E.G.G Q&A: Episode 7

Updated on September 18, 2014


This Q&A contains full spoilers for E.G.G Episode 7: Extremis. If you have not yet read it, please click here to do so now.


No lights, no camera, just action as Josh and Acacia engage in an all out brawl with Julian and Tanner/Venom! Our heroes weren't fairing very well when all of a sudden... Eileen shows up! Wait, wasn't she dead? Apparently not, because Acacia finally tells Josh about what she did behind his back: Injecting Eileen with the experimental drug known only as Extremis! Eileen showcases some new powers, and just as things are heating up, Julian gets a transmission from none other than Dr. Doom himself! Doom, informing Julian that he has failed, blows the power plant. Acacia leaves a symbiotless Tanner to un-dig himself and Julian helps Josh out of the wreck, saying he never meant for any of it to happen, then vanishes before Josh can delve in any further. Eileen then, using her new powers, lifts Mother Egg back into the air, and they all take a deep breath of victory!


Finally! Thank you to Hub user snerfu (apparently from Madurai, India) for leaving a comment! My very first one! Now I can finally address something that an actual person has to say! So, without further adieu:

snerfu writes: "Great story, voted up."

Well, snerfu, I'm very pleased you liked Episode 7! I try my hardest to make every episode enjoyable for everybody, and the fact that you liked it makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. But if you thought that was great, just wait until next episode, because it will blow you away my friend!

And Now...

Alright, so that was the only comment, but remember people, leave questions and comments so I can give you a shout out here in my Q&A! Cool, so here we go with the highlights of the episode.

Snikt Claws!

“You may not be the same guy in the suit,” she said, pulling two gloves onto her arms. “But I know one guy that that can beat the living garbage out of you.” And with a snikt, three claws emerged from each of the gloves.

* * *

One word: Awesome! So, for those of you who don't read comics, when Wolverine (you know, Wolverine right? X-Men, Hugh Jackman, yeah) pops his claws out, the resounding sound effect is the word snikt. If you think about it, it kind of fits. Now, in case you forgot, E.G.G stands for Experimental Government Gadgets. They make weapons and other cool stuff for S.H.I.E.L.D, mostly based off of other superheroes in the Marvel Universe. The Snikt Claws are a pair of gloves equipped with three long metal blades in each. Now, the likelihood of them being made of Adamantium, the stuff Wolverine's claws are made of, is very small. But nonetheless, The Snkit Claws do a pretty effective job. And one more thing, the line about a different guy in the suit and the one guy that can beat the garbage out of him, well Wolverine has gone up against Venom, Eddie Brock, multiple times in the past. Multiple times.

Multiple Times!
Multiple Times!

Eileen's New Powers

“This is for hurting my friends.” She said, as she punched Julian across the room. Josh’s jaw dropped. Eileen walked over to him as he was recovering from the hit. “This is for Mother Egg!” She shouted, as she held out her hand and shot out bolts of lightning, electrocuting Julian. Josh’s knees got weak. “And this is for KILLING ME!” She screamed, as she breathed fire out of her mouth. Josh’s eyes rolled to the back of his head, and he fainted.

* * *

Okay, so I know a good sum of you have seen Iron Man 3, and what the Extremis does to people. Well, it's a bit different in the comics, and I wrote this before Iron Man 3 came out, so let me explain. In the comics, Extremis is a drug that doesn't just enter your system, it rewrites your biology, you're literally recreated, which is how it brought Eileen back from the dead. You also get a grab bag of new powers, such as super strength, the ability to shoot lightning from your hands, and fire breath! Also, when Iron Man used Extremis on himself, he gained the ability to sort of control technology and linked himself with his armor. That power was exclusive to Iron Man, but I gave it to Eileen because, well, you'll find out.

Doctor Doom

Julian slammed into the wall and fell to the ground. Suddenly his gauntlet began to beep. He pressed a button to reveal the image of Doctor Victor von Doom.

“Have you done as I asked?” Dr. Doom questioned.

“Yeah, Mother Egg’s grounded…” Julian weakly managed.

“And the director.” Doom demanded.

“Workin’ on that…” Julian replied, standing up.

“If you have not done it by now, you will not succeed any time soon. Luckily Doom takes precautions.”

“What are you…”

“The entire facility is going to explode in less than a minute.”

“What! But you can’t!”

“Consider it your punishment for failing Doom.” With that, the transmission ended.

“No, you can’t! Doom! Doom!” Julian shouted in vain. Eileen approached.

“I’m not finished with you yet.” She said, grabbing him by the collar.

“Hold up a minute! The whole place is gonna…” At that moment, a series of explosives went off and the entire power plant came crashing down around them.

* * *

Well that was spine chilling. And also, very revealing. Now we know that Julian and Tanner indeed work for the Latverian dictator himself, Dr. Doom! And we also know that Doom isn't getting boss of the year anytime soon, seeing as how he blew up the facility with two of his own henchmen inside! But, if you didn't piece together the whole 'agents of doom' thing, now you know. The real question is, what does this mean? Why would Dr. Doom want to take down E.G.G? How did he even figure out about E.G.G? Well, I wish I could tell you, I really do, but you're just going to have to wait and see! There are more twists, turns, and surprises in store, so buckle up and prepare to ride!

Next Episode

A mind boggling episode of E.G.G! A strange visitor from the future has come, but what are his intentions? And what links does he have with Josh's son? Wait, did you say Josh's son! All of these questions are answered in the most futuristic E.G.G yet! So make sure to tune in tomorrow, September 19, and read E.G.G Episode 8: 2099!

Are you excited for Episode 8?
