Super Fly

Monty Fluttering was a normal fly. He was the proud father of 300 larvae and lived a happy, middle-class, house fly life. He was already one-month-old and looking forward to retirement. That was, of course, until he flew into Humphrey Laboratories. Monty had always been a particularly curious fly. Unlike his friends who liked to eat from open trash cans or off of picnic tables, Monty liked to find food in unusual places, like on the bristles of a broom. One day, he decided to check out the Laboratory--a dark building that most of the flies thought was haunted. He snuck in through an open window and was so excited to see a beautiful ham and cheese sandwich sitting on a metal cart. For a split second, he noticed that the sandwich was kind of glowing green, but he thought nothing of it as he rubbed his forelegs together before digging in. The next morning, Monty awoke with a horrible headache. "I think I ate too much," he thought aloud. Then he went to the bathroom, looked into the mirror, and was shocked to discover...

that his wings had turned dark orange, his muscles were the size of his head, and his body had turned snow white. Then he had a craving for pancakes, so he decided to go to the diner to get some. Strangely, he got there in five seconds. Monty found out he had superpowers!

"I am Super Fly, here to defend the world of flies and, more importantly, defeat The Swatter!" Monty declared. Then he buzzed around the diner, hunting down his pancakes. "Halt!" a deep voice rumbled. Super Fly turned to see who it was. The voice belonged to none other than his worst enemy, The Swatter himself. The Swatter raised itself up and came crashing down...

then KABOOM! Super Fly landed in the trashcan. He hates trashcans! "Gross!" he yelled. The Swatter pulled Super Fly out of the trash can to see if he was dead. Super Fly pretended to be dead and fell to the bottom of the trash can. "Ha! Another Superhero dead! My work is done here!" the Swatter said. "I gotta' get out of here!" Super Fly thought to himself. All of a sudden

he heard scrambling beside him. He looked down and saw a little mouse crawling out of a banana peel. "Hey, dude! Whassup?" the mouse said. He swaggered over to Super Fly on his hind legs. Super Fly grimaced and managed to get up. "So, the Swatter's your enemy too, huh?" said the mouse. "By the way, I'm Super Mouse. And you are...?" Super Fly introduced himself. The two superheroes became friends and...

Super Fly picked up Super Mouse and flew out of the trash can, hoping to defeat Swatter. But, since he was in a diner, the aroma of pancakes pulled him towards the kitchen. As he and his newfound buddy pigged out, a shadow started to rise over them. The Super Team turned around to find Swatter!

"So, you thought you could fool me eh?" said the Swatter. "Swatter!" the Super Team said. "Bu..but how?" asked Super Mouse. "Well, it was pretty easy," said the Swatter. "I came back to the trash can to keep Super Fly as a souvenir in my trophy cabinet, but he wasn't there. Sooo I figured you would be dumb enough to come in here. And here we are." "You'll never defeat us!" said Super Fly. "Oh yeah?" said the Swatter. "Well then, let's find out."

Super Fly stretched to get ready to fight as The Swatter popped his fingers and tried to look tough. Then Swatter jumped up to attack the Super Team, but they blocked him. "Uhh!" yelled The Swatter as he got back up to try to attack them again. "Never!" yelled the Super Team as Swatter tried to crash onto them. They both lifted a leg and kicked Swatter in the stomach. KAPOW!!! ...went the swatter right into the trashcan!

Quickly, Super Mouse found a rotten cheese ball and splatterd it all over The Swatter. The cheese stuck Swatter to the bottom of the trash can. In good time the trash truck came, dumped Swatter in the truck, and took him away. Before they closed the back door, The Swatter's last words were, "I will be baaaaaaaaack!"

"Our job is done here." Super Mouse said, shaking paws with Super Fly. Super Fly grinned happily. "It sure is, pal. I'll fly you home." Super Fly clutched Super Mouse's paw and took off into the air, out the window. "Yeehaah!" they shouted together. "Mission completed!" THE END!
