Tipping the Scales
A restaurant. A waiter is taking orders from a group of 4 people. Enter robbers.
Robber: Don't be a hero!
Jason Baines: Okay, let me go get the money from this supply cupboard where we keep the thousands of money.
Mile-mannered Jason Baines steps into the cupboard. A man dressed in a snakeskin leotard with a domino mask comes out.
The Cobra: I am the mighty cobra!
Robber: Oh no!
Also Robber: The plan has gone awry!
The Cobra does snakey things and the robbers are knocked out? It's difficult to make this funny in text.
The Cobra: Very well, everyone! Back to my home planet, Indiatron!
The Cobra points out of the window and while everyone looks he goes into the supply cupboard. Mild-mannered Jason Baines exits the supply cupboard.
Jason Baines: Wow, the Cobra was here!
Later in a supermarket. The same robbers as before try to rob the supermarket. Mild-mannered Jason Baines ducks into a freezer and emerges as the Cobra!
The Cobra: Stop, evildoers!
Robber: Eat lead, cobra.
The Cobra does so and dies. Mild-mannered Bernard Hastings is nearby.
Bernard Hastings: I shall take up your mantle. I shall be the New Cobra!
Transforms. His costume is much edgier and by that I mean you can see his penis.
JUST THE TIP
New Cobra: Halt, evildoers.
Robber: Haha, he only has the powers of a cobra, we will dispatch him like we did the last one.
The robber shoots New Cobra, just like the first Cobra if you understand metaphors, you fucking hippy. Get a job.
New Cobra: You couldn't be more wrong! I have all the powers of not-cobra. I shall dispatch you by having lots of legs.
He does so.
New Cobra: Anyone want to thank me for my deed?
Child: Can you make your head fan out like a cobra?
New Cobra: Haha, no. But I can do the opposite!
New Cobra accidentally squashes his brain and dies.
I imagine everyone would glare at the child. I know I would if they'd just killed our one bright point of hope.
I think the rule is he has to take up his mantle.
