Welcome back to your daily dose of MASK! We’ve made it through an entire work week! You think you’re excited? Feel these nipples!
Right into the action today:
VENOM hijacks a satellite station and broadcasts a hypnotic message to turn a town full of people into mindless workers. During the attack, a scientist escapes and runs to civilization. Basically the TV station he was working at was so out of the way that he apparently runs for miles until he is almost run over on a one-lane road by MASK Agent, Gloria Baker who takes him to Matt Trakker’s compound.
Trakker immediately puts out the call for applicable MASK agents and Brad Turner is forced to cancel band practice to continue his secret life of MASK-ing.
In all seriousness, this is only episode 5 and I’m shocked his band hasn’t kicked him out to replace him yet.
VENOM also hijacks a military transport coming through the town where they’ve hypnotized all the citizens and use the people to move and assemble a top-secret laser cannon.
MASK finally catches up with VENOM and is able to break the hypnosis over the townspeople, but not before Miles Mayhem is able to shoot the super weapon.
Matt Trakker is able to use his mask to change the laser light which is sure to cause incredible destruction, into sunlight which just causes a slammin’ tan.
Mayhem and his cronies escape.
Probably the best episode so far since I’ve finally given up on getting an explanation for anything. The ending was stupid as fuck. How in the fuck is this dude just going to turn a laser beam into sunlight with his mask? Where do these new mask powers keep coming from?
Ladder safety. Make sure it’s balanced. Falling off ladders can be bad. Solid advice.
On the Meltzer scale: **1/2*
Like I said, this was better, but that still doesn’t make it good. Especially with that corny ass ending. That was Sheamus levels of whack.
At least this was decent. Hopefully, episode 6 will keep the ball rolling.
