(News reporters talk over each other)

Sir, we found it.

- Government agencies have now cordoned off the area…

- Jane, I think you’ll wanna see this.

You alright?

- You dare threaten me, Thor, with so puny a weapon?

- What? He was freaking me out.

- Where did he come from?


- He said it was, Thor?

You know for a crazy homeless person he’s pretty cut.

How’d you get inside that cloud?

- Also, how could you eat an entire box of pop-tarts and still be this hungry?

- This drink (HOLDS UP MUG) I like it. Another! (SMASHES MUG ON THE FLOOR)

- This is going on Facebook. Smile!

Your ancestors called it magic and you call it science. Well where I come from they are one in the same.

- Well who are you really?

- You’ll see soon enough.

- God, I hope you’re not crazy.

Do you swear to guard the lives of the innocent and preserve the peace?

- I swear.

I will destroy their kind.

- You can’t kill an entire race!

- Then die with them!

- These people are innocent. I have no plans to die today.
