Dear Cy-Kill, Do you believe in magic?

Cy-Kill: There was a time that I would have called you a fool for asking me a question such as that, but I have seen many strange things in my years: a blind child who can see the future, a staff that can disable even a Zod, a human who can levitate and deflect energy blasts thanks to statues of his ancestors. Why, just a few months before I found myself transported away from Level 1, Leader-1's Command Center shot down my Thruster on the planet Arcanus IX. As Cop-Tur and Vamp attempted to repair the damage, I sent Crasher out on a scouting mission to ensure that there would be no unpleasant surprises until we were ready to launch into space again.

While on patrol, she discovered two magicians terrorizing a local village with magic spells. They were turning peasants into animals, plants, and statues; teleporting them to the top of trees and flagpoles; levitating them so they were stuck in mid-air; even blasting them to the ground with concussive force. They called themselves Mumbo and Jumbo, and Crasher, being an excellent officer, immediately recognized the potential for an alliance. She summoned me, and I convinced the two sorcerers that they were wasting their considerable talents here on Arcanus IX, spinning yarns of the vast wealth of GoBotron. Their magic fixed my Thruster in an eyeblink, and we set off to show those Guardians what-for!

It was glorious! The Guardians didn't know what hit them. Soon I had conjured a medieval-style castle in the heart of GoBotolis, with Leader-1 bewitched into thinking himself my court jester, and Turbo and Small Foot transmuted into a horse and a cow and looked after in a barn by Nick, the stableboy.

Unfortunately, Scooter had tracked the our trajectory back to Arcanus IX. He, A.J., and Spay-C made their way there and recruited two of the local wizards, the brother and sister team of Hocus and Pocus. They returned, battling my allies to a standstill, allowing Leader-1 and his flunkies to break the spells. Realizing a lost cause, I abandoned my allies--who, truth be told, were starting to get on my nerves with their sing-song way of finishing each other's sentences--to their fates. Mumbo and Jumbo were no match for Hocus and Pocus, backed up by the entire Guardian institution. Spay-C flew them back to Arcanus IX in iron chains, no doubt lecturing them the whole time.

Mathew Robert Ignash: Is that truly magic though, or just science we don't understand? Still, do you have a picture of Jester-1? That must be a sight to see!

Cy-Kill: Believe you me, the annoying do gooder had never looked better.

Christopher Colgin: What did Nick look like as a stable boy?

Cy-Kill: A significant improvement over his usual anemic fashion choices.
