S. Inc Comics: the Ringed Skull #1
Michael Sooth is studying crystal radiation on Pluto.
With the power the crystals possess, it could give anyone incredible knowledge, power, or even a cure for cancer! I must go! The rocket I made should get me there.
So, Michael Sooth sets off to Pluto to gather some of the crystal radiation.
Bob Wager is watching the news.
In other news, scientist Michael Sooth, owner of Sooth Inc, has went to Pluto to study the crystal radiation.
What!?! He was always put in the spotlight instead of me!
Bob remembers back to his childhood.
Dad liked him more when he won the science fair and I made varsity squad.
Mom liked him more when he graduated for college and I won the state championship.
Now he’s getting fame for going to Pluto, while I’m making 500,000 dollars a year! That’s it!
One week has passed since Michael went to Pluto. He has now returned, but Bob stole a few chunks of the crystal radiation.
Now to figure out how they work.
However, the crystals light up, and go towards Bob. They hit him
Bob becomes incredibly strong.
It must of been the crystals. Now, I can crush that worm. But, he’s smart enough he’ll turn that stuff into a weapon. I must prepare.
Meanwhile, Michael was working with the crystals. He turned it into a ring with a skull carved into it.
Incredible! I must use this power for good!
Michael makes himself a costume, and decides he will call himself, the Ringed Skull.
But, he wasn’t the onyl super-being born that day. Bob made a costume, made himself a weapon, and named himself, the Executioner.
I know what will get his attention! There’s no way he can stay away if I’m stealing from a bank!
One month later, Executioner is driving a car.
I decided to rob a bank to buy a car to steal from a bank.
He walks inside the bank.
Everyone, put your hands in the air! Oh, it’s Sunday. Good!
7 minutes later, Bob comes out of the bank. There’s a cop waiting for him outside.
The cop begins to shoot. The bullets just bounce off of Executioner’s chest. Then, the Ringed Skull comes in.
I don’t care who you are, but you’re going to jail pal.
You don’t recognize me Michael?
How do you know who I am?
Executioner takes off his mask, revealing himself to be Bob Wager.
It’s your half brother, Bob!
That was a trick!
Ringed Skull fires an energy beam at him, but it only destroys Executioner’s shirt.
You can hut me, but not my clothes. Now I will hurt you, but not your clothes!
Executioner runs at Ringed Skull with a ball and chain, and hits him right in the head with it, sending Ringed Skull crashing to the ground.
Ow. Just, ow.
RINGED SKULL (thoughts):
The Sooth Inc nuclear reactor is just two miles away. If I can lure him there.
Ringed Skull flies up, and starts flying away.
No! you’re not getting away that easily!
Executioner chases Ringed Skull, until they reach the Sooth Inc. nuclear reactor.
I will kill you!
Executioner charges at Skull with an axe, but Skull gets out of the way and Executioner falls into the reactor.
He’s locked in the reactor! I hope this works!
Ringed Skull fires at the reactor, and it explodes.
EXT. Press conference
One week has passed since Ringed Skull faced Executioner. Michael Sooth is giving a press conference on the generator exploding.
Operantly, a bird flew into the nuclear generator. As for the people in costumes, they are simply robots gone...
Michael stops for a moment.
I can’t say this. You people deserve the truth. And, the truth is, I am Ringed Skull.
the end, for now.
