"Lead me to Black," said Voldemort.
The snake glided away; Voldemort followed it through muggle London to a hotel near the Leaky Cauldron, up the stairs, said "Alohomora!" to open the door.
The occupant wore muggle clothes, and seemed surprised at the intrusion. "Did you think this disguise would fool me, Black? Avada Kedavra!"
Black fell to the floor, Voldemort turned to leave. Behind him two rings of greenish light played over the body.
The snake hissed, too late, as Black sat up and shot Voldemort in the back.
"THIS IS THE VOICE OF THE MYSTERONS. YOUR WIZARD HAS FAILED..."
Author's note: The villain in most episodes of the British TV series Captain Scarlet was Captain Black, a reanimated secret agent controlled by the Mysterons, Martian super-intelligences with the power of "Retro-Metabolism," reanimating or replicating anything that had been destroyed. A new CGI-animated version of the series launches next week.
