We begin with the stories of our heroes before they were heroes…
E.K.O.: E.K.O’s dad was a master samurai. He taught E.K.O martial arts and the ways of the warrior in their mountain shrine. E.K.O was forbidden to reveal his identity so wore glasses all the time and abbreviated his name from Edward-Kyle Olsen to simply E.K.O.
Brendan Dore: Brendan’s dad was one Captain James Dore, captain of the largest battle ship in the world. Brendan was fascinated by the ship and always went to war with his dad. They spent their spare time together shooting down enemy planes with the ship’s Anti-Air missile launcher.
Space Gypsy: SG’s family worked on a farm which was located on Mars. The whole family suffered from crazy-red-hair disease, thus causing them to all have crazy-red-hair. SG was too embarrassed to go to school so his dad bought him a special turban which soon became his trademark.
Bobafett2: BF2 was the son of the notorious bounty hunter, Boba Fett (1). BF2 loved riding in Slave 1 with his dad. BF2 controlled the ship’s guns and was a master shot. He could take down an enemy fighter from 270 parsecs away! BF1 was going on an important mission one day and new that he may not come back, so gave his son his helmet.
George G.: (errrrrrr, hmmmmmm. What exciting story can you make out of “George G.”. I really should have chosen a more exciting name…) George lived in a skip behind a post office with his dad who was a pathetic excuse for a policeman.
Dad: I think I forget something but I can’t quite but my finger on it…
The 5 heroes were brought together by a dream that they all had at the same time. In which, a dark horse galloped across an ever-going field. Sat astride it was the great spirit of the horse: a mysterious bearded figure who beamed green light out of his eyes.
Spirit: Listen to me! I am the spirit of the Dark Horse and I bring you great powers! With great powers come great responsibilities. If you are far too lazy to have responsibilities then do not except my offer. You can do that by staying asleep, you great pig.
And with that, the 5 heroes bolted up in their beds and – wait a second, Gypsy?! E.K.O.?! Why are you-, what are you-, oh I just won’t ask…
The 5 started to change, powers came to them and costumes appeared from nowhere.
The Dark E.K.O.: He’s skilled archer who never misses a shot. With a mysterious hood, a long-bow and a quiver with an ever-lasting amount of arrows in he’s a great threat to enemies.
Battleship Brendan: A half-man half-battleship. With his mechanical heart and bazooka-arm, he’ll blow you to smithereens whist under the sea using his retractable propeller feet.
The Hypno-Gypso: He can read your mind, move objects without touching them and can produce purple energy from his hands. And never look into his eyes, you’ll regret it!
BF2, the Walking Armoury: You name a weapon, Boba’s got it strapped on him somewhere! He’s packed out with rifles, pistols, grenades, katanas and cutlasses.
Er, George! : The very un-interesting George didn’t get any powers, just the legs, the body, the wings and the head of an ostrich.
The rest of the team felt sorry for George so gave him a cape and let him live in their secret underground lair.
The team got called out on a mission to defeat some evil aqua-monsters which were wading through the sea.
They decided to leave George at the lair because he couldn’t swim and he was afraid of Gunguns. He was very upset.
The team took down the aqua-monsters but they kept on getting back up.
Then, a huge snake-like beast emerged from the water.
The Hypno-Gypso and Battleship Brendan decided they would try and hold the snake back while the others tried to take it down.
Even with their great powers the team could not defeat the aqua-monsters.
“If only someone could help us, our powers are too weak!”
With that, the noise of an outboard motor roared as George arrived on a dingy. He was wearing a cool helmet and had a variety of machine guns strapped to his sides.
The team were very impressed with George and decided to let him join them.
“Team Dark Horse, away!”
I hoped you enjoyed it and I hope I didn’t offend any of my team mates.
DISCLAIMER: there is no such disease as crazy-red-hair disease, as far as I know…
And also, just to let you know, Phipson is not my dad, as far as I know…
