A Short PPG Elseworld Story: Fury - Cover
This is something that is really, really old. I made it, but never uploaded it because I didn't really like where it was going. But, I haven't been updating very much lately so here it is.
Note this is not related to the other PPG stuff I've done. This is a dark story future thing that might NEVER EVER happen. Mainly because I wouldn't want something like this to happen.
This is something that IS NOT going to be a very long thing. It will only be three pages long not including the title cover. It was originally going to be a longer story, but I decided to cut it very short for certain reasons.
That is Butch in the background by the way.
The reason why this is going to be so short will be more explained in the descriptions of each page, but the main reason will be under the final page which will be uploaded today along with the others. Sorry that the cover isn't very interesting though.

Just in case this is not explained well enough because I decided to cut all this down to just three pages. Basically, certain people were getting tired of the RRB doing basically what ever they wanted. So they hired Hardley to help them make Antidote-X which zaps these super mutant kids of their powers. It somehow led to the deaths of both Boomer and Brick.
So yeah that's kind of dark I know. What even darker is that originally I was going to have Butch mention that he had been going on a war path and murdering everyone who was involved in it. I decided to take that out and have Butch's one and only target for murder be Hardley himself.

By this point I was losing interest in this and the lack of quality shows I think.
You might be able to see why I stopped her. This is just too dark. And coming form me, that's something. I wouldn't mind if it was just dark, but its also so bleak and depressing and the rest of the story would just be even more so. It just seemed so wrong and out of place and just so NOT the kind of PPG comic I wanted to make. There was a serious lack of any fun or joy and the whole thing seemed like it would be painful to make.
Even if I do make a dark PPG story line, I would still want it to have some humor and some fun to it so it would be more interesting and like the show. This had none of that and I decided to stop where I was with it.
Months latter here we are.
I want to stress that in my own little PPG head canon, this whole comic never really happened. I don't know what I'll do with the RRB, mainly because I don't like them that much and just don't care for them at all, but I don't think they deserve this.
Anyways this was originally going to be a longer story about Butch trying to take revenge over the death of his brothers with Hardley being his main target.
FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE MORBIDLY CURIOUS, HERE'S WHAT THE REST OF THE STORY WOULD HAVE BEEN LIKE:
In this story Hardley had survived the fire, but not without a few bad burns and his mutation turning him into something really ugly. He would be regular human size though. The story would go on with Mojo finding out about all this, helping Butch escape where they were keeping him (they would have given Butch Antidote X to take his powers away, but Mojo would give him a shot of X to regain them).
Together Butch and Mojo would find out where Hardley was hiding and track him down and Mojo would let Butch beat the living shit out of Hardley. After beating Hardley to a bloody pulp, Butch would grab Hardley by the head and stair into his eyes as he crushed his skull with his own two hands, and I'm talking smashing it flat.
With Hardley being all super murdered the story would end with one last battle between Butch and Buttercup. As it turns out though the X that Mojo gave Butch is unstable and Butch was slowly dying. Mojo didn't think Butch was stable enough to be able to live anything close to a normal life so he saw it as a mercy killing. Butch would actually be surprisingly fine with it though.
Anyways the fight between Butch and Buttercup would go one until the unstable X would start to make Butch all explodey. And in Butch's final moment he wouldn't be fighting with Buttercup, he would be trying to hug her, like a normal brother and sister would, because he just wanted to hold onto something else living before he died. Even if it was someone who hated him, and I was really going to play up how much Buttercup hated Butch.
Buttercup struggles at first thinking Butch is only trying to damage her in the explosion, but she realizes what he's really trying to do and she actually hugs him back. Butch dies in a massive green explosion and Buttercup is unharmed. Mojo turns himself in without a fight. The end.
So, yeah... I have no more interest in this. Its just so dark and depressing and so alien to the original show that I don't like it at all. I figure though since I haven't uploaded anything in a while, it might be interesting to show this to you all.
Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to go draw some more PPG fanart that's more fun.
