Sinister Six In:
The Sinister Seven!?
As you may or may not know, this special edition epilogue
is part of a special "crossover" aptly called "The Ol'
Switcheroo"! What is the premise of this, you ask? Well,
Gauntlet, Gary, and Ben decided it would be fun and
exciting to write each other's teams! Now, this does
not mean that this will be some huge crossover like
Year of the Fox or Tale of Two Teams. This is more like
one of Gauntlet's phony crossovers where a crossover
is promised, but not really done. That being said, enjoy
the story as it is told by Gauntlet of the Mechanical
Narrator: Our story begins with the Sinister Six battling their
foe City Garage!
Garage: Mwa-ha-hah! With my new power-grabber machine
I will suck all your powers and use them against you!
Garage blasts the six with their weaknesses!)
Tim: But ... how!? Your not exactly the brains, Garage!
Garage: "NOT THE BRAINS!?" I'LL SHOW YOU WHO'S "NOT
THE BRAINS!!" HOW DARE YOU IMPLY I AM NOT SMART ENOUGH
TO MAKE SOMETHING LIKE THIS!!!
three months ago!*
Narrator: City Garage is walking down the abandoned warehouse
district when he is hit on the head with a strange device!
Wily (heard from inside the building): Useless piece of trash!
It'll never work right!
Garage (thought): Hmmmm. You know, with a little
work, this may actually work!
Narrator: And so, City Garage sent it to Radio Shack and it was
repaired! And now, back to the story....
Garage: You'll never beat me again!!
Andon: All our powers are being drained! Even our power of
Scott: We can fly!?
Andon: Well, we could before....
Scott: Since when can we fly?? Does that even make sense??
Gary: It makes perfect sense.
IRA: That's funny. I never thought we could fly.
Gary: Well, we can.
Tim: I don't remember us ever flying.
Scott: Hey, if we could fly before, then why do we need teleporters!?
Garage: Stop all this talking! Your confusing the
Hell outta me!
IRA: Well ... it looks like ... we're done for this Time!
Someone: Not true fellow Sinister Six members! I shall dispatch
this heinous villain and free you all! Since we're both
on the Sinister Six!!
hit City Garage's device destroying it! The energies
then go back to the Sinister Six!)
Garage: DAMN YOU TO HELL RADIO SHACK! THE NINETY
DAYS ON MY WARRANTY JUST EXPIRED YESTERDAY!
Jason: Do tell.
Garage: Um. What if I just say I'm really sorry,
would you just let me go?
Tim: (punches City Garage up into the air and out of sight!)
Andon: That was very unnecessary, Tim.
Tim: Yeah, well, that twit got on my nerves.
Gary: Good job on those fireballs, IRA!
IRA: That wasn't me, bud!
Gary: Then maybe MD?
Someone: It was I! TORCHMAN!!
The Six: TORCHMAN!?!?
Torchman: Indeed! We Sinister-Sixers must stay together!
Scott: Just what are you trying to pull here, Torch!?
Tim: Yeah, your as much a part of this team as Super Chaos
O'Neil: Sinister Six! What's going on?? Is Torchman
really a new member?
Tim: Actually -
Torchman: Yeah I am a new member. I have been helping them in
secret all this time. Infiltrating the evil armies and
getting key information to save the day.
IRA: YOU ARE -
Torchman: Indeed! You have your story now, reporters! Now, begone!
reporters leave, and Torchman follows the S6 to their
Tim: (whispering): He's following us......
Scott (whispering): This is creepy.
Jason (whispering): I'll take care of this.
Jason: Listen, Torch. You can't come in.
Torchman: Very well. I shall leave you to your devices. But, beware.
I shall -
Andon: Yeah, yeah. Just get going already.
Narrator: The next morning, the six were watching the news and
to their great surprise -
O'Neil: We are outside Sinister Six headquarters
where Torchman is telling us of his new affiliation
with the Sinister Six Team!
Torchman: I am staying outside to guard against a sneak attack!
Rest assured that if anything attacks us, I will be
the very first on the job!
Tim: That bastard! He did this while we were asleep!
Jason: Just what is this guy trying to pull!?
Andon: I believe he is trying to weasel his way into our team.
Gary: But WHY!?
IRA: Well, I suppose the best way would simply be to ask
to the next scene - The S6 invite Torchman inside their
base to simply ask him what his plan is!)
Torchman: Wow. I've never actually been invited inside a hero's
Torchman: Oh, yeah. The Mechanical Maniacs never invited me in
either the Technodrome or their old warehouse. What
a buildup to know that the first Megaman team officially
Gary: Knock it off, zippy! We're not endorsing anything! We
just want to know what yer stupid plan is this Time!
Torchman: My plan? Well, why not?
IRA blasts the rest of the S6 aside!)
Tim: What!? IRA!! You've turned traitor!
IRA: That's right! You losers make me sick! I'll -
hits IRA with an Ice Slasher knocking him down!)
Scott: IRA..... Why'd he do it!?
Andon: Man ... to think of all the Times we've fought together!
Torchman: You saps are making me sick!!

counters with a seismic attack, causing a fissure to
open the floor up and bury Torchman!)
Gary: Tim!!! YOU'RE DESTROYING OUR BASE, MAN!!!
Tim: Um. Sorry. Got caught up in the moment....

Torchman: You'll lose more than that!

Gary: The base ... the base ... gotta save the base!!
charges at Tim, sending him into the wall, knocking
Gary: NO!!! NO!!! MY PRECIOUS WALL!!!
Torchman: So kind of you to invite me inside!
and Jason use their powers to try and box Torchman in,
but he is unaffected by their attacks!)
Jason: Dammit! When did Torch get so powerful!
Scott: I dunno, but it's starting to really bug me!
sends an array of fireballs out and sets Scott and Jason
down for the count!)
Gary: Now It's just you and me! YOU'LL PAY FOR DESTROYING
Torchman: I've been waiting a long, LONG Time for this!!!

flames burn the Eskimo!)
Gary: AAGH! How??
Torchman: Idiot. I've been preparing all these years! I've developed
a perfect counter to your stupid tricks! After all,
who else would know your weaknesses better than me?!
Gary: I dunno what yer babbling about, but I can still beat
uses all his Icy might to cover Torch in a prison of
Ice, but Torch merely melts everything Ice sends at
him, and finally, Iceman falls!)
Torchman: And finally you..... the pacifist.
Andon: That's right.
Torchman: You'll have to fight now, won't you!? All your stupid
ideals have no place in real world situations!
whirlwinds towards Andon and grabs him by the throat!)
Torchman: Admit it! When push comes to shove, you'll just become
a little hypocrite and shoot elec beams everywhere hoping
to smash something! After all, what other attack could
you possibly have!?

into Torch's causing a slight short in his electronic

Andon: Electronic spark to the brain. Didn't hurt one little
bit. Very peaceful.
so, the Sinister Six pull IRA out of the rubble and
await the authorities.)
Jason: I can't believe IRA stabbed us in the back like that.
Scott: I don't think so.

Tim, Andon, Jason: TORCHMAN!?!?
Scott: Yep. His blasts didn't feel nearly as bad as the ol'
Jason: Then it was never IRA at all. Torch must have captured
him right from the beginning!
Andon: Well, that's all well and good. But if that's Torch,
then who's ....?
pulls away Torch's mask revealing...)
Gary: ICEMAN RED!!!! So that's why Torch was so mad at me!
And why I couldn't beat him! Red's got about a bagillion
ways to counter my powers!
Scott: Well, alls well that ends well!
Tim: Some heroes we turned out to be. Didn't even see through
Torch's lame plot.
Jason: It wasn't so bad. At least we won!
Gary: WON!? JUST LOOK AT MY POOR, POOR BASE!!!! Oh well. Somehow
I feel like taking this out on Gauntlet. Maybe a strategically
placed whoopee cushion.....
Scott: Wait. Where's IRA???
so, in the basement of the old Mechanical Maniac's Warehouse,
IRA sits tied up and gagged with fireproof ropes. Awaiting
IRA (thought): 1 bottle of beer on the wall, 1 bottle of
beer! Take it down, pass it around no bottles of beer
on the wall!
IRA (thought): 99 bottles of beer on the wall, 99 bottles
