WARNING!!!

This Q&A Session contains full spoilers for E.G.G Episode 54: E.G.G v.s A.I.M Part 2- Only for Killing! If you have not read it, please click here to do so now!

Review

Josh and Acacia continued to make their way through A.I.M, disguising themselves as agents so they wouldn't draw attention. Unfortunately, the mighty M.O.D.O.K (Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing) saw through their ruse and put the entire base on alert. Luckily, Josh was able to find a genetic scrambler and free up Acacia's powers, though she's still somewhat weak. Eileen, meanwhile, escaped Maya's captivity, and now roams the base as Lightstream, desperately looking for a way out. Back home, however, Agent Rice and James interrogated Justin Hammer for some answers, and by the advice of Squirrel Girl, set out to mount a full scale invasion on A.I.M...

Eileen goes all Darkstream!

Eileen slowly opened her eyes. She looked around groggily. She saw three agents sitting around, talking and laughing. She pulled against the restraint, but was too weak to even make a worthwhile effort.

“Hey, she’s up.” One of the agents said.

“Alright, get the machines,” a second one said. “Let’s start another extraction cycle. Hopefully she doesn’t faint this time.”

“Please…” Eileen whined. “No more…”

“Aw quit your whining.” The third agent said. “Let’s get these needles in her.” Suddenly Eileen’s eyes flashed red.

“I said no more!” She shouted, her voice two in one. Suddenly objects began to fly around the room.

“Whoa! What the heck is she doing!” One agent said, as they took cover. Eileen looked at the restraints, pulled, and broke them.

“She’s free!” An agent shouted. “Hansen’s gonna have our heads! Trnaq her!” They began shooting tranquilizer bullets, but Eileen stopped them all in front of her face, and they fell to the ground. The agents stared in disbelief.

“Run?” One asked.

“Run.” The other two confirmed, and they were gone the next second. Eileen’s eyes reverted to normal. She shook her head and looked around the room.

“Gotta get out of here, find Josh and Acacia.” She reached into Maya’s bag and pulled out her Lightstream costume.

* * *

Uh-oh! That was scary! Remember, time's been rewritten, so Darkstream never happened. That means Eileen could lose at any point in time. I know, right? Suspenseful! Let's just hope that E.G.G can beat A.I.M in time, or we'll have another Dark Day on our hands!

The Hammer falls

Just then two officers escorted Justin Hammer into the room in cuffs and sat him in the chair.

“Easy boys!” He said. “I am very delicate.” The officers rolled their eyes and left. Rice approached Hammer. “I already told the other guys I’m not saying a word until my lawyer flies in from Paraguay.”

“You see, you don’t get to do that with me.” Rice said, sliding his S.H.I.E.L.D badge onto the table. Hammer gulped.

“S.H.I.E.L.D huh?” He said. “That serious?”

“Listen, we don’t care about whatever illegal investments you made, that’s for the police to deal with. We want to know what happened to E.G.G.”

“You want to know about an egg?” Hammer asked, confused. Squirrel Girl smacked him across the face. “Ow! Hey!”

“Don’t play dumb with us mister!” She said. Rice put his hand on her shoulder.

“Squirrel Girl, stay over in the corner please.” He said.

“But you said I could smack him if he started being a smart-mouth!”

“Yeah but, he actually doesn’t know what E.G.G is.”

“Ooohhh… Sorry!” She walked into the corner of the room. Rice turned back to Hammer.

“Experimental Government Gadgets. There was a guy and two girls?” Hammer stared blankly. “They’re the ones that put you away!”

“No, that was Eileenith Apricot.” Hammer replied. Squirrel Girl leapt forward and smacked him again. “Ow! Stop it!”

“Her name is Eileen Wuthrich!”

“Oh yeah, she told me that, after she rejected my affection. Such a shame, she was a very beautiful woman. I was even thinking about taking her to Venice with me, so we could, you know, get jiggy with it.” James slammed the wall.

“Enough with the song and dance!” He yelled. Rice tried to grab him but he shoved Rice aside and gripped Hammer’s collar. Hammer cowered in fear.

“Please! I’m delicate, remember!” He begged.

“Well I’m gonna break your delicate face if you don’t tell me where to find Eileen!” James growled rearing back his fist.

“I don’t know! I don’t know!” Hammer squealed. “A-all I know is that she was asking me a lot of questions about A.I.M!”

“What the shock is A.I.M?”

“Advanced Idea Mechanics, they have an island laboratory, just south of England, it’s big and yellow, if you fly below the clouds you can’t miss it! Now please don’t hurt me!”

* * *

Well, I guess Justin Hammer's good for something. If you didn't notice, I was kind of going for the 'good cop, bad cop' approach with Agent Rice and James. I guess you can throw nutty cop in there too for Squirrel Girl. I just thought having these two work together would be a fun change of pace. I do like a good team up!

M.O.D.O.K

“Oh mighty M.O.D.O.K.” He said. “We await your command.”

“Rise, my inferior subordinate.” M.O.D.O.K said. “There is much to be completed this day. Where is Maya Hansen?”

“I’m right here.” Maya said, entering the room. Josh clenched his fist.

“What is the progress on 3.0?” He asked her.

“3.0?” Acacia whispered. Josh shrugged.

“I was about to check now,” Maya said. “We have functional samples though, all that remains is human testing. Unfortunately the subjects escaped.”

“Huh, well whatever 3.0 is, she was gonna use it on us.” Josh said. “She makes me sick.”

“This is… unfortunate news.” M.O.D.O.K stopped. A red gem on his forehead lit up, and he scanned the room. “You fools! The subjects are in the room! Agents 49 and 55!”

“Please don’t be us.” Acacia said, looking down at the number 49 printed on her suit. All of the agents looked at them.

“Grab them!” Maya ordered. “Now! Don’t let them escape!”

“Run!” Josh shouted as he and Acacia made a break for it. Suddenly a group of agents were blasted from above. Josh and Acacia looked up to see Lightstream fly down, blasting the A.I.M agents.

“Eileen!” Acacia exclaimed.

“Where?” Josh asked, looking around. Acacia froze.

“I mean, Eileen! We… we have to find her now!”

“Right, let’s go!” They ran through the halls. M.O.D.O.K’s voice came on the intercom.

“Attention all: This is M.O.D.O.K, there are intruders in the base disguised as agents. Their numbers are 49 and 55. Find and destroy them!”

“Detain!” Maya’s voice corrected. M.O.D.O.K growled.

“Detain them.”

“Well at she doesn’t want to kill us.” Acacia said.

“No, she just wants to pump us full of 3.0, which will probably kill us!” Josh said.

“And to the intruders,” M.O.D.O.K continued. “I say this: I am M.O.D.O.K, the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing. I am your intellectual superior in every way. Attempting to outsmart, outwit, or outmaneuver me will only result in humiliating failure. Surrender now, and spare yourselves the humiliation.”

* * *

Yeah, I went there. M.O.D.O.K. I know, right! But honestly, you can't havee A.I.M without M.O.D.O.K, it's unheard of (-cough, cough- Iron Man 3)! The name of the episode, Only for Killing, was clearly inspired by everyone's favorite big headed baddie, and I'm glad to finally have this classic Marvel villain in the E.G.G-verse!
