ForwardSo this comic-script came to be while reading a bit about Marissa Faireborn on the Transformers Wiki and also the Kiss Player's storyline... I found myself surprised by some of what I read about Kiss Player's which I had written off from the start as a perverted mess. The actual storyline was interesting in a Crisis on Infinite Earths sort of way... however, it was the un-used ideas that interested me.
It's been years since I've written something in the fanfic-vein, I've been mostly trying to work on my own original stories. But what I read about Marissa just captivated me so much.
The Mangaka of Kiss originally wanted Marissa to be ex-EDC (to match her G1 origin), but also wanted her to join Cobra instead of the random anti-gov organization she was a part of in the actual comic... that's why she was given battle armor for the first issue that was similar to the Baroness'. Anyway this is my own take on the story of Marissa, and the Optimus Prime romance from Kiss Players... it may go in a similar direction in the end. It may not. It's written in comic book form, because I'd love to see an american comic done on this by IDW or someone... but I doubt I'll ever see anything like that, maybe a fan artist can help me make a doujin?
GI Joe and the Transformers Present: Marissa Faireborn
caption: 4 Months prior to the events detailed in Transformers: The Movie.
Narration: My name is Marrisa Faireborn, the daughter of Flint and Lady Jaye of the original GI Joe team, and today is the day I graduate at the top of my class at the EDC academy; the day I've been waiting for my entire life... but today is also the day I've been dreading for many months.
-Marissa sits alone in the EDC Academy mess hall drinking a cup of coffee-
Cadet: Marissa, there you are; I've been looking all over for you. Can I have a moment of you time?
Marissa: Sure Tim, what's up?
Cadet: Well Marissa, todays the day we graduate and we'll probably get different posts you being top of the class and all, and myself not so much. So I thought I'd never get another chance to tell you this but I really like you.
Marissa: Oh, well I'm flattered...
Marissa: But, I just don't want to date anyone, especially someone in the army. Both my parents are military, and I had a very lonely childhood; they were never there for me, always off trying to save the world from Cobra. I just don't want to end up in that kind of situation, raising a kid who's going to be lonely and bitter, so I've just decided to swear off romance all together. Besides *sigh* there's someone in my life I've been in love with for years.
Cadet: Let me guess, the tall, dark and handsome type?
Marissa: *laughs* Tall for sure, it's Optimus Prime.
-the young cadet spits his own drink up-
Cadet: Marissa! You don't need to make fun of me; if you don't like me you should just say so, not make stuff like that up... Optimus Prime!
Narration: It's true though, Prime's always been there for me, ever since that day on my sixth Birthday.
-cut to scene of Marissa talking to a nany in the hallway of a well furnished house-
Marissa: Where's Daddy and Mommy?
Nany: Marissa, you're parents are very important people they have a lot of work to do; they'd love to be here for you but they're making sure you and everyone else is safe. Come let's go and have some Birthday cake with your friends.
-a white metalic hand smashes through the roof and grabs Marissa-
Megatron: You just lied to that young girl; you told her she was safe, but no one is safe from Megatron!
*a diesel engine pulls up in front of Megatron and transforms to reveal Optimus Prime*
Optimus: So our sources was accurate; you are after the children of GI Joe team members, why Megatron?
Megatron: Bah, these pathetic carbon forms mean no more to me then any others. I've made a deal with Cobra, they have something I want Prime, something that will allow me to end you and your Autobots once and for all. But you're not going to stop me right now are you? Cause I'll crush this child if you come any closer. Cobra Commander may want her alive, but I'll make sure the Decepticon cause gets what it needs; one way or another.
-prime drops his gun-
Optimus: You win Megatron; just don't harm the human.
Megatron: -laughs- You're pathetic compassion is your weakness Prime. -Megatron starts to fly away Marissa in hand-
Optimus: Oh no you don't Megatron! -Optimus leaps onto Megtron's back forcing his hand open and catching Marissa before she falls-
Megatron: You fool Prime! Do you really think you can save her with such a maneuver? Now I'll just have to tare you apart sooner then later, then with the relic Cobra Commander is giving me I'll be able to reconquer and revitalize Cybertron, but you won't be alive to see it. -Megatron starts firing from his cannon-
-Optimus uses his body to shield Marissa from the shots, taking the full impact-
Megatron: You're finished prime
Lady Jaye: Not today he's not Megatron.
-Lady Jaye, being carried by Bumblebee can be scene down the street from there are two GI Joe Awe Strikers (one of which has Flint manning the gun), and the Autobots Jetfire and Warpath with them, all guns trained on Megatron-
Lady Jaye: You have 5 seconds to withdraw before we open fire, I don't see any other decepticons, do you think you can handle both us and Prime alone?
-Megatron Freezes for a few moments over prime, then withdraws and flies off-
-Bumblebee lets Jaye down, and she and Flint run towards their daughter who clinging to Optimus' hand still on the ground from when he assume a position to shield her-
Flint: Marissa, thank god your safe!
Jaye: We were so worried about you baby-girl but you're okay now.
Marissa: You don't care about me, you're never around I love Optomi, not you. I hate you!
Optimus: I'm sure she doesn't mean that, Lady Jaye, Flint... you don't deserve it.
Flint: Maybe we do Optimus.
Narration: Since then because of my parents work, and because of security concerns I've often been left in the care of the Autobots, and I've grown closer and closer to Prime. Unfortunately the time we can spend together has been cut short over the past few years, with my classes and the ongoing war against Megatron. Whatever Cobra Commander gave him for doing his dirty work, did tip the scales in Megatron's favor and he was able to to take control of Cybertron. Optimus has been off planet often planning some secrete liberation plan. Today will be the last day he's on Earth before he totally devotes himself to the invasion; I don't know if the EDC is involved but maybe I can be there with him when the time comes.
-Marissa walks outside the EDC building to the outdoor stage where the graduation is being held. Before joining the precession and assuming proper military discipline, she spots the red cab that is Optimus at the top of a hill overlooking the stage she waves. Her parents who are directly bellow in the seats mistake this as a gesture towards them and wave back-
-On the podium Hitoshizuku Amaō, Commander in the EDC and officer in charge of the academy stands before the crowd delivering a speech-
Amao: The Earth Defense Command as you know was founded 10 years ago, by the late General Nathaniel Faireborn an accomplished soldier who recognized the need to create an international team to combat Cybertronian threats. His plan was submitted to the UN Security council and was unanimously accepted. The EDC has been granted access by the Autobots to Cybertronian technology on the understanding that it will only be used in three situations: off-Earth in joint projects by the international community, to police the usage of Cybertronian technology should it fall into the wrong hands on Earth, and most importantly to fight Cybertronian and extraterrestrial menaces. This makes the EDC the most powerful fighting force in human history, it also places a huge burden on the men and women who serve in that force. I'll now hand the podium over to the commander of Autobot city and the liaison for the Cybertronian forces of the EDC, Ultra Magnus. Commander Magnus if you would...
Magnus: Thank you Commander, friends it is both an honor and a privilege for an Autobot soldier to be selected to work as closely with the governments of the world as I have been. We unwittingly brought our war to your planet many years ago, and we are still trying to make amends for that. You've all seen how deadly our enemy the Decepticons are, and how equally terrifying our technology can be when it has been acquired by those who would misuse it. It's for that reason that we must place stringent limits on how it is used, and as Commander Amao said, that is the great burden that the men and women who will be accepting their EDC posts today must accept. But I have no doubt they will handle that burden with the honor and dignity that I've seen displayed in Earth's finest soldiers. Please come forward and accept your diplomas, rank bars and deployment orders.
-the projection screen behind Magnus flickers blank then is replaced by the masked visage of the Cobra Commander-
Cobra Commander: Not so fast, you've heard this alien and that greedy military scientist tell you how Cybertronian technology must be kept out of the wrong hands...
Mao: Cut that feed
Tech: We Can't
Flint -pulling out his cellphone-: Duke this is Flint, you saw the broadcast right? What kind of support's coming our way
Cobra Commander: What they mean is that it must be kept out of the hands of normal everyday people. The power elite are setting the world back 50 years or more, just so they can make themselves superior and take way more of your freedoms. You hear them talking about burdens and hardships, the only hardship they have is figuring out which of your rights to trample on next. This is not what Cobra offers or what the Decepticons offer; make no mistake now they have taken back the homeland that rightfully belongs to them the Decepticons will not bother us. Rather it is the aliens in our midst the ones who claim to be our friends we must truly fear. They are not allies of the human race, they are merely self serving bureaucrats appeasing those in power and bringing down the little man. Cobra will deal with these false friends and bring humanity to it's true destiny in the stars. COBRA!
