THE STORY BEGINS:
In the city of New York, it is a very cloudy and rainy day. It’s the year 2021, where houses float and cars hover. Every person has a special, unique gift, like shape shifting or voices that sing like angels. One day, it seemed like an ordinary day and a very happy city but then the Jack Steelers came to change that very fast. The Jack Steelers were from a very weird place called Villomania. They were called Evil DG, DD, and CC. They heard about how wealthy the city was and came to rob them. They started robbing stores and banks… Two days later, they were in a bank. “Haha, we are the Jack Steelers, and we are here to steal your money,” Evil DG said. So the Jack Steelers took out their guns and threatened to shoot…
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? THE JACK STEELERS EXPLAIN:
“Then out of nowhere a superhero [Robot Boy] came and pushed us out of the building but luckily our secret plane came and got us just in time and we flew back to our secret lair.”
HOW DID ALL OF THIS CRIME GET STARTED? ONE OF THE JACK STEELER’S MOTHERS EXPLAINS:
“Many years ago, Jack Steelers weren’t all bad. They were teased when they were kids. They had to sit alone every day at school. They had no friends until they grew up. When they turned 13, they met each other. Then they turned 14. They came up with the Jack Steelers. DD, DG, and CC all tried to get revenge on their friends because they didn’t eat with them.”
A YOUNG HEROINE ENTERS THE STORY TO SAVE THE DAY:
Mia is an 8 year old with brown hair and brown eyes. She always had a dream to be a singer. Every night she would dream she was a singer and she would be on a stage with fans, but she is too shy to sing in front of fans, Mom, Dad, her family, friends, and everyone. She was so shy she would not even mumble.
One afternoon, Mia is walking home from school and notices the Jack Steelers. They were trying to break into the mayor’s house. She was very horrified. She didn’t know what to do. The idea that she had was to start singing to distract the Jack Steelers and attract a large crowd so there are too many people around for them to break in but… she was scared. Mia tried to think of another plan, but there was none. She took a deep breath and let it all out, which made the Jack Steelers, along with many others, pay attention and ruin their plan. But then the head leader of the Jack Steelers had a brilliant idea that involved the talented Mia.
They do something to her brain, then she becomes one of the Jack Steelers.
The Jack Steelers:
“Her brain is replaced with a Jack Steeler’s brain!”
IS THIS THE END OF MIA?! NO, IN FACT:
Mia only pretended to be a Jack Steeler.
OTHERS, HOWEVER, DO BEGIN TO FALL UNDER THE BAD INFLUENCE OF THE JACK STEELERS:
One thundery night in New York 2021, Officer Midget was in town at a coffee shop. And all of a sudden a killer came in and stole the cash register and he was so fast he couldn’t see him and he never saw him again.
THE CRIME WAVE SPREADS TO OTHER CITIES!
One day Big Boy Killer went to the White House and snuck some of the president’s money. Then he put a bomb on him and stepped back and… BOOM. He blew the president up and all of the police came after him and he went to jail. The police had a long day.
One day Officer Midget went outside in New York City to find the killer who broke out of jail but when he turned around he got shot. After that, Robot Boy came and killed Big Boy Killer for life. The superhero that killed the killer is now the hero of New York City.
BUT THE JACK STEELERS ESCALATE THEIR CRIMES:
A billionaire scientist gets robbed. He says, “The Jack Steelers came and stole my million dollar gold robot that has military weapons that will help the Jack Steelers rob stuff faster.”
THIS SCIENTIST IS ACTUALLY THE FATHER OF ROBOT BOY, THE SUPERHERO! THE SCIENTIST EXPLAINS:
“After I adopted my new son, I was working on my best project when he came and asked for a cookie so I gave him one, then he took off. Then I finally got it. I invented the power of invincibility!”
THE SCIENTIST, HIS SON ROBOT BOY THE SUPERHERO, AND OTHER GOOD GUYS GET TO WORK:
They make a load of army soldiers and robots and a humongous dinosaur. Then they battle the villains. The Jack Steelers got so mad their faces turned red like a volcano.
THE SCIENTIST ISSUES A COMMAND:
“Discharge all of the robots!”
Someone will switch a button that controls all of the robots to then attack the villains. They’ll regret robbing and stealing because the person that switches the button tells them about what happens to the people who steal and rob. The person tells them the people who rob and steal go to jail. So then they stop stealing and they return the money back to the stores, gas station, and the bank. So the real army sets a nuke and blows all the robots away.
WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE OTHER “BAD GUYS” WHO WERE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THE JACK STEELERS? IT TURNS OUT THAT BIG BOY KILLER WASN’T DEAD, JUST BADLY WOUNDED. HE EXPLAINS:
“While the superhero was fighting crime, I was in the hospital. I was thinking of joining the good side or bad side. I’m joining the good side.”
WHERE ARE THE JACK STEELERS NOW? THEY TELL US IN THEIR OWN WORDS:
“One of us falls in love and one of us turns smart and one turns good. The Jack Steelers are no longer bad, they are nice.”
DG: “Hey you guys! Don’t you feel weird from when that superhero had zapped us?
DD: “Yeah, I feel so good. I think I am going to pick some flowers.”
CC: “I think I’m going to go to the library.”
DG: “You guys, I think I’m starting to feel lonely. I’m going to go out there and find me a man. Peace!!!”
THE END… OR IS IT?!
(WILL MIA EVER SING AGAIN?
WILL ROBOT BOY AND DG FALL IN LOVE?
YOU’LL HAVE TO WAIT FOR THE SEQUEL TO FIND OUT!)
