LAST TIME WE SAW MYSTERIOUS MAX, WE WAS TRYING TO HELP A YOUNG WOMAN KEEP POSESSION OF HER MONEY-FILLED PURSE…
“Help! Somebody save me!” Mysterious Max kicked the armed thug and said, “Your momma’s so fat that when she sat on the rainbow, skittles popped out!” The thug began to cry. “Don’t make fun of my mommy!”
Then Max took the purse and gave it back to the lady. He led the thug to the jail and informed the guard of the villain’s weakness.
“Thank you, soldier,” the guard said and saluted. Mysterious Max subtly snitched the Butterfinger in the guard’s pocket, then flew bacck home.
Max: “Mom, do we have any kiwi?”
MMM (Mysterious Max’s Mother): “Sorry, kiddo, you ate it all last night. I swear, you devour that stuff like Popeye devours spinach!”
Max froze. How could she know? How could she have found out that kiwi was the secret to his powers?
Max shook off the thought and went to get his wallet. He shook is upside down, but there was no money in it. He tried hard to make a twenty dollar bill appear in his wallet, but he was too weak from lack of kiwi. He sighed a shuffled out the front door. He’d have to permanently borrow some kiwi from the grocery story for his powers. In plain English, for the first time in his super-human life, Max Lent would have to steal. DOES MAX’S MOTHER REALLY KNOW MAX’S SECRET? WILL MYSTERIOUS MAX REALLY BE PUSHED TO THE POINT OF STEALING? FIND OUT NEXT TIME IN THE YEAR 2000 (OUR IDEA)
