    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 16 “Earth 2 Crisis”(39) 1/8/2013


    Panel One


    Back on Earth 2 our intrepid explorers move at a modest speed toward whatever lies about a mile away. Can’t see any tall buildings from here even with magnification. Avenger is riding with Oscar on his ebony dino and flanked by Lola on her scarlet dinosaur.


    Panel Two


    They had been following a game trail and so far no predators on it, other dinos see them and steer clear. But that luck could change. They hear a low large growl, the people out side look in horror as a large white therapod with two scarlet fins on its snout eyes them with a hungry look.


    Panel Three


    The seismic sensors and 360 degree camera coverage of the Land Master tells them of the intruder. On a hunch Lavainge tells them to keep going toward the city perimeter. “It can’t be far, I thought we were in it already,” said Lavainge under her breath.

    Well I was right. That old coot is going to secretly cause a disaster then single handedly save them from it so that he can gain power and make people like him.

    Sorta reminds me of “Alley Oop” in the Thirties. Everyone was trying to defeat everyone else—the Wizer against Guz, Guz against the Wizer, Oop sorta in the middle, King Tunk stirring up trouble…

    That would be interesting if the Benders can finish what they start.

    “if” — that’s a given!

    Similar plot to Steerpike’s connivances in the first of the “Gormenghast” books.

    Once again the Benders are introducing a story with good potential. I expect they’ll blow it, just like the Earth Two story and the Maya story.

    If the Wiz is trying to make a batch of my Nuclear Coffee there, he may be in for a surprise


    Results on non-humans tend to be a bit unpredictable

    This plan, “create menace, save people, get adulation” always falls down on Step Two.

    Good Morning Benders and all. Wizer’s fantasizing on what his speech to the adoring fans will be when he stops the
    marauding dinosaurs, that will terrorize Moo if he has his way. He putting the cart before the dinosaur. He’ll need a
    good game plan. It will be much easier to get the dinosaurs
    out of control than to calm them down. A screwup in the making. In the Dinotopia miniseries a crystal was used to control dinosaurs.

    There is no potential for a good story. Character’s actions require motivation and there is none here. Carole hasn’t established that the Wizer isn’t appreciated. The so-called “party” started with Opp and Foozie handing out balls. Nobody was invited to anything, and the Wizer should not have felt slighted. Then his reaction and idea that he could control the minds of dinosaurs – really contrived and plain dumb.
    I want Alley Oop, the real Oop, back. It’s way past time to dump the Benders.
