Mwahahahahahaha, the sound of evil laughter; a strangely familiar sound
-at least it is for me. I am Gyro Man. I am a superhero from the planet Earth. Right now, I'm in a chase with a giant robot that has captured the Mayor of Toronto. Now, I am going to let the narrator handle it from here.
Gyro Man fired his laser cannon at the robot and swooped into save the Mayor.
Meanwhile at Area 52.3, the world leaders are having a meeting. Suddenly, a UFO (which was later an IFO) landed. The world leaders just stared at it until it opened up. A strange race of slugs came out and the biggest one said,“We come in peace”
“Really?” said the leader of Canada.
“Nope,” said the slug as he swallowed him whole.
The world leaders ran screaming as the slugs ate them one by one. One of the world leaders pushed the button that calls Gyro Man. Gyro Man flew as fast as he could, but by the time he got there, there were no world leaders left. He started fighting the slugs, but they were too powerful and sent him flying through a wall.
Gyro Man went to the nearest town (which was his home town). He flew through the town yelling, “The slugs are coming! Run, run for your life!”
A man named Glynn said, “What are slugs going to do? Ha, ha, ha, ha! ” Then, the slugs arrived. They swarmed Glynn as he screamed, “No, no, NOOOOOOOOOO! ”
Gyro Man flew from city to city trying to warn people of the slugs, but no one took him seriously. At every city, he fought them, but they were too powerful. Gyro Man soon was the last human on earth. The slugs created cities made of crystal and slime. Gyro Man went underground to plan an attack on the slugs. He remembered that slugs hate salt, so he used this to his advantage.
Gyro Man came up from under the slug capital of earth. He started fighting the slugs with a saltshaker. It weakened them, so that he could punch them out. He made his way up to the Mama slug's lair. The Mama slug was the biggest slug he had ever seen. He threw the entire saltshaker at her but it didn't do anything to her.
#8220;You will never defeat us, the slugs from planet Hargo!” bellowed the Mama slug as she whacked him through a wall!
When Gyro Man came to, he was strapped to a rocket. The slugs were preparing to launch Gyro Man to the third moon of planet Hargo, which was covered in dense jungle and ferocious beasts.
Gyro Man struggled to escape but the ropes were too strong, even compared to his strength. He heard the numbers count down, five, four, three, two, and then one.
The slugs thought that would be the end of Gyro Man, but they didn't know that Gyro Man could breathe in space. Space was surprisingly dark, even with all the stars and the sun. It took hours to reach the third moon of planet Hargo.
When the rocket hit the surface of the moon he appeared to be in a volcanic area. Some lava flowed by, cutting the rope. Gyro Man got up and started walking around.
Suddenly, he felt the ground shake as the rock he was standing on got up and formed a monstrous creature made of molten rock which tossed him aside.
The creature flung lava at Gyro Man. Gyro Man quickly countered with a laser he shot from his hand. The laser blasted the lava away and painfully pierced the molten skin of the creature. The creature made a loud screeching sound and then fell down dead. Gyro Man started to walk away, when the ground started violently shaking 100 times harder than when the creature came from the ground.
“Eruption!” yelled Gyro Man. At once, at least 60 creatures made of molten rock came out of the ground. Gyro Man decided it was better to run rather than fight.
Gyro Man was flying over a large lake, wondering how he would get back to Earth, when suddenly, a giant fish leaped out of the water and grabbed Gyro Man with his teeth and pulled him into the lake. Gyro Man could also breathe underwater, so the only pain he felt was the monster's teeth digging into him.
The fish pulled him down to the bottom. The fish spit him out at the bottom and then he was sucked into a cave with an air pocket in it. He started walking across the cave when he noticed a source of light at the end of a tunnel. He started following the tunnel when suddenly a tongue shot out just missing him. He looked at the source of the tongue and saw a gigantic frog. The tongue started to retract and Gyro man placed a small explosive on it. When the tongue finished retracting, the frog screamed, breathing smoke as it went to a pool of water and started drinking.
“He won't be bothering me anymore!” said Gyro Man as he reached the end of the tunnel.
Gyro Man ended up on the surface again, next to the lake. He was about to fly over the lake when he saw some movement from a large creature just under the surface so he thought he should go around.
Gyro man was walking up a mountain when he smelled something like a cross between burning compost and bird's eggs. In short, a disgusting smell. When Gyro Man reached the top of the mountain, he found the source of the smell. It was a creature similar to a Pteradon, except bigger and able to breathe fire. It was warming its eggs over a pile of flaming fruit remains.
Gyro man noticed a part of a rocket that was still intact. The rocket part must have come from a rocket that crashed on the moons' surface.
“If I can find all the parts I can build a new rocket to take me back to Earth.” Said Gyro Man, a little too loudly.
The Pteradon turned around and started sending flares into the air, shortly after a green Pteradon spitting out acidic saliva. The green one was more muscular and appeared to be male while the pinkish, red one seemed to be female. Before Gyro Man could react the green Pteradon coughed up a large ball of acid. Gyro Man leaped backwards to dodge the acid, only to have to dodge a stream of flame. Gyro Man grabbed the rocket part and quickly flew off. Gyro Man picked a spot without any creatures around to store the part.
Gyro Man decided that he would first search the places he had already been to. He found one part hanging over a volcano and one in that underwater cave that was at the bottom of that lake.
Gyro Man was searching for another rocket part when the ground under him shattered and he fell into a cave. When he woke up he was surrounded by toxic gasses. Gyro Man held his breath and scanned the area. He noticed a body of water and leaped into it. He took deep breaths and looked around. He noticed a rocket engine and dove deep down to reach it, when a large sea monster swam up showing its teeth! Gyro Man dodged the mouth and blasted the monster with his arm cannon, but that didn't even phase it. So he grabbed the engine, put a fuel pack on it, and turned it on which sent him up through the roof.
Gyro Man landed by all the pieces he had collected, assembled the rocket, and departed for earth. On the way to Earth, Gyro Man noticed a nearby planet filled with snails. Gyro Man decided to land there to see if he could recruit some help. When he reached the planet surface he went to the leader of the snails and said, “I need help from your people to stop the slugs that have invaded my planet”.
“Hmm…” thought the lead snail when Gyro Man said,
“You can eat them” and the lead snail said, “ deal.”
The snail army and Gyro man went on their way to Earth. When they got to Earth, Gyro man formulated a plan.
Gyro Man flew up to the Mother slug and said,
“Hey, try and catch me” and then all the slugs started chasing him. Gyro Man flew to a large plain full of salty sand. When the slugs reached the plain the salt burned them and then the Mother slug yelled, “retreat!” and the slugs started squirming for their lives toward land without salt only to find a bunch of giant snails blocking the way.
A snail swallowed a slug whole and the coughed up the people that that Slug had eaten. So, the other snails started eating slugs and coughing people up until the last slug was devoured and the world leaders were spit out.
Just then a man with brown hair came up to Gyro Man and said,
“Congratulations on saving the Earth, my name is Brendan.”
“Who are you?” asked Gyro Man.
“Like I said, my name is Brendan, I am the random guy at the end of the story who comes to congratulate you. I'm off to go eat cake and what not.” said Brendan.
After this the snails returned home.
