the room to figure out where he is. King eyes are filled
with rage. He takes a moment to answer Victor.
                                                            
                       KING
      (lying still tied
       up)
I'm wondering why I'm here.. I
don't see the point of tying me
down if I'm doing this willingly..
So what I'm asking is... Was i

everything in between...
      (walking towards
       the weapons)
This sword has King on it....Is

reflection..

sees a one piece suit that looks like it fits...He tries it
on and it's just the right size. King smiles.

                       PENNY

Drake loads all his weapons getting ready to go search for
King. Primeus walks up and stands at his door.
                                                            
                       VICTOR
      (standing at door)
I see you know what your doing..We
can't draw attention to ourselves.
Make it quiet and clean..Leave
nothing behind..
                                                            
Drake looks at Primeus and grins.
                                                            
                       DRAKE
      (sitting down)
You want King back so I'm going to
get him.
      (standing up)
That's what you are paying me
for...
                                                            
They both walk out of the room and down the hall
                                                            
TO THE HALLWAY LEADING TO THE LOBBY:
                                                            
                       VICTOR
      (WALKING NEXT TO
       DRAKE)
We planted a tracking device on
him before he got away... If he
touches it, the device gives him
about ten seconds before it
explodes.
                                                            
                       DRAKE
      (WALKING NEXT TO
       VICTOR)
I hope to track him before that
happens.. I do this alone..
                                                            
                       DRAKE
Remember do this quietly..
                                                            

18.

Drake looks back at Victor and nods and walks out the door
of the building. There are men in the background cleaning up
the mess left by King's escape.
                                                            
 
EXT. DARK ALLEY - NIGHT
                                                            
After King escapes from Victor and his men he runs across
the street down a few blocks to a alleyway. King then falls
to the ground in pain. His body is trying to adapt to his
body changing. King's bones crack and his muscles are
pulling.
                                                            
                       KING
      (laying on the
       ground)
oh...God! What is going on with
me!?
                                                            
A man in the shadows looks at King and tries to help.
                                                            
                       WAGNER
      (Standing over
       King)
Hey! What's the matter? Are you
all right?
                                                            
                       KING
Get away i'm being followed!
                                                            
                       WAGNER
      (helping up King)
By who?!
                                                            
                       KING
      (standing up)
That's a long story.. One that
that i don't even know..
                                                            
It begins to rain.
                                                            
                       WAGNER
Damn.. Raining again. I guess you
can come get out of the rain. You
can hide out here..Maybe they lost
you..
                                                            

19.

ON TOP OF A BUILDING:
                                                            
Drake looks through his infrared red glasses for his search
for King. He scans back and forth looking for him. He
notices something different about someone while scanning. He
waits.
                                                            
BACK TO THE ALLEY:
                                                            
King and Wagner are waiting the storm out under Wagner's
shelter. Wagner notices something on King.
                                                            
                       WAGNER
Wait.. What is that on your
collar? it looks strange.
                                                            
                       KING
      (reaching for the
       object)
What do you mean?
      (holding it)
What the hell...
                                                            
The object starts to light up and makes a high pitch noise.
                                                            
                       KING
      (holding the
       object)
Oh...My... God..RUN!
                                                            
King throws the object in a dumpster and grabs Wagner and
they both run to dodge the explosion. King shields him from
the fire.
                                                            
BACK TO THE TOP OF THE BUILDING:
                                                            
Drake sees the explosion from the roof and races to King's
location. Drake jumps from building to building until he
reaches ground level.He runs across the street to the alley
and sees King on the ground and Wagner next to him. The rain
is still pouring.
                                                            
BACK TO THE ALLEY:
                                                            

20.

Drake stands and looks at King for a few moments. He takes
out a scanner and to scan King. After scanning him, Drake's
suit makes him as powerful as King.
                                                            
Drake walks up to King lying on the floor. Drake picks him
up and throws him to the wall. Drake Kicks King in the
stomach..King moments later awakes up. King opens his eyes
and sees Drake standing 5 feet away. King expresses pain.
Just seconds later King lounges at Drake and tackles him to
the ground. Drake gets up and backs up from the alley way.
King runs up and uppercuts Drake and launches him on the top
of a moving semi-trailer truck. Wagner looks on.
                                                            
 
EXT. ON TOP OF A SEMI TRAILER TRUCK - NIGHT
                                                            
King runs after the truck. He is chasing after Drake who
fell on top of a semi trailer truck that is driving on a
main street.
                                                            
King gets close to the truck and then leaps on top of it.
King then catches his balance then gets in a ready stance.
Drake then gets up taking out a pistol. Drake takes two
shots at King and he dodges the bullets.
                                                            
King brings out his sword and quickly charges Drake. Drake
blocks King's sword with his own. Drake kicks King in the
face and he goes flying to the other end of the semi
trailer. The driver looks up noticing that something is
going on. The truck slows down.. King sees another truck
driving on the side going faster. King runs and pushes Drake
to top of the other truck. Drake lands on the other truck
and is moving away from King. Drake shows anger...
                                                            
                       DRAKE
      (quiet tone)
Damn.....
                                                            
King looks on and he seems to be in pain. He leaps off of
the truck and he hides around the corner...
                                                            
                       KING
      (holding his ribs)
Oh... what a night...but now what?

Vice grabs a plate of food kisses his kids and his wife

Vice. I know this is hard and you

Vice walks away from Edward then stops and turns around. He
walks up to Edward and puts his hand on his shoulder.
                                                            
                       VICE
You are my number one guy.. We

King walks down the streets of the city and crosses in front
of Fortress City Bank. The bank is being held up. Fortress
City Police are outside of the building. News reporters are
all around.
                                                            

31.

                       KING
      (Talking softly to
       himself)
What's going on??
                                                            
King quickly hides behind the building were nobody can see
him. He then climbs up to the rooftop to get a view. He can
see the inside of the bank through the glass at the top of
the building.
                                                            
INSIDE THE BANK:
                                                            
One of the bank robbers gets upset and grabs a woman and
points his gun at her head.
                                                            
                       BANK ROBBER
I'll kill her if you people don't
get down and stay down! I swear
i'll do it!
                                                            
To get the hostages attention two other robbers shoot their
guns in the air busting the glass at the top of the roof.
                                                            
ON THE BANK ROOFTOP:
                                                            
King dodges the bullets and glass when the robbers shoot the
air.
                                                            
                       KING
      (Talking softly to
       himself)
They don't know I'm here... I have
to stop this.
                                                            
After a short pause King leaps down.
                                                            
INSIDE THE BANK:
                                                            
King lands in between the two robbers. He knocks both of
them out. The robber holding the girl turns and sees King.
                                                            
                       BANK ROBBER
Man where the hell you come from?!
                                                            
                       EMILY
Please let me go!
                                                            

32.

                       BANK ROBBER
Shut up!
                                                            
                       KING
Nobody has to get hurt..
                                                            
                       BANK ROBBER
      (holding the gun
       to her head)
My men are hurt..Because of you!
Who the hell are you? You know
what she's dead!
                                                            
                       KING
      (leaping)
NOOOO!
                                                            
(in slow motion) While the robber was shooting, King runs
and leaps to grab the bullet before it hits the girl's head.
King flips back up and knocks the robber out with one blow.
Emily screams.
                                                            
                       EMILY
Oh my God oh my God! You saved our
lives... Who are you?
                                                            
King grabs his stomach falling on his knees.
                                                            
                       EMILY
OH my are you okay?
                                                            
                       KING
I'm fine...Are you okay?
                                                            
                       EMILY
i'm okay...Will you be there to
save us again?
                                                            
                       KING
I hope i don't have to.. take
care.
                                                            
King jumps out of the top of the building...
                                                            
                       EMILY
I don't even know his name....

A police officer walks up to Emily to ask what happened in
the bank.
                                                            
                       LOCKHEART

                       LOCKHEART

Is that okay?
                                                            
                       EMILY
Thanks... okay.. The robbers
stormed in the bank an waited for
a few seconds and started shooting
in the air.. After a while they
told us to get down. They told a
few of us to keep standing and
they told us to open the vault.. I
stalled them for a bit..Then he
got upset and started to shoot
more..Then someone saved us! He
looked different, like a cat in
the face or Lion... I know it
sounds crazy, but that's how it
happened..
                                                            
                       LOCKHEART
So are you telling me there's
someone out there doing our job
for us?
                                                            
                       EMILY
      (smiling)
He saved our lives... We could of

35.

                       EMILY
Well thanks i guess..
                                                            
                       LOCKHEART
We are going to take you down to
the station for more questioning..
We have to get a better ID of the
man that saved you.
                                                            
Lockheart walks Emily to the police car and the car pulls
away from the scene.

                       EMILY
      (talking to the
       cat)
Who was that.... huh buddy? How

      (talking to
       Officer Rosen)
Is this all we have to go on? A
picture of a circus freak?
                                                            
Lockheart slams the picture on the desk.
                                                            
                       OFFICER ROSEN
Maybe it's true... Maybe he's a
mysterious figure that lurks in
the shadows and saves the day.
                                                            
                       LOCKHEART
except.. It's daylight. Cameras
everywhere. And we have

                       OFFICER ROSEN
The Media..
                                                            
Lockheart glances at the picture one more time..

let it go to waste. I choose to
use it.
                                                            
                       WAGNER
You saved lives today. Lots of
lives.
                                                            
                       KING

       over his head)
I'm sorry for yelling.. I feel

feeling pain inside.

Someone appears out of the shadows and speaks.
                                                            
                       SAGE
So your King... I've been waiting
for this all night.. Where you

                       KING
You've been waiting to die? How

Oh stop all the macho talk... I
was told you will be hard to
kill.. But in this case I'm not
here to kill you.. So. you are
lucky but i will hurt you, that's
what i do..
                                                            
                       KING
      (shaking his head)
You have no idea...
                                                            
                       SAGE
Oh a man a few words..

                       KING
I don't know who you are and a
don't care to.. All I know is you
are just another trophy to go up
on my wall..
                                                            
King pulls out his sword and walks forward.
                                                            
                       KING
Come on!
                                                            
                       SAGE

Sage powers his arms and pulls out his sword. The energy of
his arms flows through his sword. King runs and starts
shooting. Sage ducks behind a steel crate.
                                                            

57.

                       SAGE
      (under his breathe)
Okay this is going to be harder
than i thought...
                                                            
Sage takes out two handguns and returns fire. King hides
behind an old broken down bus. They both return fire back
and forth. Sage inches closer to the bus. Sage uses his
energy from his arms to propel himself on top of the bus.
King realizes that he's on the roof of the bus. King backs
up and rams the bus causing Sage to fall through a whole
into the bus. Sage pulls out his guns, firing at will. King
backs up even further and runs at full speed and colliding
into and threw the bus, ripping it apart.
                                                            
King gets up first intensely staring at Sage on the ground.
King him up and holds him up by the neck. Sage moans in
pain.
                                                            
                       KING
Who are you!?
                                                            
                       SAGE
Who i am doesn't make any
difference! You are a wanted man
or should i say freak!
                                                            
                       KING
But yet i'm the freak holding you
up and i can snap your neck in
two!
                                                            
                       SAGE
These people don't care if i die!
All they care about is you being
CAUGHT!
                                                            
Sage charges his arms and grabs a hold of King sending the
energy through King's body.King falls to the ground and Sage
continues to send charges through his body.
                                                            
                       SAGE
You see King do not deny your fate
freak! You are coming with me!
                                                            

58.

Sage powers down and takes a cigar and lights it. Then he
brings out a needle with a strong compound inside.
                                                            
                       SAGE
I hope you can comprehend what i'm
going to tell you.. So I'll say
this in a way so you can
understand.. You see the needle
I'm going to inject you with? This
is a very powerful substance and
you will be out for a very long
time.. You hear me freak?
                                                            
Sage walks slowly up to King with needle in hand. King looks
down then suddenly his turn yellow. King thinks to himself.
                                                            
                       KING (inter dialog)
      (thinking to
       himself)
Get up King! Get up! Stop PAIN!!
                                                            
A few momments go by and King looks suprised.
                                                            
                       KING (inter dialog)
OH my God... The pain has
stopped..
                                                            
King looks up clinches his fist and quickly rams into Sage
knocking him clear across the junkyard into a huge puddle of
muddy water. King then finds him and takes his sword and gun
and some ammo. King then takes a deep breath and walks away.

Lockheart puts his head gently on the window. He suddenly
hears a noise from outside. Lockheart grabs a gun then loads
it and goes to the window and opens it. Lockheart steps out

                       LOCKHEART
What way?
                                                            
King suddenly moves forward. Lockheart backs up and he graps
for his gun.
                                                            
                       KING
Wait! I'm innocent.. There are
some people in this city that will
stop at nothing to get what they
want.
                                                            
Lockheart puts his gun down.
                                                            

71.

                       LOCKHEART
What are you? I saw you outside of
the window earlier. You jumped
from one rooftop to another... How
did you find me?
                                                            
                       KING
I don't know who or what I am. I
guess i use to be human.
                                                            
                       LOCKHEART
Human?
                                                            
                       KING
Yes human.. Something happened to
me and I have no memories of who I
really am.

between a man named Vice...
                                                            
                       LOCKHEART
      (interupting)
Pierce! You saw Vice Pierce at the
old warehouse?
                                                            
                       KING
Who is he?
                                                            
                       LOCKHEART
He's the head of a successful
business here in Fortress City.
                                                            

72.

                       KING
I must bring him down! I will
bring him down!
                                                            
                       LOCKHEART
Wait! You need proof.. You have
any conclusive evidence that can
proven in a court of law?
                                                            
                       KING
No. but you do. There's a suspect
in your custody.. The man from the
attemped bank robbery.
                                                            
                       LOCKHEART
It's starting to make a little
since now.. You broke up that
robbery earlier today didn't you?
                                                            
                       KING
I did a little more than that..
But yes I broke up the robbery..
                                                            
                       LOCKHEART
So are you some sort of vigilante?
                                                            
                       KING
I'm looking for justice..
                                                            
                       LOCKHEART
Well.. I don't know if I can trust
you.
                                                            
                       KING
In this city it seems like I'm one
of the few you can trust.
                                                            
Lockheart pauses for a momment to think.
                                                            
                       LOCKHEART
First thing in the morning I will
question our suspect that we have
from the bank bust. I will try to
get anything that we need out of
him.
                                                            

73.

                       KING
I will get more info on what Vice
is doing tomorrow night.
                                                            
As King is about to jump to the next building Lockheart
stops him.
                                                            
                       LOCKHEART
You be careful. You are my only
lead.
                                                            
                       KING
I'm almost done with being
careful.. It's time people pay for
their crimes..
                                                            
                       LOCKHEART
How do I contact you?
                                                            
                       KING
Meet me outside of warehouse
before 10 o'clock. Make sure you
are out of range so they can't
spot us.
                                                            
Lockheart nods. King jumps to the next building and
disappears in the shadows. Lockheart turns and steps back
inside.

Oh.. hmm i've noticed something..
                                                            
                       KING
What?
                                                            

76.

                       EMILY
You don't have any morning
breath..
                                                            
                       KING
Oh... Too bad I can't say the same
for you..
                                                            
                       EMILY
      (hitting King
       playfully)
Shut up! Fine I'll go brush my
teeth silly.. HAHA!
                                                            
Emily covers herself with the sheet and goes into the
bathroom to brush her teeth. She finshes and jumps back in
the bed.
                                                            
                       EMILY
Ahhh... Nice in fresh.
                                                            
                       KING
That's better.. Now where were we?
                                                            
They continue to kiss.

myself.. This baby needs me.
                                                            
                       ANGIE
Yeah.. You aren't alone. Everyone
in your life will be there for
you.
                                                            
                       PENNY
I just don't understand where he
could of gone.. You know it's my
fault.. We had a fight before he
left. It was our first.
                                                            
                       ANGIE
Please don't blame yourself. His
disappearance is not your fault!
                                                            
                       PENNY
How do you know?
                                                            
                       ANGIE
I just know.. You should think
that way too.
                                                            
Angie leans over and hugs Penny.

INT. PRIMEUS'S OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
Primeus sits in his office waiting for a meeting with Mayor
Lang. The office phone rings.
                                                            
                       VICTOR
      (on the phone)
Is the mayor here yet?
                                                            
                       ASSISTANT

Yes sir he's here. Send him in?
                                                            
                       VICTOR

Yes. Send him in.
                                                            
Mayor Lang walks in the office door. They both shake hands
and greet each other.
                                                            
                       VICTOR
Hello mayor Lang. How was your
trip back to Fortress City?
                                                            
                       JOHN
It was great.. I had a few
meetings and a few new ideas..
First though I need to talk to you
about putting Fortress City on the
map. I would like to congratulate
you on your research you and your
team has done. You have changed
modern medicine as we know it.
                                                            
                       VICTOR
Thank you..Sometimes I can't
believe what we've done. Millions
and millions of people will be
cured of these diseases.. For the
next few days we have a lot of
interviews and press to get
through.
                                                            

79.

                       JOHN
Well... I'm glad you're on our
side.
                                                            
Victor looks on with a blank stare as John takes off his
coat.
                                                            
                       VICTOR
Thank you mayor.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Me and a few other law makers have
a new bold idea that I want to run
by you this morning.
                                                            
                       VICTOR
Hmmm okay this sounds interesting.
                                                            
                       JOHN
You are close to some members of
the human council correct?
                                                            
                       VICTOR
Correct.
                                                            
                       JOHN
You now the human council works?
                                                            
                       VICTOR
I'm familiar with it.. They deal
with human rights and the hybrid
council deals with their rights as
well.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Yes. They work together to keep to
form a common goal, some sorta
peace. What if there was a third
council?
                                                            
                       VICTOR
A third council?
                                                            
                       JOHN
A third council to help keep the
two sides in check. I've been in
some meetings and i witnessed some
            (MORE)

                       JOHN (cont'd)
intense debates.
                                                            
                       VICTOR
Interesting... very very
interesting..
                                                            
                       JOHN
So you on board?
                                                            
                       VICTOR
I will do everything in my power
to make this work.. As far as i'm
concerned it's a done deal.
                                                            
John gets up from the chair to shake hands with Victor.
                                                            
                       JOHN
Thanks Victor.. I look forward to
working with you in the political
field.
                                                            
                       VICTOR
Hmmm Never thought I'd be into
politics but I'm eager to give it
a shot.
                                                            
 
INT. POLICE STATION (INTERROGATION ROOM) - DAY
                                                            
A man from the bank bust sits in a chair next to a table in
the interrogation room. His wrists and ankles are cuffed. He
shaked nervously. Seconds later Officer Rosen and Officer
Lockheart walk in the door. Lockheart slams papers on the
table and stares at the man in the chair.
                                                            
                       LOCKHEART
So.. there's no doubt you are
you're guilty. so now that's out
of the way who are you working
for?
                                                            
The bank robber just stares with a half smile.
                                                            

81.

                       OFFICER ROSEN
We don't have time for this..
Don't think for one second someone
will come through that door and
save you..
                                                            
Lockheart gets closer to the man's face.
                                                            
                       LOCKHEART
I had a nice chat with the man
responsible for putting you in
here. I could bring him in here
and lock the door.
                                                            
                       OFFICER ROSEN
And we can turn off all the
lights.. It will just be you and
him.
                                                            
The robber looks at both Rosen and Lockheart and turns and
looks down at the table and picks up the papers.
                                                            
                       BANK ROBBER
We were hired by a man named
Edward. I'm not sure how that
connects to anything but I heard
them talking.. I think he was
talking to Vice Pierce.. I don't
know too many people named Vice so
I think you know who I'm taking
about.
                                                            
 
INT. EDWARD'S HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
Vice sits in his SUV alongside Anne and Daniel. They pull up
to Edwards house for a meeting.
                                                            
                       VICE
I know this is your father, but
you know what has to be done..
                                                            
Anne looks down with her hands on her head.
                                                            

82.

                       DANIEL
We know what this means to our
family.. Though I can't say I
agree with this.. He's our father
and your wife's brother.
                                                            
                       VICE
If you can't watch then you can
stay in the car..
                                                            
Vice opens the car door and steps out. He shuts the car
door. Anne and Daniel stay in the car for the moment. Vice
walks up to the door and opens it and walks in.
                                                            
Vice closes the door behind him. Boss Ramsey, boss Tank, and
others stand around Edward. Vice walks towards him with a
disappointed look on his face. Edward sits down on the couch
in his living room.
                                                            
                       VICE
Where's Donny?
                                                            
                       EDWARD
Leave my younest boy out of this!
                                                            
                       VICE
I'll watch over him..
                                                            
                       EDWARD
So.. are you willing to kill
family? And for what? Because
there was a breach in security?
                                                            
                       VICE
We've worked too hard to screw
this up! Now I shouldn't even go
through with it! I have to beef up
security in the warehouse for
things to go smoothly now!
                                                            
                       EDWARD
So this is it.. Right?
                                                            
Anne and Daniel walk through the door and stand with the
rest of the men.
                                                            

83.

                       EDWARD
Anne.. Daniel..
                                                            
Both Anne and Daniel look at Edward. Daniel stares
intensely.
                                                            
                       DANIEL
Hello father..
                                                            
                       EDWARD
How dare you Vice.. You let them
witness this?
                                                            
The room goes silent for a few moments.
                                                            
                       DANIEL
We decided to be here. Vice had
nothing to do with it.
                                                            
                       EDWARD
Why?
                                                            
                       ANNE
Because we know how important this
deal is to our family.
                                                            
                       DANIEL
And your mistake has put our
family in danger. We now know what
has to be done.
                                                            
Vice gives his men a nod and they grab Edward. Edward
struggles as Vice's men hold him down on the couch.
                                                            
Vice walks slowly to the couch as Anne and Daniel look on.
Vice puts on black gloves and begains to choke Edward. Vice
start off slowly and then after a few seconds the choke
intensifies. Edward starts to gasp for air. Life is leaving
his body. A little teardrop run down Anne's face. Edward is
now dead. Vice lets out a loud scream and the room is
silent. Suddenly Donny walks through the front door.
                                                            
                       DONNY
Vice...
                                                            
Vice turns to see Donny at the door.
                                                            

84.

                       VICE
Hello Don.
                                                            
Vice steps away from the couch revealing Edwards body behind
him.
                                                            
                       DONNY
Dad?
                                                            
                       VICE
Donny....
                                                            
Donny speeds over to Edward.
                                                            
                       DONNY
DAD!! Wake up! Wake Dad!!
                                                            
                       VICE
I'm sorry.. son.
                                                            
                       DONNY
I'm not you son!
                                                            
Donny stands up and looks at Anne and Daniel.
                                                            
                       DONNY
How can you just stand there and
them do this to our father?
                                                            
                       ANNE
We didn't want this to happen as
much as you do!
                                                            
                       DANIEL
Nobody wanted this to happen.
                                                            
                       DONNY
I seriously doubt that!
                                                            
                       VICE
We love you Donny. You are our
family. Come work for us! With
your power you can be an asset to
us. With your speed you can make
us unstoppable.
                                                            

85.

Donny turns and looks at everyone.
                                                            
                       DONNY
That would be great for you. We
would make a good team... But all
I can think about is...
                                                            
                       VICE
What?
                                                            
                       DONNY
I'm going to kick the living shit
out of you..
                                                            
Vice and Donny gives a long glance.
                                                            
                       VICE
What are you going to do?
                                                            
Donny rushes at Vice and knocks him to the ground. Donny
speeds over to some of Vice's men and smashes into them.
                                                            
                       VICE
Anne and Daniel get him!
                                                            
Donny leaps over the other side of the room where Anne and
Daniel stand. Donny pushes Anne back and she hits her head
on the corner of the dresser. The force from the push knocks
her out. Daniel graps on to Donny and they tumble and fall
and break the table.
                                                            
                       DANIEL
You're not going anywhere!
                                                            
They both struggle to their feet. Daniel still holds on.
                                                            
                       DONNY
Wanna bet? Try to keep up!
                                                            
                       VICE
Don't let him get away!
                                                            
Donny takes off out of the front door with Daniel holding
on.
                                                            

86.

                       VICE
Damn it! Find out where their
going!
                                                            
Vice and his men brush themselves off and run outside.
                                                            
                       BOSS RAMSEY
Maybe he still has his radio on
him.
                                                            
                       BOSS TANK
      (on the radio)
Daniel are you there? Do you copy?
                                                            
Donny runs with Daniel holding on. They both fight and
tussle in the middle of the street. Donny continues to run
and fight with Daniel as they make a turn on the street.
Daniel lands a couple of blows to the face of Donny and they
both go flying and roll on the ground. The both look up and
see that they're right in front of Vice's house. They both
stand up.
                                                            
                       DANIEL
      (breathing heavy)
We're at your house Vice.. Better
get here quit.
                                                            
                       VICE
He's going to tell Maria! get in
the car! Now!
                                                            
They all rush to their cars and drive off.
                                                            
 
INT. AT THE PIERCE'S HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
Daniel and Donny stare each other down. Daniel moves at
Donny and Donny throws Daniel into the garage. Daniel is
dazed, but he still is aware enough to reach for a gun
tucked in his pants. He quickly puts a silencer on the gun
and shots at Donny hitting him in the leg. Donny falls to
the ground.
                                                            

87.

Moments later Vice and his men drive up to Vice's house and
park in the driveway. They get out of the car and spot Donny
on the ground and Daniel laying by the garage. They grab
Donny and put him in the car. Vice walks up to Daniel.
                                                            
                       VICE
Nice Job.. We got here just in
time.
                                                            
                       DANIEL
We got lucky.. We Can't come that
close again. You wife can't be
involved.
                                                            
                       VICE
You Know she won't be.. Even
though sometimes it seems like she
knows something..We have to get
rid of him. Go with them to the
railroad station and I'll meet you
there.
                                                            
                       DANIEL
Okay..
                                                            
                       VICE
And thank you for keeping Maria
out of this.
                                                            
                       DANIEL
It's my job uncle...
                                                            
                       VICE
I'll go talk to my wife and I'll
meet you there.
                                                            
Daniel nods and walks back to the car were they have Donny.
Vice walks into his house.
                                                            
 
EXT. IN WAGNER'S ALLEY - DAY
                                                            
King walks up to a sleeping Wagner and sits down across from
him. Suddenly he wakes up.
                                                            

88.

                       WAGNER
      (sitting up)
Hey King.. You are still alive. I
was beginning to wonder.
                                                            
Wagner stretches and tries to wake up.
                                                            
                       KING
Yeah I'm here.. Things are getting
stranger by the minute. I have so
many people after me.. And now I
have someone I'm after.
                                                            
                       WAGNER
Can I ask who?
                                                            
                       KING
A man by the name Vice Pierce.
                                                            
                       WAGNER
Vice? Oh No..
                                                            
                       KING
You know of him?
                                                            
                       WAGNER
Do I know of him? I use to work
with him. I should say for him.
He's the reason I have nothing..
That bastard!
                                                            
                       KING
I want to know everything about
him. His weaknesses, strengths if
any.. I want to know about his
crew.. I want to know about his
family. Can you do that for me?
                                                            
                       WAGNER
His weakness? He's human, flesh
and bone.. The strengths, are he
has an empire and his family of
Hybrids.
                                                            

89.

                       KING
So you have anything on his
empire?
                                                            
                       WAGNER
It's been a longtime since I was
outed by the Pierce family but he
has a niece an nephew... Anne and
Daniel.. Anne has the ability to
send off shock waves with her
voice.. She is very dangerous and
can't be taken lightly.
                                                            
                       KING
What about Daniel?
                                                            
                       WAGNER
He's their stealth guy. He can
turn invisible in the blink of an
eye. He's also stronger when he's
in the invisible state. Both of
them are most likely stronger than
they were when I last saw them.
                                                            
                       KING
Thank you Wanger for sharing this
with me even though you just meet
me a couple days ago. Thanks for
being a good friend.
                                                            
                       WAGNER
You're a good man King and you
didn't deserve all this trouble.
                                                            
                       KING
Thank you. Help me take down the
man who took everything away from
you. Help me take destroy Pierce's
empire.
                                                            
                       WAGNER
I never thought I'd would say this
but I will help you take them
down..
                                                            
They both shake hands and show respect to one another.
                                                            

90.

                       KING
I think it's time for action.. I
think a meeting is in order with
Officer Lockheart.
                                                            
 
EXT. ABANDON RAILROAD STATION - DAY
                                                            
The SUV pulls up and parks at by the tracks at the station.
Vice's men grab Donny and pull him from the SUV. Donny
struggles to move as they drag him on the ground by the
tracks. The men drop him on the ground and Donny tries to
craw away.
                                                            
Daniel gets out of the SUV and stands outside of the car. He
looks at the Vice's car that pulls up next to the SUV. Vice
and Anne get out of the car. Anne walks over next to Daniel
as Vice walks over towards the rest of the group.
                                                            
                       VICE
      (pulling out a gun)
We're going to make this quick
Donny...
                                                            
                       DONNY
      (laying on the
       ground)
Kiss my ass Vice! All of you
can..kiss.. my.. ass!
                                                            
Vice turns and looks around. A small tear runs down his face
and he squeezes the trigger and shoots Donny three times in
the chest. Donny is dead. Vice and his men look down at him
for a moment.
                                                            
                       VICE
      (Looking down at
       the body)
You know what to do with the body.
                                                            
Vice walks away from the body back towards his car. Daniel
and Anne stare with a sadden look on their faces.

HELP!
                                                            
                       KENDALL
PLEASE! WE WERE FRIENDS! We have a
past.
                                                            
                       KING
I DON'T BELIEVE YOU!
                                                            

97.

                       KENDALL
listen you were kidnapped by this
corporation i work for! I had no
idea it was going to be you! You
have to believe me! I had no idea.
                                                            
King slowly lets Kendall down and he lets go of him.
                                                            
                       KING
I don't care if we are friends or
not I should kill you for helping
them do this to me.
                                                            
                       KENDALL
I know you are upset and I'm sorry
for everything I've done to you...
I was going to track you down.
There are things you need to know
about yourself and what you have
become.
                                                            
                       KING
What I've become?
                                                            
                       KENDALL
Yes.. You were kidnapped. And we
brought you here. A Man named
Victor Primeus is behind your
capture. He planned everything. I
was hired to run the computers. I
had no idea they would doing
something this extreme.
                                                            
King walks away and turns his back in anger.
                                                            
                       KENDALL
Look.. I can help you.
                                                            
King turns around quickly.
                                                            
                       KING
How can you help me?

the top floors of the building.
            (MORE)

98.

                       KENDALL (cont'd)
The chip will help you get all
your memories back. I will help
you get it.
                                                            
                       KING
You try to get the chip. I'm going
for Primeus. And any body that
gets in my way.
                                                            
                       KENDALL
You use that sword of yours yet?
                                                            
                       KING
A little. Why?
                                                            
                       KENDALL
It's a one of a kind.. It's a
special metal called "ELM". It's
the strongest of it's kind. No
other sword stands a chance. And
your gun.. Is one of a kind pretty
much unlimited ammo unless the
it's damaged somehow.
                                                            
                       KING
And what about this metal plate on
my head?
                                                            
                       KENDALL
It's a power dampener. If you take
it off you will nearly double your
strength and all your other
abilities. It also defects any
mental powers.. But if you take it
off you will have less control of
your abilities.
                                                            
                       KING
This is a lot to take...
                                                            
                       KENDALL
I understand... Primeus wanted to
make the perfect weapon. You are
just that. I'm sorry it had to be
you. I'm sorry for everything.
                                                            

99.

                       KING
I can tell you're an honest man. I
trust you. I know you're putting
you life in danger for me and i
thank you.
                                                            
                       KENDALL
It's the least I can do for
messing up your life like I did.
                                                            
                       KING
We better go. I have to make a
call first. I'm letting him know
I'm coming.
                                                            
                       KENDALL
I'm going to get the chip. Good
luck I'll get in contact once I
have it.
                                                            
They both nod and Kendall sneaks back into the building from
the side. King dials on a phone he has in a pocket.

                       DRAKE

                       KING
NO? What am I?
                                                            
                       DRAKE
You are the greatest weapon in the
world! Learn to use it with us!
                                                            
                       KING
You know I can't do that!
                                                            
                       DRAKE
