NOVEMBER – THE YEAR 2075

ABRAHAM BENDO TOWERHOME OF THE MIND

“Are you mad Mind!!” a hologram of Senator Richards follows The Mind around his apartment as he looks for a tool for the project he’s working on.

“Mad I am not Senator…” he replies as he finally finds it.

“Ah, here it is” he proclaims, and continues to speak at the Senator “You can not simply sweep this mutant problem under the rug…” he then turns and faces the Senator’s hologram.

“You must destroy them all…” he then continues to work on his project, which looks like some kind of small motor, and continues to speak.

“Only then will the truest peace return…” he looks at the hologram once more “Peace of Mind…”.

The mind than puts his hand on his chin as if in Mock Thought… “Pun not intended, but it really should have been… Terribly clever” he continues working.

“With all the crazy humanitarians around, you must be mad… As it is, they’re all waiting around for you to cure the mutants as you did with the The Spangor Epidemic…”.

The Mind looks up at the hologram once more “The Mutants are not something that can merely be given an antidote Senator… They are “Mutated”, one might even say “Evolved”… Not intellectually, but…” he starts to work again, but continues speaking.

“No one said Evolution was kind…” The Mind sums up, the Senator does not look amused.

“Ah, there we are, it’s done…” with this The Mind holds the small engine looking device up in the air.

He then starts to look for warm clothing but continues to speak.

“We are the ones that should be extinct… However, things being what they are, we must do what we humans have always done… Fight to survive… And merely avoiding, and/or “hiding” from the mutants, is not truly living…”

The Mind puts on his large black jacket, but is still walking around the apartment barefoot, but continues.

“And it by no means loans itself towards the direction of rebuilding a world“.

The Mind than stops and looks at the hologram that has been following him all over the apartment.

“Goodbye Senator” he clicks his watch ending the transmission.

“Now where did I put those warm socks?”.

OUTSIDE ABRAHAM BENDO TOWER

The ground is covered in snow as The Mind stands at the bottom of the stairs that lead to his Tower. He’s holding the engine that he has just completed.

Around him there are some woodland creatures, rabbits and squirrels mostly, and one deer.

“Sorry Gents” he says out loud as he holds the motor out in front of him, and pushes a single Blue Button “CLICK“.

ZAPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!” suddenly hundreds of feet of a light blue electricity spews forth before him, some seventy feet wide, and all the woodland creatures are suddenly lifted into the air, and then explode “SPRRAAAAAAAAAAAK!!“.

With this The Mind smiles his familiar maniacal grin “Oh yes… That will work just fine”.

NEXT TIME… JAROD BLACK IS FOLLOWED… AGAIN
