The Yellow Avenger

By LizzS

Action / Humor

Chapter 1: The Adventure Begins...

At a strange laboratory, there was a large pool of boiling chum. But hanging over the pool of chum, wrapped around in chains hanging from the ceiling was a sponge wearing a red blindfold-like mask, a purple cape with a long collar, and black boots and gloves.

Down below was Plankton as he laughed evilly and walked away. “See you later, Masked Fool! Mwa, ha, ha, ha!”

While the sponge was hanging over the pool of chum, he had a nervous look on his face unsure of what to do.

‘Wow, I never thought I’d be in this kind of predicament. But I guess this is what happens in the life of a superhero.’ SpongeBob’s voice began to narrate. ‘And that masked superhero you see before you is…well…it’s ME!’ Then he gasped. ‘But, shh! You can’t tell anyone that!’

Then suddenly, a bubble from the chum popped and splashed up near the masked superhero sponge, and it evaporated into smoke forming into the shape of a skull and crossbones, causing him to scream in fear.

Then it all suddenly froze.

‘But I guess I should start from the beginning of how I got into this unfortunate experience.’


Then a spinning blue background appeared with the title appearing as the announcer said, “The New Adventures of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy!”

‘Oh, I love this show!’ SpongeBob’s voice pointed out. ‘I wish I was watching it.’

In fact, SpongeBob WAS watching it right now on the couch of his living room along with Patrick.

’Oh! I am. Ha, ah, ah, ah!”

Then the MM&BB announcer narrated, “We join our heroes having their afternoon meal.”

SpongeBob and Patrick watched anxiously as on screen Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy walk over to their table just as they got their lunch from the cafeteria.

“You know, Patrick.” SpongeBob was saying.

“Yeah, SpongeBob?” Patrick replied.

“Wouldn’t it be cool to be a superhero?”

“Huh?” Patrick asked, not really paying attention to SpongeBob’s question.

“Wouldn’t it?” SpongeBob kept asking. “We’d get to fight crime, wear tight fitting costumes, and get super heroic names.”

On T.V., Mermaid Man was about to eat until he stopped. “Wait a minute!” Mermaid Man said. “They forgot my meatloaf.”

“Will our heroes ever get their meatloaf?” the announcer asked. “Tune in next week and find out.”
SpongeBob smiled as he calmly sighed. “Being a superhero would be totally cool.”

But then a news bulletin suddenly appeared on T.V. “We interrupt this program for an important announcement.”

Then SpongeBob stopped and wondered, “I wonder what can be wrong this time?”

On the television screen, Perch Perkins announced, “Some of you may be asking yourselves ‘what can be wrong this time?’. But the chaos that has ensued today is caused by none other than the Restaurant Bandit.”

SpongeBob and Patrick both gasped and held each other in fear when the news showed security cam footage of a green fish wearing a black ski mask and dark brown pants robbing a diner.

“It’s easy to see that he has been robbing restaurant after restaurant.” Perch announced. “But attempts at catching him have led to failure. If you have any news about this dangerous criminal please contact us immediately.”

Then SpongeBob shut off the T.V. as he stared at Patrick nervously. “Gee, I’m starting to get a little nervous that the Krusty Krab might be the next victim of that horrible criminal.”

“What horrible criminal?” Patrick asked.

“The Restaurant Bandit.” SpongeBob answered.

Patrick just stood there silent until he said, “I don’t get it.”

SpongeBob just sat there until his watch suddenly beeped. “Oh! I almost forgot. I promised Gary I would pick up a pizza for him.” He got off the couch and giggled. “If only I hadn’t lost that staring contest with him.”

“Ooh! Ooh!” Patrick shouted, jumping up and down. “Can you bring me a pizza?”

SpongeBob smiled and replied, “Sure thing, buddy. I’m on my way!”

When SpongeBob walked out the door, Patrick turned on the T.V. and leaned back on the couch. “Oh, I love this movie!” he said excitedly.


At a pizza restaurant, lots of customers were there, waiting for their pizza, along with SpongeBob. An orange fish lady employee at the counter called at the microphone, “Now serving…10.”

While SpongeBob was waiting in line for his number to be called out, he looked at his service number slip, and saw it had the number 80. Meaning his number won’t be called out for a LONG time.

But SpongeBob just smiled and shrugged. “Well…I do have to go to the bathroom anyway.”

When SpongeBob dashed to the restroom, the doors of the pizza place suddenly flew open and there stood a familiar figure. “Alright, nobody move!”

All the customers and employees gasped. “It’s the Restaurant Bandit!” a lady cried.


Meanwhile, in the bathroom, SpongeBob came out of a stall, happily singing a tune as he walked over to a sink.

Do, do, do, do, do, do.” He sang as he washed his hands. But when SpongeBob used the soap dispenser, nothing came out. “Hmm…”

He looked closer at it, wondering if there was any soap. Then he pushed the tab in, having soap squirt right into SpongeBob’s eyes.

“AAAHHHH!!!” SpongeBob cried in pain as he held his eyes and ran around the bathroom.

As he blindly ran around the bathroom in pain, his right foot got caught in a bucket, and stumbled back having his head get caught in a trashcan.


Outside the bathroom, the Restaurant Bandit was at the front counter as the cashier put the money in a sack for him.

“Come on, I don’t have all day!” the bandit demanded impatiently.

But then they stopped when they heard a high-pitched screaming, everyone looked to see SpongeBob stumble out of the bathroom still screaming with the bucket still on his foot, and the trashcan on his head, making it impossible to see his face.

“Who the heck are you?” the bandit asked.

But SpongeBob just blindly stumbled toward the bandit and stepped on his foot as the bandit cried in pain as he held his foot. Then the Restaurant Bandit looked angrily at SpongeBob. “Alright, now you’ve done it!”

But SpongeBob was now trying to get the trashcan off his head as he walked backward, but then fell right into a mop bucket that rolled backwards and bounced against the wall; rolling right into the bandit and pushing him back through a window to outside.

Once the customers opened their eyes to see the Restaurant Bandit was gone, one male fish said, “Oh my Neptune, that mysterious man just defeated the Restaurant Bandit!”

While the customers were talking, SpongeBob was in the corner, still trying to get the can off his head, but then stumbled backwards into a garbage chute.

“Who are you, strange hero?” the customer asked until he and everyone else noticed he was gone.

“Where’d he go?” a woman fish asked.

“He is truly a modest hero.” A male fish stated in amazement.

When SpongeBob went down the shoot, he landed in a dumpster outside the restaurant. The bandit was outside in the alley next to it as he growled, angrily injured from SpongeBob. “If I ever see that guy again, he is so dead.”

Then he walked away as SpongeBob came out from the dumpster, having finally removed the trashcan from his head and was now recovered.

“Oh…” SpongeBob groaned. “Did I miss something?”
