.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          A last instinctive instinct with an
          electric evil jolt.

Green electricity flows out of Mib’s hands and courses
through Clever’s body. Clever screams.

Mib lets him go, and she melts into the wall.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          He screamed in horror and fell in
          pain; a sinister wicked deed from
          evil, evil Jane.

Stunned, Clever stumbles backwards.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Losing reality in the dark, dark
          hall; stumbling back, back, and he
          did fall.

Clever falls to the floor unconscious, and the tablets
fall next to him.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          He hit the floor with a force so
          hard; it knocked Clever out like a
          deck of cards.

          There they lay in the room of fate;
          a man created by destiny and a
          woman destroyed by hate,

TABLETS OF STONE -

glow, melt, flow around Clever’s wrists, and morph into
stone bracelets.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The stone, stone tablets she held
          clutched in her hands; melted
          around the wrist of the genius,
                       (MORE)

          Bracelets of stone, an amazing
          wondrous site; bestowed upon Clever
          on this dark, dark night.

Clever wakes up.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Startled as he woke...

                       CLEVER
                (startled)
          ... What hit me man?

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          He looked around the room and then
          at his hands.

Clever looks at his wrists.

                        CLEVER
          What!

Clever hears something approaching and stands up.

INT. CASTLE HALLWAY - CONTINUOUS

Dark creepy multi-legged human-like claw creatures chase
Clever.
                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The creatures in the hall, sang the
          song of hate; and chased Clever,
          Clever to Forbidden Gate.

Clever runs outside of the castle.

EXT. FORBIDDEN GATE/FORBIDDEN WALL – CONTINUOUS

FORBIDDEN GATE

Clever runs out of the gate, and the creatures stop at
the gate.

FORBIDDEN WALL

Clever climbs up the wall.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Losing his sanity, but not his
          mind; Clever, Clever frantic and he
          did climb,

          Clever found his way out of the
          evil, evil hall; and made his way
          down Forbidden Wall.

                       CLEVER
          A world of darkness. A land of
          hate. How could any, anyone live
          in this place?

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Clever pondered a thought, how long
          would it last; he knew he was the
          result of an inescapable past.

Clever climbs down Forbidden Wall and runs towards DARK
FOREST.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          He ran to Dark Forest and this he
          did zoom; he flew like the cow
          jumping over the moon,

          Out of the fire and into the pan;
          ran Clever, Clever, Clever and the
          bracelets of sand.

Clever runs into the forest.

SOUND EFFECT: THUNDER AND LIGHTNING

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The forest was thick, up in the
          sky; thunder-energy, thunder-
          energy, bolts up high,

          The wind did blow and the trees
          did shutter...

The trees scrape against each other.

                       CLEVER
          ... What was that sound?

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          And this he did utter.

                       CLEVER
          Up in the sky sits a dark, dark
          moon. Down in the forest lurk
          creatures of doom.

EXT. FOREST CLEARING - CONTINUOUS

KILLER KLAW, hypnotic grin, claw hands, is a black straw
scarecrow man who wears a black hat, boots and an eerie
cape.
Clever looks up and sees a GOLDEN SCARECROW pent to a
tree by a LARGE GOLDEN NAIL. The nail is driven through
the scarecrow’s chest.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          He came to a clearing and what did
          he see; a golden scarecrow nailed
          to a tree,

          Upon his face, pain and anger; a
          man made of straw with redemptive
          danger,

          Upon his face, a scary, scary
          grin; a hypnotic smile and death
          within.

                       CLEVER
          What is this thing, this
          listening grin, with the heart of
          shadows and the souls of men?

Small creatures sit on the scarecrow’s shoulder.
                                                        53

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The creatures that sat perched on
          his shoulder; this they did chant,
          over and over.

                       CREATURES
          If you let him down, he will
          destroy! Beware the crow man, the
          Hero of Troy!

Clever reads the sign that is nailed to tree’s trunk.

                      CLEVER (V.O.)
           A map in need to navigate the
           land; Clever perplexed by the
           sign-post stand.

                       CREATURES
          The nail! The nail! The Nail of
          Law! Beware, beware, the man made
          of straw!

Clever climbs up the tree and struggles to pull the nail
out of Killer Klaw’s chest.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Clever saw his anguish
          and Clever felt his pain;
          he knew the golden nail,
          was the deadly, deadly stain,

Clever pulls the nail out and falls out of the tree.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The golden nail, thrust so far;
          Clever pulled it out of the straw
          man’s heart.

Killer Klaw flies into the air and screams.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          With an eerie scream.

                       KILLER KLAW
          I’m Free! I’m Free! Face me
          demon who opposes me!
                                                         54

Clever looks up.

Killer Klaw’s transforms into a black hideous scarecrow.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Clever, Clever, Clever, upon his
          face; he saw a vision, he knew he
          would hate,

          The golden straw turned black,
          black, black; he knew the crow man
          had the power to attack,

          Straw-face black, black as tar.

Clever gets up and runs away.


EXT. DARK FOREST - CONTINUOUS

Clever runs through the forest.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Clever took off but didn’t get far.

Clever trips and falls to the ground.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          He tripped on fear, this he would
          endeavour; down to the ground went
          Clever, Clever, Clever.

Killer Klaw transforms his body into a swarm of razor-
sharp straws.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          With bitterness and anger in his
          heart; he lashed out at Clever from
          near and far.

The straw swarm flies after Clever.


                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Razors of straw followed this lad,
          Clever looked up and he was sad.
                                                        55

The straw swarm hovers over Clever.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          In a quick, quick flash, the
          scarecrow zoomed; over Clever,
          Clever, he did loom,

          The air was filled with straw and
          hay; the scarecrow made a vow, his
          enemy he would slay.

Killer Klaw summons millions of black crow-creatures.

                       KILLER KLAW (O.S.)
                (shouting)
          With the power of knowledge and the
          power I command, I summon the power
          of the scarecrow man!

The crow-creatures swarm through the forest.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          From out of the forest, the sound
          he heard; a million, a trillion
          crow-matic birds.

The straw-swarm morphs back into Killer Klaw.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The straw took shape, sharp as a
          saw; the scarecrow’s hands turned
          killer-claw.

                       KILLER KLAW
          Pick his bones! Pick them clean!

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Clever looked up and he was mean,

          As he summoned the power, the power
          of the straw; what do you think the
          crow man saw?

          Clever held his arms above his
          face; he would surely die without a
          trace.
                                                      56

Killer Klaw stares at the Clever’s bracelets.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          In front of his eyes, the story
          began to unfold; what do you
          think the crow man did behold?

Killer Klaw stops the crow-creatures from attacking
Clever.

                       KILLER KLAW
          Around his wrist! Wait! Wait! Wait!
          The mortal possesses the stones,
          the power of Fate!

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The scarecrow astonished, total
          disbelief; he asked himself...

                       KILLER KLAW
          ... how could she be beat? You
          there, you there under the tree!
          You are the answer! You are the
          key! You are the riddle, the
          riddle, the rhyme! You are the
          answer to these dark, dark times!
          Tell me mortal...

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          ... was the question at hand.

                       KILLER KLAW
          Tell Killer Klaw. How did you come
          to this land?

                      CLEVER (V.O.)
          Clever quickly asked...

                       CLEVER
          ... Am I your slave?

Killer Klaw turns and looks towards MAGIC MOUNTAIN.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The scarecrow looked away.
                                                       57

                      KILLER KLAW
         No foolish mortal, we have a World
         to save! You are the reason, the
         reason, the rhyme. You are the man
         of poetic time. Get on your feet
         and come with me. We must journey
         afar to find the fantastic three.

INT. MIB’S CASTLE – CONTINUOUS

DEMONICA, three-eye, green skin, fire hair, is a hulking
devil-witch dressed in a black tattered dress flies on
her broom into the hole of the mountain.

                      CLEVER (V.O.)
         Back at the castle, the castle of
         doom; the witch arrived on her
         magic broom,

         Pointed hat, skin all green; eyes
         full of hate, black and mean,

         Garbed in black, nails long and
         sharp; nose like a buzzard with a
         dark, dark heart,

         She found her sister nailed to a
         wall; then she screamed down evil,
         evil hall.

                      DEMONICA
               (shouting)
         Who crucified my twin? I will
         atone! And where, oh where are the
         tablets of stone?

                      CLEVER (V.O.)
         The creatures they shuttered,
         they shivered and shaked; they told
         the witch who had came to this
         place,

         They began to hum and started to
         sing; they told the witch of
         witches of the deadly, deadly
         sting.
                                                       58

                       CREATURES
          It was Clever, Clever, Clever, and
          his house of light! He killed your
          sister on this dark, dark night!

Demonica screams.

SOUND EFFECT: DEMON WITCH SCREAM

Demonica gets on her broom and flies out the side of the
mountain.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          This resident of evil screamed in
          pain; then she took off on her
          evil train.

EXT. SKY - CONTINUOUS

Demonica flies inside the dark clouds, hurls electricity
out of her hand, and screams.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Up in the sky, electricity she
          hurled; an evil-driven frenzy
          screamed this bewitched bat-girl.

SOUND EFFECT: LIGHTNING AND THUNDER

Demonica summons her CLOUD DEMONS.

                       DEMONICA
          Awaken from your sleep my sweet
          lovely pearls! Arise my subjects
          to dark, dark world!

The clouds OPEN their eyes.

                       DEMONICA
          Find him my lovelies and ease my
          dark pain! Find Clever, Clever and
          bring down dark rain!

Demonica flies out of the clouds.
                                                         59

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The witch flew away, she flew away
          in pain; she could not stop, stop,
          reciting Clever’s name.

                       DEMONICA
          Clever, Clever, Clever, a human
          toy. Clever, Clever, Clever, you’re
          just a boy. Clever, Clever, Clever,
          driving me insane. Clever, Clever,
          Clever, let’s bring on the pain.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          As she flew away, this she
          endeavored...

                       DEMONICA
          ... I’ll get you human named Clever,
          Clever, Clever.

EXT. MAGIC MOUNTAIN– CONTINUOUS

MOUNTAIN MAN, guardian gatekeeper, is a giant rock
creature that protects the cave’s entrance.

Clever and Killer Klaw climb up the perilous mountain.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The scarecrow sensed her evil, evil
          anger; a dark, dark scream with
          punitive danger,

          So up Magic Mountain the two did
          claw; one human man and the other
          made of straw.

Clever and Killer Klaw reach the top and find the cave’s
entrance.

MOUNTAIN MAN -

emerges from the side of the mountain cliff and blocks
the entrance to the cave.
                                                       60

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          They came to a cave, and it did
          block; a mountain, mountain man,
          that was made of rock.

                       MOUNTAIN MAN
          If you want to go and pass within?
          Answer this question and how have
          you been? Tell me a riddle, a
          riddle of me. Who is the Hero of
          Antiquity?

CLEVER’S P.O.V. – LOOKING AT KILLER KLAW

                       KILLER KLAW
          You are the riddle, the riddle and
          the rhyme. Recite the answer to
          these dark, dark times.

CLOSEUP SHOT: CLEVER’S EYES TRANSFORMING INTO THE COSMOS.

                       CLEVER (O.S.)
          Am I the inescapable result of
          trilogies long ago? But what if I
          am me- A Hero of Antiquity.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Clever recited the poem out loud;
          and heavenly lightning came from
          the clouds.

SOUND EFFECT: LIGHTNING AND THUNDER

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Clever solved the puzzle, the
          riddle of the rock; and drove
          Mountain Man back into his flock.

Mountain Man’s body merges back into the rock.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The Mountain Man returned, returned
          to the rock; and Killer Klaw
          unlocked the secret, secret lock.
                                                          61

KILLER KLAW –

walks over to the cave’s entrance and places his hand on
the magic lock. His hand glows and transforms into a
swarm of straw.

The cave entrance opens, and Clever and Killer Klaw go
in.

INT. MAGIC MOUNTAIN CAVE – CONTINUOUS

Killer Klaw lights his hand on fire, and it illuminates
the dark cave.

Clever and Killer Klaw find the chamber that holds the
Sword of Sadness.

Clever looks up at the Sword of Sadness.

                        CLEVER (V.O.)
             Clever saw the power and Clever
             felt the cold.

                       KILLER KLAW
          The Sword of Sadness! Behold!
          Behold!

          You cannot possess the Sword of
          Sadness; until you recite the poem
          of madness,

          The Sword of Sadness, to you it
          will belong; the sword of swords
          has a mind of it’s own.

CLEVER’S -

eyes begin to glow with lightning.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Clever stared at the Sword of
          Sadness; his eyes became thunder,
          thunder and madness,

          He recited the poem, the Sword of
          Sadness; the cave did shake with
          power and badness.
                                                62

Clever recites the poem.

                       CLEVER
          The Sword of Sadness pierced my
          dark soul; it yelled and screamed
          an insane anger as clever Odysseus
          lamented to the sirens.

          The Sword of Sadness pierced my
          dark soul; its double-twin blades
          of deceit sealed the fate of mighty
          Achilles; a condemned path of
          destruction immortalized by man and
          treasured by the wet kiss of time,

          The Sword of Sadness’ mirrored
          reflection healed the ancient
          warrior’s wounds as its arrow
          shattered my heart; its cold shaft
          unsheathed to reveal terror to the
          core of my pure essence,

          The Sword of Sadness sliced the
          brilliant light of my dark soul;
          liquid pain flowed from the
          infliction and happiness did cry
          in despair; the Sword of Sadness
          did this, and to it I say no
          more.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The sword did shimmer and it took
          flight; thunder-energy, thunder-
          energy, bolts of light,

          It did glow in this dark cave
          place; then it vanished without a
          trace.

                       CLEVER
          Where did it go?

                       KILLER KLAW
          Into the night. It can only be
          summoned when there is a fight.
                                                       63

                      CLEVER
         Where did it go?

                      KILLER KLAW
         No one knows. Come with me mortal,
         the story unfolds.

EXT. SILVER MAGIC MIRROR FOUNTAIN – CONTINUOUS

TEN, transparent honeycomb silver skin metal-man, silver
blood flowing, holds a large silver curved axe.

Clever and Killer Klaw walk up to a silver fountain
cascading with silver/gold water and glowing dark light.
A face materializes in the water.

                      CLEVER (V.O.)
         The journey down the mountain was
         fierce and mean; the witch was
         after him, a fiendish fiend,

         At the bottom of Magic Mountain,
         what did appear? A silver, silver
         fountain, oh dear, oh dear,

         What do you think was at hand? But
         a mirror, mirror image of a frozen
         tin man,

         The water that was running was
         silver and gold; the tin man began
         to recite these odes.

                      TEN
         Who can you guess put me in this
         state? Liquid and light made of
         solid, solid hate,

         A periodic table you can’t find in
         this room; analyze the questions on
         the colorful cards of doom,

         Recite this message, recite this
         text; a canine friend will forever
         protect,
                      (MORE)
                                                          64

                       TEN (CONT’D)
          Add one value to the number nine;
          And a frozen friend in me you will
          find,

          With the power of ten around your
          neck; freedom from evil I do
          detect,

          Subtract one value from the number
          eleven; and the other, other friend
          you’ll find in heaven,

          Subtract one value before it’s too
          late; I am the map, the key to
          Faith,

          If you solve this riddle of all
          that jazz; I will be a showman of
          the glass, glass, class,

          If you solve this riddle of the
          colorful cards of doom; out of this
          table I will zoom.

KILLER KLAW’S –

eyes and hands began to glow with black light-energy.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Scarecrow man’s patience was
          growing thin.

                       KILLER KLAW
                (furious)
          Nonsense! Nonsense! Speaks the man
          of tin! I will destroy this
          ridiculous fountain! It will never
          trick us who toiled from the
          mountain!

Clever runs between Killer Klaw and the Magic Fountain.

Clever tries to stop Killer Klaw from destroying the
fountain.
                                                          65

                      CLEVER (V.O.)
           Clever begged the crow man.

                       CLEVER
          Leave it alone. If you destroy it
          now, I may never get home!

Clever and Killer Klaw sit at the stone round table and
try to solve the cards’ riddles.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          So upon the table lay ten colorful
          cards; five with text and the other
          with stars,

          So there they sat at the table of
          doom; dealt a decisive hand,
          pondering under the moon.

                       CLEVER
          This riddle is impossible to solve.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Clever went to the fountain to wash
          his face; and what did he see
          through the liquid water gate?

          At the stroke of midnight, like the
          galactic eyes of God; Clever found
          the answer up under the stars,

          Knowledge of the universe roamed
          his mind; transforming matter,
          essence and time,

          So faster than faster than the
          speed of light; could this be the
          answer? Would he be right?

                       CLEVER
          I know, I know why this riddle’s
          absurd; it was hidden, hidden and
          submerged.

Clever reaches into the cascading water.
                                                  66

                      CLEVER (V.O.)
         He reached in the water and what
         did he snag? A necklace, a pendant,
         no a dog, dog tag,

Clever puts the DOG TAG AMULET around his neck.

                      CLEVER (V.O.)
         He put the amulet around his neck;
         and from this moment on he recited
         these texts.

                      CLEVER
         With a dog tag amulet around my
         neck; power unleashed as I recite
         these text,

         With the power of knowledge and
         the power I command; virtues of
         life and melanin man,

         My dark dark sky a vision that
         looms; I am the master of the
         colorful cards of doom,

         With the Sword of Sadness in my
         hand; my presence is felt through-
         out this unnatural land,

         With the will to live and the power
         to die; take me through my dark
         dark sky.

                      CLEVER (V.O.)
         Out of the distance and out of the
         night; came a brilliant, brilliant
         glow and a burst of light,

Ten materializes in front of Clever.

                      CLEVER (V.O.)
         It hit the fountain with a full
         power max; appeared before them was
         a man with an axe,

         There he stood, this silver man; a
                      (MORE)
                                                       67

                       CLEVER (V.O.) (CONT’D)
          metallic mortal with an iron hand,

          A silver power with a silver tan;
          spit-polish with a salute so grand,

          With aluminium skin, a hero in a
          book; an immortal statue with an
          eternal look,

          Look up in the sky, it’s rain not
          sand; if you count to nine it’s a
          shinny tin man.

          So the tin man said...

                       TEN
          ... Let’s be on our way.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          He led us to a place where lions
          stay.

                       TEN
          To lead us through the land of the
          Dark Shadows of Hell; we need the
          giant cat who has a keen sense of
          smell.

EXT. LIVING LAND SHORELINE – CONTINUOUS

Clever, Killer Klaw, and Ten come to a huge rocky
shoreline.

TEN –

raises his axe and swings it down on the rock cliff.

SOUND EFFECT: THUMP

The GROUND CRACKS and moves beneath their feet.

Clever loses his balance and falls to the ground.

The rocky shoreline cliff drifts away with them.

Killer Klaw looks at Ten.
                                                       68

                       KILLER KLAW
          What type of sorcery is this?

                       CLEVER
          How is this possible?

                       TEN
          How do you think I arrived here,
          swam? It’s called Living Land, and
          it will take us back to the land
          of its birth- to the land of Roar.

EXT. LIVING LAND SHORELINE FLOATING – CONTINUOUS

Living Land drifts westward through the murky black sea.

A GOLDEN GLOWING NARWHALE illuminates the dark and jumps
out of the water.

Clever’s eyes marvel at the grace of the magnificent
giant’s presence.

Clever, Killer Klaw, and Ten watch the narwhale swim
away.

Clever’s lays down on the rocks, and goes to sleep.

Killer Klaw and Ten stand watch.

Hours later, Living Land drifts into thick fog and
collides with something.

Clever wakes up.

Killer Klaw and Ten walk up to Clever.

                       CLEVER
          Where are we?

EXT. NEW LAND SHORELINE – CONTINUOUS

They walk onto the shoreline.

A LARGE MAGICAL WALL –

materializes before them.
                                                         69

The wall stretches across the horizon and up into the
sky.

They see an ARCH-SHAPED OPENING along the wall.

A powerful ELECTRICAL CURRENT begins to flow through the
arch and disappear into the ground.

CLEVER –

picks up a piece of wood and throws it into the arch’s
opening.

The electricity disintegrates the wood.

                        CLEVER
           How do we get through it?

Killer Klaw powers up and flies into the air.

                        KILLER KLAW
           We’ll go over it!

                         TEN
                   (shouting)
           Wait!

EXT. SKY - CONTINUOUS

The wall grows higher.

KILLER KLAW –

increases his speed and the wall does the same.

EXT. NEW LAND SHORELINE – CONTINUOUS

Killer Klaw lands and drops to his knees.

                        KILLER KLAW
           This wall is cursed just like
           this world!

                        TEN
           It’s a magical wall, and we have to
           go through it.
                                                          70

TEN –

steps under the arch, spreads his arms out and touches
the edges of the wall.

The electricity comes out of the ground, passes through
the arch and through Ten’s body.

The wall disappears and the dark mountainous Land of Roar
appears in the horizon.

                       TEN
          Well, what are you two waiting for?

EXT. LAND OF ROAR – CONTINUOUS

Clever and Killer Klaw walk pass the arch.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          They went in a cave and what was
          inside? Glowing in the dark were
          two large eyes,

          A scary voice asked...

                       ROAR
          ... Has it gone, has it gone? A
          mouse, a mouse with two big horns!

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Out of the cave ran a mouse with a
          smile; the scarecrow replied...

                       KILLER KLAW
          ... This lion’s like a child.
                                                         71

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The tin man said...

                       TEN
          ... We need your help.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The lion roared, roared...

                       ROAR
          ... find her yourself!

                       TEN
          So you know why we’re here? Before
          it’s too late, help us cowardly
          lion find the woman named Faith.

Roar walks over to Clever.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          He came out the shadows, this giant
          beast; he looked at Clever like he
          was a feast,

          He walked up to him and Clever got
          scared; he held out his paw and
          said...

                       ROAR
          ... Hello there! Do me a favor and
          keep a look out. Warn me when you
          see that scary, scary mouse.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Everyone laughed and told some
          jokes; Clever exclaimed...

                       CLEVER
          ... He’s actually nice to folks.

          Evil is amidst around us.

The rain soaks into the ground and the SEED PODS start to

          Hurry! Let’s cross the bridge.

EXT. OLD VINE BRIDGE - CONTINUOUS

Roar leads them to an old giant vine bridge that crosses
a mountainous ridge. Sharp stone spikes are at the
bottom.

They began crossing the bridge, and they reach the
middle. The vines start to move and unloosen themselves
from the cliff.

The bridge collapses and Clever is the first to fall.

                        CLEVER

          Something tried to drown me!

her body.

                       CLEVER

          the Dark Shadows of Hell, the lion
          asked...

WINGED-HORNED-CREATURES, sit in the forest trees.

Roar stops abruptly and flinches.

                       ROAR
                (growling)
          ... Wait! What is that smell?

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Clever lit a match and what did
          they see? A thousand winged-
          creatures hanging from a tree.

Killer Klaw flies in the air.

                       KILLER KLAW
          I summon the power of the Scarecrow
          Man!

                       CLEVER (V.O.)

          power of the crow.
                                                        77

Thousands of black crows swoop down from the sky and
attack the wing-horn creatures.

         The lion roared.

                      ROAR
               (roar)
         You are my foe!

Roar’s sonic roar vaporizes hundreds of the wing-horn
creatures.

                      CLEVER (V.O.)
         They fought them off with the force
         of four; and the tin man axed one
         to the floor!

         The bloody battle was over, they
         fought and won; the lion jumped up
         and said...

                      ROAR
         ... That was fun!

                      TEN

         through wicked gate; tin man
         whispered...

                      TEN
               (whispering)
         ... Hurry before it’s too late.

                       TEN
          The power to stop her is in this
          room.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          They all felt the presence of an
          evil, evil goon.

                       TEN
          We must move the wall and enter
          the gate. Hurry now before it’s too
          late!

Ten strikes the wall with his axe and a hole opens up.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          He chopped through the wall and
          peered at the gate.

Ten continues to break down the wall.

They walk up to the MONSTROUS GATE.

He turns the axe, and the gate opens.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          He looked in the hole and what
          amazed me; the tin man used his
          axe as a key,

          With the axe of silver, he
          unlocked the gate.

                       TEN
          Hurry, hurry, hurry before it’s
          too late!
                                                          79

INT. GIGANTIC CAVERN -CONTINUOUS

Clever, Killer Klaw, Ten, and Roar enter the cavern and
see a GOLDEN GLASS CASKET sitting in center. Ten leads
them over to the casket.

FAITH, goddess with black dreads, wears a long dress of
pure golden light, is asleep inside.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          In the Golden Glass Casket, there
          she lumbered; a beautiful black
          woman that slumbered and slumbered,

          Hair of gold, lips embedded
          diamonds; ruby jewel nails and eyes
          of almond.
                       CLEVER
          How do we open it and save this
          land?

                       KILLER KLAW
          Clever, Clever, use the bracelets
          of sand.

Clever holds his arms out over the casket.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Clever held the bracelets, the
          bracelets of stone; he repeated, he
          repeated...

                       CLEVER
          ... There’s no place like home.
          This world is out of hope. This
          world is out of faith, release,
          release the goddess without hate!

A GOLDEN RAINBOW glows around Clever and flows into his
chest.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Somewhere, somewhere, the belief
          did flow; Clever, Clever baptized
          in a golden rainbow,

The casket’s golden glass disappears.
                                                          80

Faith awakens and floats into the air.

BOOTS OF LIGHT materializes on Clever’s feet.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The glass disappeared and Faith
          took flight; she endowed Clever,
          Clever with Boots of Light.

Faith vanishes.

Demonica appears in a cloud of black smoke.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The witch appeared this evil twin;
          the lion flinched from the cruel
          stench of sin,

 Roar cringed from Demonica’s stench.

          She stared in hate and this she
          endeavored; She shouted out his name!”

                       DEMONICA
          Clever, Clever, Clever!

Killer Klaw summons his crow-creatures.

                       KILLER KLAW
          With the power of knowledge and the
          power I command, I summon the power
          of the scarecrow man!

The crow-creatures attack Demonica.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The crow man attacked with his
          crow-matic crows...

Demonica raises her hands, and the crows burn up in mid
air.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          ... The witch waved her hand and
          knocked them to the floor.
                                                       81

Demonica gets on her broom and flies around in the
cavern.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          She jumped on her broom and flew in
          the air; all we could see was her
          deadly stare.

                       DEMONICA
          I’ve been waiting for you to spring
          my trap! Three fools, fools and one
          human sap!

The witch attacks Clever, Killer Klaw, Ten and Roar. She
shoots energy blasts from her hand.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          She used black magic and hurled it
          as she zoomed.

Ten throws his Colorful Cards of Doom in front. The cards
morph into a shield and block the witch’s deadly attack.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The Tin Man shielded us with the
          Colorful Cards of Doom.

Mighty Roar leaps on the rocks, springs in the air.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The lion leaped from rock to rock;
          he sprang in the air like a wind up
          clock!

Roar slashes Demonica.

Demonic screams and falls to the ground.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          He slashed at the witch, we could
          hear her scream; he knocked her
          off her mean machine.

          She hit the ground...

                       DEMONICA
          ... My neck, my Neck!
                                                         82

Demonica conjures up a magic spell.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Then she called forth a deadly hex.

                       DEMONICA
          With the eyes of demons! From the
          pits that smell, arise demon apes
          from the pits of hell!

The cavern’s ceiling cracks open and the ground rises up
through the castle.

Clever, Roar, Ten, and Killer Klaw fall to the ground.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The castle wall’s cracked and the
          floor did crumble; from under our
          feet a grumble, grumble.

The castle roof explodes and the walls collapse.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The castle roof exploded and
          expelled; down from below came the
          apes of hell.

EXT. CASTLE DUNGEON RUINS - CONTINUOUS

Millions of DEMON APES rise out of the ground.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Trillions, millions, came to her
          side; the four looked around just
          petrified.

Demonica summons her most powerful demon.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The witch she chanted...

                       DEMONICA
          ... To aid my flame, I call to Dark
          World the Wizard of Pain!

The WIZARD OF PAIN, bald-headed dark fire-ghoul, rises
out of the ground.
                                                       83

                       WIZARD OF PAIN
          Who summons the great and powerful Oz?

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Ten yelled to Clever!

                       TEN
          Don’t stand there son! We’ll try to
          hold them off! Run, run, run!

Clever takes off running.

Roar runs towards the Wizard of Pain.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The Mighty Lion Roared!

                       ROAR
          Die, die, foe!

The Wizard of Pain slams one punch into Roar’s side.

Roar falls to the ground and dies.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Pain hit him hard with one death
          blow!

Killer Klaw morphs into a swarm of straw and flies
towards Demonica.
                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Killer Klaw flung his razors of
          straw.

Demonica summons the golden nail.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The witch repeated with...”

                       DEMONICA
          The Nail of Law!

The golden nail pierces Killer Klaw’s chest. Killer Klaw
morphs back into a golden scarecrow and drops out of the
air.
                                                          84

Ten throws his axe at the demon apes. The apes create a
wall of flames to deflect the axe.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The man made of tin a last defense;
          he hurled his mighty axe and he was
          tense,

          Into the dense, his majestic axe
          hailed; they deflected his chop,
          scrap metal for sale.

The demon apes over power Ten with their massive numbers
and beat him into pieces.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The apes took turn slamming their
          hands; when they all scattered
          back, a battered tin man.

Clever is surrounded by the Demonica and her demons.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Clever looked around, surrounded by
          goons; his three friends down and
          him with no room.

Demonica slaps Clever to the ground.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The Witch slapped him down and thus
          began to punch; made the clever
          man throw up his lunch.

The Wizard of Pain shoots Clever with an energy blast.

Clever’s body is propelled fifty feet backwards.

EXT. PETRIFIED TREE - CONTINUOUS

Clever lands on a sharp tree stump. It punctures through
his abdomen. Clever screams.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The Wizard of Pain blasted his
          heart. Clever hit a tree almost
          tore him apart.
                                                       85

Clever looks to the ground. Blood drips from his side and
life slowly creeps from his body.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Bruised and battered, battered and
          bruised, Clever looked up...

                       CLEVER
          ... How did we lose?

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          His body all bloodied, beaten and
          battered; he asked himself...

                       CLEVER
          ... Why does it matter?

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          He could still hear the witch, and
           her evil band...

                       WIZARD OF PAIN
          ... The killing time is ripe and
          near at hand!

                       DEMONICA
          You’re in a bind, an evil tether.
          You’re going to die Clever, Clever.

          Relinquish the bracelets and the
          Boots of Light, and I promise, I
          promise to spare your life.

                       CLEVER
          This world has hope. This world has
          faith. We have released the
          Goddess, the Goddess without hate.

Clever closes his eyes.

                      CLEVER (V.O.)
          His eyelids closed, now and
          forever,

Clever hears Faith’s voice.
                                                         86

                      CLEVER (V.O.)
          ... that’s when a voice said...

Faith appears and hovers above him.

                       FAITH
          ... Clever, Clever, Clever.

Clever opens his eyes.

                      CLEVER (V.O.)
          He heard a voice down in his heart,

                       FAITH (O.S.)
          There’s nothing you can’t finish,
          That you didn’t start,

                      CLEVER (V.O.)
          With love and justice in his heart,
          Clever found the faith to do his
          part.

Clever closes his eyes and tears flow down his cheeks.

                      CLEVER (V.O.)
          So he closed his eyes and said a
          silent prayer...

                       CLEVER
          With the power of love and the
          power of peace, my path forever
          changed by the Song of Weep,

          Eternal is my Savoir and the power
          up high, my soul forever bound to
          my dark, dark sky.

Clever’s blood flows on the ground, his eyes slowly
close, and Clever’s body goes limp.

Clever’s stone bracelets began to glow.

Clever’s body transforms into a DARK THICK MIST and rises
into the air.
                                                         87

                      CLEVER (V.O.)
          ... His soul transcended and rose to
          the air.

EXT. DARK SKY - CONTINUOUS

A glowing black mystical vortex chamber swirls around the
dark mist. His new body materializes around it.

Clever opens his eyes.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Clever finally understood the
          riddles of time; he began to
          recite his poetic rhymes.

Clever summons the Boots of Light.

                       CLEVER
          To stop this evil and make things
          right, I energize my feet with the
          Boots of Light!

The Boots of Light reappear on his feet.

Clever summons his BLACK SOUL COAT.

                       CLEVER
          With the power of knowledge and the
          power I command, I summon the power
          of the scarecrow man!

Killer Klaw’s body transforms into a DARK MIST, rises
into the air and swirls around Clever. The dark mist
transforms into a black body suit and a long black coat.

A small golden Dog Tag Amulet materializes around
Clever’s neck, and the stone bracelets reappear around
his wrist.

Electricity arcs between Clever’s amulet and the stone
bracelets.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          The crow man’s soul a mysterious
          sight; battle armor ready to even
                       (MORE)
                                                          88

                       CLEVER (V.O.) (CONT’D)
          the fight,

          Killer Klaw shape-shifted as it did
          float; around Clever’s body in a
          dark black coat.

                       CLEVER
          Dark, dark soul and dark, dark sky;
          I summon the power, the power to
          fly!

Clever’s COAT transforms around him into a BLACK MYSTICAL
COSMIC TORNADO.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          His super coat a dark, dark swirl;
          lifted Clever, Clever, Clever above
          the world,

          There he stood way up high; this
          dark, dark man in a dark, dark sky.

Clever raises his hands and summons the Sword of Sadness.

                       CLEVER
          With the power of love to end this
          madness, I call upon the sword, the
          Sword of Sadness!

The Sword of Sadness materializes above Clever and
releases arcing bolts of lightning.

                       CLEVER
                (voice resonating
                throughout the uni-
                verse)
          Behold the Sword of Sadness!

The sword changes into lightning and teleports to
Clever’s hands. Clever holds both of his hands together
above his head.

Lightning strikes Clever’s bracelets and the Sword of
Sadness materializes in his hand.
Clever raises his sword, and a majestic rainbow arcs high
above him.
                                                          89

The Sword of Sadness releases arcs of lightning
throughout the sky.

                         CLEVER (V.O.)
          So he raised his sword and a
          rainbow appeared; lightning and
          thunder from the stratosphere,

          Resonating Power, vortex chamber;
          Blades of Badness and redemptive
          danger,

          An unspoken ode from Delilah’s
          avenger; Clever became God’s Poetic
          Dark Defender.

EXT. PETRIFIED TREE - CONTINUOUS

The chaotic light arcs around the demons, and they open
their mouths to expose their large fangs.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Cosmic energy power from the eyes
          of this man; lightning and thunder
          throughout the land,

          The Sword of Sadness appeared in
          the night; a dark holy rapier of
          chaotic light,

          The Sword of Sadness did appear;
          the demons panicked and they did
          fear.

                       CLEVER
          I wield the sword, the sword of
          anger! It has the power of dark
          dark danger!

Clever points his sword at the demons.

                       CLEVER
          With the Sword of Sadness in my
          hand, banish these demons from this
          dark, dark land!
                                                        90

The Sword of Sadness’ chaotic lightning vaporizes the
demons.

The universe and cosmos appears.

                       CLEVER
          With the power of dark and the
          power of love; I call forth the
          power from high up above.

          With The Sword of Sadness in my
          hand; with the power of God at my
          command,

          I command the heavens and faith
          without sin; destroy, destroy this
          diabolical twin.

Clever soul-coat creates a black vortex, and he flies
inside it.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Faster than faster than the speed
          of smite; out of the heavens came
          the Boots of Light.

EXT. DEMONICA’S CASTLE RUINS - CONTINUOUS

The vortex opens up.

Clever flies out the vortex, swoops down and hovers over
Demonica.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Out of the vortex, Clever did zoom;
          over the witch, he did loom.

Demonica tries to run out of the tornado’s vortex.

The tornado’s inner vortex spins so fast that it forms an
impenetrable wall of air.

Clever raises his sword.

CLEVER’S P.O.V. – LOOKING AT DEMONICA

Demonica TRANSFORMS into the image of Faith.
                                                          91

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          He heard the witch and this she
          endeavored...

                       DEMONICA
                (frightened)
          Mercy on me Clever, Clever!

Clever hesitates.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          He looked at the heavens and peered
          in her eyes; he saw the face of
          truth and the long look of lies.

          He finally got the chance to do his
          part...

Lightning flows through Clever’s sword.

                       CLEVER
                (in anger)
          Vengeance is mine!

Clever drives his sword deep into the Demonica’s chest.

The sword electrocutes Demonica and lightning erupts from
her body.

Demonica screams.

Clever pulls his sword out of Demonica’s chest.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          ... As he pulled the Sword of
          Sadness out of the dying witch’s
          heart,

Demonica falls to the ground dead.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          When the dust had cleared and the
          smoke was gone; Clever found
          himself all alone,

          The last one standing his friends
          in his soul; Clever to himself...
                                                     92




EXT. SKY - CONTINUOUS

Faith appears in the night sky.

                       CLEVER
          ... The light of gold! I haven’t
          clue and I’m all alone. I’m not
          really sure how to get back home.

                       FAITH
          Clever, you always had the
          power to go home. You just had to
          believe in the power of your own.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Clever asked Faith...

                       CLEVER
          ... Will I see you again?

                       FAITH
          Not in the world of the promised
          land.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Faith wished him luck as she flew
          from here; tears from her eyes as
          she disappeared,

A golden tear drop falls from Faith’s eye.

A GOLDEN SUN rises in the horizon and destroys the
darkness.

                        CLEVER (V.O.)
          Her tears hit the pavement with a
          brilliant light; the land went from
          darkness to golden yellow white.

Clever looks around and smiles.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          Clever gazed upon an amazing sight,
          a world full of faith and beautiful
          sunlight.
                                                          93

Killer Klaw, Ten, and Roar’s bodies transform back into
their human form and disappear.

                      CLEVER (V.O.)
          It inspired his heart with a
          wonderful desire; the answer to
          home Faith truly inspired.

Clever raises his sword.

                       CLEVER (V.O.)
          So he raised his sword and a
          Rainbow appeared; lightning and
          thunder from the stratosphere,

          He recited a poem in a rhythmic
          text; and Clever disappeared
          through a black vortex, somewhere
          over the rainbow.
