Space For RENT In Latveria

EXT. New York Street- Night

Benny is finishing his conversation with Mark, Roger, Collins and Angel.

BENNY

You'll see… or you'll pack.

He leaves. Soon, a cloaked, masked figure emerges from the shadows. It is DR. DOOM!!

DR. DOOM

So, I understand you gentlemen are having difficulty with finances.

MARK

Yeah, our ex-best friend is threatening to kick us out of our apartment.

ROGER

And on Christmas Eve!

ANGEL

Honey, where did you get that dress?

DR. DOOM

It's not a dress it's a cloak. And I got it in… LATVERIA.

MARK

Where's Latveria?

DR. DOOM

It is my nation. I can make you gentlemen truly live for free. And you won't even have to shut down that protest I was hearing about.

COLLINS

Is this gonna be something freaky?

ANGEL

I'm down.

DR. DOOM

No, no, nothing like that. All you have to do is allow me to declare your apartment building soil of… LATVERIA! And you can live for free. In TRUE freedom!

ROGER

Sounds good to me.

MARK

Me too. What are we doing the rest of the night?

COLLINS

Life Support meeting.

ROGER

Nah, that's not for me.

MARK

I'll go if I can film.

ANGEL

Sure, honey.

Roger goes upstairs. The other three leave, leaving Doom behind.

DR. DOOM

Fools! Little do they know I have joined forces with Benny, giving him all the money he needs for his CyberArts studio! Soon, CyberArts will be as technologically advanced as my great nation of LATVERIA! And with this CyberArts in place, I SHALL RULE THE WORLD!!!

INT. Apartment

Roger is playing one song, trying to get some glory. There is a knock on the door.

ROGER

Yes?

It is Mimi.

MIMI

I need a light for my candle. Hey, who were you talking to downstairs?

ROGER

Oh, some guy who said that we could live for free if we allow our building to be declared soil of Latveria.

MIMI

Latveria? Oh my god, that was Dr. Doom! He's bad news!

ROGER

How do you know about him?

MIMI

He's the sworn enemy of the Fantastic Four. One of their members, Ben Grimm likes to go get hard at the Cat Scratch Club where I work. I dance.

ROGER

So, what should we do?

MIMI

Call in the Four, I guess.

EXT. The Streets

Angel, Collins and Mark are coming back when they encounter DOOM.

DR. DOOM

Oh, hey guys. Out this late?

COLLINS

Yeah, what are you still doing here?

DR. DOOM

Oh, you know, just figuring out where to put my flags and stuff.

Suddenly, he is attacked by the FANTASTIC FOUR! The fight is quite epic, but soon Benny pulls up in his Range Rover to put a stop to it.

BENNY

Hey, hey, hey! Fantastic Four, what are you doing? That's my main investor for CyberArts!

MARK

What? He was gonna give us free rent!

Roger and Mimi come outside.

ROGER

Don't trust him Mark, he's bad news!

REED RICHARDS

Go back to Latveria! Benny, I'll see to it that Tony Stark helps you with CyberArts if you just cut all ties with this guy.

DR. DOOM

Enough! I shall go back to Latveria!

He leaves. Reed Richards pulls out a radio.

REED RICHARDS

Stark, come in please.

Iron Man comes down from the sky.

IRON MAN

Right with you, Reed. I heard there was trouble, but I guess I'm too late.

REED RICHARDS

I'd like you to meet Benny. I'd consider it a personal favor if you went into business with him.

IRON MAN

No problem. Always happy to help a brother out.

TOM COLLINS

You got soul, Tony Stark.

IRON MAN

And who might you be?

TOM COLLINS

Friends call me Collins. Tom Collins.

IRON MAN

Hey, I'm addicted to you already.

Laughter.
