Gord wakes up that morning with a slight case of the sniffles, but suddenly realizes that it is not that important, as there is an alien invasion in progress outside. Luckily, a few months ago when he constructed his based, he decided for the sewers. Even aliens don’t go there.
Gord goes look to see if anyone else is awake.
Everyone is awake watching the news broadcast. Aliens invading is pretty big, at least for Borderline City. Every other alien has been pretty nice up to this point.
Torturess to Gob: Yeah, did you see that laser ray? That was intense. Let’s see how many the Captain can take before it melts his moustache!
Gord notices on the tube that it’s a closeup of Captain Masochisto, fighting what appears to be a soap bubble. A big soap bubble. One that shoots lasers.
Gord: Torturess, you’ve been up against that guy before. I know he can take it, sure, but can he dish it out at all?
Torturess: Yeah, once he hits critical mass, he gets stronger and stronger until he can flick you into orbit.
Gord: Well, I guess that explains how he ever gets anything done.
Torturess: Yeah, wish I had half his powers.
Gob: Gob, gob!
Torturess: You can say that again. I think his suit is totally fried now. Whoa, I understood that…
Gord: Yeah, it happens eventually. Nothing to be ashamed of. Glad that guy sprang for the black box briefs, at least, even if he spared all expenses on the rest of his costume design.
The TV cuts to a closeup of machine guns firing and pans back as the bubble reflects all of the bullets.
Torturess: Yeah, I burned his costume when I had him locked up. I think he gets them imported in mass.
Gob: Gob, gob.
Gord: I probably would too if getting shot was a vital part of my plans.
Torturess: Hey, that’s just down the street. Wanna go topside and watch the action from a rooftop?
Gord: Hmmm… shrugs Why not?
Gord: They aren’t spraying that many lasers around.
Torturess: He also hasn’t missed even once…
TV: A tank explodes.
Torturess: Let’s go! I want to see another one blow in person!
Gord: Well, if only everyone else in this city had that kind of accuracy.
Torturess: Then the goons would win instead of being crushed like flies. Though, it’s tough to crush flies too. And I guess that’s why you can always find them near shit.
Gord: I’m not even going to guess where you’re going with that one. Come on, we’re going topside.
