G2009 Radio Play - Act Three
Norman Osborn was a fool. So obsessed with the power of science, he kept the Crown of Thorns in this vault as if it was just another souvenir – albeit an expensive one – to hang upon his wall. But with the Crown and the Spear of Destiny together, I now have the power to force all of humanity to its knees.
These are Christian icons, Demona. Not every human being is a Christian.
Not every human being speaks Latin, but that didn't stop me from using a Latin spell to turn a city-full of humans to stone. The magic I wield is potent beyond measure. Mine is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory. No human may resist. No human will be spared. None will be spared who oppose me. Just look at this fool…
Her name is Obsidiana.
Of course it is. For she wears the mystic Obsidian pendant fashioned by human sorcerers. Even that is enough to put her in my thrall. She has relinquished her gargoyle birthright.
I have relinquished nothing.
Demona waves the Spear of Destiny, and Electro rises and blasts Goliath back into the wall.
Yes, I'm surprised you're unaffected… since you reek of humanity. The stink of your human whore is in your hair, on your lips, everywhere. And nothing in this world will give me more pleasure, Goliath, than watching your detective on her knees to me, as she draws her service revolver and thanks me with tears of joy in her eyes… before gratefully blowing out her own brains.
That will never be.
No? My power expands with every second. I doubt she's far away.
You will not harm Elisa.
Goliath advances on Demona. Electro blasts away, but Goliath will not be stopped…
No one ever said you weren't persistent, Goliath. But what do you hope to gain?
(through gritted teeth)
I will turn these forces back upon you.
Impossible. I am the last true gargoyle left on this world. The Crown's magicks cannot touch me.
So you believe. But I am not the only one who reeks of humanity. Am I… Dominique?!
Goliath grasps the crown. The thorns bite into his hands, drawing blood. They struggle for control of the immense power…
691. GOLIATH, DEMONA
<roaring to the heavens>
Goliath's intervention – and his complete immunity to the Crown's effects – creates the smallest of fluctuation in Demona's control. In a haze, Spider-Man lifts his arm…
He shoots off a web, yanking the bloody crown from Demona's head.
There is a massive explosion of mystic energy and light! Demona, Goliath and Electro collapse.
The Spear… the Crown…
Gone. I think they… blew up. Calypso's gone too. But I'm betting that's just a talent of hers. And I'd guess she's taken Kraven and the pussycat with her.
But the Big Bad's still here…
Leaving behind, as always, nothing but a handful of thorns…
Goliath, Spider-Man and Demona sit. Jonah, Elisa, Matt and George STAND.
While Goliath helps Obsidiana, Spidey webs up Demona, Electro and Ock. In the outer vault, Zafiro and the Trio recover, finding only an unconscious and de-venomed Eddie Brock. Outside, the bad guys have all been beaten. Goblin and Vulture, their tech badly damaged, barely manage to fly away. Carnage and Jupiter are once again Cletus and John.
I'm here, Johnny. Your old Pop's here…
Call an ambulance, Elisa. Old Man Dracon said something about seeing a light. Then he collapsed. A stroke or something. I've been giving him C.P.R.
Matt… Matt! You can stop. Stop. He's gone.
You're gargoyles are flying off, Detective.
Really? Not sure I see 'em myself. But is that Spidey web-slinging away?
You think? I must have missed him?
Are you all blind?! They're right over there!
714. GEORGE, MATT, ELISA (UNISON)
Oh, give it a rest, Margot…
Elisa, Matt, George, Margot and Jonah sit. Peter, May, Harry and Gwen STAND.
Back at the bus…
I'm back. And not a single decent picture to show for my efforts.
Well, you tried your best, Peter. I'm sure Mr. Jameson will appreciate that.
Oh, yeah. He's a sweetheart that way.
Emily Osborn watches as her son finally emerges from the bathroom.
Hey, Gwen. I feel much better.
Harry, Gwen, Peter and May sit. Jonah and Robbie STAND.
Later that night, at The Bugle…
Whaddayou mean I can't publish it?! How else can I make them all pay for what they did to Johnny!
You can't publish because the authorities refuse to comment. We have no pictures or statements to corroborate a story that includes gargoyles, a dead Green Goblin and everything except the kitchen sink. No one will believe it. I was there, and I don't believe it! Print this, Jonah, and The Bugle becomes the next Daily Tattler.
Ms. Brant, call the bomb squad. BECAUSE I'M ABOUT TO EXPLODE!!
Jonah and Robbie sit. Gwen, Peter, Kong, Curt, Harry, EMILY OSBORN and Mary Jane STAND.
Later still, aboard OsCorp's private jet en route to Miami…
I still can't believe we ran into you in the airport parking lot, Doctor Connors.
Yeah, and we're so sorry you got mugged.
Dude, they took your shoes?! That's hilarious! <laughs>
Yes, well, I just really appreciate the ride back to Florida…
Anytime, Doctor C. Anytime.
Harry, could I have a moment… in your father's office?
Uh, sure, Mom.
Curt, Kong and Gwen sit.
734. MARY JANE
736. MARY JANE
Tiny. Cute enough, but it's like talking to a tree stump.
Tried to warn you.
738. MARY JANE
Just say we'll spend the week as a threesome, okay, Tiger.
740. MARY JANE
Not that kind of threesome.
Mary Jane and Peter sit.
Meanwhile, Harry follows his mother Emily into the jet's private office.
I know you were playing at being the Goblin, Harry.
What?! Mom, that's crazy! I was in the bathroom…
Don't lie to me, baby. You hired the worst chauffer in the city to delay our progress. You had a secret hatch installed in the bus bathroom, so you could slip in and out undetected. And you left a pre-recorded "vomit tape" with voice recognition software. All very impressive for a sixteen-year-old. But you need to understand… the Green Goblin is not what your father wanted for you.
I have no idea what Dad wanted for me…
Then let him tell you…
She slips a DVD into the computer and Norman Osborn appears on screen…
NORMAN OSBORN STANDS.
Harry, my son. If you are watching this, then I am dead. And I have instructions…
Norman, Emily and Harry sit. Big Man, Blackie and SHARI STAND.
Meanwhile at the Big Man's office, he and Blackie Gaxton are visited by Shari, a young woman wearing a pendant depicting an eye atop a pyramid…
750. BIG MAN
Nine. Any problems?
753. BIG MAN
Not particularly. Ms. Destine was ready to believe I could find Dracon and the others useful.
And that faux Goblin was happy to believe I'd been fooled into thinking he was the real thing.
Blackie removes his false face, revealing that he is actually the Chameleon in disguise.
Just as he was happy to believe I was the real Blackie Gaxton. But I'm still not sure why the Society wanted all this…?
Isn't it enough to know the Illuminati appreciates your efforts?
CHAMELEON and Big Man sit. THAILOG, BRENTWOOD, Homunculus #1, Homunculus #2 And Homunculus #3 STAND.
Shari leaves Lincoln's office and pulls out her cellphone…
Dial Nightstone Unlimited.
The Spear? The Crown?
Waiting for you to send to Duval.
Brentwood capture little robot. Use it to control other little robots. When bright light shine, robots take spear and crown.
What should we do with the Homunculi?
Set them free. Maybe they'll get their own series some day.
767. HOMUNCULUS #1
Free, free, set them free…
768. HOMUNCULUS #2
On basic cable and DVD…
769. HOMUNCULUS #3
Homunculus #3, Homunculus #2, Homunculus #1, Shari, Thailog and Brentwood sit. Elisa and Goliath STAND.
At the castle, Elisa's cell rings.
Maza… Yeah, Captain Stacy said you might call. Sure, he's right here.
She hands the phone to Goliath, who doesn't quite know how to hold it. She takes it back and puts the call on speaker.
Hey, Goliath. It's your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man.
You protect your… neighborhood.
Just like you do the super-hero thing without the tights.
Spider-Man, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Hey, I was just gonna say that. You saw that movie too?
God, I love you… <kiss>
Elisa, Goliath and Spider-Man sit. Kafka STANDS.
And finally – yes, finally – we end where we began. In the offices of Dr. Ashley Kafka at Ravencroft. She's on the phone to her Board of Directors.
After all that tsuris, little has changed. Otto and Eddie are still disassociative. Max still needs a cure, and John still wants power. Cletus? He just keeps repeating, "I got a taste now," over and over. Yes, we lost Dominic, I'm afraid. But we do have a new patient…
783. KAFKA (CONT)
Just wait until the sun goes down…
Dominique and Kafka sit.
NEXT: I finally get back to answering questions...
