Dear Cy-Kill, If you could clone any of your subordinates who would you choose?
Cy-Kill: The benefit of hindsight tells me that Fitor or Crasher would be ideal candidates. Would that I had such insight when we "acquired" UNECOM's Duplicator Beam. A variation on the Astro-Beam, it allowed me to create duplicates of anyone or anything for forty-eight hours. I created a second team of my Thruster's crew and sent them to pin down the defenders of GoBotron Fortress, while I lead an assault on GoBotolis. A brilliant plan, or so I though, until the other Cy-Kill went rogue!
It seemed he was none too pleased about his impending expiration date. He broke off his attack, which allowed Leader-1 and his cohorts to drive us off. Cy-Kill Prime and his team instead captured Professor von Joy. Desperate to survive, they concocted the theory that, if they reversed the polarity of the Duplicator Beam, they could shift the evanescence effect from him to me! They boarded my Thruster while we were licking our wounds and blasted us into stupefaction.Embarrassingly enough, we were rescued by Leader-1 and his team. When Bullseye and Turbo passed us in our cells, I was able to convince them that we had as much to lose from Cy-Kill Prime as the Guardians did. They freed the four of us, and we blasted onto the Thruster's bridge. Each of us engaged with our counterpart, while Bullseye grabbed the Duplicator Beam and Turbo freed Von Joy. Cy-Kill Prime broke free of my grip and leaped into the air, pursuing Bullseye. He forced the B-1 Lancer to crash land, but Leader-1 and Scooter were not far behind. Leader-1 kept Cy-Kill Prime occupied while Scooter fiddled with the beam. I used his absence to blast the knockoff Cop-Tur, Crasher, and Spoons. My team, carrying our disabled duplicates, arrived to see Leader-1 and Cy-Kill Prime grappling. I was sorely tempted to blast Leader-1, but in the end decided he was far less dangerous than another me. I shot Cy-Kill Prime in the back, and he collapsed. Scooter finished his modifications and dematerialized our conquered counterfeits. I had no more taste for battle and lead my men in a dignified withdrawal.
