Because nobody could warn them against it, the Roamers have decided to see how effectively they can bring down an old skyscraper... after making sure nobody is squatting inside.
"Huh. I assumed- twins- doubled up on powers." Shrug. "I can be gaffer and cameraman mostly at the same time as fighting. It will be tough but I am not afraid to make sacrifices for my art."
Simone can't resist a science lecture. "Tabby and Zeke are fraternal. They don't share any more genes than you would with a random sibling."
"Well, that explains it. Anyway! Let's get on with the movie!" Flicker, he attached a car battery to the spotlight. "Lights!" Flicker, he messes with the camera, "Camera! Places everybody, argue and then fight in the streets! After a while we move inside and smash some walls and stuff."
They move into position. "Fools! You could never make use of the professor's death engine!"
"It is ours by right, usurpers!"
Flickerflickercameraflicker- "You would put it to crueler use than we ever could, mad Inventor. It's our duty to keep the device in good hands."
"Suffer not the crab-people to live!"
"CUT! No no, crab people? What? That's not relevant. Movie's got to have conservation of detail. Everything we say has to do something."
"The idea is we want to murder the crap-people and they're crab-sympathizers!"
Kronos does a dramatic sigh. "Sure fine whatever not like I'm paying you lot, we'll let this movie be a random monstrosity instead of a carefully crafted story..." He turns the camera back on.
"Okay, okay, what do you suggest?"
"No no no you're fine, we'll roll with it. Spontanaeity can work."
"Where'd you learn so much about film theory? Not many cinemas still running in burnt out cities."
"I find a lot of random things. Books and old VHS tapes. People's notes and paperwork on things. Lampshades hanging randomly."
"The crab-people have as much a right to live in peace as any sentient being!"
"-Ooh now draw your weapon and brandish it dramatically!"
"We will defend them. Our honor will allow nothing else!"
Corundum telekinetically summons a variety of dull grey, scary looking implements.
Simone draws a slapped together ray gun.
"That thing have a 'stun' setting? I can maybe stop bad injuries from happening, power secret, but it's annoying to do and I'd rather not do it more than like half a dozen times in one day."
"It affects the brain. Got it set to 'tickle'."
"Let the battle resume!"
He flickers around the battlefield dramatically, steadily approaching the other team.
No he's not. He's still filming in between flickers, after all. But he hangs out off to the side obligingly, for now.
Then makes a dramatic re-entrance and tries to knock away Simone's ray gun!
She gets a shot off.
