Cast of Characters 
 The Dominator 

Splash, Page 1 - Right 2/6 

Full page shot.  Full bleed.  Debris of battle all around, lots of rubble.  Pendulum, Raid, Harlot and Hole are on the ground (and need not be shown; might see arm or leg out from under debris), a good bit of blood.  Superion should be down, staggered, trying to pull himself together.  Afterglow should be comforting/helping Superion, but looking at Dominator defiantly, arms around Superion, arched back, thrusting breasts.  Dominator is preparing for final coup d'grace.  Mosque is coming at him, from behind, in a berserker attack. Mosque is pretty beat up. 

Dominator:              Now ends your interference, Superion.  This time you taste final death! 

                               Then I will finish off the rest of Team BloodSCREAM! 

Afterglow:              Blow it out your tailpipe, Dominator! 

Superion:               *kaff* -- just need -- *kaff* -- a second -- Afterglow -- *kaff* 

                              -- then I'll shove that Blasterrod down his throat! 

Mosque:                HRARRH!
