For being a fan of DC comics and a fan of the first 2 Critters movies, i thought it would be a logical crossover for both Warner properties to fight each other in a crazy but interesting crossover. It's set after the events of Critters 2 about a year later, Charlie is still a bounty hunter who works with Ug and his new partner Zula (who is in need of a bodyfit yet finds the right one later on) as they thought they got rid of the whole Crite problem. Lex Luthor discovers some eggs in Grover's Bend as he has a plan to take care of Metropolis with a plague and of use a scheme to use an alien virus on Superman then have him deal with the man-eating dustmops from space while he is very slowly weakening of his powers. Charlie with the other bounty hunters must go to Metropolis, help Superman fight them off and even try to find a cure for Supe's illness including to save the city.
This story is told in a script kind of fashion.
over the past 2 years, the town of Grover's Bend Kansas always had a problem with alien creatures. These weren't ordinary ETs they were dealing with, they were a lethal plague of hungry creatures that devoured every living thing their path. The first encounter happened 3 and half years ago on a prison asteroid, the creatures known as Crites escaped causing 2 dead and 3 wounded as they stolen a ship thus Warden Zanti hired 2 blank-faced shapeshifting bounty hunters named Ug and Lee to hunt them down. Apparently the creatures landed on Earth in Grover's Bend where they attacked a farming family known as the Browns, the 2 bounty hunters one who took on the body/face of rock singer Johnny Steele and Lee on various people like Officer Jeff Barnes to Reverend Miller to Charlie Mcfadden as they caused a ruckus looking for the Crites in Grover's Bend but one of the Browns named Bradley came to help them including the REAL Charlie Mcfadden.
The problem was solved but not for long, 2 years later there were eggs that were unhatched since that night with the Browns as they did moved to Kansas City away from the town when their story tore the town apart. Charlie for 2 years had been sober since as he works as a bounty hunter with his buddies from space Ug and Lee but were alerted by Zanti that G-sweep indicated Crite life on Earth. The eggs were hatched on Easter day as they attacked the town, luckily Ug and Lee whom just assumed the form of a playboy centerfold with Chuck arrived to save the town but that night Ug's partner Lee got eaten by the Crites causing him to be sad to revert to his original faceless no-body self. Brad who just came back to town the other day for Easter vacation with his grandmother as he with his girlfriend Meg and foe turned friend Wesley all got together to blow up the Crites in the local hamburger factory. It backfired, making the Crites fused into a big Critter ball that ate some people, Charlie used the ship to blow it up to pieces leaving his buddy Ug turn into him in honor of Charlie yet was pleasantly surprised to see the REAL Chuck alive then a spaceship took Ug back to the station and been declared a town hero.
Chuck still does work as a bounty hunter only when he is called by Ug so that he can be picked up for fun adventures in saving people and planets from other scum in the universe. Ug just found a replacement for Lee named Zula, he/she/it is another blank-faced shapeshifter from Ug's race as it has been a hunter for 5 years yet just got assigned to work with Ug and Charlie.
Too bad Zula is having a hard time finding the right body-fit yet not satisfied until he/she/it finds the right self but is a quality hunter no doubt just like Ug. Speaking of which, Ug got his body-fit of Johnny Steele back as he is glad he has it back for it's what made him happy and promises never to loose it again, but to keep on to it as long as he lives.
In Grover's Bend Kansas at the Hungry Heifer restaurant.
We see Chuck Mcfadden as one of their employees there working on the grill on hotdogs as the nerdy manager guy you saw in Critters 2 named Phil is serving.
Phil the Hungry Heifer Manager: Say Charlie, have you checked on the dogs to see if they are any good?
Chuck: *Checking with plastic gloves* yes, they all seem perfect if you ask me. Say uh, do you remember last year when Lee took your glasses?
Phil The Hungry Heifer Manager: Lee?
Charlie: The space chick who transformed into you when you pissed her off.
Phil The Hungry Heifer Manager: Oh yes...*shudders* i'll never forget that moment, lucky i had an extra pair at home. So since your a bounty hunter, what is it like?
Charlie: *As he wipes the counter after doing hot-dog duty* Oh you know, just going to other planets to save some people, hunt down criminals and earn space money. Personally i prefer Earth money if you ask me, but i should say it's a fun job if your into hunting as much as i am.
Phil The Hungry Heifer Manager: Oh yes i've done some hunting for quite some time with my dad. Fun, i should say but not as much as you described when it comes to aliens especially those little killer tribbles.
Charlie: I know what you mean, those Crites are like hairy cockroaches you know and me with my 2 buddies are exterminators of whatever alien crook or vermin there is beyond the cosmos. Glad those hairy bastards are dead you know....dead as a doornail. Say uh Phil, did you hear about Lex Luthor in Kansas City K? i hear that man is a genius and one of the wealthiest people in America.
Phil: *puts money in cash in safe* Indeed Chuck, that man is top of the line especially in Metropolis. I mean oh to be like him...huge swimming pools, establishments, filet dinner and that sort of thing plus a high IQ, no wonder that man is respected. He's almost cooler than Bruce Wayne if you ask me.
Charlie: Are you kiddin'? Bruce Wayne can own Luthor in a poker game of better millionaire.
Meanwhile we go into Quigley's Antique store which had been closed for a year since the owner's death, we see 2 crates full of Crite eggs in them.
To Be Continued later... need rest.
