Prologue

- 5 years ago -

"Good evening, everyone, I'm a Darla Gretchen. Tonight, the continuing story about how the ozone layer crack is effecting the wildlife. Tonight, again, activist and biologist Harold Breeze offers his insight...Mr. Breeze, around six months ago you described that when the ozone layer cracked it would eventually spell the end of days."

"Correction, Darla, I said the atmosphere would become unbearable for human life."

"And yet six months later, we're still here. Mr. Breeze, I understand that you are taking these developments in interesting ways. Despite scientists constantly assuring use that these new, evolutions, as I would say will not be affecting a larger scale."

"To humans precisely."

"Do you have any evidence to back this up, one in which the scientists have aplenty?"

"No, but think about this Darla - a lot of life on this planet shares it's biology with one another."

"That maybe true, Mr. Breeze, but does this mean you are dropping the end of days theory?"

"Let me say this - It was a relief that these renewable energy sources are patching and healing up the ozone layer, but not only me, but other scientists can tell you that the sun is reaching its end days. The solar flares have cracked our ozone layer and we have appeared, but mark my words, the flares will spread farther and stronger. And seeing how scientists have discovered how they will effect living things, who knows what will happen to the humans...do you viewers?

"Okay, I think that about wraps it up for Mr. Breeze."

"Good evening everyone, this is Darla Gretchen, tonight we invite speaker and activist Harold Breeze back on air. Not a lot of is known at the moment, but due to some comments made at a march last night, we thought we should invite Mr. Breeze back on."

"Good evening, Darla."

"So tell me, Mr. Breeze, what is everyone so worked up about? Word says that when you are asked about your position and stance about the Zeroes you had a what is said as a controversial response."

"Zeroes, huh, that's funny. You know what I think? Ever since those flares starting effecting everything around them, people didn't know what to do. They'd be like, "Oh, this is cool, pow, pow, oh look, that's pretty." I couldn't believe it, especially seeing a middle aged man running around a little kid with these new abilities and not having a care in the world about it. Oh, yeah, and these Zeroes. Well, they are doing a sh*t job, huh? Let's see - no one keeps them in check, they're young, and every so called attempt on 'saving the day' even on the simplest of things results in disaster. I really don't understand why people keep defending them, if they keep getting people hurt and the public doesn't like them, they need to be taken out."

"Are you saying all humans with abilities are to be taken out?"

"Look, Darla, I've lost hope in whatever these 'Zeroes' or anything promise to be 'heroes'. Put in the fact that they can't be trusted to control themselves, hence, take them out."

"I think we should go to commercial."

They should have different names a...
