Panel 1: Exterior panel in the upper atmosphere over the UNITED STATES. Taking up the majority of the panel is SPACESHIP ONE, which looks kind of like the WHITE HOUSE if it were a spaceship instead of a building.
An explosion has erupted from one end, though it’s not a powerful enough explosion to cripple the ship.
Panel 2: Interior panel, the bridge of SPACESHIP ONE – it’s effectively a cross between the oval office and the bridge of the starship ENTERPRISE (one or more of them – the best features of each, probably).
This panel focuses on FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT (FDR), who is sitting at an information computer terminal. He’s dressed in suit and has his head looking over his shoulder as he shouts to GEORGE WASHINGTON, who is off panel.
FDR: GENERAL WASHINGTON, we’ve been ambushed by CommuNazi Terrorists!
Panel 3: Panel shows the central portion of the bridge. GEORGE WASHINGTON, the captain of SPACESHIP ONE and the leader of everyone here, is seated in the captains chair – and the chair should most obviously be a captains chair that non-verbally communicates “this is where the captain sits” by the way it’s designed. ABRAHAM LINCOLN sits in a chair nearby in the XO’s chair. WASHINGTON is dressed in a Revolutionary era generals uniform but with somewhat modernized look to it, while LINCOLN is in a basic but appropriate suit and wearing a stovepipe hat.
In the background we can see DWIGHT D. EISNEHOWER standing at a control station for the ships security officer. He’s wearing a WWII era generals uniform.
EISENHOWER: CommuNazi Terrorists?
EISENHOWER (2): The worst kind of scum!
Panel 4: WASHINGTON has stood up from his chair as he gives orders. The way he’s standing and the angle of the panel should make him look as heroic, leader like, and presidential as possible.
WASHINGTON: We cannot let this stand!
WASHINGTON (2): Alert all teams!
WASHINGTON (3): And ROOSEVELT…
Panel 5: Close up on WASHINGTON’s face as he looks at FDR and gives one more order. The intention is the make this panel look as dramatic as possible and give the words as much weight as possible, signifying that what he’s saying means something big.
WASHINGTON: Tell TRUMAN to throw TEDDY ROOSEVELT at them!
(This was actually the second script I worked on for this week.
See, I knew I wanted to pick the President of the United States around the time of the election months ago, and when I first started thinking about it, Marvel was starting it's "Divided We Fall" thing in its Ultimate Comics, which led to a line of thinking involving Ultimate Carol Danvers becoming president and Tony building her a suit of armor which would be kind of a mix between Ultimate Iron Patriot and Ultimate Rescue. That WAS the script I was going to write for this week.
But in the time since then we've had both Ultimate Captain America become president AND the reveal that Ultimate Iron Patriot is on his way, so the two of them combined kind of scratched that idea entirely. So instead I came up with the fun little replacement script you see above.
Thing is, I also had a piece of concept art I was putting together to go with the script showing what I imagined President Danver's Iron Patriot One armor would look like, and since I already had it in the works by the time I needed to change my script, I figured I might as well get a presentable version of it together as a little bonus anyway, which is the main reason my script is a little late this week.
So here's a little bonus art that really doesn't have anything to do with my script from above, but does serve as a look at what could have been (and what was going to be) my script for this week:)
