Benny Masterson was staring lazily out the plane window at the brightly lit cloudscape beyond when Bob The Pure and Just zoomed into view, pursued by the Cucumber Villain.
Masterson’s face lit up. He had a large collection of comics, posters, and other Bob the Pure and Just memoriabilia, and he had never seen his hero so close.
One of the Cucumber Villain’s dark green, stripey missiles missed Bob the Pure and Just and hit the plane dead center. Masterson was flung back hard against his seat as his half of the plane spun out of control. He had a moment to experience the shocking cold of the atmosphere this high up, before hypoxia and death followed quickly on each other’s heels.
